More sad news coming out of Tokyo Joshi Pro in the lead-up to their next Korakuen Hall show. Azusa Takigawa has announced she will graduate from Tokyo Joshi later this year with her final match taking place on 27th October. This had been planned for around a year with Takigawa consulting with management over the decision. Talks went away when Takigawa was brainwashed by NEO Biishiki-gun and transformed into Azusa Christie. But with her persona back to normal and her memories returned, she is sticking with her plan to graduate this year. For her final appearance in Korakuen Hall, Takigawa wanted to fight Saki Akai. When Takigawa visited Tetsuya Koda in late 2014 to join Tokyo Joshi it happened around the same time when Akai won the Best Rookie category in the Tokyo Sports Awards. Takigawa was worried about entering wrestling when she was given the article about Akai winning the award. What Takigawa saw was a beautiful person working so hard on pro wrestling and she admired Akai ever since. Akai has spent all this time working for DDT instead of Tokyo Joshi so Takigawa never got the chance to wrestle her until now. Since Akai has a modelling contract with Oscar Promotion, Takigawa hopes that if she wins the match she can use Akai’s connection to get signed to the agency as a caster or reporter. She’s been working hard for the last three years so she believes she has the power to make her dream come true! While Akai has been absent from Tokyo Joshi for a long time, she’s still been paying attention to the brand and has watched Takigawa grow. She thinks Takigawa is showing great courage to graduate at this time.
That isn’t the only absence in the roster coming up. Sakisama next gave everyone the news that she will be returning to Paris after the 18th August show and will no longer be wrestling for Tokyo Joshi, for a while at least. Sakisama was already planning to leave with the rest of NEO Biishiki-gun earlier this month but she decided to stay behind for a little bit for a personal reason. She has an eye out for her upcoming opponent Hikari. She called her the “Blue Fruit” of the Up Up Girls and she wants to squeeze all the juice out of her before she leaves for Paris. Sakisama said it was inspiring to see Azusa Christie wrestle against her at the Beer Garden show. Before Christie was too dependent on her like a child but Sakisama got to see her change as they fought each other. Plus it was even a little fun, Sakisama admits.
The two teams in the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match have signed the contract to make it official. Mizuki said she has twice tried to win the belts with Maki Ito for Maki Ito. This time she has the chance to win it for herself so she doesn’t want to miss that opportunity. Yuka Sakazaki wants revenge on Reika Saiki for losing the TOKYO Princess Title to her last year. Saiki has come around on the idea of teaming with Ito for the match. She thinks having Ito as her partner raises her chances of regaining the titles she never lost. Ito describes her feelings about Mizuki joining another team being like finding out a boyfriend has found another woman. However she can use this disappointment as motivation to win the championships. Even if she fails it will be valuable experience.

