Sasuke 25 Official commercial

As you all know I'm still fangirling from the teaser that came out the other day (thanks Nostalgia High School for the clips!).. well as expected.. the full commercial is out! Unlike the other one it's 50 seconds long and has mostly different clips.

Makoto Nagano 長野誠

Here come the All-stars! They start off with the 2nd champion.. notice.. they don't show Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 in this clip.. at all.. a bit annoying since he's the current champion.. I guess the Japanese complaining about his shoes in the final (talk about sour grapes..) destroyed his image with the Japanese audience? That's horrible.. I think Yuuji is a great champion and deserved his win. EVERYONE changed shoes during Sasuke why should he be faulted for it? Gah.. sometimes I wonder if it's because it wasn't an All-Star winning...

Allstar - Makoto Nagano 長野誠

TBS again.. doing everything they can to make this short guy look.. big.. LOL

All-Star Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩

I see he's slightly growing out his eyebrows.. dude .. go with it.. you look perfectly hot with normal manly eyebrows.. LOL (I'm sure I'm going to hear about he still looks hot now with his female eyebrows.. LOL)

All-Star Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟.. wtf.. he's totally wearing a TUQUE!! Btw.. when I saw him I immediately thought of the Great White North Album where Geddy Lee asks Bob and Doug McKenzie why the camera guy didn't have a tuque.. (:42 in the video)

Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟
Aahahahahhahaaha and he has sunglasses ON THE TUQUE!! GOD I love this guy!

Man in red! All-Star and First Sasuke Champion Kazuhiko Akiyama 秋山 和彦
HURRAY!! :) Sorry.. you all know this is my favorite All-Star

Btw.. no Bunpei or Yamada

I wonder if this is the Japanese Moonwalking Champion
(video here - he's part starts at 2:38 and if so.. his name is Jacky..)

Mmmm.. riceballs.. sorry.. Ube says: the older man in black eating a riceball is almost certainly Katsuhiko Kasahara 笠原勝彦, owner of Kasahara Farm Corporation. He is the Niigata 新潟 prefecture representative.

And this is where you do flips.. BEFORE You start..

Holy hell.. it's friggin' Yukio Iketani 池谷幸雄

Dandy Sakano ダンディ坂野 - Comedian

I see uhm.. boy band Shinsengumi Rien 新撰組リアン

I *think* that's Tetsuji Sakakibara 榊原徹士 on the right about to run and Yoshiya Seki 関義哉.. I feel like I need a shower after wanting to know what their names are.. LOL

The steps are padded green.. LOL ehem.. Sextuple Steps are back.

Rolling Log is back!

Jump Hang is back

Log Grip is back

Makoto Nagano 長野誠 why does he look annoyed? LOL

Makoto Nagano 長野誠 - I'm recovering from not seeing his normal black wifebeater™ and black pants.. now he's got black Descente shirt and a Descente/Move Sports logo right on his a$$

Btw.. he's 99 :p So much for lottery!

Demonic steps onto a flying rope thingie.. this time we can see it without the words COMPLETE RENEWAL all over the face of it like they did on the teaser.

So it's the modified version of what was on Sasuke 23 Navi with a twist.. a rope that is on a rail that moves forward..

Obviously this guy totally bricked..

Speaking of bricks.. someone whiffed on the Circle Slider..

Oh hell they put the Slider Jump variation in the 2nd stage.. LOL

Obviously the guy failed.. but there is a mat they land on before tackling the ridiculous salmon ladder that we saw on the teaser.

The wtf is that new Cliffhanger.. The kids are calling it the Cliffhanger 5.0

And what seems like the last obstacle in the 3rd stage - a variation on Jumping bars with the pipe slider stick..

Definitely tester since it's daytime and a whole bunch of people watching along the edges.

And the new final tower with neon laser beams!!

The mere fact that TBS hasn't done everything in it's power to spoil this means no one got here.. LOL!!

What's the deal with Japanese people not liking Yuuji? That's news to me.

Arsenette said...

Read Ube's comment on the boards about what was in the TV Guides. Apparently people are complaining he had rubber shoes...

Jelena said...

But he DOES look hot, even with the girlish eyebrows! :) BTW, I like the new page design!

Arsenette said...

I'm still tweaking it and I'm a bit nervous about it.. but thanks for liking it! :)

LOL about him still being hot :) I mean.. he is but MAN I'd like it if he'd stop thinning it out.. I mean heck.. Nagano barely has eyebrows himself! We won't even discuss Akiyama.. he's so proud that he does it himself and doesn't have to pay someone LOL

ArtemisFowljr said...

W00T! New design! Congrats :D

I barely could breathe after watching the 10 seconds teaser...imagine my reaction when I saw this!

