The beautiful Suzu Honjo is continuing to impress Japan and the world at large as she develops her burgeoning career further. As regular readers will know, the Yamanashi native already made a huge splash with her porn debut in spring that, at least according to the marketing, achieved 10,000 preorders -- this in a culture of over-saturation of adult video, where "bestsellers" typically only sell a few thousand. Her second AV -- kind of strangely titled as her "second debut" -- came out in late June from a Soft on Demand label. The 192-minute feature (1STAR00933) is directed by ...

Sometimes a bit of experience makes a big different. Sayuri Miyazono is the latest Japanese porn debutant to catch our eye and she's in a different kind of league to the hundreds of other new adult video stars. Miyazono is 32 years old, putting her loosely in the jukujo "mature woman" category that is increasingly popular in the mainstream, thanks to the seductive likes of Mitsu Dan and Manami Hashimoto. Sayuri's slender and pale Asian body is coupled with an E-cup bust and pretty face of the kind that can be seen almost any day around Tokyo. And that's the point. She's meant to be ...

It's turning out to be a good summer for gravure idol photo books. After Yumi Asahina won our hearts with her debut photo book out this month, along with other great recent releases from Ayumu Takeuchi and Miho Abe, an old favorite has appeared with a photo book that just might reassert her position in the crowded ranks of gradols. The slinky and alluring Hinako Sano has been on the scene for a while -- blimey, we included her in a round-up post of top idols way back in 2013 -- but her star was no longer on the ascent. That might change now with this latest photo book -- her first in a ...

Newbie gravure idol Yumi Asahina (朝比奈祐未) quickly made an impression on us a few months ago with her awesome butt -- so much so that we included her in our updated list of top asses in Japan. Now she's gone one step further with a new photo book release that sees her strip off, not only revealing her gorgeous butt but even her bush and breasts. Praise the 8 million gods of Shinto! She's joined the long tradition of the "hair nude" full-frontal photo shoot. The 26-year-old G-cup gravure idol was shot by Kendrick Watanabe for a retro-tinged photo book called "Asahina Gaho" ...

Regular readers will note that we have recently written a lot about new adult video stars. In just the past few weeks we have blogged about debuts from @yano_puple, Mahiro Tadai, and Rina Minami. Our latest scholarly interest lies in rookie JAV star Noa Mizuhara, who debuted from S1 in March with a four-hour epic and has since gone on to appear in several AV releases. The slender 20-year-old has previously released an "image video" in summer 2017 (this is like a very sexy gravure video in which the star is almost naked but there is no actually sex and it's usually just her alone the whole ...

A successful Japanese ero-cosplayer has taken to Twitter to display her talents -- and the results are magnificent, to say the least. This goddess in question, Miri Minazuki, has posed for a series of alluring shots in front of a mirror that test the boundaries of the social media platform. Miri Minazuki shows off her slinky, amazing body in imaginative ways that leave almost nothing to the imagination, placing skin-colored patches over her paipan vagina and nipples. She even does the classic M-shaped squat to show off what she's got between her legs. She sadly stops short of actual ...

Is this future of idols? People often complain about the manufactured nature of idols, both in terms of the way they look and their music. Well, this development takes things to the next logical yet extreme step. Kyoto-based DataGrid has released a video showing the creation of a fully digital schoolgirl idol. In fact, it's dozens of smiling, innocent-looking schoolgirls -- a fully fledged supergroup of its own, and all generated by computer graphic pixels and artificial intelligence. To be honest, we don't know whether to be amazed or terrified. The realism is certainly amazing ...

Last month, news broke that former AKB48 member Marie Watanabe had appeared in porn as an "amateur" (shiroto) performer. Though she graduated from AKB48 way back in 2007 and actually made very few professional concert appearances with the music group, local netizens were still very excited by what they saw of Watanabe in action -- not least the thrill of yet another AKB idol getting down and dirty. The buzz was so strong that it seems she was approached by porn producers to do more. Now performing under the new professional name of Nana Mizushima, Watanabe will make her official AV ...

