Don't know how many Erika posts there were for 2016 but the number was definitely very low, probably the lowest amount since this blog started. This year there should be many more but not like it was in the older days where it seemed she had every other post.
Erika has a new drama coming out this April titled "Revenge". Looks to be a promising thriller and she'll be starring with her mate Tatsuya from the 'Death Note' movies, both were also in the one that came out last October. News about the series just came out a few days ago so sure there will much more coming out once it gets closer to April, that'll be a series I'm going to watch.
On April 29th Erika's next film "Blade of the Immortal" will be released. On February 15th there was a press conference for the film's completion which featured most of the cast except for Kimura who is the star of the movie. Plenty of fine looking Erika pics here from the event, she's certainly grown up before our eyes as her thirtieth birthday will be happening in 2018.
Erika originally came from Kobe but naturally she lives in Tokyo as doesn't every other big entertainment star. However she just did a CM for Kobe's tourism bureau to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of their port. Yesterday there was a promo video on YT for the campaign but just read at the city's site that it ran only until February 15th so perhaps they took it down today. Do have a few screenshots from it though along with a promo pic.