As somebody said on the boards, it looks like the 4-17 and Shin-Sasuke first stages had a baby lol. The only thing I don't like that much is the Log Grip being back. I'd have prefered the Jumping Spider. Let's hope they did put some kind of Spider Walk somewhere.
Oh and...I don't care 'bout their eyebrows, I still squeak every time I see Nagano, Takeda and Akiyama.
LOL at Shingo's cap v 2.0. Kidding, we know he's going to put the regular one when he runs :P

I don't know what to think of this Yuuji controversy.
He's proved he's good. I don't think the rubber boots helped him passing the three stages before. It's all about different approaches: the veterans use experience, the new kids rely on technique AND equipement. Not that All-Stars never changed shoes...heck.
The UNCLI guys and the STQ'ers work really hard, they deserve some respect.
I'm damn sorry for Yuuji...I admit it, I wish to no end that an All-Star achieved Kanzenseiha, but just think about how he's feeling now. Working that hard for that he's done it, there's people spoiling it, TBS and M9 not doing anything to stop it, even putting up a whole "lost honor" thing...
Seriously, TBS. What. The. F**k.

P.S. I also don't like that they put up a Yuuji vs. Nagano thing...we know they both don't want to be egainst each other.Not in that way.

Can't wait till Sunday! I noticed Shingo's new hat. And the sunglasses on top. I thought those looked like swim goggles, LOL! I'm glad to see the Rolling Log and Jump Hang back. I always liked those. Looks like the first stage is going to be somewhat easier. Looking forward to Sunday!

Celebration Singles said...

What's wrong with rubber shoes? Can't the contestants wear whatever footgear they want?
Looking forward to 25 :-)

Arsenette said...

Updated banner.. thanks guys for being patient.. LOL I was messing with the new width of the blog and ran out of gas this morning.. LOL!!!! Hopefully you like the new pics! (some are old but I don't care LOL)

Oh I agree with you guys that it's ridiculous about the shoes controversy.. TBS and M9 could have squashed it immediately but they seem to go the low road and drag him through the coals for the sake of ratings.. /sigh.. I hope he knows we thought his victory was magnificent and friggin 7-8 years in the making!!! Grats Urushihara and I hope they give him respect!

LOL Tiger on the swim goggles! AT first I thought he was going anime with aviation goggles.. then I stopped the video and did a screenshot and noticed his sunglasses.. Funny.. everything I've ever heard was that no Japanese wears sunglasses (because they don't want to be mistaken for Yakuza).. EVERY All-star has been pictured Sunglasses.. LMFAO!!!!

Welcome back Pitts! I'm excited tooooooooo! Hope to see you all on Sunday at some point!

thebobmaster said...

I'm a bit disgusted with the treatment of Yuuji, to be honest. Yeah, he wore rubber soles to the final stage for better grip. It's called strategy. If he wasn't disqualified for it, why make it a big deal?

And ugh...Yukio is in. Well, at least we don't have to deal with him cackling at his brother failing on an obstacle he couldn't even get to.

To end on a happy, non-ranty note, I love the new background.

TigerOfHaughton said...

I love the new blog design, Elsie! I haven't seen some of those pics. The one of Shingo with his back to the camera, one that I think is from BUG in MIKI, the one of Bunpei doing the arm rings, and a couple that are from the Maguro festival. Where'd you get those. They don't look like screenshots.

Anonymous said...

Wait, rubber shoes? Yuuji is being demonized for wearing sneakers?

thebobmaster said...

Joe...yes, he is. Basically, they are saying that because his sneakers or whatever had a firmer grip on the rope ladder, it gave him an unfair advantage. Because, you know, he totally wasn't in shape for kanzenseiha.

tricia said...

Love your site's new look. The pictures are always crisp and full of eye candy. You know I think Takeda would look good no matter what, even if he shaved his head and wore a sack for a shirt.

Arsenette said...

Hey guys.. crawled out from sleep.. LOL

Tiger yes they are different pics. Those are actual photographs of them rather than screenshots. Some from blogs and others were given to me a long time ago. Just wanted to do something different this time :) I changed it like 10 times and I'm still not happy with it LOL!!! Hard to cram like 3000 pictures in one place.. I always say I'm missing a pic I want :p

LOL Tricia on Takeda :)

I'll be working on the Sasuke 25 blog soon. I will start with Navi though and work my way up. Will take my time again.. don't want to get sick :p

Jelena said...

The suspense is mounting...

Chaki said...

Dang. Guess I'm the only affected. I can't read most of the next. It comes out gray and with the dark blue background, I have to guess... Boo-hoo.

Arsenette said...

I had to change the format again Chaki. The new draft blogger option to change templates doesn't show in any other browser but Firefox.. so I had to remove the picture background I had.. Hope this works now!
