We have a new Sasuke opening!
Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 28.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D (Just remember.. the USA Broadcast of this.. will be.. well never possibly. I don't know if we will ever see it.. Yes.. you read that right.. Now with the death of G4 official and NBC not giving a damn about Sasuke Japan.. we may never see Sasuke Rising on US television (or any overseas country for that matter unless everyone buys the original 3 1/2 hour broadcast from TBS). For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE Rising (28) NAVI a 1 hour review of Sasuke Rising 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!
(Massive thanks to TBS for posting the names of all 100 competitors! Thanks to Ube for his help on the names in English!!)
Because I can.. no wait.. it's important this time.. LOL
Nagano doing the fanboy and calling out "Lee"!
And to his delight they shake hands!
and they hug!
OMG OMG PDA PDA! What will the children think?
Awww this is so cool! I'm also happy Lee has his own portable fan club this time!
of which of course I'm a resident member but I mean ON the course.. yeah.. that hasn't happened.. sigh..
and because it'll hurt his image he retreats to the safety of his wife and child and.. what towel does he have? I don't think I recognize this one.. must hunt for it..
Taiwan's sole representative.. and has been for years.. Lee En Chi リー・エンチ
and.. HAS THIS GUY EVER SEEN THE SHOW? I mean seriously we all know he's a finalist.. why hire clueless people who have no idea wtf they are paid to watch?
and because I too have the bootleg copy of the now defunct JET versions for a few years ago
wait.. I'm being filmed promoting piracy?? Blame TBS for not selling DVD's. This should be legit!
They show kids on the street that know his name
One of the most consistent competitors out there. And of course TBS nice to not show the WTF MOMENT of Sasuke 27.. yeah let's not mention that.
and because there are so many versions of his name and this one is the one I kept for this long.. Taiwan's Lee En Chi リー・エンチ
Yay for Bruce Lee banner!
and he jumps!
nonononoononono.. he's spinning just about every single ball.. this is not good....
These Comedians know how it feels though.. they've at least been on the show before.
Ohhhh.. he tried to use his legs to his advantage and try to cut the distance by stretching his stride...
but the spinning pulled his feet out of position...
and had no traction whatsoever to be on top of the last spinning ball..
Hey Takeda is a fan.. he's actually giving a damn!
Yamada back to successful lobotomy state.. I mean seriously.. who is NOT a fan of Lee by this point? there's nothing to NOT like he's a class act!
ooooooooooh.. synchronized head throw back! Oh how I missed thee...
LOL Shingo with the "well that was a waste" face while Nagano is going through internal pain
LOL it's so epic that everyone is looking at him now they are so intrigued
Dude you better not be laughing or I'll kick your ass..
Okay okay.. you're not laughing lemme go back to mourning..
Okay now I'm intrigued by the scarf/towel/thing... is it a Christmas theme?
LOL Shingo trying to see around Wakky (there's another camera truck there)
Wakky going ballistic and Shingo has a "daaaaaaaaaamn" face considering THAT is how he failed it last year...
Wakky hoping to find someone to talk to that doesn't shove a mic on his face
They all turn to Nagano's direction as they all start talking about the fail
Wait.. YAMADA is offering advice?? wtf... Even Shingo can't believe it..
meanwhile.. back in the septic sluge.. Poor Lee can't believe his luck
It's not about the speed or if you have long legs..
It's about FOOT placement.. and he kept spinning every single ball by hitting the side of the balls and not on the TOP of the balls
By now he knows he's in serious trouble and tries to lunch towards the mat further compounding the problem by spinning the ball back TOWARDS him..
so all he can do is go straight down..
Sasuke 24 Finalist (yes.. another one) Lee En Chi リー・エンチ - Death by Spin Bridge
Interview chick: wait.. what did he say? Interpreter help?
wow that's a busy scarf.. even for Nagano..
Akiyama: Wait.. where did Shingo go? I know his blur was in that direction..
Shingo: we totally gotta invest in chairs..
Yamada: wait.. I see something..
TBS showing us the lineup of the last few guys they are willing to show on the broadcast - mental warning for those getting cut..
Yamada: Oh look.. presents!
Kanno: Dude.. this is my Descente gear..
Yamada: Wait.. do you mean I don't get presents?
Yuuji: he seriously trying to jack your stuff?
Yamada: Hey you.. they call you Shinya right? I never noticed this before.. you know.. You're dressed in red.. holding a bag.. giving out stuff...
Yuuji: he seriously tried to hork your loot?
Kanno: Screw that I'm putting it on so he can't steal it
Yamada: OMG.. You must be Santa!
