Once the real sumou wrestlers started TORIKUMI, absolute aura released from their bodies…The trembling atmosphere attracted a large amount of meteorites from space. The electric shocks and shock waves jumped off every time they collided. It looks like the game called Street something…?!
Such a great event!! We would love to see this kind of event in Auckland too…
