Like HBK was Utami is too valuable so Momo is the one that's gonna be forced to wrestle in a hog pen match and then she's gonna get squashed by Saya Kamitani.

How dare you compare Tall Saya to Ultimate Warrior?

She's gonna get squashed by Unagi.

Well wrestling ability-wise that's an apt comparison but booking-wise Unagi's the anti-Ultimate Warrior. She loses every match and looks bad in every match.

Continuing my dive into the TJPW archives and I've just got to the PPV show from last May. I know it's been said before a lot, but Miyu Yamashita might be the coolest person who has ever lived.

Kamiyu was an outspoken supporter of the BLM movement, because in her own words, black people were much nicer to her as a foreigner in American High School than white people were. teenager in Ohio. They stuck up for her, and protected her from bullying.

She also likes to poo poo post on twitter at 4am, which is also very cool.

She hasn't done it in a long time, but way back when she was a low card chickenshit heel, she used to catch opponents off guard by halting the match and shouting, in perfect English, "Don't touch my loving hair!" The first time I saw it I had no idea beforehand that she'd lived in America and spoke English. It remains, to this day, the hardest I've ever popped at wrestling that I wasn't attending live.

Pretty much the entire TJPW roster all really stepped up around 2018-2019 and Kamiyu was still the clear most improved over that span. It's been really awesome watching her develop.

Oh hey, Stardom ring announcer Yurie Kozakai is live tweeting an anime she working on.....oh she's apparently one of the leads....let's see what it's about


quote:

One rainy day, salaryman Amakusa Ryo is saved by a high school girl at the station. He later finds out that the girl is Arima Ichika. Ryo is somewhat of a womanizer and to repay her for saving him, he suggests giving her a kiss or going out on a date with her, in which Ichika tells him he's creepy. This, however, opens a new door for Ryo and he falls madly in love with her. Ever since then, Ryo tries to overly express his feelings to Ichika. Ichika keeps insulting him and says he's being creepy, but he just seems to take it as her way of showing affection towards him...



.......Anime is truly a mistake.

The manga that anime is based on is actually written by a woman for women. Age gap romance is popular among woman manga readers.

Brief thoughts on the first half of Yokohama Dream Cinderella.

Opener was rough & sloppy. Momo beating up Mina was cool. Tall Saya vs Unagi was fine. The Elimination tag was mostly fun but I hated the finish. Saki gets clobbered by a chair to the head and then gets a roll up anyway? Not feeling it. Gokigen Death in Oedo Tai looking devastated while still doing her devil horns is real good though. I do so enjoy her character work, there's real pathos on her being forced into Oedo Tai.

looking at the wiki and some other resources, in both art and plot this seems pretty solidly josei (18-45 women demo). out of my wheelhouse, but not a bad VA gig imo

She's been out of the title scene for a long time. Her only achievement of note in the last year was winning the tag tournament with AZM. She gets some high profile matches (which she usually loses), but for now she's just kind of treading water and it's clear that Rossy only sees her as a "good hand", like Kyona, now that the roster is a little deeper.

I'm using the recent Korakuen show as my springboard to finally get into Actwres girl'Z after years of saying "hmm, I should get into Actwres girl'Z" whenever their wrestlers pop up in Ice Ribbon. Are there any must-see recentish matches before that show I should check out?
