Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 6




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..).. Geez I thought I was kidding about getting sick.. I'll have to slow down how I do this so bare with me! 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!!)

I hear music and see someone I recognize! Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ
(His theme song of a 1983 HongKong TV series called "The Legend of the Condor Heroes - Part 3: "The Duel on Mount Hua" sung by Roman Lam & Jenny Tseng. (thanks awee) The part used in Sasuke is an obvious instrumental version of this song)

In Sasuke 21 he cleared the 1st stage (here he's shown on the Flying Chute)

Here he is in Sasuke 22 - in fact out of 5 tries.. he's passed the first stage 4 times!

Again in Sasuke 23 he passed the 1st stage

Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - Professional Rock Climber
Thanks TBS for helping him get to Sasuke 24! Poor guy spent a month wondering if he was going to be invited since we now know that JET TV has not renewed their Sasuke License. TBS came in at the last second and was able to get Lee to Sasuke literally 1 day before the event!

Coming up next (oh. it is bad when I start recognizing names in kanji?? I see Yamamoto and Takeda.. Yeah.. I'm not turning into a fangirl or anything.. wait.. turning? oh nvm)..

NO! He's slipping on the Spider walk..

Okay now he's at the Warped Wall

Whoot! On the first shot!

Taking a break to catch his breath on the Slider Jump

Catches it and goes up and over

Very careful to not get snagged in the netting

Still has a little trouble getting out of the bottom section though

Still good time as he gets to the Tarzan Rope

Ending in sight and he's getting a little stuck! GO! GO!!

Gingerly walks across the plank and just taps the red button softly!

Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - STAGE ONE CLEAR!

That's now 92 down and 7 clears!

LOL you get a golf clap from the All-Stars and Shingo does one!!

LMFAO Look at Takeda with that grin :p At least they cheered (wait for Sato.. see how Shingo does.. LOL)

Yuuji is up next and he claps at Lee's performance

Yuuji: Dude.. hit me up man..
Kanno: You got it man.. I got the stuff right here...

Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - back to the 2nd stage for the 5th time!

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 getting ready for his run already hounded by the interviewers

Al Bundy!! :D Ehem.. he sells shoes.. actually .. I'm told he got a promotion of some sort and he seems to be moving up in the company (ala Shingo did in his) . Congratulations!

Sasuke 22 he was just a few feet from total victory!!

Sasuke 23 he had a horrifying end in Stage 2 on the new obstacle the Unstable Bridge!

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 getting focused for his run. The last time he barely made it past the first stage.

Kanji lesson anyone? oh wait.. I know this.. he's said what this is before.. duh..
靴 = Shoe!! That's his Uncli #3 Shirt.. hmm new design

Yuuji smiling and doing a thumbs up for the camera
(Btw for those who care his theme is "BLOOD+ Grand Theme" from the soundtrack of Blood+)

Then quickly goes back to breathing and concentrating
Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 - Shoe Salesman

Coming up next.. lemme see.. Yamamoto.. gah.. I won't cheat.. I don't recognize the 2nd name.. I know Takeda.. and someone's title after that.. 2/4 isn't bad :p

Getting ready for the warped wall with no fuss or walking

And up and over on the first try!

Up and over on the Slider Jump as well

Carefully going over the bar...


Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 - STAGE ONE CLEAR!

Geez he destroyed the first stage!
93 down and 8 clears!

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 totally representin'!

Makoto Nagano 長野誠 - yay...

LOL he's so sedate.. "I knew he would make it.."

.. squinting to see something...

(to Takeda who's next to him) DUDE did you see the timer???

LOL I'm so screwed..

Yuuji celebrating with the top time thus far!

Hmm.. I can't make out the back of this shirt.. is it an UNCLI shirt?
Edit: Thanks Nagasawa-san! This shirt is actually the company that he sells shoes for - Haruta Shoes so the back says HARUTA

Kanno feeling the pressure to succeed

Yuuji bows in appreciation.. a deeeeep bow..

I'm so happy I didn't scrap through this time!! (LOL the high pitch voice gets me all the time)

We've got red pants snowy.... he's not going to be cut or fast forwarded!!


Kenji Takahashi 高橋賢次 (Kongo Express) - Delivery man

Ha they have new footage! I swear they read my blog.. didn't I complain that they have been using old footage of him? LOL Yay!!!!

Heartbreaking loss RIGHT at the platform at the end of Stage 3 in Sasuke 23.. Ooooh man that was painful to watch..

Training harder than ever to make it this time!

Uses heavy boxes to train!

Raise your hands if you're SURE!

Kenji Takahashi 高橋賢次 (Kongo Express)

Coming up next.. okay I see Nagano's name at the bottom now :p Now it's just process of elimination and that's cheating :D

HE has that sideways clear thing on the wall as well!


OH CRAP... nononononoono....

YEeeeeehaw he recovered just in time..

