I went to check the official website that for a year had all of the information on Sasuke and Sasuke related pictures, results and updates. As you can remember it was one year ago, September 7, 2009 when Monster 9 unveiled their new Sasuke website. It has been evident the past several months that very little has gone on in terms of updates on this site. In late August, 2010 there was one update to update the results with pictures for Sasuke 24 and added Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 's picture as the 3rd Champion of Sasuke.


So far it doesn't look good.. As I mentioned in my previous blog - There's a lot more questions though as to the state of Sasuke NOW than it has been even back in April, 2010 when I first wrote an extensive blog about my concerns. Even with M9 pulling the plug on it's mobile ap it's been pretty much downhill with Sasuke in Japan since even before I wrote the blog. With not a single word from TBS or Monster 9 about the state of Sasuke, the indefinite delay of Sasuke, the cancellation of the mobile ap and now the cancellation of the official Sasuke website.. things are not looking good for another Sasuke in Japan.