At a recent concert, one fan happened to be in the perfect position when SKE48 idol Haruka Kumazaki was doing an up-close meet-and-greet round of the stadium. Sure, he or she wasn't seated in the stands where Haruka Kumazaki actually came to say hello. But they had the next best thing -- or perhaps something even better. By being behind her, they could capture a unique panchira upskirt shot when she bent over to greet eager fans. Under her skirt, Haruka's panties are tightly wrapped around her buttocks and rolling up to wedge in her butt crack. Her knee-high socks also really show off ...

We wrote last week about the rumors that Saki Sudo, the 22-year-old wife of recently deceased 77-year-old Kosuke "Don Juan" Nozaki, had a past porn career as an "amateur performer." Now further proof has emerged. Again appearing under the name of Yurika, netizens have dug up another entry in her catalog of JAV credits. Titled simply "Yurika" (GAREA451), the 104-minute was released by the G-AREA porn label in January 2018 -- just before Sudo tied the knot with Nozaki in February. Intense tabloid media and online interest in Sudo and her involvement with the late Mr Nozaki has pushed ...

Say your thanks to the 8 million gods of Shinto. The latest major adult video debut is an idol with a distinctly Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Harajuku vibe. @yano_purple, as she is known, has purple dyed hair and sweet looks. She might be one of the young girls you see in outrageously colorful clothes and cosplay on the streets of Harajuku or Shibuya. Luckily for us she got scouted and tempted into a porn career. "Estimated" (as the marketing phrases it) to be 20 years old, she's making debut this month with a 126-minute release (1KMHR00039) from SOD Create. The AV has a threesome theme and in ...

Back in May we introduced readers to the charms of Mahiro Tadai, a stunning new Japanese adult video idol who promises to have a great career. The 18-year-old has just made her much-publicized porn debut on a Soft on Demand label, backed up by a strong marketing machine as well as a stunning full-frontal photo shoot in a weekly tabloid. We hope the splashy launch pays off for all parties involved, since Mahiro Tadai deserves to be a major star. We couldn't resist posting some more images from her debut, "Mahiro Tadaima 18 Years Old AV Debut" (code: 1star927) -- out now from SOD ...

In May, the 77-year-old Kosuke Nozaki was found dead on his sofa in Wakayama Prefecture by his 22-year-old wife. The famously successful and wealthy womanizer was said to have bedded many ladies over the years and even wrote a book, Don Juan of Kishu: The Man Who Gave 3 Billion Yen to 4,000 Beautiful Women, about it. His death was initially suspected as a murder. Police have announced he died of circulatory failure, though this may have been caused by the stimulant drugs in his system. It seems he ingested these orally. Now attention has turned to his wife, Saki Sudo (須藤早貴), ...

The busty gravure idol and actress Bambi Watanabe has decided to up her career by stripping off. The stunning H-cup model has appeared in such TV shows as Amachan and even on stage, but now, on the cusp of thirty, the gravure glamor modeling work is drying up. What better way to revamp her career than stripping off for a shoot? At the end of June, the 28-year-old Watanabe will release "BAMBI," her first photo book in nearly ten years. Will the nude images help push it up the sales rankings? Some preview shots have been published this month in a weekly magazine and we certainly like what ...

Top Japanese adult video star Mana Sakura has tried her hand at some naked body painting -- with some simple yet lavish results. The insanely popular porn princess shared the visual delights on Twitter -- the behind-the-scenes snaps from sort sort of collaboration with painter Ryuji Kamiyama. It was a shoot for the July issue of Japanese men's fashion magazine smart, which went on sale last week on the day that Mana tweeted the pics. The body painting seems to be words, mainly in English, but our eyes or imaginations are not sharp enough to decipher them. "Love me," ...

It's almost summer -- so what better time to share an adult video debut by a stunning H-cup college student with an extreme tan line? Rina Minami is meant to be 20 years old and a college student. We'll leave doubts about the veracity of these details to one side for a moment, since she has plenty of other assets that should provide more than enough distractions. In April, she recently made her porn debut on the suitably named Oppai label with a 149-minute release (PPPD00659). While she's probably not what you would call a gyaru exactly, her tan line is pretty crazy. Her breasts and ...

Japanese netizens with beady eyes and dirty imaginations are speculating that former AKB48 idol Marie Watanabe and now dokusha model ("reader model") had a career as an amateur porn star. Such "shiroto" adult video releases are, of course, professional but they are filmed in such a way that they look like a woman is being picked up off the street. Performers are often inexperienced or first-timers. Given the pedigree of Yua Mikami (formerly Momona Kito) and various others, Marie Watanabe would hardly be the first AKB or related music group idol to work in adult video. She actually ...

