Day1 (June 18)
- UltraDavid and James Chen won't be at the event. Now you have a chance to witness one of the worst commentators in the community.
- In case you want to know, Mago and Tokido is in Japan.
- FYI, Umehara doesn't use female characters. It's not a rule, it's due to his preference, from observation from the previous games. If he chooses a female character in MvC3, it'll be noteworthy. (Amaterasu is female, by the way.)
- First picture of Umehara playing MvC3.
- Reported by MarkMan: Umehara's MvC3 team is Wolverine, Dante, Akuma! He already won 2 matches in Winners bracket.
- Video1:Video2: One of the first footages of Umehara playing MvC3 in pool. (not on stream)
- Picture: Umehara in one of his MvC3 matches.
- Tokido's reaction when Umehara appeared on stream for the first time for MvC3.
- Picture:Video: Umehara vs. Lamerboi (MvC3) Umehara won, making him "never lose to Lamerboi on both SF4 and MvC3"
- Picture1:Picture2:Picture3: Umehara vs. John Choi vs. NOS girls
- [MvC3 Pool Final] Umehara lost to Floe. He went to Losers but won Lamerboi again, so he's in top 8 now. (play again tomorrow)
- [AE] Umehara 2-0 Harris.
- [AE] Umehara 2-1 Larry S
- [AE] Umehara 2-0 Air.
- Umehara won Street Fighter II Turbo (reported by Alex Valle)
- [AE] It looks like the stream went down after Choi vs. Infiltration match as iPlayWinner wrote: "Hotel pulled our internet ='( BUT we are using a 4g card to keep the stream up and goin for the rest of the night!"
- [AE Pool Final] Picture: Umehara 2-0 Wolfkrone. He's now in top 8, Winners bracket. (play again tomorrow)
- Highlight:Video: Filipino Champ storming off.
- Umehara still used Mad Catz's prototyped SFxTekken stick.

Day 2 (June 19)
- Picture: Beauty and the Beast by Alex Valle
- I thought Umehara didn't join MvC3 Team, I was wrong. He's on the same team with Ricky Ortiz and F. Champ. And they're in Winners bracket now. (reported by MarkMan)
- Picture1:Picture2: Umehara and MvC3 money matches.
- [MvC3 Team] Umehara lost to Justin Wong. It looks like his team is out now.
- [AE Single] Umehara 2-0 Marn.
- [AE Single Winners Final] Umehara won Infiltration.
- Picture:Video: They're waiting for Vangief. Umehara is using Ryu against F. Champ in exhibitions. (Ryu 2-3 Dha, Yun 3-0 Dha)
- [AE Single Grand Final][Picture1:Picture2] Umehara won Infiltration (again)
- [MvC3 Single] Umehara 1-2 X-Ray. He's out now and got 7th place in his first tournament.
- Note that Umehara will received his first Evo seed points (of AE and MvC3) from this tournament. (Evo seed points makes you play less matches in Evo's pools.)
- Video: Umehara in rock-paper-scissors match.
- [MvC3 Team] I just discovered this video. It shows that it's Ricky/F.CHamp/Umehara Team that put Noel Brown/Floe/Justin Wong Team into Losers bracket.(?) The last game was Umehara vs. Justin Wong, and Umehara won with a comeback. (I think it's Darry who said welcome to America in the background when he thought Wong was going to win.)

NorCal commentators
A guy on GAF posted this: "NorCal is where a couple guys asked a girl on stream if she's ever seen a penis before and how much it'll cost for her to flash them. The video was deleted (unsurprisingly), I'll upload it now. That's their "raw" style, they're proud of it" with video. (streamed by iPlayWinner)

Magus & Darry
Magus improved a lot from the last year, he actually did a good job from the clips I saw. His play-by-play was good. Darry, on the other hand, couldn't get any worse. What he said in Umehara vs. Floe match was a big disgrace.

Ryu or Yun?
The exhibition between Umehara and F.Champ attracted more than 55,000 views, more than 5,000 comment, more than 700 Favorites on Nico in 2 days. Though viewers prefer Ryu, it looks like Yun's beatdown was more entertaining to see. Capcom wins?
