I love Sasuke Ninja Warrior to death and will defend its glory to the death. There is just something awe-inspiring about the contestants (at least the all stars, or those who train rigorously). They bring back the elegance and nobility of the samurai days, almost.
With that said, I was completely offended when I found this: A Makoto Nagano autographed photo for sale on eBay!
True, the seller has every right to turn a profit on a highly desired collectible. But, this is Makoto Nagano we’re talking about here! He doesn’t play professional ball and get million dollar contracts. He doesn’t care for the publicity. He came to America to meet his fans and leave memorabilia for us to fawn over. The seller clearly does not value such a prized possession. A true Ninja Warrior fan would never have auctioned off the memorabilia, especially only a few months after getting the signature!
Perhaps I have been too critical of our seller. Maybe I’m just jealous that she has his autograph and I don’t.
