While Stardom is best known for their Joshi wrestler photobooks, Tokyo Joshi Pro produces a couple a year as well for their roster. Many of the photobooks they produce are for a team or a faction, so its a special occasion when an individual wrestler gets a photobook all to her own. For fans of strictly gravure-style photos, this photobook may not completely scratch that itch, but its a fun look at Rika Tatsumi that likely matches her personality.

To say this is not your typical photobook would be an understatement, and while it would have been easy for them to just take 50 modeling pictures of Rika and call it a day, they went in a different direction. A good percentage of the pictures have Rika in unique scenarios, such as eating jelly, in various costumes. There are a few pages of Rika in ‘casual’ attire, and the photobook ends with a decent number of bikini pictures. The pictures range from being in very bright settings to dark settings, and it provides a solid variety that should satisfy any fans of Rika Tatsumi. If you go in expecting a Stardom-style modeling or bikini book, this isn’t that, but its a very well done presentation that mixes things up and is never dull. Here is a sample of pictures from the photobook:
