Sasuke related news - Updates, Vlogs, Nico Nico #6

10 days to go! - Link to campaign

The final 10 days are upon us!  Thank you to the contributions! I'm at 30% but with 10 days to go I'm getting worried.  This year has been difficult raising money with the economy not doing so good. I am excited though that there are more options for perks this year like Autographed photos of the All-Stars and 3/4 Champions and limited edition Sasuke 32 T'shirts, etc..  I blogged about that earlier showing what some of this stuff looks like.

Edit: I totally forgot to post this video!  It is Part 6 of the Rambling Rican in Japan series!  I did a short video using mostly footage from friends to compliment the small amount I had of my own. I hope you like it! The video was posted on my personal channel of my trip to Japan.  For those counting at home, this is the 6th video from the series. This video features Saturday and Sunday - Sasuke 31!  Thanks to to Perry Oosterlee from the Netherlands for allowing me to use his videos again! Previous videos include, Part 5 was the rest of the day of that Thursday (same day we saw Yuuji) and onto Friday (the day before Sasuke) where we had to change hotels from Odaiba to a town called Machida, Part 4 was the rest of my Haruta Trip to see the 2-Time Grand Champion Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 (Cliffer #3) at work. In Part 3 in the series, Yuuji took us out to eat lunch and sign autographs.  In Part 2, I posted a room tour of my first (of 3) hotel stays.  Part 1 was the flight over to Japan on YouTube that all of you made possible! I don't care if I sound like a broken record, but THANK YOU so much for your support! I could not have gone to Japan without you! Hope you enjoy the video! ♥

Rambling Rican Vlog - IndieGogo and Sasuke Updates - Direct link

The latest vlog I spent a lot of time going through questions. If you have more just let me know!  I also added the most recent Sasuke news that wasn't already covered during the Final Stage Podcast.

Final Stage Podcast - Episode 12

As I mentioned before, I migrated the Final Stage Podcast to it's own website!  Episode 12 is now up and will be housed there on it's own site entirely.  Pop over there and listen to the latest podcast! It's up on iTunes, Youtube, Podbean and now on it's own page!

International competitors registered for Sasuke Vietnam - Season 2

As I mentioned before, Sasuke Vietnam Season 2 has a friendly competition between Team Japan, Team Vietnam and Team International which is coming up this week!  Stage 1 for the internationals is this Monday!

Unofficial Sasuke Update Show #6

Online Streaming Service Nico Nico (DIRECT LINK)
Saturday, April 16, 2016 - 20:00 (7:30 PM - Japan) JST

I'm happy that the Update shows are going on at a timely basis!  Previous shows (March, February, January, December and October).  November was the big month where he and Ryo were building Sasuke Indonesia and produced 13 behind the scenes videos on Nico Nico. There was an announcement this week on their new Twitter account that the next one is approaching fast. The name of the Twitter handle is S ura channel (which means Sasuke back channel).

It is almost time!  As is tradition here on Rambling Rican, I'm writing about the Maguro Festival again!  This year didn't disappoint with the amount of photos I was able to get within just a day or two! This year we broke the record again in photos and I didn't even post all that was available!! Thanks everyone for being patient.  For those who aren't familiar with this at all, the 25th Annual Maguro Festival 第25回串木野まぐろフェスティバル took place in Kagoshima Prefecture on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday May 1, 2016 in the city of Ichiki-Kushikino. This of course happens during Golden Week in Japan.

Aww. Good luck, and don't give up, 10 days is still a lot of days left to get the goal. If I was able to, I would donate, however I can't. Still, don't give up. There's still some time left.
