Is there a way from keeping the forum from re-sizing the photos? It mangled this one and it's only 240px wide...

LUKIE!!

As a reminder, Io is the younger sister and is 17.  Mio is the older sister (and a little taller) and is 19.

Io is in a love affair with her cat, Silver.

But she can also do a running SSP.


Mio, I am convinced, is a closeted, cosplaying pervert that uses joshi puroresu as an outlet.

But she's also hotness defined and she can kick my head in without really having to try.

I think my thoughts on Mio are dirty enough for the entire forum.

I'm still waiting with baited breath to see a match with Mio in action instead of just the stills from the MAKEHEN shows...hopefully Fuuka Matsuri will hit the torrents...

Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 05, 2007, 10:09:57 AM
The Shirai sisters finally customized their blog to the colors they wanted.  It's now all black and gray and purple.

And Io was being Io again.  She went to school and left her keys inside the house.  When she called "the family they were slow to come back."

She had a second blog where she was still waiting on Mio to get back after school to let her back in the house.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is the tone of their sister-sister relationship, lol.

Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 05, 2007, 10:12:04 AM
And I can see Mio lagging on purpose to teach her a lesson too.

I still ever now and then I get a flash in my mind's eye of Mio and the faces she was making at Io during that Fuuka Matsuri thing...;D
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on October 05, 2007, 10:13:54 AM
Well, I think all the blog designing was actually Io killing time on either a laptop or in a cafe while she was waiting on Mio to get back.  She said she skimmed through almost all her songs on her iPod too.

It says family, but then she later updates that she's still waiting on Mio.  No mention of her parents at all.

Mio and Io also went to go see RING, starring KAORU and Toshie Uematsu.  Io said it was very good, afterwards they went to eat at a Chinese restaurant.

Looking at Mio, you can kinda tell she has a bit of a shiner on her right eye, left over from the Fuuka Festival match.

Wanna bet that little mouse on Mio's face was some kind of sister reciept for using make-up or hiding the remote or something like that?

for some reason I could see them having that kind of relationship

Well, well.

Io and Mio got an email from Kyoko Kimura inviting them to go with her to the most recent NJPW show.

Apparently Kyoko knows a few of the guys.  I think Io was a little starstruck.

And she talk to Kyoko a bit about training in Mexico and the like.

Not a whole lot about Mio, she went with them, but Io wrote the blog and she spent most of the time gushing about Kyoko and the show.

That's awesome for a shirt.

Front:  SPTS

Back:  Spawned from Hawtness.

And if someone sent them, they'd probably wear them and have no idea.

*bwah
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: luckycleareyes on October 08, 2007, 11:32:12 AM
Why?

Well because Io was impressed and gushing about Mama Bear. Why would Kyoko pick them to go to the show? She must've done it for a reason. And they were like 6th row judging from the photos.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/e/b/eb116b39.jpg)

Io is funny to - "these three persons'  hairstyles being wholly showy - "

And on the show itself, "Truly, this is 'major'..."

I forgot that until she started wrestling, Io never even watched wrestling and, "...there was no knowlege about the history or the wrestlers."

"The wrestlers who I mainly know are those familiar to us who are taking an active part in what is called "indie system."

So, she doesn't even know the big name guys in the big promotions.

She did get to meet Koji Kanemoto after his match, since that's who Kimura is friends with and got them the tickets. She said she thanked him very much.

She also thanks Kimura and Kanemoto for feeding her love of pro wrestling and she likes to learn more and more about her new life's love.

Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: luckycleareyes on October 16, 2007, 02:11:27 PM
Io posted about the JR ALL STAR shoot. She said they gave Fuuka the t-shirt because she was cold as they were outside in the park.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/0/e/0e1e19d1.jpg)

"It suits her," Io adds.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/b/d/bd81efe0.jpg)

"This camera phone photo is baka-chin Io after the photography session."

"Since I had on my new costume, and my backside is amazingly huge, I was cold!!!"

"I warmed myself with some hot milk-tea immediately afterwards."

Mio actually posted an apology on the blog for not posting in Fer-EBER.

And then she posts about being exhausted over lunch time.

I wonder if Io threatened to black her eye again if she didn't start posting.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 20, 2007, 11:20:52 AM
I wouldn't doubt that in the least! 

Io:  Dammit, sister...I already have to carry you in matches, at least you can post on the blog!

Mio:  I would not want to intrude on your amazingly huge backside

But the last bit was hilarious.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai

Now I'M really wondering where their parents are.

In one of their recent blogs, they had a family dinner out.  Io, Mio and older sister.  No parents.

As for the rest, they talked about sushi, Io likes Tom and Jerry, Batman shirts and snarks on things again.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sakebito_ONI on October 22, 2007, 05:35:14 PM
I'm starting to think that they may have died when they were young *wail

Not surprised that Io like Tom and Jerry...the old ones with no dialogue would transend the language barrier and are both funny and violent.  Two things I think we can associate with Io safely *haha

Is Ohata doing an Ohka tribute in that?  I wonder if she wore that in their tag match?

Oh man, if that is the result of Francoise* "training"  Mio as to how to do sexay poses she needs shooting before her influence can spread further!  Huh?  I just noticed Mio is wearing a version of Ohatas outfit...

Now I think I see the gag... *chl

whose blog is that from? I want to read the story behind it. Mio is mocking the pose Misaki did in the LADY'S RING #0 issue. And is that Matsumoto doing Io's fingers and tongue gimmick?

I was about to say...  All three are doing funny tributes.  Misaki is Ohka, Mio is Misaki, and Hiroyo is Io, complete with tongue sticking out.  As for blog, it wasn't from a blog, but Arisa Nakajima's new website, at http://l16.chip.jp/arinko333 (http://l16.chip.jp/arinko333).  It was taken during the photoshoot for the Jr. All Star show coming up.

Been WAY too long since we had an update on these two.

There's apparently an independent show these two are going to be a part of, the women's match I believe, is GAMI and Mio Shirai v. Toshie Uematsu and Io Shirai.

Mio should thank her lucky stars Halloween isn't more popular in Japan.

One of the girls overdid it in practice and was surprised by how much pain they were in the next day.

And of course, photos of Silver.

I dunno, with how AKINO is with Tida and Io is with Silver, I'm almost of a mind that if they ever started talking they'd have a Cat Adoration Club started before long...

It's a Kaz Miyamoto produced show on 11/17 at Shin-kiba.

Okay guys.

The SPTS commented on their blog that viewership was pretty down.  Which makes Io pretty down.  Which means there's no snarky goodness for us to laugh at.

So.

How's about we all go flood their blog again and earn another (@_@) from Mio?

Fuuka posted about the Fuuka Rangers meeting for a meal, Fuuka, Rica, Mio and Io.

She says

"The meeting derailed rapidly (^O^)"

"Mio & Io-chan immediately begin to quarrel, and we don't interupt (^-^;"

"December 22 - Shin-kiba~....((((*^o^)ノ"

This post is titled "Yankee Io"

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/jdstar_fuka/imgs/7/5/753cf8e6.jpg)

She said Io was very enthusistic and said she would take notes during the meeting about the Fuuka Matsuri.

"After 30 minutes, it's still a blank piece of paper..."

"1 hour later, it is still blank paper..."

"2 hours later..."

Io posted on her blog that RICA was really nice to her today. She said RICA gave her a pink balloon which was helium filled and not just normal which Io was ecstatic about. And then when they went to McDonalds RICA bought a happy meal "...even though she's an adult." Her toy was a Keroro Gunsō (Sgt. Frog/ケロロ軍曹) cell phone strap figure and RICA gave it to Io.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/e/1/e17b15ea.jpg)

Io blogged about this and she was loving the fact that Mio blew up an egg in the microwave, calling her a "dasai" or a person who doesn't know the simplest things.

"I was in the ladies room and the explosion was audible from there!"

"Boiled eggs to me are kirai." - meaning Io doesn't like boiled eggs.

"There was also an incident of boiling milk on the stove range."

"Io is #1"  - イオがNo.1。

"Mio is likely to be more careful and warm her eggs the usual way on the cooking stove."

She said Mio's new nickname is "BOMA!"

My guess is that's the sound the eggs makes when it explodes in the microwave.

Also, Io is feeling the squeeze of being in High School and a indy wrestler. This weekend she has that Kaz Miyamoto show on 11/17 and then MAKEHEN on 11/18. Then on Monday she has a school trip, and when she returns has practice and another match scheduled for somewhere. She said she's going to bed now so she has energy. That was posted at 12:51 AM on 11/17.

She says this picture is of her forelock, but since it was getting in her way she made it a topknot and likes it because it's two-tone.

Mio ga ichiban dasai!!!  *haha

Actually, with a schedule like that, I really hope that Io doesn't burn out mentally, because that's when mistakes and accidents and injuries happen, and it would be a real shame.

Plus, two-tone forelocks are sooooooo over!!!!

Mio is 19/20 and Io is 17.

Thanks for the correction Kori ^_^  Much appreciated. 

Semi on-topic:  interesting combo:  Takako Inoue and Io vs. Cherry and Francoise on the 24th.  *heart skips a beat* 

Not taking a shot at Takako, but her + Io = same average age as Cherry and Franciose?  hehe.  I'm guessing Takoko takes this one for their team over Francoise, despite me wanting a Cherry team to win!   *gloom

Io is very funny, but yes she's half crazy. She is afterall a teenage girl, so...

I was reading some stuff about how they got into wrestling. Apparently Tomohiko Hashimoto wanted his own athresses for MAKEHEN, figuring they'd draw some bucks. So he found Mio and this girl named Erika Ura. Apparently Ura got herself a hernia and never got to debut. She's announced her return soon - http://yaplog.jp/erika_ura/

Mio on the other hand gave pro wrestling a shot and concluded, "Do you know who I think would love this gig - my sister!"

