Japan - V.League V1 (Division 1, Women) 2021-2022

  • isn't kelsey's team bad?

    Ahem ... They are in , let's say , transition. Their setter doesn't have a good reputation, they started three high schoolers, their best hitter is out with injury, Matsumoto (you won't get that one), and I'm not sure if they have a libero. It's going to be tough for them. I think they drafted well for the long haul, and think they could find a rotation that could be competitive:


    S: Yamagishi (no choice)

    MB: Suda / Hattaya (Sugihara)

    Pins: KRob / Yabuta (C) / Yukiho Hara (the one out with injury unknown--she is the important one).

    And they have a few kids for subs that aren't bad

  • How do you guys stream Korean V League?


    Nishida and Sekita are both complaining that it's impossible to watch V League overseas lol

    Some of us use VPN to watch live streams on Korean websites like Naver or AfreecaTV. If you don't have a VPN, you still catch some of the matches but this depends on the channel the game is broadcasted as there is a decent non authorised stream of this particular channel online.


    For replays, some kind souls out there do upload them onto youtube but recently some of the channels have been taken down.


    If you have a VPN, you can still access the old matches online free of charge. I post these links with my match stats posts.

  • I use VTV and I can watch on an even clearer video than that Coach Dude photo in the post above. I generally do not use VPN also, since there's a VTV link where we do not need it, although I noticed that there are times that the quality is better on the main link. The video quality are also different per venue, and some games yesterday that I watched are better than the others. It's not as good as EurovolleyTV quality, but they are still better than the current volleyballworldTV Italian Women's league which has really bad lighting and some technical issues, for some reason. :aww:


    My issue on VTV is more of the lag in the livescore. The livescore is not live and sometimes incorrect. There was even a match that showed something like 19-1 yesterday, when it should be 19-21. I panicked for a bit lol. I sometimes just open the livescore for some matches since they are on the same schedule.

  • Here's an article about VL's broadcasting plans you might be interested in sitenoise. I skimmed it kinda... https://www.nikkansports.com/s…news/202110180000540.html


    Since volleyball world keeps hyping up male Japanese players how come they don't help Japan with its streaming services? they pander to all the delusional haikyu fans so why not help the sport be more accessible?


    It's ridiculous for vleague to expect more subscribers with their basic ass streams especially if you consider how dry "joshi bare" has become.

    V.League having foreign players may mean it is geoblocked if they reach agreement with Volleyball World, with Thai TV possibly having agreements with the league.

    That would solve all the problems I have with VTV, and justify the price increase, if they post clips of the bench players making goofy faces at one another on the tweetbox or instagerm :aww:

  • Currently watching Denso - PFU and I'm about to lose my mind over 4T and her three thousand different roles :sos:

    That was pretty cool :!:

    She's going to be the difference maker for PFU

  • Speaking of PFU ... I always wondered what kind of player Hinano Arita would be. She's 180, listed as MB, and in the four years prior to this one with PFU, she's taken 5 swings total.


    It's a little odd -- and part of the complicated system PFU is rolling out -- given PFU's abundance of quality pin hitters this year that they would convert her to OH/OP and give her playing time ?(

  • Thanks to Saitama's lollypop serving , Okayama MB Mayu Oikawa is ranked 4th in Service Reception : 14 Excellents on 21 Touches :cheesy:

  • and Okayama keep serving at Yamagishi ?(

    I'll have to watch the matches again. Was Saitama hiding Yuka Sato? Reception is not her strong suit
