The BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasm finals was arguably the most epic at EVO 2014, mostly because it involved the biggest comeback. Garireo fought his way out of the Loser’s Bracket to defeat a determined Dogura for an amazing finish that ended in tears.
An excellent 3-2 bracket-resetting match 1 win by Garireo was followed by a second and final 3-2 win. The champion was down 2 sets to 0 in the final match but somehow managed to etch out 3 wins straight, unquestionably demonstrating that he was the better player that day.
