Umebook talk on Nico 2 summary

- Umebook talk #1
- Umebook talk #2 announced

- An introduction video of Daigo Umehara was showed at the beginning. It has never-before-seen pictures when he was a child, and also some daily life footages.
- Umehara appeared with an editor from the book publisher.
- As a child, he got 1000-1500 yen allowance a time (which is considered large amount) from his grandmother. He spent most of it in game centers.
- When asked what is his best place to eat ramen, Umehara said "Jangara." He ate at least 2,000 meals there. Then the website went down seconds later (overloaded).
- There was a video interview of Mr. T whom Umehara has a lot of respect since his mahjong era. Mr. T was very good at mahjong.
- Nico Nico sold his books with autograph again. They said the books (around 200 copies) sold out in 5 minutes.
- The moment he signed the autograph drew some hype from the viewers as usual. It's like some kind of ritual.
- Around 100 mails were sent to the show asking him questions.
- The show had over 29,000 attendees including timeshift.
- 87.9% of the viewers voted "This show is extremely good."
