PNS|Garireo is known in the BlazBlue community not just for his excellent Litchi Faye-Ling play, but also for making an epic comeback when battling CY|Dogura in the Evolution 2014 Grand Finals. With a new victory, it seems that he’s proving his “schtick” as a comeback king. Garireo’s triumph at CEOtaku 2017 in BlazBlue: Central Fiction echoes his most famous moment.
Facing the r/Kappa-sponsored Dora_Bang — a fellow Japanese player — Garireo shows an interesting arc. At first, he lost cleanly to the speedy ninja in Winners Finals. Dora dominated with a 3-0 score, overwhelming the Litchi user with mix-up. However, Garireo fought his way from the losers bracket to Grand Finals. Lo and behold, Garireo barely resets the bracket with a clutch victory right around the 20-minute mark.
