NJPW World Has Arrived

Recommended Posts

Well, it was announced today that 18,000 members of the NJPW Fan Club have had their information stolen. Apparently this doesn't effect NJPW World members but they may have disabled credit card billing just in case.

Wow, kinda makes me glad I unsubscribed when I did.

Hopefully you are not automatically a "Fan Club" member when you join NJPW world.  Don't remember ever looking at that part of the membership.

Did you get a certificate in the mail and a cassette tape with all of the NJPW superstars' entrance music?

Well, I don't know, if that necessarily means you're safe. They could still have your information stored somewhere.

The Fan Club has been around for a few years and was for people to purchase tickets to shows.

Partial Dominion thoughts -

 

Skimmed through the show this morning - really enjoying spending a bit more time with the matches I cared about. Haven't gotten through everything, but the main event was an all-time great. All of the finishing stuff at the end...damn, that was Flair-Steamboat slick there. IC Title match had the right result, and the heavyweight tag title match was about what it needed to be and the best match between the teams so far.

OMG. I finally manage to watch a big New Japan show without stupidly stumbling into spoilers beforehand, and god god god damn this was a perfect show. Amazing card top to bottom, dream audience and a ridonculous main event that had me bouncing around the room. <3 <3 <3

Signed up for NJPW World for G1. 

 

I'm sure these questions have been answered but basically I pay for the rest of July (8 bucks and change American) and then at the first of August I pay another 8 bucks and change for that month, correct?

 

I figured that to search for wrestler I have to use the Japanese translation of their name. Is it the same to search for full shows?

 

Thanks!

Okay, I'm a Luddite - How do I search for American wrestlers, like...Scott Norton or something...

You have to use the katakana for the names.  There's a link to a handy spreadsheet somewhere in the thread that'll help a ton.

Use CHrome.

 

Translate to ENglish (Right click in an open space)

 

Then go to the Fighters tab

Today's show looked rather poopy on paper but turned out to be spectacular. White/Finley was a really fun young lions match, the Shibata vs. Naito six man was great, as it furthered their feud and really ignited the Ibushi vs. Makabe feud that carried over from the G1. Lots of fun. Juice looked solid and hopefully he can win the fans over, as they're not reacting to him at all. He should be able to if he keeps working tours, as all of his stuff was crisp and at a fast pace. Okada and Yano made for a fun team in a decent li'l match. The main event was a blast but had a disappointing and anticlimactic finish. So good to have Kenny Omega back, and it was neat to see him work with the big boys from the Bullet Club. "Give me a bootski." They worked over Tenzan's mullet, too.

So apparently the October 12th show is going to broadcast in English?   Do we know who the announcers are for the show?

Kevin Kelly and Matt Stryker, thus guaranteing that I keep it on the Japanese feed.

Could it actually be worse? I'm having a hard time imagining a single more suck ass (non indy) announce team.

So how far back does the New Japan World archive go? Do they have WPW shows archived too?

Has anyone been getting horrible buffering issues in the last couple weeks?   I can't watch a full match without it stopping at least 2 times now a day.

Currently up, two special sections. The History of Okada vs Tanahashi, with pretty much all their matches from Okada's first title win until now.

And Nakamura's greatest hits.

Does anyone use the NJPW android app? Any reviews?

I think it just links you to the site and allows you to use the media player.  You can Chromecast now which is a huge improvement from when they started.

My dream is that one day NJPW World will get a Roku app.  Then it will be Shinya Hashimoto 24/7

You'll burn through those 40 matches real quick.

Shinya Hashimoto 24/1.

Seriously though, there is a lot they could do to improve the service and enough time has passed that they have seen areas that could be better. Apparently it is still hard/impossible to change the form of payment, the lack of english subtitles is a bit mind-boggling, and they could add a lot more to the archives. I am currently not a member but I'd probably have to sign back up if they suddenly dropped a lot more classic footage. But I don't see their numbers so maybe there is a reason they aren't putting too much effort into it.
