Sasuke 25 - Spoilerific Review - Part 12




Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 25.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE 25 NAVI 1 hour review of Sasuke 25 with fluff pieces of all the major players in the upcoming Sasuke!). 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!! Thanks to scnoi and Sasukepedia and the SASUKE データサイト (Data site) for the kanji.

Oooooooooh boy I've totally been there.. (meaning the derailing of an obstacle most people thought was not even failable.. (Cough.. Sasuke 20.. Stick slider)

Now I'm sure he's hoping he doesn't repeat the same performance!

Another returning Finalist from Sasuke 24

The Okuyama family noting that the family that eats together.. stays together.
Wife Sachiko btw

daughter Lilia and son Takaya

Okuyama praying this becomes stock footage as the kids get older and he gets older... that won't be happening anymore.. unless they want to show what a human pancake looks like..

Okuyama also abuses the equipment at his job..

Lilia is just cute as a button isn't she? I see the Takahashi clan all bouncing around back there

The oldest competitor here and still kicking butt! Go old guy!!! LOL

TBS Suckitude Chart™ - sucking is winning!

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 is up next and he represents Yamagata 山形県

Okuyama Familycam™

I'm sure he's reaaaally careful down this thing..

Here's the dismount..

And right on his keister.

and now mounting the Double salmon ladder

But first.. get the crud out of his hands...

No problems so far..

Jump across successful

Up the other side with no issues either

Onwards to the Unstable Bridge

Cleared to the other side of the gap

Taking a couple steps and swings

And crashed on the other side

Balance checks on the Balance tank but otherwise okay

Cleared on the Balance tank.. didn't realize that the stopper was there.. kinda misses the point right? DEFINITELY want the stupid thing LONGER so they have to be forced to actually BALANCE.. ya know?

Metal Spin clear but kinda running out of time...

Ah yes.. I love how he whips the walls up with what seems to be no effort

He really does have a great technique.. so anyone else with that amount of time left would be panicking right now..

Doh.. almost got caught underneath

lightly taps the red button again

Yoshiyuki Okuyama 奥山義行 - Stage 2 Clear!

Okuyama Familycam™ approves

.. he looks .. tired...

Correction.. that stage kicked his butt...

... hurray.. LOL That's body language for utter relief!!

Going after Levi (and ironically because it was Okuyama for which they designed the stoppers at the end of the poles for..)

he was very careful to stay straight

which did actually take some of his speed away

... I see Okuyama didn't read my last blog and brought back the stupid baby hand slaps..

Lilia knows what this is this time and slaps him hard..

Meanwhile.. wife gets kinky and grabs his hand with both of hers!! IN PUBLIC.. THE SCANDAL!!! What would the children think? THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!! lol...

Takaya is still scarred from the public display of affection.. meanwhile oblivious Daddy is only interested in pointing out something on the course...

Oh this is not good.. we got a fast forward...

Well.. sorta.. they didn't do a looooong introduction.. in fact.. no introduction at all..

Next up is Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 our next Finalist from Sasuke 24

and just like a cat.. he lands on his feet

Oh for the love of.. don't screw this up Koji... Now I'm worried since they didn't bother with an intro..

But I guess we shouldn't be since we all know who the heck was on that cliffhanger.. (lalalalallalalalaala)

doing fine on the turn around

Jump across is clean

Unstable bridge mount..

Taking a bunch of swings

Finally jumps across

slowly trying to get to the edge

And he makes it

.. balance tank

wow he's actually on this for almost the whole run

Grabs rope just fine

Takes time to prepare for the Metal Spin

Clear on Metal spin

Lifting the wall

ahahahah he listened to me :)

uh oh.. my back hurts just LOOKING at that..

He's trying to be all butch about...

And decides.. screw it.. he's going under it!

Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 - Stage 2 Clear!

I love his Mom :)

Btw.. Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 Representing Shimane 島根県

Who's ecstatic he didn't botch that at the end

Classic Mom hiding her smile behind a huge sign :)

Amerika #2!!
Brian Orosco ブライアン・オロスコ Representing Amerika アメリカ

TBS reminding you of his Stage 2 performances. Being stopped by the Salmon Ladder in Sasuke 21

And being stopped by the Unstable Bridge (and almost time up) on Sasuke 23

Being a wee bit careful on this now

Straightening out every time he went crooked

Landing safely

A little bit of trouble on the Salmon Ladder

Turning around

Jump successful

Going up on the other side with some speed (what he lacked in 23)

Now onto the obstacle that pwned him in 23

Taking his time balancing.. LMFAO he's bending the planks.. ahahahhaahh


took forever but he made it to the other side

bending on the other side as well.. time.. disappearing...

swinging at the end..

still trying to dismount as we approach the 30 second mark...

FINALLY off this stupid thing

Onwards to the balance tank

and is making up time as he goes

almost falls off the dismount of the Metal Spin!

with the klaxon blaring when he's on the FIRST wall he's now hauling a$$

.. this... is going to be.. close....

Last wall.... he's trying to shove himself underneath it..

WOW THAT Was close! (not Shingo close.. but still.. that was close)

Brian Orosco ブライアン・オロスコ - Stage 2 Clear!

That is one happy camper!

Levi ecstatic! Pink towel and all!

I see Rich is still around

I love you man!

G4 is happy! They got footage of the 3rd stage with someone they want on it!

"Okuyama also abuses the equipment at his job.." Mwahhahhahha.
BTW Lilia is one of the cutest kids I've ever seen :D I love her smile!
I thought they were fast forwarding Koji too..but I didn't bother. Commercials never lie...ehem.
I found Brian's run AMAZING. Besides almost cracking the Unstable Bridge did something unbeliavable at the end. WTF...10 seconds left after clearing the Metal Spin...I still don't know how did he manage do clear. I'm happy for im tho :D
