It's finally happened! All-Star Makoto Nagano 長野誠 has released (April, 2011 release is expected) his first music CD where he sings and plays guitar. He did pretty good on his first venture! We wish him success! Lyrics below.
Edit: 3/13/11 - I updated below the English Lyrics to the song. Makoto Nagano wrote the lyrics for the song and has been arranged and music was composed by Hironori Kaneko 金子裕則.
I am starting to run, to leave behind evidence I existed
To a place where there is the tears and sweat of men, but also strong bonds
No matter how tough things got, we were all there together
To encourage each other, to compete and to take on challenges
And the times when I got afraid, my buddies, you lifted my spirit and kept praying
So all I had to do was believe, to believe in myself and go
Keep on going, towards tomorrow
No matter how broken down you get, always pick yourself up
Don’t get defeated by your greatest opponent – yourself
So one day, you can turn these tears of defeat into tears of joy
You are also starting to run, to fulfill your dreams
To that place where you can shine, where your lives have meaning
With the sun setting on your backs, you still dream and challenge yourselves
No matter how deep you fall, you always crawl back up
So one day I will see you shine, and shed tears from my heart
Because your happiness is my happiness
We are starting to run, to find some meaning in our lives
It is a place of defeat, hopelessness, pain, sadness and tears
It’s my life, is the stage.

Romanji version: Carol Hui Akiyama
Ore wa ima hashiri dashita ikita akashi o nokosu tame ni
Soko ni wa otoko dachi no ase ya namida ga ari, kizuna ga atta
Donna ni kurushii toki mo, kimidachi wa soba ni ite kureta
Hagemashi ai, kisoi ai, idomi tsu tsuketa
Osoreru ore ni kiai o ire, inori tsu tsukeru nakama dachi
Ato wa jibun o shinjite, shinjite susumu dake
Sa a yuke! Ashita ni mukatte
Don na ni uchi kuda kare temo
Akira mezu ni tachi mukae
Makeru na! Jibun to iu saidai no teki ni
Itsuka no hi ka kuyashi namida o yorokobi no namida ni kae yo
Kimi dachi mo ashiri dashita idai ita yume o kana eru tame ni
So ko ni wa onore o kagayaka seru basho ga ari, jinsei ga atta
Senaka ni yuuhi o abite, yume o oi, idomi tsu tsuke
Don zoku ni oto sare temo, hai agatte kita kimi tachi
Itsuka no hi ka kimi dachi no kagayaku sugata o mite,
kokoro no namida o nagashitai
Kimi dachi no yorokobi wa, ore no yorokobi dakara
Otoko dachi wa hashiri dashita
Ikiru imi o sagasu tame ni
Soko ni wa zasetsu ya zetsubo, kuya shimi ya kana shimi ga ari, namida ga atta
It’s my life, is the stage

This is the MP3 worldwide release of the songs. There are 2 songs (each with their own karaoke (or instrumental) versions. First song is the single I was writing about and the second song is a Takasui company song.
It's that time again! This is Sasuke Navi - which is a 1 hour special promoting Sasuke 26! Previous Sasuke Navi's can always be found on my site (Sasuke Navi 25, Sasuke Navi 24, Sasuke Navi 23, Sasuke Navi 22 and Sasuke Navi 21). Massive thanks to Jason again for helping us with the paid service (WIST) and to Supersheep for hosting a stream for the community. Massive thanks for Jams for helping us all out in getting a clean copy of the show so I can do this blog (my copy kept breaking out.. grrrrrrr sooooooo annoying)! Everyone online at that time was able to see it thanks to their help! It's wonderful seeing everyone support each other in viewing Sasuke. That's what makes this experience so fun!
As you can tell already .. this is Sasuke 2011.. granted.. this sucker was recorded WAY back on October 19, 2010 but it won't air until January 2nd in Japan. Full times, etc. are available here. And unlike G4.. Japanese actually enjoy showing the Americans TOGETHER with the rest of the tournament.. okay.. happy thoughts.. happy thoughts.. I'm not here to bitch about G4.. Lalalalalalala.. I know that the 2011 background is confusing the hell out of people here in the United States but it's actually very simple. They put the year of Sasuke according to when it AIRS.. not tapes. So even though it was taped back in October it was always supposed to air during the New Year (thus 2011). We had 2 Sasuke 2010's already (Sasuke 24 being New Year 2010 and then Sasuke 25 which was Spring 2010).
