For those who are unfamiliar with "Navi" it is a 1 hour preview special (examples are here (Sasuke 26 Navi) going back all the way to Sasuke 21 Navi on my blog). It's filled with competitor fluff pieces and even obstacle course construction or revelations. They usually throw in a few spoilers towards the end and of course run whatever current commercial for Sasuke during the broadcast.

I haven't professed my love for Lost in Ube lately have I? LOL Anyway ever since the taping back in July it's been hell trying to wait for Monster 9 to finally announce Sasuke 27. As you remember last month I was given a date of October 3rd as a possible airdate.. now I can say it's official! Ube was able to find the airdate for Sasuke 27 on the Sasuke Mania website.

As I was mentioning the last time I'm still upset that Monster 9 chose to delay the official broadcast of the full tournament on TBS to accommodate the American broadcast of only 10 competitors out of 100... Hopefully since NBC's broadcast was in last place in network and 8th in the night overall including cable.. this nonsense won't continue into future tournaments.. if there are more future tournaments... Anyway.. enough of that negativity.. I'm happy that the broadcast is back to almost 4 hours. The Sasuke 26 broadcast that was segmented and only just over 2 hours was painful to watch since it was horribly cut and badly edited. Maybe with it returning to a size of broadcast we have become accustomed to it will be better edited.
