Shanks, top 9 in Japan
Shanks participated this last weekend in the Red Bull Dragon Ball FighterZ Japan Saga in Tokyo, a competition in which he finished Top 9 after falling in the Losers final against the japanese Dogura. ‘Padre’ has now his sights set on Paris, where the World Tour finals will be played.
Shanks started this competition with confidence after his great role in EVO (Top 8) and Saga Madrid (Top 4). Supported by his mythical team (A18, Adult Gohan and SS Goku), he began his road this weekend in Pool 3, finishing it with a 8-1 balance.
However, Kazunoko beat Shanks in the final for 2-1. The next challenge was Dogura in Losers. Our ‘Padre’ was left alone with the android in front of two characters. The comeback was really close, but finally we had to settle for ninth place. But our eyes are now on Paris.
This stop of the Japan Saga ended with Wawa as champion and with a direct ticket to the world championships in France, just as Go1 and SonicFox got before. The other players who will accompany them, by points in the overall ranking, will be: Fenritti, Dekillsage, Kazunoko, Shanks, Maddo, ChrisG, Supernoon, Bnbbn, Apologyman, B, Matoi and Seo. The 16th place will be decided soon in the Last Time Qualifier.
