Sasuke 23 - Spoilerific Review - Part 3




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!!)

Katsumi Yamada 山田勝己 doing pull ups while he awaits his turn

Whatever is this tent.. it seems TBS loves setting up these shots.. lol
Hmm.. they had Takeda and Nagano doing this last year...

LOL what is Yamada staring at? He's doing this incredibly slow.. Oh well..

Ah they are doing this again!

Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 and Makoto Nagano 長野誠 in Sasuke 22 doing the run in the parking lot.

This is different this year though...

Notice while Takeda is going on a full run..

Nagano is not letting go.. LOL

He's keeping up with him! GO NAGANO!!

Yep.. he's not giving up this time..

Nagano: I'm not losing to you again .. punk..

Right about here Takeda starts pulling back..

I'm sure they are just about to crash into the cameras.. LOL

BTW they changed their clothes again.. wtf is up with Takeda's shirt? It looks like it has suspenders on it.. LOL

LOL this is fun :) Seems Nagano was intent on winning this time.

Wataru Ogasawara 小笠原 亘 - Next announcer.. personally.. I don't like this guy.. he's the one that was bitching that the All-Stars had to retire and other useless comments.. so yeah.. I don't like this guy..

Just a reminder.. 50 people have gone.. and 5 have cleared!!

Takayuki Kinoshita 木下隆行 of TKO

Oh crap.. he didn't do a big run up .. so he's stuck on the clothing line!!

Takayuki Kinoshita 木下隆行 of TKO - Death by Curtain Slider

Masumi Yagi 八木真澄 and Shigeo Takahashi 高橋茂雄 of the comedy duo Savanna サバンナ enjoying the debacle

That.. sucked.. LOL

Ah yes.. time for Sasuke Spray...

Next is a soccer player

Showing fluff piece on him

Takashi Fukunishi 福西崇史 - Former Japan National Team soccer player

Ah! He made it to the Jumping Spider!

Spider walk is kicking his butt though.. he's sliding all over the place...

Doh.. as a last ditch effort.. he tries to jump to the platform but it's much too far!

Yay! Akira Omori (大森晃) or Monkickey (モンキッキー) siting :)

Takashi Fukunishi 福西崇史 - Death by Spider Walk.. wait.. actually it's part of the Jumping Spider.. so yeah.. Death by Jumping Spider

Oh oh.. Take a drink again.. Sasuke Spray on his hands.. by Nagano while Takeda watches intently

Nagano is all serious spraying this gunk all over his hands.. LOL


Nagano: Seriously.. I didn't want to.. he made me do it..

Takeda: Don't look at me.. I just work here (wait a minute.. their clothes.. we are going back in time!!! Takeda and Nagano are magical.. "your shirt is black.."

Takeda runs away.. he doesn't want to be called Betty...

Next up is the 17 year old that won the MRT Beach Sports Competition back in late July in Nagano's home prefecture of Miyazaki, Japan.

This is the second year that Nagano and Takeda go to the beach for this competition. The difference this year was that the top prize was a guaranteed spot in Sasuke 23.

Raise your hand if you are SURE!!

Stretch that groin.. er.. legs.. Nagano and Takeda doing morning exercises to loosen up before the event.

Later in the September Ube found this for me :) A blog with pictures from the actual event :D OH! and high quality photos :D

Takeda and Nagano - HQ version of the picture above.

Oh the kid had a birthday so he's now 18.

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 on the final set of obstacles

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 beat the Shin Cliffhanger to get here!

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 - see that G4? He's 18 years old.. :p

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻

Doh.. he gets stuck on the ending of the Log grip.. LOL Check out Takeda yelling at him.

He finally gets off the Log Grip!

Geez he's tall...

He's actually flying through this!

Okay! HPA done and onto the Warped Wall!!

LOL his height was definitely an advantage.. he would have soooo totally fallen if he was shorter..

Wow he's got a lot of time before he got here!!!

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 is getting ready for the thing that pwned Nagano last year...

YES!!! He caught on to the Jump hang of the Slider Jump!!

Ouch.. he flipped over and landed head first upside down into the cargo net!!!

He finally gets out of that predicament but a lot of time has elapsed.. still.. not a bad time getting to the Tarzan rope!

LOL! He needed EVERY Second because he made it with just 5 seconds left!!

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 makes it 6 clears!!!

Nagano approves of this message!

Aahahahahh Nagano and Takeda high five..

I wonder if Nagano had to jump..

Just kidding LOL - All-Stars are happy with the result!

Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻 one VERY happy Miyazaki Prefecture resident!

Okay this is cute. Nagano running to give Yoshiki a high five!

But the kid has other plans..



Nagano feels awkward and just taps his back a few times..

LOL Kid is having kittens and Nagano wants a shower..

Congrats Yoshiki Itou 伊藤圭槻

Takeshi Nadagi なだぎ武 - Comedian.. I won't ask wtf is up with the gesture..

Ouch.. he's moving too fast and head first..

And down he goes! Face first then falls over backwards!

Brain bleach guys..

LOL the comedians are having a field day with this.. Guess Nadagi was trash-talking too much and got what he deserved!

Takeshi Nadagi なだぎ武 looking pretty sheepish right now!
