The title of the article says it all.
Celebrating its thirtieth anniversary, the biannual Wonder Festival 2015 Summer happened at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, just outside Tokyo, last weekend.
We couldn’t be there, as usual, but other people with cameras fortunately were.
Here are some highlights from the sweltering event.
And if your preference is for weird cosplayers, especially guys, rather than cute girls, we direct you to the gallery at Rocket News 24.
Kemonomimi animal role-play adult fun in Japan: Zoophilia, catgirls, and moe anthropomorphism sex toysWritten by: Tadashi Anahori on May 19, 2015 at 12:11 am | In Adult Toy Releases, Erotic Japan Blog | Discuss »
These days every fetish has a name. Kemonomimi (“animal ears”) is a type of moe anthropomorphism where girl and boy characters in manga and anime have animal-like accessories.
Catgirls are probably the most famous but there are lots of others, since almost anything or anyone can become any kind of “animal” — from dogs to wolves, rabbits and more.
All this moe inspires its fair share of adult toys.
You may think that masturbator sleeves had nowhere else further to go, but then you’d be wrong.
This is the Dekoboko Moo Moo Catgirl Onahole, a fairly typical example of a masturbator in this genre.
A popular butt onahole this one — the Nyanko Cat Girl Ass Onahole.
This is the probably the downright kinkiest in terms of packaging art: the Neko Musume Maonyan Catgirl Onahole.
Kemonomimi butt plugs
Another distinguishing feature of cats and other furry creatures, on top of the ears, of course, is the tail.
So what better a toy than a butt plug to help perfect that catgirl look?
These toys come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and have bells, lights and vibes attached too. Click the pictures to find out more.
Japan is the land of cosplay and where would we be without catgirls and other furry elements to make kitten role-play fun? Try the Love Doll Nekomimi Cat Ears accessories as a good starter set.
The Cat Paw Myah Pussy Vibrator is a very original vibe: a buzzing “paw” that is soft and gentle enough, but knows how to purr you in the right places.
In general, zoophilia (the fetish for animals) and bestiality (human-creature sexual interaction) have deep roots in Japan.
This doesn’t surprise since the gods and other supernatural creatures (youkai, ghosts, obake, etc) frequently shapeshift into animal form.
Kitsune-tsuki means the state of being possessed by a kitsune, the folkloric foxes that served as familiars of the Inari god and frequently shapeshifted into human form. Cats (bakeneko) and raccoon-dog (tanuki) also commonly change form, according to superstition.
Plus there are shunga scenes like this…
Not to mention the controversial work of artist Makoto Aida.

As we know, busty Hestia from DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is now a very popular character for cosplayers in Japan.
One Taiwanese cosplayer, Ma You Rong, attempted a Hestia impersonation recently.
What do you think of her efforts? Apparently some people think her cosplay doesn’t make the grade. Of course, she’s missing the gloves but we give her top marks for trying.
She can also do Tsunade from Naruto with some panache.
The event is kind of a tech and otaku bonanza, organized by Niconico, a video streaming platform.
This year’s event was held over two days on April 25th-26th and was the biggest yet. Visitors numbered over 150,000!
This being Japan, naturally that included a lot of cute cosplayers…
There were also some colorful (or should that be scary?) male cosplayers.

Japanese television at its finest indeed.
Fuji TV have released a preview to “Yoroi Bijo”, the show we wrote about last week.
The concept is seductively simple: Gravure idols wear the suits of armor of famous samurai, then take them off piece by piece while talking about the history of the warrior. They are then revealed in their underwear beside all the shiny metal armor. That’s it.
The first show, which was broadcast on April 17th, features Gravure model Shoko Takasaki in the armor of Date Masamune.
Here’s the preview.
No prizes for guessing that this is aimed at men.
Cute women showing off flesh? Tick.
Armor and historical weapons? Tick.
