Over two years and three months has been broadcasting Sasuke Mania! All 108 times during the broadcast of the event was held at a number! So was born the playback scenes!
Attack of the ultimate survival of the SASUKE
The last was held 20 times, the "name of the Olympic men also lost" a total of 2,000 people so far, it has been challenged.
But the moment of joy goal is to be tasted, only two men. What is the probability of a complete domination just 0.1 percent.
Why men, continue to fight? It's Magic Castle at the top of a steel What's on?

Gonna miss this show.. Pray for Sasuke 22 and more Sasuke related specials. Until then.. It's been awesome!
Well my sweetie,
Voicing my thanks for your blog. It's weird that I can actually watch it but don't and instead I read your blog because it's better than seeing the show. Your captions are priceless. It's written like manga (and I don't read manga), visual, snappy and to the point. No doubt you'll use your wit and talents elsewhere.
Otsukaresama (Thank you for your hard work.)
Aahahahahaha seriously? You read this instead of watching? Awwwwww. Yeah I had a lot of fun with these. Glad you enjoyed it and appreciated the help with some of the translations! Oh I have to learn Japanese...
Arigato Gozaimasu :)
How do you say "It was a pleasure" or "my pleasure"?.. provided it doesn't sound obscene when I try to straight translate a phrase like that...
Ah it sucks the show is canceled. I could never get around to seeing it so I just enjoy your blogs with the clever commentary. Who knows, maybe they'll do a revamp of the show and bring it back bigger than ever.
I didn't know livestation dropped TBS. After I read it on your blog, I went into panic mode and opened up the program and I saw it streaming TBS just fine, so I went to the site to try to stream it directly from there and strangely it was also working. I don't know what's going on!!!
Sorry for the late late and very comment - I had to ask, what is this "flying teabag" thing? I've seen you mention it a couple times but I can't even figure out what it would mean! I'm very very curious!
Also, I'm really disappointed that this show is ending. A lot of Japanese variety shows seem to be being cancelled right now. Maybe the networks are in some sort of weird upheaval. Even though I couldn't watch it, I enjoyed reading your comments and seeing your caps. I'll just have to go reread your entries now!
@Laura: As far as I know, the "flying teabag" comment is a reference to an incident in which the boys were doing a mock jumping spider, and Kobayashi's crotch collided directly with Nagano's face (he was standing there to simulate the height they needed, I believe). One of the best moments in pre-Sasuke history (if I even have the reference correct)!!
@Arsenette: Bummer the show is cancelled, especially considering I just learned how to stream TBS *sigh*.
But thank you very much for all your work up until this point. I mean, those pictures of Bunpei? My goodness, he is SO FINE. I had a major crush on Kobayashi back in the day, so when I saw the picture of the two of them together I had this feeling of panic, like "OMG, I've been discovered! The husband is meeting the boyfriend! Tee hee!"
I know. I am very strange.
Tea bagging.. well.. I KNOW what it is.. but I had to look it up to make sure I wasn't completely off the wall... and I wasn't.. it's a sexual term that has evolved into a Video game reference. I'll cut and paste the videogame reference.. For lack of a better phrase.. uhm.. think what part of Shinji's body hit Nagano's face.. yeah..
Simulations of teabagging are often used in video games, specifically first person shooters such as Counter-Strike, the Battlefield series of games, Call of Duty. "Teabagging" is performed by repeatedly crouching down - a common movement in FPSs - while on top of an enemy corpse. The act, known as "Tea Fragging", is a form of victory dance to show ownership and to humiliate an enemy player. Certain player groups (often referred to as clans) find the act offensive and therefore forbid its use on game servers they operate. Conversely, many clans relish the activity and encourage its use.
Get it? (use the wiki and check Tea bagging... it's there alright LOL)
LOL Rufus we posted at the same time! That's just too funny.
Yeah. .it is sad it's gone.. secretly I am sorta happy.. I was starting to burn out!
Dang, I was logged in with a different account. D: Embarrassing! Here's the comment I meant to leave just now:
Ahhh! I was aware of teabagging as a thing but I didn't know that Nagano was involved and I was trying to imagine Kobayashi somehow ending up all folded over and hitting himself in the face with his crotch. It was hard to picture!
That's pretty hilarious that he slammed into Nagano - for us viewers, at least! XD
Ah okay so you did see the G4 behind the scenes parking lot adventure :) Okay phew... that was going to be some interesting explaining..
Btw.. Nagano was in Florida over the weekend and one of the board members showed him the pictures since he hasn't seen it!!! Obviously he remembers.. but the funny part was that he said "don't ask me how I'm doing.. ask Shinji since he was more hurt than I was.. I only injured my leg" LMAO!!!!!!
