    [Character] Re: Do you think Mouri is the worst?

    He seems like a solid player but since he can't shoot lasers from his eyes or smash walls he's kind of screwed in the world of NPOT.

    Tokugawa can join whatever nation he was at before he came back to Japan.

    Keep in mind Krauser was on the U17 camp and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have Japanese citzenship at all.

    It's one thing about overcoming impossible odds, but you can't make a comeback from 3 outs in the bottom of the 9th and still call it baseball.
