Final Stage Podcast Episode 07: Sasuke 32 Confirmed? Believe it!

Good news everyone! Sasuke director Masato Inui launched a new Sasuke web series and confirmed that Sasuke 32 has been greenlit! The bad news is that the Final Stage Podcast has some new competition. Oh well! I doubt we have much to worry about. In the meantime, join us as we discuss ANW at NYCC, the announcement of Team Ninja Warrior, China vs The World, and the Canadian version of Sasuke that is in no way fake.

Also, William talks about Boruto, meaning we actually do talk about the other Sasuke.

Final Stage Podcast Episode 06: There Can Be Only One! (In America)

I (William) have to be honest; I was not expecting to have this conversation. I thought we were just going to talk about the USA vs The World special and celebrate the fact that anyone around the world can now buy Sasuke 31 merchandise. But not only has USA vs The World not aired yet, but ANW had two people complete its final stage! However, only one person got the cash... and the title of “First American Ninja Warrior”.


We have no choice but to talk about this. Join us as we break down the season finale of ANW 7 where we talk about their version of the Crazy Cliffhanger, the controversial results of the Final Stage and the very messy fallout. Also, we talk about which Americans will be competing on X Warrior, TBS's views on internet streaming and their handling of Amagi Brilliant Park, William's journey to the location of ANW, Tobal 2, Sasuke video games, and who William thinks should star in a hypothetical US version of Takeshi's Castle.

This one was a bit weird, so strap in, folks!

Final Stage Podcast Episode 04: Obstacle Course Obstacle Discussion

With Sasuke 31 set in stone, it's time to reflect and debate on one of the most important parts of Sasuke: the obstacles themselves! Join William and Arsenette as they go through every single obstacle and discuss which obstacles should stay and which should be removed for good. Will our hosts agree on everything? Of course not! That's what makes it fun!

Also, William has an extensive talk about the revival season of BattleBots. Yes, that actually happened and yes, it relates to ANW somehow.

Sasuke 31 has been taped and one of the hosts of this show got to watch the show live and in person! (Hint: It was Arsenette) Join us as we talk about the construction of the Final Stage, the upcoming AnimeNext Panel, Sasuke 31's new obstacles (that we know of) and the objectively best part of Arsenette's trip to Japan. (Hint: It's very tall)

Oh, and we also talked about American Ninja Warrior at length because William thought it would be a good idea to bring that topic up.
