Ageo Joe wins UMvC3 at Final Round XV

Ageo Joe became the second Japanese player to win a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 major in the U.S. after he won the UMvC3 tournament at Final Round XV (March 2-4, Atlanta, GA).

Moreover, he did not just win it. He won it with styles. He defeated several well-known American UMvC3 players with unconventional "log" trick and there're funny showmanships from him between the matches.

His opponents were  Filipino Champ, Flocker, Combofiend, Mihe, Yipes (winners final), and PR Rog (grand final).

Although his alias was Ageo Joe at Final Round XV and he changed it each game, he's known more for some people under alias Kusoru. The "soru" is from Guilty Gear's Sol.

Frieda and (Tekken player) Ao were also with him at the tournament.

In June 2011, Tokido defeated Chris G and Justin Wong twice at CEO to become the first Japanese player to win a MvC3 major in the U.S.

There's no MvC3 tournament in Japan except KUBODSGARDEN's one in Osaka and Final Round's Japan qualifier. Players like Fuudo and Momochi do have UMvC3 but no one knows how much time they've spent to the game.
