Umehara on TOPANGA TV tonight

Daigo Umehara appeared as the special guest on tonight's TOPANGA TV to promote his Battle Tour 2013 charity events. See the recorded stream below (skip to 1:40:00 for Umehara).

- Although born in Aomori, Umehara has never visited Hokkaido (island where Sapporo is). (Aomori is near but on different island.)
- Fans then Mago asked him to play Ranked Match.
- It's very unusual for Umehara to talk casually and just have fun while playing. In fact, the last time we saw this is when he was on TOPANGA TV in June 2012.
- On his first opponent, Umehara asked Mago what character does this player use. Mago said Akuma. Then Umehara joked "Then I'm gonna counterpick with Yun."
- When the Akuma player blocked too much in the corner, Umehara said "I gave up" then jumped back to the opposite corner!
- Someone pointed out that Umehara was wearing Norman Tulloch brand sweater (made in Scotland) which is being sold for 14,000-16,000 yen.