And it turns out Mio's sister happens to be as naturally athlethic as any of the SENDAI girls, and a gymnast to boot.

Luck or fate?

Well, I think both sisters are crazy.

I don't know about Mio. Fuuka claims it's all an act and that in reality she's "delicate." I think that was the word...

Post by: Her Majesty Queen Kori I on November 26, 2007, 01:04:43 PM
Delicate.

Right.  They always say that about the quiet ones...

It still wouldn't surprise me if, during a match, she just snapped and kicked someone's head right the hell in.

that works with the nifty translator as well...and the translation is better!

And, what I did to get around the whole not having the language pack on my comp cos I use a not-very-legal version of XP was to get the Before You Know It language teaching system (http://www.byki.com) and got the free version for Japanese...I didn't even know when I installed it that it would do it, I just figured I be getting instruction in romanji with a bunch of square and squiggly shits like I used to, but when I checked a page to nifty it, POOF! there was kanji, fully readable (well as readable as kanji can be)

Odd that it was Mio that got Io into puro, yet there are more Io matches out there to be seen...

The player directory at the Ladies Ring mobile site (one of the few parts you can still access without a Japanese mobile phone) has Mio's 20th birthday as 2/14.  Maybe it's a typo and her birthday was really 1/14?  Does anyone know for sure?  I'd feel bad about leaving her 20th birthday (which I think is considered a big deal in Japan) off the birthday thread.

1/14 is "Coming of Age Holiday". The girls who turn 20 during the year (or turned last year, I forget) all wear kimono to celebrate on 1/14.

Post by: luckycleareyes on January 20, 2008, 04:34:31 PM
Io and Mio are both very nice in person. They appreciate gaijin fans and are great for photos etc.

They're also WORKERS when it comes to merch. So remember to buy something. Not pushy, just lots of choices at their table and they're always there if not in the ring. At TEAM VADER, even though her match was right before intermission, Mio was wearing her hoodie and selling the Fuuka beating at the merch table pronto.

Not a knock on them at all, considering they're so young they grasped the "indy system" thing very quickly. Io is exceptionally smart and proactive in making it worth it. Plus, Fuuka is connected in the "make money by getting you picture taken" (aka MODELING)  and is also an exceptional merch worker and she's all over the marketability of the Shirai Sisters.

And obviously, Daizee Haze is also very cool and very aproachable. Somebody needs to buy a t-shirt.

But if the wrestlers do look act that, it makes them look bad. Oh you didnt pay for a shirt? *smugs* Well, I paid to see your show didnt I? No wonder joshi went down the shitter, with their lousy service and not being nice to a fan jsut because they didnt buy a shirt or because they're a whitey!

I guess. But if you do the Japan trip, be ready to spend money. Puro vacaitioning isn't cheap, but it's a blast.

And you'll have good experiences and bad depending on the circumstance. Like I pissed off Cherry at the LADY'S Ring festival, but she didn't remember me and was very nice and adorable at the Jr. All Stars. So who knows, maybe next time with Shimoda she'll be nice...

Io is fantastically "indy" in that Northeast USA way.

It's great to see somebody who has been in the business a year doing all these high flying moves and being accepted by the scene. I think nobody can deny her marketability going forward, or they figure, "what the hell, the scene is dead anyway!"

 *ban!

She's very young and if she sticks with wrestling she could make herself very memorable. That is if she doesn't suffer a major injury from all the risky moves. I think her only top-rope move is the moonsault...

paul london did it once on a WWE house show and vince mcmahon almost fired him for doing that since SSP is banned in the WWE
but i rarely see the running SSP until i watched Io

They were at a houseshow? Interesting.

they almost banned the tombstone piledriver but since the Undertaker never botched it, they just allowed it ONLY for Undertaker

This blog is titled - トムとジェリー or "Tom and Jelly"

Io has written before how she's a HUGE mark for the Tom and Jerry (Jelly) cartoon. Well...

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/b/e/be6a0b2e.jpg)

"I went to Donki today where they were selling the KAWAII stuffed-animal suit on sale so I did an impulse buy!"

"It's Tom of my favorite 'Tom and Jelly' \(^O^)/"

"Although I like Jelly (mouse), it was all sold out..."

She said it's not only cute, but warm.

"Big Satisfaction from 3000yen. Thank you ヽ(´∀`)/"

Io is actually a pretty good illustrator, who with some next level schooling will be pretty awesome. I wonder if she has plans for Art School after high school?

She pulled an all-nighter last night to get a project done.

Here it is at midnight, doing the color separations.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/2/9/290a6d58.jpg)

Here it is at 2AM, she said her cellphone pic isn't showing the colors that well.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/e/d/ed1846ea.jpg)

And finally at 5AM

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/6/9/69ea8eb3.jpg)

She also is obsessed about her white plastic erasers, which is a sure sign of a true pencil artist. Best erasers out there, and it looks like Io uses colored pencil and water colors.

Also in a blog titled ジムナスティック or "JIMUNASU TICK" Io went back to her old gymnastics school from middle school where she said she went every night after school for years.

She said she "retired" from gymnastics 2 years ago, and this is the first time she's been back in about a year-and-a-half. She said  she compared it to when she was last there: "...some of the intruments are tattered, or some are now completely new."

She said watching the coach run the practice, the smell and cold air in the gym, the coach scolding the students all gave her a very nostalgic feeling. She said her coach wanted her to assist, but she said she had "grown fat and cannot." She said she practiced on the uneven parrallel bars and the trampoline.

She said she did a poor job on the trampoline, as she's completely accustomed to bumping in a ring now which is much less elastic. The coach told her to please come again and she apologized for interfering with the practice but thanked them greatly.

So Mio must've turned 20 while I wasn't looking.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/c/b/cb9a3659.JPG)

And she was celebrating some kind of graduation...she chose wine because it had less alcohol, at least that's how I read it.  Directly, the quote goes:

And I understood things as alcohol not being strong (NOд orz it is made to seldom drink)

Oh, and now we finally have a reason to cheer for Lance Hoyt!

Mio posted that she put on her new kimono and went to Yasukuni Shrine to dance.

She posted afterwards explaining that she was a volunteer who did Japanese dancing on a specially built stage as Yasukuni. I think her fans wanted to know because if they had they would've been there to watch or something...

Check Mio's promo at the begining of this video. She acts all stuck up saying she doesn't like SENDAI etc. They way she walks to the ring, bows etc. Some moderate heel work. And this might be her best match so far.

I love the way she says "...kirai..."

It looks like the sisters bring something out in each other. Not to say that Mio doesn't look like she's improving anyway!

I too totally marked out for her interview and entrance.  It looks like she really has been taking some lessons from a certain "Joshi Diva".  I pray she leaves her lips alone though  *bwah
Io is truly learning the ways of the spot monkey.  Her lionsault was pretty sweet but I can't tell if the ending was fudged or whether it was fudged on purpose. It looked like Niizeki, her opponent got her shoulders up before the three and Io didn't exactly look like she had picked up a rare singles win.  Did anybody else notice that?  Niizeki seems to be getting something of a push, for a rookie, in JWP and I wonder if they wanted her to lose but with the doubt.

Agreed. She had me cracking up during her promo and in-ring entrance because she appeared to be this spoiled child who thinks she's too good to wrestle in a specific prefecture. That was when the photo with Mio and Io posing the B-Boy (or should I say, B-Girl) stance came to mind and I posted a comment about Mio's "gangsta mentality", in case anybody didn't read it this morning.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the Io/Mayuka match was an intentionally controversial ending. 

Also, it's Io's 18th birthday today-Mio turned 20 a few months ago.

Finally, I sense a strong possibility that we might see Shirai sisters vs Sendai sisters II at the June Sendai show, assuming that Sendai Sachiko loses in the 2nd round of the tournament and is not involved in the semifinals/finals of the tournament.  They seem to be "educating" the Sendai crowd that the Shirais are sassy little punks that hate Sendai and should be hated, as opposed to the Kanari girls, who are sassy little punks who should be loved because they are YOUR sassy little punks who wear red like Meiko.  It's pretty much the opposite in Tokyo; there you should love the Shirais and hate the Sendai sisters.

Io still has a little bit of "deer in the headlights" as far as promos go. She's way more confident in her wrestling than she is speaking.

Mio seems to have both at that perfect mixture, plus she's hot as Hell. She's got huge money potential, and together they could go real far. Fuka has joked on her blog that Mio scolds her and Io for speaking in slang and you when you see her promo, she flows... You always know somebody who speaks perfect Japanese when you suck at Japanese... because you understand them!!!

As for the Kanari vs. Shirai you have it exactly I think. Tokyo also loves Meiko so therefore loves Okuda.

Sorry. You could e-mail Io but I doubt she'll understand or respond unless your request is in Japanese.

The email she posts on their blog is io-io@xxne.jp

But they only sell them at shows. You won't see them in stores in Japan.

No big deal, besides most Japanese merchandise isn't made for men my size. A Japanese XL is a US L or sometimes an M.

After watching both Youth Tourney matches from SENDAI I'm even a bigger fan of Mio and Io. Jumpin' Jesus On A Pogo Stick are they fun to watch in the ring!

Random EXALTINAGE for J.H. for that new avatar where Kayoko has the JWP belt in one hand and a cold beer in her other hand! Awesome!

Someone needs to tell Io that if she wants to use "We Will Rock You" as her music to use the original Queen version and not whatever terrible cover version that she's using.

Mio & Io had their first event on 6/15 at a puro themed restaurant called "Dining Room Tavern Arm Lock" in Adachi-ku.

It was 5000 yen which included 1 drink.

They took questions from their fans, met them and took photos etc..

(http://voxy-kantoku.cocolog-izu.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/06/17/dscn1206.jpg)

They did on-the-spot personalization autographs for everybody who attended.

After that, they competed against each other in a game of DDR (Dance Dance Revolution), which Io easily won.

