Intro

The 23rd Competition, official name: SASUKE2009秋 (literally Sasuke 2009 Fall), is the sixth tournament since Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17. This is arguably one of the best and most controversial tournaments to not have a winner. Preliminary trials were held before this tournament. The SASUKE Trials had six representatives and the American Ninja Challenge had ten. Several new obstacles were introduced into the course. In the First Stage, the Jyunidantobi replaced the Rokudantobi and the Curtain Slider replaced the Circle Hammer. However, even with these new obstacles, the results of this tournament were vastly better than any Shin-SASUKE tournament. An amazing 16 people cleared, the most since SASUKE 16. The SASUKE Trials had four of its six representatives clear along with two more former qualifiers, Urushihara Yuuji and Kanno Hitoshi. Of the American Ninja Warrior qualifiers, three cleared. This tournament also proved to be the resurgence of the SASUKE All-Stars. While only four competed, the fewest since all six were named "All-Stars", three of them cleared and all of them got to the Slider Jump. 8 of the last ten people cleared, including 6 straight people from #92 to #97. After 2 and a half years and 5 failed attempts, Yamamoto Shingo finally cleared the First Stage. Nagano Makoto had to run his First Stage attempt twice. In the first run, he made it to the Slider Jump but because of a malfunction, he failed there. He was allowed to run again after a break and cleared with ease.

In the Second Stage, the Unstable Bridge was introduced to replace the Swing Ladder, and the time limit was decreased by ten seconds. Nine people were eliminated in the second stage, including the first seven competitors. Seven were able to clear the Second Stage, including the three remaining SASUKE All-Stars. With the exception of Yamamoto Shingo, the seven had previously attempted Shin-Sasuke's Third Stage. This was the record twelfth time that Takeda Toshihiro made it to the Third Stage.

In the Third Stage, record five people cleared the Shin-Cliffhanger. The Spider Flip saw the elimination of two people and the Gliding Ring eliminated Takahashi Kenji. Kanno Hitoshi was able to beat the Spider Flip that disqualified him last time and went on the clear. Nagano Makoto cleared the Third Stage and advanced to the Final Stage for his fifth time, a record among SASUKE participants.

The time limit in the Final Stage was cut from 45 to 40 seconds. Kanno Hitoshi ran out of time and was pulled up to the platform. Nagano Makoto was able to reach the platform, but he was 0.21 seconds short of the goal when time ran out.
