Technical Definition-Translated literally, Japanese for "reading." The intangible aspect of a player that allows them to know what their opponent will do next. Some call it being psychic, others call it being a wizard although either of these are yet to be scientifically proven.

"There is one player who I would even say has a supernatural ability to spy on the minds of others, knowing which moves they will next make—if it weren’t such an absurd thing to say.
But believe me, those who have witnessed Japan’s fighting game player Daigo Umehara do speak of these things in hushed tones, fancying that they might be true."