(http://voxy-kantoku.cocolog-izu.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/06/17/dscn1221.jpg)

The deal was that whoever lost had to "strike a sexy pose" for the fans in attendance to photograph. Here's Mio paying her dues.

(http://voxy-kantoku.cocolog-izu.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/06/17/dscn1226.jpg)

They then both went around individually to each table and spoke to their fans and took photos with them.

Few more photos here - http://voxy-kantoku.cocolog-izu.com/blog/2008/06/08615_41b5.html

The guy who went said it was a good time and Mio & Io were great hosts.

Io posted on their blog that it was a "great success." I'd say, at $50 a head you know they got more than 10 people...

CHA-CHING SPTS!!

So I was fiddling around with FirePro REturns and suddenly decided to make our bleoved Shirai's. The problem... I made Io just a tad too good as she is damn near unbeatable when I sim matches. She won my JWP title from Kayoko Haruyama in like 6 minutes and then made 5 defenses with her longest match being 12 mintues (she finally dropped the title ot my Azumi Hyuga Edit in a 35 minute war).

From there Mio and Io won the tag belts from UeamtsuRan in 2 straight falls and no one seems to be able to stop them (12 defenses and still going strong). I've created monsters and they need to be stopped!

I remember reading a while back that Fuuka had a similar promotion... spend an hour with Fuuka, watching the flowers... or something like that. Are these types of seemingly random promotions common for Japanese celebrities (wrestling or otherwise)? And are they usually done as official promotions (like "Nike presents Ichiro and Fukudome, having lunch with their fans"), or is it just the wrestler or celebrity decides to go out and make some extra easy cash?

I honestly don't know the details or the origin. Though indy promotions will do barbecues or meet & greet events while on the road often, since those fans don't see them as much. They'll promote it in their blogs where to go following a show. Joshi Promotions have become very adept and making money wherever they can find it. Fuka is a special case as she's signed to an agency whose job it is to promote her, get her work, and make her and themselves money.

And before/after and intermission at joshi shows the wrestlers are often at their tables selling merchandise. Stores and other wrestling related promotions often use them as promotional draws which is common everywhere. Example: COME TO THE SPORTS CARD EXPO AND MEET AND GREET FUKA AND AYUMI KURIHARA! And Fuka also did a signing at a store where Ibushi Kota was also signing. Ayumi did a book singing with Kana, and also had her support evets where she dresses like Gachapin, a chick in an egg, or Doraemon. They get paid for all this.

Also the photos for the Chiba Lotte noodles. Mio doing magazine shoots etc...

Hell, I saw Eli Manning was signing some place nearby and they had the "menu" and it was like $50 for a signed item. $150 for a signed mini helmet. Let's not forget about the $40 entrance fee...

When I was at MAKEHEN two weeks ago, I went to get Shibutani's autograph (she was there selling tickets for WAVE). Mio had her table set up and when I walked up to Shu and asked her to sign, Mio said all pouty to me - "Watashi..."

I know "Watashi" means I/me in correct Japanese (most people say "Boku," or if amongst males "ORE!") but it threw me because I forgot Mio always speaks in correct Japanese. So I'm thinking, "watashi? Does it mean something else?"

But then I figured out she was basically saying, "what about me?"

So I said "motte imasu" and pointed to her photo and her sig from the JR. ALL STARS.

"Motte imasu" means "I have it." She just smiled back.

Then my girlfriend tells me if I said it fast like "motte-masu" (sp?) it basically means "dude, you're hot." So I'm not sure which I said!!

I think anyone regardless of orientation can guage what they find attractive. You don't have to be a gay man to be able to judge a man's attractiveness or a straight man/gay woman to judge a woman's; that's lame talk. I happen to find Io more attractive, as well. *haha

People with more mainstream tastes find Mio more attractive often because of the influence of her being thought of as the prettier of the two jsut because she fits the mainstream ideal.

This is a kind of interesting thing. Mio & Io were at the 2/27 ZERO1 show in a match versus Saki & Matsuo. Saki said on her blog that previous to the show she was teaching Io some of her moves since she's retiring. She wasn't specific.

However on the Shirai Shimai blog Io said the move Saki taught her is called the "One Way" (ワンウェイ wanwei)

Io describes it as while your opponent is on their knees you do a "rana"  and it that slams your opponents face to the mat. (In their 1/27 ZERO1 match that's now on the web Saki does it to Hikaru at 11:05)

Io says Saki invented this move and she can do it because "Since I am also short, I can use this move."

I'm pretty sure in my 10 years of watching indy wrestling I've seen this move before. Probably in CHIKARA or CZW. Either way Io's going to use it now as a gift from Saki.

"Maemura-san who is retiring to private life entrusted this to me - One Way"

I believe Saki had used the move against Corino at one time. In any case, if anybody's going to use the "One Way" as a homage to Maemura, it would be Io Shirai. The Low Rana is actually suitable for Io's repertoire considering her in-ring style and small stature.

Hikaru went to MAKEHEN yesterday to help Io and Mio with training.

ZERO1 is high on the SPTS right now, and Hikaru and Saki think Io is going to be the real deal due to her natural athleticism.

Io is of course very flattered by this and you can tell she's mushy for Hikaru.

Also - 卒業まであと4日!

Io graduates High School on Friday. No more "JK" student for her.

The Shirai Sisters held their 2nd Anniversary event and had some paying fans come to a shop for talking, games etc. The cost was 7500 yen a person which includes all-you-can-drink. The fans got the above "purikura" photos if they could win rock-paper-scissors versus the sisters.

(Rock-Paper-Scissors is called "Janken" or "Jankenpon" in Japan and is a very common way of deciding things in friendly settings. Sometimes Izakaya's will have it so if you can beat the house in a game you'll win a free beer or half-price etc.)

Mio barely ever posts on the blog.

Io does, and she wrote how the Cherry blossoms have started to come out and that spring is her favorite season by far. Of course there is also this post that begins ガッデム (Gaddemu) which I'm pretty sure is katakana for "GODDAMN" as with Spring her hay-fever allergies have kicked in.

She mentions that the RINGSTARS Vol.3 issue has and article of Hyuga teaching her new pro wrestling moves. Io is definitely getting the rub, especially since it appears now that she's graduated High School she's going to focus fully on pro wrestling.

Sawa looks like he had a rough night. He even still has bed head.

Pro wrestlers aren't accustomed to being up early in the morning.

Saki and Hikaru  have the same correct posture. It's just not as obvious because their heads are turned. Io is slumping a little.

Seeing the SPTS next to each other in profile you can really see the family resemblance - same eyes and lips. Their chins are close but different noses completely.

Oh and the guy in the back over Saki's head and next to Sawa, that's Fujiwara-san  the FIRST ON STAGE employee that is engaged to Yinling.

(http://www.plus-blog.sportsnavi.com/account/venus-athlete/images/venus-athlete-58820.jpg)

I had mentioned before that Mio & Io had spent some time in ZERO1 versus Hikaru and Saki on their "Retirement Road." Hikaru and Saki kind of took them under their wing and taught them some new tricks and lessons in pro wrestling. Saki even bestowed one of her moves to Io.

Hikaru even started going to Makehen shows to train them both on her own time. This of course caused the the SPTS to fall in love with Hikaru and Saki but mostly Hikaru... and vice-versa.

Hikaru and Saki retired on 4/26 and Mio and Io were both there as seconds but didn't have matches (mostly because of Aja Kong being a classic demanding veteran pain-in-the-ass in the booking of the show; Ayumi got bumped for the same reason).

However, Hikaru being Hikaru wasn't going to go out without locking up with Io one more time, so they had a short singles match on 4/24 for MAKEHEN.

Io was very nervous about this, she posted on the Shirai Shimai blog that this was going to be Hikaru's final singles match of her career before her final bout against Saki.

"It is the final match where I'll stand in the ring with Hikaru-san."

She said she was having trouble sleeping.

So the match eventually rolled around and it was a ten minute draw that apparently was a sprint from beginning to end. And then following the match Hikaru took the microphone and put Io over.

She encouraged Io and said she "full of possibility."

This of course sent Io to tears.

Awww....see Io cried.

But seriously, Hikaru is smart and knows just how far a little encouragement will go.

This isn't the old days where beating on the young girls is going to keep them around. That might've been fine back when AJW had open try-outs and 2,000 girls showed up.

Look at Meiko, she chased her best student right out of town with the "old style," and is Okuda really that much better than the other young girls for it?

Well I didn't mean intentionally cult/abusive relationship, but keeping one isolated and feeling like it's their only thing.
And did you not see the purple leopard photoshoot? Even the ring gear. It's all so flashy and over the top. Her in sendai was more conservative, and just played the fiery ace of the promotion. It's not like her personality changed, but she's now fully expressing it unlike in Sendai.

Yeah I thought you might be talking about the outfit change which has a lot more to do with the MAHEKEN style than Okuda's personal changes.

And it wasn't like Meiko didn't send the girls to work shows outside of Sendai so the isolationist talk doesn't really hold up much either.

No one seems to know. I did find out why she joined MAKEHEN though. Apparently, since the Shirai's didn't like the actress wrestler, they got rid of her and had a spot open, which is probably why Okuda joined.

Really? I guess the "Athress" didn't cut it with the Shirai clan, so Okuda may have seized the opportunity to join MAKEHEN. Makes a little bit of sense, though?

By the way, a belated congratulations go to both Mio and Io for becoming tag champions. Sure, these are the title belts from WAVE, but you got to start somewhere, right?

The "athress" was Yuna (Yuka?) from Osaka Pro.

Io turned 19 on 5/8.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/f/5/f514ec36.jpg)

She said she got many cakes and presents from fans it was a little overwhelming. She also was surprised at how many emails and messages she got.

