.. he's.. giggling.. LOL
Whatever it was.. he was stressed and laughing at the same time..
.. and he's cold.. LOL
Ah yes. In classic TBS fashion.. since Shingo is the last of the All-Stars we get the melodramatic video footage of the All-Stars sucking. Akiyama is first. He was out in the 1st stage.
Nagano faceplanted at the bottom of the septic sludge lake.. also in the first stage
I'm so happy he didn't hurt himself.. but it sure made sense why there was so much mud on his face...
And then this little gem from Takeda in the 2nd stage...
Shingo reminding everyone that obstacles are for Sasuke Otaku's..
and that climbing in public at a gas station is the way to go :p
And because we are in Japan.. they have much better public playgrounds..
Repping Mobil AND Descente.. Shingo's the billboard today
Btw.. this music is bugging me
.. I reaaaaaaally want to know what this is.. There are 2 versions going on in this whole intro (which is uber long btw.. I dont' mind.. but there are 2 versions.. slow and regular
). For the love of everything holy.. someone please figure this one out.. it's a great song!
Btw.. I LOVE how he is the only one that actually wears his wedding ring! Go Shingo! Shingo repping Eiko :)
Back to milking the Crane shots.
TBS Suckitude Chart™ update.. X gets the square - Less sucking still winning.
Last minute nose clean
And the cage is open.. release the hounds...
Gah.. this ain't good...
Doesn't he look like he's reaaaaaaaally not comfortable??
Yep.. take a deep breath Shingo..
Nagano offering support, Takeda still stunned from the eating of crow.. and Akiyama embalmed
Takeda's hair still standing up.. well.. with all that mousse or hair gel..
And he's off!
Gasoline Stando is doing well
And right on the keister too..
Aww he's comforting his butt!!
Jump across is okay...
Doh.. he is further than Takeda at this point..
Phew he straightens out and is on the Unstable Bridge..
Doh. he knocked off his hat with the end of the Unstable Bridge!
Hat in the water! Hat in the water!
Clear jump on the Unstable Bridge...
Well.. almost.. LOL
Okay.. no hat .. But he's already blow that theory.. and it only applies to the 1st stage...
Anyway.. I'm nervous.. I'm wondering when he's going to jump..
LOL that was quick.. off he goes!!
hmm.. he caught the rope very low..
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! W..t.. ......f... SHINGO .. BAKA!!
He failed the rope??????
I hear new announcer continuing in the grand tradition... "All-Stars zenmetsu" which is "All-Stars are completely destroyed" but at least he's not going on and on for half an hour about it
And Nagano clearly is not pleased
And makes sure you know about it..
I can imagine what else is going through his head.. he starts to mumble here..
I'm sure he'll yelling about rushing again..
But clearly.. Shingo + Balance Tank = spectacular.. he's epic on it..
LOL he doesn't look heavily surprised...
Though right now.. he ain't feeling all that hot..
Clearly he needs a prune..
Meanwhile back in Shingoland™
There's a stunned atmosphere going on right now..
Nagano continuing to talk to himself...
And he looks like he aged another 2 years...
Shingo's imitation of a gazelle...
You know someone in Monster 9 was thinking "let's cut the rope.. Shingo's going to miss this"
Well after all that trash talking about how Takeda was an idiot for screwing up the double salmon ladder (yes.. he did.. LOL it was hilarious)
I hear nande....
All-Star Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 - Death by Stupidity.. Death by Rope.. wait that's not right either.. well you can't say.. okay fine.. Death by Balance Tank (/facepalm)
I see the laxatives are working...
Meanwhile he's utterly deflated..
And the stress level just jacked up..
I'm not going to bother with taking a drink.. most of ya'll died of alcohol poisoning in the first stage...
Winner of Sasuke 24
And TBS doing us all a disservice by bringing up that STUPID controversy that isn't even a controversy because they didn't reverse his win because he didn't break any rules....
Apparently Japanese people who are stupid enough to complain about these boots seriously are poor sports. There are no rules against shoes. It's utterly ridiculous TBS wasted airtime to bring this up. If he was not stripped of the title then they need to all just STFU.
Meanwhile at home he has to feel the barrage of stupid because he did nothing wrong. Way to go TBS for doing this. I feel horrible for him. What a way to treat a Champion.
Well for the rest of us around the world who thought he is a worthy champion.. GOOD LUCK YUUJI!!
Uh oh.. TBS Suckitude Chart™ update.. with the amazing feat we just witnessed.. Sucking just tied..
