Wednesday Wasabi: For crying out loud, it’s MEGUMI

MEGUMI_main

Once upon a time there was a little Japanese girl named Megumi Yamano. That is, as best we can dope out, the birth name of this particular Wedneday Wasabi.

Little Megumi Yamano would grow up to be an enormously popular gravure (no-get-naked) model, but in her mature career she no longer went by the name Megumi Yamano. No, the little girl had blossomed and bloomed unto bursting, she was now…

MEGUMI!

That’s it, MEGUMI. Her stage name was really just her real name in ALL CAPS. Whenever we read it we imagine she is SHOUTING AT US.

MY NAME IS MEGUMI, QUEEN OF GRAVURE QUEENS
LOOK ON MY GINORMOUS… UPPER CASE LETTERS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR!

Megumi modeled a lot. She got married. She acted and sang. She may be retired, for all we know. Yikes, let’s hope she didn’t go to the plastic surgeon and get her MEGUMI taken down to a Megumi. That would be a shame.
