Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 1



Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 24.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D (Just remember.. the USA Broadcast of this.. will be.. well.. WE DON'T KNOW.. Idiots haven't even shown Sasuke 23 in it's entirety yet.. and no date has been announced for the next Ninja Fest.. so Sasuke 24 might be in the Summer for all we know.. wtf... which of course delays the rest of the world's release to next year since they buy the G4 ridiculously edited and Americanized version of the same show... Anyway.. For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE NAVI FALL 2010 (1 hour review of Sasuke 24 with fluff pieces of all the major players in the upcoming Sasuke!) and the SASUKE PREVIEW SHOW that aired an hour before the official broadcast. Bare with me.. this show was 5 1/2 hour long (not including the specials..).. so if I suddenly die while blogging you know why .. LOL j/k 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!!)

Start of the show is a big moniker from Sasuke 23 - New Stars vs. All-Stars!!

Anyway.. I'll be doing this in chunks.. Thank you again to everyone for being so patient after my getting sick last year while doing the 21 blog. Thanks to the community for a great event and for everyone doing what they could to enjoy the broadcast together. There were approximately over 1000+ (conservative estimate) people watching Sasuke 24 live. We had 4 rooms (Livestream) averaging 30-40 people each (limit was 50) and thanks to a few fans willing to help stream paid service (WIST) and share that feed with the rest of the community. On KeyHole alone before the show even started was around 400+ watching and that number grew as the tourney kept going. This number doesn't even include the people who paid for subscriptions to online streaming programs like WIST and watched on their own. Also thanks to our friends in Taiwan who found 2 rooms in Justin TV showing an HQ copy of the tournament (that's what I was watching). The room I was in had 350 people while the other room had over 200.. I was also told that TVAnts possibly was showing TBS finally (though that part was not confirmed). I do hope it does show how much the online community has grown!!

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志

Makoto Nagano 長野誠

They started out by showing the final of Sasuke 23 where the last representative of the "New Stars" died a painful death in the final Stage.. erm.. sorry getting in the moment here.. Anyway.. the last representative of the All-Stars was none other than Makoto Nagano. The final battle to win Sasuke has not finished so they have come up with a New Year's show to finally get a conclusion! New Stars.. or All-Stars.. WHO WILL REIGN SUPREME!! ALLEZ CUISINE!! Sorry.. again.. getting carried away again..

Sasuke 2010 GET IT ON!

Prerequisite pwnage material incoming

They go on to show a bunch of spoilers that were repeated in the various commercials and specials (Just go back and see them.. saving picture space as best I can!!)

Major spoilers are Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 giving birth to kittens while making dogs wail with his high pitch scream..

Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 and Makoto Nagano 長野誠 having kittens of their own..

Someone getting utterly pwned by the 2nd stage Unstable Bridge アンステーブルブリッジ

and.. WTF.. did someone fall into the water .. from the Gliding Ring グライディングリング ????

Who will be the 3rd winner!?

Because everyone needs to sign in.. yo

Next were the prerequisite interviews of key players (seemed like the last possible rehash of Navi footage as if they were paying per click or something.. I mean seriously.. I saw it 3 times with this being the 4th.. If you want to watch it again.. you know where to look..

Mister Sasuke Katsumi Yamada 山田勝己
I'm going to do my best or I'll retire!!! No for real.. I'm serious this time.. I know I said it before.. no really.. I'm dead serious.. Dude I'm 44 now.. I'm serious I'll retire..

I want this flag.. dang it's blowing like hell.. Sasuke New Year's Day (er.. even though we taped December 8th.. but who's paying attention.. cough.. ) er.. uhm... 2010 .. GET IT ON!

Who will touch the red button this time!!

#1 is Nobuyuki Kishi 岸宣之 獅子舞師 - He's a Lion Dance Instructor
