And we are back! Off to Stage 1 of Sasuke 29!!! Yes! We are going to show runs that will be cut from the broadcast! LOL
And now a pan of the first stage with the loooooong run up
Looks daunting LOL
This is the ^Long Jump ロングジャンプ
Side view of the Long Jump. It's distance is 4.5 meters which is about 14.8 feet (for male competitors) and 3.5 meters which is about 11.4 feet (for female) competitors.
and.. we have a modified *Log Grip ロググリップ
and a side view of the slope
In the past the log only had holes
and even with friggin' BARS.. this dude decides he doesn't need them...
and is thrown off for his stupidity..
Sonic the Hedgehog Time!
This is called the ^Hedgehog ヘッジホッグ
This obstacle rotates as you try to run across
and pray you don't get hung up on the poles and throw you off
like this guy...
so now they do a montage of thrill of victory
and agony of defeat
missed with a "PSYCHE" moment where this guy thought he cleared...
only to fall off the side and into the water..
Awww they are going to cut her? Oh well..
Hey.. Mom.. pat me on the head too?
Anywho for those who didn't remember her, back in 2003 she was in Kunoichi's final!
and off she goes runnin'
Yes! Clear on the Long Jump!
oh.. making love to Sasuke Spray..
taking a long time to set up..
clear though so that's good
Full stop on this too..
working her way through finally..
leaaaaaning but made it through!
complete stop on this too..
She got it!
nooooooo.. lets go.. and foot hits the water..
Mika Watanabe 渡邉美香 - Death by Jump Hang Kai
Oh.. I don't know the daughter's name but they finally showed it!
Her son is so cute too! She's got adorable kids!
she's.. massaging her breasts on television.. yeah lady.. only the Kanto region is seeing this.. on a Sunday afternoon.. probably after church..
so boob lady clears the Long Jump
and is carefully eyeballing the hedgehog
but going a little too slow...
LOL but she's hanging on to dear life!!
omg is she going to try to ride it back up the other side? I have to give her props for trying!
but she falls in. Rika Kawamura 川村りか- Death by Hedgehog
aww are they showing ALL of the ladies during navi??

Aww but she couldn't hang on.

and now we pause to stare at Mr. Sasuke's ass..
and we are back from commercial.. as we contemplated at the meaning of his buttocks.. Mister Sasuke All-Star Katsumi Yamada 山田勝己
as we relive the failure in Sasuke 28
and relived his speech where he retired officially (again)
we see that he came to Sasuke anyway!
but what's this? he's training people! (channeling Ube.. that can't be good)..
So Yamada is training 4 guys.. guess this is the next set of assassins?
WAIT! I CALL FRAUD!!!!!!!!
wait no.. didn't he obliterate his course after Sasuke 28????
oh you liiiiiied...
one of these things is not like the other..
I'm sure the diehard Ninja Warrior fans are freaking out that 3/4 are consuming alcohol right now.. I'm cackling.
weird moment but smart to show how the position of the rolling escargot is ... flat against it.. however.. it's not in this tournament!
Yamada's group, btw, is called "黒虎," or "Black Tiger."
Yousuke Watanabe 渡辺陽介

reminder that before Sasuke 28 TBS sold Ninja Warrior to 157 countries.. now.. not so sure since there isn't a Ninja Warrior version anymore now that Comcast abandoned it..
Japan picks it's team for the Sasuke Asean Open Cup later this year in Malaysia
