- There're many well-known players/persons in Japan's FGC in this charity event. Some people you saw on the stream in the background are well-known in the community but they don't go to a tournament, especially female players.
- Many people came to this event even they live far away. (IIRC YHC-Mochi lives in the south-west coast of Japan 800 kilometers away)
- From the facts above, this is easily the biggest Street Fighter tournament in Japan because you don't normally see those people in the same venue like this.
- 95.8% of viewers rated the show on the main stream "Extremely good."
- The show ended with more than 166,000 attendees and more than 186,000 comments.

- Kao TV team
- Kao TV team after the final
- Peace! and more (Umehara, Tokido, Nuki, sako, Haitani)
- Players in a restaurant after the event: Table 1 (Umehara, Shiro, Fuudo, Momochi, Choco, Eita, Haitani, Kindevu) Table 2 (Nyanshi, R, Uryo, Mago, Tokido, Bon-chan, sako, Nuki)
