Larger-than-life Erika Sawajiri returns

43 Comments

Actress Erika Sawajiri, 23, is making her first comeback since being dismissed from her management office last September in a different medium. As of Monday, Sawajiri adorned the wall of Ginza's Sony Building on a giant poster for aesthetic salon Takano Yuri Beauty Clinic.

The poster, which measures 28.5 meters by 6.7 meters, features a semi-nude Sawajiri -- painted in a black latex-like substance and perched on one foot in stiletto heels -- and the words "Sawajiri Erika, kaikin." (unbanned or released).

It'd be hilarious if she got busted for drugs back in Japan. I imagine she's on something.

Unbelievably tacky. Although it could potentially be much worse, so mustn't grumble too much.

Glad I'm not going near Ginza in the near future though.

She's been dipped in something. Mmm... chocolatey latex.

I welcome her back in all her glory. magnificent legs

Oh yea, those heels should be clear plastic. Would enhance the leg lines better.

To get this fashion to be more erotic, clear heals, w/ not black coating, but a shimmering clear iridescent coating (degree of white to blend into skin color), a splash of red or black. Mikey likey.

I heard she was a good actor/actress. Here is hoping she rides this sleaze thing through.

"since being dismissed from her management office"

I'll bet when asked if she felt bad about that, she said, "Betsu ni."

Yappari!

This is great! Just great! I guess Ginza will be full of XY chromosomes these days.

I think she looks even better in her yellow bikini, but that's just me.

When is that poster going to be available on Yahoo auction?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I liked her as she was acting a girl with a disability on "1 liter of tears" program.

But she failed to say "Betsu ni" when being interviewed and lost place to be in entertainment industry. It was like a snow boarder "Kokubo" in Vancouver Olympics. I hope she learned the sense of respect, propriety, gratitude and so on.

Erika Sawajiri is definitely coming back! Good for her. But better for us males around the world!

betsu-ni (ner own words!)

very nice.

I'm no fan of hers but that's a really nice poster. Really.

I don't want to be a party pooper, but I see that she has been doing risque pictures since she was.. well.. it looks like what? 15 or something? And now this. But her production company says that she values her "privacy." This is absurd. She really ought to make up her mind. Exposure or privacy. Either way is ok, with me, but I want to know if I can leer and slobber guilt-free or not.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I wish I could stroll down to Ginza and check out this huge poster of Sawajiri for a good while. Too bad I'm not in Japan now...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I guess she has to sell her body now because nobody likes her personality.

Good photoshop job though.

speedracer,

you are confusing nudity with privacy. I assume she, like other famous ppl aroung the world, wants to go out wi/o the press hounding her, taking pix of her getting into this and that car, store, bar, etc. As an entertainer, her job is to be in the public eye, acting, or taking her clothes off for advertising. But when she goes home she wants to be a private citizen. So, As long as you're not standing outside her window slobbering, you can slobber guilt-free.

This wild wild flower has had her crazy moments.

Now that she's back to the scene, the virulent game only gets more virulent.

betsu-ni (ner own words!)

"Oh [expletive]" -- another one of hers. I'll stick to this one.
