Sorry, it’s been a while since we did a photographic profile of a idol but we’ve been wanting to do Ruriko Kojima (小島瑠璃子) for a long time now!
Ruriko was born in 1993 and is more a TV tarento than straight-out Gravure idol, but boy, does she look nice in a bikini.
What a cutie. We love her big rabbit-like eyes.
With fame and sudden popularity comes unwanted side-effects.
Curvy over-thirty sexpot Mitsu Dan is not afraid of stripping off and revealing all, but she has acquired some undesirable fans among her legions of admirers.
After her home was shown on a TV program, she has had men apparently hanging around in her neighborhood.
Most celebrities and idols move to luxury condos when they hit the big time, but Dan (32) has continued to live in her modest apartment since her break happened almost over night and she hasn’t had time to catch up with her new-found lifestyle.
She found her mail was disappearing from her postbox. This included her gas and electricity bills, meaning she couldn’t pay them in time so she got embarrassing reminders from the utility firms.
It got to the point where she didn’t want to walk home from her nearest station but would have her manager drop her off.
She has also been having trouble with her agency, who were overworking her (and probably not paying her enough!) so she, the strong gal that she is, dumped them and moved to a rival agency that manages Risa Yoshiki and other top idols.
Former sweet and innocent Gravure idol Risa (aka Lisa) Goto has graduated to the big time at last.
After a career that began with drink commercials when still a teenager, Risa has since then had an up-and-down professional life, with bits of acting and prematurely retiring at least once.
So far that most spectacular thing was the “hair nude” shoot she did in 2012. This alone raised many an eyebrow for the former cute girl-next-door idol’s fans (and no doubt raised a few other body parts as well).
Now she’s thrown in her towel on the “other side” of the industry and jumped over to the more interesting world: Japanese porn.
We can expect Risa — freshly divorced — and her JAV debut in June, just as she hits thirty.
We can’t WAIT!
Sad news, folks. Tarento Jun Natsukawa (32), who has been gracing our screens and fantasies for years, has announced she is five months pregnant.
Jun married a man one year younger than her on January 1st, 2011.
The former Gravure idol graduated to television tarento, though remains probably best known for lying about her age in her official profile (or at least, her agency did, in efforts to elongate her career, no doubt).
Since we are unlikely to be seeing it ever again, here’s a tribute to her gorgeous body!
Feast your eyes on Yuki Mogami (最上ゆき).
Born in March 1991, the Nagoya-bred lady blends a perfect mixture of “Japanese beauty” with the genuinely sexy.
It’s rare for an idol like this to succeed, not succumbing to the whole “cute” fetish nor just surrendering to total sluttiness.
She looks just a girl you might see on the train any day. And yet she is utterly, heart-renderingly hot.
She has recently also done that odd idol thing of “re-launching” her “brand” by changing her name from Yuki Mogami to Yuki Mamiya (間宮夕貴).
2013 might already be into March already but some people are still making calendars for the forthcoming year.
Buttah, a curry restaurant in central Osaka, has made this Bijin Curry Calendar, a series of alluring shots of “semi-nude” girls and, well, curry.
Formerly a photo series that featured in a Kansai fashion magazine that finished in 2010, the calendars by Buttah have been going since 2011 and increasing every year (though, to be fair, even for 2013 there are just 200 copies, so we’re talking esoteric tastes here).
Food and the erotic. That’s our kinda combination!
The idol of the moment is Dan Mitsu, who just appears to be in every magazine and also a lot of mainstream TV shows as well. Could she stand a chance of breaking out into the regular tarento world?
She is being presented as a jukujo with a curvy, erotic body. In fact, she is barely in her thirties so this is a bit misleading.
Anyway, her popularity is creating some bizarre appearances and collaborations, including this music video she has made SoulJax and Maiko Nakamura.
While it’s hardly a work of genius, it does show Dan Mitsu’s “talents” to their full — lounging around in skimpy clothing, looking curvy and sex.
We’ve seen this kind of “idol boom” before and sadly expect that all too soon Dan Mitsu’s time in the limelight will vanish, and she will go back to the idol magazines.
Gravure idol Asuka Kishi (岸 明日香) is famed for her G-cup bust and 58cm waist.
The 1991-born, former race queen is these days a popular idol who has just released her fourth DVD, in which she shows off her lavish body in maid costumes, bikinis, and more in Saipan.
As part of the “preparation” her bust grew 2cm to a whopping 90cm.
Now that’s dedication to your work.
Some sad news to start 2013: Babe Maomi Yuuki is getting married.
Maomi (32) will marry her boyfriend, a hair stylist aged 35 this June. They met through work last May, which I guess proves that once over the magic three-oh, girls like to get hitched quick!
Maomi is often classified as an intenri josei tarento (brainy female TV personality) — a perhaps rather unjustified label, given that essentially she is a model.
At the end of the day, she is a minor TV celebrity famous for being a bit pretty and doing lingerie shoots.
She is particularly famed for her semi-nude shoot for women’s fashion magazine Anan when she was thirty.
No doubt kiddies will be following soon, so let’s enjoy Maomi’s pre-maternal body!
Our lady this week is the very, very lovely Aimi Marutaka (丸高愛美).
Aimi was born in 1990 and is a noted Gravure model growing in popularity, not least for her nice D-cup and winning smile.
