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!!
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..
