We recently wrote up a list of our favorite haafu Japanese gravure idols as well as reporting about a new half-Indian, half-Japanese porn star. Now we have another great example to add to this burgeoning pantheon of mixed-race stunners. Making her porn debut this month, the 22-year-old Karen Ishida apparently has a Japanese father and a Portuguese mother. Of course, the veracity of this may be somewhat suspect, along with most of the marketing guff that AV labels put out (the label also claims she's a college student), but you can't argue with the attractive Eurasian ...

We first reported about the awesome nude scene by gravure idol Yurina Yanagi back in November. Now that the film Junpei, Think Again has become available online, the full extent of the scene in question has come to light. And if you're one of Yurina Yanagi's thousands of fans, then you're in for a real treat. We made a few screen grabs to share with you all today. In the sex scene, which appears at around the 43-minute mark, Yurina lies down on a bed while her partner kisses her sweaty, curvy chest and stomach, including a nice close-up of her nipples being licked. Wow, Christmas came ...

Japanese television unwittingly gave air time to a popular porn star when it was interviewing people about the recent SoftBank network outrage that left users in Tokyo completely without phone connections for several hours. While not named in the interviews, Momo Sakura was one of the people the cameras spoke to about their experience dealing with the blackout. Sakura was filmed at a train station complaining about her inability to use Line or make calls. And this is what Momo Sakura looks like during the day when different kinds of cameras are rolling. You have give ...

She tempted us with her hot but tame sex scenes in TV drama for a while but thirtysomething gravure idol Manami Hashimoto finally did a proper nude sex scene in the film And Then There Was Light (in Japanese, Hikari), which came out in Japan last year. And finally some screengrabs are floating around, though we have to apologise for the poor quality. Hopefully we can get our own hands on a DVD or better images soon. There are two sex or nude scenes of note in the drama to enjoy, it seems. In one, Manami Hashimoto has sex with her young male lover (played by Eita) in his apartment. They ...

As the Heisei period enters its final months, what better time to look back to... the Showa days! Clearly there is still something alluring about the 1970s and 1980s, given the way idol Yumi Asahina's recent photo book brilliantly imitated their vintage charms, and the references to these older style of shoots made by Iori and Rukino. We wanted to take a trip back in time and pick out five examples of Japanese ladies who hit it big back in the 1970s and 1980s. (This isn't actually our first stab at doing this of list. For other examples, check out the selection we made back in ...

Asahi Mizuno, one of the biggest names in adult video, announced her retirement from porn on December 1st. Posting the announcement on Twitter, she says she will continue to appear in AV until the end of February, which marks her sixth anniversary since entering the industry. Of course, it's possible that she might just be leaving her current agency, C-more Entertainment, and will graduate to somewhere else under a new performer name, perhaps after a short period of time off. Either way, fans have less than three months of official new Asahi Mizuno porn to consume. We can only ...

The AKB48 idol Yuki Kashiwagi, whose fans once turned her into a robot, has stripped down to her panties in an episode of the current TV drama Kono koi wa tsumi na no ka!? (Is This Love a Crime?!). In what is probably a very Japanese touch, the panties had cute strawberries on them. While this time there is little more than just a glimpse at the back of her panties, the trailer for the next episode of the show hints at some shots of her bust. Pretty tame stuff, sure, but we reckon fans are delighted. The 27-year-old Yuki Kashiwagi, aka Yukirin, is one of the most ...

We're starting to wind down for the year, looking forward to Christmas and taking a view back over the months that have passed for the best adult news stories and toys in Japan. Perhaps we'll put that in a post one day soon later in the month. What were the best porn titles we saw during 2018? With so many great debuts throughout the year, that's a harder question to answer. Plus there were all the great AV we saw with established stars. It's a question that becomes especially tricky when exciting releases like this burst onto the market in December, making us forget much of what we ...

Ten years of Muteki! It's hard to believe that a porn label that is now so central to our lives and this blog's content is only a decade old! Muteki specializes in crossovers, launching adult video careers for women after they first build up a following as a model, gravure idol, music idol, actress, or something in mainstream entertainment. Over the years, it has overseen the porn debuts of many prominent stars, including Miyako Akane, Mero Imai, Miu Nakamura, Anri Sakaguchi, and Chiharu Komatsu. Now you can celebrate the label's incredible achievements with a special pillow ...

The tebura or "hand bra" is a frequent trope in gravure. What can be more alluring, it seems, than an idol or model covering her breasts with just her bare hands? Recent examples include Rola and Minami Minegishi. It has become something of a rite of passage for AKB-kei alumni, not least Minegishi, Haruna Kojima, Yuko Oshima, Kei Jonishi. It can also get them into trouble, though, as the lesson of Tomomi Kasai notably shows. Her post-AKB career never recovered. The latest idol to try her luck with this tactic is Ayaka Umeda, formerly of AKB48 and NMB48. However, her tebura shot, ...
