Information gleaned from SASUKE 26 Navi SASUKE 2011 ナビ

NOTE: Towards the end of this blog post there are some 1st Stage results from Navi. Will they be shown on the regular broadcast? Who knows? But if you really don't want any results until the 2nd, don't scroll all the way down.

They showed the new obstacles. The list (taken from various sources) will go something like this:

ステップスライダー Step Slider
ハザードスイング Hazard Swing
ローリングエスカルゴ Rolling Escargot
ジャンピングスパイダー Jumping Spider
ハーフパイプアタック Half Pipe Attack
そり立つ壁 Soritatsu Kabe
ジャイアントスイング Giant Swing
ターザンロープ Tarzan Rope
ロープラダー Rope Ladder

2nd Stage:
スライダードロップ Slider Drop
ダブルサーモンラダー Double Salmon Ladder
アンステーブルブリッジ Unstable Bridge
バランスタンク Balance Tank
メタルスピン Metal Spin
ウォールリフティング Wall Lifting

3rd Stage:
ルーレットシリンダー Roulette Cylinder
ドアノブグラスパー Doorknob Grasper
サイクリングロード Cycling Road
アルティメットクリフハンガー Ultimate Cliff Hanger
The rest of the stage is unknown at this time.

Oh, and they asked the average person on the street who they thought would be able to complete SASUKE 26.

10. Minowaman ミノワマン
9. Iketani Naoki 池谷直樹
8. Yamamoto Shingo 山本信吾
7. NAOTO
6. Urushihara Yuuji 漆原裕治
5. Okuyama Yoshiyuki 奥山義行
4. Satou Hiromichi 佐藤弘道
3. Miyazaki Daisuke 宮崎大輔
2. Nagano Makoto 長野誠
1. Yamada Katsumi 山田勝己

From this, we can gather that people on the street don't watch SASUKE enough and will just pick whoever they know off of a list.

Also, a special SASUKE shout-out goes to Okada Yuuichi 岡田祐一, who I believe is the guy who maintains 星空パーク in Saitama, where UNCLI and co. go to train sometimes. Yuuji Urushihara was shown training there during Navi.

Akiyama Kazuhiko 秋山和彦, Takeda Toshihiro 竹田敏浩 and Shiratori Bunpei 白鳥文平 of the All-Stars were all marked as 欠場 (ketsujou) which means "unable to appear."

Finally, some 1st Stage runs were shown:

3. Setsu Shobun 薛翔文 1st Stage Failed Rolling Escargot
4. Satou Tomohiro 佐藤友弘 1st Stage Failed Step Slider
5. Miyazawa Kazutaka 宮澤和隆 1st Stage Failed Hazard Swing
16. Suzuki Tomoyuki 鈴木智行 1st Stage Failed Step Slider
46. Harashima Masami 原島雅美 1st Stage Failed Step Slider
Suzuki Ayaka 鈴木彩香 1st Stage Failed Rolling Escargot
Okayasu Tabito 岡安旅人 1st Stage Rolling Escargot
Aoki Yasuo 青木保夫 1st Stage Step Slider

NAOTO at SASUKE 2011 on EXILE魂

On tonight's episode of EXILE魂 we got a peek of EXILE member NAOTO at SASUKE 2011.

Towards the end of the show, they have guest テリー伊藤 (Terry Itou) who is a producer/talent/whathaveyou.
Photobucket


One of the main themes of EXILE魂 is that the members undertake different sorts of "challenges" such as surfboard graphic design and Samoan fire knife dancing. Terry's challenge is, if you haven't guessed, SASUKE.
Photobucket

They will decide who will go on SASUKE via roulette! One option is for all the members. Who will it be?
Photobucket

NAOKI?
Photobucket

USA?
Photobucket


KENCHI?
Photobucket

The least likely option ATSUSHI? (This is because he and member TAKAHIRO are the main singers of the group whereas the other members are mainly dancers and are decidedly more athletic than those two). We'll find out soon!
Photobucket

But first, a song.
Photobucket

Back. Will it really be ATSUSHI?
Photobucket

While that would be where the roulette should stop, it suddenly goes up to NAOTO! I think it was rigged! (Actually, there was probably no way it was going to be any of the original members so it would have never landed on any of them or the "everyone" space.)
Photobucket

NAOTO is suitably perplexed.
Photobucket

While ATSUSHI is relieved.
Photobucket

So NAOTO will have a run at SASUKE 2011!
Photobucket


He's supported by the members of J SOUL BROTHERS who..ah, just look it up.  Photobucket

130 seconds for the 1st Stage!
Photobucket

It's the first obstacle, the ステップスライダー (Step Slider) probably.
Photobucket

Here he goes!
Photobucket

One.
Photobucket

Two.
Photobucket

Three.
Photobucket

Four
Photobucket

Grab the rope!
Photobucket

Right. Like they were really going to show what happens next.
Photobucket

The other guys look happy though. So maybe something happens. Who knows?!
Photobucket

The crowd! Is! There!
Photobucket

SASUKE 2011!
Photobucket

You can kind of get a look at some of 1st Stage here. Not much though.
Photobucket

Although you can see something there at the bottom. 
Photobucket

Finally, here's an animated gif that moves way too fast.
