Intro

SASUKE 28 was the first SASUKE tournament in over a year due to Monster9's bankruptcy and the first since Urushihara Yuuji's second kanzenseiha. It taped in October 2012 and aired on December 27, 2012.

Inui Masato returned as director for his first tournament since SASUKE 14. From Inui's tenure, the black mats from SASUKE 13 to 17 were used and many old obstacles, such as the Godantobi, returned. However, many new obstacles also premiered, most notably the Backstream, SASUKE's first swimming obstacle.

SASUKE 28 was notable as the final competition of the SASUKE All-Stars. Five of the six All-Stars (excluding Shiratori Bunpei who was injured) competed together for the final time, but all five failed the First Stage. After their run, 3 All-Stars (Akiyama Kazuhiko, Yamamoto Shingo, and Yamada Katsumi) announced the retirement from the competition (however, Yamamoto broke his retirement and competed in SASUKE 29 until now, and Yamada competed in SASUKE 30 and 33). In their place, a new group, Shin Sedai, was formed with Urushihara Yuuji, Matachi Ryo, Kanno Hitoshi, and Asa Kazuma. The four New Stars were the last four men standing in this tournament.

Auditions were held in Osaka and Tokyo in September for this tournament. The auditions consisted of a 30 second presentation and a 100 push up contest. While potential competitors were required to attend these auditions, their results were not binding to their invitations, as many veterans of SASUKE returned regardless of their performance.

The First Stage was heavily modified from SASUKE 27 and several classic obstacles were modified while the obstacle count decreased from 9 to 7. The Godantobi returned for its first tournament since SASUKE 11. The Spin Bridge was moved to the third obstacle and the Jump Hang and Soritatsu Kabe were brought back in modified versions as the Jump Hang Kai and the Ni Ren Soritatsu Kabe, resulting in a much shorter and quicker First Stage. In fact, the First Stage had the shortest time limit since SASUKE 17. Despite with shorter, quicker, and seemingly easier First Stage than the previous tournament (with the removal of Jumping Spider and Half Pipe Attack), the results were much worse than in SASUKE 27 as only five people cleared with the Rolling Escargot and Spin Bridge doing most of the damage. It took 37 competitors until someone cleared the Spin Bridge and only one person out of the first 50 competitors, Someya Koki, cleared the Jump Hang Kai. Someya went on to clear the First Stage along with the 4 Shin Sedai members listed above. For the third time in SASUKE history, the last ten people (#91-100) failed.

The Second Stage was also heavily modified as every obstacle was either new or in a modified form from a previous competition. The new Swap Salmon Ladder eliminated Someya Koki, while Matachi Ryo timed out on the new Passing Wall. The Second Stage from this tournament also currently holds the record for the longest time limit of any stage in SASUKE history, as each competitor had 135 seconds to clear the stage. This time limit would thus be drastically reduced to only 90 seconds in the following tournament.

The Third Stage saw a mixture of new and old obstacle return after a long hiatus. The Rumbling Dice, Curtain Cling, and Pipe Slider returned while new obstacles included the Iron Paddler, Vertical Limit, and the newest version of the Cliffhanger, the Crazy Cliffhanger. Similar to SASUKE 18, the three competitors would made it to the Third Stage all failed the Crazy Cliffhanger.
