Re: Campaign: Takeshi 2012


I know it sounds crazy but part of me wonders - If challenge are going to make a new series, will they make a completely new set and revamp Takeshi's Castle for the 21st Century? Kind of like what they did with Blockbusters? I mean, it's possible that this could explain the lack of updates and stuff. But on the other hands, it could easily be a death kiss to the program we know and love. I guess the 80's feel (music, clothes etc) would be completely lost if that was the case.

I think it's highly unlikely... but not impossible.

Re: Campaign: Takeshi 2012


There are only four (five if you count the pilot episode) episodes that they've not shown, but they cut enough games out of various other episodes to be able to put together another four episodes of unseen stuff.

There's enough overall to make 8 - 10 new episodes.


Challenge will never create their own new version emoticon
I just wish TBS would see what has been staring them in the face for years - that it'd be worth making a new series for the international sales alone. It doesn't matter about how it'd rate in Japan (air it in the middle of the night if they wanted) but the money they'd make from selling it abroad would more than cover the costs of production. It's not exactly the most expensive show to produce! I imagine that you could make a whole load of episodes for the money it costs to produce one episode of Sasuke for example.

For Sasuke they have to build the entire four courses for each competition, erect them and then take it all down again afterwaerds. With Takeshi, once the games are there, they leave them up and use them over and over again. It's not like they'd take over the studios either. Most of permanent games were built right around the outsides of the feild. There'd still be room to film Sasuke, and whatever else, in the middle.

Maybe this whole worldwide trending thing will be the slap in the face TBS need to realise the potential?.. Although I very much doubt it emoticon

And on the Challenge front: they have all the footage they need, and have done since last year.

Re: Campaign: Takeshi 2012


Actually no.. They built Takeshi's Castle right on the same premesis as Sasuke and used up the entire field to record in one shot. That hasn't changed with Sasuke either. Remember that this lot is heavily used by other companies so it has to be down so they can sell the time. It would be cost prohibitive if they can't lease out the land by keeping that stuff up which is why it's torn down within 24 hours after it is recorded. It also takes a long time to build so you have to put in the 10+ days it takes to build that stuff. Sasuke at it's FASTEST build was 10 days.. it's usually closer to 14 for that one.

Either way I've been asking for a revival of the show.. dunno if anyone else would ever put that but feel free to bombard them with the idea to see if it sticks emoticon Higashi is no longer Miyazaki's Governor so it's not like he's not free to do the show again emoticon

Re: Campaign: Takeshi 2012


The main and most popular Takeshi games (except High Rollers and Wipe Out) were all built around the edges. Sasuke doesn't go right up to the edges apart from at the end of Stage One. However, the beginning of Stage One is near the middle of the field, so if they moved it backwards there'd be plenty of room. Just cover all the games up when not in use and there's no reason the space can't be rented out. Theynmanaged before!

All the other games can just be brought in when filming.

I really hope so! Especially since I saw many Japanese people speaking about Takeshi Castle lately.
