About Us

Monthly Puroresu magazine

Monthly Puroresu is the first and only Otaku magazine covering Puro and Joshi wrestling in English, with on-scene editorial determined to marry the highbrow art of longform journalism with the action-packed wrestling drama coming out of Japan.

We enjoy relationships with every major wrestling organization based out of Tokyo, allowing us ongoing opportunities to translate the compelling storylines from a Western point of view. Monthly Puroresu also partners with veteran and amateur puroresu photojournalists in Tokyo in order to keep readers current.

Every quarter from Summer 2020 – Summer 2023, Monthly Puroresu published as a full-color magazine featuring comprehensive coverage of  New Japan Pro-Wrestling, STARDOM, Pro Wrestling NOAH, DDT Pro, Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling, All Japan Pro Wrestling and more. Because Monthly Puroresu is an independent U.S. based magazine, not a licensed product owned by those with a vested interest in a particular wrestling organization, it gives our readers objective coverage.

MP Digital

MP Digital is the online companion of Monthly Puroresu magazine, featuring daily takes on social media and weekly editorials discussing the biggest wrestling events of the week, ticket sale reports, scouting reports, and updates on what’s hot in the worlds of puroresu and joshi wrestling.

Our MP Digital community brings the Western pro wrestling, Anime, Gaming and MMA markets closer to the action through our firsthand knowledge and direct relationships with the wrestlers and promoters in Japan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I subscribe to Monthly Puroresu magazine?

A: Right now, we’re indefinitely pausing print issues while focusing on our digital channels. We hope to resume publishing limited run editions quarterly, and scale to more frequent publishings with a subscription feature. Check our Twitter/X for the latest updates.

Q: How long does it take to receive my issue after pre-ordering?

A: Pre-orders typically launch in the final stages of production and directly influence the up-front quantities we buy from our publishing partners. You can expect to receive your magazine around 2 weeks after pre-ordering.

Q: Who do I contact if my order is missing?

A: Please DM us on Twitter/X, or email for US orders and for UK + EU orders.

Q: It’s been two months since the last issue. When does the next one drop?

A: Monthly Puroresu magazine remains an independent operation, and we will continue to publish quarterly as we review strategic partnerships.

Q: I’m a comic shop / wrestling merch store / indie promoter, and I think your magazine would be great for my audience. Can I purchase in bulk?

A: Once we resume printings, there will be a vendor code to get the magazine at cost. Please email for more information.

Q:  Are you guys affiliated with New Japan, Stardom, NOAH, DDT etc.?

A: We maintain relations with their Tokyo PR teams and their wrestlers, but Monthly Puroresu remains an independent publication with no bias.

Q: I want to write for MP, what should I know?

A: Compared to western wrestling promotions such as WWE, All Elite Wrestling, TNA, and more, coverage of Japanese professional wrestling is very different.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that the curtain, to so speak, is not pulled back like it has been elsewhere in the wrestling industry; the allure of fiction vs. reality is still blurred to a much more significant margin in Japan. Domestic publications i.e Tokyo Sports, still retain this way of reporting – interviews and articles are written within the universe of what is going on promotions with wrestlers speaking to the press “in character”, unlike press conferences that major western countries now hold following a pay-per-view event.

Because of this extra care must be taken with an approach to how you view professional wrestling in these companies. Whether it’s storylines, championship challenges and matches – these need to be viewed through the lens of what the performers are expressing as opposed to what a viewer or know-it-all fan wants to think.

Additionally when reading comments by wrestlers that are in Japanese, there are certain words that must be translated correctly into English instead of keeping them as they are in the original writing. It is our job as a Western publication that covers Japanese wrestling to localise these to a high standard.

Fumi Saito

Editorial Advisor

Based out of Tokyo, Japan I've been a wrestling journalist for over 40 years – my first interview was Nick Bockwinkel. After graduating university in Minnesota, I returned home to write for magazines such as Weekly Pro Wrestling, Gong Magazine and others while signing book publishing deals. In my native Japanese, I've published more than 30 books on puroresu. I've also worked as a broadcaster and podcast host, and have provided the voiceover dubs for WWE Japanese audiences since WrestleMania I. For Monthly Puroresu, I act as an editorial advisor on current events and provide the writers insights from my lengthy career in the business.

Srettapong S. aka Peatzilla

Creative Director

I'm a Thai guy with a deep-rooted passion for professional wrestling, a journey that began in 2003 during the WWE RA era. My fascination with wrestling took a unique turn when I discovered a bootleg CD from the FMW's 90s event, which featured the legendary HAYABUSA, sparking my interest in Puroresu, the captivating world of Japanese wrestling. As a young professional, I've dived into the vibrant field of graphic design. I was particularly drawn to the aesthetics of the '80s and '90s, an era known for its bold and distinctive artwork. Combining my love for pro wrestling with my graphic design talent, I embarked on a unique creative journey. I began creating covers and featured art for the renowned ``Monthly Puroresu,`` starting with issue #11, which famously had KAIRI gracing the cover. My work combines my passion for wrestling and my flair for retro graphic design, a fusion that brings out the best of both worlds.

Born and raised in Tokyo, my interests vary widely – food, antiques, music, art, video games et c. My father and I shared a love for puroresu together when I was a kid, and I was especially attracted to the entertainment side. From major leagues to the indies, both men and women’s leagues, I think Puroresu is “The Best of the Best!” I’m happy that this is most acknowledged and appreciated in magazines. I still have a lot to learn, but I will do my best to convey the true aspect of puroresu with charm and respect as a journalist for Monthly Puroresu.

R. Faliani

Staff Writer

Hello, I'm from Argentina. I see wrestling with a different perspective thanks to the many content creators in my community. Everything changed when I first watched Go Shiozaki vs Kazuyuki Fujita in 2020. The unsettling nature of the match clicked with me, and it inspired my first video essay. That match made me understand something: I was a content creator –Gyro - and I want to broadcast different ideas: the battles of wrestling ideologies, the importance of Joshi & Puroresu and the dramatic stories surrounding it. I love Puroresu with such passion, I love how it gives me an empty canvas and tells me to draw my idea about it. I have not yet finished high school as a 17-year-old, but am currently preparing to venture into college. I actually learned English by watching wrestling and talking to different people over the years. I am still perfecting the language, and these experiences will help me even more.

When I'm not writing about wrestling for Monthly Puroresu, I write about Australian Rules Football and continue to concentrate on trying to write a great detective novel. I started watching professional wrestling via a six-hour sports package show called Wide World of Sports on one of our four channels here in Melbourne, Australia. I have always had a soft spot for Japanese wrestling that began with WCW’s involvement with NJPW in the mid-nineties. However, I didn't properly train my attention on it until discovering Shinsuke Nakamura and the Young Bucks later on. I love strong style, the realistic presentation of wrestling in Japan still takes my breath away every time I tune in.

When Thom reached out to me about if he should create a Puroresu publication – I said go for it, and ever since I’ve been the opening match every issue of Monthly Puroresu with a column that serves as a foreword.

And then in 2014, I set up a small printing company. I've loved drawing since elementary school. I have my own comic book, in high school I created 4 books just for hobbies!

Staff Writer

Based in the UK, I started watching wrestling in 2009. In 2014 I got my first introduction into Japanese wrestling when I watched AJ Styles vs Kazuchika Okada, as someone being an AJ Styles fan. My interest at that time wasn't big enough, but two years later, once AJ Styles' match (against Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestle Kingdom 10) has changed my perception about wrestling and rediscovered my love for it. After several years of watching different Japanese promotions and learning about their style, right now I prefer to watch and write about joshi and deathmatch wrestling, especially in small promotions.
