Umehara on TOPANGA TV tonight

Daigo Umehara came to talk about various things on TOPANGA TV tonight.
  • He talked about Evo. He didn't think he would lose to John Choi but acknowledges that Choi was strong. (USF4) He thinks the match was tougher than F.Champ match. As for the results, he doesn't think about it much.
  • He said O Sagat are rare in Japan. The strength is near the level of Akuma. (SF2X) But he doesn't think about the result much since he didn't practice.
  • He talked about Hong Kong trip.
  • (Hong Kong) He didn't have the details of what he really had to do. It seems like Zhi asked him if he wanted to enter Hong Kong eSports Tournament.
  • (Hong Kong) He won a PS4 for winning all the challengers at PlayStation stage on the next day.
  • (Hong Kong) Sony asked him not to lose because Sony had to give PS4 away.
  • (Hong Kong) He joked about using overhead more because it's harder to block due to PS3 lag.
  • (Hong Kong) Due to the rule, he couldn't do Ultra finish.
  • (Hong Kong) He also had a match with a famous Youtuber. There're so many people around the stage.
  • (Hong Kong) He talked about food and how he couldn't eat the meat he doesn't normally eat like pigeon and frog. He said frogs and pigeons are (man's) friends.
  • (Hong Kong) He said fishes are definitely food ("They're food the moment I see them"). Because they came from ocean and have no legs. (which made everyone laugh)
  • He talked about his manga on Weekly Georgia.
  • He talked about the old generation when there weren't many tournaments and where serious players did everything to win it, even tricking other players. He brought Bishamon story as example. (They agreed they like a clean fight, but later abused the hell of a move)
  • There'll be a Umehara vs. Tokido talk event soon.

There were 5,461 viewers watching the show.

(Skip to 1:33:00 for Umehara)
