    Question! There is one commentator that peppers his commentary with English every so often, is it Milano? I recall he did so a few times during Juice’ matches. His yelling of “EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING!” was great, it really added to the drama of the finish!

      Yeah, that’s Milano. As we watch more and more of the Japanese commentary, he has become a favorite of ours. On a side-note, he always looks pretty short too. – Juan