The makeshift team known as the Magical Sugar Rabbits came out as the winners of the first Yeah! Metcha Tag Tournament. The big story is the day before the show, news came out that the Muscle JK Strikers vacated the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles because Marika Kobashi is not ready to return from injury yet. When Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki won the tournament today they both asked Tetsuya Koda to give them the belts and make them the new champions. Koda told them no. The belts will instead be put on the line at Korakuen Hall on 25th August. Sakazaki & Mizuki convinced Koda to put them in the match. When he did, Maki Ito came down to the ring. At first Ito was annoyed that Mizuki is going after the Tag Titles without her. But she’s willing to let that slide if she gets to be on the other team. She even knows who her partner will be, Reika Saiki! Saiki told Ito she wants to wait for Kobashi to be cleared so the Strikers can get their belts back. However Kobashi gave Saiki her blessing to go ahead because she doesn’t know when she will return to the ring. Saiki isn’t thrilled with the idea but she accepted Ito’s offer. Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Ito & Saiki for the vacant Tag Titles is now set!
The battle of NEO Biishiki-gun was tense throughout. Sakisama and Yukio Saint Laurent were careful not to make the first mistake when the match began. They both tagged out without laying a finger on each other. When Martha and Azusa Christie faced off they fought using Martha’s mop as a weapon. The match heated up to the point where Laurent took out his anaesthetics and jabbed both Sakisama & Martha in the back with them. Martha grabbed her mop and used it to great effect on Laurent. Christie gave Sakisama the Christie Agape but it only got a two count. Sakisama caught Christie by surprise with the Versailles Foot Choke. Christie had enough strength left to kick out of a Running PK but the Academy Award put her down for the count. After the match Sakisama said she now understands how Laurent got Christie to act against orders. It was all so Laurent could cut out the weak part of Christie’s heart. She is no longer weak. She is now a good woman and it is time for her to fly away. Sakisama and Martha will be returning to Paris so they can spend the rest of the summer travelling the world. It was time for them to go and leave Christie by herself. Christie began to cry because she is all alone. She cannot do anything on her own.
Suddenly a voice called out to her. It’s Nonoko! She told Christie she is not alone. Everybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro is there to support her. Nonoko reminded Azusa that she was the No. 1 Announcer in Tokyo Joshi. She also brought up Konsho-gun and she handed Azusa an issue of Zexy Magazine. Azusa remembers she wants to get married as an announcer! There were celebrations all round until Nonoko accidentally hit Azusa in the head with the magazine. When she came too her first words were “Where am I? Who am I?”
Thankfully her memories came back to her at the end of the show. She reintroduced herself as Azusa Takigawa, a 30 year old woman who aspires to be an announcer. Rika Tatsumi pointed out that Takigawa turned 31 last month. Takigawa doesn’t remember that so she’s still 30.

-. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Hikari defeated Marika Kobashi by Forfeit.
1. 2 Vs 3 Handicap Match: Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao defeated Hikari, Miu & Hinano when Misao pinned Hinano with a Rope Assisted Pin (7:56).
2. Saki-sama defeated Yuki Aino with the Versailles Foot Choke (6:11).

5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Azusa Christie with the Dragon Sleeper (10:23).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Mizuki with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (18:10).
Yuka Sakazaki used the Merry Go Round to position Mizuki for the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The Merry Go Round is a move used by Sakazaki’s twin sister Mil Clown. Sakazaki herself never used the move before today. After the main event Sakazaki said she does not want to lose this summer. She acknowledged that there are several girls missing from today’s show. That’s not good but she knows none of them wanted to miss it because everybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro fights together.
Rika Tatsumi wants to beat Shoko Nakajima in the next round for Maho Kurone. Nakajima and Kurone were supposed to have their match today before Kurone pulled out of the tournament. Tatsumi will pass on any good news from Kurone’s grave where the zombie is currently resting as soon as she hears from her.
Due to their current run of bad luck, Azusa Christie thinks NEO Biishiki-gun has become cursed somehow. She wants an investigation team to come in and er… investigate. Maybe Yuki Kamifuku is to blame.
Kamifuku tried to make Reika Saiki tired by challenging her to do squats. Saiki was able to do ten of them with Kamifuku getting a piggy back from her. Kamifuku tried to roll her into a pin afterwards but Saiki kicked out and won the match with the Jackhammer.
During the week Hyper Misao joined Makoto Oishi and Kamifuku to create a new unofficial section of the Up Up Girls called Up Up Girls (Fake). Today Misao continues to act like she is part of the group. She told everyone that she is the youngest member of the group at 17 years old and their next song will be called “Upper Hero”. She started to dance and was about to sing when Hikari, Miu & Hinano all kicked her down. The Up Up Girls did well with the 3-on-2 advantage until Misao blinded the referee and put her foot on the ropes while pinning Hinano. When the ref regained his sight he didn’t notice Misao’s use of the ropes and counted the pin.
The complete list of 2nd Round matches are Reika Saiki Vs Hyper Misao, Miyu Yamashita Vs Nodoka-oneesan, Rika Tatsumi Vs Shoko Nakajima and Yuka Sakazaki Vs Hikari. They will all take place on 17th June in Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall.

