This is a corner where a reporter talks casually and amicably with Miss June Lovejoy (24), an American who claims to be a sex monster AV actress. What game is the lover of all things Japan currently addicted to?
× × ×
Reporter: I was surprised to see the Nintendo Switch’s game software “Sota Fujii’s Shogi Training” on your Amazon wishlist.
June Lovejoy: (hereinafter referred to as Lovejoy) Really? Since shogi is a part of Japanese culture, I want to try it someday. He’s that young genius player, right?
Reporter: Yes. He’s a high school student with a terrifying monster level of shogi skills.
Lovejoy: Wow, I was terrifying sex drive monster on the high school chess team!
Reporter: Oh! Shogi and chess are rather alike so maybe you’ll get really into Shogi if you try it out.
Lovejoy: When I first came to Japan, I joined a group of board game lovers to learn Japanese quickly. I wanted to play chess with everyone so I bought my own chess set, but everyone at the group said, “Sorry, I don’t know chess..” Can you play?
Reporter: I’m sorry, I can’t play chess. I’m only good at love games for men and women.
Lovejoy: Me too ♡ However, in some board games it’s ok to lie, but in the game of love I can’t forgive those who lie!
Reporter: That’s right. I don’t want to date a lying “Takabisha” woman.
Lovejoy: What’s “Takabisha?”
Reporter: It comes from a Shogi strategy where you put one of the most powerful Shogi pieces, “Hisha”, in the foreground. It basically means a high strong woman who is always domineering and on her “high horse”.
Lovejoy: I see. Looks like shogi is a really profound game, how fun! ♡