Shinya: No presents for you.. back of the line
Yeah.. Yamada's checked out of reality.. a long time ago you just go with the flow bro and ignore it.. he'll forget in about 10 minutes he ever had a conversation with you..
ah let's visit the many faces and fails of Wakky
Sasuke 20 gave us an epic splash on the
Shingo-killer Half Pipe Attack
dumb broad hasn't seen the show either..
anyway.. Sasuke 21's Jumping Spider fail
Sasuke 23's.. okay I really want to smack this girl..
Box girl: Oh.. he succeeded I should give a damn now?
Box girl: aww.. he trains in vain...
Comedian: He went out in public wearing that??
Fire your barber.. he forgot to finish shaving your beard.. get a refund..
Oh yeah.. 84 down 2 clears.. which means if you were any number before that and weren't shown you have been officially CUT! Have a nice day and enjoy the show without you!
Wakky ワッキー who we keep saying is the current champion of Genoijin Sportsman #1 since another Celebrity tourney hasn't been made!
is it getting humid or something? This thing is reaaaaaaaally slow right now..
he literally brings it to a halt.. then jumps off
PERFECT across the balls.. didn't even make a single ball spin.. THIS is how you do this. Skim right on top with perfect foot placement.
aaaaand WOW he actually got it!
wait.. is he going across the outside? Seems like he was going to then changed his mind.
omg he's spent 10 seconds on this thing and he's still only halfway..
over 20 seconds.. this is going to kill him..
It's already over.. he managed to clear the first wall but look at the time..
Gotta give him credit though he's going for it..
or so I thought. I HATE WHEN THEY DO THIS....
wasted almost 10 seconds setting up.. gaaaaaaaaaah
with less than 18 seconds left he's hauling ass to get to the rope..
surprise! You should be used to this by now with TBS..
back from commercials and Wakky has ZERO hope to make this..
Oh.. he's reaching for the top rope..
OMG HE LET GO! I haven't seen this in a looooooong time..
he managed to save himself by having his feet wrapped along the bottom to pull back over but he's got 6 seconds from the middle of the wall!!
and it's over..
She doesn't care.. why keep going back to her?? This is such a waste!
Aww that's a shame..
Wow.. Yamada shaking his head in disgust.. this is big guys.. raw emotion.. he cares..
wait.. is that a mini clock?? I've never seen that before..
TBS showing how he was gunning for that top rung to try to get himself in a better position
but couldn't hang on
he was at least smart enough to try to hang on with his feet so he can pull himself back to the wall
ooooooooh that's gotta suck..
because I can..
Wakky ワッキー - Time up on the Rope Ladder
flanked by STQ heaven (Kanno, Yuuji, Hioki, Kawaguchi and Hashimoto) it's now Ryo's turn to step up to the starting block
Hashimoto shows him the way.. WHY WAS HE DEMOTED??.. uuuuuugh I'm so angry
Anyway.. give it up for an all-UNCLI final! #3 and #2 in da house!
See? She hasn't watched the show.. kick her off the stage!
we know Ryo is a house painter
wait.. what? HE IS UNEMPLOYED TOO? WTF.. we officially have 2 Yamada's now.. Ryo lost his job but is not looking for another one so he has more time for Sasuke.. okay Box girl has my reaction..
GET A JOB!!!!!!!!
For those laughing at the now patented STQ'er technique for the snail.. observe..
he cleared.. so stfu guys..
granted the lucky bastard almost lost it at the end but it's a clear!!!
LOL! He knows he got lucky he fell correctly
Stopping to take his time on this.. it's been eating finalists all day..
And phew.. nice clear
Ryo putting on a clinic. As Ube reminded me... he's doing the cargo net with a cliffhanger grip.
GOD he made that look easy...
easy catch on the lower wall
using the pole only for balance
ZOMG YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW I HATE WHEN THEY DO THIS...
.. but he made it and still has herds of time..
Dude.. if it's stuck just have your weight rip it off the platform like Yuuji did before..
Dude did he waste 10 seconds unhooking the ROPE??
WTF IS HE DOING??
Seriously.. you had a 25 second head start!!!!!!!
he almost lost this!!!
man he almost gave me a heart attack!!!
taking a peek at the results..
and now back to tying shoes
Ahahahahahahha Shingo does not have a poker face!!!
Shingo: WTF IS HE DOING....
Everyone else: yeah he got this..
Takeda reminding me he DOES clap for people even if it's this exaggerated "LOOK AT ME CLAP" maneuver
Akiyama: So.. how much time did he blow screwing around?
Shingo: Too much if you ask me..
Ryo: Holy crap I almost messed this up..
87 down and 3 clears.. albeit barely..
he is lucky he's so proficient with this technique. He cleared it in half the time of everyone else so far
Ryo noticing how much time he wasted lollygagging
I would have been crucified if I blew that lead....
