    This isn't exactly considered news, some of you may have seen or received a warning from JVA. I got mine through Volley Tomo notif and it says that they will strictly impose the no entry rule during the men's tournament for anyone both locals and foreigners caught wearing fake NT jerseys of players. The men's official merch will have some type of QR sticker thingy as well as an extra patch. I guess they finally caught on the ones making a lot of money selling bootleg jerseys on sites like Shopee.

    I expect them to do well in the next match with Turkey. They've already built up the confidence, the connections in both offense and defense are getting better. Even if they don't end up winning as long as they don't make it easy to defeat them is what really makes them fun to watch. all that effort is going to matter in the long run

    Hadouken Mode Wada, Airi and Yamada let's see it:teach:

    who is that? is she at least as good as any of the main setters in the league?

    Setter from the Philippines. Probably the most well known here since she came from a top university. The Japanese equivalent of Waseda.

    I'm not really the best person to ask this since like I said she is my least liked setter. There's nothing about her that particularly stands out to me in fact I always thought her tosses I would say in Tagalog the term is "bitin" or insufficient in English. I don't know if I can compare her to any setter in V League. Sorry

    aside from araki, the only player that hasn't been seen at camp is seki. matsui and shibata are there. the ones who didn't play during vnl:watanabe, meguro and tanaka are also there. but no sign of seki yet.

    Seki is with them. Mayu updated her Story. They're currently in Okinawa.

    whats volleytomo?

    It's JVA's exclusive members thingy

    When you sign up you also get access to exclusive interviews and features that aren't shown anywhere. You can buy premium tickets via lottery faster than anywhere else.

    p.s. when you buy your tickets for the nagoya tournament you also get sent a volleytomo offer and there's a bunch of stuff you can do to gain freebies at the venue

    I finally get to watch them live tomorrow!

    I got an email from volleytomo that Miyu's jersey is sold out and they won't be selling it at the venue only the fan so we're going to buy Yamada's since Koga's jersey is also sold out but it can be preordered via volleytomo for members which will come with their VT merch too. Is anyone else subscribed to that? They're also holding early tickets for OQT on their site so I entered it not that I have anymore budget to go to Japan by that time ;(

    You bet I do but I've barely seen her play since the last SEAG :(

    Also, what happened to the other MB she was paired with in that tournament? Madayag? I liked her a lot, too. I think she got injured

    Majoy will forever be my favorite. I want her to play overseas especially in Japan but it seems she doesn't want that.

    Madayag tore her ACL in 2021. According to PT Beth, she is steadily regaining her strength but for her sake she won't be competing with the NT for awhile.

    I finally got tickets. I can only afford one day and we're departing the very next morning. June 4 during the match against China. I'm so excited:cheesy: hopefully Miyu makes the VNL roster!!!

    I had no idea it was like that:pinch: we were able to watch VNL in Hong Kong last 2019 without any issues

    We don't know anyone in Japan...

    you have to say more about that some time . I haven't heard that description before, and am not sure how to parse it (maybe in the NT thread we could bang it around)

    I was just thinking her experience would be nice. She seems brain-y to me. The kids have their charm but make me a little nervous when things get hairy

    I don't know if you were able to follow the drama with Wolosz saying Maja was the worst setter years ago but she herself said that they're both the "feeling type" only Maja doesn't give a damn and the spiker has to go with her flow not theirs and that's not Wolosz style. I think that's how it is with aggressive setters in that in their own world when they're on the court they feel things not what spikers tell them to do or something like that. I'm bad at explaining these things :wacko:
