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..
UBE'S Sorta-LIVE-BLOG FOR SASUKE 24 IS HERE!
(Massive thanks to Ube for his help on the names in English and Japanese of all the competitors!!)
And despite the fact that he just sprayed his hand.. he cleans snot with the same hand.. ew...
Takeda's failure in the 3rd Stage Spider flip in Sasuke 23 was one of those "aaaaaaaaaaaack" moments he seems to be filled with.
Channeling the 1980's he runs with his collar up...
And trains now in parks as well!
Back at the garage of the fire house he trains as well
And he finally took out his family from hiding!
Wife Miyako and their 2 sons Reiya who is now 9 and Reio who is jumping around like a maniac is now 5 years old
.. it's payback time... (as Bunpei watches at a safe distance.. lol)
Jedi Grandmaster Nagano is presiding over this solemn event...
Nagano: Are you ready my son.. Take my Aura and go forth and kick butt...
Holy crap he hits harder with no wind up.. wtf.. (LOL Check out Nagano grinning..)
Dude.. that isn't fair..
I think I felt that in my spleen...
Ow.. that really did hurt..
Okay.. glad I'm alone here.. because this is .. embarrassing..
Oops.. you are right there.. and you saw.. everything.. crap..
.. busted.. (LOL he even coughed .. seems Nagano loosened up something in there..)
Btw.. wtf is up with Takeda's shirt? He looks like a billboard.. he's selling hair care products on his right shoulder?
Sorry.. 97 have gone and 11 have cleared..
Yamada is still retired and we got 2 more to go.. will ANY All-Star actually get out of the first stage??
Btw.. for those who care.. Takeda's thems is "Ao no senshi" 青の戦士 ("Blue" or "Pale" Warrior) from the Star Ocean EX (anime) soundtrack
Uhm.. cameraman.. you are in my way.. no seriously.. you are in my way..
Uhm.. still in my way.. I hear them starting..
Fine.. I just run around you then...
Ick.. not as painful as Paul Darnell but he does come down on his ankles...
And slightly trips forward...
Now.. the person who made this famous..
Yep.. the no run up one shot wall trick the "Takeda™"
Grinning because he knows he's going fast...
WHOOOOOOAH BESSY.. hold the phone.. wtf...
He's actually one lucky bastard right now..
Okay.. he got onto the netting...
Flung himself over..
And as graceful as a bull in a china shop..
He's slowing down considerably as he totally botching this exit..
In the meantime Nagano is going hoarse SCREAMING at the top of his lungs again to move it the heck along and stop horsing around..
Like being whipped.. he starts to hurry again...
Getting hung up again because he has the attack of the giggles....
FINALLY he's going down the ramp as the klaxon is blaring in his ear. He takes a look at the timer and notices he's good.. and he just slows down.
Gently puts his hand on the buzzer..
And then collapses on it.. "yay.. an All-Star made it..."
FINALLY.. with just over 6 seconds left.. Takeda makes it..
The only 2 Takeda fans in the audience? If you import we will come.. LOL
Kanno now feeling the #99 pressure as he just grins
Oh for the love of.. FINALLY.. we have a O on the board.. heck they even put his name in bold red so you can see it in the midst of all that gray.. Circle gets the square...
And his ritual looking at Mr. Higuchi up on the director's box "see? I told you we'd get one in there.. somehow.."
".. if only barely..."
"Idiot.. stop channeling Shingo and get down here!"
Phew that's a load off my shoulders..
HOLY CRAP.. I ALMOST BLEW IT....
Takeda finally realizes how much he almost blew up at the last second after having a huge lead..
Sits and ponders what on Earth possessed him.. seems he got cocky halfway through the run..
Btw.. Takeda Salute™
Here's the moment of stupidity...
About here he realized he was still hanging on to the friggin' pole and was waaaaay out of position there.. but luckily he wrapped his feet on the net..
And managed to keep one hand on the pole long enough to recover...
Here he's sliding back as he's trying to get the net closer to him.. somehow..
Finally completely recovers and is able to one hand the net since he's secured with his feet
and upwards now..
