  1. He's been running a couple different business ventures, especially stuff concerning the disabled. He's currently the owner of an onsen in Hokkaido. And for the last year or so, a mysterious man in a bear mask has been on shows for Hokuto Pro Wrestling.
  2. The show is tomorrow. It's still Thursday in Japan right now.
  3. Those numbers are for all of Bushiroad's third quarter earnings (July 2021 to March 2022), not just Stardom. It's broken into Digital IP (Trading card games, games, merchandising and media) and Live IP (Split into music and sports - New Japan, Stardom and the new gym they opened in Hokkaido). The Live IP section made 7.9 billion yen.
  4. The ending alley-way fight in Martial Club is one of my favorites. It's another Lar Kar Leung movie where the focus is on the martial arts and no one dies (although legs are broken). Human Lanterns is pretty dark and features a bit more fighting than one would expect from a horror story. Lo Mang makes an appearance as hitman. I also saw the Kungfu Stuntmen documentary. I wished they could have done a whole series on these guys. Sad that so many of them destroyed their bodies for our pleasure and will never get their due. Interestingly, I was watching the documentary about Weng Weng, the actor from For Your Height Only, and in the Philippines it seems that old action actors (also not well compensated) sit around talking about the old days like the guys in Stuntmen do.
  5. A very Sam Raimi Marvel movie. Enjoyed it. Lots of inside stuff going on.
  6. I don't know what anyone was expecting out of the attendance. It was Wrestling Dontaku but the actual Dontaku started today on the 3rd plus it was the tail end of a three day holiday that went into a work day which then goes back into a three day holiday (Monday and Friday this week are normal school/work days despite this being Golden Week). They should have started the show earlier so that people from outside the prefecture could pop in and still get out of town at a reasonable time.
  7. Fundraising site for Otani set up by his family. People overseas can donate via credit card. In Japan it can be done by bank transfer. You can also donate via LINE Pay. https://otanishinjiro.com/
  8. Tatsumi Fujinami is out of the Dontaku show and the HEAT-UP show on 5/2 due to a positive covid-19 test. https://proresu-today.com/archives/187529
  9. There will be an "Otani Aid" show on 6/4. NJPW, NOAH, Big Japan and others will participate.
  10. Kaho Kobayashi, who had been out since last year due to covid, will make her comeback against Hiroyo Matsumoto at the NOMADs show. They'll announce the full card on the 27th.
  11. Joint press conference for New Blood 2 (now with Color's!) and the Cinderella tournament finals. Not putting the Syuri/Himeka clip in here. Cinderella https://wwr-stardom.com/news/220420_press_conference-1/ New Blood 2 https://wwr-stardom.com/news/220420_press_conference-2/
  12. Otani update: He's been moved to another (specialist) hospital for recovery. Due to covid restrictions he's had to keep in contact with his family only via video calls. There will be announcement about how to support him on 4/28. https://www.tokyo-sports.co.jp/prores/zero1/4138958/
  13. Roki Sasaki had another perfect game going after eight innings but the coach pulled him with the game tied 0-0 in the 9th. Still, that means he's tossed 17 straight perfect innings. Update: Looking at it now, Sasaki had already thrown over a hundred pitches going into the 9th so that's probably why he got pulled. The reliever technically completed a no-hitter but a man got on base during a uncaught third strike. Then the next reliever gave up a solo homer in the tenth so Lotte loses and Sasaki gets a no decision.
  14. A mix of OZ Academy and Oedo Tai, I think. https://wwr-stardom.com/news/20220415korakuen/
  15. They started with the April 6th Dynamite and April 8th Rampage. They put up the episodes in English first and then will put them up with Japanese commentary but there's a lag of maybe a week. It's only available to New Japan World subscribers in Japan though.
  16. Shinjiro Otani's surgery was successful and they are going to go over what the next step will be. http://battle-news.com/?p=82473
  17. Shinjiro Otani was injured during his match tonight with Sugiura. It looks like he took a german suplex into the corner and suffered some kind of injury. He was unable to move and was taken to the hospital. He is conscious but unable to move. http://battle-news.com/?p=82377 https://www.sponichi.co.jp/battle/news/2022/04/10/kiji/20220410s00003000693000c.html
  18. Golden Swallow is Chang Cheh's sequel to Come Drink With Me. Did not realize that Wang Yu is the Master in Wu Xia (Swordsmen). He takes on a one-armed Donnie Yen in the final fight. If the stories are to be believed, Wang Yu helped Jackie Chan get out of his situation with Lo Wei (Triads are supposedly involved) and that's why Fantasy Mission Force exists.
  19. Story about O-Khan and his police commendation. The best part will always be him offering pancakes to the girl to calm her down.
  20. The One-Armed Swordsman, Jimmy Wang Yu, has passed away.
