This month Sasuke 28 (or what is tentatively dubbed "Sasuke Rising") tapes in Japan! Hurray! In the meantime as we wait for the broadcast on TBS in late December for the New Year's holiday season we get to see pics and whatnot of Sasuke training! Up above.. (yes girls.. I'm passing huge tub-fulls of popcorn) we see All Stars Toshihiro Takeda 竹田敏浩 and Shingo Yamamoto 山本進悟 getting ready for the Ibigawa Marathon いびがわマラソン (which ran today Sunday, November 11) in Gifu 岐阜県 (where Takeda lives btw) Prefecture. Seems the Band-Aids help with.. chaffing.. nips.. during the marathon.. yeah.. that's what they say.. still.. it provided for a wonderful opportunity for Takeda and Shingo to go shirtless.. I do have to admit though... Takeda looks hotter with age. Did not expect Takeda to be so ripped. Rare to say that with people as they get older. LOL Anyway just sharing some news before the big day arrives! Thanks to Pittsburgher for posting the picture from Shingo's Facebook!
