Preview: Gatoh Move ChocoPro #56 (10/18/20)

ChocoPro 56

This past evening, Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling kicked off its fourth season of ChocoPro. It was an eventful show, to say the least, featuring everything from the continuation of a feud over a hat to, in many ways, an energetic main event. Never a show to take a break for long, ChocoPro returns to Ichigaya Chocolate Square only twenty-four hours later. Episode fifty-six promises to be just as exciting and here is what fans can expect on this upcoming show.

Tokiko Kirihara vs. Cherry

The joshi wrestling veteran known as Cherry made her ChocoPro debut on episode fifty-two. She made a huge impression to boot, teaming with Chie Koishikawa in a winning effort against Pencil Army. Cherry’s success in Japanese wrestling can’t be denied, as she is a former two-time Pro Wrestling WAVE Tag Team Champion and twenty-two time DDT Ironman Heavymetalweight Champion. Cherry may be able to tell one’s fortune, but can she predict the future in regard to his upcoming match against Tokiko Kirihara?

“Otoki-san” scored a major victory last time on ChocoPro, teaming with Chris Brookes to overcome, ironically enough, Pencil Army. Needless to say, Kirihara has just as much right to be confident, heading into this match, as her opponent. However, it’s important to note that Kirihara and Cherry faced off once before; roughly one year ago, Cherry bested Gatoh Move’s “dancing queen.” Since then, Kirihara has evolved, gaining more experience with each match. Can Kirihara avenge her loss to Cherry from 2019?

Pencil Army (Emi Sakura and Lulu Pencil) vs. Mei Suruga and Sayaka Obihiro

There appears to be dissension within Pencil Army. Last time on ChocoPro, Lulu Pencil sported a blue baseball cap, not unlike her fellow Pencil Army member, Emi Sakura. However, prodding from Chris Brookes prompted Lulu Pencil to angrily throw said hat down, knowing that it wasn’t quite the same as her trademark pink cap, which Brookes stole from the freelance writer on episode forty-four. This action insulted Sakura, as did Lulu Pencil seemingly wanting to learn from Brookes. Getting back on the same page may be difficult for Pencil Army, especially as they’ve yet to score a win as a team.

Perhaps Pencil Army’s losing ways will continue as they head into this upcoming match. The team of Mei Suruga and Sayaka Obihiro has proven to be formidable, as evidenced by their victory over Sakura and Ryo Mizunami on the ChocoPro season three finale. Furthermore, this past episode saw the “Apple Girl” of Gatoh Move pick up a huge victory over Chie Koishikawa. Now that Suruga and Obihiro are together once more, they have their work cut out for them as they take on perhaps the most earnest tandem in Gatoh Move.

Chie Koishikawa vs. Yuna Mizumori (ChocoPro Main Event)

Sporting new gear and putting on a tremendous effort in the previous ChocoPro main event, Chie Koishikawa entered season four with her trademark energy fully intact. Despite coming up short against Mei Suruga, “Too Much Energy” herself showed that she was more than capable of hanging in the main event scene. This knowledge alone should be enough to instill confidence in the former fencer. On this upcoming episode of ChocoPro, she finds herself in another main event challenge, this time against a wrestler representing an entirely different “apple.”

Enter “The Pineapple Girl,” Yuna Mizumori. Yunamon had been absent from Gatoh Move since September, largely due to her idol commitments. However, it was only last week when she made her Dramatic Dream Team debut, teaming with DDT Universal Champion Chris Brookes in a winning effort over HARUKAZE and Shota. Mizumori will make her return to ChocoPro on this upcoming episode, in a main event match, no less. However, she will have to work that much harder if she plans to overcome the exuberant Koishikawa.
