Sasuke 24 - Spoilerific Review - Part 7




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!!)

Well after that caning ritual.. Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 is up next

If you don't know who he is by now I seriously wonder if you even watch the show..... Anyway.. he's a Gas Station (was gas Jockey then Manager now District manager) and of course they only person to have ever competed in every single Sasuke competition ever made.

Sasuke 23 was not kind to him.. although he finally made it back to 3rd stage he came up short in the first obstacle since it was clear he injured his shoulder again.

Because the current tournament was just 3 months since the previous tournament he had very little time to recover... so when all other things fail.. suck it.. er.. suction cup it..

Here's the string theory from Sasuke Navi.. I'll behave :)

Shingo made to goof off in front of the cameras again.. climbing the station

Climbing even more..

And climbing even more..

Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 - Mr. Perfect Attendance. This is of course his 24th tournament.. 13 years later..

Wow.. 13 years? Geez..

Interesting chart you will be looking at.. Here are the All-Stars. On top is Bunpei Shiratori (marked as not competing or something like that), next is Kazuhiko Akiyama and they have an X for failing.. and .. Katsumi Yamada.. and what is that notation? In .. red? RETIRED

Will any of the All-Stars get to touch this red button today?

Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 - Gas Station Manager

(For those who care.. Shingo's theme music is "The Chickens are Revolting" (the second part around 1:30) from the movie Chicken Run - and no.. I'm not kidding..)

Skipping forward to the Jumping Spider an obstacle that took him out in the past.. but doing well!


Oh for the love of..

Okay he's getting off this thing.. whoah that's precarious..

..................... wtf.. (bleepidity bleep.. bleep.. )

meh.. get going already!! Crowd is cheering Yama-moto!

He carefully goes over his past death area..

Getting ready for the wall..

No! He misses the wall!

Okay he immediately goes back and runs at it again


He slams his hand up against the wall and looks up at it again..

FINALLY.. he's up...

But he's exhausted.. he's sloooowly going up the wall .. almost crawling along..

At this point you can hear Nagano SCREAMING at the top of his lungs to move it

Shingo just goes for it with almost no wind left..

Catches it really low..

I can hear Ube screaming.. DON'T GO UP!!!!!!!!!!

But he's not listening....

He gingerly throws himself over the top and tries to come down the netting

.. and he still gets stuck..

He then trips over the pipe as you hear the klaxon blaring..

He grabs his hat and realizes that my husband is right.. HE CAN'T WIN WITH HIS HAT ON AT THIS POINT!!!! /bangsheadonwall

Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 - Death by TIME UP! (er.. around .. wait he didn't even touch the rope to the Tarzan Rope)

.. the famous Shingo tongue sticking out...

meanwhile Sato is unphased.. and if he said anything I'm totally not paying attention..

All-Star Suckitude chart updated.. added another X under Shingo while Yamada still screams retired

Nagano is obviously stressed.. Lee is just standing there dazed

Yamada is just standing there too while Bunpei strikes up a conversation which I can assume is Takeda since I see Akiyama's red jacket behind Nagano

Oh yeah Nagano's stressed..

Daaaaaaaaaamn that just puts more pressure on the last 2 guys..

Yuuji is just standing there while Kanno is getting ready to go soon

Kanno mutters something..

Yuuji breaks into laughter

Good luck you!

Shingo just dumbfounded at his run.. even with the screw ups he was still close to the end.. oh the possibilities.. gaaaaah

Shingo just walks up to the Jump hang and just stares at it in utter disbelief..

I.. hate you.. I hate you so very very much.. You have caused me more trouble in this show .. I swear....

Meanwhile.. back at the time sinker..

Whiff number one.. I mean seriously.. Miyazaki made it vogue to screw this up this badly..

Okay.. getting a better push off the wall..

Squeeeeeeeak.. got both legs on there...

Holy crap facing the wrong way...

Pushes off it....

Okay this time fer shur....

Safe arrival.. sorta.. even then he's precarious not to move in any direction for fear he'll take a header into the water and solidify his dorkdom..

Wiff up the wall.. this of course the other time sinker...

With Nagano's voice clearly heard to him he jumps down the Slider Jump with reckless abandon (meanwhile I only heard Nagano's voice in replay because live I was screaming at this point myself...)

And for someone who goes underneath the jump hang a lot .. this would have been a perfect position.. but I guess the thought of his foot touching the water.. AGAIN.. was just too strong in his mind...

FRIGGIN HAT!!!!!!!!!

/sigh.. He's just tired at this point.. so tired...

"I screwed up again didn't I?"

It's the hat.. I put crazy glue on it.. I swear.. I thought it would help

.. he sure has a fascination with his tongue doesn't he?

yes.. yes I do :D

.. baka..

speaking of baka..

He shocked the crap out of me in 22 when he justified his number (finally) and actually passed the first stage..

Then he made me. er.. well.. okay fine... I laughed. happy now. I LAUGHED.. I mean I was shocked and it looked painful but I laughed in 23..

speaking of laughing he's in Gift

Sato family cam™ Dunno kanji so no idea what the boys names are but one is 9 and the other is 12 and his wife loves them all. She's always ALWAYS smiling and cheering. So if there is a silver lining in Sato is that I enjoy watching his family cheer him on.

Edit: Kumiko is his wife. Older son is Fumiya and younger son is probably Yuya

Meanwhile keeping track at home.. 96 have gone and 10 have cleared!

Mr. NHK himself.. Sato Hiromichi 佐藤弘道 - TV host

Here we go.. Jumping Spider and so far doing good.. I'm sure he's thinking to not screw up here...

While his long-suffering family watches on..

Suddenly I have to Wii.. er.. yeah :)

Okay.. he knows Bunpei is in attendance and it would suck mightily if he whiffed on the wall now..

And.. he actually did it! I'm sure Bunpei is proud someone beat the Warped Wall with his help.

Up and over on the Slider Jump

Plenty of time at the Tarzan Rope

Different angle again but he has plenty of time to walk down the plank

And he does make it.. again..

Wow he's pretty sedate again.. usually I'd see him grinning ear to ear..

97 are down.. 11 have cleared!

Dunno his wife's name but she's become a Mexican Jumping bean as she and her kids go ballistic. Ube can hear her screaming at his house..

And the kids already expected this.. but they just got their heads slammed into each other.. GONG!!!!!!!!

Yeah.. my Mom's nuts.. please forgive her..

L. M. F. A. O. LOOOK AT YUUJI.. he's soooo not pleased.. Ahahahahahahahahahahahha

That TBS camera is pulling away from Yuuji as fast as they humanly can.. ROFL!!!!!! I see Yuuji is channeling Shingo from Sasuke 22 :) Ahahahahahah You have to love it! If that doesn't solidify that most people don't like him nothing else will..

Kanno politely applauds as the rest of the crowd golf claps

Meanwhile the All-Stars are politely clapping and Takeda is just smiling and using his tying his shoes as an excuse.. LOL SHingo has his face away from the camera as to not show him cursing.. ahahahahah

Yeah.. I'm tying my shoes.. I'm busy..

Sato Hiromichi 佐藤弘道 - STAGE ONE CLEAR

And blogging about Sato will continue...
