Sasuke 23 - Spoilerific Review - Part 15




Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 23.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D Please sign the Sasuke DVD Petition! I'd love for EVERYONE to be able to have their own copy of Sasuke to watch at their leisure. For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE NAVI FALL 2009 (1 hour review of Sasuke 23 with fluff pieces of all the major players in the upcoming Sasuke!) Oh.. and as Ube says: If you are from the G4 Forums, DON'T POST THIS THERE. They expect everyone to stick their head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist..


(Massive thanks to Ube for his help on the names in English and Japanese of all the competitors!!)

Levi Meeuwenberg リーヴァイ・ミューエンバーグ - As Ube said "White Sasuke Jesus".. though inexplicably the stupid announcer is calling Mr. America.. Obviously he's unaware that that title belongs to body builders.. unless he was meaning it as a joke... In which case I see the irony :p

Arm Rings no problem

Neither is the Lamp Grasper

Or the Devil Steps

ANW representin'

Now comes the Shin Cliffhanger the obstacle that pwned him before

He's been practicing though so let's see

Geh that water looks nasty...

wtf.. wait what happened that went quick..

Levi Meeuwenberg リーヴァイ・ミューエンバーグ - Death by Shin Cliffhanger again.

Trying to see what went wrong...

Too far over to the edge?

Had to have been a lapse of concentration. Maybe mentally preparing for what was ahead of him.

Spinning and everything. Don't think I've seen that before..

Speaking of spinning..

Brian's reaction that

That was the last of the Americans. No offense to the guys but seriously.. 10 guys was way too many IMO..

All-Star Reaction

Everyone seemed in shock

Nagano caught Brianitis as he rotates as well. Takeda likes seeing him in the water.. sick bastard..

Kanno's in shock.. that means he's got to get ready early too

Time to be one with the can..

Levi in a bit of a shock

All-Stars trying to make sense of it all

Nagano: Dude you better not do that..

Trying to see from a better angle

I don't see it.. then again they usually are on the obstacle a bit higher.. not the corner like that

Definitely had to have been a moment of indecision

Or just a break in concentration thinking ahead of himself

Either way.. he has to build the first part of the obstacle in his garage rather than just the last 2 parts. (Which he did recently)

"It's a bummer but.. as you can see from everyone else I mean.. just one little thing.. one little uh.. thing you think one way.. and it goes another way"

This is funny.. she goes Arigato Gozaimasu and he hears and thinks he can say it just as fast and it comes out as gibberish at the end.. kinda like "Klaatu barada nikto"...

... and just to piss me off..

..... obviously he missed the memo about not jumping back in the water unless you earned it...

.. nope.. missed the memo..

ANW kids are just as clueless about appropriateness...

.. Still failing to see what is so glorious about this..

.. but I don't ever remember them asking my opinion on it..

.. but it's my blog so I can do wtf I want :p

All Stars not amused.. the ONLY time they ever threw anyone back in the water was when Nagano WON the farking competition and they threw him in as a gesture because it was a joke.. a way to say "you failed to get wet in this course.. let me help you".. not as a celebration of failure like Levi.. again.. he's still a kid and doesn't know or care to understand.

Takeda giving in the look of "wtf.. these kids don't know jack about Sasuke".. and I happen to agree. Hoping ANW doesn't get 10 back.. or if they do send more back.. send some that actually know more about Sasuke than to embarrass themselves that way.

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 going through the mental preparations of Stage 3

I love it :) btw.. I see Shingo's still standing with a towel on while the guys are ignoring Levi.. heck.. everyone is ignoring Levi now.. LOL

TBS reminder of Kanno's triumph over the Shin-Cliffhanger. The first non All-star to do it.

And again reliving the Disqualification at the Spider Flip

And his tearful interview after the DQ in Sasuke 22.

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 training back at home

Wow that's a small room... ehem.. Anyway..

Seems he took time off of looking for a job after he graduated college to concentrate training just for Sasuke..

He's sacrificing everything for a chance at the final this time. And boy does TBS love this stuff.. personally I'll be shattered if he turns into Mr. Sasuke..

Recap of Stage 3. 4 up 4 pwned.. 3 victims left

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 getting ready for Stage 3

.. stress.. building... up... big.. time..

Kanno getting direction from the Director..

Fanclub! Distracted by Kawaguchi's yellow sneakers.. LOL

Arm rings no problem!

Kanno's parents are cheering while .. Pappa Kanno holds something..