Also I saw this on Ikuto Hidaka's blog. He went to a mask shop today to get one of his masks for the "Fukumen MANIA XII." When he was there, both RAY and Io were there.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/hidacatch/imgs/8/d/8d003ba6.JPG)

So I went to the Fukemen MANIA XII website and checked it out and they announced both RAY and Io as well.

The photo has Io holding Hidaka's mask again. I'm guessing they'll put Io in a mask as well.

Io posted about the MASK MANIA show on the Shirai Shimai blog, and coincidentally used the same two images I posted above.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/archives/1094360.html

She said she's excited to wear a mask, as she always thought masked wrestlers were cool. She said creating the mask was difficult because she was surrounded by many masks of different kinds and it was almost too much inspiration.

"Deciding the design is an important process. The type of mask form is decided simultaneously with design."

She said she asked the makers to keep the amount of cloth to a minimum as she's a little nervous about wrestling in a mask for the first time.

The main thing is her view is narrowed and the mask is very hot. She said she wants her hair and her ears to be exposed because of that.

She also mentioned how Hidaka will create a new mask for a show and then auction it off right after and makes a good buck because of the uniqueness of each design.

So she said she'll be doing the same thing and once the show is over she'll post a price.

 *haha

EDIT: Black Eye 2 is also reporting that Fuuka and Ayumi Kurihara are going to be "transformed into the masked women" for the show.

The show with Io wearing a mask is a show based around the Masked Superstar's return to Japan. He is a youth counselor and this will be a charity show. Fuka indeed will also don a mask.

Well it appears Mio & Io have done some softcore porn. Though they are the ones in the position of committing sexuhara on AV Idol Itsuki Azuma.

The movie is titled "グラドルバトル デスコロシアム アンダーカヴァーズクライシス" (something about GRAVURE IDOL BATTLES...). Here's the cover:

I've brought quite a few of their DVDs & some of their pro-wrestling stuff is really good...and the girls are HOTTTT *bwah

All I know is its only shot a few months ago.

It's not really that over-the-top, considering they put their hands all over scantily clad females all the time. But I came upon it completely by accident, and I have never seen mention of it before.

So they might just be keeping a low profile on it, though they both did VENUS ATHLETE stuff before. And obviously they probably did it for the money.

The ENGLISH site where I guess you can buy it is http://www.akiba-heroine.com/

I wonder if Fuuka knows??  *chl

Io finally got her mask for the MASK MANIA show. She said she wants to get in some practice time and wearing it around so she's sure it won't cause her problems.

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/2/1/21d13976.jpg)

And she decided on how much she'd auction her mask off for following the show:

 59,800 yen ($620 USD!)

You can see it's heavily influenced by Hidaka's walking in masks. And it's made by the same person so it probably cost a pretty penny to begin with.

So because I mention the more realistic reason to why they aren't getting US bookings and somehow I'm Pozen now, really, what fuck was that. Shit ELPS comes off more like Frank with his constant unreasonable Fuuka hate.

All I'm saying is that I don't see where the whole we are too green for the US stuff is coming from seeing as they likely wouldn't booked in the US anyways. They don't have any name value over here and no joshi promotions really seem to have any connections or interest in working over here.

It's not unreasonable. She can't do basic moves. If she'd just do bati bati style she'd be great. But she want to be "TeH LuChArEsU" which she fails hard at.

I understand the Shirai Sisters aren't gonna get booking even if they wanted them, but I was talking to Hailey about booking joshi girls on american shows and she said stuff like how you need to book more than 1 girl or they might not wanna go. She said the Shirai girls didn't want american bookings because they thought they were too green.

Post by: J.H. - Firmly Re-Dedicated to Yoneyama! on June 19, 2009, 08:45:37 AM
Look I adore the Shirai's BUT... what they have is natural athletic ability, not necessarily an understanding of basic pro-wrestling. Mio can strike a little and attempt submissions but hasn't really found her style yet. Io is a spot-monkey, mind you a fun spot-monkey, but she really rely on her athleticism more than anything. What thy need is to get better training. Didn't I hear that Mio had been working in the IBUKI dojo a few months back?

That is th sort of training they both need, though if Mio & Io went to Queen Bee and got training there it would be just as cool. I mean learning from guys like Ishikawa and Otsuka (aka Mr. Master of All Wrestling Styles) would be great.

But man, the factthat they know their own limitations is impressive, as most would jump to go to the states. Instead they want to hon their craft. I've gotta respect that.

This is pretty much a bs claim. She does like one or two moves that might go into that category and really not too much worse than any other joshi wrestler doing them. Same with the basics.

She botches basic moves all the time. She has some of the best kicks, but that's it. Even her jumping arm bar is shitty. It's more like a sloppy small package that ends with her switching positions into an armbar. She's barely improved at all since leaving JD, which was three years ago.

You're mentioning a flying armbar whilst talking about her messing up 'basic' moves?  Anyway, I have to agree with Eivion.  Fuuka isn't great compared to some but she can do a lot well enough to have effective matches and has pretty much the same botch ratio to the other JD alumni, like Ohata and Shuu.  Out of all of them Shuu is probably currently the best, but they all have their moments.  Pretty much the same as the Shirai sisters.  *falls over topic*

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 19, 2009, 02:04:26 PM
I have a hard time judging Shibutani. She doesn't get on tv almost at all anymore. During JD, she was lightyears ahead of either Fuka or Ohata. But I dunno, since she never gets on Sendai, Oz, and rarely gets on NEO. She had a really good match at starting over, so she's probably the best of the three, though I dunno since I'm a huge Ohata mark. Plus Ohata has probably the second best psychology next to Kurihara.

I've seen Fuka botch a headlock takedown and a snapmare before. I thought she was great on Queen Bee, but outside of that she's pretty damn awful. I'm not even sure wrestling's really her passion.

But anyway back to the shirais. I think somewhere like Shimmer'd be good for them. Shimmer's all about taking green workers and exposing them to the top talent around the world.

Prazak said the only reason he didn't book Ayako was they already had Stock and she was super over, and he didn't wanna upset CMLL by bringing in someone from AAA and losing someone the fans liked so much. Maybe if Ayako goes in Shimmer, it'll bring more attention to Shimmer over in japan. Hell, Ibuki's been in talks with shimmer about a co-produced show for over a year now.

Mio and Io could easily main event something like AIW... I would even say they are good enough to be on the undercard in a Shimmer tag match. And their notoriety is actually irrelevant to either of those scenarios. The problem would seem to me that none of that is really worth traveling to the U.S. for at this point.

And yes, ELPS is often critical in a way to imply that he is some sort of expert as opposed to just another fan with an opinion.

Fuuka entertains me. That's about all I can really care about.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 20, 2009, 04:00:34 PM
I have two big reasons to be critical of Fuuka.

2. She's the most visible joshi going right now, yet she fucking sucks which makes the rest of the girls look bad.

The value of your logic is on par with the value of your opinion.

If you don't like her, that's cool. You don't have to be an expert, and you don't even have to justify it.

And, do you want to simply be a wrestler? Or do you want to be a successful wrestler? Maybe you could learn something from Fuuka regarding self-promotion.

Success, should be, not the art of getting yourself on shows you don't belong on but the art of getting things right. "Success" in wrestling seems to mean only money to too many people.

As far as self-promotion goes, it shouldn't take on a Mary Sue feel or it will get annoying when you can't deliver.

The Shirai's said they won't be selling any merchandise today because of what happened. The $3,000 figure is correct also.

The Shirai backlash seems to be getting out of hand. Some of the fans are wishing the Shirai's an early retirement, and some fans are spreading rumors by saying they always saw the Shirai's creating disturbances by smoking, drinking, talking about sex, and being noisy.

Mio & Io put some stuff on their blog, saying they're going to leave commenting open despite some of the heat they're getting.

They also said that they were not present when the crime went down, and don't know how that rumor started. Because of this they said they don't know the details of what happened.

They also said whatever Tomohiko Hashimoto did he was always cool to them.

And finally they say they will continue to wrestle and improve and apologize to everybody etc. And as Rob mentioned they said they'd suspend selling merchandise to avoid confusion of who is being supported with the fans money.

It's no different than somebody like Jordan in England making an absolute shit load from hawking herself and her body.  If even women - and quite a lot of them do in this country - can think that such a person is to be admired then I for one wont judge the Shirais, or the wrestling business in general, for doing the same.  However, I might feel bad about society as a whole.

I'm not making a judgment on the Shirais, but I find the situation incredibly depressing. They were two young girls with a boatload of talent who are seemingly allowing the darker side of the business to eat them up and appear to be one step away from Tojyo'ing themselves out of wrestling. Its sad.

Just so people know, while the Shirai Sisters are getting heat for what Hashimoto did they're also getting a ton of support
The Japanese internet pro wrestling fans are very similar to the US internet pro wrestling fan. There are people calling them the "Stupid Sisters" and saying "all they have left is to become AV girls" etc. but they're anonymous posters on 2ch.

Well they're saying "baka shimai" instead of "shirai shimai." Like I said they fit the same molds as American internet fans, from normal to total douchbags who know-it-all, to total trolls.

And with the whole MAKEHEN thing the "elite fans"' of NOAH, NJPW etc. are saying indy wrestling is "3rd rate companies with 3rd rate wrestlers for 3rd rate fans."

See, Japanese fans are the same as non-Japanese pro wrestling fans.  *chl

There's also a lot of making fun of Tomohiko Hashimoto for being a gorilla in both looks and brains...

Oh and there's a thread just to say bad shit about Akitoshi Saito for his part in Misawa's accident.

It's a separate post on 2ch. My point was that fans are assholes all over, so while there are fans giving them heat there are also lots of supporters on the blog and MIXI. (Apparently Mio runs the MIXI and Io the blog, but Mio posted her message on the blog explaining they weren't there because she's the elder sister.

Though a couple of people were saying they were selling their underwear ("bra & panties") on Ringstars.jp.

I of course went running to see!  *whee

And it was them selling  bathing suits from an old photo shoot...the photos I posted.