Shoko Takasaki has an 87cm-bust and G-cup. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like for a woman as hot as that to wear samurai armor, then this is clearly the show for you.
Stay turned for Shoko’s next appearances: April 21st, April 22nd and May 8th. However, the episodes are being shown super late at night. What a waste of talent!
Every month there’s a different guradoru.
In May, it’s the turn of Kana Fujita, and then in June, butt goddess Yuka Kuramochi shows off her armored body. In July, it’s Hitomi Yasueda.
And if you’re curious, here is Shoko Takahashi sans her armor.
We heard about this a few days ago but only now have nice pictures emerged.
And what pictures they are…
A new Fuji TV show called “Yoroi Bijo” (Armor Beautiful Girl) features hot Gravure models putting on and taking off suits of armor, known in Japanese as kacchu or yoroi.
As we know from a recent example, Japanese TV is not averse to some pretty risque and bizarre concept shows.
So if you have a thing for girls wearing shiny armor and other medieval costumes, then this is definitely the TV show for you.
The ladies wear the armor to demonstrate how nice and heavy it is. Then they take it off, piece by piece, while talking about history.
Finally, they write some calligraphy.
First up, we have Shoko Takasaki wearing Date Masamune’s armor. Okay, she does wear it — we promise!
Later in the year we can look forward to Yuka Kuramochi, she of the amazing butt, wearing the armor of Oda Nobunaga.
Kana Fujita is wearing Sanada Yukimura’s armor (but not for long).
And finally, the lovely Hitomi Yasueda is wearing Uesugi Kenshin’s suit.
A little while ago there was a craze for so-called reki-jo, female history buffs.
But this is different. It’s hot girls in historical cosplay heaven. Yoroi-moe!
There’s definitely plenty of other examples of this around.
The trope is called ikusa otome — a warrior maiden with a weapon.
Erotic fan art is full of these warriors, plus there are video games like “Ikusa Otome Valkyrie”. Here’s Rena Nonen (correct us if we’re wrong) in ikusa otome garb.
Ladies, get ready for battle!
Anyone who has ever seen some of the more extreme or, ahem, unusual entries in the pantheon of Japanese adult video will be aware of ryoujoku (or ryojoku).
It’s where the woman is treated in a “degraded” way, as someone violated or disgraced — like a shamed woman. (The actual meaning of ryoujoku can be sexual assault, i.e. rape, or also “disgrace”.)
A common scene in Japanese porn will have the girl treated like a “human toilet” and phrases written on her body to “shame” her.
Here is Mika Osawa demonstrating the genre.
The graffiti might say things like “¥200 for one use”, “pervert urinal”, “slut”, “penetration this way” and so on.
The Ryoujoku Stockings allow you to indulge in this power fantasy without the hard work of doing the writing.
All you need to do is slip these tights on and you are instantly transformed into a degraded woman, with the insulting text written on the skin-colored stockings.
So put your pens away but get your darkest fantasies out.
Some ladies on Twitter have amused us by trying to copy an anime character.
Well, there’s absolutely nothing new about that. But this is cosplay with a particular focus on one body part — one of our favorites.
The girls attempted to copy Hestia from DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) and her trademark costume: revealing white shirt and blue ribbon, which runs tantalizingly under her boobs and around her arms.
The TV anime adaptation of the light novel was shown on TV for the first time recently and it got some lovely ladies thinking…. Could I do what Hestia is doing?
Were the girls successful?
Well, the response was fairly muted so I don’t think we have Japan’s next big meme quite yet.
Still, there are apparently male imitators too.
Japan’s top cosplayer, Iiniku Ushijima, is set to make her JAV porn debut at long last.
This was an April Fools’ Day joke by a Japanese porn label.
A million cocks sprung up when Prestige made the “announcement”… on April 1st.
No, Japan’s slinkiest cosplay idol is not switching over to the porn industry (yet).
It wasn’t the only adult-themed April Fools’ Day prank, though.
