Well not to bad of a start but an Idol becoming a wrestler seems like the wrong choice

I find it stupid. Going Pro is a stupid for an Idol unless she's the masochist type who loves getting humiliated in front of her fans.

"Ah, please! Don't look! AH!!!!"

What are you talking about? the fact that the premise is so unbelievably dumb is one of the things that makes this series a shoe in for best anime of the year.

Honestly, I don't see where the transition from J-Pop Idol to pro wrestler is so strange. Both roles involve a lot of showboating, flashiness, and playing to the crowd (consider what Cyndi Lauper did in the 80s). The only difference is that pro wrestling involves more physical strength and toughness (and less singing), but then you do need good physical fitness to be a J-Pop Idol anyway.

Sakura's decision to become a pro wrestler was certainly very impulsive, but I think it's getting overly criticized. I've certainly seen sillier/stranger stuff in anime than this.

Or for a real life example Mickey Rourke started off boxing in his youth, moved on to acting, then went back to boxing before going back to acting.

Is there anyone here who's good with the wrestling rules?
Is it true that if the shoulders touched the mat the counting will start?

Spoiler for pic for anime/manga comparison:

I'm a visual guy, and I'm an audio guy too.

This series gets the thumbs up from me!

Especially from one of the most dedicated seiyuu in the business, Taketatsu Ayana.

Yes, that's how the WWF/WWE does it. This is why submission moves where you're underneath your opponent are somewhat rare - Refs will consider it a pinning position favoring your opponent if your shoulders touch the mat.

The anime execution of Kazama's "Shame Hold" might still be Ok, since she's leaning her upper body up a bit to avoid her shoulders touching the mat (manga's a closer call though). But there was one other submission move Kazama used where she was beneath Sakura, and digging her knees into Sakura's back. I'm pretty sure Kazama's shoulders were touching the mat there, so that should have seen a count-for-the-pin start.

Good job, jeroz. This is one of the more nuanced rules of pro wrestling. I'm not surprised the anime forgot it/dismissed it.

This is what happens when one leaves the sound from a hentai untouched, but substitutes the visuals with something acceptable for the TV

Put it in a loud speaker for your neighbors to hear, and they'll be thinking you're watching porn.

Another riveting episode.



I like how much Sakura is struggling to make it pro. She had to train intensely for three months, had to endure 100 throws in a row, and when she finally debuted on the ring, she lost. And from the sound of it, she won't win any time soon. She has a long road ahead of her.

Not surprising. Just physical endurance and weights isn't going to help Sakura. Sooner or later she will have to realize that she needs that special hunger for a win and most importantly aggression.

Agreed. Right now, she needs to do more than just kicks and German Suplexes!

Now I know that staring in hentai and 18+ doujinshi is neither the most painful nor the most humiliating role for a fictional girl
