What happened to him? Nobody really talks about him anymore, which is a shame because he’s one of my favorite players. I just started watching videos of Shinya, and I really like his style. And he seems really happy all the time, which is good.
He was at Jap Nats and Worlds this year. Placed 7th and 15th, respectively. I think the fact that it looks like he’s having so much fun makes him fun to watch =)
only one month ago:
also, he’s running an online yoyo store.
Yeah, I saw that and does he run YoyoRewind? And what I meant by “dropped off the radar” was nobody really talks about him.
I saw him yesterday
I saw photos of that meeting posted on facebook from YYF, from Shinya, and from Mickey! Some serious talent in that photo.
yup, but it might be co-owned or something, I’m not really sure.
It’s run by him, Kazuki Okada and a couple of other guys. But let’s try to follow forum rules here and not discuss competing yoyo sellers.
Ok. If anyone wants to give me his autograph, feel free
Don’t forget that Hironori Mii is what’s behind everything :3
Anyway, seems like Shinya is more focused on helping at the other store.
I wouldn’t say he’s out of the radar…too harsh.
