TOPANGA Charity Cup announced

I had to double check that this's not an April's Fool joke!

Another fighting game charity event for Japan earthquake/tsunami relief is announced. It's SSF4AE, it's in Japan, AND THERE'LL BE DAIGO UMEHARA! AND it's April 23! (AND IT'S ON USTREAM, NOT JUSTIN.TV!!!!!111)

*entrance fee = 1,000 yen

TOPANGA looks like a collaboration between the people behind beastdaigo.jp and Shoryuken.com/Evolution. From the name, maybe this's SRK/Evo's proposal.

Since TOPANGA is actually "A Japanese player's association" not just an event, It'd be great if TOPANGA comes to help GODSGARDEN and brings some hype back. Right now, GG is very weak, Evo Japan was cancelled (they didn't use the word "postponed" on GG official site) and there's no planned event. There's no stream, even there's a stream, some people prefer to watch AE. After the disaster, it's safe to say the scene is dying. The fans need something at least until GG can stream (console) AE.
