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. She has released several AV over the summer and is already on to her sixth title! That's quite a busy few months. Her latest in this 180-minute epic (SSNI00309), released in mid-September from S1 No.1 Style, that claims to document Kawakita's "greatest orgasm." We're not sure of the veracity of such a marketing claim, but Saika-chan seems to have a grand time nonetheless -- as these preview images ...

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 ...

Another day, another AV debut. But this is one that certainly looks set to make a splash.

Following its earlier interview with former porn star Emiri Okazaki, Asian Boss did an interview with a male AV performer. While it would have been cool and more topical to see an interview with a current performer, such as the busy (and recently married) Shimiken, the legendary Taka Kato is nonetheless a fantastic choice. The video first came out earlier this month and has already attracted over 500,000 views. People clearly remember Taka Kato and want to hear his insights into the world of adult video. Yes, Taka Kato -- the man whose skillful fingers could induce a quivering orgasm ...

The beautiful Suzu Honjo is continuing to impress Japan and the world at large as she develops her burgeoning career further. As regular readers will know, the Yamanashi native already made a huge splash with her porn debut in spring that, at least according to the marketing, achieved 10,000 preorders -- this in a culture of over-saturation of adult video, where "bestsellers" typically only sell a few thousand. Her second AV -- kind of strangely titled as her "second debut" -- came out in late June from a Soft on Demand label. The 192-minute feature (1STAR00933) is directed by ...
