Nico Nico Douga: Getting Started with the YouTube of Japan

Posted by Michael Pinto on Apr 29, 2009 in Animation, Tech |

If you’re any sort of anime fanboy (or fangurl) you’re going to want to sign up for Nico Nico Douga which is almost like a Japanese version of YouTube (in fact the first version of Nico Nico Douga used YouTube as a source). However most fans get turned off as you need to register to see any videos and the entire interface is in Japanese (although there are Spanish and German interfaces available if you know those languages). The other nice thing about the site is that it encourages users to post high quality video.

To make it easy to get started I put together the first three steps to get you to he right spot. This is where you click on the homepage:

Nico Nico Douga - Here's where you have to click on the homepage

Next you get to this screen where you click on the big button on the left:

Nico Nico Douga: Step 2

And then you get to the registration screen (at which point you may want to refer to the video):

By the way one of my favorite tools for translating pages is the 1-click translation from Google which goes in your toolbar. You just drag the language of your choice to your toolbar (in this case it’s Japanese) and then click the button for a translation.
