Additional Time conversion

For those who are unfamiliar with "Navi" it is a 1 hour preview special (examples are here (Sasuke 26 Navi) going back all the way to Sasuke 21 Navi on my blog). It's filled with competitor fluff pieces and even obstacle course construction or revelations. They usually throw in a few spoilers towards the end and of course run whatever current commercial for Sasuke during the broadcast.


I haven't professed my love for Lost in Ube lately have I? LOL Anyway ever since the taping back in July it's been hell trying to wait for Monster 9 to finally announce Sasuke 27. As you remember last month I was given a date of October 3rd as a possible airdate.. now I can say it's official! Ube was able to find the airdate for Sasuke 27 on the Sasuke Mania website.

Edit 9/13/11 - Ryo Matachi (Cliffer #2) 又地諒 found the official TBS page for Sasuke 27 that was hidden on the website.

Daisuke Naito 内藤大助 (boxer) Former WBC Flyweight Champion
◇Farid 'Cat' Isham モハメド・パリド・イシャム (freerunner) Sasuke Malaysia Winner

David Campbell デイヴィッド・キャンベル (Artist) #1 American Qualifier
Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 - (Shoe salesman) (UNCLI #3) - (Sasuke 24 Kanzenseiha - 3rd ever champion)
Makoto Nagano 長野誠 (Captain of the 28th Konpiramaru) Most comprehensive fisherman Sasuke 17 Kanzenseiha - 2nd ever champion - Sasuke All-Star

As I was mentioning the last time I'm still upset that Monster 9 chose to delay the official broadcast of the full tournament on TBS to accommodate the American broadcast of only 10 competitors out of 100... Hopefully since NBC's broadcast was in last place in network and 8th in the night overall including cable.. this nonsense won't continue into future tournaments.. if there are more future tournaments... Anyway.. enough of that negativity.. I'm happy that the broadcast is back to almost 4 hours. The Sasuke 26 broadcast that was segmented and only just over 2 hours was painful to watch since it was horribly cut and badly edited. Maybe with it returning to a size of broadcast we have become accustomed to it will be better edited.

How can I watch it live?

Arsenette said...

All that stuff is handled on the boards.

Anonymous said...

Arsenette said...

I don't handle that and it's not up yet. It's up to you guys to keep up with stickies when they happen.

maggie_kos said...

I'll be watching - the first time in my life :) And I'm so excited :) I just hope my old poor PC will manage the speed of...Nagano's and other All-Stars' runs.
Keep my fingers crossed for them!!! :)

Arsenette said...

Oh good luck :) I hope those who are watching for the first time enjoy it!

HachiRoku said...

Woot woot. I happen to be here in Osaka, Japan and will be watching Sasuke 27 tonight on the family's new 40" HD TV. We'll also be recording Sasuke 27 to DVD. :)

Should be interesting!!! From the commercial (and my wife's translation) I gather that someone will achieve KANZENSEIHA!

BTW apologies for the Sasuke Central website missing it's main page, our web host had the index.php files hacked and since I am in Japan do not have access to my home pc where the original index.php file is. I'll fix it when I get back.

Arsenette said...