It's a shame. I do question the Shirai's thought process at this time. It's like....you're being dogged by everyone for doing AV and the whole Makehen Scandal............and you still sell  your soiled garments for money?

Either way, as long as Io keeps being her awesome spot monkey self, I'll still <3 her.

Yeah, it's not like selling ring gear. This is them selling stuff that has touched their no-no places. They might as well start selling their tampons or soiled thongs.

I still love them, and don't really think badly of them, I'm just saying it's not the best idea to do something like this when you've still got heat with the fans.

Fetish for school girls isn't just a japan thing.

Though the pillows shaped like a woman's legs reminds me of Quagmire's air bags. *haha

And it's not like every japanese person is a super pervert. It's natural a lot would get angry. Plus, even some of them who would buy them are probably the same ones getting on their moral high horse just to insult the girls for possibly being accessories to extortion. Plus, it's one thing to have a random pair of legs, but selling your used bikinis to panty sniffers for that much money.......I mean the kind of perverts who'd pay for that are...... *barf

You are absolutely right, sir. But have you been to Japan? I have. Its much more prevalent and accepted then say North America.

So the Stupid Sisters have found a market for their underwear. Hardly a crime, but nasty nevertheless. I personally would never buy used underwear at a ridiculous price, even if it came from Uhura from Star Treck '09.

Besides those bathing suits that Mio & Io are selling were purchased for a RINGSTARS photo shoot. So for all we know hawking them was part of the deal.

From Hailey

"The Shirai's are fine, I dont see any drama.Havent seen Mio yet but Io is on the up, she has too much talent for fans to not respect her. Srsly loved her and Natsuki. The whole thing was seemingly blown out of proportion. From what I understand Hash was acquitted, along with 2 other male MAKEHEN wrestlers. I think it was kinda a mix up, but I dont know, I just come here and wrestle =)"

Screw MAKEHEN or whatever it's called.  The girls will be fine, either they freelance or sign with a promotion.  I think it's unfair to judge the girls based on what they sell or their groping videos.  Look at it like this who would you rather be?  The girls selling their beachwear or the guy who's going to sit alone, in the darkness doing awful things to them and himself *hot? That being said, I love what they can do in the ring (especially Io, she's the bee's knees) and what they do out of it ain't no problem to me.


That icon looks way more dirty then I thought it would.  Great.

http://www.rampageprowrestling.net/

Micah Taylor and Tracy Taylor used to live in Hawaii and wrestle for HCW, which ZERO1 had an agreement with. They are married and moved to Atlanta.

So the FOS office is still in contact with Micah (who was "SANDY BEACH" in ZERO1 for a short time). Io is going to stay with them. She is studying English but will need to "carry a dictionary."

I think October or so.

I don't think it's permanent or anything. Most likely one of those "goes to US, comes back to pin veterans/get a push" thing.

Io is seen as very special. Being a natural athlete like Ayumi or Tomoka is one thing; being a exceptionally gifted athlete that can do a standing vertical leap to the basketball rim is a whole other thing...

Maybe I'm dumb, but I'm not finding anything on that website talking about Io.  I did see that their "hottie" division includes not only Tracy Taylor, but also Sumie Sakie.  If Sumie is involved with this promotion, she'd probably be a big help for Io adjusting to America. 

I bet "Isis", with the kayfabed height of 6'10, is probably some ex-basketball player who's more like 6'2.

Both Io & Mio are in the next Fukemen show on 9/20.

They bought their masks somewhere else this time, not where Io got her first mask.

Also, Mio drew the designs. Mio's mask is a fox (Kitsune) and Io's is a racoon (Tanuki) which  are Japanese legend counterparts.

It's not even that. Wrestling fans are collectors like most fans. At the most basic a wrestling fan is going to have a ton of DVDs. But then there's t-shirts, action figures, video games etc. etc.

I was discussing this with a friend of mine recently, as if you were to go in to my apartment there's no way you'd be able tell I'm a wrestling fan at all. I learned back in my teenage years buying comics that while it's fun and all, next thing you know you have like 10 huge boxes of comic books. So all my hobbies since then, like pro wrestling, I try to buy as little merch as possible so it doesn't get out of control.

But people who collect replica wrestling masks, it might be the most expensive type of pro wrestling hobbiest. 1 mask can be $1,000.

Because married men stray just for the sake of straying.  See:  Hugh Grant, Jude Law, Balthazar Getty, my dad...  A ring on the finger, regardless of the awesomeness of the woman it's intended to bond to, is no guarentee of fidelity.  To think otherwise is plain naive

Yup, it can get boring doing the same person even if you truly love them. If Jude Law can cheat on Sienna Miller with his homely nanny and Hugh Grants can cheat on Elizabeth Hurley with that tranny looking mother fucker, anyone can cheat on anyone.

The girl in my "Uncle Oni" sig is Rika Ishikawa...she's the leader of V-U-Den, which is a jpop idol group under the Hello! Project.  It was made as a joke by one of my "Nieces" in the H!P community because I can't stand her, to the point where I call her Ickykawa!

Mio's Step=up enzuigiri is her only finisher (that I know of) and Io does the running SSP.  I think that the Purple Flash is the name of the sisters' tag finisher which is an assisted tornado DDT (but don't quote me on this, I could be wrong)

As much as I'm a wota mark for the Shirai sisters, they're nowhere near the level of Kana and Nanae...not yet anyways.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai

I think you're right but that's normal io is 18 years old and mio 20 years old.Kana is 28 and nanae more than 30.
Nevertheless,i have never seen kana and nanae as a team and maybe they are not good as a duo.The shirai are a real good tag team.Ok,they are not at the level of the young bucks,but they're good.

Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on November 06, 2009, 07:06:07 AM

Io posted that she's been going the gym regularly for the first time in a long time. The gym has a pool so Io figured since she's a member she'll go swimming.

Then she realized she has no bathing suit, having auctioned off her only one. So she dug out her school bathing suit and put it on, only to find out that it no longer fits because of her ring physique.

The above is a censored photo she posted.

Io isn't a lesbian. She is dating KAZMA from K-Dojo, who last I checked is a pretty manly looking dude.

Anyway let's catch up with the Shirai Shimai. They're still wrestling and getting lots of bookings despite the end of MAKEHEN. Mio is still wrestling though many wondered if she'd quit once her MAKEHEN contract ended. Io is still viewed as a prodigy, and she LOVES pro wrestling.

GAMI has been using them alot on WAVE and the Osaka shows she's been running.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/s48917/imgs/2/5/2543d446.jpg)

I'm guessing because Kana is from Kansai area, they've been hanging out with her.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/a/3/a3fcb9e4.jpg)

On Hikaru Sato's show they participated in a "Girls School CosPlay" match. All the girls involved wore costumes you'd find at a girls school.

Mio wore the sailor dress.
Io wore the gym clothes  *Oni*
Apple Miyuki wore the bathing suit
and Kana I think was the sexy teacher...

Joshi girls don't usually reveal if they're married or have boyfriends so their fans don't disappear. This is something they learned from the old days, as when girls would announce they're getting married their popularity would often plummet.

Settle your tea kettle bro. I'm not going to change my signature just to keep you from getting blueball'd. I mean...I don't ask people to not post Mio or a certain other "idol's" pics because I think they're fugly. If you want to fap to Mio watch the Shirai Sisters porn, keep it off the boards, because I don't want to have to mop that mess up like I was the Janitor at an AKB48 concert.

i did not understood why there were so much images of hama and it was boring to me to see him everywhere but i did not insulted anyone so it s not cool that you talk me like that(i hate people who lack respect to the others).

That not give them any charisma.It looks like they gonna try to have a medal at the olympic games in wrestling,but not have a pro wrestling match....
If they were all young lions it'll be fine as it would be a little like the black trunks in njpw for the beginners,but they're not all rookies.

She posted another photo of her wearing Ohka's costume explaining that all the girls wore Ohka's costume since people thought it was actually a new costume for Io. She said when she first put it on, GAMI was laughing and saying it doesn't really suit Io at all. When Io posted the photo on the blog she thought she was going to get similar comments from her readers, bashing and jokes etc.... instead like here everybody thought it looked good on her. She thanked everybody who commented that she looked very pretty wearing it.

She said she'll keep that in mind the next time she makes a new costume.

She also said she's envious of the length of Ohka's arms & legs....

Mio & Io are still rolling along, getting booked in WAVE & NEO and other assorted places.

But of course they're also on the 4/29 VADER TIME show at Shinjuku FACE.

They'll be facing each other that day in celebration of their 3rd Anniversary in a match titled "Kyuukyoku no Shimai Taiketsu Sisters War." It's a no time-limit, no count-out, no DQ singles match.

Also, Io turns 20 on May 8th. 20 years old is the age in Japan where you're allowed to drink and are considered an adult.

They're having her birthday party at DDT's DROPKICK bar on May 7-8 as the party will run from 10PM to 4AM the next day.

It seems other than selling some food Io made and photos, merch etc. there's not additional entry fee. They'll toast Io at 12:00AM obviously and fans bringing presents is OK!

 *approve

Wow I hope we get to see photos from this, I wonder if Io will get totally smashed!


They're also selling their costumes from the Hikaru Sato show when Io wore gym clothes and Mio a sailor dress.

Apparently they also went together someplace to get new ring costume made.

Those pics are from a Purikura photo booths. The booths come with various packaged effects, lettering etc, you can do to your photos before printing them.  They're really popular among Japanese girls/women, and you can also make stickers to put on cellphones etc.

Also, I've known several Japanese girls who wear colored contact lenses because 95% of their eyes are black.

Io posted an update to the Shirai Shimai blog.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/0/4/040be286.jpg)

She got a new kitten. She said it had a "cat cold" and is having some trouble finding the litter box, but it's mischievous and she thinks a "tom boy."