Feast, the lingerie line for A-cup Japanese girls designed by the cute Gomi Hayakawa, suddenly had a male spinoff. Hayakawa announced Beast, apparently her new brand of male lingerie, which look suspiciously like female underwear.

Fetish Festival (Feti-Fes) was held in Tokyo on Sunday January 25th at an inconspicuous venue near Harajuku.
There were 96 booths, including cosplayers, idols, bondage artists, and more, spread out over six seriously packed floors, plus a basement showing the “Underground Fetish Film Festival” screenings.
Feti-Fes was first held in January 2013, since then it has been held eight times around Japan. This festival — the fifth in Tokyo — was the biggest so far and there seemed to be hundreds of visitors by our estimate.
Due to legal reasons, there was no nudity allowed in the venue, nor could you touch the performers. However, all this really meant was that most of the idols were effectively naked, with their nipples covered by tape and wearing the skimpiest of swimsuits. Some opted for corset-style costumes, with appropriately explosive bust results.
All visitors were ID’d for their age upon entry. For certain demonstrations, they even made you sign an agreement saying you wouldn’t engage in sexual activities. I guess they are scared of police shutting the place down. The crackdowns have been severe recently, with a string of sex clubs and other venues being hit by raids, including major bondage clubs.
Most booths had an additional charge on top of the ¥3,000 entry ticket for taking pictures, hence the scarcity of ours here. Likewise most performances and screenings cost extra.
The lovely ladies of Sugar White. You could pay to get kicked by them.
We challenge anyone to find a single location in Japan that had more fetishes represented under one roof. We tried to keep track but lost count in the end: pocchari chubby idols, omorashi (seeing a girl wet herself), panchir (you can pay to get a photo of a girl up her skirt), wet t-shirt bust (where you could pay to shoot a water pistol at a girl in a white t-shirt), zentai all-body suits, vacuum pack fetish, rope and whip bondage, kick idols (getting a Thai kick from a cute girl), hairy armpit girls, manaita (flat-chested) idols, schoolgirl and nurse cosplay, funoshi cosplay, and so much more…
The shibari demo booth was very popular.
Likely the most obviously mainstream was a booth for nonsummerjack, where the gyaru model non sat on a bed showing off her jaw-dropping body in a bikini that left almost nothing to the imagination. Seriously, her body had to be seen to be believed, it was that good.
Maybe the prize for most esoteric goes to the “twintail whip” booth. As we know, twin tails (pigtails) are a fetish in Japan. Here you could pay to have a young lady with twin tails “whip” you in the face with each of her bunches. To each his own.
Demonstrating the catholicism and inclusive nature of the Japanese erotic world, there were lots of otoko no ko and other transsexual cosplayers. Although the visitors were mostly male, it wasn’t all just otaku and geeks. There were gays and lesbians, couples and girls, and lots of cosplay (people used the toilets to change), including people wearing some really unusual masks, and cross-dressers.
There were also booths for adult retailers, extreme fetish porn, bondage and shibari clubs, and other fetish bars. Most people were selling their merchandise or products, either as individual artists or as idol units with staff.
At a steam punk gear booth, Black Mamba posed for us in his costume.
Not all exhibitors were overtly erotic either. There was lot of gothic subculture too. There was also zombie cosplay, blood-drinking play, wound play, insect fantasy, and even mini “eyeball” art accessories.
There was even hypnosis!
Performers in the stage area included foreign cross-dresser idol Ladybeard (who is SUPER popular now) and Luchino Fujisaki. We planned to attend the latter but the line was too much to handle. Likewise the fetish film screenings looked awesome but we had to escape the crowds after an hour of taking in booths.
Our only real gripe is that the venue, though a lot of fun with all the maze of different rooms filled with booths and various kinds of exhibitors (even in the kitchen areas), had very narrow corridors and stairways, which often became intolerably crowded.
We can’t wait for the next Fetish Festival!
