Yukikaze, Ikebukuro Sarah, Bunbunmaru, and Kyasao as Tetsujins. The latter 3 had a roundtable discussion with Den Faminico Gamer (in Japanese) about a week after the release of Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (Virtua Fighter esports in Japan).
In this episode of Harada's Bar, Harada continues his interview with VF5US/VFes producer Seiji Aoki where they talk about SEGA's marketing, how VF fans had given up hope like "people who have grown afraid of love", Aoki-san's commitment to developing the community within eSports, admission that the game wasn't 100% ready upon release and, oh, you know, a little thing like a Team Battle feature in an upcoming update! Also, did he just drop a cheeky hint at VF6 with the takoyaki!?
