Kakerugo 2016 Trip Report

I am going to dump every bit of the Kakerugo 2016 report here. I warn you it’s very long. You have material for several days, specially if you want to go through the videos so digest it the best you can and hope you enjoy it.

First of all, last year I posted a report of the X-Mania 2015 trip along with 46 videos of games from the Japanese arcades. I know I promised there were going to be more parts coming written by the rest of the people that came to the trip with me. All I can say is that @eltroubleSRK promised me he will do it sooner or later. ST is a timeless game so it’s better late than never 🙂

I will also apologize in advance for all the vertical videos in this post. I find it the most confortable way for me to film both the screen and the players hands at the same time but I am aware it’s not the right way to do it specially if you are watching it on the phone.

Part 1: Kakerugo 2016, if you have to chose one tournament go to this one

These days there are two major tournaments per year in Japan. X-Mania (3vs3 team tournament in August) and Kakerugo (5vs5 team tournament in May). Kakerugo was known in the past as Gian Recital. Exclusive news: X-Mania will change its name and location this year too.
