However, in the second set, Setanagi switched to a quick attack strategy, including a double double in the second set, and took the set 0-5.
In the third and final set, Setanagi won a huge chain of games against Tomo-kun, and then Tomo-kun won a round with a fast attack strategy, and the two players battled back and forth until the full count was 4-4!
At a critical juncture, when both players had to win this round, it was Tomo-kun who took advantage of his opponent's weakness to land a two-chain double!
Tomo-kun was relieved to be released from the extreme tension.
Tomo-kun, Setanagi, Ricky, and live were awarded the right to participate in the "STAGE 3 Final Tournament" and the right to be seeded in the tournament.
Tomo-kun's comments on his victory
I am very happy to win the championship at Tokyo Joypolis with an audience, as I have not been able to achieve good results in the last two years.
Looking back on the competition, there were some bad matches in the semi-finals, and I think they affected the final match. In the final against Sesanagi, he used a lot of fast attacks and other special attacks, but I am glad that I managed to hold on and win.
