Evo Japan was a huge success, and Core-A Gaming (being based out of Korea) was able to make the trip, and Gerald Lee recorded his own impression of the event.

Speaking to people such as James Chen, Alex Myers, and Kayane, he describes the crowds, the hype of unknown players showing themselves to be killers, and the excitement to play new and anticipated titles. He also spoke of the significance of the event, with Knee and Infiltration both talking of the importance of winning the event, with Infiltration saying he would rather earn the prestige of winning Evo over the money attached to winning Capcom Cup.
