Lollipop Chainsaw Has A Different Image Girl In Japan

By Ishaan . May 11, 2012 . 4:33pm

Lollipop Chainsaw has a different image girl in Japan. While the role of Juliet Starling is being taken on by cosplayer, Jessica Nigri, in North America, Japan gets Mayu Kawamoto. Well, actually, Japan gets them both next week. Kadokawa Games will be promoting Lollipop Chainsaw in Akihabara on May 19th, and both Juliets will be at the event to represent the game:

    She could have at least bleached her hair or something…

    • No, Japanese people don’t look right with blonde hair. Really, that hair color looks bad on them :(

      • Warren Deck

        Impossible. Japanese girls look good no matter what.

          Well said my friend. Well said.

          Japanese girls=being that is too cute to be left behind…….Moe?

        • Hraesvelgr

          Really? Japan is like any other country in the world, their people are not any more or less attractive than anyone else.

          And, frankly, I’m inclined to agree with him. Deep tans and really light hair (gyaru) look really terrible on the Japanese. They most certainly do not “look good no matter what.” That is purely a “grass is greener” line of thought.

          • puchinri

            Gyaru itself does not imply deep tans and light hair. I believe you mean ganguro specifically.

            Which can be pulled off by almost anyone, but generally, the Japanese ladies that do attempt gangaru are going for a specific look with it anyway, so it’s hard to say.

          • Hraesvelgr

            Ganguro is just a type of gyaru anyway, isn’t it? The tans might be more common with ganguro, but the general gyaru style (dyed/bleached hair, ugly decorated nails, bad makeup) is not particularly appealing. Just using it as part of my point that Japanese girls don’t “look good no matter what.”

          • Warren Deck

            Looks good to me.

          • puchinri

            Ganguro is indeed a type of gyaru, but the hair might not always be bleached necessarily, and the nail bit is interchangeable (I enjoy nailart to an extent, so I’m sure I see it differently).

            In the end, I think it’s definitely up to taste, that’s for sure. Some prefer Japanese girls with blonde or lighter hair anyway. I can see your point, but I’m pretty mixed about it myself too. I do prefer pastel colors (not the yellows though) for some Japanese cosplay, but then again, not most people can work lighter and/or pastel colors to me in general, no matter their skin tone or ethnicity or what.

        I’ll just leave this here…

        • WingsOfEternity

           I love this community now

  • Shadowman

    Doesn’t really matter they both look sexy.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    both sexy  :D

  • klkAlexar

    Jessica looks more like Juliet, but Mayu looks cuter. 

  • hakumen001

    Is it really that hard to dye your hair or wear a wig?! People cosplay all the time there and there are people who dye their hair every where in Japan and they chose her?! Pathetic…

  • hush404

    The Japanese girl is cute, but the american girl has one hellishly distracting bust. I was trying to pay attention to what she was saying but my eyes just kept diverting. 

  • Darkrise

    Damn she’s cute, but still could’ve at least gotten a blond wig or dyed the hair. And wow 0.0 Jessica Nigri can speak japanese.

  • They couldn’t be arsed to even provide a blonde wig? Japan is usually god tier in terms of cosplay. What gives?

  • Visa Vang



  • Darrel Daley

    I’m more interested in the girls than the game!

  • AzureNova


  • The_Real_Oyashiro

    They can chop my head off anyday! 

    • I see what you did there…

      And wow, lotsa promotions for this game and still not even nearly done! Looks like Kadokawa games and Suda are betting with all they can on it.


    Why can’t we get double Juliets over here too ; ~; ?

  • boundries_san

    ….. So this is the Real Life example of Bust vs Cute face battle ehh??

    ………..Umm can i “gantai” both of them so i had a cute face girl with ohhhh yeahhh bust???

  • You guys suck, btw. I spent an hour and a half scrutinizing that Capcom financial report and picking out all the important stuff, and it’s not even at the bottom of the popular posts. Then, I go browsing through the news feeds for a couple minutes, find a video of two chicks and lazily throw it up here, and it shows up in Popular like an hour later!

    • rebecasunao

      Your Capcom post is much more relevant than two girls acting cute and sexy.

    • Jezzy

      Add sex and stir, and you have yourself a winning article!

    • AHAHAHAHAHA!  You know you love us, Ishaan <3

    • boundries_san

      Reality is cruel Ishann.T_T

  • Givemeblood…Nyaa

    That’s how you promote a game lot of compagnies could learn a few things from this.

  • and then they say japanese dev companies has lost there “touch” wuahahhaha.. let the west try and make a game like this.
    Ow wait they can only make wrpg’s and bland shooters every year

  • Bio_liquid

    I came for the lollipop, I stayed for the chainsaw

    • Shaun Carmchael

      I came for the lollipop I left for the porn.

  • brian yep

    So tasteful.
    Stay classy, Japan.

    Something about 
    Jessica Nigri makes me uneasy, like… she was made in a lab to be the perfect Cosplayer…
    I think she’s a B.O.W. , She’s on notice…

  • The perfect bond between the west and east: Cosplay.

  • neetyneety

    Uhh… wait, what? I got distracted… by…. some…. thing……

    Damn, that chainsaw looks so sweet.

  • Shaun Carmchael

    Finally a game made to fap off to!

  • karasuKumo

    I liked the funky music! I prefer Jessica, the other girl is cute though.

  • Matt Forsyth

    damn, Mayu Kawamoto *drool*

  • Evan Groman

    All that makeup completely ruins Jessica’s face, which was her distinctive “good feature” in the first place. It would look a thousand times better if she just had the same makeup as the Rikku cosplay.

  • Angeru_Lito


  • Thank goodness. I can’t stand Jessica Nigri. :|

  • Whoops, doublepost. That’s what happens when your router cuts out, it seems!