With the Suck chart tied we are down to the last person.. and #100 to boot.
Carefully down the Slider Drop
Ouch.. HE dropped on his keister too!
Salmon Ladder first rungs are fine
Turns around and gets ready for the jump
what the.. what am I looking at?????
He WHAT?!?!?!? I didn't even know that was POSSIBLE!!
Wow that's.. horrendous.. he.. he missed the jump.. but caught one edge of the "stoppers" (or what I call training wheels) on the side of one of the rungs of the salmon ladder.. and now he's dangling helplessly...
Everyone is stunned
First they think he fell...
Now they don't see water splashing.. he's still hanging on!!
Poor STQ/UNCLI group is all confused...
Ryo, Matsuda, Arashida, Hioki, Kawaguchi and Keita are all confused!
Some are looking at various monitors
Some are looking right at Yuuji who's still dangling helplessly!
Poor Matsuda (UNCLI #1 in the middle) is the only one looking at him directly
Meanwhile at the wtf moment #hey I lost count.... 6? of this tournament....
I mean this is utterly unreal!! His heart must be racing a million miles a second..
Awww.. there goes his foot...
OMG that's so heartbreaking...
A clearly stunned and ridiculously unlucky Yuuji just walks away. Announcer is yelling Masaka
As he tries not to burst into tears because that's clearly Kanno's forté
He's just staring at that thing and wondering what on Earth went wrong!?
I haven't seen anything like that.. ever..
Here's the swing..
And the jump across...
Wow.. that's insane...
I swear this thing is going to haunt him...
I can't even imagine what is on his mind right about now.. Outside WHAT AM I DOING HERE?!?!?
top view of the debacle..
one side just totally missed catching on..
and what are the odds of the stopper catching on one side..
I mean seriously.. what are the odds???
漆原裕治 - Death by .. wow.. sorry.. Death by Double Salmon Ladder (somewhere in the background Takeda is burying his face in his hands)
And with Sucking winning.. we are now at the 3rd stage.. wow..
Dang it, Shingo! I couldn't believe it when he did that. I was tense during the first part of his run, but once he cleared the Unstable Bridge, I relaxed. I thought he would clear! When he fell in the water I yelled, and a few seconds later I realized I sound almost exactly like Nagano did when he yelled, except that he yelled louder, lol.
Well, now Shingo knows that he can't do the Balance Tank the way he used to. If they keep the first and second stages the way they were for 25, then Shingo shouldn't have any trouble getting to the third stage in 26. Unless he gets in a hurry and makes a dumb mistake. I hope he doesn't. Good luck in Sasuke 26 Shingo!
Shingo Shingo Shingo...what to do with you?
I whad relaxed as well after the Unstable Bridge; HUGE mistake. Never, EVER relax when Shingo is going. *cough* Half Pipe Attack *cough*
When he fell I yelled "NOOOOOOOOOOOoOoOoOoOooOooooooooooooo..." (seriously, I kept going on for a while lol) and then could only say one word before going cracking up and crying at the same time.
Which is pretty much the Italian translation for BAKA, lol.
As for Yuuji...that was a really, really WTF moment... Rider will explain that better than me.
Kanno I was just stunned silent and found out why Scnoi said "Kanno is Mr. Sasuke #2" a second ago
Shingo for me it was *gasp* "what!"
Yuuji's screw up could pretty much only send one emotion to anyone watching it, shocked confusion. I was confused with my eyes wide open at first but only at first, I started laughing later. But then I realized later our best nominee for passing the Ultimate Cliffhanger was out.
This is a great read, thanks for the effort.
Nagano calling takeda a fool is just brilliant, haha.
In case you were wondering, I am here and I am keenly following your blog. But I am utterly speechless. Utterly...
Hey guys and gals :) Thanks for being patient :) Working on the final parts of Sasuke. Yeah Sasuke 2nd stage was a ridiculous roller coaster filled with real unexpected carnage! Shingo I hope comes back with a vengence even though I had a baaaaaad feeling he was going to do something stupid. That said he went further than I gave him credit for.. I had him dying on the Bridge Jump so I'm happy he made it past the 1st stage again! Arty and Tiger I agree I think we all relaxed and were expecting Shingo to do better once we saw him in the 2nd stage.. then again.. that barrel.. /sigh
Yuuji's took my breath away.. didn't even know that was possible!
Hey Jelena :) Tehehehheeh
