(PART 1) (PART 2)
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!!)
Oh! I know who this is!
Co-Kunoichi 8 Champion Satomi Kadoi
門井 佐登美 - It's a shame I hated the format of the 8th Kunoichi tournament
門井 佐登美 - hey.. is this the first time we see her full run?
Yay she didn't go out in the first obstacle.. whoot!
a little nervous about this one..
Good! She cleared the Rolling Escargot
Getting ready for the Giant Swing...
Up and overrrrrrrr
Good she cleared!
Taking a moment to get herself ready for the Jumping Spider
And she sticks it!!
.. going.. very.. very.. slowly though...
Yikes.. almost 20 seconds have elapsed..
And taking a moment to size up the Half-Pipe Attack.. a.k.a. "Lady Killer"...
Nope.. still the Lady Killer..
Yeah.. she wasn't even close...
Glad they are quick to getting to people who can't swim very well
PREPARE TO FAST FORWARD!
doing a magic trick
山上暁之進 Akinoshin Yamagami (Teenage magician).. er.. not sure where he failed..
山内悠誠 Shusei Yamauchi (Beach Soccer Player)
Well we know who #2 was...
山本祐揮 Yuuki Yamamoto (Arm wrestling champion)
Strange.. this has to be the first time we see Fast Forwards without results!!
佐藤信一 Shinichi Satou
Apparently he was #16
中和也 Kazuya Naka (Pole dancer)
栗田佳織 Kaori Kurita (Karate champion/Talento)
LOL no she didn't kick his head off.. she knocked the ball (and hat) off his head..
ハイキングウォーキングの松田洋昌 Hiroaki Matsuda of Hiking Walking - Death by Step Slider
権藤博行 Hiroyuki Gondou (Baker) - Death by Rolling Escargot
and 漆原裕次 Yuuji Urushibara
(Driver) .. what? LOL THAT IS HIS NAME!!! - Death by Rolling Escargot
愛川ゆず季 Yuzuki Aikawa (Idol/Pro Wrestler) - Death by Step Slider
寺田広樹 Hiroki Terada (Dance Instructor) ... almost makes it... but takes a step backwards..
and falls into the septic sludge.. - Death by Giant Swing
長坪卓也 Takuya Nagatsubo (Ramen Shop Worker) - Death by Jumping Spider
and sorta relieved again that this picture was not a "major" spoiler :p
Still laughing at how violently Shingo is reacting.. LOL
Doh.. that was fast..
Hooting from the crowd!
Btw thanks to Ube for sitting down and coming up with all the names of the Fast Forwards as well.. that's a lot of work...
Meanwhile I'm told he was a politician at some point..
Now he's a talento.. not much of a stretch.. LOL
And back from commercial... 杉村太蔵 Taizou Sugimura (Former politician turned talento)
and he's got the same problem as well!
杉村太蔵 Taizou Sugimura - Death by dragging his feet.. oh wait.. hang on.. Death by Step Slider
See? I told you they would show him.. Ladies and Gentleman it's NOT OTI! LOL
ティモシー・クームス Timothy Coombs (University of Central Florida Professor/Ebay Auction Winner)
For those who are unfamiliar with wtf I'm talking about.. G$ er.. sorry G4 and TBS teamed up in the Spring (May, 2011) for an auction (using ebay) to benefit the Japanese Red Cross in response to the disaster in the Tohoku Region (Earthquake/Tsunami). TBS in turn would provide the winning bid of the Ninja Warrior Experience with a spot on Sasuke 27.
These were shown to competitors during ANW3.. though much to their chagrin
.. their clothes were the only ones invited back.. This of course was Nagano's wifebeater™, tabi and one of his saddlecloths
Shingo's hat.. of which my husband wants royalties for noticing it's curse.. LOL
and Takeda's orangie pantsu
Needless to say.. fans would have much preferred to see the people wearing them instead...
Either way the auction was announced by G4's Attack of the Show (AOTS) whom also donated items (and even people - they donated Sarah Underwood (Playboy/AOTS) for over $7k!) to the charity event which raised quite a considerable amount of money
This guy paid $3,050 in US Dollars to the benefit
while gaining a spot on Sasuke 27. NO they didn't pay his airfare, accommodations, transportation, etc... Which honestly cut into the potential money that could have been raised for this charity. Either way I'm happy a fan made it to the show and money was 100% donated to the Japanese Red Cross. I'm also happy that TBS showed him since G4 who ran the thing couldn't be bothered to soil ANW3's broadcast on NBC with a fan who won his spot by donating on ebay to a charity... /sigh I'm digressing again aren't I?
Good! For someone so tall I'm happy he didn't brush his feet over the water!
Safe landing on the other side of the Step Slider!
Onwards to the.. uh oh.. this is going to be difficult with his height.. here's the Rolling Escargot
Unfortunately that's what I thought was going to happen :(
ANW guys reacting..
They too wanted him to go a bit further
"It's spinning a lot faster than I thought it would"
"It was a great honor to run the course"
P.S. That was a great interview btw - classy guy
Staying with the Tohoku Region whom Timothy donated money to help restore..
Is a survivor himself..
This is actually 2009 video of his course when he sent his application to TBS to try to get on the show earlier
Then we should know that date by heart.. the date of the Earthquake and then Tsunami that devastated most of the Tohoku region of Japan
Unfortunately the Tsunami hit the region where he lived
Decimating his obstacle course and his home. He trains for Sasuke on the ruins of his now condemned home.
