After his game, he got a really cool medal that says something very nice in Japanese.  Haven't the slightest clue but I'm sure it's adorable.

After his games, it was time for fun and sitting back to watch the rest of the show.

Oh what I would give to stay a few more years for another Undokai.  Another anything on this island.  I feel like I’m just gettin’ started!
