The Two Juliets Reveal the Absurdity of Cross-Pacific Commutes

Lollipop Chainsaw has two image characters: Jessica Nigri for the West and Mayu Kawamoto for Japan. Kawamoto is a black belt in karate, but Nigri has, I guess, a black belt in revealing cosplay.

This weekend in Tokyo geek district Akihabara, both Juliets appeared alongside game designer Goichi Suda to promote the title and pose for pictures. Silly pictures.

You'd think two image characters were created so one of them didn't have to travel across the Pacific to appear at events. You'd think. (Lollipop Chainsaw, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Its really absurd how this game praticly only got attention because of the cosplayers i bet the game is nothing special.

I'm looking forward to this game and Suda is awesome but Shadows of the Damned was absolutely TERRIBLE and it took a lot of convincing for me to be interested in this game

"What that´s even suppossed to mean?"

A pity to hear this from someone whose avatar is the picture of a character from a Japanese game...

Suda51 - Killer7, No More Heroes, Shadows of the Damned. His games have pretty cool and unique gameplay ideas, humor, and tons of style.

Akita Yamoaka - Silent Hill 1-4 composer and sound director. His music is amazing. IMO Silent Hill 3 has one of the best soundtracks in gaming.

<i bet the game is nothing special.>

To be fair, the same can be said for a vast majority of PS360 games. Exclusives too.

Your two comments reveal why you feel the way you do: you don't know anything about the game.

YOU heard about it because of the cosplayers. The rest of us first got interested because Suda51 was involved.

It's really absurd how one person's experience or opinion practically becomes that of everyone else in the world.

I think Jessica's hot, but she doesn't do it for me as Juliet. It's in the eyes... ah well.

I've seen some super duper HOT Japanese cosplayers but Mayu Kawamoto isn't getting the "Wet Nap" treatment that Jessica Nigri is providing!!

Jessica also looks more athletic than Mayu and after being around cheerleaders from my Football days Jessica just fits the part better.

Jessica Nigri = two Wet Naps and a thumbs up!!

Mayu kawamoto = Cute but no cheerleader vibe.

lol, gross imagery there. No, I think Jessica pulls it off better than Ms. Kawamoto, but I still don't think she's the perfect Juliet representative... still hot though.
Pozzle  +   1361d ago
The irony is that Mayu Kawamoto is a professional black belt in karate, while Jessica Nigri (even though she is obviously fit) doesn't seem to be a pro in any sport.
