Umehara Believer winners announced

The winners of "Umehara Believer" campaign was announced just an hour ago. It's like a dream, but Gama no Abura, Nagoya Street Battle organizer and one of the true Umehara fanboys, won it. ChocoBlanka also won it.

In March, people who bought Arcadia Extra Vol.84 got a chance to win "Umehara Shinja" (ウメハラ信者 or Umehara Believer) title for their Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition card*. From his tweet a couple months ago, Gama-san apparently bought more than one. And ChocoBlanka also sent 2 postcards.

*NESYS card used to record and track your data and stats in arcade game centers. You can modify your character this way.

Anyway, Acqua, another true Umehara fanboy, didn't make it. He said he "wants to cry" because he wants it so much. I feel very sorry for him, because on the same day he just had a traffic accident. He got hit by a car sending him flying away for about 2 metres.... He (miraculously) suffered only a minor injury but he said that was closest to death.

Update 1: Gama-san accidentally cancelled his ID that has the title....
Update 2: ChocoBlanka was so excited. She went out immediately and came back with a picture of her "Umehara Believer."
