Thanks for the update RC though this thread should be in the ANW forums.
Yes it should, and it would've helped if I had paid more attention to which forum I was posting in. Mistakes happen :/
Not a problem it's not like it was malicious. I appreciate you posting the information at all! I was curious since they said "fall" and January is not.. "fall" Just hit the report to moderators and ask to please move to ANW5 forums.
American Ninja Warrior Special: USA vs Japan Monday, January 13 on NBC (8-10 p.m. ET)
"American Ninja Warrior" presents the first ever international competition as 'Team USA' battles against 'Team Japan' in an action-packed two-hour special, hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja Biamila with Jenn Brown co-hosting. Five top American competitors from “American Ninja Warrior” will compete against five of the most accomplished Japanese contenders from “Sasuke” in a high stakes battle for international dominance. Representing Team U.S.A. are Brian Arnold, Paul Kasemir, James McGrath, Travis Rosen and Brent Steffensen, who will compete against Team Japan’s Kazuma Asa, Hitoshi Kanno, Ryo Matachi, Shingo Yamamoto and two-time “Sasuke” Grand Champion Yuji Urushihara. Contestants will tackle all four stages of the Las Vegas “finals” course in a new head-to-head format that pits members from each team against one another. In the end, the championship trophy and international bragging rights will go to the victors in this inaugural U.S.A. vs. Japan contest. Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja Biamila host and Jenn Brown co-hosts.

Finally I get to see some Japanese in these videos. LOL I mean I know the name of the show (stares at the "A" in the title) but I wanted to see equal rep. I still don't like the announcers and presentation.. Kanno's jewelry is a hobby.. not his job. He's a janitor.
Btw just found out from Inui that the videos are region locked so they can't see them in Japan. Can anyone get a GOOD copy of the NBC promos and put them on YouTube - unless NBC already has them up on their site? I'm sure Kanno would love to see his commercial at the very least. (EDIT: seems the Japan strikes back (that I linked below) was viewable in Japan and Inui was able to retweet that. Hitoshi should have seen it by now). That includes 2 portions in one video which makes me very happy.) Does anyone have an HQ of the "for one night only" video?
P.S. Doing youtube checking now and found a few Japan vs. USA Videos:
Should I link them all? Or put them in a separate video thread?