She had aksed her blog readers to help with a name and decided on "Mishiro" (White Beauty). She said that Mishiro is so white that photographs of her don't come out so well.

She also was a little concerned because she lost her PSP recently. She said that a fan had given it to her as a present and she really loved it. (She apologizes to the fan)

She wondered if maybe somebody stole it, and is scared there might be some personal information on it that can be used. She had not only bought SKYPE minutes on it, but had 3000 yen for the PSP download store, so she had  put in her credit card number to get them.

She's hoping that the person who took/finds it can't access that information. She's asking her readers if they know if that's possible.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/f/2/f2ee781d.jpg)

She also went to an art show of Tamara de Lempicka in Shibuya on her day off and really loved it.  Tamara de Lempicka was a women art deco painter from Poland who died in 1980 at 82. If you remember, before she fell into pro wrestling Io was going to be an illustrator and art student and was a pretty good artist for a High Schooler.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamara_de_Lempicka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamara_de_Lempicka)

Also her birthday party is tomorrow night at DDT's DROPKICK Bar in Shinjuku, so she's excited for that.

Her upcoming schedule:

5/5 : New FMW
5/7 : Birthday Party @ DROPKICK
5/8 : T-1
5/9 : LEE "Beginning"
5/15 : Furusato Pro
5/20 : ZERO1

"Mr. X & Mr. XX, we've never heard of this tag team! They say they are sibling hunting, well we are also on a hunt. They better each wear an athletic cup so they don't get "crushed" themselves!!! We don't plan to lose, and we hope the fans support us in the future."

Looks like they are carrying on the fox and racoon imagery from their lucha masks into their new outfits on the short/skirty bits.  I've seen Io wearing a bad ass white short-shorts outfit in clips but not fully that I think I wouldn't mind seeing more of as well.

The name actually might be "Three Tails" since Kana explains the origin on her blog.

3つのしっぽという意味合いです (3tsuno shippo toiu imiai desu)

"shippo" means "animal tail" and "imai" is like "implied"

華名 『猫』
イオ 『タヌキ』
ミオ 『キツネ』

Kana "Neko" (Cat)
Io "Tanuki" (Racoon)
Mio "Kitsune" (Fox)

So Kana is the cat and obviously all 3 animals have tails...

I think there might be an anime, video game influence.

Tanuki are legendary Japanese mythology, same with kitsune. You'll often see Tanuki statues in rural, and suburban Japanese gardens.

You can learn more from the wikipedia pages

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanuki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanuki)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsune (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsune)

Io & Mio came up with those names for the MASKED MANIA shows as their masked identities.

I was talking about the name "Triple Tails" being video game related as the word "テイルズ" (tails or tales) brings back lots of references to manga, anime & video games.

There's a game developer called Traveller's Tales which used to develop for Sega I think. Is that where the references come from?  I know there's probably a lot of manga references, but one I can think of is all the tailed beasts in Naruto.  And Neko for Kana?  Isn't cat Emi's gimmick? :)

Kana's mega toned down her style, as we saw in that Kana Produce video. Also I suspect you're drunk :p

Heh, 3-4 mins of highlights in 1 youtube highlight video (whear to me it looked like she wasn't holding anything back) and you've allready changed your tune on Kana?

Even her match with Kagetu was safer than normal Kana. It reminded me when she faced Minori Makiba, where she didn't use kicks at all since she wasn't down for that style.

She also looked a lot safer in the opening match of that show, and to be honest Meiko seemed to be giving it a lot harder and Kana looked to be holding back.

I'm not gonna rule out just being a mark and seeing what I want to see but oh well. I've also been watching a lot of Battle Arts so I'm more used to that style and whatnot.

All the Kana hate is just a joke at this point. Anyone who wants to complain about stiffness in Joshi should watch WWE or something else instead. The same people complaining about Kana mark out over Aja Kong and other's stiffness.

Shibata was awesome and hating Kana because she is stiff was a popular trend around here.

I'm only talking about issues with her stiffness. Who you like or don't like is your opinion.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 08, 2010, 07:39:31 AM
I never hated her. I didn't like how unsafely stiff she was being, to where she was knocking out girls left and right.

And like I said, I only saw 2 people who hated her. Everyone else either didn't like how stiff she was being or were tired of people overrating her.

There's a difference between being stiff and being dangerous. Kurihara, Aja, & Tamura get loved because their stiffness is safe and they only bring it to girls who can take it or try to stiff them too much. Kana, Hotta, & Shibata get complained about because they'd just murder anyone just on a whim.

Like I said, Kana's seemingly toned down herself so she's completely cool in my book now. I also wonder if maybe her troubles with Passion Red had anything to do with her being too stiff...like if she was taking out frustrations like Arisa did when she became too stiff and stopped being awesome later in her career.

Anyway, since this is the shirais thread, they had a really nice match at the Autumn Carnival, and Mio is finally really impressing me and making me think she won't quit wrestling like a lot of people I've talked to have thought.

Who has she knocked out left and right?

How many people has Hotta or Kana hurt? There's Shibutani and then who else? I've asked this multiple times and no one has been able to give me an answer.

Please, if you are going to make statements, be able to back them up.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 08, 2010, 09:27:41 AM
See: TamuKuri...Tamura's not exactly the best seller, so her having to be dragged up makes it pretty safe to assume she was legit knocked out.

It's not necessarily about immediate injuries(though Hotta kicked in Asari's teeth, despite ASARI being a relative rookie and obviously not down with that style), but Concussions are nothing to fuck around with. Who's to say Hotta didn't help contribute to Plum's death with those ridiculously stiff kicks? And Hotta was beating up Aja so bad that Hotta made her own palms start bleeding.

And it's not just about injuries.....it's being forced to work an incredibly painful style when you're not down with that.

And Kana's looking to have toned down her style. I haven't seen her do a lot of the headkicks we're used to, and she did all submissions in her match with Kagetu. i dunno if it was finally getting free of Nanae or accidentally hurting  Shu, but she's also visably happier in matches and looks less hateful.

It's been said before me, by Oni(a legit wrestler with actual experience on this stuff and he also agrees about Kana's stiffness), and I merely implied it might've had something to do with it. And Plum's death came from head injuries.....IE: Hotta kicking her head in a billion times. It may have not been directly from Hotta, but it certainly didn't help.
Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 09, 2010, 08:04:35 PM
Also might I add Shibata KILLED a guy with that style. Yet he still continued with it. Luckily Kana stopped after only injuring Shibutani. Mikiko Futagami had a hateful lariato style that was very similar to how Kana used her kicks. She killed Emiko Kado. Unforunately she then went total comedy as opposed to Kana who's merely toned down her head kicks and such. I hope you don't think I still don't like her style, because as I said, Kana's toned it down to where she's epic sauce again and I can't wait to get my Kana fix.

I will say Shibata was awesome...but only because it was hilarious to watch veterans pwn the fuck out of him every time he got in the ring with them. Even 50+ year old Tenryu kicked his ass all over the place  *haha

BUT ANYWAYYYYYYY:
From the Ringstars DVD Magainze, Io seems like massively smart. Like one of the more intelligent joshi wrestlers ever.

"toussu" or tooth.

Io was having a pain in her back tooth. So she got her friend to take a look with a mirror.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/c/6/c620f927.jpg)

It looked like a cavity to them. Io went to the dentist the next day and was told it's not a cavity but her wisdom tooth coming in and causing pain and swelling.

She was very excited about this, as she talks about how she's only 20 and having her wisdom teeth come in (and be extracted) at such an age is good. She says what those of us who are old enough to have them have heard - "get them out because they press on your teeth an screw up alignment & they're impossible to keep clean and will get cavities" etc.

She talks about when she was younger and would get sad that her favorite shoes would suddenly not fit her feet from a growth spurt.

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/d/5/d57cc93f.jpg)

This is her at the dentist waiting for her mouth to numb from anesthesia.

T-1 is a smallish one off group (Think the NewAJW group that uses JWP and WAVE wrestlers).  They've been around since 2005-2006.  The group is pretty much sleaze.

Yeah, gotta agree with Rob on this one.
In hindsight i've seen a few people over the years say they felt uncomfortable going back and watching the Plum/Hotta match knowing what eventually happened but that's usually as far as it goes. To attempt to directly or even indirectly link the two is one of biggest stretches i've ever seen though.

Plum died because she was wrestling when she wasn't in any condition to really be doing so. The office & the other wrestlers knew she'd been having some problems leading up to that but I don't think anyone was fully aware of just how bad it had gotten and from what's been reported, Plum herself never complained that much to anyone in power about her health out of fear that they might ask her to retire.

I honestly don't know who you could say is responsible in the end but IF you can blame anyone for what happened to her, Yumiko Hotta kicking her a few times over 3 years earlier has to be WAY down the list.

I don't know any specific details of what happened to Kado & who in that tag match delivered the move that caused her brain injury. As far as I know the match never made tape unless they just showed briefe highlights during a news clip or tribute ceremony or something and nothing i've ever found in English says anything besides that she died of head trauma but i'll still say it's pretty unfair and also a giant stretch to say what happened was more then a freak accident and a result of Gami (who was never anywhere as bad as Kana in the stiffness dept) being unsafe or reckless in the ring.

Title: Re: "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" Mio and Io Shirai
Post by: Sabrina the Teenage Cracker on June 12, 2010, 10:24:30 PM
Quote
Kado had her first match in February, 1999 at the ARSION First Anniversary Show at Tokyo's Korakuen Hall in front of 1550 people, losing to Aja Kong. Kado went on to wrestle fourteen more matches in her short career, losing every one. In her last match, on March 31, 1999, she teamed up with Michiko Omukai to face the team of Mariko Yoshida and Mikiko Futugami. About 22 minutes into the match she suffered a serious injury from a blow to the head, later discovered to be a sprained acute membrane in her brain. Kado was rushed to a hospital in Fukuoka, where she died from internal bleeding on April 9

And remember how GAMI completely changed her style after that despite how amazing she was as Futagami.

