Sasuke 31 in July
Taping for Sasuke 31 recently took place at the end of May, and already, it seems like Sasuke producer Inui Masato has finished editing Sasuke 31, making the competition ready for broadcast. So far, TBS hasn’t released any official dates for broadcast other than “July.” When we find out the exact date for the broadcast, we’ll be sure to let you know.

One of the regular Sasuke competitors, Asa Kazuma, has recently married his long time girlfriend Yuki; and it seems that the ceremony took place after Sasuke 31 proper. Also present are Yamamoto Shingo, Urushihara Yuuji, and Masato Inui, among others.
Sasuke Saudi Arabia
During the taping of Sasuke 31 in late May, it would seem that a Saudi prince was present, along with other members of various foreign markets, all with an interest in picking up Sasuke as a potential new show in their respective countries. A few weeks later, it would seem the Saudi royal picked up the show and TBS will be assisting with the production of the show within the Kingdom.
