Sasuke 25 - Spoilerific Review - Part 5




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.

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

Yes! The one with the really awesomely cute Mom!

Shimane 島根県 Prefecture

I know in Navi I said I did it.. but actually she was the one that put the towel up!

Koji's many saddlecloths framed (because TBS made him go through trials so many times.. )

Even more invitations and saddlecloths (btw the ones with no colored Sasuke monikers are from Trials)

If you haven't guessed by now they are holding the family name Hashimoto 橋本

Giving Nagano a run for his money as to who can have thinner eyebrows...

Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 Representing Shimane 島根県

Getting ready for the Jump Hang

And success! He goes up the netting

and careens out of control to the bottom.. LOL

No problems with the Bridge Jump

Gah.. I hate when they do this.. JUST RUN ALREADY.. /sigh.. they do the casual lemme look up and gauge how tall this is stroll..

Yes yes.. get on with it..

Oh.. cool angle.. btw he made the Warped Wall

Dude better not miss this.. he's a friggin' Gymnast.. this is just like vault...

Okay much better :)

LOL he's piking forward as well just like Levi did

Running out of time.. c'mon...

.. he casually walks up to the red button

60 Up.. 5 clears!!

Hashimoto FamilyCam™ and Mom is bouncing like a bobble doll!

Yuuji and Kanno celebrating as well

What's becoming his trademark now - the forward double finger points

And again they bother Nagano to see if he's feeling nervous now that the youngsters are making it. I see Jun is cozying up to him.

.. Nagano made a funny

Shingo feeling the diss is no longer paying attention

Stopping for greatness..

Koji Hashimoto 橋本亘司 - Stage 1 Clear!

Next is the next American - Brian Orosco ブライアン・オロスコ

Levi is trying to do the back slap thing that Nagano does

LOL Brian is ignoring him as if to say "stay away from me son.. I'm in the zone"..

Levi backs away giving the man some space to make love to Sasuke Spray in private (I assume that's Rich in the hoodie)

Because when Japan thinks of the USA they think of Hollywood!

Oh wait.. isn't Brian from San Francisco anyway?

TBS reppin' the newfangled Free Running フリーランニング

TBS reminding you of the more consistent of the Americans having passed the 1st stage twice in a row so far. (Americans did not go to Sasuke 24)

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

No mask this year but he's still pumping himself up

He's been blazing to this point. Finally taking time to slow down

Nope.. he didn't one hand the top bar like PAT did but hey it's still pretty awesome

Slowing down again for the Bridge Jump... this.. you can speed up now Brian..

Okay not a problem.. though I wonder if he bent the swings... LOL

One motion up the wall with no set up. THAT'S how I like Warped Walls :)

Ground to a halt here.. LOL He's not going to miss this sucker

And he doesn't

Plenty of time to go up the rope

And with plenty of time beat the first stage!

69.. wait.. what happened to 61-68? LOL okay okay.. 69 up and 6 clears!

Akiyama at the bottom (gets up right after this pic)

Levi representin'

Shingo leading the applause with high hands while.. hmm.. the red towels are back! Look at Nagano's! Oh.. that can't be good for Takeda.. oh oh.. LOL!!!

Oh I see Takeda already getting ready... he's.. in for it..

LMFAO The All-Stars all checking out the jumbo tron with snickers

K they seem to be watching Brian...

LMFAO Brian pointing at them (I don't think that was on purpose.. I don't think..)

Yeah yeah yeah.. I got it I got it..

I'm the first but .. no pressure.. I'm good..

What is it?

Oh you mean that??

What.. expect me to say a snide comment?

Simple peasant.. I got this..

Here boy.. FETCH MY SHOES...

That's a good boy..

See? I got them all trained to do my bidding...

(LMFAO look at Shingo with a BITE ME face)

Brian saying that he was going for fastest time but he got tired in the middle and just refocused to make sure he passed all the obstacles correctly to finish the stage.

Brian Orosco ブライアン・オロスコ - Stage 1 Clear!

TBS being evil and showing the tower that Takeda has never been on.....

So.. what of it? You got a problem?

I see you.. don't you pity me...

You so smart.. you haven't been there either..

Talk to the hand boy..

LOL I love captioning "cocky" Takeda :) The possibilities are endless!!

Btw we are now in Gifu 岐阜県 Prefecture

Where we bathe nekkid outside.. don't believe me?....

'nuff said.. (cough.. innie..)

By far the funniest stock footage of our favorite firefighter.. doing absolutely nothing but watching other strain to get across a rope bridge.. LOL

Awwww.. I wanted this to be the National poster.. but they had him with his mouth closed for it..

He's been awarded many honors

HEAD TO THE CHOPPAH!!!! (.. sorry.. he's using his work laptop.. snicker.. sorry Ube.. no porn this time.. they showed what he was looking at..)

Seems he's taking notes at home on air rescues? iono. I just work here.. btw.. judging by the noggin' of the kid in front of the TV.. that looks like Reiya (his oldest son)

Soggy tuque from Navi and wtf is with all of this Move Sport gear? LOL It looks like a commercial for Descente!

Reminding you that he's been to the 3rd stage more than anyone else in the history of the tournament

But this is where he failed in 24..