With Hotta, I'm talking more about...that could of been what SHOULD have ended her career, but instead she decided to keep with it out of fear of losing her spot. I'm not saying Hotta deserves to be completely blamed for it or even share more than a dime of the fault(Oni does, but that's him not me) but if she hadn't been like that you never know. We can't say how much of an effect those kicks had on her, but they can't have helped.

And wrestling's fake, so why do we have to knock the fuck out of people? That's what MMA is for. If you're facing someone who's ok with getting that stiff that's fine..but stiffing everyone as hard as you possibly can seems so reckless ESPECIALLY after all the deaths in 09....and even Chris Candido's this year.

But like I've said over and over I"m cool with Kana's style now since it seems she's lightened up. If I'm wrong, then that sucks, but I'll try to stay positive.

I kinda avoided the jailbait twin for reason purely my own. Mainly I didn't like Mio. But I can't front, they're getting to be pretty good. Io, in my opinion, has it. She gets pro-wrestling and in a few years will be dynamite in the ring. Pure Dynamite. Mio's getting a lot better and I think that's due to Kana. After watching her match with Kana (thanks ELPS) I was very impressed. Mio's getting a good hang on the shoot-style.

Triple Tails held an event/press conference in Suidobashi today at CHAMPION, one of the puro shops there.

They announced their first stand alone show will be on 8/22 at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring and is called "Kemono Matsuri" or "Beast Festival."

They also will be returning to CHAMPION on 7/11 for a meet-and-greet in their summer kimonos.

kimono, glasses, suits ... they still make Maxim look bad with their hawtness.

Thanks for the heads-up, lucky...I added Io to my followers list & tweeted her, "Konnichiwa, Io-san...I'm a big fan of you & Mio. Happy to see Kana join you & Mio as "Triple Tails"...Ganbatte!"

She replied, "Very nice Japanese!! thank-you"

I kinda miss them, but really the only one who needs them is Kana anyway since she uses so many punches and backfists.

I wish the shirais would have gotten their skirts on opposite sides of each other.

The Sisters have been booked for the 8/6 DDT Shin-Kiba 1st Ring show.

Mio Shirai & Io Shirai vs. Michael Nakagawa & Kenny Omega

This will be good exposure to a different fanbase. I know Io posted photos of the Ryokgoku show on her blog and said she went to the show with the locker room after WAVE.

Who else was in this match? Looks great. I really believe in Io. I think in a few years she might be on the same level as Kurihara, Destroyer Matsumoto and Kana. She kinda reminds me of Owen Hart, in that she absorbs the game so quickly. I remember watching tapes of Owen in his early years and he was so good so quick I was just kinda in awe of him. Io has that quality in my eyes.

Io tweeted that the Osaka show they're doing today will be "...the last before the indefinite Mexico expedition."


I didn't know she's going to Mexico? When did that get revealed?

"indefinite?"

I'm guessing she's going where Hailey Hatred works?

EDIT:

Okay I scanned their blog for Mexico and I found that they're going to AAA on 9/1...

It seems that the Shirai's announcment about going to Mexico has taken people by surprise, especially that they announced it like a week before leaving.

Koda wrote that it could be anywhere from 3-4 months and he hopes they'll come back for the close of NEO.

He is also interested, as most are, what Io will be like after being immersed in lucha libre for such a long time.

Yeah it's funny because they've been talking about this.

This color is their natural hair color. They both were born with black hair.

They've both dyed the shit out of it through their life as is normal for the ladies.

But EVERYBODY hates it. Japanese fans, gaijin fans.

Io just tweeted that the Shirai's Mexico trip departure has been postponed until 9/14 due to injury.

Io is still resting her knee. She said she's been idle so has instantly gained weight. This is how she explains it:

"Because I cannot walk, of course exercise is not possible → Because exercise is not possible, I'm stressed → I'm stressed so I eat → So I get fat"

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/7/2/7222f012.jpg)

Io went to WAVE and titled this post "DOUBLE"

"Since I dyed my hair black, at the WAVE events I am mistaken for Shibutani constantly."

She said she remembers way back when she wrestled for JD Star she was often confused with Shu and also Fuka.

"I wonder are we so similiar..."

She then praises Shu and says the photo is an alter-ego shot.

About a week or so too late, but it's "Humble Neighborhoods" by Pink.
Humble Neighborhoods (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE730RWnqcI#)

Took me a while to figure it out as well, I don't remember how I stumbled across the song, but I felt so dumb afterward because it's obvious Pink.

I really look forward to seeing the Shirai sisters.  They've got a great look to them, and being mentored by Kana can only help them.  They show a lot of promise, and I'd love to see them make it big in America some day.

DDT Dramatic Fantasia #286 is out now, which is a clip show of their seven-day Beer Garden event.

On the show, it featured the Shirai Sisters against Michael Nakazawa and Kenny Omega, in a match of the guys' choice.  Turns out they picked a "Baby Oil" match.

*Io hits a fantastic Tornado DDT off her sister's shoulders.
*Mio gets tortured (?) by Michael and Omega in the picture I'm posting below.
*Both teams use the "Baby Oil Mist".  Nakazawa actually catches the baby oil that Io spits out on him, and spits it back in her face.
*Mio loses her leather top sometime during the match and is down to a sports bra.  By the end of the match, Io is having a hard time keep her top on as well.
*Kenny Omega wants to strip naked for the sisters, but NAKAZAWA stops him.  As he's turned around, the Shirai Sisters take Michael down and strip him naked.

Sadly, it's only a two minute clip of a 21 minute match.  ):

And this image pretty much sums the match up.

Yeah, I mentioned that.  I heard somewhere that Omega was gay, but his boner says otherwise.

I wonder if it's possible to buy a DVD of this night's event?  I totally would, for that match alone.  Also note that Kenny Omega has lost his Wrestling tights, his pads, both boots, and one sock.

Kana posted that she went with the Shirai Sisters to Narita Airport to see them off to Mexico. She said they're covering their faces because they're in long distance travel mode with no make-up. The 2nd Photo is them entering the terminal to go to their gate.

I just talked to Kenny Omega about getting a DVD of the show the Sisters were on from the Beer Garden shows.  Here's what he said:

Sadly, the Beer Garden events run low on their priority list. They film them half-heartedly to have on file, but not with the intent to have a good production of it. Samurai TV, however, had a camera crew there (on top of DDT's guys), so there's a chance that the show in it's entirety exists (and in high quality).
If I can trace their version down, and it's better than the wonky version I have - I'll let you know!

I'm am totally willing to buy any sort of DVD that Kenny digs up from Samurai, rip it, and share it with you guys.  He's got his own copy of the event, but like he said before, it's just clipped and poorly edited.  He said it's really not that much different than what we saw on Dramatic Fantasia.

Io & Mio are in Mexico.

Io posted it was a long 17 hour flight, and it's Mexican Independence Day so many stores and restaurants are closed. She also said that because of the partying "...public order is at it's worst" and there are throngs of people in the street.

She also said not only does she have jet lag, but she has culture shock.

Ayumi said she actually knew about the water thing and made sure to not get ice cubes in her drinks and brushed her teeth with bottled water.

She wrote on her blog that it was meat she ate that made her sick.

Update on the DVD:
Kenny is having problems getting hold of a tape of the show.  Most of the reasons being, he is foreign and isn't a permanent resident of Japan.  He's going to try asking other people on the roster if they can get a copy.
Quote
I wanted to send a quick update to say that I haven't forgotten about that DVD.
I should have explained this earlier, but of course, to get it, I have to be in Japan. Right now, I'm back in Canada so I can't do too much on my end.
The good news is that I have Nakazawa on the case and hopefully by next week, I'll have good news to share.
Please be patient!

I don't know what Mio is drinking in that picture, but it looks ridiculously tasty.

Apparently Mio & Io are in Mexico City, not out in AAA with Hailey Hatred. Hailey is booked in Japan.

They've been vacationing and doing some practice...they did come in contact with Ayumi and RINGSTARS in Mexico according to all their blogs.

Another quick update with Omega, he's going to Japan soon for some DDT taping (And I guess a short tour with other promotions) and might be able to get his hands on the DVD then.  I'm not sure how well the deal with Nakazawa went, but I'm guessing "Not too well"

If he can pull this off you should all buy Kenny Omega merch, I know I sure am.  I'll add it to my collection of Kota Ibushi T-Shirts I never get the chance to wear, since there's no decent independent wrestling in West Virginia.

Little catch-up with the Shirai Shimai. They don't do much blog updating and Io will fire off a few tweets every few days with a little information.

She did have a good story on the blog recently. Takashi Sugiura from NOAH came down to Mexico, I'm guessing for a show, I don't know haven't followed much NOAH lately. He had a handler, camera crew and excess hangers-on with him.

So Sugiura's in Mexico, the Shirais are in Mexico and they're Japanese so they go out drinking. So they're drinking in the bar and a quarrel breaks out. According to Io "20 cops" ran into the place and somebody pulled a gun (I don't get what she's saying, she keeps refering to I think the perp as "Anchan"..)

Regardless, the second she saw the guns come out, she said she jumped behind Sugiura and "...pretended to be invsibile."

"Sugiura-san, sarigenaku tate nishite sumimasen deshita."

That is "Mr. Sugiura, I'm sorry for so casually making you a human shield."

She said Sugiura himself was a little shell shocked from the cops and guns, and only 10 minutes later exclaimed:

"Mekishiko saiko-------!!!!!!"

(Mexico is crazy!!!!!!)

Here's a pic of him after the incident:

(http://livedoor.2.blogimg.jp/shirai_shimai/imgs/3/5/350beade.jpg)

She said it's funny because in Japan there really would be no way she'd get to meet a Pro Wrestling NOAH wrestler, but in Mexico they'll go out drinking easy.