Each month, many women debut in adult video to different levels of hype and fanfare. Just as many quickly disappear after their contracts end or resurface under a new performer name. But surely this young lady is set to be one of the biggest stars in Japanese pornography? The angelic-looking Mahiro Tadai (唯井まひろ) will make her debut in adult video with a new title released on SOD Star on June 7th. Born in March 2000, Mahiro Tadaima is a mere 18 years old. Doesn't that make you feel old?! The 180-minute video is rather unoriginally called "Mahiro Tadaima 18 Years Old AV ...

Curvy jukujo Manami Hashimoto is apparently nude in the film And Then There Was Light (Hikari), which we missed when it came out last year but are looking forward to catching on DVD soon. In the meantime, between parsing her semi-nude sex scenes for television dramas, we are admiring her appearances on regular TV. Like this, which saw her have her stunning breasts groped, kneaded, and massaged for the benefits of the rolling cameras. The show was Yoru Sanpo on BS Fuji TV, which is presented by Hashimoto. Surrounded by other women watching and filming, Manami Hashimoto sat ...

Someone shared a behind-the-scenes video of Haruna Kojima at a photo shoot while she is getting ready. She's standing in her panties as members of her staff attend to her body and clothing. Though she's sadly wearing a top to preserve her modesty, her slinky panties reveal more than perhaps the people present expected. Japanese netizens, perhaps with too much time on their hands, have paused the video and zoomed in to see that it might show Haruna Kojima's paipan (fully shaved) pussy. To be fair, you don't seem much -- but that's the point. If she wasn't fully shaved or waxed down ...

Asian Boss recently landed a video interview with former Japanese adult video star Emiri Okazaki. The video has proved a hit, notching up over 3.5 million views in just a few days at time of writing. As video host Kei notes, Japan is known for a handful things, including anime and porn. But why is porn so big here? And what is like to work in the industry? The 18-minute interview is in Japanese but has English subtitles throughout. Emiri Okazaki, whose five-year AV stint began in 2011, discusses her career and thoughts on working as a porn star. The kinds of women who go ...

Shoko Takahashi is one of the few gravure idols whose crossover to adult video has been a lasting success. Formerly known as Shoko Takasaki, she has continued to enjoy commercial triumph after triumph with her porn releases, which typically exploit her incredible bust (and breasts that have, unusually for AV stars, inverted nipples). And now the goddess has released what is, to our knowledge, her first clone masturbator toy: the Meiki no Syoumei File Shoko Takahashi AV Star Onahole. Onahole enthusiasts will quickly spot that this is the latest (actually, the eleventh) in a specific ...

Remember our excitement over Suzu Honjo? Ahead of her much-anticipated adult video debut for Soft on Demand, she did a lavish nude photo shoot. Now we've found some preview images from her first AV release, which came out on April 26th from SOD Star. Directed by Ietaro, Honjo's 305-minute title (1STAR00888SS) has attracted 10,000 advance reservations, which is a lot in an overcrowded industry where many performers debut to a whimper (with the exception of a few celebrities switching over from another industry) and most releases shift only a few thousand in total. In her porn ...

Combining bodybuilding and sports with gravure, "muscles idol" Reika Saiki is a femdom fetishist's dream come true. It's not hard to imagine her appeal with harmony of cute face and muscular body. Imagine those thunder thighs and powerful arms pinning you down while she grinds you! She's not completely new to the scene, though. We already noted her brawny charms in 2016. Now Reika Saiki has taken things to the next logical conclusion: by transforming into Street Fighter's Chun-Li. She recently posed for some stunning shots that really show off her combat pose and chunky ...

The Education Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi has apologized for using an official car to pay visits to a "sexy yoga" studio. It follows a sexual harassment scandal involving a leading bureaucrat in the finance ministry, who was recently forced to resign after audio emerged of him asking to hug and touch the breasts of a female newspaper reporter. The tabloids have gleefully parsed the details of this new transgression, such as the private oil massage Hayashi received from the yoga instructor. Was there also a bit of rub and tug?! We, on the other hand, are more intrigued by the ...
