I published updated guides on how to register and how to use Nico Nico Video on Asiajin (12/31/2010).

My review of Japanese Youtube “killer” Nico Nico Douga has you hooked?

Learn here how to register for the site in English. Please follow the instructions given in the screenshots below.

Also, please remember:
At certain times, Nico Nico blocks registration for basic membership. In that case try a few hours later.



As for your location, please choose “その他(海外など)” which means “Other (outside Japan)”.

After the final step, a page appears stating you have to confirm the registration within 24 hours by clicking on the link the service sends to you via Email after this registration process.

After clicking the confirmation link you will be directed to a “welcome” page. Make sure to choose the link on the right as shown in the screen shot below.

Do so and you are ready to go!

You can find more information on Nico Nico Douga on Joi Ito’s Web Log in Fumi Yamazaki’s excellent article.