*V1 for Muscle JK Strikers.
Two days after her 17th birthday, Marika Kobashi celebrated with a successful TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles defence alongside Reika Saiki. Kobashi said she was given a wonderful gift of being a pro wrestler. She aims to be a wrestler that suits both the championship and the Muscle JK lifestyle.
Yuki Kamifuku’s apprenticeship with NEO Biishiki-gun is already off to a bad start. First she ignored her entrance cue and appeared on the stage too early. Azusa Christie had to pull her back up the stage so they could do the team entrance properly. Kamifuku later tried to attack Yuu with a rose but was easily disposed of, leading to her team’s defeat. After the match, Kamifuku thanked NEO Biishiki-gun for making her an apprentice then announced she is leaving the unit! Turns out it wasn’t a good fit for her. Still, Kamifuku would like to hang out with them again whenever they have a tea party. Saki-sama and Christie were left stunned by her decision.
Match #4 was changed from a 3 Way Match to a Singles Match between Yuka Sakazaki and Nodoka-oneesan. The third girl Maho Kurone had to miss the show because she had a high fever.
Raku was a ball of nerves before her match with Miyu Yamashita, to the point where she was reportedly crying backstage before her entrance. However she was able to do her best and came out of it thinking it was the most fun she’s had in the ring so far.
Pro wrestling is a wonderful sport that can make dreams come true. Hyper Misao believes that and is living proof after she wrestled her inspiration Jun Kasai. Now she has a new dream to be an idol with the Up Up Girls! She convinced Miu and Hinano to dance with her while Shoko Nakajima was left confused over what to do. It was all a trick so Misao & Hinano could jump attack their opponents to start their match.

6. Yuka Sakazaki, Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita, Marika Kobashi & Rika Tatsumi when Mizuki pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special (14:47).
Rika Tatsumi had to get over her crush on Mizuki so she could wrestle her. The Ito Respect Army gave Marika Kobashi a Double DDT while Yuka Sakazaki wiped out Tatsumi & Miyu Yamashita with the Magical Girls Splash. Mizuki then pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special. After the match Maki Ito told Kobashi to get stronger for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match later this month because Ito doesn’t want to be in a boring match.
The poor referee assigned to the Maho Kurone Vs Su Yung match had his arms bitten by both at the same time. Yung hit Kurone with a rope assisted Pedigree and won with the Panic Switch. The two seemed to have patched up their differences after the match.
Yuki Kamifuku approached NEO Biishiki-gun after Match #4 asking to join the group. She thinks Saki-sama & Azusa Christie look so cool and stylish tgoether that she wants to be a part of it too. Christie was furious at the idea and thought Kamifuku was rude to ask them. Saki-sama however thought it was an interesting idea. Kamifuku isn’t at the level to join yet but she can be their apprentice for now. Kamifuku is happy with the decision. Christie is not.
Shoko Nakajima won her match with an Inverted Rings Of Saturn submission hold she calls the Unmanned Local Train Hold. It’s a Shin Godzilla reference according to the DDT English Update twitter account.
Hyper Misao told Nodoka-oneesan that she owns the patent on saying hello to the audience. Since Nodoka has been greeting the audience ever since her debut in January 2016, Misao worked out that Nodoka owes her 4,536,000 yen in overdue patent fees. However because they are friends, Nodoka only has to pay her 4,000,000 yen. When Yuki Kamifuku got in the way Misao and Nodoka worked together to get rid of her. Nodoka gave Kamifuku the Back Flip. Misao then snuck away with the win by pinning Kamifuku with the I Am A Hero. She was so happy with the win that she dropped the debt Nodoka supposedly owes her.

Today was Priscilla Kelly’s last match on her first tour with Tokyo Joshi. Hyper Misao would like to team with her again in the future.
At one point during Match #2 Mizuki & Raku pretended to sleep on top of Nodoka-oneesan. They called the move the Goodnight Express.
Maki Ito saw Saki from the Actwres girl’Z in the audience at the beginning of the show. She invited Saki into the ring and gave her an Ito Respect Army shirt, making Saki the newest member of the group.