Looks like a Good Luck card of some sort

Lamp Grasper no problem

Always time for a hit of Sasuke Spray..

Geez.. Ryo's desperately got to chill off the hair dye..

Devil Steps no problem

Onward to the Shin Cliffhanger.. he's beaten this before..

Getting ready for the jump...

And another clear! First 2-Time clear on Shin Cliffhanger!

Thank you.. thank you very much...


Shin Cliffhanger is clear!

Nagano reaction

LOL he's nuts.. you'd think he failed.. he's all stressed again..

Takeda with his own private stash of spray..

Takeda: *&$#&@* friggin show off... that's my Cliffhanger..

Dangit I'm on camera.. I have to appear happy...

Look at the birdy!

Katsumi Yamada 山田勝己 sighting behind Yuuji. He's next to Kenji talking to Ryo.

I'm so distracted by Ryo's hair...

Yamada.. offering advice? Notice Yuuji doesn't care.. neither do Kenji or Ryo :p

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 getting gooped or de-gooped.. hard to tell..

He's making sure his hands aren't going to cramp on him.. choice for this is chalk it seems..

More finger stretching.. he's about to go where he failed the last time...

Onwards to the Jumping Bars..

Doing well.. Hang Climbing up just fine..

.. now for the stupid Spider Flip.. c'mon.. still have enough left in the gas tank...

.. this is where he ran out of gas the last time...

C'mon.. you can do it...

He's up!! He did it!!

.. sorry.. brain fried.. ehem.. back to the show! He gets ready to jump!

Wow Nagano's eyebrows are thin.. maybe he would be better shaving them off and using eyeliner to pencil them in?

I think he likes the idea...


Phew.. he caught it... that's 2/3 today on the Spider Flip!

getting to the Green bar of safety!

This is where fatigue and your brain starts playing with you...

Takeda's reaction to the jump

.. that was cool... LOL Poor Takeda is lamenting the loss of his wifebeater™.. he keeps yanking up his sleeves...

.. is keeping the wifebeater™ warm...

Golf clap..

Parents are proud! (another Mori sighting!)

Stretching out his fingers again..

TBS reminding you how ominous the Final Tower is from the Gliding Ring...

But first.. TBS needs to sell you stuff...

But not before showing you what's happening...

.. oh crap.. he went backwards.. he missed the notch!

Okay we are back.. he jumped the hoop over the notch..

after a few swings.. he JUMPS!!

ever so slightly short...

He powers through!!!!

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 HAS MADE IT TO THE FINAL!!!!!!!!!!!

He's not the only one crying...

Takeda in perpetual shock mode..

That's going to be me damn you... Right Mr. Sasuke Spray? You are always with me... I swear it's become his pacifier..

After being up for over 16 hours and running the course twice.. Nagano wants a warm bed..

.. hurray.. and there was much rejoicing..

Meanwhile back in the fan camp..

Plenty of Kittens being birthed!

Kanno breaks down

Representin' ya'll! (He can use the title of Mr. America.. I mean Damn.. look at that body..)

.. but.. he's Japanese.. so Mr. Japan for you!

Kanno's ignoring me and is doubled over in relief

All-Stars getting ready for Takeda's run while watching the festivities over yonder

Oh.. you want me to slap you again?

Oh I got your towel right here...

It's all warm.. and cuddly..

Probably smells like you too.. it was next to your shirt this whole time.. LMFAO Takeda just won't let go of the bottle.. it's like a drug.. DEATH FIRST!!

That's right.. lemme not fold this thing.. I need revenge from the last time damn you...

(but I want to see what's going on.. it looks fun down there..)

Yes yes I'm paying attention Takeda (damn I wanna see.. )

Okay.. here I go..

Small tap.. because I'm friggin' tired..

There.. you are done.. (I wanna see!!!!!!!!!)

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 beaming with pride and relief!!!

Kanno: Did you see me? I almost took a friggin' header there!! But I clamped down and gave it all I had!!

Final Tower.. it's.. beautiful.... I'M COMING FOR YOU BEOTCH!!!!!!!!

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 is overcome by the prospect of finally reaching the final

(is jealous..) Yay!

Kanno's squat and jump technique!


Friggin' awesome! BUFF DUDE FTW!!

lol I'm not the only one who noticed Takeda's soft tap on the back from Nagano. All that getting out the towel just for that? :)

Arsenette said...

I did find that funny :) I seriously looked like he was too intrigued with wtf was going on in the other area than to be watching what he was doing!! ahahaha
