There is a big boom for Fukuchi New 7th Dan in the small world of Othello.

Similar to Shogi’s Souta Fujii 7th Dan, a single prodigy can create a big movement for a community.

I don’t know when, but I’m sure the same thing will happen with Mahjong.

Even though we have the same “Fukuchi” last name, he is not my grandson unfortunately ( ゚д゚)ウム
