In April 2011, [[http://www.niconico.com a long-awaited, mostly functional English version]] was added and is currently in beta. Also, an option to purchase premium memberships by [=PayPal=] was added, allowing international members without JCB cards or [=WebMoney=] vouchers to purchase it. There is also [[http://www.mmcafe.com/nico.html a redirector]] that allows viewing videos without having an account at the Japanese website.

On October 17, 2012, a full English version of the site was launched, rendering niconico.com obsolete.

Nico Nico Douga (ニコニコ動画) is a Japanese video-sharing service much like Website/YouTube. In fact, it started out as an online Website/YouTube front-end before they were blocked from loading videos off Website/YouTube servers. Now they host their own videos (for most language versions; for the English version they have somehow been allowed to do this again). Its trademark feature is the ability to add timed scrolling or subtitle-style captions to a playing video instead of offering a regular comments page like Website/YouTube. This solves one problem (multiple pages required to see all comments on a Website/YouTube video) while introducing a whole new one (see "Bullet Hell" below). Additionally, it has two features not originally seen on Website/YouTube [[note]]Well, the live broadcast for Website/YouTube eventually spawned.[[/note]] -- one is the "live broadcast", which is exactly what it sounds like, usually a concert or anime, and the other is the "International NicoNico Film Festival", where people compete to make a short film based upon a certain theme; there is a cash prize.

* LetsPlay: Players will record their playthroughs of some games and upload them with voiceover, much like how Western players do so, [[CaptainObvious except the voiceover is in Japanese]]. In some cases, these players may end up [[http://nicovideo.jp/search/fps playing through Western games]]. In rarer cases, ''crossovers'' may be used in the case of silent voiceover. Who knew VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} could be matched up with VideoGame/TheIdolMaster, [[http://nicovideo.jp/watch/sm17943731 of all things]] (Or to be more accurate, Hibiki Ganaha as [[TheHero Chell]])?

* {{Troll}}: Since comments scroll a crossed the video instead of being forced to the comments section which you can ignore, naturally, this can and often is [[{{GIFT}} used in the exact way you'd expect.]] Thankfully, it's ([[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish usually]]) not a problem if you don't know Japanese.

* {{Vocaloid}}: Their popularity started here, and later spread throughout the rest of the internet, with some of these available on Website/YouTube. Since the voices are samples transformed into computer-generated sounds, almost any user can make a Vocaloid tune and post it up. The majority of them are usually [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome very good]].

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Version 1 of the Chinese site. It was little more than a script that Babelfished the Japanese site, leaving gaping holes in the translation and made the site hopelessly confusing in others. This is because it only had one meaning programmed in for each word and would translate part of words that weren't meant to be translated partially. When they released the Spanish and German translations they went and actually made a proper translation for the Chinese site.
