After a Top 8 studded with team members from Comic Odyssey, Team Savage, Crew!!, Team NANA, and Team Blaze one winner has finally emerged. Team Overdose’s Anthony Alvarado has won Shonen Jump Championship Charlotte!
Picked as one of the top two members of the team by his teammates, Alvarado proved that today he was the luckiest, smartest, and best duelist in Charlotte. Beating out Team Blaze’s Jimmy Bueno in the quarterfinals, Comic Odyssey’s Eric Wu in the semis, and finally coming up against Jae Kim in the finals, Alvarado had to face some of the greatest duelists in North America to win his title.
Alvarado’s clash against Kim in particular was truly epic, ending on a third game in which the heart of the cards were truly in Alvarado’s favor. He knew exactly what to do with his draws, and despite Kim’s use of many of his signature tricks, it just wasn’t enough to stop the indomitable force that was his opponent.
Congratulations to Team Overdose and Anthony Alvarado, the newest Shonen Jump Champion!
