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!!)
With David making it 25 clears now.. we are up to our final 2 for the first stage!
and over the years he's gone to various events to get autographs of his favorite Sasuke compeitors like Shunsuke Nagasaki (top), Katsumi Yamada (left) and Makoto Nagano (right)
The famous "Yamada diss" from an episode from Sasuke Maniac back in June, 2008 where they covered the BUG IN MIKI festival
and his historic win in Sasuke 24
Since then he's been wearing the #100 saddlecloth.. a.. very.. heavy number. This from Sasuke 25
where he inexplicably failed in the most unusual way on the Double Salmon Ladder
Then, looking flustered and out of sorts.. he failed again in a peculiar way in Sasuke 26
it was evident to him that he was not coping with the pressure of the #100 saddlecloth well
one of the reasons also was dizziness.. something that he has been trying to overcome
he does cartwheels over and over to try to mimic being dizzy from being spun around and around
especially from the Rolling Escargot
This should look familiar as it's happened before
Remember this from Sasuke 25?
Will he win a second time?
He hopes to be a 2-Time winner
Yuuji hoping going back down to 99 helps deal with the pressure better
and off we go! No problems on the Step Slider
onwards to the dizzy machine...
safely off the Rolling Escargot with less problems than the last time!
LOL This looks like Sasuke Trials line up! Kouji in blue (Wakky doesn't count LOL), Shinya, Tajima, Kanno, Okada, Ryoma, Kawaguchi, Hioki and Ryo!
Lord knows this group has spent days at Okada's house training on his Rolling Escargot
not a problem on the Giant Swing
nice and calm heading to the Jumping Spider
and he clears it
Half Pipe Attack much better already than last time LOL
Still cleared though
nice pace as he gets to the wall
Hioki losing his marbles
Nagano getting ready as he's up next
takes a moment.. checks his heart.. LOL
LOL he skips the last cannonball
plenty of time as he gets to the Tarzan Rope
.. a little low..
with a smile he knows he's totally got this
Yuuji celebrates a clean First Stage clear!
now for the other foot as Takeda notices that Yuuji is done
Yay he passed
okay back to spray.. I need to take my hit..
99 down and LOL 26 clears
Nagano becoming aware of how many have passed
being the 27th tournament..
You know.. if I clear it will be 27 right?
27 for 27 that's cool
sorry.. distracted by Shingo's glowing shoulders.. LOL
I'll make it 27! (cough.. they are still covering the spray so they don't have to pay royalties LOL)
aaaaand Sasuke wipe..
training paid off as Yuuji had no issues with the Rolling Escargot this time
Ooooooh he's happy.. actually.. more relieved than anything
There he goes again talking about how much pressure is on him. I feel bad.. because TBS is not making this easy by perpetuating the Yamada invented rumor that he cheated to win in 24 when obviously he didn't. Had it been illegal not only had he been stripped of the title.. all 5 of the competitors would have been nullified since they all wore the same footwear
LOL he looks like he got caught doing something he shouldn't have!
Not sure what Takeda was talking about though
but there's the announcer in the background talking about America, Japan and how Nagano can make it 27 for 27
Poor guy... he really doesn't like #100 But no one else wears it like he does.. that's for sure ;)
TBS getting all dramatic for Nagano as well LOL
Looks like they updated the boat shots
Allstar - Makoto Nagano
長野誠 - Captain of the 28th Konpiramaru of the Takasui Fleet
ah yes.. I see they are STILL trying to propagate this invented shot.. you do realize this isn't even real right? Superimposed.. yeah.. moving on..
