Two days ago, on ChocoPro #135, the One of a Kind Tag League finals took place. The winning team of Block A, TropiKawaild, battled the winning team of Block B, Melt Brain Dancing. Following a competitive affair that saw the strengths of both duos at their finest, it was the colorful, powerful duo of Yuna Mizumori and SAKI that overcame the nefarious and, at times, unpredictable PSYCHO and CHANGO. With this victory, “Yunamon” and her “Kawaild” comrade made history as the first One of a Kind Tag League winners. In addition to a trophy that resembled a stack of gifts, they received an opportunity for the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship on ChocoPro #136.
This won’t be the first time that TropiKawaild and Best Bros battle, as we will get into detail on later. However, this may be the most important match for either team. Mizumori and SAKI will enter Ichigaya Chocolate Square with indescribable momentum, having overcome seven other teams to win Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling‘s first tag league. Meanwhile, Best Bros, the duo of Mei Suruga and Baliyan Akki, have held the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship since New Year’s Eve this past December. With two undeniable forces at play, something has to give. Here is what to know heading into ChocoPro #136.
Asia Dream Tag Team Championship: Best Bros (Mei Suruga and Baliyan Akki) (c) vs. TropiKawaild (Yuna Mizumori and SAKI) (One of a Kind Tag League Winners)
When the One of a Kind Tag League was announced, the inclusion of TropiKawaild was a no-brainer. Together, Yuna Mizumori and SAKI won the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship on two occasions, once in 2018 and then in 2019. However, with SAKI being the more experienced of the two, the “Kawaild” half of TropiKawaild previously won the purple belts in 2016; at this point, her tag team partner was current Tokyo Joshi Pro-Wrestling star MIZUKI. SAKI is also the current Actwres girl’Z Champion, having won the strap from Miyuki Takase this past April. SAKI stands atop AWG, and now that she is one-half of the One of a Kind Tag League winners, she may very well claim Gatoh Move as her own as well.
That is, however, if TropiKawaild can overcome the top tag team in ChocoPro. Best Bros is a team that needs no introduction to regular viewers. They previously won the titles, for the first time, on New Year’s Eve. This was a major accomplishment, as they overcame RESET, the veteran team of Kaori Yoneyama and Gatoh Move founder Emi Sakura. Since then, Best Bros proved themselves as a formidable duo, rarely losing in tag team encounters. Furthermore, they successfully defended the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship on six occasions, besting Melt Brain Dancing, Egg Tart, and other duos along the way. Despite this, their performance in the One of a Kind Tag League didn’t go quite as they expected.

Best Bros were announced for Block A alongside TropiKawaild, Wasshoi Aniki, and Dragon Ninja. In the days that followed the tag league’s announcement, Best Bros defeated Dragon Ninja. However, their remaining two matches ending in time limit draws placed them at 4 points, putting the likelihood of them winning the tag team in jeopardy. One of those draws was against TropiKawaild, who fared much better in Block A, winning their two remaining matches in the block. From there, they faced Melt Brain Dancing, the winning team of Block B, to eventually be crowned the first-ever One of a Kind Tag League victors.
Who will wrap up ChocoPro #136 with the Asia Dream Tag Team titles? Consider that TropiKawaild last held the titles in March of 2020; one can imagine just how hungry they are to win them once more. Against a team at the top of their game like Best Bros, however, such a task is easier said than done. If their Block A match is any indication, their upcoming championship encounter will be that much more competitive. Tune into the official Gatoh Move YouTube channel for what very well be a ChocoPro season eight best match contender.
ChocoPro #136 will air on July 19 at 10:00 AM JST (July 18 at 9:00 PM EST).
