She appears to be a flashy dresser, which is why I asked if she was from Kyoto.

From these photos its pretty obvious that Okuda wanted to be more than the "pure athlete" that the SENDAI GIRLS were envisioned to be.

If this is her personality then she definitely was in the wrong company.

What does her new ring gear look like?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I was thinking she wanted new gear and new movez~ as Sendai was keeping her very simple and stuff.

i somewhat agree there since SENDAI has this shoot-style booking hence the absence of storylines

That's my mother you're talking about, sir!  *livid (sarcasm)

You may have a point, though. Sometimes, extensions would make one's hairstyle seem unnatural.

Ok I move this to Okuda's thread.

The questions was why did Okuda leave SENDAI GIRLS.

I found out a few interesting details but really it seems like nobody knows for sure.

Okuda didn't graduate High School. Her parents are divorced and she had no parental guidance so she quit High School and tried out for SENDAI GIRLS.

Apparently when she was out with her shoulder injury her pay was cut (not sure if this is normal, but wouldn't be surprised) so this annoyed her.

Also she had said once that she didn't like the small number of matches scheduled for SENDAI.

She also didn't like Sendai the city iteself and getting back to her hometown from there was difficult.

I also remember that time I met her at Korakuen in 2007. I asked for an autograph and she said "no sign" because they're told to not sign in Tokyo.

So I showed her the SENDAI GIRLS t-shirt I bought and she snuck into the stairwell and signed for me. She was looking around like crazy like she was doing something really bad and afraid to get caught.

So she's definitely a little rebel at heart.

Well its not a first just to name a few.
You have women like Hokuto, Masami (due to use wrestling to put food on the table as her father was a woman beater), and Chigusa that dropped from High School, Asuka dropped out from middle school but came back to finish in the early 90s. But it makes you wonder would she have said all that to Chigusa if this was GAEA.  *bwah

Interesting stuff, none of it really pointing towards some kind of strange abusive deal with Meiko that some have been theorizing because they can't forget/forgive that training video.

It actually sounds like Okuda is just generally going through a rebellious phase.

Here is what I wrote in the Shirai's thread:
No one seems to know why she left SENDAI. 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. Also, the Shirai's seem to have a good agent and I think Okuda is under the same agent, so maybe that was a factor too.

I really think you have probably answered why she left might have left. She wasn't getting many bookings, her pay was cut when she was injured, you said she didn't like the town, and she seems to have a few good friends in Tokyo like Arisa.

It's really just not a black and white situation, and I don't think you can pinpoint it to one reason.

in other words, the SENDAI system somewhat suffocated her

Or perhaps keep her grounded before she truly blossomed. I guess it was a matter of negotiation between Jinsei Shinzaki and Okuda (at least, that is what I read from Frankie P.'s blog regarding the matter). I'm pretty sure, though, that some would consider Okuda's move from SENDAI to MAKEHEN to be a bad one business-wise, but only time will tell if she can utilize on her current situation, knowing she won't have to confide to Meiko's strict regiments.

By the way, I'm not putting Satomura at fault for Okuda's departure.

ditto about putting satomura at fault regarding this
she doesn't totally own SENDAI as a fed anyway
shinzaki has power in the business as well as this is advertised as the joshi division of MPro so that joshi matches won't be fillers in their own shows anymore

my gut feel tells me that upon seeing how SPTS handlers succeeded in promoting the sisters as an idol tag team, okuda would have felt that the same publicity is applicable to her
and as lucky mentioned, when an opening came, okuda jumped on it and agreed to have her renamed as Basara

I didn't mean it was abusive in like Meiko being Chigusa or something, but I meant in sort of a nunnery keeping her restricted to being able to do very little stuff and such.

not abusive, just strict. it's like the booking makes it look like shoot-style with less gimmicks to no gimmickry at all. i mean SENDAI girls wouldn't be wearing the red uniform if the management wanted the audience to be able to tell them apart as gimmicks.
