It’s been announced today that Yuu will be leaving Tokyo Joshi Pro on 1st December to go freelance with a focus on wrestling overseas. Yuu will be wrestling on all of the TJPW shows scheduled for November but her final match for the company will be on 1/12.
Yuu had been thinking about her pro wrestling future for a while now. She enjoys it too much to consider retirement so she figured her next step would be to achieve her dream of wrestling abroad. She made the most of her time in Tokyo Joshi and thinks now is the time to look to the wider wrestling world. Yuu’s contract was up for renewal in September and she talked with management about her thoughts on the matter. They kept it secret during October because nobody wanted to take attention away from Azusa Takigawa’s graduation. Yuu is going public with the news now so she has the last month of matches to use her full power for.
Yuu’s feelings towards having more freedom in her career came out of the matches she’s had with Yuna Manase and Miyu Yamashita. When she saw Takigawa’s face during her graduation, she could see how happy she was. However, Yuu knows there are more places to go and stuff she wants to do before she considers retirement. She is excited about moving abroad although she has nothing planned as of now. She is also open to the idea of wrestling in Tokyo Joshi as a freelancer if they will allow it. There are many women in the roster she would like to have her last match against but she wants time to think about it.

Hyper Misao revealed that her match with Yuu was now a Halloween Match. Both Misao and Daisuke Kiso dressed up for it and made fun of Yuu for not knowing about it. Yuu blamed Tetsuya Koda for never telling her. Misao tried to trick Yuu with some trick or treating but Yuu ended up pinning her with a Power Slam.
Priscilla Kelly has moved on from licking Miyu Yamashita’s face to kissing her on the cheek. She ended up luring Yamashita into the corner after the champion hit her with a High Kick. Kelly climbed the turnbuckles, stunned Yamashita with a Headbutt and hit the Osteoporosis for the upset. Yamashita thought she became familiar with Kelly’s shenanigans for tomorrow but today proved her wrong. She said she will go into tomorrow’s TOKYO Princess Title match more calmly because she can’t afford to be impatient against her challenger. Kelly said by pinning the champion today she proved she can do it again tomorrow. She can be stronger than Yamashita as long as she believes it.
Raku is happy to wrestle with Azusa Takigawa a few times before Takigawa graduates from Tokyo Joshi. Takigawa says she gets a warm feeling from working so hard lately.

Yuka Sakazaki said she is looking forward to defending the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles in two weeks time. She will not lose the titles to anybody be they sisters, family, lesbians or whatever. Yuki Aino knows that it is in the ring where she and Nodoka Tenma can best demonstrate their power together. Their future will be stronger when they challenge for the titles in Kitazawa. Before then is Tokyo Joshi Pro’s return to Shibuya DESEO. Mizuki hopes to sing “Setsunairo” with Maki Ito for the first time in a while there.
Hinano started crying when Miyu Yamashita started kicking her. She wouldn’t stop until Yamashita apologised but it was all a trap for Hinano to attack when her guard was down. Hinano got some more offence in but as soon as Yamashita regained control she would go on to win the match. Backstage, Hinano said she felt the difference in her physical fitness from the last time she wrestled Yamashita. She still feels scared about taking Yamashita’s kicks but she’d rather be scared now rather than later.
Hyper Misao & Shoko Nakajima are campaigning against Azusa Takigawa’s planned graduation from Tokyo Joshi. They even set up a protest before their match that Reika Saiki couldn’t resist to join in. Takigawa got angry when they shouted about her having no boyfriend but they continued to protest while the match went on. Misao apparantly had a change of heart and offered to lose the match to Takigawa’s top rope Wedding Elbow. However Misao broke her promise by kicking out of it. Nakajima, Saiki and Takigawa all joined forces by giving Misao the 619, a Dropkick and then the Wedding Elbow to give Takigawa the victory. Both Takigawa and Misao made up after the match with a fist bump.
Yuki Kamifuku brought along the issue of FRIDAY magazine she recently posed for to proudly show off to her opponents. Yuna Manase insulted Kamifuku by asking if her photos were printed in black and white. Yuu had enough of their fighting and got involved to get the match back in track. They asked her who had the better body but Yuu’s only response was “I don’t know”. She then beat the both of them.

Today was a very important day for Azusa Takigawa. She was celebrating her third year as a pro wrestler with a big match against Miyu Yamashita. Takigawa was anticipating it so much she was annoyed that there were no cake or decorations set up to surprise her when she came out. She moved on from that and asked Yamashita to sing a graduation song with her while they held hands. That turned into an opportunity for Takigawa to blindside Yamashita with an attack but Yamashita was ready for her. The end of the match had Takigawa trying to counter the Attitude Adjustment into a Crucifix Pin. Unfortunately Takigawa wasn’t strong enough and Yamashita was able to hit the Attitude Adjustment. A few Buzzsaw Kicks and the Crash Rabbit Heat brought an end to the match.
Takigawa cried over the result and Yamashita tried to cheer her up. Yamashita doesn’t want Takigawa to graduate but she knows she won’t change her mind. Yamashita was happy to help make today memorable for Takigawa and she congratulated her. Takigawa thanked her for the match and said Yamashita will get a copy of her new gravure photobook. It’s already been paid for with a deduction from Yamashita’s wages. Takigawa then said she will look forward to seeing what Tokyo Joshi Pro will be like in 10 years, 20 years, 50 years and 100 years time!
Yuki Aino won her first match today, pinning Hikari with the Side Suplex in a tag match. Aino & Nodoka Tenma then challenged the Magical Suger Rabbits to a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match. Nodoka said that she and Aino have always had matching bags and clothes ever since they were children. Now she wants them to have matching championship belts! Yuka Sakazaki wasn’t convinced enough to give them the match. Aino admitted it is early for her to challenge for a championship but with her sister by her side she is confident they can win. Sakazaki liked what she heard and accepted the challenge.
The much anticipated match between Maki Ito and Mizuki ended without a winner as the 15 minute time limit expired. Ito grabbed the microphone and said even though it was a draw, in her head she heard a three count. Ito admitted defeat. However Mizuki admitted defeat too, saying in her mind she was tapping out. They passed the microphone back and forth talking between the tears about wanting to do more but having no time. Ito encouraged Mizuki to move on now she is a tag team champion with someone else. She will still be in the ring with her but instead of standing beside her, she will stand in front of her! All Ito wants now is Mizuki to give her true feelings about the Ito Respect Army. Mizuki yelled she doesn’t want to and she will always stand by Ito’s side. Ito struck Mizuki with an Elbow Smash and the two bowed to each other in thanks. They left the ring together with Ito singing “Ultra Soul”.
Yuu & Raku came up with a new way to do the Good Night Express. Yuu lifted up Raku and cradled her to sleep before laying her on top of Reika Saiki to complete the Express. It still didn’t win the match though.
Yuki Kamifuku used lipstick to mess up Shoko Nakajima’s ace during their match. Nakajima grabbed the lipstick and went to do the same but Kamifuku dodged it and Daisuke Kiso got his face messed up instead. Nakajima was able to use the lipstick on Kamifuku against the ropes to set up a 619. She then won with the Northern Lights Suplex.
It was announced that Azusa Takigawa and Nonoko will reform Konkatsu-gun for one night only on 3rd October.
