Meiko Kaji (梶芽衣子), from the interior or the Meinichi (命日) EP promo book.
Screencap of Meiko Kaji (梶芽衣子) as Kioroshi Torizo in the TV movie Lone Wolf & Child: Assassin On The Road To Hell (子連れ狼).
It premiered on TV Asahi on October 5th, 1989 and was directed by Tokuzo Tanaka. The lead role of Ogami Itto was played by Kenji Misumi (三隅 研次) with Tomisaburo Wakayama (若山 富三郎), who plays Itto in all of the original films, playing the main villain Retsudo.
It’s not a real great movie, but you can find a bootleg of it with english subtitles at SamuraiDVD.com.

This was the first image I ever posted on this blog and it’s probably my favorite image of Meiko.
Lately, I’ve been going through old posts and updating the tags as well as adding descriptions, starting at the beginning. Makes it easier for me to verify whether an image has already been posted or not.
I think every once in a while I’m going to reblog something I posted in the early days because there are a lot of awesome pictures that a lot of followers won’t have seen.
This screencap was submitted by a non-Tumblr user. Anyone know where it’s from? I’ve never seen it before.
It looks like it might be from Edo Dragnet (大江戸捜査網), but I’m not sure.
EDIT: The submitter informed me it is indeed from episode 31 of Edo Dragnet.
