Sasuke 31 has been taped and one of the hosts of this show got to watch the show live and in person! (Hint: It was Arsenette) Join us as we talk about the construction of the Final Stage, the upcoming AnimeNext Panel, Sasuke 31's new obstacles (that we know of) and the objectively best part of Arsenette's trip to Japan. (Hint: It's very tall)

Oh, and we also talked about American Ninja Warrior at length because William thought it would be a good idea to bring that topic up.

All I keep saying when I looked at the photos, especially when I saw you w/Shingo and Yuuji (my second favorite next to Nagano), was "wow". I'm so happy for you. You probably didn't get to see all of the original All-Stars, but I hope you saw some of the others (?Bunpei). I imagine you didn't go out of your way to find Mr. Sasuke/provide him spray. I wish I could have donated more, but it sounds like you didn't come out in debt from the trip. Don't feel pressured at all with posting the rest. That was a whirlwind, it looks like, get well first.

Band, I laughed because soooooo many people have expressed their jealousy. I admit i get jealous when others go to! So I'm totally with ya!

Rod I wish I was able to meet the last 2 All-Stars. I didn't have much time to breathe let alone meet the others. The pace of the trip was reaaaaaally fast and I didn't have a chance to really talk to any of them for any length. Only Yuuji did I have an opportunity to really talk to. The rest were in large scale events crowded by other people also vying for their attention. It was a bit difficult.
