I’m just passing on the news, and trying to help a friend.
So in his recent upload (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs-dHDOOOYI ) , ShinAkuma said that due to some issues with his laptop and the company he bought it from not being willing to replace it, his youtube channels (0ShinAkuma0 and Ov3rheadGreg) will be shutting down indefinitely. Usually, I don’t speak out on stuff like this. But his channels have been very important in documenting tournaments, amazing FT10 sets, and has introduced us to strong players who we otherwise may not have ever known anything about. I speak particularly about his Ov3rHeadGreg channel, because without that channel I think its hard to believe we’d still have footage of japanese tournaments like the topanga cup at our finger tips easily.

If we had things like these channels and Youtube around in the nineties, the SF culture, the VS series culture, and the games that were played widely beyond them where would we be? Maybe we’d actually have some accessible footage of Tomo Ohira, or maybe we’d know of even better players that existed then (and probably still do now). Point is, ShinAkuma’s channels are important to our community as it stands now. Eventually, he will have a donate button available. If you can donate, please do so. We all benefit.
