Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 3




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!!)

Time for the first All-Star!
Kazuhiko Akiyama 秋山 和彦
LOL Shingo sporting the Team Tempest T'shirt he got from the ANW guys back in Sasuke 23

I'm so going to need recovery on this blond hair crew thing...

Now 37 (His birthday was this weekend) Kazuhiko Akiyama 秋山 和彦 is the first person to ever to reach total victory way back in 1999 during Sasuke 4

Recently Akiyama has had issues with on obstacle in particular. In Sasuke 20 he ws pwned by the Half Pipe Attack

It pwned him again in Sasuke 22

Uh oh.. the caning ritual....

Presiding over this day's proceedings.. is none other than Jedi Master Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 ... do you see Takeda smiling????

Akiyama: I can take it.. I can take it.. I can take it...

And he does! Not a wince or anything.. LMFAO Look at Takeda looking for a reaction..

Akiyama is not giving him the pleasure.. LOL Takeda still smiling..

Ahahahhaha now Bunpei Shiratori 白鳥文平 is taking one last look with a smirk on his face

Akiyama: I ain't no sissy boy.. I'm a man.. I can take it..

TBS reminding us that 61 people are done.. 1 person has cleared!

Kazuhiko Akiyama 秋山 和彦 - Former Crab fisherman and first Champion of Sasuke
(BTW for those who care.. his theme song is from the movie G.I. Jane. The track is titled The Scorpion's Mission)

Wow he's got like no expression.. he's totally got the face I was telling everyone about :)
"Sasuke.. I'm going to make you my bitch.. bring it.."

With his signature string of hairy crab (yes.. I said hairy crab...) he hails from a tiny village off of the north end of Hokkaido, Japan.

All the way to the Jumping Spider and YES!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOO he's slipping!!!!

Dude he's totally fighting this bad boy.. C'mon YOU CAN DO IT!!

YES!! He uses his arms to keep him up!!

Day of reckoning... incoming HPA...
Crowd is chanting "AKIYAMA AKIYAMA"..

Here we go.. almost.. there.. c'mon.. see the rope...

YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAH!! Caught the rope AND nailed the landing!!!

Whoops slight misstep but he's careful to make sure he knows where that plank is..

/sigh I still don't like when competitor's do this.. he just casually goes to check where the wall is and walks around

Okay.. getting ready for the first attempt!

NOOOOOO.. totally missed it.. was off more than 2 feet it seems..

Akiyama: I swear.. did they make this taller?? wtf...

Tries again.. NOOOOOOOO.. about the same distance... maybe a smidge higher.. but still no go..

LMFAO look at Shingo.. he smiles about everything (well almost everything.. unless Sato is clearing.. otherwise he's pissed)..

Meanwhile back in Nagano/Takedaland™ all is not well..

Though you can tell.. they expected this. Nagano has always gripped that Akiyama doesn't train his lower body nearly as much as he trains his upper body.

Time just disappearing as he tries again

There's no hope of clearing at all at this stage but seems he's out of gas

Even running out of time he's going to go one more time

Same height.. he just can't clear the last 2 feet

As the timer goes down he trips at the bottom

Kazuhiko Akiyama 秋山 和彦 - Death by Time up on the Warped Wall

Nagano already has Akiyama's coat waiting for him

Meanwhile a lively conversation is happening between Bunpei and Shingo.. lol

And Takeda.. with the camera shoved up his nostrils is stifling a smile..

Oh.. he's not happy

Kanji lesson anyone? LMFAO

Wow he was slipping all over the place on the wall.. LOL

Safe landing. I was worried more about this since he misjudges a lot of landings .. especially something this narrow.

I still can't get over the fact how blond he is..

Meanwhile.. you see Japan and USA flags being waved in the air..

Nochi ノッチ (on the left doing his President of the USA Barack Obama impression) - Comedian from Dangerous デンジャラス (Sasuke 22) and Kuruo Hatoyama 鳩山来留夫 (doing his Prime Minister of Japan Yukio Hatoyama Impersonation)

Kuruo Hatoyama 鳩山来留夫 - Death by 12 steps!

Nochi ノッチ 's turn now as he chants "YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!"

Nochi ノッチ - Death by Log Grip!

Next is Udo Suzuki ウド 鈴木 from Kyain キャイ~ン

But first.. this message from a.. Samurai.. on a wooden horse.. on a beach.. wtf are they selling?? WEED?

Suzuki is totally having issues.. he's trying to balance now on the steps..

After a long battle.. he hits the platform.. but fails anyway as he falls backwards!!

Much to the delight of the (not shown yet but he is already wearing his towel.. snicker.. ehem.. Tetsuro Degawa 出川哲朗 on the right). Aoki is .. not even aware of his surroundings..


Udo Suzuki ウド 鈴木 - Death by 12 steps!

At this point my recording got fubarred and I had to restart. Thanks to our streamers (specifically SuperSheep in this case since I used that stream) I was able to fill in the pieces and post screen shots of what I missed.. which turned out to be one of the Fast Forward sections.

Keisuke Katou 加藤慶祐 俳優 (Actor) - Death by Log Grip!

Terukazu Ishikawa 石川輝一 actually has a pretty good record in Sasuke.. just hasn't been able to break the barrier to defeating the 1st stage since his first try back in Sasuke 14.. He's from Muscle Musical マッスルミュージカル

Seems they have the MM kids in a chart? Someone can check for me :)

Doing fantastic so far! He's all the way to the Wall!

(okay back to my feed)
Defeats the Slider Jump!

Throws himself over but doesn't get tangled up!

He's got a lot of time left!!

Terukazu Ishikawa 石川輝一 - FIRST STAGE CLEAR!

64 up.. and 2 cleared already!

Muscle Musical members moments before he touches the red button (sorry the celebratory high fives were blurred and I couldn't use the picture)

Ishikawa is relieved!

Wow when was the last time any MM person cleared? It's been a while!

LOL he actually one handed the Slider Jump!

Terukazu Ishikawa 石川輝一 elated to be in the 2nd stage

LOL next is a montage of fails.. all in the same spot.. the Jumping Spider. Here is the death in Sasuke 21

The death in Sasuke 22

And the death in Sasuke 23.. all from the group.. Muscle Park Demonstrators!

Will this one prevail where all others have failed before??
Ryouji Higa 比嘉良二 マッスルパークスタフ (Muscle Park Staff)

Ryouji Higa 比嘉良二 at work in Odaiba

Here we go.. right in front of the Jumping Spider....

LOL not even close..

Ryouji Higa 比嘉良二 - Death by .. you guessed it.. Jumping Spider!

And the Muscle Park Staff is not happy.. that's 4 straight tournaments.. same spot..

Doh.. way to fall off the landing at the end..
Hoshan ほっしゃん - Death by 12 Steps..

Meanwhile.. as we go back in time when he wasn't wet.. snicker..
Tetsuro Degawa 出川哲朗 - Comedian (Sasuke 23)

And this is how he got wet :p
Tetsuro Degawa 出川哲朗 - Death by 12 Steps

All-Stars: Aaaaaaaaaaah..
LMFAO look at Nagano.. he's cheesing...

Bunpei is enjoying himself a little too much :)

Nagano is still having kittens.. LOL

Nagano already looking for Takeda's reaction while Aoki is .. embalmed.. dude has no pulse..

Aww.. Nagano gets no love.. oh yeah.. take a drink.. more Descente clothing..
