Sasuke 30 Spoilerific Review - Part 10

Sasuke spoilerific review ;) Warning.. incoming blog of Sasuke 30.. if you don’t want to know.. you have been warned ( ^ . ^ ) (Just remember.. there is NO USA Broadcast of this. NBC has renegotiated out of their contract to show Sasuke on USA soil. Yes.. you read that right.. Now with the death of G4 official and NBC not giving a damn about Sasuke Japan, we will never see Sasuke Rising on US television (or any overseas country for that matter unless everyone buys the original 4 hour broadcast from TBS). For a preview of this event, please see SASUKE 30 NAVI an hour preview of Sasuke Rising with a review of the Sasuke ASEAN Open Cup and fluff pieces of all the major players in the upcoming Sasuke. There were even a couple of runs that were cut from the official broadcast! I'm taking my time on the blogs. I'm still getting cluster headaches during the day so I have to pace myself when I do these blogs.

(Massive thanks to TBS for posting the names of all 100 competitors!  Thanks to Ube for his help on the names in English!!)

  Shinya doing fist pumps with his two daughters.
Eldest daughter Kanon 華音 and second daughter Rinon 莉音

Gah forgot to ask what his wife's name was..
Edit: Tomomi 友美 (Thank you Robb!)

Oh! Fluff piece!  I'm surprised since he was part of the First Stage Clear Chart Photo and Fast forwarded in the Second Stage! LOL

Wow.. he found white collar clothing that fits him with all those muscles? Or did he find a friggin' awesome tailor? LOL  Strange seeing him in this setting since I'm used to him standing practically nekkid kissing his muscles next to Kanno..

Hmm.. Trading company I think (using description from tbs and not this screenshot)
Shinya Kishimoto 岸本真弥

 Any Sasuke Youtube follower worth it's salt knows this backyard course.

Shinya showing he can list a mo-ped.

His backyard course has trained many stars!  And he himself passed the first stage.. even if we didn't see it.. /sigh

Eldest daughter Kanon 華音, wife Tomomi 友美 and second daughter Rinon 莉音 

2 down and 1 clear!

 Shinya Kishimoto 岸本真弥 here to pump... you up!

Daughters Kanon 華音 and Rinon 莉音 along with his pretty wife Tomomi 友美

and here we go!  Rumbling Dice.

Clear on Rumbling Dice

Seems his younger daughter Rinon is totally freaked out right now.

Daddy on the Iron Paddler

Struggling a bit but trying to power through it...

And clear. Seems they can touch the rigging so long as they are done and at the mat?

Rinon wants to look but terrified to look. Awww poor thing.

And he clears the Iron Paddler

Younger Daughter Rinon 莉音 is literally breaking down and weeping. Seems with each step he takes she gets worse and worse. She's so stressed right now.  The camera keeps panning back to her every second it seems.

His turn on the Shoulder Dislocator Drum Hopper.

And he starts.

Clear on the 2nd drum

and the 3rd

And the 4th

And also uses his forward momentum to throw himself from the 5th set of drums

Clear on Drum Hopper

Kanon completely unaffected while Rinon is still trying to recover.

Time for the Crazy Cliffhanger

safe on the 2nd ledge

now on the 3rd getting ready for the jump

and he NAILS it!

Doooooh.. hang on.. seems he jammed his fingers a bit..

Kanon yelling support and Rinon trying not to complete the nervous breakdown.

okay he's cleared. Phew!

Mom is trying to assure her daughters he's fine.

Dad making eye contact

Dad saying he's fine to his family.  Awwwww so cute!

 He's been wringing his hands a lot though...

On the Vertical Limit

Looks a little slow

Doh!!!!!!  He just slipped off!

Fingers probably gone from trying to hang on to the Crazy Cliff.

Oh I was worried about this...

And there she goes. Complete meltdown and she bursts into tears again.

STQ'ers are in shock

As everyone gets up and starts walking around in opposite directions in shock. Camera can't keep up! LOL

Replay of what went wrong.

He just lost his grip and down he went.

 Shinya Kishimoto 岸本真弥 - Death by Vertical Limit


SASUKE 17 FINALIST Shunsuke Nagasaki 長崎峻侑

Explain to me why he was Fast Forwarded THREE TIMES...

I'm so not happy about this.. 

I'm furious this is a Fast Forward..

Was it because he was from the Monster 9 era? Is that it?

Shun's younger brother Takamasa Nagasaki 長崎 剛政

I hope not only Shun comes back but Takamasa gets a chance at the course again.

SASUKE 17 Finalist Shunsuke Nagasaki 長崎峻侑 - Death by Crazy Cliffhanger

Geez.. Lee got the same treatment!  How TBS hates the M9 era competitors..

Sasuke 24 Finalist Lee En Chi リー・エンチ

I'm actually distracted by his long sleeves..

Incredibly consistent Lee has been over the years.

