Okay! First up this week! Crap.. no name from Week 3 - oy.. Ube missed his name again this week!
Oh crap.. No name takes a header... Log strikes again!
So this week promises the end of Sasuke Qualifying! We got 12.. or is it 14 left? Oh heck I don't care.. bring them on! We start off with the prerequisite replays of who made it.. who hasn't, etc. For a recap.. there are 8 slots to Sasuke 21 this year! Times are key so whoever are the fastest 8 on the final (second) stage are through to Sasuke 21.
Whoops running behind :p yeah yeah the first guy drank of Midoriyama's septic sludge.. on to the next guy.. oh boy.. I can hear G4's Forums exploding.. WE GOT A FREERUNNER! Okay.. they show this kid Satou Jun from Week 1... UH OH. WARN THE G4 FORUMS. HE'S FREE RUNNING! Or is it Parkour.. Free-running.. oh I don't care.. LOL They show the clip of Levi (hits) Meeuwenberg (sorry Ube I had to borrow that :p ) from 20. Wait.. or do we call him SPECIAL GUEST LEVI NEUEMBERG?? Oy.. and you wonder why I hate G4.. they can't even spell their own champion's names... I digress... and when did he become a special guest? Dudes.. he's your friggin' champion for ANC2.. Morons...
Satou Jun running with his Freerunning Posse...
Anywho.. Satou Jun has his own fluff piece we didn't see before. He's inspired by Levi or something.. they show a bunch of his stuff... his friends and a video of Levi and a couple clips of Levi in Sasuke 20.

Satou Jun's posse totally representin'!!!!
Satou Jun's ahead of schedule...
Okay, they are doing something different this week.. Note the top right of the screen at the timer... they have numbers in red. This connotates reaching the wall by 23 seconds and change. So basically you can tell if they are running slower or faster than the top time.
Satou Jun using his legs on the Sky Walk... er.. Power Hanger...
Satou Jun makes it into 2nd place! Nice time! 48'72
Satou Jun: "WHO'S your Daddy!"
MUSICAL CHAIRS! Awww Azuma Masahiko is now eliminated - everyone else.. pick up your card.. move to your left.. Except you Asa.. you are still in first.
Already 3 seconds behind the spit time at the bottom of the wall
Doh.. header off the logs.. ouch face plant into the padding..
Missed the next guy too.. he went to jump on the ropes.. and totally whiffed..
Next is the guy that qualified 2nd behind Asa Kazuma back in Week 1. I didn't know his name then - Ube tells me his name is Matachi Ryo
Matachi Ryo's room.. INCOMING FLUFF PIECE! Ooooooh I want his wall.. check out his photos! It's all glossy and stuff :D /passes popcorn
Matachi Ryo's room.. More pictures
Matachi Ryo's room.. Sqqqqueeak! I see Nagano dead center! Oh.. I wonder how he got in Sasuke to do this? Wait.. was this another event? Nagano has a T'shirt.. not his black wifebeater™ shirt.. oh and Bunpei's there.. wait.. THIS WAS BUG IN MIKI!! (Checking out the dude in the left.. his hospital blue/green shirt.. yep that's BUG IN MIKI alright)
Matachi Ryo's room.. More pictures from BUG IN MIKI
Matachi Ryo's room.. Looks like a bar hopping pic.. I don't think anyone is sober in this picture.. :p
Matachi Ryo's room.. Dude has a cliffhanger in a closet.. no wait.. that's his room.. God these rooms in Japan are small.. Hope he doesn't wake up in a panic.. having steel wedged in your forehead sucks..
Matachi Ryo's flying! Check it out he's a full second ahead at this point!
Matachi Ryo's BLOWS into 1st place! Wow 48"28! Good Lord!
Matachi Ryo: "What's my time.. I wasn't paying attention.. where is it.. "
Matachi Ryo's time .. all dramatic (LMAO TBS).. it's all like world record time with the official time taker.. thingamajig..
Takami is gutted.. he's out..
Asa Kazuma is on pins and needles.. he can't believe how fast Ryo went! He's visibly nervous.. does he think the next group of guys will surpass him sending him home? I think he thinks it's yes..
Matachi Ryo's is officially our first Qualifier to Sasuke 21! Why is that? Because of the last few competitors.. mathematically he cannot be surpassed even if all the rest of the field beat his time!
Top 3 group hug! Matachi Ryo, Kazuma Asa and Satou Jun
Kawaguchi Tomohiro is looking ready and willing to pwn the course.. wow he's serious..
Kawaguchi Tomohiro is on FIRE.. check out his split time.. he's already on the logs and he's almost 2 full seconds ahead!They keep going back to Asa Kazuma who seems to be having kittens while he waits for these fast guys to get through the course.. he's NERVOUS.. and right now.. he can't believe his eyes..
HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!! Kawaguchi Tomohiro annihilated the course! Dude.. that was ridiculous! 46"64 WTF!?!?!??!Asa Kazuma: "Wait.. what did I do? 48??? Did he just pwn me by 2 full seconds?"
Kawaguchi Tomohiro's friends (I think these are the Sasuke Park All-Stars) are beside themselves with happiness!Holy crap that was so wrong.. Wow.... (Ryo and Asa are dumbfounded by what they just saw)
Kawaguchi Tomohiro is our second Qualifier to Sasuke 21!Kanou Takaaki got the furthest out of the Sasuke Park All-Stars in Sasuke 20.. but he timed out on the final rope wall. Nomura Hiroki failed at the Jumping Spider in Sasuke 20 Kanou Takaaki is up first! Kanou Takaaki is running WAY behind the leaders at this point Kanou Takaaki finishes.. with a 51"35.. ouch.. he's in 8th! Asa Kazuma is now holding back tears! He's officially qualified! Craftsboy: Wait.. what did I.. crap.. that means I'm out.. Kazuma Asa is now our third official Qualifier to Sasuke 21! Kanou Takaaki can't believe his luck.. 8th.. He's going to need a friggin' miracle! So this is where we stand now... yep.. you guessed it.. THEY ARE GOING TO MILK IT TO NEXT WEEK!! Bastards.. we have too many to go and almost no time left on the show... Nomura Hiroki is next.. wow he's almost 4 seconds behind and he's not at the top of the hill yet! Nomura Hiroki is devastated.. he's just too slow.. doesn't even make it to the top 8! Satou Jun just found out.. he's in!
Satou Jun is our fourth official Qualifier to Sasuke 21!
Next week! It's Mr. (rampaging maniac) SASUKE (Spray) Katsumi Yamada running to keep up with his Assassin! (Mr. Miyagi).. ugh.. I expect a fluff piece to take up the entire show...
Anywho.. see you all next week! Almost done! Then it's all previews of Sasuke 21!!! Whoot! Next week they tape Sasuke 21.. the following is another Sasuke Maniac then the following Wednesday is the actual airing! Yay! Almost.. there...
