Weekly Pro EXTRA: Women’s Wrestling Erokawa Vol. VII Review

Erokawa VII - Cover

From 2012 to 2017, Weekly Pro Wrestling Magazine occasionally released “special edition” magazines for women’s wrestling. The magazines are primary known for the modeling-type photos for a small selection of wrestlers, but the magazines also include articles about the wrestlers as well. You can read reviews for more magazine and photobooks on the Joshi Photobook Reviews page.

For the 7th edition of Weekly Pro Wrestling Magazine Erokawa, the following wrestlers were featured:

  • Io Shirai
  • Toni Storm
  • Hana Kimura
  • Natsu Sumire
  • Saori Anou
  • Natsumi Maki
  • Konami

All seven wrestlers had their own separate spreads, as there were not any dual or group shot pictures since I assume they all took their pictures separately. Each wrestler received a fair number of pages, however Io Shirai, Toni Storm, and Hana Kimura received more coverage than the other four. Since most Western fans will be purchasing these magazines for the pictures, I’ll focus my review on that portion. Approximately 45 pages from the magazine are modeling/gravure pictures for the wrestlers featured. It is a solid variety of wrestlers, as since the magazine is not affiliated with any promotions in particular every wrestler came from a different promotion or area (as of the date of this review, three of the wrestlers are members of/regularly wrestle in Stardom but that was not the case at the time of release).

The majority of the pictures are bikini/lingerie attire but it does not dip into more risqué territory than that. The Weekly Pro Wrestling Magazine Erokawa series is one of the best available due to the wrestler variety and the quality of the pictures, and I always recommend checking them out if they can be found at a reasonable price. Here is a sample of pictures from the magazine:
