Sasuke 25 - Spoilerific Review - Part 13




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.

We have approached that time again .. All-Star Gawkin'™

Takeda is being particularly.. hmm.. what's the word I'm looking for..

Animated is one... Goofy is another..

I tend to stick with Cocky Takeda™ since this is what's going on here..

Seems that he's worried about the first obstacle

(probably because a small mistake will drop you off the tracks in a blink of an eye)

Then he does his classic Cocky Takeda™ line

It's just a look that he has.. dude does not own a poker face if his life depended on it

Speaking of Salmon Ladder - he cleared it in 24

And the Unstable Bridge

Making it to the 3rd stage again for the umpteenth time.

Takeda proving that 80's colar up is the way to jog in public..

..and DAM that's a lot of steps. (I think this is the Yokoyama Dam near the fire station he works for)

For once I'd like to see him do training without cheesing.. though he doesn't as much as Shingo does.. but that's another story.

Seeing him only with this shirt and not the walking billboard that he had in 24.. is .. refreshing..

Takeda proving he's training for the final

I swear half the fanbase is going to have a coronary if he ever MAKES it to the final..

Btw.. what are these things? I see a lot of them.. they have no roof.. so.. what's the purpose?

LOL why are they asking Shingo's opinion before Takeda's run?

Could be a mixture of comedy.. because these 2 love going at it with bets and trash talking

lalalalalala something about the 3rd stage

Somehow I doubt he's being philosophical.. he's smiling the whole time!

Takeda: "The only thing I'm worried about is the first thing."

Takeda: "I mean, no one's
going to screw up on the Salmon Ladder..."

(and yes that's what he said) See? Classic Cocky Takeda™
Btw.. the translation to this specific picture is "I think it's going to be a fun Second Stage." but the other translation belongs at the other pictures just before Shingo's pic. (thanks chaki for both translation and placement with the screencaps!

Now that last barrage of Takeda pics was brought to you by every woman needing a beer after it.. You know who you are :) mwahahahahha

Ehem.. oh yeah.. TBS Suckitude Chart™ update.. where are we.. it was missing for a while.. blah blah.. oh yeah.. Circle gets the square and less sucking is winning!

All-Star Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 - Representing Gifu 岐阜県

O.. M.. F.. G.. wow.. Classic Cocky Takeda™ glance to his buddies..

Mwahahahah passing popcorn ya'll .. We got Nagano pics :p

I've got chocolate too...

Btw ya'll.. Midoriyama has hot showers and blow dryers.. just.. saying.. check out the hair :p

Meanwhile back to ORANGIE RESCUE PANTSU.. yes.. they called him that.. LOL

And the dismount..

LOL he couldn't go any slower on the Slider Drop.. I'm not even sure if it was possible..

The Salmon Ladder biting back after being trashtalked by him just a few minutes ago

Okay okay.. he's turning around for the jump

Not a problem with the jump

Going up nicely

Just the big rung at the top and he's set for the Unstable bridge


Yeah.. I'm looking at your hands too.. WHY DID YOU LET GO?

WOW.. TBS totally set him up with that interview.. LOL

He was fine here...

But he missed getting to the top and it rammed right back down on the same rung.. and..

He just.. let go.. WOW doesn't this remind you of something??

WTF moment of Sasuke#3

LOL follow Shingo's eyes from the previous picture..

Kanno and Nagano are practically immovable.. Even Akiyama notices..

Nagano has a "you have got to be kidding me" face and Akiyama is the classic.. "uuuuugh".. Shingo can't even bear to look..

He just literally turns all the way around and puts his back to the 2nd Stage and just keeps repeating... Nande..

Then looks over.. wow he's .. pissed?

Meanwhile Yuuji continues to scare dogs all over the world.

Suddenly with all of these weird fails.. Yuuji's confidence is plummeting..

Even HE has to look at the replay jumbo tron to see wtf was that..

Takeda in the midst of embarrassed girly giggling

He cannot BELIEVE he failed the obstacle he said no one would fail..

All-Star Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 - Death by Double Salmon Ladder

And yet another to the SMF kids.. Takeda always fails in the 2nd stage of a "Renewal"
(Edit.. Not only does Takeda always fail on stage 2... the irony is that it's also always the 2nd obstacle. Spider Walk/Salmon Ladder/Double Salmon Ladder) LOL it was more epic than I thought! LOL Thanks Bada.

And keeping MY count alive.. he always fails when he has elaborate red coloring on the back of his shirt..

I'm still shaking my head.. anyway.. this is him going up the salmon ladder..

He went up like he was going to do the top rung but fell short

He's coming back down since he missed it..

Then his brain shut off...

And gravity took over...

And I'm sure his earlier words are haunting him...

Sideview because TBS loves beating a dead horse..

It's just.. wow...

He's almost pleading with his friends about his hands

And just cannot stop laughing

Oh oh.. Nagano is not too pleased...

LMAO!!!!!!!!!! Nagano didn't cry .. he didn't say aww.. he said BAKA

Dude you suck.. wtf was up with that?

And they both laugh..

LOL Takeda (complete with pink towel...) seems to be pleading mercy from his friend..

And Nagano just smiles.. oh if there is a Sasuke 26.. it's going to be a loooooong wait for Takeda..

btw.. WTF is on his arm? First I thought it was dirt.. but.. it's evenly placed.. on BOTH sides too...

Lee getting introspective..

Next is another finalist from Sasuke 24 - Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ

Rock Climbing certificates?

Magically producing child from Navi..
His sisters. Izai イザイ, Honwon ホンウォン and Honzun ホンヅン

Father Tinfon ティンフォン and Mother Chinsun チンスン

Aahahahah Lee's got a bootleg copy of JET's broadcast of Sasuke 21 (because we all know 24 was produced by Golden Sun and I"m seeing JET moniker)
(thanks for the correction SMF guys!)

