Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 17




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!!)

After nearly having a heart attack because I accidentally deleted part 15.. but restored the contents because Google Reader had it saved.. yay.. Part 16 is screwed up on the archive time line there but hopefully not many will notice :p .. Mental note.. pay attention to what you are deleting..

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 is up next! (I can hear snowy squealing!)

TBS reminding us of the painful wipeout from Sasuke 23

Getting allllll the way to the mat but falling backwards.. gah.. that would have have made 3 in the final.

We cried too Kenji.. we cried too..

Seems they got new footage of KONGO! Here he is practicing on a mock Flying Chute フライングシュート

Here he is testing out a Salmon Ladder サーモンラダー

Hmm.. and a Pole Maze ポールメイズ

Back to recent footage of him going up girders

And jumping steps sideways

Aww here's the Takahashi family. His son's name is Tomu, not sure of his daughter and his wife's name is Yuri

Oh.. so cute! Father and Son doing training together!

Wow.. his son is good...

Aww this is cute so happy Kenji is finally getting some fluffpiece time! I love his family!

Btw.. TBS Suckitude Chart™ proving that there's not much sucking going on right now

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 doing the walk up to start his stage 3 run

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 - KONGO EXPRESS

.. God I hope he makes it...

TBS reminding us of the obstacles - Arm Ring アームリング

Aww so cute! The Takahashi family is together with the Okuyama family

Rope Junction is next

LOL he PWNS the Rope Junction

Koji can't believe his eyes.. having DONE it he is impressed at his speed.. (P.S. Nagasawa on the far left of the screen cheering)

Devil Steps デビルステップス

... freaking me out....

Time for Sasuke Spray..

Kawaii.. the kids are all talking to each other cheering on Kongo

Shin-Cliffhanger 新クリフハンガー

This is a thing of beauty..

Crosses his hands over...

Ridiculous shoulder strength required to pull this badboy off..

There.. Ube's calling it the Kongo Cross™ so there you have it!

LOL just another day at the office...

Stunned silence at the Kongo Cross™

Polite cheering from an anxious family

Let the games begin.. Jumping Bars ジャンピングバー

Very quick...

Hang Climbing ハングクライミング

Very quickly setting up under the Spider Flip..

Okay he's using his legs for support now

Hauling body up there...

.. Geez Takeda.. giving me a heart attack..

Never EVER seen him this nervous..

Is .. he crying?

No.. just really concerned.. anxious? I can't tell.. but he is definitely nervous..

Spider Flip スパイダーフリップ

.. and the jump..

Safe arrival!

Quickly sets up on the Green Bar of safety!!! WOW he's on a mission!!

His wife Yuri is screaming support!

Time for revenge...

Kenji shouting to pump himself up

Carefully removing the bar from the stopper...


No I don't want to shop at La La Port..

Back to selling cars...

Gliding Ring グライディングリング


HOLY FRIGGIN' CRAP!!! HE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kenji and I are doing rebel yells and I woke up half the neighborhood in Tahiti!!!!!

Kongo going apesh$t on the mat there..

I mean.. he's seriously freaking out..

Kenji Takahashi 高橋 賢次 - STAGE THREE CLEAR!!!

More celebration!

TBS is being smart by not sending the poor little woman reporter in the line of fire.. LOL

LMFAO Ube: Kongu will sex the landing pad right now! WHO WANTS TO SEX KONGU?

More rebel yells!

Kenji collapsing..

UP and over.. LOL This is great!!!!

Complete mental breakdown.. Geez.. what will happen if he WINS this thing? LMFAO!!!!!!!

Oh btw.. the reaction from everyone else.. this is his wife Yuri

Complete Pandemonium!!!

LOL Okuyama's wife Sachiko also going insane! See? MUST spend time with Takahashi family to get rid of social restraints!

LOL Yuri looks like she wants to bear hug Sachiko but they dance holding hands instead.. baby steps Yuri.. baby steps.. she'll come out of her shell soon :)

LMFAO.. but Kenji's mother Yoko obliges and practically bulldozes Yuri.. ahahahhahah this is awesome!

TBS Suckitude Chart™ update - FINALS PARTY EVERYONE'S INVITED.. oh yeah.. Circle gets the square..

L.. M.. F.. A.. O... Friggin Nagano...

He's imitating Kongo's celebration.. LOL


I mean he is happy but that is funny how he imitated his celebration dance

Okay now he's cackling.. LOL

.. still laughing..

Wtf.. the armor on Okuyama is cracking.. he's friggin' SMILING!! What is this.. emotion... thing.. does not compute...

Meanwhile in the middle of pandemonium is poor Yuri having kittens, cow, and an array of barnyard animals

LOL She's grabbing her head to keep Yuri's head from exploding!

Koji, Ryo and Lee staring at the Jumbo Tron to get the upclose look of Kenji having a emotional breakdown

Meanwhile.. back at the mat..

Kenji is still trying to recover from FINALLY reaching the final after almost 10 years of tournaments..

His very first tournament was almost 10 years ago back in Sasuke 5 in March, 2000

That's.. a long time to devote to FINALLY get to the final

This guy knows how long he's been at Sasuke..

Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩's first tournament was also Sasuke 5

Family still having a block party.. kids are being thrown up in the air!

Yuri doesn't have a sign to hide behind like Koji's Mom but figured her daughter's hat was sufficient enough

Poor woman is about to pass out

TBS risks sending the reporter chick up there and he calms down

Okay now he's crying (don't worry I am too..)

Oh oh.. he's starting again.. RUN FOR COVER!!

Poor Yuri..

Back to the Kongo Cross™

This is just insane..

He's been practicing this move for a long time now

And he has it perfect now

Speaking of perfect.. he couldn't have done this better even if he wanted to

By far the best landing possible after such a heart breaking defeat in Sasuke 23

Replay of the Kongo celebration

Aawwwwwwwwwwwwww now he's mauling his daughter

And then picks her up

YES!!!!!!! PDA DAMMIT!!! He hugs his wife!!! WHOOOT!!!!! I love Kenji!

LOL his daughter trying to breathe.. LOL

Awwww he's still wiping tears..

Okay NOW I'm nervous..

Takeda now actually says something with such a melancholy voice...

Then throws his arms wide as if being crucified..
LOL Ube: Meanwhile, the torture of Toshihiro Takeda goes on.

Nagano all smiling as he's confident everyone else will get to the final with 4 already there!

Sorry.. stopping for greatness

No idea what is being asked..

But since when does that stop me from posting Nagano pics?? :p

Yuri running over to offer support the next wife in the firing line..

Sachiko is now bowing to Yuri for the support she's receiving now that her husband is up next

I'm cheering too!!!!!!!!

What a wonderful tribute to the guy who has probably been cut more than everyone else considering how far he's always gotten. What a great family. Wish they didn't always show his daughter's name in hard to read purple, but I swear it's "Ain" which is a REALLY unusual name, but then they are not a typical family...

I'm all verklempt all over again.

I've always loved Kenji. Also for the same reasons that snowy does. Unbridled passion for what he likes. There's nothing quiet about him.. if he's happy you will know it.. and that's one huge attribute I love about him. So yes I was screaming and jumping around on my computer chair all morning when he made it to the final. Just like I want Takeda there I wanted Kenji there.. they've been going to Sasuke all this time.. and yes Kenji being cut a LOT so people lost sight of how he was doing didn't help. Might have helped him in the long run as was suggested before though.

I wouldn't doubt that she has an unusual name since his son has one. She is cute though!

Snowy me too :D
