The reason for Ibushi winning the competition is as followed:
・ Because the body of every player is wonderful, it is difficult to put on the body alone, but Ibushi's body has a strong impression that it will not change at any time throughout the year. While many other players were squeezing towards Concluso, Ibushi felt that he was able to maintain this wonderful body forever.
・ It's crazy, but it doesn't go too far, and I have the impression that it fits within a beautiful range. I think it's a sculptural body, such as the balance of the whole body, the small face and the oblique muscles with beautiful lines.
・ I think that it is a muscle that is not focused on balanced and lean muscle weight, but focused only on fighting style and balance power in the air, and does not kill movement speed.
・ The balance of the whole body is artistic! I think the body is so beautiful that all the other players will say "amazing". Not to mention the trapezius, back and arms. The abdominal muscles and oblique muscles are like the characters of a game made with CG. I think it's a human masterpiece! !! !!
