Top 40 Japanese Melee players before Brawl (2001-2008) | "Warriors" 31st -40th

Eh Yo, CaptainJack! Hey everyone, this is CaptainJack (@CaptainJackSSB4) here! 

Starting from today, I'm happy to introduce "Top 40 Japanese Melee players before Brawl (2001-2008)". I classified 40 players in 5 tiers such as  "1st-5th (Gods)", "6th-13th (Demigods)", "14th-20th (Kings)", "21st-30th (Dukes)" and "31st-40th (Warriors)" respectively.

As everywhere in the world, numerous players appeared and disappeared in the Japense Smash community. Some are still internationally well-known nowdays, but there are also some who are not known even by old school Japanese players anymore. Therefore, I had an idea to note all top 40 old Japanese players before Brawl came out, in order to record the Japanese community's history.

I'm going to talk about them from 31st-40th, but please just know that aMSa, Rudolph, Gucchi, Flash, Shippu, Tapioka, Nanashi, MARS, K.F., Sobameshi, watch, Da-yoshi, Sanne etc are new faces so not included in this list.

Ok, so let's go!

Today, I'd like to explain what happened to me regarding sponsorship with CC ESports, to alert those who would be able to find sponsorship in the future. I'm going to talk about what I felt, as a Japanese. Because, this kind of trash scam would never happen and couldn't even be imagined to happen in Japan.

Before starting, I appreciate your huge concern and your support about this issue on Twitter and Reddit etc. So let's get into the subject!
