As of now were not told exactly how long it was going to be but the preliminary reports Ube found was somewhere around the 3 1/2 hour broadcast range. Since the date at least was correct we can assume that the time frame is about right.  We know already that the show is still being edited so the exact timing won't be known for another couple of weeks when the full schedule comes out.  In the past it has fluctuated in minutes (both starting and ending) so I won't update until the actual schedule comes out (the week of the event).  We also don't know what is the date and time for Sasuke Navi. 



The new tournament is now officially called "Sasuke Rising" (but for all of us it's Sasuke 28 by chronological order).  This is the last tournament for the Sasuke All-Stars.  5 of the 6 Sasuke All-stars were scheduled to compete (Bunpei Shiratori being the only one not competing).  TBS also put out a couple press releases in addition to the Hot news on their international promotions site.  Of note was the confirmation of Ninja Warrior Europe taping next year. (Preliminary locations Scandinavia, Germany, Central Europe, Italy, Spain and France.)

Edit: There were a couple promotions aired on TBS (morning news shows - Similar to our morning news shows like Today/Good Morning America, etc.).  The promotional videos were showcasing the new tournament taped last week and reiterating the premiere on TBS of December 27.

For the international viewers we have no idea if we will ever see this tournament air.  Since G4TV is no longer in existence at the end of this year it is still unclear if Sasuke will ever be shown and subsequently sold worldwide. :(  For those of us who watch this live as usual, a reminder to new viewers, TBS does not do repeats so if you plan on getting up early on Thursday morning start making your plans now since it's a weekday morning for us in the Western Hemisphere. All streaming information will always be handled by SMF and will not be posted on this site.

Sasuke 28 news!

SASUKE RISING OFFICIALLY TAPED!

As was discussed before, Sasuke 28 was FINALLY taping this month in Japan.  Taping took place over the weekend (Sunday, November 18 at Midoriyama Studios).  After a long 16 month wait we finally have a new tournament! 

Sasuke Rising starting line

The new tournament is now officially called "Sasuke Rising" (but for all of us it's Sasuke 28 by chronological order).  This is the last tournament for the Sasuke All-Stars.  5 of the 6 Sasuke All-stars were scheduled to compete (Shiratori being the only one not competing).

The weather cooperated but the previous week and even day before (Saturday) were all soggy and cold with long bouts of rain.  Expect when the broadcast airs this tournament next month there will be a LOT lot of mud.. and everyone in coats!  Still, I'm so happy it finally taped!

Initial information that Lost in Ube has found is an airing on December 27, 2012 on TBS (Japan). Seems to be a 3 1/2 hour show (which IMO is the perfect length..). As the date gets closer and we know the dates of the Navi (preshow) and any other specials (if any) I'll post a blog post just on the airdate information.

For the international viewers we have no idea if we will ever see this tournament air.  Since G4TV is no longer in existence at the end of this year it is still unclear if Sasuke will ever be shown and subsequently sold worldwide. :(

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!
