The stream
The stream is in iPhone quality, but since camera usually isn't allowed in game centers, you can't really complain about that. (We didn't have a stream from Umehara's event at Super Wave Yoshiwara.)

- Poster advertising the event.
- View from behind.
- This is the scoreboard after 42th match. Apparently Umehara lost only one. (O = win, X = lost)

- Tonpy (Viper) and Reiketsu (Claw) participated.

Interview after the event by 4gamer
- Impression: "I'm glad it ended well. This's my first Kumite event in metropolitan area so I was worried about participants but a lot of people come so I'm happy."
- "...the best part was I got to play with new players."
- Many players asked you to play Ryu: "Unexpectedly, yes. I want to use Ryu a but more but if it's tournament then I have to choose a strong character. If there's a lot of requests then I think I'll try to use it more if I can."
- Impression: "I think Kazunoko for sure. It was difficult.
- Nishoukyaku fights: "It's like that when we fight. It's about reading wakeup Nishou"
- He'd like to have an event in Hokkaido or Okinawa. He said he's never been in Kyushuu.
- Ver.2012: He said it's all good but he was worried that new players who use Yun/Yang will quit the game because of the changes.
- He will participate NSB, then Kuwait in October.
- He said he only went to events abroad last year, this year it's Japan's turn. Local game centers can call him if they want to have some event,
