Right, I have gone through all the photos from Hong Kong and selected a few to share with our readers out there.
The event hall
The queue for the sales booth, the first 20 must have been aiming for the autograph session tickets XD
Most of the players waiting outside for the tournament to begin
There was a great turnout of 64 players and more watching from the sidelines
A special autograph session for our staff of the day, Team HKWS
There was also time for us to play a few rounds with the local players. Mr. Takata became the hot favourite of the day when they found out he was the stronger of our group XD
The Finals between the top 2 players
Ms. Tokui reading the Award for our First place winner
The Top 3 players with our Bushiroad gang XD
A group photo with the staff for the day. Picture was taken at the restaurant where we had dinner that night
It was a great tournament and we enjoyed ourselves in Hong Kong. I hope to see the winner at the end of the year, and hopefully I will get to travel there again soon.
Stay tuned for the post for Taiwan WGP! ^_^b
Whew, it's been a long 2 weeks of overseas trips, but I am finally back in Tokyo! XD
There is still some time before I set off again for Singapore to attend AFA X this coming 13th and 14th of November 2010, so I should be able to post more stuff if I don't claim the days off which I have accumulated on these trips Xp
For now, let's take a look at the cards for today-
“...combat, is that all there is?”
Thought splitting, Shion シオン・エルトナム・アトラシア from 「MELTY BLOOD」

For our readers out there, Bushiroad will be having a Press Conference again this coming Thursday!(04/11/2010). There will be more news for our upcoming titles so stay tuned if you would like to know what's coming up next.
For our overseas viewers and those who can't make it to the event venue this time, there is a special live telecast on Nico Nico Douga as well! The link is here:http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv30758219
Whew, finally made it to Hong Kong safely. The typhoon mentioned before didn't really affect the flight much. Strangely enough, it went to other regions instead of the predicted path...
It was a pretty warm afternoon when we arrived:
3 of us just off the plane at Hong Kong Airport
And we had a nice chat with some of the guys from Team HKWS who will be helping out at the WGP selections in Hong Kong tomorrow:
Ms. Tokui with a souvenir card signed by Team HKWS!! XD
For our Hong Kong players, good luck tomorrow and we will see you there! ^_^b
Oh, before I leave for the World Grand Prix Final Selections in Hong Kong, let's take a look at the Preliminary Match held at American Sportswear Trading last weekend.
There were a total of 30 players that day and all the seats were fully occupied at the tournament area that day.
Here are some photos from that day:

Even the space outside the shop is utilized XD

Let's get the daily post out of the way early in the morning as I have to prepare for the trip to Hong Kong this weekend! Yes, it's time for their World Grand Prix Final Selections. The winner of this event will represent Hong Kong and be pitted against players from Japan as well as other countries!
I wonder if the participants are as psyched as I am... it's really exciting to be able to attend overseas selections!
Back to today's main event:
