To Live is to Game manga talk on Nico summary

- New Umehara manga announced, to be shown on Nico
- Title and cover revealed
- Official site and PV revealed

- The interviewer was Niconico's "Management No.3" (show producer) who was a fighting gamer and is around Umehara's age so there's a lot of in depth discussion about Street Fighter II.
- This manga project started one year ago.
- Umehara practiced how to punish Guile's crMK with Ryu's sweep using (Street Fighter II) Turbo 10 mode for 5 hours. There was no training mode dummy that time so he asked his friend to do it (Super Famicom).
- They looked at old issues of arcade gaming magazine Gamest (the magazine is long gone and the staff went to do Arcadia). Umehara pointed out that Guile vs. Zangief is 9:1 in SF2 Dash. (Ryu vs. Guile is 4:6.)
- Umehara said there's a lot of things to tell and the manga could go 30 volumes (but there's still no plan).
- There's "last boss" in the manga (someone that was above him).
- During the show when they revealed the official site of the manga, the site went down because it couldn't handle the traffic.
- More than 37,693 attendees, 28,547 comments
- 89.7% of the viewers rated this show "Extremely good."

Umehara said that he didn't actually say some of the well-known lines in the page below. (Beat Note: There were people who like to put words in his mouth and others believe it's a fact.)

Below is the famous "Umehara Mochi" (Umehara Grip, half wine glass, half palm on top). Every fighting gamers in Japan know it and many use it.