(I guess Io doesn't know that Pro Wrestlers can come-and-go at Korakuen Hall no problem.)

"It was a great memory!"

Also, her and Mio did their first AAA try out against the Apache Sisters. The AAA President watched their match, and she says though they lost the match she thinks the President thought they were good.

She added that WEEKLY PRO sent a reporter to cover it, so there should be some print about it.

Assumably, a few Mexicanos were still celebrating their Independence Day at the bar that night. I still get a crack at Io using Sugiura as a "human shield".

Out of topic: Is Sugiura still the GHC Heavyweight Champion, or has Akiyama regain it?

Mexico City

Speaking of Mexico City, Io tweeted about an email sent to her by the Japanese Embassy warning her of:

"the drug war, gun battles, grenades, garroting and abduction."

It says "please be careful to the fullest."

怖すぎ (Kowasugi = very scary)

But she adds an LOL at the end.

Kenny said he'd be able to get the DVD next week, and then he'd send it via mail.  I'd say in about two or three weeks, I'll have a copy if everything goes okay.  Here's what Kenny sent, if anyone's curious.

I have good news. Samurai TV has been great to deal with and they are making me a dvd of the match. DDT has a Korakuen Hall event in a week, so I`m hoping that they drop it off then and I can give it a look.
I`m keeping my fingers crossed that it`s good quality!!!
Please wait just a liiiiittle while longer

He's just as interested in getting a copy of the event too, it seems.

Mio Shirai teamed with Melissa (!) on yesterday's AAA TV taping, facing Esther & Cynthia Moreno.  She beat Esther with an Enzugiri.  She's going by the name Kitzune Nanoko (or Nanuko, I haven't figured out which).

Hoping maybe the reason they didn't use Io, is because they want her as a face, and if so...Melissa vs Io?!  *omg *approve She could even do some of the stretches she did to Mschif!

Do Japanese wrestlers typically think Mexico is filthy because of how it looks compared to how Japan looks and the social freedom etc.,? Kinda funny cause Japanese wrestlers almost always go over in Mexico.

Wait. That photostream has La Parka vs LA Park? Mio was on that card? Sweet. They've moved up from being booked in indies. Edit: okay it's not THE match, it's a tag with Parka original being all crazy and shit.

No, they think it's ghetto because it kind of is. Driving to Philly once, a certain Japanese noted all the trash blowing around the highway and on the side of the road and said it reminded him of Mexico.

Wow, Mio really turned up her tempo in this match more than usual, and I say this as a compliment. If anything, the Shirais' Mexico excursion is sure to benefit both sisters in terms of workrate and toughness, qualities of which Io already have in spades whereas Mio, while incredibly improved this year, has just started to develop. Another asset the sisters may attribute from the trip is tag team continuity. Just imagine Shirai Shimai pull out some rudo antics with double teaming and such.

Ganbette, ne! (I sound like a complete mark right now.)

If he had a store, I would be begging you all to buy T-Shirts, but he said he doesn't feel the need to sell himself out like that for merchandise sales.  I actually had to convince him to let me buy a T-Shirt from him.

Super nice guy.

How do you pronounce their names properly, if I may ask?

and is "Sexy Purple Thunder Sisters" actually the name of their tag team? lol

And then whose Triple Tails? Sorry to ask some obvious questions.

I liked Io when she was heavier. For some reason I didn't care too much for her when became more slender like Mio, didn't suit her and took away from her uniqueness in the sister unit.

Mio is pronounced me-oh

Io is pronounced ee-oh

If you are wondering about their surname that is She-rye. 

Dude, if you've read any of the thread for the sisters and Kana then you should know who Triple tails are (hint hint). 

And Luckycleareyes coined the SPTS  name on the board.  Don't think its official.

Mio has gone from being next generation Takako to next generation Kaoru!

And Io looks to be in good shape, not fat. (Funny you can see yen stuffed in Mio's shirt. I guess no pockets...)

Both look chubbier, but that's compared to their stick thin Kat Moss-esque figures, so it's not like they're huge or anthing. Io already has streaks back in her hair. Makes me wonder if they only went jet black to not stand out in mexico due to how dangerous it is.

I liked the masks and gear from Mexico. I thought Io was going to benefit the most out of the Mexico excursion, but it seems like Mio really expanded her repertoire. She seems to have better timing and more charisma.

I really thought that the hair thing had to do with playing up their Japanese-ness.  I can imagine some or one of the promoters asked them to do it.

Io posted on her blog that she and Mio went snowboarding at the Naeba Prince Hotel in Niigata. It appears to be a popular ski destination.

Io said though she owns a snowboard, because of being busy this is the first time snowboarding in 3 years.

Their older sister also had a baby, so they're Aunts now.

I know that's what he said, I was there on the board. My point is that SHIMMER is March 25, 26, and the only show that SMASH has booked in March is March 18. And I said that on the SHIMMER board over a month ago.

Oh yeah, I definitely hope they are on this one, I just didn't think it was realistic given what Prazak said. And again, I meant Dum Dum's to be playful, not bashing anyone.

Anyway, whether on this taping or on the next, I mosdef hope we get some Triple Tails Trios Awesomeness. Triple Tails vs Ninjas & Skater would be sick. Or vs Daizee/Nakagawa/Del Rey. Or even Rajett/Lufisto vs Triple Tails

RINGSTARS announced that the Shirai Shimai with be be at the "2011 spring BBM sports card show" on 4/17 at Tokyo Dome City.

http://www.sportsclick.jp/sportscard/event/11012/index.html (http://www.sportsclick.jp/sportscard/event/11012/index.html)

It's kind of funny, because when you go to that page all the guests are baseball players and then the Shirais. I guess BBM (Baseball Magazine) figured they'd be good reps for their joshi card series. They'll be doing interviews and signing autographs.

The RINGSTARS article also says they'll be selling signed Shodai Tiger Mask & Tenryu cards.

Here's the ad from the Shirai's blog as well:

Pics from that match look awesome, Gami and Sakura pulled out all the stops lol  *haha

Those cards of the Shirais are probably special cards only for that event too, not part of the BBM 2011 joshi set. Would have loved to have been there.

I know that bottle. I don't like Gin myself, but that's my father's brand - Bombay Sapphire.

Photo by  Youji Kawauchi from a ZERO1 event. Looks like Kemeido Sun Street where S-OVATION did their USTREAM show.

Funny thing is you can see the woman in the back covering the little girl's ears to protect her from Mio's foul mouth.

"Mommy?  What's Miss Shirai saying?"  "Nothing!  You're too young to know!  I'm too young to know!"

I love that gear.

First time I've seen it, but I love the Arabian Nights vibe.

Fellow joshi fan told me that Io is leaving Triple Tails & rumor is she wants to team with Nanae Takahashi in Stardom *umm *tantrum

I'm a big fan of Io but this move makes no sense to me...and, truth is, I'm not a big fan of Nanae & see no purpose for Io wanting to team with her! IMO she could choose a better partner or branch out on her own.

Either way though, I'm still a fan of Io & wish her well in whichever route she takes...though, I'm still depressed that she's left Triple Tails *gloom

It is kind of a bummer, don't get me wrong, but it's also kind of fun to think that it might all be some insidious plot on Kana's part to infiltrate Stardom.   *bwah

Kana stated in that manifesto that unrealistic spots are hurting joshi. Maybe she forced Io out. I couldn't think of someone else better to team with than Nanae. Kana's too afraid to ever step to her, so Io will be safe.  *haha

Has Kana's "manifesto" been translated into English?  If so, where can it be found?

It'd be a bummer if Io had to depart in that manner, but I think Io left under her own accord.

Dumb question, but when are Kana and Nanae ever going to bury the damn hatchet? I still wish that match was booked, but there is too much heat and animosity between those two for any encounter to come to fruition.

Apparently during Nanae's 15th Anniversary big screen video tribute there was a clip of her and Kana, and the crowd responded to it... I didn't see what the clip was actually of...

There were two times they were going to have a match. First time Kana said no last minute at the big Kawasaki Gym show. Second time was at SMASH's IBM show or whatever the name of it was. Kana said she'd face Emi only if Nanae'd come to, but they never really continued with that and had Yoneyama team with Sakura.

A Kana/Mio vs. Nanae/Io match is one of those things that'd be great from a storyline perspective though.  Kayfabe it as Kana having kicked Io out of the group and there's a whole duality there and you could play up a deceitfulness on the part of Kana and how she cares about only herself (like "You respect and care for nobody but yourself! That's why I kicked you out and that's why you kicked out Io!"), to the point of Kana turning Io's own sister against her for Kana's own gain and you'd have a pretty awesome, hate-filled feud.

That's getting a little too far into fantasy booking territory I suppose though.

I'd rather it be plot by Kana to infiltrate STARDOM to be honest. It would be a nice feud and story to start something interesting up for the promotion. So when did this whole Io leaving Triple Tails story start? Did Io join STARDOM or is she still a freelancer?

She didn't officially join STARDOM, only appeared and asked to team with Nanae. Nanae was suspicious but Io talked her way into it. At the end of the show, Io posed with the STARDOM roster for their commemorative photo.

Looks like some reconciliation going on, as Io posted on her blog that she made a trip with her family. She posted the pic:

Were the bad feelings a result of Io's arrest at Narita International with NOSAWA in May or something else entirely? Just curious....

I read that it might have been Io dating NOSAWA in the first place, prior to the arrest which was just icing on the cake.

Yeah, Mio blogged that Io and her family hadn't spoken in over a year. There was actually a match that happened between them during that period and you can see some awkwardness and some really uncomfortable stiffness levels. Apparently the Shirai mother was a wreck watching it.

Picture of Io with Kaori Yoneyama at Mio's wedding.  I believe Io's heading over to L.A. now to meet up with the other STARDOM girls (Kairi, Mayu, Act, Chris Wolf) who are already there for STARDOM's US shows.
