Also He is a team mate with Koshin Asakura aka Asapin. U-next pirates are uploading Oshiete Pirates (Teach me Pirates) on Youtube, and each players are explaining their decisions behind the games. During the video, often Go and Asapin are arguing but it is fun to watch both digital mind players discussions.
