Tencho (Ryu), HAS (Fei-Long), Roku (E.Honda)
Shin (O.Hawk), Hiroyan (T.Hawk), Keishin (Chun-Li)
Here's a quick east-to-west look at some other Super Turbo tourney news:
For last week's Versus team battle each player got two different characters. Starts off clunky, but there are some good matches in the second half.
Video from the July 24th Ooyama Newton 2on2 is available here and here. Kawamata Ryu, Keishin Chun, K O.Hawk, Sashishi Ryu.
No video from the most recent danisen day at Versus, but the rankings were updated. Kikai Guile 10th dan, Akabla Blanka 9th dan, Hiroyan Hawk 8th dan.
It looks like there won't be a Star Cup tourney this year. They may try to do it next March instead. K Maru wrote that there may be a smaller Chubu event on the usual date (2nd weekend in October.)
Danisen events are starting up at Kasugai Five-oh this Sunday. Aka Zangief kindly uploaded this poster made by Akashachi Kancho. Live broadcast August 1st at 3pm (Japan) here.
Ko-hatsu is going to start running ST ranking battles on August 22nd. Alternating regular singles and solo 3on. Also they may get in on the danisen action. Presumably all of the rankings will go up on the main site. It'll be nice to see Super Turbo events go nationwide like Third Strike.
Also at Ko-hatsu: MAO (Claw) and Mori (Boxer) won a 2on2 this past Saturday. They took out AniOto in the semifinals.
