Ever wanted to sleep beside a cute girl? Who hasn’t, right?!
A new shop, Soine-ya (“bed-sharing”), has just opened in Akihabara that lets you sleep next to a woman for those times when you want to feel the warmth of female flesh beside you.
It costs ¥3,000 for twenty minutes, or ¥6,000 for one hour. You can also pay for the pleasure of sleeping or resting on a girl’s lap, which costs ¥1,000 for three minutes.
Apparently customers are similar to the patrons you find in maid cafes and some are prepared to spend ten of thousands of yen.
The shop claims to be the first such in Japan and opened on September 20th. It is located two minutes from Akihabara Station.
And no, sadly there are no special “extras”, it seems.
Just when you think Yasushi Akimoto and his minions cannot go any further… they do.
AKB48‘s latest sell-out, a TV commercial for Puccho, sees them dancing to the sounds of their own “music” as they eat the product being advertised. But, this being AKB, nothing is simple and everything is queasy.
The heads of the young girls are pasted in the Most Obvious Photoshopping of the Year Award-winning style onto the bodies of dancing children. Yes, children. This time there is no mistake.
We simply cannot fathom what ad agency chicanery came up with the concept that the juvenile-like AKB should made to appear even younger (how is this making the product look good?!), creating either a sort of Robocop-lookalike bizarre mutant image — or, depending on your taste, every pedophile or Lolicon fan’s fantasy.
AKB are of course famously not a real band but a massive commercial machine designed by Akimoto to make money from otaku or otaku-leaning consumers through relentless spin-offs (propaganda films, sick TV commercials), mountains of merchandise and much-hyped events (hand-shaking, the “elections”). But when will they just go too far and land up in jail?
The reaction among even otaku on Twitter and elsewhere has been horror at the new lows. What can they possibly give us next?
This week’s key word in the erotic Japanese dictionary is zettai ryouiki (絶対領域) — often translated as “the absolute zone”.
A major part of otaku and moe culture, zettai ryouiki refers to the area between of the upper thigh when it is being exposed by a nubile and sexy girl, particularly when she is wearing a skirt and knee socks.
The phrase also occurs in Evangelion and so possibly became slang from there.
It’s not just about the exposure of naked flesh on the leg. The amount and proportion of sock and skirt is also very important in framing and emphasizing the nudity.
One of the most interesting trends in Japanese adult toys is parody or the way it uses other media as inspiration for “unofficial” adaptations.
This is particularly the case with anime or otaku-themed onaholes.
A new example is inspired by Papakiki!, the popular anime and manga series, and known by its full title as Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father! (Papa no iu koto wo kikinasai!).
Taking the schoolgirl virgin characters and converting their tight pussies into handy holes, the Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Horny Father! is a new series of three holes.
Here’s how KanojoToys describe the new masturbator:
Choose between Hiina, Miyu or Sora, each young and nubile, and with gaping, generous vaginal lips that yearn in that coy virginal shojo way for your large member to complete her. These three sisters each have their own individual fruits, defined by the meandering and sensual holes that you can explore as gently or as filthily as you like!
For the uninitiated, Papakiki! was originally a series of “light novels” that became an anime series for one season, a radio drama, and even later adapted into manga.
AKB48 handshaking events, when fans can “meet” their idols, have come into attention again.
Team B’s Rie Kitahara (21) — and probably only one of the only two genuinely hot AKB48 members — has fallen under the obsessive attention of one male fan, who wrote on an anonymous message board:
We argued about her hair [at a handshaking event]. It’s bad of me but I think of Rie-chan totally as my think. It pains me that other people are appraising her.
Each handshaking booth has its own bodyguard to make sure the fans don’t get too personal. This is a real concern.
This month at a concert, a member of another otaku idol group, Momoiro Clover Z, had her breasts fondled by a zealous fan. (Although some groups are doing a lot to encourage this kind of intimate fan-idol interaction!)
At concerts for Momoiro Clover Z now, audiences have to follow instructions on screens about when to sit down or stand up so that the organizers can control the horny crowds. This is apparently particularly the case when the idols get close to the audience seats. Just one surge of mass otaku energy and they would never be seen again!
Some handshaking events attract 80,000 fans, with each member shaking hands with thousands. While their few seconds with their girl will likely stay in an otaku’s memory forever, we certainly can’t vouch for the same being the case for the girls.
The AKB48 handshaking events have become notorious for fans to impose themselves upon their meek idols. Stories abound of them saying dirty things to the girls, jerking off right before and leaving the cum for her to touch — and more!
Still, if you market yourselves so ruthlessly and cynically as a sexualized group to such an alienated group of fans, then you can’t then bite the hand that feeds you… or shakes yours.
Forget the summer matsuri festivals, the fireworks and even the music festivals. The place to be this August is the Tokyo Idol Festival 2012.
Happening out at Odaiba in Tokyo Bay, this event has been taking place since 2010 as Japan’s first mainstream idol festa and must be the best counter-programming to mainstream summer events.
Okay, we’re be honest, some of the idol groups are basically girls who can’t be even 13 yet, which is hardly our cup of tea.
But we reckon, with the dozens of bands and personalities appearing, there is more than enough cute and sexy idols for everyone. There are 102 groups, a total of 692 different singers and members!
Idol-gazing doesn’t come cheap, though. Single day tickets are ¥4,800 (around $60), while weekend passes are ¥8,500 (over $100).
