We have not been able to hold the event since 2019 (third event) due to the pandemic, but we held the fourth event in March 2023.

This competition was held jointly with Nippon Television, and many viewers became aware of the event due to announcements on TV. A total of 13,531

people participated in the online qualifiers, and the final with the 16 winners was streamed live on YouTube.

The high level final, which required not only typing speed, but also accuracy, was very exciting, with running commentary and explanation of the heated battle.

We would like to continue holding competitions to convey the fun of typing and help to spread typing as an e-sport.
