SASUKE 29 – Broadcast Information


For liveblogging via Twitter, please use #Sasuke29

SASUKE 29, officially SASUKEリイジング2013真夏 (lit., SASUKE Rising 2013 Summer), is set to air on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 7:00pm (19:00) JST, going until 9:54pm (21:54) JST; on TBS in Japan.

SASUKE 29 is the actual competition. All 100 competitors compete and roughly about 75 of the competitors are shown in one way or another. The broadcast shows everyone, including any American competitors. The broadcast is just shy of 3 hours long, but definitely moves quickly. For those who have never seen the original broadcast, it is very different from Ninja Warrior with dramatic music, intros, and suspense built in. Runs are generally shown in order of their number, starting from #1 and moving through the First Stage to #100. The show is being shown in primetime in Japan, which means early morning for the USA and a little bit later in the day for Europe.
