I jumped at the opportunity to meet and fight the father of Ein players. Unfortunately I didn't get what I truly wanted, an Ein mirror with the guy, but the set itself was still pretty stimulating. He plays a very oddball defensive style and seldom finishes his strings before continuing to defend and.. bah you've seen him play for years you know how he fights.
I can tell he's still kind of getting a feel for Hitomi, he missed some things, threshold strings, etc etc but he's coming along. These matches might not be as fast paced as you like, potentially boring for some, but for others it might be refreshing to see two players actually putting some thought into the moves they perform and not just mashing buttons. I can only hope at some point I can get this guy to pick Ein. Anyway, enjoy the show folks.
