  • Taiiku Kai TV #253 – New Date

    The episode that as mentioned in the previous blog was cancelled due to baseball, has been re-announced to air on December 4th. The Navi episode that was to air earlier in the day, however, was not listed for broadcast, leaving it’s status unknown.

  • Ninja Park – 4th Location announced

    Over the last few years former Sasuke and Banzuke Producer Ushio Higuchi has made a lucrative business running theme parks.

    This venture started during the 2000s with his like of “Muscle Park” locations. These have since closed, but following a pilot with popular YouTube channel Fischer’s in 2018, his company GoldEggs has gotten back into the theme park business, offering other services like sports training and Monster box competitions.

    The first park opened in 2019, with a second location opening in 2020.

    It seems these are doing well, as a 3rd location opened in August 2021, even getting promoted on the TBS program “King’s Brunch”.

    This week, it was announced a fourth location will open in Musashiurawa on December 4th, 2021. It seems these parks are doing very well, so hopefully that momentum continues!

  • UPDATE: Taiiku Kai #253

    So, a week ago TBS announced the new episode of Taiiku Kai, but since then a lot of weird things have been happening with it.

    Firstly, they did not release a synopsis, even with less than 48 hours until broadcast. They also deleted the trailer only to reupload a nearly identical one.

    Then this morning, it was removed from the schedule. So what’s going on?

    Right now the finals of the Japan Series is underway. (Japan’s equivalent of the MLB World Series). The current score is 3-2, which means they’re going to a Game 6. As it turns out, TBS owns the broadcast rights for Game 6 of the series and so they were forced to remove Taiiku Kai from the schedule with less than 48 hours notice.

    It is currently unclear if this episode will be skipped, postponed, or released online only. I’ll be sure to update everyone once we have more information.
