OJ, you may not agree with the photobook-selling aspect of joshi puroresu but let's face it that part of a promotion's source of income would be merchandize sales, and AJW and JWP obviously made a lot of money not only in selling tickets for their wrestling shows but also for their photobooks

and what made mima so appealing to men? the fact that she's so tough to acquire (men love challenges, don't they?)

Here's all I'll say about the Mima bikini n' stuff vid:

in less than one week since I've posted it, it has garnered over 6000 views, which is a first among all the vids I've uploaded to my YouTube channel since the very beginning - usually it takes a month to get at least a couple thousand, this did it in about five days, which goes to show ya, like it or not:

hot chicks=ratings.

Sorry Vamp, but apparently that's the law of the land.

I know. And I hate it but I have no choice but to live with it. ..and perhaps exploit it for my own gain. I don't make the rules/laws I just follow them.

You don't even have to be hot, just be half naked.

Gee, I didn't mean to ruffle your feathers there with the post, it's not my intent at all.  I'm a big fan of anime and I know exactly what you mean when you're referring to the "True otaku" in Japan, they are a creepy lot at times.  I've seen a couple of documentaries about the hardcore otaku, so I can see how you'd react that way.  No matter where you find yourself on this planet, though, men like hot women.  My idea with the video is to say that WRESTLERS can be hot women, not shemales, as some folks who comment on my vids refer to them.  That's all I'm trying to prove here.  So Ohtanisjacket, I see where you're coming from, and I hope you see where I'm coming from with this as well.

Oh, it was nothing personal against you.

I understand why the photo books exist. Joshi has always had a sex element to it, it came from the nightclubs after all. Personally I think Shimoda looks stupid trying to figure out what an idol should do & almost every other girl looked awkward too, but sex was part of their gimmicks.

Neverthless, so many of the girls get exoticised on this board. Shimoda is a pretty normal looking Japanese woman. Does being a wrestler suddenly make her extra sexy? That would imply that people find wrestling sexy. I don't want to start anything with anybody, I just think people get a bit carried away with saying every Joshi worker is cute.

OJ, it's a given that not every single joshi wrestler is cute. actually it worked to their advantage that each person is differently packaged with a distinct personality to boot. of course, some of them may be exoticized at one point but isn't posing in a bikini and having them sold in photobooks an obvious attempt now to attract the so called casual fans?

hey! i may be guilty at times for bashing the Divas because they're more about skin than substance. but put into consideration as well that wrestling is a business. if you can't sell moves, dome tickets or photobooks, chances are the company is going to drop you unless you happened to be the booker AND the wrestler at the same time. while girls like shimoda has the talent (heck, she can wipe out 80% of the Divas), it does not mean that there wasn't a demand for such material. Mizztrezz' video will not reach more than 6000 views if the demand doesn't exist.

it's more like striking while the iron is hot.

and yes i kind of toned down on Diva-bashing because the argument that i am a proud Cena fan is often slapped back at me

Quqte from ohtanijacket:

"Personally I think Shimoda looks stupid trying to figure out what an idol should do & almost every other girl looked awkward too, but sex was part of their gimmicks. "

First of all OJ, just because sex is a part of a joshi wrestler's gimmack does not even mean that they are good wrestlers.

Shimoda is very hot ! *blush

Joshi focus more about the wrestling than the skin.

I understand OJ's point of view about his concern that photobooks are mostly bought by creepy guys -even when there is no nudity at all or just a little bit of it-
Anyway, while I consider Mima very beautiful, I also find her awkward trying to make those sexy poses (and I hate that 90's bikini !) while clearly thinking "It's easier to deliver a death lake driver than playing the sex kitten!". Certainly it's not the intent of those photobooks/videos, but I find them quite endearing and sweet because of their naive quality and because of the slight awkwardness of those girls. Most of them are really hot, physically,  but their eyes belong more to schoolgirls than to mattress' tigers; so there is nothing sexy or erotic in those pictures, but I like them anyway ! *approve

I see NO problem with Mima posing for a photobook...or any other Joshi wrestler, for that matter!! There's nothing "weird" IMO about praising a woman's beauty AND wrestling skills, and I don't think Mima comes off as "awkward" when posing. I have the DVD of Mima's trip to Thailand, I believe, where she posed...and I thought she was fine with the posing & she's GORGEOUS *Oni*

I have Megumi Kudo's & Manami Toyota's photobooks and they are AWESOME & CLASSY, as well as, sexy...and I'm NOT a "creepy guy" *bwah

As of 8/28, it's now over 7500.  This is historic, people.

Forget the vid, watching that '96 match against Takako reminded me of what a bad worker she was. She must've had the worst strikes in the history of Joshi Puroresu. I know people love her bitchy attitude, but her work is pretty god awful.

I'll admit, I did mention in the description of the '92 match between Takako and Mima that "I dare say work-wise, this is superior to their '96 match", and I stand by that opinion, but a couple folks wanted to see the '96 one, so there you go.

She wasn't the best worker true, but she easily makes up for it with charisma.

Just to let you guys know, I have Mima's first retirement from AtoZ up on my Veoh channel.  I really didn't like the way this plays out, despite Etsuko showing up, and despite the letter from Akira Hokuto read at the beginning.  But that's just me, but you can check it out and judge for yourself.  At least Ai Fujita was there to brighten things up, and more Ai is always good, so check it out if you can.
