    The Japanese scene is pretty lit from what I’ve seen. I enjoy staying up late and watching the Master Hand streams. I hope that the scene can become bigger and more profitable for the players.

    I find it so odd that 64 and Smash 4 are as big as they are in Japan but melee isn’t. Also evo japan not having melee is honestly demoralizing. If they had melee in the lineup and there was a concerted effort by top players to attend and try and grow the scene I think big things could happen. But it’s moot because there is no melee, and the gaming laws are still the biggest obstacle. Unfortunate, hope the Japanese melee community finds success and growth in the future

    Though I helped a little with editing and translating, what is written here is all Watch’s opinion.

    Interesting how every region outside of the US deals with its own unique set of challenges. Living in South America, we have quite a few different ones ourselves. I hope to see the more Japanese melee players in NA tournaments, they have some sick players.

    >Gambling laws

    Why isn’t it possible to skirt the rules with non-cash prizes that can be exchanged for cash at a *totally unrelated location*, like pachinko parlors do?

    I’m sure the idea has come up before, so what am I missing?

    I like how you laid out your problems and solutions. We all want to help but there’s nothing we can really do, but if you do find people willing to take on certain projects we can get behind them.

    > With the birth of Japan’s first salary-based professional gamer team (DetonatioN, Focus Me) and the opening of a vocational school, Momochi and Chocoblanka’s Shinobism, for nurturing professional gamers, the amount of positive developments for Japanese esports has increased.

    I for one welcome this development.
