First issue of Japan's first e-sports magazine has Umehara article

The first issue of Japan's first e-sports magazine "World Game Magazine Japan" is being released today and its highlight content is an article of Daigo Umehara whom they describe as genius pro gamer.

This's well deserved since Umehara is the most famous player in Japan's e-sports scene.

Without fighting games, e-sports scene in Japan is small and weak. Japanese gamers have too many choices and most of them are not meant to be played competitively. It's hard to find a game with star that unites people like Street Fighter.

The cover girl is Aya Hirano, the voice of Haruhi Suzumiya from Haruhi Suzumiya anime. The first season of the anime was a smash hit in 2006.
