Jonathan Underwood? I'm so not surprised -- I've been classmates AND in at least two clubs with him.

Somehow, it's a bit frightening to see a former roommate in that contestants list....

Hmm, I have Ardith Carlton beat on Most expensive item. I actually spent a hundred thousand yen on the Hokuto no Ken Super Premium Box. Very Happy

Interesting contest, though. I somehow did believe that the King of the Foreign Otaku wouldn't be American, though.

We need to step it up, people. Gotta represent. Very Happy

LOL I thought I was pretty hardcore but compared to these guys I'm like less than 1/100 of their dedication.

At least I beat all of them when they were guessing that Tobe! Gundam! song.

Jonathan's "PUGYA!!!" really had me laughing there.

Didn't TV Champion do a Japanese Ota-King a while ago?
They should make another episode: Japan vs. The World. Get that HK guy (Chan) vs. the Japanese champion (I forgot his name). That'd be interesting.

Sept 15, 2005. The Japanese champion Yukihiro Terao, as well as #3 Yuushin "U-sin" Ishizaki, appeared in the Champion Stage to deliver question #2. The moment U-sin on the stage you should be able to know the answer of that question. Mr. Green

Oh ok. I only watched the first half so far. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

Speaking of U-sin, I miss him. I wonder if he's doing anymore more shows, lol.