Btw.. this is Naoto from EXILE.. trust me.. you will become INTIMATELY familiar with this kid.. okay okay.. 27 is not a kid.. but trust me you will know about him. He's TBS' ticket to ratings this time around. They will try to gain the HUGE fangirl audience by taking him to Sasuke from one of the most famous musical groups in Japan right now. There are plenty of blogs already talking about how they haven't seen Sasuke in about 5 years but ZOMG they have to see it if Naoto is there! ZOMG.. LOL
And.. HOLY CRAP HE DOESN'T SUCK!
Junior members of EXILE cheer him on!
Geez.. he's in the spiderwalk and doing well?? About time a celebrity does well ;) Btw.. January 2nd, 9 PM Japan time.. Be there!!!!!!
Someone taking a dive .. wtf is that.. Oooooooh new obstacles! Oh my..
I know those panties anywhere! Ehem.. that's Kojima :)
W.. T.. F.. Yikes.. it's a friggin' salad shooter!!!
And hopefully people have a more graceful landing..
.. now do you see why it's called that? Might have been easier to call it a snail? I'm sure the katakana to this is not easy to pronounce... (P.S. Thanks Rider)
And.. a whole bunch of "whoooooooooah".. as Kenji Takahashi 高橋賢次 makes an appearance jumping to the front for a better look
Yes.. Nagano girly giggle in FULL effect :p
Seems Naoto and company do a dance that reminds them of this obstacle
Naoto: "Dude I'm totally going to do that.." Tall EXILE Dude: "You're killing me man... You're killing me!"
And yet another marriage of obstacles.. welcome to the ⑦ ^Giant Swing ジャイアントスイング
Think Jump Hang without the trampoline. Oh btw this is the 4th new obstacle but the 7th one in the first stage. The 3 in between are recalls from previous Sasuke tourneys.
TBS getting their mileage out of head cam™
Okay sorry.. that's kinda cool :p
Now.. lemme explain something..
If you look up in the dictionary the definition of conniption...
Shingo's name is all over it.. LOL
He's FREAKING OUT.. he's bouncing around like a bunny... and yelling...
Then the attack of the giggles and starts to clap in utter .. I guess "no friggin' way" mode.. Er.. note that Nagano just crapped a brick... because he hasn't even moved from that position..
Leaving Nagano and Okuyama in utter SHOCK.. Shingo is looking for support and finds is in UNCLI/STQ land. In the red of Shinya Kishimoto 岸本 真弥 and the one in White pants is Ryo Matachi 又地諒 (aka Arty's love interest :p aka UNCLI #2)
Yuuji (who is UNCLI #3 btw) joins in to help Shingo recuperate from the shock
The shock fully set in .. LOL and now starts the giggles.. Looks like Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチon the right is praying!
Omg check my pulse.. Yamada has emotions! wtf...
Meanwhile.. Kojima is ... not happy...
TBS doing the prerequisite "oh... sooooo... how do you like the.. ehm.. changes?".. Kenji bites his lip...
TBS loves showing his rise to glory.. so they start the reel of him sucking trying to get past Sasuke Trials...
Yet another failure..
Finally his breakthrough.. again.. he was there before.. but yeah.. G4 likes ignoring he was in Sasuke 21.. LOL
Sasuke 24 winner!
Third Sasuke Champion!
In Sasuke 25.. you know.. the one TBS downplayed.. /sigh.. he was finally #100
and the weight of it all knocked him out in the 2nd stage on a total fluke ..
OMG I WANT THAT CAT! Dude.. he just went up in kudo points.. That's a Silvertip Himalayan Cat: Dude.. you totally better not be interrupting my sunbathing with that stupid camera of yours..
And the owner of that awesome cat is Yuuji!! OMG I WANT THAT CAT.. wait.. I want to know the cat's name.. hmm .. must.. find.. out..
Dude.. the weight of the 100 suuuuuuucked..
Now I know wtf Nagano was going through...
Time to train for the TBS cameras!
Hey I know him! I've seen him a LOT in Youtube videos, etc. etc. etc.
Quoting Ube: Also, a special SASUKE shout-out goes to Yuuichi Okada 岡田祐一, who I believe is the guy who maintains 星空パーク in Saitama, where UNCLI and co. go to train sometimes. Yuuji Urushihara was shown training there during Navi.