Seriously TBS/Monster 9.. wtf about the non-response of the DVD Petition? I'd totally buy it!

Lee pumping Iron

And doing weights

Lee Familycam™

TBS Suckitude Chart™ update.. with that last wtf.. X gets the square

Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - Representing Taiwan 台湾

TBS getting carried away with the fire effects

Lee landing after the Slider Plop.. er.. Drop..

Having trouble in the bottom rung..

Quickly recovers and jumps across just fine

Already better than Takeda.. /facepalm because Takeda is right.. no one (else) will screw up the Salmon Ladder...

Anyway Lee is having no issues with the Unstable Bridge..

Takes a couple swings but is just fine

Onwards to the balance tank

And he catches the rope just fine

No problems with the Metal Spin this time

And having just a little trouble with the wall

Okay there

Wow.. having all kinds of troubles with this one..

HE DOESN'T EVEN LIFT IT!!!!!! ... /bangs-head-on-wall THIS is why I hate that one foot gap.. I mean.. what's the point of wall lifting if no one lifts it? Gah I wish Levi never got his damn foot stuck in Sasuke 20 or we'd still have our Wall Lifting back to the good old days when people were FORCED to lift the damn walls to proceed.

I like Lee a lot.. but he should have timed out if he couldn't lift that last wall.

Lee's happy he survived and returned to the 3rd stage again. There's no reason to rant on him. He did the stage the way he was supposed to with the wall that was designed in front of him.

Me too Kanno.. that was one cheap clear..

Shingo's coming up next

And starts up the steps

Yuuji is just as stunned.. (wtf with the guy on the right.. LMAO)

Seriously.. this is not a potshot against Lee. It could have been anyone (including any of the All-Stars) that did that. Fact of the matter is that that wall should not be one damn foot off the ground. He proved my point that this has got to stop. Stop wussifying the stage because you fear lawsuits.. C'mon.. that's just crap. He did not clear that last wall he just went under the gap.

Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - Stage 2 Clear

Wow that hair color just does not suit him

.. and we know that he has vowed not to get a real full time job (like most responsible adults do.. /facepalm) until he wins Sasuke. So instead.. he's doing menial part time jobs like cleaning Pachinko bars.. what a waste of a College education.

Because everyone in Japan has obstacles in their room..

.... I know this is a TBS prepared shot.. but wtf.. you still have to agree to it.. And people wonder why we call him Mr. Sasuke in training..

I can't get the "I'm too sexy" song out of my head...

I'm just too distracted for the I'm too sexy mirror to notice the Sasuke Saddlecloths...

He's.. doing weight in.. front.. of the mirror.. watching... himself.. Please.. make it stop..

Yeah yeah.. he is predicting he's the 3rd winner.. yeah yeah..

Back to the TBS Suckitude Chart™ - Less sucking is breaking away from the pack

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 - Representing Tokyo 東京 Prefecture

Wow. Yuuji's got that PC face down pat.

LOL I can barely see him in the picture. He's on the Slider Drop

Safe landing

Salmon Ladder okay so far

Okay on the jump across as well

And transitioning to the Unstable Bridge

barely hung on but he survived the jump on the Unstable Bridge

A few swings but clear on the Unstable Bridge

Getting ready for the Balance Tank

So far so good

.. oh oh.. spoke too soon...

OH crap he never recovered!

And Ladies and Gentlemen.. here is your poster child for why the Balance Tank is back...

LOL the force of his fall pushed the tank up above the stopper ledge

.. I .. love.. Yuuji.. seriously..

All I could think of when I saw this was .. (warning.. language).. THIS

Oh that's not possibly instilling confidence on Shingo..

He's not only the last All-Star Standing..

He.. hates.. the .. balance.. tank..

Kanno is now dreaming of all the Pachinko Floors he's going to be cleaning...

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 - Death by Balance Tank

And right from get go.. he's starting to lose it.

Had this been Sasuke 24's balance tank he might have survived since he wouldn't be balancing anywhere near as long..

Though to truly Mr. Sasuke fail it.. you have to straddle it Kanno...

Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 is just.. disgusted..

Somehow I smell a field trip to Bunpei's house.. he's got a balance tank there...

Yeah.. he knows he screwed up..

Sweetie.. listen to Arty.. relax... get a job..

Dear Katsu-uhm, Hitoshi...calm down and get your life back, before it's too late.
P.S. change hair color.
There's another theory going on now...whenever Takeda he trashtalks an obstacle, it gets revenge on him. Last time he trashed the Slider Jump, he did clear it but faceplanted into the net while coming down, heh. Humiliation.
LoL...BAKA!!!! Gotta love Nagano even more :P

Chaki said...

The caption under Takeda's trash talk actually reads "I think it's going to be a fun Second Stage." But everyone milked the most out of his "No one's going to screw up the Salmon Ladder" comment!!! He looked embarassed beyond belief. Nice to see him laugh though. He'll be back and better.

1. Thanks chaki for the real translation. :) of course the "false" translation is more fun. :D

2."Kanno is now dreaming of all the Pachinko Floors he's going to be cleaning..." another
L. M. F. A. O. ( btw...did his drama queen girlfriend dumped him? :p )

3. Can't see the words on Lee's certificates from the pics. Apparently he has 1 elder sister & 2 younger sisters. The kid could be his niece.

4. As much as i dislike saying it...i have to agree that Lee "cheated" on the last wall. :(

Arsenette said...

Actually the other translation belong up at the top :) Tehehheeh that's what I get for not knowing Kanji. I'll move the other one up there and add the new one down to it's proper place :) Thanks Chaki for both!

Awee it wasn't a false translation. It was placed under the wrong picture :p
