Rather than bitch and complain about Honda’s shortcomings I thought it might be better to find some vids to show us how he’s supposed to be played. I FINALLY found A MATCH on youtube that wasn’t between 2 scrubs through UltraDavid’s Dhalsim Video thread.
We need our own dedicated thread for this shit.
Honda is written (HO), ??, ??? etc. It seems like most japanese use Katakana but since Honda is a pretty common name (with that Kanji) the 2nd might be good to try.
Players I have found thus far and what I might know about them. A lot of match vids have Hiragana or Katakana names but some popular players use Kanji. I will do my best though I can BARELY speak Japanese.
Mike Ross- unless you’re retarded you know this guy is considered best Honda in America.
???AB7 - PinoAB7 he is known as a 3s Necro player. Also in 1 vid he is called “Densetsu no AB7”
???- Omitsu I don’t really know about this guy yet
??? - Kusumondo I have not found his vid yet but I heard that he plays SFIV honda too. LEGENDARY ST HONDA. (AKA sometimes as Gorilla Imo)
??? - Kakiyun appears to also play Slut so he may have moved on from Honda.
??? - Kashiimama
??? - Kamiro (or ru) I fuck these 2 characters up so somebody help me.
Imo the best Hondas on Youtube at least are probably Pino, Mike Ross and Omitsu. I couldn’t find anything else from those other guys. (In the case of Gorilla Imo I couldn’t find anything from IV but I trust that if he’s playing Honda he is rough stuff)
I got a lot (re: MOST) of this from this guy:

If anybody knows of any others please put them up. Also if I fucked up anything please let me know. (Just don’t be a dick about it, I’m trying to help.)
