Sasuke Rising (29) Spoilerific Review

Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 29.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned :D (Just remember.. the USA Broadcast of this.. will be.. well probably never honestly. Yes.. you read that right.. Now with the death of G4 official and NBC not giving a damn about Sasuke Japan (especially after boycotting Sasuke 28 AND Sasuke 29..).. we may never see Sasuke Rising on US television (or any overseas country for that matter unless everyone buys the original 3 hour broadcast from TBS). For a preview of this event.. Please see SASUKE Rising (29) NAVI a half 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!!)

Here we go!  Sasuke One... now almost a full 16 years ago.. A project spin off from Kinniku Banzuke back in 1997.  One could argue that Sasuke became a lot more famous than it's parent show Banzuke.

Now in 157 country.. wait.. there USED to be in 157 countries. You can count USA out of that.. and without "Ninja Warrior" edited we are down to just 1 showing Sasuke now.. and that's Japan.

As stated.. NBC has never shown Sasuke.. only believes ANW is the only show worth airing..
Sasuke Singapore debuted last year and hasn't been heard from since..
Sasuke Malaysia a full 2 years ago and nothing since...
No wait we have heard from them.. now they run a huge event (Sasuke Asean Open Cup) in Malaysia scheduled for November, 2013
In anticipation, Japan held a 2 day audition/trials ..
back in April, 2013
at the Midoriyama Studios
which happens to be a television studio lot...
which is flat as an ironing board.. not a damn mountain...
like the morons in G4 thought..
because they don't know how to read...
but it's funny now because the Japanese make fun of them...
which is probably why we will never see Ninja Warrior again.. oh wait that was Shingo!
So now that the list of all the competitors who ran the Sasuke Trials course was read (even though we haven't seen the competition.. C'mon official Youtube Channel!)
now we get the gag reel featuring this tournament's worst
and awesome feats...
Cue dramatic music!!
Oh HOT Damn.....
what the.. wait.. huh?
wow.. nekkid procession...
to think.. this majesty of topless men are all shorter than me...
sorry.. broke the mystique there didn't I? giggles..
See????  Thanks to Gigarator for that :)
Plenty of popcorn ya'll!
Ooooooooh revamped graphic.. Inui threw a flag behind it! mwahahahahha
and then shattered glass with the Japan flag under there...
Okay I like that!
Oh and again:  For those who continue to be confused by the new name, the name delineates the rise from the Monster 9 Bankruptcy.  Anything past that point is considered to be "Rising" but continues in the same numbering as before. So this tournament is the 29th tournament.
Time to pay the bills while we do a fly by!
.. we have a room... but it has less people.. grumble.. I want a flag though..
Returning from Sasuke 28's "room"
Ms. Pouty Lips and Mr. Car Salesman....
Nana Katase 片瀬那奈 and Jay Kabira 川平慈英 
This time she doesn't have that fugly frilled disaster around her neck.
Returning also is the older woman on the left: Takejo Aki あき竹城 - Actress
With new people (to me of course): Teruyuki Tsuchida 土田晃之 - Actor and Karen Michibata 道端カレン - Actress
Oooooh the guy mentioned Chie Tanabe 田邊 智恵 (which most people know her by her married name Chie Nishimura 西村 智恵 from Kunoichi) who still stands as the ONLY woman ever to to clear Sasuke's first stage (back in Sasuke 2).
aaaaaand we are off!  First stage everyone!
Fly by of first stage!  No snail!
and the addition of the Japanese Flag at the end of the Stage to signify the connection with Sasuke ASEAN Open Cup.

1. Speaking from experience, yes, real big boobs are in-built flotation devices, as well as in-built shelving units. That said, I don't think hers are really big enough for that to matter - I'll have to wait until I get home tonight to watch this and see, but I think they're just big enough for TBS to give the guys some fanservice from that camera angle (since we get more of that from them).

2. Again, TBS, thank you for the Yuuji (and Nagano this time) fanservice. (Kanno and Asa are always nice enough to provide this on their own, so TBS gets no extra props for that).

3. Shinya and Kanno's posing contest: Shinya, the Triple Rangers beat you, so I give the edge to Kanno.

4. Thank you some more, TBS, for giving us many STQer reaction shots, showing us that they have learned well from their All-Stars sempai.

Arsenette said...

LOL You crack me up Jenn :)

1. It was funny.. I asked hubby "real one float right?" He got up to see my computer.. I just glared at him and he glared back going "IT WAS AN INVITATION".. chuckles but I agree.. hers weren't exactly huge.. but since she was there for that purpose they had to milk it for all it was worth.

2. LOL ahahhahahahaha

3. LMFAO :) Glad you enjoyed that.

4. YES!! I was cackling on that and they really do need to show more of that. This way this generation gets the attention from the fans that the All-stars got in the last generation. It's about damn time though..

jenn said...

1. Hers were too small to truly demonstrate that property, so I would say it is still too hard to tell if they were real or not. TBS just got lucky.

3. I think I have you to thank for posting the link to the Triple Rangers video a while back. That said... Shinya, I love you man, but even Ryoma beat you, so your guns can't win.

4. Man, the epic head back poses, patented by the All Stars, now well represented by the STQers. Those really got me.

Arsenette said...

1. Yeah.. though they couldn't get away with trying Mika's since she wasn't whorish doing it LOL

3. Giggles on the Triple Rangers :) I wonder if they will do more videos in the future!

4. I love it! One thing about that group even before they were named a group was that they have always been passionate about Sasuke in their body language.

1. I'm confused about what you found so offensive. A sports bra and shorts are very practical clothes for doing athletic activities (like running obstacle courses), and neither were particularly revealing for what they were. Perhaps she was a fanservice entry, but how is that any different from the comedians and other competitors who were only there for popular appeal?

Arsenette said...

Hello Gamer_2k4!

LOL What I found offensive is that we know why she was invited twice. Last time TBS zoomed up to her boobs during her run in the rolling Escargot and this time she tussled her hair and kept pushing her arms to make them look bigger. It's the "tart" entry that's in every Sasuke. There's always at least 1 and has been like this for the 16 years this show has been on the air. ;) I just like pointing out the obvious.
