Takeshi went pretty clean, though he did use almost the exact same freestyle as last year. I only watched a few others, but his was definitely in the top 2 or 3 from what I saw.


#3

COuld just barely watch the livestream; could only see the first few and Iori having to switch out (ouch), and I think I saw ROyota Ogi do very well

And I was able to see Takeshi’s; And I believe he’s won it (IMO)

Thoughts?


#4

The stream last night through a different host was much better. I think that Takeshi won it, although he didn’t pull out any huge new tricks. My favorite finals routine was Toru Miyazaki and my favorite semifinals routine was Ayumu Harada.


#5

Takeshi won guys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTFcjFva0I0


#6

Iori had to switch twice I believe also, Ryota Ogi is a giant


#7

Hajime Miura had some really big tricks


#8

Oh i didnt see is there a vid for it?


#9

C3yoyodesign’s YouTube is uploading some vids, Hajime’s 4A is the bomb, he got fourth I think based on the pdf on the jn2015 website and my mediocre understanding of reading all the letters on the scorecards


#10

Hajime got 4th in both 3A and 4A


#11

My favorite players all didn’t do very well except takeshi.
Also, did takeshi use a shake?


#12

palpitation .

I’m so ignorant of Japanese yo-yoers. I know who Takeshi and Ryota are and that’s it.


#14

I have a feeling that Takeshi is hiding his new tricks until WYYC15…


(Owen) #15

For sure. He has a really good chance of winning.

It was his styled hair.


#18

He really deserves it


#19

at 0:49 in the video is he balancing it on the nipple in the center? That is really impressive
