Erika's AV Lookalike to Release Video

The second lookalike Erika adult video now may finally be released. There was been a lookalike video earlier this year already, but by a different maker (yet same producer). Both videos feature the same actress. The new video with the title "Super lookalike shock!! Erika-sama AV-debut?!" had a lot of delays. One reason is that it's the same actress, but there have been complaints. It looks like that one soft-drink and one dress could be identified in the preview pics. Usually such things are censored in the final product.The pictures in the preview now have been removed. Apparently Erika's agency made those complaints to stop the release of the AV. They have only been able to delay it for another week, the video now has a release date of 03/06.

Erika ranks in CM Top 20

Erika ranks in the top20 of "most favorite woman in a CM of 2007." Last year, about 3000people have been asked each month, which celebrity of the currently airing CMs they like the most. Now the final result of the annual research is out and Ueto Aya finally stands at the top again. Last year she has only been third, but with her Softbank mobile phone CM she made the comeback as CM-queen. The biggest surprise is at place two with Aoi Yu who has not even been in the top100 the year before. Erika did a good job with her 13th place. Her Fran commercials boosted her into the top20. Last year she has been 52nd only. The complete top20 for female celebrities can be seen in the here.

Poll: Who are you looking forward to in 2008?

Erika has ranked in another poll. This time people are asked which stars they look forward to seeing more of in 2008. This question was asked in November of 2007, and asked to 3,300 people. Erika ranks at #17 in the poll. The fact that this poll was conducted in November of 2007 may explain the low ranking Erika received, since at the time there was still quite a bit of drama going on with Erika. Although she is currently in London on vacation, it has been said that Stardust will maybe be working on getting Erika a role in a movie or drama this fall.

Destination Nowhere Final Sales

ERIKA's second single, Destination Nowhere, has dropped completely out of the top 200 in the 9th week of release. The total amount of copies sold according to Oricon is 43,209. But according to RIAJ, 100,000 copies of the single were produced/sold. The single was pretty much a "flop" compared to Taiyou no Uta and FREE. It did do decently with digital downloads. It was certified as gold (100,000) on download charts.
