Good news for everyone. Weird how they're not using the name KUNOICHI.
Hmm.. talking about that last night in chat with someone. The only thing I could think of honestly is that since they had it on the same page as Sasuke (and basically aiming the attention of the Sasuke crowd by sharing the page) it's just a wording thing. Considering that they have not changed the name on their website I doubt they would change it at this stage (since this would be #8).
The OTHER theory I had is that IF they are planning to change the name they are trying to distance themselves from Ayako Miyake's current reign. This I'd find incredibly stupid since most of the competitors we would know would be just about the same as the past 7 years...
Who knows.. if they do plan to say Female Sasuke.. other than looking incredibly stupid.. they might overhaul the course.. to change the name and keep the same course would be idiotic. Let's see if it was just a wording thing to appeal to Sasuke applicants then renamed it to Kunoichi when they have a firm date.
With the use of Female Sasuke I fear its only an invite for women to try out for Sasuke.
No I don't fear that because there is no date for the second competition. Unless they plan to use the main Sasuke Course for women.. (which seems highly unlikely..) I'm sure it's Kunoichi. The most that they would do at this point would be to reinvent the course and change the name itself. I don't see it as using Sasuke 23.
I wouldn't mind seeing Luci on the course. I wonder if she knows about the news, or if someone's going to tell her.
Just got an email back from Luci and no she was not aware of the news on Kunoichi until I emailed her last week. Right now she doesn't know anything other than it has been announced so I'll keep you posted if she hears anything (and of course tells me lol). Keep fingers crossed.

I don't read too much into it since there is a slight language barrier even with someone as strong in English as this person seems to be. I can just imagine it saying "new" as in NOT KUNOICHI 7 Or even Sasuke 23 being NEW since it is.. after all.. new
That being said I do not count out a full course redo just to be different and usher in a new era. They haven't even decided yet wtf it's going to be so I don't read too much into it yet. I'm just happy they announced the stupid thing Personally I think they were getting tired of the emails of "zomg is Kunoichi cancelled?"
Had to post this since the rumor is still going around that it's not Kunoichi but something else entirely.. or even a part of Sasuke.. /sigh.. if someone is going to pick up something from this website I'd wish they'd come back and see the correction as well. But I guess that's too much to ask. Someone please post this on facebook? It's a very large community to be misinformed. (P.S. Am I the ONLY one that actually emails them for clarification?) Why is everyone hung up on the name? So what if they change the course? We don't even know that. It could be something as simple as a way of translating a sentence back into English. It's clear from previous emails that the person writing English is not a native English speaker.. I wish people don't go crazy reading into something that's not there.
