  • We have been missing for more than a year the streams of an arcade called Magical Yu (or something like that) located in Kobe (Kansai). However, most of their streams are just from the free play sessions. About a dozen of them are from actual tournaments or special events. You can look them up in this playlist (in reverse chronological order) either by translating the titles or checking which streams have commentators. Some of them have top players from Osaka as guests like Kusumondo and Teppei. Kenta-kobe is a frequent player in the arcade.



  • Singapore weekly tournament. This week with a special kumite of Emperor. Annotations in video description. Video
