Sasuke 27 - Spoilerific Review - Part 8


(PART 1) (PART 2) (PART 3) (PART 4) (PART 5) (PART 6) (PART 7)

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!


(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!

We all know he's a shoe salesman for Haruta Shoes in Tokyo

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

Yuuji having to requalify during Sasuke 22 Trials

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

back to the present as we listen to probably one of the coolest competitor theme songs

Yuuji hoping going back down to 99 helps deal with the pressure better

Leader of the New Stars Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 (or for me (Cliffer #3)

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

first try!

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!

STQ'ers celebrate!

Nagano in the zone with the Sasuke Spray

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

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 (Cliffer #3) - FIRST STAGE CLEAR

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

Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 (Cliffer #3) - FIRST STAGE CLEAR

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

.. meat...

anyway we are back to another cool sounding theme song..

Takasui in full force with their 2 large Nagano banners

Asami behind the white one on the end

Allstar - Makoto Nagano 長野誠 back at 100!

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..

perfect landing..

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

There's Papa!!

Yep that's Papa alright!

Allstar - Makoto Nagano 長野誠 - FIRST STAGE CLEAR!

And that makes 27 clears onwards to the Second Stage in Sasuke 27!
