*reposting since it seems to be a popular entry and has received a lot of recent comments..
No, it's not Freefall Jones, it's Ayako Miyake - the pink-haired Japanese pixie that steamrolled the Women of Ninja Warrior (Kunoichi) tournament a ridiculous three times in a row. I'm actually surprised that no one here has mentioned her yet, considering we seem to create a new post every time a Japanese girl takes a deep breath. So I've taken it upon myself to compose this pictorial tribute to Ayako Miyake. We salute you, Queen!
Yes indeed, she's Number One.
Or is it Number Two?
Nah, Number One.
"Oh, Son of Gigan-san, why aren't you here to share this moment with me?"
Waiting in the jungle, presumably to kill a tiger with her bare hands. Not the most effective camouflage, though...
The queen cradles her fire-eyed hellhound.
You can see Langdon Alger in this very same outfit every Sunday night in the East Bay.
Happy birthday in Vegas! She celebrated by scaling the Stratosphere Hotel in less than 45 seconds.
Oh yeah. That's a keeper.
And if any of you are wondering where I got the pictures (yeah...if you're wondering. Right), Ms. Miyake has a website and a blog. One of us needs to bite the freakin' bullet and learn Japanese already so it can be translated, but there is a nice little English message from our queen in in one of her posts:
"Thank you for many messages from America!
I appear in Japanese Shibuya for the show of "Muscle Musical",now.
Come to see it for an opportunity to come to Japan if to be!
It is looking forward to meeting everyone.
Then, I do the show of the musical MATSURI which is the same as Japan in
Las Vegas in Sahara.
Come by all means to see it,too. I do my best in the vigor fullness today, too!"
You sure do, Ayako. You sure do.
