Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 27.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D (Just remember.. the USA Broadcast of this.. will be.. well.. March, 2012.. Yes.. you read that right.. another 5 months after taping this event back in July... Thanks to everyone for being so patient. Got sick with headaches again this year and am still recovering from an inner ear infection.. yum.. Anyway.. For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE 27 NAVI 1 hour review of Sasuke 27 with fluff pieces of all the major players in the upcoming Sasuke and even a couple of runs that were cut from the official broadcast!. 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.. P.S. I will NOT be covering ANW3 on this blog especially since it aired a couple months ago and I prefer to blog about everyone at once.. not in isolation! Thanks!
UBE'S Sorta-LIVE-BLOG FOR SASUKE 27 IS HERE!
(Massive thanks to Ube for his help on the names in English and Japanese of all the competitors!!)
11 down but only 1 clear.. thanks to the Double Salmon Ladder eating the competitors. I hope the bloodbath doesn't include Ryo.. well okay I'm lying.. I know he passes.. ANW already showed him in the .. okay nevermind.. /sigh
I'm sparing you most of the clips of his fluffpiece as we've seen it in both Navi and his first stage run
This is his mom Miki as we know by now
Second Stage is all dramatically lit
Mom Miki on the far right and wow I didn't recognize Keita. He's hard to see on this pic though
Slider Drop just fine
safe on the gap between the Salmon Ladders if not barely..
okay he straightened it out and is back on track
onwards to the Unstable Bridge
cleared the gap
whoah.. okay he's clear..
safe if not barely on the Balance tank
Getting ready on the metal spin
and he's through!
Cheering section is happy!
Oh.. we know what Ryo will be working on between Sasuke's..
Walls are totally kicking his ass...
Oh boy.. Klaxon blaring and he's got almost no hope to raise that thing..
TBS/M9 this is the reason why you don't put a friggin' foot and a half gap between the wall and the floor! I LOVE Ryo but he couldn't do the wall.. thanks to "PC" we now have a dumbed down obstacle
LOL everyone looks stunned ROFL
and the doors opened and they haven't recalled him so he's through! LOL
Yuuji in shock, Nagano celebrating.. sorta.. LOL and Ryoma happy
Yuuji realizing how friggin' lucky his fellow Cliffer
is to be in the 3rd stage! Had they not changed the walls after Levi got his foot caught in it we know he wouldn't have passed.
We've got 2 clears now.. they'll take it
Meanwhile Ryo celebrating as he is indeed granted a 2nd stage victory.. just like Lee was as well for doing the exact same thing.
owww.. my forearm...
Ryo is a lucky bastard :p
Mom is overwhelmed
This show is sponsored by..
LOL I'm cracking up that the sponsor break has this...
as he runs over to stop the clock as quickly as he can.. sponsored by SoftBank!
Yes.. yes I know.. I know!!!
Okay.. you know you are sleep deprived if you don't read the "L" on that 2nd word the first time around..
DAMMIT.. now I want ice cream.. nom nom nom nom...
TBS is going nuts over how tall he is.. LOL Uhm. TBS?.. Paul ANTHONY Terek
is 190 cm.. wait.. then again they freaked out about his height then too.. LOL nvm.. HOLY CRAP THIS IS A GIANT is what TBS is talking about.. LOL
TBS also reminding you that he has the salmon Ladder at home (even if it's scaring the HELL out of me how it's twisting with his weight on it.. LOL)
and has practiced the balance tank so he shouldn't suck
The Giant has entered the arena
LOL he does look massive on this thing..
Double Salmon Ladder not a problem
Announcer losing his marbles as he jumps across and lands on the 2nd to highest rung!
LOL The Announcer is not the only one losing their marbles.. ahahahhahaha
and I'm sure the designers are closing their eyes hoping this piece of plywood doesn't.. break.. LOL
not a problem over the gap!
LOL Wakky still stunned and Nagano is jacked!
They are amazed at the speed and precision of James!
ahahahahaha Nagano gets up to get a closer look
and to the obstacle he trained on!!
and not a problem with the Balance tank!
and onwards to the Metal Spin!
Clear on the metal spin!
and LOL he's making these things look so small...
Doooooh! Face plant....
ignoring the pain and continuing with the walls...
and last one! THIS is how you do it Ryo.. LOL
Who the hell is James McGrath?
Yay the giant passed!
damn that hurt...
Nagano has developed a new trick when he isn't going to talk.. just drink water! LOL
wow is this the first time they are going to show Brent's full run? LOL Okay! Here we go!
ブレント・ステフェンセン Brent Steffensen
They had freerunning clips and VLC couldn't handle it without turning into a blur.. so Brent helped by standing still.. LOL
TBS reminding us that he passed the Double Salmon Ladder in Sasuke 26
and was a 3rd stage competitor.. even if he was fast forwarded..
