Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 15




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!!)

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ is up next!

He's a professional rock climber and holds speed records for it

Sasuke 22 marked the last time he was in Stage 3 where he failed on the Shin-Cliffhanger

TBS Suckitude Chart™ shows Sucking and not-Sucking tied

Lee takes a deeeeeeep breath

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ ready for Stage 3

Getting ready for the Arm Rings

Now for the Rope Junction

Takeda mesmerized..

Drug of choice.. CHALK! over Sasuke Spray.. sacrilege!

Devil Steps angle creeping me out..

Okay.. moment of truth.. Shin Cliffhanger time..

Aww how cuuuuute! Nagano offering his support to Lee!

He does this fist pump in the air thing

Aww that's so cute since Lee has no official supporters - Nagano is stepping in showing his support for this longtime competitor

Yuuji taking a deep breath as he watches

Here we go...

So far looking better than before..

And.. SUCCESS!!!!

Lee Enchi リー・エンチ is revenged!!

Koji is elated!

All-Star reaction

Nagano yelling right as he jumps


And there was much rejoicing

Nagano.. uhm.. he can't understand you..

He's doing it anyway.. LOL I don't think Lee cares if he can't understand him.. he's happy someone is cheering him

Okay that translates!

LOL Nagano squints a lot..

Lee acknowledging Nagano's support

Damn.. I have to do what now??

This.. is going to suck..

Jumping bars next..

Okay.. this should be easy for him..

But first.. Audrey needs to sell you a car.. while Kasuga backseat drives..

Back at the Hang Climbing..

Oh. he put his feet up! This isn't for speed though.. he's been extra careful

Now to get on the Spider Flip

Using his legs as well..

Slowly going up..

WHOOT success! LOL He's resting his knees too

Nagano yelling support again.. in a language Lee can't understand.. but who cares.. and Shingo is dumbfounded.. LOL

Shingo still in LaLaLand.. Akiyama staring at the Jumbo Tron and Bunpei just.. watching quietly

Everyone staring at the Jumbo Tron now.. well .. mostly..

Back to staring live.. LOL that fire behind them is roaring.. I counted like 2-3 campfires and like 5 kerosene heaters.. LOL

Meanwhile Lee is meditating..

Lee listening to Nagano..

Silly Nagano.. I have no idea wtf you are yelling..

Okay.. time to get off this crazy thing..

wtf.. he's.. turning around? on that tiny ledge?

wow he is.. LOL

Getting ready to jump...

WHOOT he made it.. if not barely.. I see him slightly slipping but he's grabbing on hard with his arms

Getting to the green bar of safety!

Still sliding but he's got it

Koji is one animated guy.. I LOVE IT!

Nagano off tush to cheer big time


Bunpei's cute little smile

Lee acknowledging Nagano's insane yelling

Uhm.. I still can't understand you..

Now to get mentally prepared.. don't fall off.. don't kick off the mat..

Mmmm.. Nagano rule™ LOL

Okay okay.. he's staring at the stopper too!

Getting ready...


BIG HOP at the end just like Nagano did in 23 making sure he is in front of the last stopper

Now to swing to safety.. can he do it?

He releases....

HANG ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG OMG HANG ON...

YES!!!!! WOW.. that's impressive!!! He did it!!

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

Wow we have our 2nd Finalist and it's not an All-Star or returning finalist!!

Phew.. after 3 years or so (since Sasuke 17 his first tourney) he finally made it to the final!

Kenji and Okuyama still to go are cheering for the next finalist!

Kenji happy to see a longtime competitor make it. Gives him hope!

Okuyama saying ditto!

Takeda happy a post 30 made it!

Koji is elated to have company as the TBS Suckitude Chart™ is updated - Circle Gets the square

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ still celebrating

I am happy but I am surprised. I didn't think he had it in him but he proved me wrong! Geez when was the last time a foreigner has been in Sasuke Finals??
(Ube says .. wow since Sasuke 8??? HOLY CRAP that's right.. that's been been 9 years.. (September, 2001))

All-Stars happy a fellow supporter has finally made it to the final

Nagano feeling confident that one of their own will make it (i.e. Takeda)

Lee's interview in Japanese/Chinese.. both languages I don't know.. LOL

Wow.. that tower looks so big ..

Yuuji getting ready as he hears the interview.. he's up next

Replaying the revenge on the Shin Cliffhanger

Practice made perfect! He built one at home


Also noting his technique on the Hang Climbing relying on his feet placement as well

His dismount which was almost too short

But he was lucky his momentum pushed him over and not backwards like Kenji did in 23

Taiwan's Lee Enchi リー・エンチ one happy finalist!

Pure elation

Aww a nice moment with the other finalist

That's 2 folks!! Two.. can there be more??

You know there's nothing against having more than 2 winners - just look at Kunoichi

LOL They are tired.. it's like an 18 hour day.. Kenji is yawning and Takeda's bags under his eyes are so big I can float downriver with them

He's not happy being referred to as a flotation device :p

There's much discussion over something I don't know :p

Probably the usual..

LOL those heaters are kicking hot and heavy.. what is Takeda doing? he's slapping Okuyama...

Okuyama starts to giggle...

Kenji is now getting in on the conversation...

Takeda making love to the heater... while Kenji motions back over to Takeda..
wtf are they talking about? LOL

Nagano being interviewed again

Taking a moment for greatness :D

A wonderful review, I must say! Way to go, Lee Enchi! And speaking of greatness... Makoto's selflessness is something to be admired and appreciated. Makoto and you really put a smile on my face. Thank you for that.

Awww :) btw sorry for the screw up with the blogs.. I accidentally deleted 15 then frantically tried to find a way to restore it and I found one.. kinda threw things out of order.. just put 16 up and will work on the last ones for stage 3 hopefully today.. provided I don't have anymore disasters.. LOL

But yes Makoto is a sweetheart and the consummate sportsman so it's great he was just as supportive for those throughout the stage even though he himself wasn't even in the running!