LOL no peace signs going down the pole?
Nope just lets go and lets gravity haul him down
I mean seriously.. I half expect one of those signs to say "Eat at Joe's".. he's a friggin billboard for crying out loud... I'm half tempted to make a shirt for him that says "PLACE AD HERE"..
Meanwhile the last of the New Stars is one of the Finalists from Sasuke 23
Where he was nowhere near the top.. okay .. closer than some but .. no nail biter..
/sigh.. a college graduate he refuses to get a real job.. so for now he cleans pachinko parlors at midnight to earn a little cash to get by..
In his one room apartment doing exercises
.. and his declaration that Sasuke means so much too him now that he will not get a real job until he reaches Kanzen Seiha.. yeah.. I think TBS is retiring Yamada so they can raise this one to take his place in the deadbeat category.. /bangsheadonwall
Sorry.. just annoyed at the turn of events with him.. seriously.. all that talent and he takes this gameshow so seriously he is willing to throw his life away for it.. I swear he hasn't been watching Yamada for the past 13 years...
菅野仁志 - Unemployed.. er.. sorry.. Gymnast
P.S. I have no idea what his themesong is so if you do please share
Geeez.. wtf is up with the HPA today.. it's like everyone is taking a ride.. are they on LSD or something?
This.. is not.. a merry go round...
Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaah he is not even close to landing on that one...
Okay okay.. he slides down a but more to allow more space...
Okay.. finally geeeeeeeez...
Up on the wall and noooooooooooo he misses it...
Okay he sets up pretty fast again...
WHIFF A SECOND TIME!!!
That my friends is the face of someone in panic..
NOOOOOOOO omg.. he's .. imploding...
He's sucking wind like Iketani right about now... The nicer one not the.. oh enough tantrums for today.. I'm out of energy..
JUST GO UP THE WALL ALREADY...
Kanno desperately trying to compose himself because right now he looks like he's going to cry...
FINALLY!.. wow look at all that time evaporate...
Falling low on the Net.. and you can hear almost a pin drop... there's literally no hope left..
Klaxon is wailing away and he's desperately trying to get onto the mat...
Time runs out just as he gets to the platform to go up to the Tarzan Rope when he just collapses..
His friends are in shock... Kawaguchi's jaw is on the ground.. he cannot BELIEVE what just happened..
Parents between unidentified chick are in shock as well
Yuuji is gutted...
As tears roll from his eyes.. he can't believe he just saw that
菅野仁志 - Death by Time up er.. after the Slider.. oh it doesn't matter either.. TIME UP...
Nagano who's extremely emotionally driven (positive AND negative) is not liking what he's hearing...
Here's Shingo.. no wait.. Kanno just one upped him on this one..
1st push off...
Slides down here to get a closer to the platform
And finally jumps off
Here he is going for the wall again as he's already freaking out...
With the klaxon blaring he's seeing his dreams vanish into thin air..
A spent Kanno now ponders his next move...
Also emotionally driven Kanno is uncontrollably crying as he talks to Yuuji
Yuuji tries to comfort him and Kanno collapses
Yuuji can't even bare to watch
Something Yuuji says calms Kanno a little bit
One cannot NOT love Takeda!!!! :)
If you have time please clear something up for me... the competition lasted 5.5 hours, or the broadcast was 5.5 hours???
Jelena I know! right? :D
Rufus the broadcast of Sasuke 24 was 5 1/2 hours (which was by far the longest broadcast on Japanese TV of Sasuke).
The actual tourney takes a full day to record.. they start like friggin' 8 am with registration and this tourney finished before the sun went up the following day...
Sato's wife is Kumiko, older son is Fumiya, younger son is probably Yuya.(They didn't have the hiragana for it, but that's the most common reading for it.)
Notice the first character for Fumiya's name is the same as Bunpei? Has nothing to do with Shiratori but the boy's nickname is "Bun-bun" (boon-boon) Kumiko was Sato's partner on the NHK kids' show, she retired when they got married.
Thanks chaki for the names.. LOL Bun-Bun?
Kanno is a sad case.:(
