When Eightman Production announced the major debut of a new porn star in January 2019 and teased fans that it was a former idol, it didn't take studious netizens long to identify the lady in question. Though the PR boasted that the lady in question was an idol who has appeared on TV variety shows, released a photo book, and done a stint as a regular gravure idol, the truth did not quite live up to the hype. Some speculated, without much actual hope, that it might be 19-year-old Manaka Shida, who has just announced her graduation from Keyakizaka46. Now THAT would be a development ...

While it is sometimes regarded as a problematic appellation, "haafu" (half Japanese, half something else) are generally considered exotic and glamorous in Japan and, as such, command prestigious positions in fashion, entertainment, acting, and other walks of life. Not surprisingly, then, there are also a few fair haafu gravure idols and even some in Japanese adult video. The most famous, of course, was Maria Ozawa, but the likes of the mononymous Sarah and Michelle Takizawa are also up there among the most popular ladies. Now there may be a new arrival to give them a run for their ...

Let's put the "video" back into adult video. Sure, we love all the current and recent Japanese porn stars, but let's take a trip back a few more years to remember some of the stars of yesterday, long before there was streaming or even DVDs. We previously looked at a list of AV stars from the 1990s and 2000s that Japanese men now in their forties remember fondly. Adding to this, here are seven retired porn stars that deserve to go down in history. Before the comments start filling up with anger and fury, rest assured we're not saying that these ladies are the only ex-AV idols worth ...

A glimpse at the holy grail has slipped through the censors into the public domain. Gravure idol Yuno Ohara has posed for Weekly Shonen magazine. The 19-year-old former member of Dream5 has an F cup that promises to serve her well in her gravure career. A few idols strip off for nude shoots when they get older and the job offers dry up. After all, what better than a hair nude shoot to revive a flagging career? It sometimes works wonders. An even smaller number of idols pose nude when they are still young, such as Rie Miyazawa, Miho Kanno, and Chiaki Kuriyama. For this, we are ...

Former AKB48 idol Ayaka Umeda has attempted to further her post-supergroup career with a new photo book -- and one which notches things up a few levels of sexiness. The 29-year-old, who was also a member of NMB48 and left the AKB world in 2016 after a ten-year stint, has posed semi-nude for an as-yet untitled first photo book scheduled for release this December. Knowing she is on the cusp of thirty and jukujo territory, it's make or break for her career. As such, she's got her ass out during the shoot -- alluring preview images from which are now spreading like wildfire online. Older ...

Hoshimiya's inaugural porn runs to 171 minutes, which is a heck of a lot longer than most people can manage in a ...

Regular readers will know we are always on the lookout for strong adult video debuts, for the ladies who might be the future stars of the industry. We think we may have found another one. Released on October 7th, Shion Yumi made her debut in a 156-minute release (SSNI00321) on the label S1 No.1 Style. (Her family name might look like a first name, but it's actually pronounced long as "Yuumi.") Shion Yumi's main selling point, as far as we see it, is her "miracle" body that balances a small frame of just 149cm (4.9 feet) in height with huge I-cup breasts. All right, Japanese cup ...