Showing Nagano's domination over the years
and how he can wear the 100 without imploding
He's the 2nd ever Champion
STOCK FOOTAGE.. sorry.. he went to the USA again last year
and this year he traveled again this time to Malaysia to meet fans and be Sasuke's Embassador
And got to meet the Prime Minister of Malaysia!
but of late he's been sucking.. this inexplicable lapse in concentration on Sasuke 24
this Geronimo at 25
and this brain fart in 26
each time his poor son and wife suffered the agony of seeing him fail
Will he return to his winning ways?
as explained in Navi, the Nagano family is in mourning
彌助 Yasuke（Died at age 79）
For those who haven't figured it out.. Nagano just lost his father. This was Yasuke Nagano (pronounced just like Sasuke just replacing the letter S with Y so it was Yas'keh)
Strange seeing this footage now as Nagano came into Sasuke 10 with an air of cockiness
again he brought the family. Something he had been doing since Sasuke 7.
This included his Father Yasuke who also made the trip from Miyazaki prefecture just to cheer his son
but.. we remember what happened in that Sasuke..
Though he proved he did have a sense of humor (and yes those are Nagano's sons next to Grandad)
Paying their respects at the family shrine, Makoto brings his wife Asami 阿紗 美 and and their baby boy Kaiou 塊王 to remember him
remembering the man whom he followed in his footsteps and also became a fisherman
now in the present we preside over the Caning Ritual™ and after a tournament absence.. we get Father Takeda to do the honors..
seems Takeda is getting into it..
and winds really far back...
still going.. LOL
and breaking a few vertebrae...
LOL is he wincing?
.. ow.. that bastard hit me hard for both times didn't he??
Nah I'm good.. You think I'm a whiner like Shingo?
meanwhile this is just way too cute as Kaiou is a playful little thing
Makoto's family - wife Asami 阿紗 美 and their baby boy Kaiou 塊王
he's growing up so fast.. he turned 2 in June (just a month before the official taping of this tournament back in July, 2011)
Mom quit it.. my hair is fine...
meanwhile Nagano bowing to the crowd
crowd giving him his due
in full force with their 2 large Nagano banners
Asami behind the white one on the end
will he make it 27 for 27?
Nagano holding the banner that they had during Trials as the announcer reads it "Thank you for Supporting Japan to you"...
in appreciation for those who kept supporting Japan even after their devastating disaster
take a drink.. Descente on his .. uhm.. yeah..
clear on the Step Slider
Lord knows he knows this as he has been teaching this position all day...
and jumps off before the end
smooth across the Giant Swing
getting ready for the Jumping Spider.. what ate him the last time..
and a clear!
and.. Poor Asami getting ready to see him on the Jumping Spider while his son watches intently
LOL Asami can't watch...
and doing well on the other side of the Jumping Spider.. that ate him a couple tourneys ago...
okay.. phew.. that's out of the way
Takes a second before the Half Pipe Attack..
lol just walking across the log..
takes another moment to make sure he gets this on the first shot..
one handed but he gets it!
slowly going down the ramps to get to the Spin Bridge
He takes a long look at this. Sure he did it years ago when it was the Cannonball Run in Viking.. but he knows this obstacle took out a lot of people including his friend Shingo
Asami also starting to panic
lol she can't watch...
and he's cleared!
Mom.. you are breathing in my ear again...
LOL She waits for the reaction of the crowd to look up again
plenty of time as he grabs the Tarzan Rope from it's holder
eh.. a little low again
LOL this is a little unusual..
celebrating before the end!
calmly hits the red button to stop the timer
YEAH!!!!!!!! I friggin' passed!
crowd is happy
Takasui losing their marbles
Iced up Wakky hooting in approval
Yamada, Lee and Takeda happy
I see Lee got shoe duty this time! LOL
ah there's Shingo :) He's happy too
Aww I see Eiko ecstatic in the back as well (that's Shingo's wife)
LOL Eiko is hooting as well as Asami is beyond relieved
LOL Kaiou must be used to having his Mom dote over him
Aww this is totally kawaiiiii
He seems aware too.. that's really smart for a 2 year old..
Nagano still celebrating at the top
looks like relief as well.. LOL
Yep that's Papa alright!
And that makes 27 clears onwards to the Second Stage in Sasuke 27!