Good tourney for him despite the fail right here.
Lee En Chi リー・エンチ  - Death by Crazy Cliffhanger

Team Taiwan in a million depressions.

 'murica up next in the Fast Forward reel!

I'm assuming fail given that we haven't seen many combo breaks lately.

So nice to see that number so blatantly on his shirt.

 I take sick pleasure seeing it almost glow. LOL TAKE THAT NBC!

Oh.. he had it...

Gah.. yeah another fail on the Cliff.

New Generation holding their breath..

AAAAAnd.. no.. that doesn't give them confidence.

LOL Not a safe Landing Drew! LMFAO

Drew Dreschel ドリュー・ドレッシェル - Death by Crazy Cliffhanger (THE REAL ONE)

ehem.. back to the show. Ryo Matachi 又地諒 (Cliffer #2)

New Generation Star Ryo Matachi 又地諒 (Cliffer #2)

Heh. We saw earlier TBS go to a training camp in Shinya's home. That was on Sunday. THIS was the day before in Yamagata Prefecture (which ironically Jin was at but TBS did everything they could to not record him. LOL).

 LOL Strange seeing him in a suit.. Here is the host and owner of this Sasuke Park. Ryoichi Arashida 嵐田 良一

TBS proving that Ryo has been working hard on doing the wall despite the fan vitriol.

Is this the first we see of Yuuji in a fluff piece all tournament? LMFAO

Awkward TBS induced™ fist pump. Because.. reasons.

6 people down. 1 clear (that's Tomo)

New Generation Star Ryo Matachi 又地諒 (Cliffer #2)

His mother Miki 美樹 looks tired lol

Clear on Rumbling Dice

Getting ready for the Iron Paddler

Easy clear on the Iron Paddler

Now that he knows that it's safe to dismount the Iron Paddler by holding on to the supports now everyone is using it.

His turn at that Drum Hopper

He's light as a feather so he makes this look really easy.

On the 3rd now

 Clearing the 4th

And on the 5th.

Silly grin after clearing the Drum Hopper. He seems pleased. Was he worried about this obstacle in particular?

Last minute comparison of the depth of the ledge.

... for which he has trained half his life..

again.. I expect him to clear.

Probably not a fair thing to say but it's the truth.

Yep. Caught it with zero issues.

His mother Miki 美樹 not even doing much. I mean seriously.. he's a Cliffer.. he CAN'T fail this.  You'd see her freak out if he did! LOL

Asa yelling encouragement during the jump.

He's now cleared this version of the Cliffhanger as well.

Now for the Vertical Limit that took out Shinya.

Again he's the lightest so this helps him greatly on this obstacle.

This is such an awkward/ugly transition.. (not his, just in general how the obstacles are laid out)

And trying to get himself into position...

Phew. Okay on the Green Bar of Safety and time to wait until the Camera Crew reorganizes on the opposite end.

Kanno just turns around and goes to the start line. he's up next. So clear or no clear, he has to be ready to go next.  That's just policy.

Reverse grip

And off he goes!

Do I even want to know why two wrestlers are slapping each other...

And we are back and he's at the end getting ready for the jump

Also perfect landing on the mat!

And another Stage 3 clear!  This one looked easy!

New Generation Star Ryo Matachi 又地諒 (Cliffer #2) - THIRD STAGE CLEAR!

His mother Miki 美樹 really happy

Hey it's Moody and Kobayashi!

 Kanno cheesing but not freaking out (yes they all expected him to clear)

Even a subdued Asa knows he was going to clear after the Crazy Cliff.

Ryo really happy. He's had one hell of a year including major surgery to save his life.

Again he nailed that landing perfectly.

Ah the narcissist..

LOL Ryo looking for some love man.  Some love! SOMEONE HUG ME!

LOL Ryo now looks embarrassed.

Self proclaimed Silver Jewelry accessories designer
New Generation Star Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志

Hitoshi holding son Yuuto 雄仁 while his (now) wife Emiko 笑子 watches.

His actual job is still Janitor.

He's so cute! Their son Yuuto 雄仁 was born a couple months after Sasuke 29. He's 1 years old now.

TBS pulling out the suckitude reel™ - this was his fail in Sasuke 28

and then again in Sasuke 29. Same place.  Crazy Cliffhanger.

Hitoshi waving..

at his wife Emiko 笑子

New Generation Star Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志

on the Rumbling Dice.

Clear on Rumbling Dice

Wife and parents. Familycam™

Time for the Iron Paddler now

a little slow but clearing the Iron Paddler

Wife Emiko 笑子 (who has their sleeping son Yuuto 雄仁 in a carry pouch in front of her) seems to be relieved he cleared it.

Now for the Drum Hopper

on the 2nd set



and 5th. A nice and easy clear.

Ryo yelling that he should change up from Spray to Chalk

But first these commercials!

and we are back!

On the 2nd ledge

On the 3rd ready for the jump

And he has it!

