Kuroda Interview by Shueisha's Weekly Playboy Magazine

Something interesting I found recently on a FB 3S group (3rd Strike Junkies) showing an FT10 between Kuroda (MAK) and VANAO (RY). Besides, there is an interview (in Japanese), it will be good if someone can translate it for us here, it seems that there is a lot to know about what made him so pasionate about 3S.

FT10 is here :

    Kuroda's Makoto is pretty interesting to see. He plays her in a reserved way which you don't often see from high level Mak's.

    I found his Makoto better than Tominaga's one (just to compare with the current best Makoto SA2). He keeps his own play style (very strong defense, excellent execution) while adding more aggressiveness with the special grab.

    Now this being said, I think the interview is more interesting :p

    Think of the fight as being stuck within a circle with your opponent. You can move the fight but you cannot leave the fight or else you forfeit honor. That is how it is possible for those fukiages.

    what I generally see the average player do in the situations where kuroda gets the psychic fukiage is that they leave the circle and choose to simply find a way to survive instead of continue with honor. What I mean by they leave the circle is that instead of facing the challenge and defeating it with something new , they challenge with what he anticipated and boom.

    ps. Something to do against the difficult to parry fukiages is flying hitbox ( light attacks ) or falling hitbox ( attack that has most negative offset and causes a drop in altitude ). I say this because most of the difficult to parry fukiages are the ones where you like try to parry her as she's winding up and where you try to parry at a particular marginal angle. So, anywhere but center. With the two techniques described above you will either be too much ball and hit makoto out of it, too small and it'll miss, or you'll fall back down too low for her to hit. I haven't tested this yet I'm just sharing some experience.

    Not enough baby blue and black Ryu's. Both awesome colors

    well,i use "first communion" ryu in super x (hp) and it's undeniably super stylish
    problem is,that outfit just doesn't look right in 3rd strike (lp mk hp)
    only magu is a fan and we all know that "magu is kinda wild"

    so you're left with dash / ce ryu (mp) , super x (lp) or diamond
    i don't like baby blue,sorry denjizz

    ken and chun got the best wardrobes . . .

    97 Has a rep for being one of the most broken but fun of the KOF titles. I wonder if he mained Terry.

    That's the 2P color from the WW SNES days, right? URDLYB(I always pressed A too. YBA) Mirror match now possible!

    Yeah, some old ones transferred to SF3 didn't look as good. Palette editing could fix some of that, maybe?

    & Roundhouse is the most sick. You don't want a clean white gi with blue streaks in your hair.
    Knowledge built up in that brown one like you hear for belts. Gets darker as you get better/learn more.

    but ultradavid said this matchup is 9-1 makoto.
    'it's kuroda' isn't an excuse.

    an acceptable excuse is 'this is third strike.'
    thanks for the links hismit :)

    Q vs Mak isn't his worst matchup. It's just an American urban legend.

    Nope.

    Alex gets him in the corner but he's not nearly as scary as Makoto.

    Might not be the worst matchup but I don't see how this isn't an uphill battle for Q. Great set anyways!!

    Yeah I can't tell if it's the matchup vs Makoto or that the regular players of Japan have caught up to Kuroda. I'd definitely like to see a new FT10 that most people generally agree is 5-5 before I come to any rash conclusions.
  • NAPNAP Joined: Posts: 1,812
    I was under the impression that he plays more SF4 than 3S these days anyway. Maybe it's a combo of being rusty and other players catching up.

    You can clearly see from the matches that the things Kuroda does are inhuman. The matchup is difficult and tominaga is no slouch. The way tominaga plays is very janken (rps) and played keep away.

    No ones caught up to him lol

    Wow, he played Samurai Shodown too, eh? I wonder if he played V SP which is the fixed version of the V. WTF is up with the Hanzo's player's name there?

    Kuroda doesn't play the nerve game. That was what made him my favorite player from the start. He doesn't throw you off your game, he's just really good at his.

    I have to disagree. The impression I always got that he is mostly always playing the nerve and mind games with his opponent. He'll sit most of the match in the corner holding down back. To me that's like saying "I'm just gonna sit in the corner and no matter what you pull, I'm gonna get you for it. You may as well walk away".

    re: Kuroda playing the nerve game. IIRC Deemo once complained that Kuroda's gameplay (in reference to his Akuma DVD) was basically him red parrying everything into full punish. In that sense Kuroda doesn't take risks, his opponents do (at least in 3S).
    Of course that one DVD might not be representative of his playstyle but whatever.
