Well hi everyone, I'm here to show you a quick guide on how to register on Nico Nico Douga and Pixiv. Why do you need to? Because both are important sites for fans of Japanese animation and art. Nico Nico Douga is sorta like the Youtube for Japan I guess you could say. Pretty much all those Miku Hatsune music videos and MMD videos you like to watch were first on Nico. Pixiv is sorta like the Japanese version of DeviantART. Where artists show off they're drawings and collect feedback and whatnot. I like to browse all my favorite artists and see previews of their latest doujinshi they're going to release.
First up Nico Nico Douga. If you know Chinese , German, or Spanish they have those language options if you wish. I know a little Spanish from high school so I chose that.
And congrats! You now have a Nico Nico Douga account! You can browse all the MMD and MAD's you want. Here's a couple random videos to celebrate. These ones are NSFW
These ones are safe
Now for Pixiv:
Click this first
And now you're done!
And if my guide wasn't good enough there's one over at Danbooru but they don't have a fancy picture guide like mine.
If you have any questions feel free to jump on over to the IRC channel and I'll at least try to answer them.
