Best of Daigo Umehara 2010 Edition

These are the best plays of Daigo Umehara in 2010 chosen by me and from my memory. (not in any order)

1. "UmeCopter" to bait Kindevu's Ultra in Tougeki 2010 Final. (He later used it again on YHC Mochi and F. Champ.)

2. Fullscreen hard punch Dhalsim's arm into super in Season's Beatings IV exhibition.


3. "Umehara Ranbu" in the last round of GGO2 qualifier match against YHC Mochi. (He later used it again on Uryo in the second stage.)

Umehara Ranbu is what the Japanese fans call that big combo. The name was from Ryuuko Ranbu move in Art of Fighting game used by Ryo, Robert, and Yuri.

4. Walk across the screen to throw in a match in SoCal's Pool B. (Day 1)

5. FA > combo > Ex Tatsu > Ex Fireball > Ex Tatsu on Kindevu.

6. Flying Buster Drop reaction on Mago in Canada Cup's Winners bracket final.

7. Shoryuken reaction from Hadoken. The best way to end Evo 2010. For projectile characters, the fastest way to die is shooting, (due to recovery and reaction interval) but Umehara shows why he's an exception. The last Shoryuken was fast and also unexpected.
