I'll update this post if I see anything. Also this weekend there may be national danisen action (i.e. Aniken and ARG fighting YuuVega and Keishin, etc.) Don't miss 40 minutes of Kurahashi vs. Muteki here and here.

Versus Cup #1

Terrific singles event at Versus on Sunday. TIO came to visit from Kyushu, Kusumondo from Kansai. Hakase, AFO, Nuki @ MC, Muteki and Shiki were all there slugging it out.

Check out the archive over here:

Qualifying round.
Played like casuals. The first fifteen people to get four wins in a row went on to the next round. Kusumondo got a bye.

Top sixteen.
Double elimination.

Also, Mattsun uploaded the poster for X-Mania 12. Bit strange.

SBO 2011 Team List

Fundraising 2011

If you've found this blog to be amusing and informative over the years, please consider throwing a few ducats towards your more-humble-than-usual blog editor. I know the timing isn't great since a lot of you just spent big bucks to go to Evo but I'm tagging along with the SBO guys and I could use the scratch.

SBO Teams

Here's a list of teams that have qualified so far. Only the European (EDIT: added) and last chance qualifiers remain. Use the Nicovideo Redirector if you don't have an account.

Strong yet-to-qualify players include Tencho Ryu, Nakamura Cammy, Pony Zangief, Yakitori O.Hawk and Nakamu Blanka who I believe got second a few times.

edit 8.19: Added a couple team names and a link to the July 24th video.
