Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 11




Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 24.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D 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..).. Took a break to see Sportsman #1 and rest as best I could. Hopefully I'll have more up this week coming up. 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!!)

Next up in Stage 2 is Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司

He's a Personal Trainer (or Sports Instructor as the announcer says) and former gymnast (See Kanno? You can get a job... ehem..)

Oh yeah.. he had probably the embarrassing wipe from the Salmon Ladder..

Thanks Rider for the .gif - This was Sasuke 23's failure..

Getting to train in the same place you work has to rock :p

.. why does this picture look lewd.. he's only doing leg presses..

Hashimoto parents. I don't know what their names are but I love his Mom! She's so animated when she's happy!

Revenge on the Salmon Ladder is just soooo sweet!

Transition to the Unstable Bridge

Doing very well on the Unstable Bridge

Because doing the Balance Tank makes you think of selling Cars..

He's already at the Metal Spin ...

His parents are also selling stuff!

... Chicken.. mmmmmmmm.....

WHOOT! Clear on the Metal Spin!

Hot-dogging on the last wall as he knows he's going to clear!!

Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 is kicking a$$ and taking names!

And this is why I love his parents..

His Mom is totally bouncing up and down. It's just so rare seeing Japanese parents so openly affectionate and animated for their children! When it comes to parent/child relationships I love when parents are openly supportive!

Lee Enchi is looking on as he is about to go next. Clapping with his sticky fingers.

Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 - STAGE TWO CLEAR

Hey.. I don't know Chinese either.. bare with me...

Lee is coming back from a loss at the Metal Spin from Sasuke 23

btw.. update the TBS Suckitude Chart™ - O gets the square with Koji's victory
.. though Sucking is still sucking more than sucking less..

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ

Lee responding to the thunderous support!

After pwning the Salmon Ladder he's doing excellent on the Unstable Bridge

Clear on the Balance Tank

.. setting up for the Metal Spin..

No problems on the Metal Spin

And no problems on the Wall Lifting!

Yes! He's back in the 3rd Stage again!

Yuuji watching Lee clear

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ - STAGE TWO CLEAR

Meanwhile just found out what company Yuuji works for.. idiot me didn't read the boxes all over the place.. written in English.. duh.. Haruta Shoes

Yuuji's last Stage 2 appearance was a shock as he fell off the new Unstable Bridge

Hoping not to do the same mistake you see him with Kawaguchi (who didn't learn his lesson) setting up a makeshift unstable bridge made out of plastic in the backyard of one of the guy's houses (don't remember who's house this is)

Yuuji practicing on it while Kawaguchi holds the pole supporting it in place.. LOL

There we see 2 people that need to be in Sasuke soon.. Makoto (who I refer to as "Moody") Yahagi 矢作誠 and Keita Tomino 富野恵太 (#4 cliffer)

btw.. update the TBS Suckitude Chart™ - O gets the square with Lee's victory

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 - Shoe salesman (UNCLI #3) (cough.. take a drink.. Descente Logo.. again.. different color..)

Yuuji Fanclub with some of the UNCLI mixed in there with STQ'ers

Great shot of the first obstacle

Yuuji having no problems with the Salmon Ladder

.. here we go.. Unstable Bridge..

Same place as last time..

Takes a step back and makes sure he gets one big swing onto the platform this time..

It did the trick! Now doing just fine on the Balance Tank..

And he always struggles on this last wall..

Hearing the Klaxon blare he just shoves his body underneath


Collapses in relief!!

Yuuji fanclub having kittens

More kittens!

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 - STAGE TWO CLEAR!

Gets up to celebrate with friends

LOL .. then collapses back on the ground

.. he's so happy he passed this stage again..

Success on the Unstable Bridge. He took his time and stuck to his plan

TBS chick mentioning how large (and loud) his fanclub is

He shows his appreciation to his friends

Friends respond back

btw.. update the TBS Suckitude Chart™ - O gets the square with Yuuji's victory

Patiently waiting his turn is KONGO EXPRESS

Praying he gets through...

Okuyama looking on as he's up soon

Sato getting organized

Takeda messing with his shoes ignoring the camera as best he can

TBS reminding us that the 4 times he's passed the 1st stage he has NEVER failed Stage 2..

Takahashi family spending time in the playground

watching Daddy train

Looks like the entire Takahashi family. Wife and kids and .. parents on both sides? Someone's gotta help me here with the kanji. Not sure who are the 2 on the right and the one on the left.

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次

Doing well on the Unstable Bridge

.. the dismount..

Doing well on the Metal Spin

LOL here he speeds up considerably and you hear him YELLING as he THROWS each wall emphatically in the air and runs underneath

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 ANNIHILATING the 2nd stage.. geeeeez look at that time..

Takahashi family having kittens

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 - STAGE TWO CLEAR

And another rebel yell for good measure ;)

Sato showing his appreciation

Okuyama doing last minute preparations

All-Stars being interviewed

So how does it feel to be the last All-Star standing?


.. ah.. Takeda.. welcome to Nagano's world :p

KONGO still having kittens as the interview is just basically "thanks" :D

Kenji just can't wait to get to his family

And the first thing he does is grab his daughter

YAY for PDA (Public Display of Affection)!!

1. lol about Hashimoto's mum! :)

2. Lee made it! Hurray!

3. Haruta - now i know. Yuuji was cool & steady, playing it safe this time.

4. Thanks for pics of Kongu's daughter. LOL at his son copying daddy at the playground, climbing all over the place! :D

5. Kongu's daughter is pretty & Okuyama's daughter is cute & cheeky! Lucky dads! Nice to see thir wives & kids cheering for the other family.:)

The kids are cute :) Usually they are not involved (meaning other children of other competitors) so it was cute to see such a family atmosphere apparent in this Sasuke.

Chaki said...

Kongo family names.
His mother is Yoko, wife is Yuri. Normal names end there.
Son is... Tomu! and daughter's name is all blurry. Again, I need HD... but he is giving very unusual readings for the kanji of his children's names, not surprised. His daughter's kanji means "love" and "dream," common pronounciation would be Manamu or Aimu... both sound very odd, even more than Tomu...

Arsenette said...

Oh cool! I'll post that later today and hope I can get a better screenshot of the son's name.