First shot up the wall as well!

Up and over the Jump Hang part

Oooh.. camera angle change... He's also at a fast pace!

Wow he's right behind Yuuji in time! He's fast today!!

Kenji Takahashi 高橋賢次 - STAGE ONE CLEAR!!!

Kongo let's out a rebel yell!
94 have passed and 9 clears!! Will we break double digits today?

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 Former World Sprinter is up next!

LOL wtf is up with Takeda? He's got .. the grin™

Shingo's just tossing his head to the side..


LOL these guys are brutal... I swear we interrupted another one of those conversations that we shouldn't have.. I swear Takeda just swallowed a bird..

Kenji lets out one last Scream of satisfaction. FINALLY all that hard work has been paying off.. he's sure paid his dues that's for sure

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 Former World Sprinter is up next (prerequisite interview)

New footage of him training too!

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 Former World Sprinter

Coming up next.. okay okay I'll cheat.. Yamamoto er.. wait.. I think Sato? yeah Sato, then Takeda then .. Kanno then Nagano.

Mozing along getting ready for the Warped Wall

Up and over!

Also going up on the Jump Hang

Very carefully going down the other side

Enough time as he gets to the Tarzan Rope

Yep he's got plenty of time though he's a little stuck

Very slowly walks across and also gently hits and holds the red button!

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 - STAGE ONE CLEAR!

In complete contrast to Kenji.. I mean you can't get anymore 180 degree difference in demeanor here.. Okuyama quietly celebrates his win.
95 down and 10 clears! YES double digits!

His family celebrates! Oh I'm told his daughter's name is Lilia and she's 6 years old. I'm not sure of his 9 year old son's name or his wife's name. (cough.. a little help here :D .. cough)

Kanno is just happy :)

Meanwhile.. oh oh.. omg this is funny..

Oh wow.. I see Yamada on the far left there next to Bunpei. Takeda and Nagano (with Akiyama between them) are up to no good.. there's an extreme amount of giggling and conversation going on...

Shingo is getting ready...

Oh oh.. why is Takeda trying to get Nagano's attention...

.. they are bending over in laughter.. omg this is bad.. really bad..

I also see the can of Sasuke Spray.. wait.. no lettering on it.. I see Yamada had the limited edition one :p

Takeda leans over to make sure Shingo's ready..

Nagano can't stop cheesing.. now the other guys are smiling..

Geez this is taking long..

Get it over with already...

Winding up..

.. Shingo getting impatient...

PSYCHE hang on the towel is falling off... wtf is Shingo holding his breath? ahahahhahaha

Takeda: Sorry sorry my bad.. I got it I got it..

Takeda: Okay this time for realz man..

Shingo: Alright already just go!

Sure you want me to?

Yeah yeah just get it over with...

Winding up from all the way in Toledo..


Slap is crossing time zones now..

Takeda almost there...

We've got contact!

Wtf.. Nagano wants to get in on the action!!

He slaps him too! LOL I hear Shingo Scream..

Much laughter is ensuing now..

Shingo: wtf that hurt! You guys are crazy! No way in hell is this relaxing!!!


No kidding man that was mean...

Dude quit complaining.. he didn't get up on the platform like he did with Akiyama, AND he triple folded the towel.. AND he had gloves on.. quit whining you pansy..

Even Bunpei found this funny as Shingo continues to complain

Shingo: No way man.. I'm in pain now.. I can't concentrate!

Dudes, seriously.. you all need therapy..

Oh btw.. this was before Okuyama's interview.. LOL

Yuuji and Kongu's runs were simply terrific. Yuuji rushed a lot...he even destroyed the thingie olding up the rope before the Rope Wall, if I remember correctly.
I liked so much the Shingo slap thing...they kept giggling and I obviusly couldn't understand what were they talking about, but when I saw Nagano giggling SO much I knew he was gonna hit Shingo. Thanks for focusing so much on that shot, it was worth it :D

Arsenette said...

He did break it! I totally forgot about that. LOL (Yuuji I mean) That's why when he got to the wall he was completely turned backwards.

Teheheh I wasn't sure whether to put the shingo thing in the end of this one or the beginning of the next one but I figured it would be best to keep the runs together.. and this was during Okuyama's interview :p

After Urushihara's performance, his shoes sales can only ROCKET UP!
Ube: " it has got to be his shoes " :) ( no one has been making fun of his shoes lately. :) )
we will soon be seing Urushihara Yuuji, "Shoe Store Area Manager" maybe? LOL!

btw, Lee has made his "red seconds" 1st stage routine ( 17,21,22,23,24 ). i liked the guy but still i pity his fans who has a weak heart. :)

Arsenette said...

I swear he has a sponsor now.. he has to.. I think he had like 4 different pairs of shoes during Sasuke 24...

OMG yes Lee has a way of nail biting just about every finish! I'm sure he's even just as skiddish about it!
