For Mitsumasa Hoshino, this will be a fresh new start since winning consecutive SUPER DARTS in 2008 - 2009.
“Honestly, it doesnt feel like this is a comeback. I’m not really focused on what I have accomplished in the past. Rather, I’d like to look at this as a fresh new start as a challenger representing Japan.
Once again, the doors have opened to fulfill his dreams.
SUPER DARTS 2011 granted Hoshino another appearance. This time however, he beared the responsibility of being a professional player. However, this did not change his approach to the game.
“As far as the way I thought and what I was aiming for, there were not any really big changes. If I had to say anything, I was more aware of the people who support me. More than ever, being aware of this responsibility, is a plus in my mind.”
Moreover, as SUPER DARTS 2017 approaches, Hoshino is steadily arranging his preparations.
“To sum up, I have become more open minded. Not only during matches, having the confidence in myself during my everyday life to me is the best preparation.”
With a strong will as his weapon, he is aiming for the top of the world.
Hoshino’s appeal is that he puts his soul into every throw. It’s a very exciting play style. Hoshino speaks about his will
“To all the players of the world, I think Japanese players are proud of their will power. If there is anything I would like to accomplish, it’s that we feel like there is no country we can lose to.”
The support of his fans are the reason why he is able to do his best.
“I am very grateful to all the fans who have given me the chance to compete on the grand stage of SUPER DARTS. To everyone who voted for me, even if just once, I feel everyone’s support. I will devote myself to producing the best result.
In 2016, he participated in all stages of THE WORLD, going through fierce battles with players from all over the the world. With experience as his weapon, as he approaches an unprecented 3rd conquest, the Flame Emperor’s battle begins.