Okay back to the present as he passes the Slider Drop
motoring through the Double Salmon Ladder
also lands on the penultimate rung!
onwards to the Unstable Bridge
safely across the gap
Doh! Almost ate it at the balance tank!
managed to jump off it without falling
Whoooooah My God! Strat's a quote machine today.. LOL
LOL I"m still cracking up at Brent's smirk on his official picture..
and lost it on the metal spin..
sorry.. being spoiled so horribly by the NBC coverage is kinda killing my run of the Americans today.. I'm trying my best..
Wakky discussing how the Metal Spin is obliterating the competition as well
which of course is the segway to the next Fast Forward segment..
double FF today as well.. トラヴィス・ファーラニック Travis Furlanic
- Death by Metal Spin
another double FF...
another double FF...
and sorry Ryoma.. they were forced to show you.. LOL but still double FF'ed..
加藤僚馬 Ryouma Katou - Death by Metal Spin
and Yuuji watching his friend...
You mean I have to go after that???
ワッキー was finally able to pass the first stage
and I think I heard that all the way here in the USA when it happened.. LOL
also from his Fluff piece that aired earlier
Oh he's serious.. took off his shirt..
and he's doing well on the Slider Drop..
.. Seems TBS treated him as a refrigerator break.. LOL
anyway back from commercials and.. oh.. he's not good at this at all...
Nagano yelling encouragement as Ryo doesn't seem to know what he's looking at..
Oh he almost fell off ... at least he didn't touch the sides.. he'd be dq'ed..
Nagano just smiles as he knows what's going to happen and sees it in his brain in slow motion..
and the inevitable..
Just doesn't have the strength or technique for this thing
Yeah.. painful isn't it?
ワッキー - Death by Double Salmon Ladder
Yeah.. I guess we all know what we need to train on .. yeah..
meanwhile it's time for the technicolor mohawk
and so far MM has been obliterated today.. (cough.. Rie on the left of the picture)
2nd stage in Sasuke 24 he died on the Metal Spin
hanging on to the pole on the Slider Drop...
okay! Safe on the Double Salmon Ladder!
transition to the Unstable Bridge
managed to get across the gap
lost a lot of time.. but still safe on the Balance Tank
and he hangs on to the Metal Spin this time!
MM losing their marbles as we stare at Rie's butt...
Klaxon blaring and this is the first wall!!
Motoring through (properly I might add...)
Final wall and he lifts it...
drops the wall early and dives for the button which is now at Shingo length™ (ya'll who have seen Shingo's dives with his feet caught under this thing before they Levi'ed the bottom will understand this statement)
and.. did he? Wait.. 00.0.. oh but there is smoke and gates opened!
He's cleared!!!! but by how much?????
HOLY MOSES.. 6 ONE HUNDREDTHS OF A SECOND!!! 0.06!!!!!!!!
LOL NOW he understand how close he got!!!
MM Losing their marbles!
Rie is having kittens!
High fives from Stage 3 competitors!
Naoki: Dude you have to yanking my chain....
oh yeah I spoiled Strat didn't I? Oh well here's his run.. LOL oh and he's NOT 37 TBS....
ライアン・ストラティス Ryan Stratis
Double Salmon Ladder clear
And Strat teaching Ryo how to raise the damn wall correctly
a very pumped ライアン・ストラティス Ryan Stratis
- SECOND STAGE CLEAR!
and another double FF'ed tonight
back to back 3rd stages baby! This coming from a guy who did ANW2 in jeans as a walk on.. KICK ASS!!!! ehem.. ポール・キャゼミア Paul Kasemir
- SECOND STAGE CLEAR
whoot got another American in there!
meanwhile Iketani who is 37.. LOL
Yikes.. he's digresing isn't he? This is actually on the show.. wtf.. anyway.. Naoki Iketani
池谷直樹 - Death by Double Salmon Ladder
Sorry kids.. you should have seen this coming..
and somewhere in the clouds he hears his brother Yukio
laughing his ass off..
TBS being kind and letting me know how many people have actually run...
We got 23 competitors who ran...
and only 6 clears. Up next are the top 4 favorites
lol I don't know why they made such a big deal about my height Travis F. is just as tall
I know :) But I guess since you passed Stage 2 they need a hook? :D Theheeheh at least I'm happy they didn't FF your run.
haha me too! I was so excited to see them show the whole thing! oh and the unstable bridge is some kinda weird fome
.. foam? Freaky.. either way I am sure the poor designers are going "oooh.. craaap." They did that for Paul Terek back in the day.. was funny hearing the stories about that.
When Ryan walks off stage 2, he looks like General Grievous. HaHa!
Loved that 0.06 finish! :)
