So I want to get more into this world of Sasuke cuz I really only watch Sasuke, Kunoichi, ANW, and I've started NWUK. I also watch Kinniku Banzuke, and KuroOvi. However, I want to expand my vocabulary in the Sasuske language. However, I've heard good and bad things about different spinoffs. Please let me know what Sasuke (Not ANW) spinoffs are worth the watch, which ones aren't and which ones I don't even know about. The poll is also to help me out too so please vote. Thanks!
Okay so i narrowed it into 3 : Vietnam, Indonesia, and Kunoichi itself . Vietnam : - The Vietnam Course just like it lost the way of sasuke, super easy stage 1 and stage 2, and the improvement from stage 3 season 2 to season 3 is crazy, that's not the way how a course should evolve - Take a look at Anw 7 -> anw 8 stage 1, its a simple modification but killing ! Plus the format of the international thingy isn't great, it feels weird - But the vietnam spinoff maybe has the most attention in the world due to the foreigner
Indonesia : - i have to say the quality of the course isn't that great like the set up and everything else - But, the course is slightly better than vietnam, it improve in the right way, though the semifinal 1 was too mediocre (yes i know 150 seconds for 5 easy obstacle) - Also it saw a weird mix of anw and also sasuke, the obstacle combination that feels weird but also great - The hype isn't that great as the vietnam but they didn't f*** up the show and make it complicated - the international thingy also much better from vietnam, it gives you the twist (especially how a lot of great ninjas no one reach the tower)
Kunoichi : - i have to say i didn't enjoy much early kunoichi, it just didn't feel like sasuke . Sasuke set up everything then kunoichi is just too different - and for now, the way it packed just not feel right, i know the course is much better for now, but they didn't get the spotlight they deserve - right now kunoichi feels like it was forgotten, the hype wasn't there - but kunoichi also have the xfactor , the exciting feeling to see the result . The weird exciting mix in the course. - but we need more spirit to light up the show
I will be doing mine similar to how defaro did theirs
Vietnam - Internationals are a huge plus - First 2 seasons were pretty good, season 3 was overkill difficulty, season 4 is very bad - Odd rules such as capping stage clears, untimed Stage 2, odd DQs - Season 4 is a huge minus due to production issues. The timer doesn't even work :/
Indonesia - Production of sets looks mediocre, but obstacles are in fact pretty good - Cool and fun spinoff ideas like Operation Midoriyama - International Comp was very fun - Should it continue it should improve further
Malaysia / Singapore - Simple 1 stage course.... but decently well produced. Not much else to say
X Warrior - Cheap looking ANW ripoff sets - Qualifiers were weak - The International Competition was actually fair and quite fun, actually makes my opinion on the series go up a lot.
Challenge the Limit - The most famous bootleg, but it's not a spinoff
Kunoichi - I personally appreciate the experimental format of early seasons - New seasons well produced - Cool, unique obstacles - If you want exactly female SASUKE you'll be disappointed in earlier seasons, but if you let that slide it's very enjoyable.
KuroOvi - Well produced and fun, nice to see some competition for SASUKE. - Urban theme is cool, wish Sasuke had more themes - I'd classify this as more of a VIKING spinoff personally but it's definitely a SASUKE-like - Limited course gets repetitive after >130 episodes
