Alex Hattori 2017 5A Finals (1st)

I didn’t know Alex did 5A. He plays very well.


Many players that started very young are overwhelmingly talented. Something about learning and picking things up faster when you’re a kid I guess. Free time probably a big factor too.

Takeshi, Alex, Hajime, Mickey, Shion, etc. They’re all considered some of the best if not the best of all time in their respective style and some even in multiple.

I think Alex has always been a little unlucky with 3a though. There always seems to be one person better than him. First it was Hank Freeman, then as soon as he starts to fade out, Hajime comes up. I hope he gets a dub one day.
