Tokido going for back-to-back EVO wins, but a new Challenger stands in his way.
The drama and excitement did not miss again this year at EVO. I couldn't imagine a more exciting ending. Well maybe if Cool Kid had been in the finals for America with such a wild crowd they would have gone nuts if he had beat Tokido. Shout outs to EVO, another great show for 2018!
An in-depth view as to why Tokido reigns as my favorite Street Fighter.
Tokido is a young but exceptionally accomplished player of numerous fighting games in Japan, but he is perahps best known for his adept use of Akuma in Super Street Fighter 4 as he is honored as the best Akuma player in the world. He is known to have even taught Austrailia's best, Toxy, a few extra techniques to really improve his game. As an Akuma player myself, I naturally have respect for Tokido as well as his game. His mix ups, mind games, spacing, and precise execution, have even granted him victories over Daigo himself.
But aside from being a grand player, Tokid also has a well placed personality. While Daigo is quiet and rarely speaks, Tokido is more alike to most of us, knowing he has skill but he doesn't rub it in, while at the same time picking moments to really rise in status in the community. We all remember one such moment in the SoCal Regionals tournament when Tokido finished off ClackeyD's Ibuki and set forth to become godlike.
In addition to having a great sense of humor as well as having a good sense of grandeur (I totally would have done the same xD) Tokido also shares a good sense of socialism with the community, a quality more commonly shared by most of us that links Tokido to us, giving us connection and familiarity to a great player. He gives input back to the community that helps players to up their game with greater confidence to play Akuma. In this 2 part interview, it shows Tokido answering questions as well as you get a good idea of who Tokido is, his personality, as well as how one would be able to get along with him. He's basically like one of the guys, but he just happens to be an extremely good player. It's also interesting to see him give his opinion on other high level players!
In conclusion, I see Tokido as a Grand Master, a very great player that gives back to his fellow players and apparently seems like a good person to be around. He is seems to be a great role model as well (no smoking guys haha) But as well, he has a great sense of humility and humbleness. He doesn't absorb attention but only accepts it, and that is what allows him to differ from players with conceited attitudes. Among his most humble and humerous moments, is an early match with the Japanese model female player Haruna Anno. Observe and enjoy :D
In the end, Tokido remains my favorite player as he continues to awe and inspire us all. To Tokido, Thank You for playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

Tokido and Daigo Yun play.
More AE video from Air and kim's youtube channel. WE finally get Daigo, people have been raving over seeing his Yun. It is really good, but not as ridiculous as many people thought. What do you guys think of the gameplay?
Air and Kims youtube channel from where the vids are from -http://www.youtube.com/user/SSF4AE
(Also, heres another youtube SSF4AE channel that doesn't get much recognition http://www.youtube.com/user/derrace#g/p)
First is Daigo (Yun) vs Jack (Sagat). At fist it seems Daigo has a tough time getting in, Sagats normals can space well vs Yun, but Daigo gets in some Ume-Upkicks and in the second round, pretty much sniffs outt he Tigger uppercut
Here is Daigos Yun vs Magos Fei. It is a good fight but Fei's BnB's and normals seem too much for Yun, priority wise and damage wise.
Daigo vs Galactis Indian (rose)
And here is Mr.Murderface, Tokido's Yun vs Naruo's Seth. Nothing too special, mainly Tokido showing he is a solid Yun player and lands neccesary combos. In his blog he wrote that he picked up Yun's offense well but he is bad at defense.

"The Iceman" is giving the people what they want
Tokido shortly after the release of AE started a blog about his battles, matchups and how he feels about players in general. In this blog he gives us some nice insight on how players are doing and what he does in matches. Also you do not need an account to comment and Tokido replies to many of the comments, like what he thinks about Daigo "too aggresive" and that his favorite tea is Oolong. Also he writes the blog mostly in English! Shortly after creating his blog he has also started a youtube account, recording some of his matches and other people's matches. Enjoy guys and leave a comment about what you think.
