Nico Nico Douga Guide

This post will teach you how to create your own account at Nico Nico Douga (http://www.nicovideo.jp or http://live.nicovideo.jp) Your account can access both links.

NND is like the Japanese version of Youtube, only that you need an account to watch live shows (if you know the link to it)

Step 1: Sign In

Go to either http://www.nicovideo.jp or http://live.nicovideo.jp and look for ログイン (Log In) It's at the top, somewhere near mid-right.

Or alternately, go to https://secure.nicovideo.jp/secure/login_form and you'll be at Step 2

Step 2: Sign Up

I guess from here onwards, the screencaps will do the talking xD

Step 3: Normal User

Step 4: Email used to sign up NND

Step 5: Filling in the particulars

Step 6: Captcha

Step 7: Email verification

Once everything is done (and you should arrive yourself at the screen above), check you inbox or junk mail. Click on the link to verify your email and you're done~

To log out, move your cursor to the red arrow and a list will appear. Click on the one I highlighted in red.

If there's any question, do comment but I think it should be okay if you follow the guide above. Hope it's not too confusing xD


The part that fooled me forever and made logging in a pain, is that you log in using your email address, not your User name!

May I ask, how do you find shows?
Oh! I should take a note of that too. This guide still needs to improvise =3

Shows as in live shows? Go to live.nicovideo.jp then type in the show at the search. It should be the one beide 'Nico Nico Live'

I think you need to type the show in Japanese unless the show name has English words. [Guess I'll do a guide on that soon]

thank you so much for this guide. i've been wanting an account here forever!!
Your welcome~
I will bookmark this. oh! No! I will add it to the links on my journal in case I'll need this in the future! :) Thank you to your efforts~! :D
