Jump Kick Theme of Kanako Nagatomo 永友香奈子のテーマ

classicparadise uploaded this. I'm curious; this gimmick seems like it's based on an anime similar to Space Lone Wolf.

Also was half of the second AJW Tag Team Champions with Mika Komatsu, their reign lasted just under 5 months (6/21/1986-11/7/1986). The outfit reminds me of what probably was the big mecha anime during her years, which would likely mean Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.

I loved Stardust Memory. I still think that opening is pretty good. People think I'm weird when I say it's the best Gundam OP. I just like it a whole lot.

I just think they're being fickle because it's "old".

Even though she wasn't around long, she seemed to be pretty popular...probably because she had the whole androgynous thing going on.

This is an old topic, but I hadn't seen it. She was pretty solid before her retirement. Good dropkicks and mat work. She was a bit of an androgynous idol. She even did some tv appearances later in her career. I was lucky to get a hold of her rare photobook many years back.  I should scan it. it's so classic. lol

Is it her BOY one? Please scan lol I wonder if they have her height/weight details since they're not on her wiki page. Aside from Bull, the 58' players were all quite small and Nagatomo especially, was real tiny.

Speaking of the Class of 1983...they were probably one of my favourite classes:

Bull Nakano - no explanation needed
Yumi Ogura - great midcard talent, very underrated. One of my personal faves. Red Typhoons (Ogura & Kazue Nagahori) = one of my all time fave teams.
Mika Komatsu - underrated as well, love her headbutts. Just wish there was more footage available of when she teamed with Ogura as the Calgary Typhoons.
Kanako Nagatomo - good wrestler, very popular during her short run. Operon Alliance (Nagatomo & Komatsu) were a great pair!

It's just odd that other than Bull and Hyper Cat (Ogura), class of 83 and 84 were all retired by 1990, even though they were the same age as Hokuto, Hotta etc..

 Have checked out her YouTube matches, I really like her, I like her agility, her look, her tomboy vibe...

Who would be the modern equivalent of her?

Idunno.

Tomboys don't really draw anymore as luckycleareyes once said "people want their wrestlers to look like women". ..whatever that means. It's completely ignorant of the fact that women come in ALL types. Mind numbing. ..anyway.

Because I looked at your sig I'm gonna say. ... Shyuri. Or maybe Shida. ..but Shida's tall. But she does have a rockin' tomboy vibe about her.

Truthfully, I don't care what they look like, as long as they can wrestle well. That's what matters to me.