Takeda reminding us that he swaggers while he jogs.. LOL

Seems Brian is still at the top celebrating and Nagano is taking a gander before starting the Sasuke Caning Ritual™

Takeda: Dude.. any day now..

Nagano: You know.. you are seriously pissing me off.. you keep interrupting me when I'm trying to watch the tournament..

btw.. I brought back that towel you liked...

.. remember it now??


.. meep...

(he's literally sucking in air now.. LOL)

Before we go to break.. we remind of the 3 other All-Stars in Attendance today. Mr. Sasuke retired and Bunpei still has a bum knee so Shingo, Nagano and Akiyama are here today.

Aerial shots of the mud.. er.. the course today

.. freshly waxed.. OKAY OKAY people don't care he waxes his eyebrows.. I still think it's funny :p

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

yes.. I still think he's cute too even if he does his eyebrows.. at least he leaves more on than Nagano does.. he barely has any left.. we won't even discuss Akiyama...

LOL Takeda bowing at the crowd.. has he even breathed yet? or did Nagano collapse his lungs with that slap?

I'll get you back bro.. you watch.. your turn is coming up.. I know where you live...

Because Takeda pushes back so much on this to get as far back as possible he practically bends backwards..

he's missed it before.. so he ain't having any of it today.

.. /sigh you'd think by now he'd learn to go down easier.. but nooooo.. he always has to barrel roll down and he gets his body stuck upside down..

Getting set for the Bridge Jump...

FLYING to the Warped Wall and you can almost hear the sound of tires screeching..

LOL!!!!!! He just realized that M9 is messing with his mind by maneuvering the ramp in such a way that he has to do the full run..

K he goes up with no problems

He's now cackling at the site of the springboard

I'm sure he's thinking "dammit I was able to adjust it in Monster Box this year.. wtf.."

Doh.. did he one hand that?

Plenty of time again

LOL he's out of breath and laughing as he casually strolls to the end of the walkway

Stopping the clock

And collapsing again just like he did in Sasuke 24

LOL Takeda is staggering as TBS reminds you that 70 have gone and 7 have cleared

All-Star reaction (LOL the guy with the flotation device on the left of the pic - Go go life savers!)

Akiyama basically saying "I got your shoes right here..."

Nagano yelling encouragement as Shingo doesn't give a crap.. LOL

LOL Shingo is totally not clapping..

Shingo: Okay FINE..
LOL he's clapping with on hand on his KNEE!! ROFL!!!!!!

All-Star Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 keeping up with his tradition of saluting when he clears the first stage (LOL)

He's so tired he's collapsing!!

And of course having an attack of the giggles as well..

Takeda happy he went to Monster Box training.. LOL

Damn.. he almost missed it.. talk about lucky!!

Yep.. one hand.. he still hasn't caught it with his left hand...

Now he curls his fingers with that iron grip..

.. wow.. I can't believe how close he was to totally screwing that up..


OMG... I so almost screwed this up.. just like Sasuke 24's first stage.....

But I made it ya'll!!

Okay.. it's over.. you can go back to what you were doing...

Seriously.. I'm friggin' beat...

Okay.. Fine...

Takeda.. over and out!

Oh.. they are showing him going down the other side..

Seriously.. I'm tired.. wtf..

Aahahahhaahahhah the chick is chasing him and he's having none of it!

Woman.. can't you see I'm exhausted??

YOU do this if you think this is easy (lol look at her face..)

(plicks a piece of whatever got rammed on his orangie pantso)

All-Star Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 - Stage 1 Clear!

Great one, Elsie :D
Shingo kept cracking me up for hours haha. And I love Cocky Takeda as well ;P
Oh and I was totally waiting for the Stopping For Greatness moment , LOL!

VenusHeadTrap said...

What is wrong with Shingo? haha I keep asking for an excuse to call him Dhingo, and this might be my break. Every time he's folding his arms unimpressed or stubborn. You make Takeda seem like such an evil guy 'cause you can really make them say w/e you want them to with your captions :) Time for easter breakfast.

Anonymous said...

1. Did Hashimoto took only 1 attempt at the wall? Yet he finished with only 2.8 seconds left? That was close...

2. Your Takeda's captions are how you made your money. ( understand my english?) i meant that is what you were paid to do...being creatively humourous. :D

TigerOfHaughton said...

Go Takeda! I'm so glad he cleared the first stage! Cocky Takeda, LOL. And LOL at Shingo clapping on his leg. Although that's not really all that strange. A lot of the students in the dojo do that. When we do boxing or Thai Boxing we put hand wraps on and then hold our boxing gloves with one hand. Since we're holding our gloves, we can't clap both hands, so we clap our free hands on our legs. It does look funny when Shingo does that, though, because he stood on one leg and clapped on his knee.

Arsenette said...

Tehehehehe you know me Arty :) I have to add that Stopping for greatness some way or another :)

LOL Takeda makes it easy for me to caption :) He really does have the most expressive face (usually it's complete surprised.. but I digress) making it easy for me to have fun with. I am of course wondering what it was that he said. His facial expressions and mannerisms during that clip were hysterical on their own!

Koji took his time around the course and did waste time setting up for the wall. He also took his time on the last rope wall.

LOL yeah Shingo with his hand slap was funny. I mean we all know and see they are very friendly with each other so it was really easy to laugh at something like this. I do that as well when I have too much crap on my hands and not a free one to clap.
