2005 Recap:
A quiet year for Takemura, as he only had one title shot (losing with Anzawa for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship) and coming in 6th of 7 in the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament.  At the beginning of the year he teamed with his MUGA mentor Nishimura, but nothing came of it.  Takemura did not have any notable wins in 2005, and needs to step it up to become a big player in New Japan.

2008 Recap:
TAKEMURA spent much of 2008 in All Japan, wrestling with NOSAWA and MAZADA as part of the faction GURENTAI. In the All Japan Jr. Heavyweight League he picked up wins over Kaz Hayashi and Phil Atlas but came in 2nd in his bracket to barely miss the finals.