NO!  Down he goes. He literally just ripped off that ledge. Ouch!

Emiko bursts into tears

Ryo and Tomo in complete shock

Ryo horrified. (btw of note.. he felt responsible for that fail for telling him to switch up. That's so sad. It's not his fault Kanno failed and was told it wasn't his fault. Still though, I feel bad for him for thinking that. Only shows how close these guys are to each other.)

Kanno in a million depressions

Wife Emiko 笑子 inconsolable.

All that momentum straight down and off the Cliff.

Wow that is a reaaaaally depressed looking Kanno. Never seen this before.
New Generation Star Hitoshi Kanno 菅野仁志 - Death by Crazy Cliffhanger

Emiko can't stop crying as he's trying to console her.

TBS in a random act of editing has Asa laughing at this point. Anyway he's up next.

New Generation Star Kazuma Asa 朝一眞

TBS cracking out the Suckitude Reel™ again. Just like Kanno he failed the CCH in 28.

and then again in 29.

In a totally overcast day we get a short fluff piece on Asa!

Seems he built one on his property and has been training like crazy to not fail.

Oh for the love of everything holy I hope he's not trying to emulate Yamada.. at least they are showing a vintage photo of Yamada (when he was at his peak).

New Asa girlfriend Yuki Baba 馬場由妃.  Why do I find it weird that they found it necessary to give her full name? Is she supposed to be famous? or are they totally jealous right now? LOL

Okay this entire fluff piece seems weird to me.  I'm not at all knocking that he got a girlfriend. I'm  happy for him.  The TBS fluff piece though was all kinds of creepy..  "oh his fledgling relationship started in the spring".. I mean seriously they NEVER follow someone that closely (especially someone new).  This whole scene looks stalkerish to me.. I mean we are supposed to that on our own.. (giggles) not dedicate a fluff piece! P.S. The photos are totally cute - Asa is definitely a romantic AND he has a photo kissing her! Zomg the children! Hide the children!  There was photo PDA!

Asa being dramatic by inhaling the aura of two handmade luck charms..

before sticking it inside his shoe... To each it's own man.. to each it's own.

ok.  TBS is totally stalking Asa's girlfriend.

8 down, 2 clears (Tomo and Ryo)

New Generation Star Kazuma Asa 朝一眞  psyching himself up.

LOL Asa holding his chest (it's a Japan shirt so it's over the rising sun) then promptly takes off the shirt to go bare chested.

The two guys already waiting in the final hoping Asa joins them.

On the Rumbling Dice

Clear on the Rumbling Dice

This is his sister right?

Checking out the Iron Paddler

Clear on the Iron Paddler

On the Drum Hopper

2nd set




Clear on the Drum Hopper

Asa having giggles talking to Ryo and Tomo right now

Taking a break while camera guys set up again on the other side

now for his nemesis.. 

CLOTHES!  Dirty shirt? I have it!

okay we are back!

Okay.. here we go...

OH! Not even close..

Yuki 由妃 in a million depressions

Somehow.. they knew this was going to happen. You can tell by the body language.

He at least touched it..

but didn't give himself any room to actually grab it.

New Generation Star Kazuma Asa 朝一眞 - Death by Crazy Cliffhanger

Breaking down again in frustration. 3 years in a row failing the same obstacle.

Pretty girl tears.

Consoling each other.

Somber end to Stage 3. We have 2 clears though!  Tomo and Ryo.

Wait.. THEY get to see Shun's run? NO FAIR!!!!!!

Dat Final Ya'll

 PART 11

I am right there with you when it comes to Shunsuke. Seriously...the show won't end if you actually show one of his runs! Triple digesting...are they trying to turn him into Koji Hashimoto?

GTONeko said...

I'd have to say that this is the best version of the 3rd stage personally overall. You've got your "nerve wreckers", your "strength wasters", an all around good balance through and through.

I know more than likely if I even attempted it, I'd be the one schmuck who falls over the iron paddler. X3

Anyways, I really wanted Asa to succeed on the CCH (yeah even I had to shake my head at the one in the ANW qualifiers, but you can't be THAT sadistic. X3 ), but alas, it just wasn't time yet.

Can't wait to see what has to be said about the Final Stage. :3

Unknown said...

Shinya's wife is named Tomomi.

Arsenette said...

LOL Bob I wonder! I mean yeah not since Kouji have we seen such digesting of clears...

GTO LMFAO and condolences (Iron Paddler comment) and yeah I am sad about Asa. I know a lot of competitors that have that "wall" where it's mostly psychological and I'm of the opinion that's Kanno and Asa with the CCH.

Thanks so much Robb! I added the change and found the kanji easily!

Unknown said...

Why do they skip all these guys and show Asa crying or about to cry for like 20% of the episode? Guess you need over the top drama if you want air time. Typical tv.

Arsenette said...

Giggles you must be new to watching Sasuke. ;)
