This video reminded me of something... i know Yuuji took part in 21 but he didn't make an impression. He was an unknown to most & only the "hard-core" sasuke fans know who he is. The people who do not follow it so much ( eg. me ) had never heard of UNCLI or Bug-In-Miki etc. won't even remember his name.
Suddenly in 1 year ( sasuke 22 & 23 & 24 all happened in 2009 technically ), from being an unknown ( to most anyway ) he became the 3rd ever sasuke champion. Things do change overnight! I know he has been training for years but i am talking about his results & fame. It is pretty amazing what can happen in 1 year...just rambling, sorry.
