It's preview time! In Part 1 of our look ahead to the new top flight campaign, we go on a tour of the islands outside of Honshu, and SPOILER ALERT(!) things don't look particularly rosy.
First cab off the rank is Sapporo (to 17:43), then Jon Steele, from our smash hit spinoff Extra Time, hops on board to discuss the two promoted teams, Tokushima (to 36:40) and Fukuoka (to 54:40).
Then we continue with the other two Kyushu teams, Tosu (to 1:01:47) and Oita.
