SHINYA HASHIMOTO VS SATORU SAYAMAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7QXDdHai-cThis is probably the most important video of my life. Like I think there's a chance I encountered it somewhere before and then forgot about it but finding it right now, at this stage of my life, holds a meaning that is hard to put into words. It may not even be worked but who care...
