Here are some various blogs for fans that went to the "JOSHI 4 HOPE" show on 11/30.http://ameblo.jp/ohdehi/entry-10726457889.html
This guy got to the show late, so missed the intro and the Esui striking demonstration.
He said the Eagles Tamura match was "hot" and was impressed by Madison's body and power. He also liked the 3S vs. NEO Machine Guns match, and said there was good heat on the main event that made him interested to see what a Tomoka & Ayumi tag team would look like.http://ameblo.jp/ori2010/entry-10724796964.htmlhttp://ameblo.jp/ori2010/entry-10724828420.html
This guy did 2 posts with some nice pics and more detail.
He said the opening intro, everybody was smiling except Tomoka, who had a "severe face."
Sexy Starr has "I Love Japan" on her robe, and posed on the turnbuckle for the fans. He said he "liked the visuals" of this match, probably because of so many blondes...
He said Sexy Starr was injured during the match pretty seriously hurting her neck. He mentioned that is why she's not in the post-show photo op, which usually means a hospital visit. He added that Cherry bomb was also holding her elbow, as she iced is the rest of the night.
He was confused by the Hatred & Yoneyama team as he knows of no story line explaining their friendship.
He also was impressed by Madison Eagles, saying she was tall but also possessed a champion's "atmosphere." She and Tamura scrambled on the mat and it felt like a true competition.
He noticed Madison's tattoo on her back above the dragon. The Japanese characters for "doryoku" or "strong effort" are there so he wondered if she was a Japanophile.
He said the smile on Tamura's face after the match was huge, and so out of character many noticed it.
He also liked the 3S vs. NEO Machine Guns match, saying it was a lot of comedy but the crowd really liked it. At one point Tanny rubbed an 8x10 of Misaki in her own face. He says too much happened in the match to do an accurate write-up and everybody was laughing a lot. Somewhere the theme to "Rocky" played and Hiroyo made a comeback.
He also liked the main event, and said everybody was surprised by Tomoka's win, including Ayumi. He also said that the merchandise table was buzzing after the show and there were many SHIMMER goods available.http://ameblo.jp/y-1242/entry-10724222127.html
This fan only seemed interested in the Ayumi vs. Tomoka match, and has the photo of Tomoka from the J4H shirt as his blog avatar.
He enjoyed the main event but said the 3S vs. NEO Machine Guns match was the best match, and complained that his seat sucked as he basically saw the most of a photographer's back.http://ameblo.jp/kfujita/entry-10723164377.html
This guy was wondering why if Esui wants to do MMA, she keeps showing up around wrestling events.
He liked the TWL tag match and the "...costumes with overflowing breasts" all over the place. Cherry Bomb gets yet another "she's hot" reference here.
He was impressed by Madison Eagles ability in contrast, calling her a "tenacious champion." He said she was able to withstand or counter almost everything Tamura threw at her. He said he thinks Madison could be very popular in Japan, and that she's also got a good look.
He also enjoyed the 3S vs. NEO Machine Guns saying it was a fun style of women's wrestling. He said he's glad he got to see these two teams mix it up, but it was so good he was sad it will probably be the last time.
As for the main, he said "Ayumi's beauty is sugoi" and her athletic look along with her sturdy lower body gives her the overall impression of being very solid.
He said she and Tomoka beat each other up and communicated their feud very well.

"It was a good, entertaining show."http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/yangdusty/view/20101130/1291129922
He hasn't been to a girl's show since IBUKI ended. He's hoping this means that they're coming back under a new name and this show was a warm-up.
She didn't like the TLW tag match, saying that if Yoneyama isn't teamed with a partner who is as fast as her it just holds her back. She said the match had "bad tempo."
He dug the Tamura vs. Eagles match, saying Madison is what you'd think an "...American promotion's champ would look like." He also commented her physical look and said she "...can work the ground game properly, and her kicks are harsh too..." He said her height made Tamura look tiny but still she pulled off a nice moonsault.
He said Madison seemed formidable, and he'd like to see her face Hiroyo and Meiko Satomura. He said Hiroyo seems like the best possibility and she's a good Joshi power fighter.
He thought the 3S vs. NEO Machine Guns was fine, and felt the Machine Guns elevated 3S a lot in the match. He also commented that Misaki has show so much growth since he last saw her.
For the main he wondered how many times Ayumi & Tomoka faced each other. He liked the match though.
Apparently there were various personalities walking around, including some joshi veterans, Shuri, a few idols and Eri Mizuhara who he took a pic of.
He said for a return of 1 year and 6 months for a joshi show he had a good time.http://ameblo.jp/kash0425/entry-10723137906.html
This guy apparently makes custom masks for various shows he goes to. This one he did a nice mix of all the girls colors with the J4H on the front.
The girl's names are written in English on one side as well. Look like Shupercousin has some nihonjin competition.http://ameblo.jp/yumeca6/entry-10723127981.htmlhttp://ameblo.jp/yumeca6/entry-10723160791.html
This girl was there as a presenter to Ayumi by a sponsor before the main event, something to do with baseball. She was intimidated by the ring, since she's afraid of heights and it gave her vertigo. She took a photo of herself next to the pile of streamers after the show.
She said Ayumi unfortunately lost her match. She didn't know Ayumi previously, but was impressed by her "speed, power, and she is pretty too..."
She said though she is involved with baseball, she will support Ayumi and joshi pro wrestling from now on.http://ameblo.jp/t-0344/entry-10722971108.html
This guy didn't say much. He also took a pic of the streamer ribbons collected. I like how you can see the mix of colors for the S-OVATION girls.
He didn't say much except to say that it was a "good show."http://blog.goo.ne.jp/rossyogawa/e/ed28a83d3434cf3fcdf85f929e2ff0f0
And finally Rossy Ogawa weighs in on the show.
He confirms Sexy Starr's injury as it appears he helped with the aftermath. He said she went for a "Ultra-rana" on Hailey but there was a botch and Star landed head first on the match.
She was in pain, and they were concerned that she had a cervical vertebrae injury so they took her to the hospital. She ended up being okay, and he said it's always difficult when somebody gets an injury in a foreign country whether a Japanese wrestler overseas or a gaijin wrestler there.
He added Cherry Bomb hurt her elbow as well. He wanted to see the Eagles vs. Tamura match so bad but he missed it dealing with the injury. He commented that with so many gaijin girls on the show why were they in the same match together. He would rather had seen single matches between the 4 girls and the gaijin.
(I think Hiroyo & Misaki really wanted to face Tanny & Miyazaki in a "NEO Machine Guns" style match before their retirement, which is rapidly approaching.)
He said he has "selfish hope" that more of the SHIMMER roster travels to Japan to test the battered Japanese joshi scene.
