Umehara in LG Cup SF4HD Global Championship 2012 Japan's qualifier

On Saturday, Daigo Umehara appeared as a guest in talk session in LG Cup Street Fighter IV HD Global Championship 2012 Japan's qualifier. He was unusual talkative because he's between two friends who are one of the most talkative fighting game players - Kokujin and Nuki.

Nuki is Umehara's old friend and it seems like they didn't meet in a long while.

- Talking about olden days, Umehara joked that he thought Nuki's era is over when Nuki finished just 3rd place in a tournament. Because Nuki was so strong and always finished 1st place.
- They tried to find the right character for Nuki to play in SF4 Ver.2012.
- Nuki was interested in Sakura. (Nuki likes female characters.) Kazunoko made him interested a bit in Seth. Kokujin cheered on Seth, too.
- Umehara said Sakura gives Ryu more trouble than Seth.
- Umehara made fun of the fact that Nuki likes to talk about the olden days.
- Umehara mentioned that Dan is strong, mainly from shoryuken invincibility.
- Kokujin: Who's easy to play but strong? Ume: Adon.
- Umehara chose Ryu over Akuma because Akuma doesn't give him big advantage over Ryu.
- Umehara said Ryu's HP shoryuken is fun.
- Nuki is a renowned Umehara fanboy and he won't hesitate to say something awkward like "When I played SF4 slot machine, Umehara's face popped out." Viewers joked about platonic love/unfulfilled love as usual.
- Talking about the legendary parry at Evo: Ume said Raou liked to Super Art him, so it's like he practiced with Raou. Kokujin actually was there, too. He said it was so loud they couldn't hear anything else after the parry.
- Kokujin asked about how famous: Ume said sometimes he got a special treat from restaurants.
- In Zero 3 era, Nuki said there were 20,000 participants in national tournament.
- Umehara surprisingly knows a lot about smartphone version of SF4.
- Umehara playing the first Street Fighter, couldn't do shoryuken. KSK reported. [Pic]
