Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 2




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..).. 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!!)

46 have gone but no one has passed stage 1!

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! I didn't know he was going to be there!! Ehem.. sorry..
Tomohiro Kawaguchi 川口朋広 運送業 (Delivery man)

Edit: For those who care his theme song is from the 1997 Ultraman Dyna "Super Guts" [ウルトラマンダイナ]Take Off!! スーパーGUTS

Oh.. his wife Miho is pregnant!

Hmm seems TBS is putting up charts for groups! I'm only guessing this is the former STQ (Sasuke Trials Qualifiers) list of competitors and he's the first... can anyone confirm wtf is on that chart?

Just fine through the Jumping Spider

FINALLY Today.. someone gets to the 5th obstacle - Half-Pipe Attack ハーフパイプアタック

Now for the dismount... he failed this before.. going around the corner too fast and literally falling OFF the course..

wtf.. I hate when they give me heart attacks like this..

Okay only played on the rope once.. he's now making sure he takes his time around this stupid corner.. unlike Shingo who takes a bath here.. he fell onto the ground... in Sasuke 21

First guy to get here too! - 6th obstacle - Soritatsu Kabe そり立つ壁 (what G4 and I call the Warped Wall)

Gah.. I hate when they stroll along and just take their time setting up for this.. gives me agita..

K first time up the wall and he clears it!

K next stop is the place that took him out in Sasuke 22 - Slider Jump スライダージャンプ

Doing good....

YES! Revenge! HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!

He's taking his time as to not get hung up on the net

Almost there.. 8th obstacle - Tarzan Rope ターザンロープ

And that connects directly to the final obstacle - Rope Ladder ロープラダー (which I always call the Rope Wall since that's what it looks like to me :D )

I'm so excited!!!!! He's got friggin 20 secs to go across this stupid bridge...

Kawaguchi lets out a rebel yell!

And EMPHATIC ending to Stage 1!

Tomohiro Kawaguchi 川口朋広 - STAGE 1 CLEAR!

47 up.. 1 clear!!

STQ'ers having kittens! (I see Ryo, Koji, Kanno and various others)

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!!! 16 seconds to spare!

LOL and he collapses in relief!

WOW she looks different again!!! This is his chameleon wife Miho.. Dudes.. check out what this woman has looked like in under a year.. LOL

This is her during Sasuke 22 Trials

This was her during Sasuke 21

Anyway.. Congrats on your first child coming soon™

Replay on the slider jump so people can analyze like crazy if it was moved back to it's original position or not :p

lol are they BOTH leaning? j/k he's bending over to get his breath LOL

Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 on the left and Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 on the right


Shingo's doing a valiant attempt to catch up Toshihiro

But Toshihiro is pulling up his knees.. he's going for it...

Shingo's trying to lengthen his stride!

.. but he's going into hysterics!

But he's still hanging in with Takeda!

Both are laughing now as they are evenly matched..

But Takeda is starting to pull away!

They are still the same distance apart! But still running hard!

Shingo won't let go though!

But Takeda still beating him!

Shingo lengthening his stride again!

But it's no use! Takeda can't be beat today!

They both start to pull up by now

As they are running out of room!

Race goes to Takeda!!

Makoto Nagano 長野誠 not having it this year.. LOL

And we have reached the halfway point!
50 people done.. 1 clear!

Hurray! Kenjiro Ishimaru 石丸 謙二郎 - TV Host and Actor

Already at the Jumping Spider

Noooo to short.. he didn't have enough forward momentum and came up short...

Doh.. he falls forward but is stopped from being doused in water by the support planks holding up the trampoline

.. which anyone who watched Rie Komiya land on her butt before on it knows.. that's a course out..

And the confirmation is there.. course out..

Fark.. He was much too far out to get between the walls

Shingo and Takeda racing, lol. I would've expected Shingo to win, since he's the one who used to do track and field. Hard to run when you're laughing, though.

Don't give me a hard attack, I mean heart attack with that last line. Gah why did this one have to end on that?! Curse you RR!

Chaki said...

The box you are referring features the list of well-known participants to be up next.

Loved the extended features on Akiyama and Kawaguchi! They had this great introduction before his run like: "46 have tried and 46 have fail, but then an incredible warrior (tsuwamono) arrives..."
Then they show Kawaguchi and I SCREAM!

They hinted that he would be the first to complete the course so I was super excited! And Miho has totally mellowed out. Can't wait to see their baby when Daddy hits the Finals!
