Evo 2004 comeback in Acchi Kocchi anime

Now Daigo Umehara's book is a bestseller, it probably takes a while until we see the inevitable Daigo Umehara: The Animation or Live-action. But at least we have something to watch between the wait.

The first episode of a new anime Acchi Kocchi from last night has a parody of Umehara's dramatic comeback in Evolution 2004.

The scene you see here is a match in an arcade between the protagonist (Tsumiki Miniwa) and her friend (Sakaki Inui). Tsumiki was using Kane, and Sakaki was using Xia-Li.

The comeback is widely accepted as the best video game moment of all time representing both skills and enthusiasm. In 2011, it was recreated as the hardest trial in Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition.