In the same week that AKB48‘s moneymen claimed victory in the amount of hype and advertising cash their well-greased PR machine could turn their “election” campaign into — comes a scandal that proves just how controlled and fake they are.
A minor member of the band, Rino Sashihara (b.1992), has sort-of admitted to the rumors started by a tabloid that she seduced one of her otaku fans.
Shock horror! A girl exploiting her fame to get some fun and pleasure for herself?!! Well, it’s okay if it’s men (unless you go as far as, say, Edison Chen), but with an idol, and especially for an otaku idol, it’s the ultimate taboo, up there with taking drugs.
We want these girls to be our sex objects for our masturbation pleasure. But we don’t want them to actually have sex lives themselves. No, that would be too feminist, of course. They must maintain that very, very fine balance between coy temptress and innocence. Step over the line and there’s no going back.
It’s not just otaku idols either. Why else do we hear nothing or almost next-to-nothing about the love lives of “pure” and kawaii models and actresses like Haruka Ayase, Yu Aoi and Mikako Tabe? Because their agencies keep it tightly under wraps and/or they order the girls not to have relationships at all!
Rino is what you may call nikushoku, literally a carnivore, and one who likes to devour weaker men. Now she’s been banished to HKT48, one of the hydra-like zillions of spin-off groups, this one located in the far southern corner of Japan on Kyushu. It’s the equivalent of shimanagashi, when in the olden days troublesome samurai were sent to Sado Island.
Rino issued an apology on her blog for her immoral behavior and has said that all she can do is try her best in her new act. Her blog has attracted 17,000 comments of support.
This isn’t the first AKB scandal, of course.
Come on, let’s face it, AKB48 are essentially soft core porn stars in all but name.
Any look at their music videos, their puerile TV commercials, or the constant bikini photo shoots will tell you that straightaway (and the music at any rate cannot qualify as a melody by most standards).
Nothing wrong with that, of course — actually, there’s a lot right with it. But we shouldn’t be afraid to call it what it is. It makes us at TokyoKinky angry that the producers care more about money than humans, and that they have the hypocrisy to pretend there is something “moral” about their creation.
It was the last time that Atsuko Maeda would be appearing — though she wasn’t actually “running” — and inevitable the latest AKB48 “general election” has been an insane blitz of publicity, with massive ads on TV (in collaboration with Google+) and on major websites.
It was shown live on TV for several hours and streamed online too. However, given how anemic viewing figures for AKB48-starring dramas and movies have been, and, compared to the advertising and hype, how, despite being touted as “top-sellers”, the music sales have also been relatively modest (compared to market leaders, say, fifteen years ago), we reckon no one is actually making any money out of all this!
The fourth event itself, with its fevered mob, rock-paper-scissors games and awards ceremony, took place at the Nippon Budokan (yes, where the Beatles played) in central Tokyo, and the highest number of votes were achieved so far, a record 13,804,122!
Only one girl (Yuko Oshima) got over 100,000 votes, with the rest spread out over the other 30 contestants. The winners of course become the headline singers in the next single release. Yuko came first by a reasonable margin, while second place was claimed by Mayu Watanabe and third by Yuki Kashiwagi. Much-hyped ladies Haruna Kojima only came sixth, while Tomomi Itano a meagre seveth!
We often say this but, other than some guys who think a few of the girls are cute, we have yet to ever meet anyone who actually likes the music — enough to buy it — or who would choose the over-kawaiified girls over a more straightforwardly sexy idol.
Anyway, we were much more interested in the bizarre but not surprising news that at least one fan had purchased 1,770 votes for the election! So we start to see the truth behind the “record” numbers and the large sales of the latest single.
To get the voting form fans had to buy the song “Manatsu no Sounds Good!,” which retails for ¥1,200 on Amazon Japan. That single apparently sold 1.61 million copies — but to how many people? How many other otaku were buying 1,770 copies (and thus forking out ten of thousands of dollars each!)?
The general election stirs up otaku fans — let’s be honest, “mainstream” fans are not anywhere interested in proportion to the marketing machine that Dentsu musters for this group — and then translates into further sales in the next single featuring the winners.
We’ve been trying out some examples of the big trend in otaku onahole toys recently.
But sometimes you need something a bit different to get the juices literally flowing.
Me and Tadashi are not what you could call otaku, though we do like to watch anime and read manga on occasion. But Kazuki is a big geek and so he jumped at the chance to tell us about the joys of these new kinds of adult toys, based on the otaku subculture characters, real or otherwise.
Take the 2ch Pussy Cat Onahole, with its alluring illustration of a neko-mimi-wearing cosplay girl and very large breasts. Designed especially for K-ON! fans, this very large and sumptuous masturbator feels like a tight young shojo every time.
If busts are more your thing but you still want to retain the innocence of a right body, we reckon the Beauty Line Koiki will be up your street.
With a complete miniature — but in relative size, huge! — pair of breasts, Rei-chan also has this mean and meandering hole that will keep your head swiveling and twirling till it is tickled into ejaculation. The breasts are also big enough and soft enough for you to indulge in some paizuri titty fucking!
To finish, here’s some pictures of cute model Saki Suzuki to get you in the right frame of mind!
Just released for Android phones, the Moe-yu app takes two concepts (moe and bathing) and lets users enjoy sensual bathing with special bishojo character Momori. Naturally Momori also talks to you (voiced by Asumi Kana) so you can, well, think you are having a conversation with a real girlfriend.
You can change backgrounds, and use the camera and augmented reality technology so that it even seems that the girl is actually in your bath at home with you!
