Every month in Japanese adult video brings many new porn debuts (shinjin). In October alone, we've spotted debuts from the svelte Mari Sano (佐野まり), 42-year-old jukujo mother (with milky breasts) Miyuki Nishino (西野美幸), the sporty Mana Tsuchiya (土谷まな), college girl Hinami-chan (ひなみちゃん), and Chihiro Konoha (木葉ちひろ). The latter two are purported to be a mere 20 years old, like Ichika Hoshimiya, who also released her own impressive first AV title this month. How is an avid AV fan meant to keep up? And that's just the major debuts, let alone all the ...

Ichika Hoshimiya is a 20-year-old college student, if you believe the marketing, born in June 1998. Whatever the exact truth of the details, one thing is certain: she is drop-dead gorgeous. With a slender body and the face of a tender beauty who could be presenting the TV news, Ichika has star material written all over her. He first porn release (SSNI00332) comes out this week on October 19th from S1 No.1 Style, who also produced the stunning AV debut of Shion Yumi. 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 ...

We love contemporary adult video but there's nothing like taking a trip down memory lane sometimes. Thankfully, we have the chance to do just that with a new documentary. M: Toru Muranishi Days of Wild Passion is about the "emperor of AV," Toru Muranishi, who oversaw a golden age of Japanese hardcore porn videos from the late 1980s to early 1990s with his company, Diamond Visual. At its height, it was raking in ¥10 billion a year! Muranishi is often credited with pioneering the sprawling gonzo-style "documentary" AV genre that is today so established and popular. M: Toru Muranishi ...

Akiho Yoshizawa, one of the biggest names in Japanese adult video, has announced her retirement from porn at the age of 34 and literally hundreds of AV and softcore (pink) credits to her name. After making her debut in AV in 2003, she has proven one of the most enduring stars in a tough and competitive industry. Some are saying that her departure after a 15-year career is yet another poignant symbol that the Heisei era is drawing to a close with the changeover in emperors in May 2019. Yoshizawa announced her "graduation" on October 1st on her personal blog, setting the official ...

After making her adult video debut in the spring and immediately attracting our attention, new star Saika Kawakita continues to impress and cement her rising career.

Since so few regular Japanese actresses are willing to do nudity, the producers of TV dramas are often forced to turn to porn stars and gravure idols. We are grateful for the results. Examples of this trend include Shoko Takahashi and Moe Amatsuka and, to a lesser extent, Yuka Kuramochi and Manami Hashimoto. Notwithstanding the valliant efforts of Fumi Nikaido, Kumi Takiuchi, Hikari Mitsushima, and some other generous ladies, few actresses are willing to drop their clothes on camera in the name of art and entertainment. Luckily there is a plenty of other talent the producers can draw on ...

A new adult video release from Mousouzoku and Kitixx claims to feature a Chinese student studying in Japan in her porn debut. The 132-minute AV (KTKZ00026) came out in mid-July, starring Wen Zhao (aka Wu Wallin). If the marketing is to be believed, this 19-year-old Chinese student has an (improbable) IQ of "282" and can speak eight languages. She is apparently studying chemistry. Hmm.... We have our doubts about the veracity of these details: Is she really Chinese? Is she really that smart? Is she really 19? But what's certain, though, is that she has sex and she knows ...