Hidenori Sasaki 佐々木博紀 starts off on the Step Slider
Good. Another safely through the first obstacle
Next is the rolling escargot
Oh.. he's coming off the obstacle as well!
Gah.. he tries to readjust and get back on but the momentum is twisting his body!
Everyone is just as disappointed
Wakky trying to figure out what went wrong
Hidenori Sasaki 佐々木博紀 - Death by Rolling Escargot
Ah! They are back in time! Seems the Muscle Musical
マッスルミュージカル troupe that moved and lived in Las Vegas for 2 years made it back to Japan just in time for Sasuke!
This specific performer is 金子陽祐 Yosuke Kaneko
The banner behind him I assume were the well-wishes of those when they left Vegas?
Cleared the Step Slider
LOL Completely upside down on the Rolling Escargot!
LOL so he just peels off
MM very happy now
Clear on the Giant Swing
Clear on the Jumping Spider!!
Motoring through the stage.. up next is the Half-Pipe Attack
But he made it!
Small break at the Warped Wall...
But not a problem! In one go!
Cannon.. er.. Spin Bridge Clear!
Oh I see Rie! And for the love of all things holy her name is NOT
I think this is the only time we'll see her though.. she did compete I'm told..
also herds of time as he takes on the Tarzan Rope!
and slowly up the Rope Ladder wall. whatever..
a very happy.. wtf.. 65? Wow they are jumping all over the place! LOL
And Muscle Musical has 2 guys already in the 2nd stage!!
LOL is Kawahara going to time out again today??
MM is having a good day so far!
Seems whatever Yamada is telling Nagano.. he doesn't seem too impressed
wait.. Nagano has a blue towel now? How many does he have??? I'm going to have to call him Betty
金子陽祐 Yosuke Kaneko - FIRST STAGE CLEAR!
And as we have 3 people through the first stage.. the pressure and of course inane questions are being thrown on Nagano by TBS..
Dude.. at this rate we'll have friggin' 20 clears..
20? Sure I'll be one of them!
/sigh.. now TBS is making me nostalgic.. for the love of everything holy.. BRING SPORTSMAN #1 BACK!!!!!
Anyway.. this is なかやまきんに君 Kinnikun Nakayama
His record in Sasuke is kinda spotty.. but he did manage to get out of the First stage twice
Sasuke 11 was his best tournament ending with a time up right at the end of the 2nd stage
wait.. isn't that Sky Park? a.k.a. Nagasawa's house???
Those of you might remember Jaguar Mechanic Hidenori Nagasawa
We couldn't quite get the interview
to fruition but we know he competed again today! Will we see his run? will it get cut? or will it be digested?
Seems Kinnikun went to his place to train since it's been eons since he participated in Sasuke
In fact Kinni's last Sasuke was Sasuke 15 back in 2005! Which btw Nagasawa was also a part of
LOL you hear him freak out as he's being turned around in the Rolling Escargot
Meanwhile.. 6 years later.. Kinnijun returns!
Oh hell I give up. I'm convinced they are trying to throw off Sasukepedia at this point.. LOL
damn those shorts are .. uhm. short.. er.. I thought Daisy Dukes
were supposed to be only on hot women? Yeah....
Uhm.. I guess he's wearing a thong?
oh.. he seemed to have stopped midrun and then it turned BACKWARDS.. spitting him out when he was upsidedown
Yeah.. I don't need an HD of this.. unless you are into that sort of thing...
He apparently is?
No.. he's trying to purge that image from his mind..
thanks jams :)
To say he looks disappointed at his return would be a massive understatement
He's having trouble coming up with the words
Nooooooooooooooooo he's in a Fast Forward! NO! NO! NO!!!!!!
awwwwwwwww he lost his footing in the middle of the Spin Bridge!
His daughter Ain 愛夢 is so upset. I see his son Tomu 斗夢 is in shock
Awwwwwwww I wish he did better! Sorry Snowy! At least he didn't get cut though!
中山友貴 Yuuki Nakayama (Racing Car Driver)
Death by Rolling Escargot.. ooooooooh right at the end too..
持永新 Shin Mochinaga (Tokyo University Graduate Student)
and he too falls backwards.. - Death by Giant Swing
awwwww well at least he wasn't cut.. I wish we could have seen his whole run!
Ouch.. - Death by Half-Pipe Attack
She also was sent to Vegas for 2 years and previously she also got to the Half Pipe Attack tying Luci Romberg at the time.
and just like all the women who have gotten up to this obstacle.. they fail! The Lady Killer strikes again!
島田裕代 Hiroyo Shimada - Death by Half-Pipe Attack
I see they were ready with the lifesaver again.. we know she can't swim!
And thus endeth the 2nd Fast Forward.. geeeez these are getting long this time around..
Just to say HI and thank you for your efforts! Pleasure as always!
Aww thanks :) Working on 4 and possibly 5 today :)
Great work, do you think TBS ratings of 12.2 will be enough to make sasuke 28 a reality?
Actually TBS was the one that tweeted 2nd place and 12.6% http://twitter.com/#!/TBS_prosales/status/121196109690445824 I am really really hopeful that it's enough to continue with Sasuke 28! I think it's enough personally but only time will tell. I'm seriously crossing my fingers!
