yeah TBS is thinking that and thats why they're getting lower ratings
Why feature two guys that didn't do anything (as far as we know) over a) famous people (the Olympians, the comedians) that get casual and new viewers to watch and b) known commodities that appeal to the long term fan-base (the All-Stars)?
And I've said it before, the four hour program isn't a good idea. It's just fan service at a time when they need new viewers.
If they didn't care about Sasuke, they would stop production and that would be that. Having said that, things aren't loking good and I wouldn't be surprised if it finished in the next 1-2 years with a final "all-stars' special.
I am going to try to find out if I can.. but it's going to be tough. She doesn't remember everyone and now it's been 2 months. While everything was fresh in her mind she gave me what she could. Trying to digest 18 hours of fandom into specifics is really hard LOL
Okie dokie this is an updated list. I still have to finish getting the kanji transfered (er.. I don't have a keyboard that can do it so I'll have to have someone do it for me...).. so it will take me a bit to update the list.
Either way .. yes.. it is confirmed that Okuyama and Washimi were definitely there.
