Although, things have been going my way lately, Gurren Lagann and Rave Master are back on the air. Thank You Sci-Fi.
Considering you like bad american versions I bet you can't wait for june.
Nah, subs are just hard for me to read. I don't really care when they air Ninjafest, there going to air it the next day, when no one else is watching and they don't get good ratings. Besides, if a lot of people watch, than Ninja Warrior(rinse my mouth out with soap) gets better ratings, which normally means more airtime.

I actually have a problem with the subtitles, can someone here honestly tell me that those are translations? Most of G4's text input on the squelching commentator is just blah blah blah blah blah what does he say here? Sometimes the subtitles aren't synced up to what goes on, "Woah, that was close" appears on screen way before Colin Bell nearly loses his grip on the log. What annoys me to the largest extent is the subtitles start talking about the competitor and their experience. It's cool to know these things, but watch Levi as he is on the Devil Steps, the subtitles start talking about his career and how he has a slogan about free running.... AS HE IS ON THE FREAKING DEVIL STEPS. I mean come on there's no way Levi is going to fall when the subtitles are blabbering about his past experience and personal sayings. It's obvious the actual guy isn't talking about that, and it's weird if he did because Levi could fall at any moment during the commentary. So I know the person isn't going to fail when the subtitles start talking about those things.

Wow, g4 actually took some initiative by promoting Ninja Warrior haha. I'd go if I wasn't on the complete opposite side of the country: northeast to southwest. I wonder if some ANC contestants are going to show up though. It seems like it could be a good thing. Hopefully, it's not their "Ninja Killer" course from ANC2 though haha. Although, I guess that would be better than nothing.
Why didn't they do this before ANC4 to determine the winners? G4 has no clue do they? But I suppose for all the ninja warriors over in the US, this is a great chance to show what they are made of and maybe set things up for Sasuke 23.
Why didn't they do this before ANC4 to determine the winners?
Because it was February. I don't care if it was sunny Southern California--it's still February. Also, it costs money to fly people to Los Angeles.
Now, I'm normally Devil's Advocate on these types of deals (as demonstrated above), but this move does confuse me a little. Typically, May is a sweeps period in the US, but I don't know if the revised Digital Transition Date messed that up. I know the initial date caused March to be sweeps this year, but my knowledge is lacking this time.
The alternative explanation, which does have some logic to it, is that the amount of new programming G4 puts out during the summer is sparse at best. By moving the airdate back, not only do they have space for more content during the spring months, they have a choice hunk of ratings-grabbing material for the summer, and honestly, Ninjafest beats a Best of ANC/X-Play show 9 times out of 10.
Now here's my question to all of you, specifically forum-goers and posters: Does it matter? Honestly?
Nah it doesn't matter. My only thing would be that Monster 9 knows now they did nothing in terms of promoting the show with the fans. Or.. they are tired of getting hate mail about G4 (I'm sticking to that theory ).. so G4 is doing an attempt to appease them by doing "something". If this "something" is successful and they believe they can make money out of it.. they will expand on it. You already know this is ultimately about the almighty dollar and not about fandom.
As long as you don't pull a Yasou Aoki, you'll be just fine.
LOL do the pants thing like that guy.. and have video evidence mwahahah ehem..
Actually there would be a possible chance that someone would be able to clear stage one with their pants around their ankles, not Okitani though.
Hop two footed on the steps (harder, but possible). Just lift your legs under and around the log, get a fast hobble (*holds back laughter at the word "Hobble"*) up and a strong two footed jump on the Pole Maze. Jumping spider is tricky, hobble (*chuckles*) as fast you can and get a strong jump and go into the Body Prop, do that across and do the hobble and jump technique on the Halfpipe and Warped Wall, Flying Chute you shouldn't need your legs unless your pants get caught on the stairs. Final Climb you just gotta sack race hop on that long path and climb up that net with mostly your arms..
Granted I'm sure you'd run out of time before finishing the course anyways.. But that would be an awesome sight to see!
