One of the brightest stars of Actwres girl’Z (AgZ) Himeka Arita will be leaving the promotion on March 31st. Arita, who recently came up on the losing end in a tournament to crown a new AgZ champion, was considered a future star of the promotion as she and tag partner Miyuki Takase are booked in many promotions outside of AgZ unlike a lot of their fellow roster members.

The 22 year old started out with AgZ in 2017 and has been a regular for the promotion ever since but has so far failed to capture any gold in the company. At 5 feet 7 inches tall Arita has a real presence and is seen as a “monster” in the world of Joshi as she often towers over her opponents. Himeka Arita has worked for a variety of promotions outside of AgZ including Pro Wrestling WAVE, World Women Pro-Wrestling Diana, SEAdLINNNG and Ice ribbon to name just a few.
Arita formed a very popular tag team with current AgZ champion, the woman who beat her in the aforementioned tournament, Miyuki Takase known as The Beginning. The duo captured the SEAdLINNNG Beyond The Sea tag team titles in 2019 which is Arita’s only title run to date. The future status of the team is up in the air with this departure as Arita could end up working somewhere that AgZ doesn’t like or that would make her exclusive.
It’s unknown where Arita will go following her departure from Actwres girl’Z. It is likely she follows Saori Anou, who left AgZ recently, and becomes a freelance talent. Given Arita’s size and presence, it wouldn’t be a surprise if she was scooped up by a Stardom or even the WWE. Whatever her decision is we won’t know until after March 31st when she officially becomes a free agent.
