  1. Welcome Back!!! I'm still hitting your homepage everyday while you're gone.

    We need more ST love <3

  2. Teams two looks nasty! -Fatboy

  3. Those last 3 teams listed gave me a boner

  4. Nohoho i just emailed you

  5. Damn. Hakase, Noguchi, Tamashima, Shogatsu and Pony seems like an all-star team. And there's, among others, Muteki, Nuki, Shiki, Keishin and Sasori (Danisen ranks, Sasori = Scorpio, Marbling System = Sashishi and Caising = Keishin). Is any fierce team coming from Kansai? Brothers + D + Tsuji + Kusumondo? :)

    Good to hear from you again, NH2!!!

  6. You updated post. Make that the last 5 teams. Geezus, that Hakase team is broken.

  7. as is the Muteki team. I also wouldn't count any team with YuuVega, Kurahashi, and AFO Blanka as out, either.

  8. oldschool@437 I'm sure Kansai will be there - the brothers with Murasaki, Gunze, Seki etc. would be fearsome

    Silks@1251 Sorry about that post-comment edit. But yeah Tamashima and his friends from More also bonerific.

    Couple things
    1. A 2ch poster said that Tsuji, ARG and MAO are teaming up.

    2. Futachan might not enter because of internet drama. Hope he does would like to see Futa, Ito, Star, Gotoh run a good Chubu team.

  9. I read somewhere on 2ch that Futachan was posting/flaming Gian (?) on his blog. Got any scoop on this 'drama'?

  10. Muteki (Guile), Nuki (Chun-Li), Shiki (Boxer), Keishin (Chun-Li), Sasori (Ryu)

    OMG Best Team Ever!!! 4 of my favorite ST players together.

  11. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. Internet drama? What going on? Futachan has been really solid, recently. A man who sweeps ARG + MAO (+ Opemai) twice, like he did at Thunder Beast Cup, would mean good competition even if he entered alone.

    Tsuji + ARG... + MAO??? Holy shit! Now that's gonna be a test for the Dhalsims and, I guess, pretty much any team out there.

    Hey, NH2: do you mind if I translate the post into Portuguese, and post it in a Brazilian fighting game forum? I would post a link to the original post, of course, with a recommendation that people access it at least once, for the due number of accesses to your blog.


  13. Look at this team:
    Muteki (Guile), Nuki (Chun-Li), Shiki (Boxer), Keishin (Chun-Li), Sasori (Ryu)

    Now check out the latest Danisen rankings:

    Talk about cream of the crop!

  14. Gian posted some sign-ups on the main site. I added a few above.

    Futa and Gian were bickering on mixi I don't know the details.

    Hey, NH2: do you mind if I translate the post into Portuguese, and post it in a Brazilian fighting game forum?

    Sure go for it.

  15. I reposted this on NeoEmpire, glad to see some ST content again Nohoho :D

  16. Tsuji (Boxer), MAO (Claw), Opemai (Claw), Saito (Claw), Murasaki (Dictator)

    WTF!? Cheapest team.

  17. Yuzuru (DeeJay), Ito (DeeJay), Seki (DeeJay), Itokazu (DeeJay), ???

    Holy crap, Dee Jay Dream Team! I wonder who their last member will be. Buzan? OhJ? Kuni?

    I like how they all have their own color, too.

  18. Cheapest team.

    Whoops that should say Saito Gief.

  19. Dont wanna post spoilers for those who still want to watch, but the deejays were off the hook! Insane play!

  20. BTW the last emmber in the deejay team is ken (boxer)
