30 Tournaments! Yay!


Didn't think they'd make it for a while, but they have! Sasuke 30 was filmed this month; been reading up on it on Arsenette's blog. Bunpei Shiratori's back for a one-off! Hooray! He was my favourite alongside Nagano in the early days on Challenge. Good to see him back again. It's been too long! Let's hope for a glorious 'swansong' for him. Swan puns have probably been floating around somewhere by now....

After watching as much footage of 29 as I could before TBS mothballed it, all I can say is, I SO hope they got rid of that stupid emoticon obstacle from Stage emoticon , but something tells me they haven't. Apparently TBS tweeted about the production as it was filmed, in a sort of close-to-real-time commentary, across two days of filming. That sounds cool. As Arsenette says, you never got that kind of coverage from Monster 9. Also, as word spread, it is claimed people were tweeting about how long it will take for Katsumi to fail Stage 1. emoticon

In other news, rumour has it that Challenge may well be talking to TBS about getting hold of Sasuke 28 and 29. They answered a tweet saying that they are "in negotiations about Ninja Warrior". *fingers crossed* Jim-ified 28 and 29, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease....

I'm pretty meh about Sasuke this days. Maybe becuase I've not watched it for a few years. I'd probably watch it if Challenge brought the recent competitions but, to be honest, I'm note really bothered either way anymore. All this waiting around puts you off, and I don't watch the original version online becuase I find it a bit dull without Jim. Would still be interesting to see what Challenge do to it when they have to edit it down to half-hour episodes themselves. Or rather, I dread to think after their past performance in doing this. emoticon

Stage 1 and 2 were the same as last year other than stage 1 replaced the net at the end with a wall you just kind of climb, and stage 2 wall lifting is back instead of "passing wall". Stage 3 had an obstacle called drum hopper but everything else was the same.

It was a good comp overall. Stage 1 seems watered down from the comp 18+ era which is a bit sad. I'm glad we get more clears nowadays but it feels like a step back just in terms of scale.

Lots of all stars come back, lots of new stars come back, its a good tournament.

Actually "any new obstacles?" was a bit of a stupid question when I haven't seen it for years anyway!

I'm still confused over the whole All Stars thing. I thought they were all retiring and they made a big deal about one of the previous competitions being their final one ever, but they're still there? emoticon
