That has to be one of the best promotional posters ever. Still don't know who the opponent will be but I'll definitely be pulling for The Donger

I really hope Misaki joins this tourny.

Misaki has got to be, without the slightest doubt in my mind, the fighter that I hate the most. The way he was being so disrespectful to Akiyama when Akiyama was completely pounding him before that illegal soccer kick is just childish. Even after being so disrespected, Akiyama was still classy to the end.

I really hope Misaki joins this tournament and gets embarrassed by Akiyama.

Also, I really hope the Donger DongBars his way into the finals.

Akiyama and Dong in the finals!~~~ ^^ I wish..


I pick Akiyama to win the whole Grand Prix.

I like Akiyama in this GP. I see Kang vs Akiyama 2 happening in the finals.

I wouldn't mind a Tamura vs Kang match, actually. Kiyoshi's always been underrated. Kang's a really solid fighter, and I think those 2 could put on one fun fight. Of course, I think Kang wins it.

It's not going to happen, but Funaki winning this whole thing would rule.

I also pick Akiyama, as usual, BUT, as much of a prick Misaki is, I love his fighting style lately, its very exciting and his stand up has really improved, so it would be fun to have him in the tourny.

That is true, I always felt Tamura has been a bit underrated, his stand up pretty good actually, but his downfall is his ground game and age.

If Funaki was to win this, Bas would definitely have to come out of retirement.
