If I wanted to start watching Chikara whats a good place without going all the way back to the start. If you could break it up into chapters that would be awesome. Thanks for your help.
IMO, the BDK era is a hell of a starting point. The years were 2009-2010. This gives you a pretty recent starting point where you can keep up with things, while giving you plenty of history (2000-2008) to check into in your spare time.
2011 Chikara was amazing and by the accounts of a lot of diehard fans, the best year in company history. I would agree with that. 2009 Season Finale through High Noon (2011 Season Finale) is pretty much where I'd have you start. Such a fantastic run of shows. The BDK arc basically ends at High Noon when Tursas and Ares are both pretty much killed off.
