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 ...

Shimiken (Ken Shimizu) has announced his marriage to the blogger and writer Haruka Ito after apparently dating for four years. The announcement came online on July 15th with a tweeted picture of the happy couple. Probably the best-known and most famous adult video actor, the 38-year-old muscular performer has appeared in thousands of porn releases, in the process having sex with literally thousands of women. A tiny selection of his conquests include Melo Imai, Yua Mikami, and Shoko Takasaki. He also once opened a "poo curry" restaurant in Tokyo. Haruka Ito (32) is most famous for ...

Sometimes a bit of experience makes a big different. Sayuri Miyazono is the latest Japanese porn debutant to catch our eye and she's in a different kind of league to the hundreds of other new adult video stars. Miyazono is 32 years old, putting her loosely in the jukujo "mature woman" category that is increasingly popular in the mainstream, thanks to the seductive likes of Mitsu Dan and Manami Hashimoto. Sayuri's slender and pale Asian body is coupled with an E-cup bust and pretty face of the kind that can be seen almost any day around Tokyo. And that's the point. She's meant to be ...

Given the sheer volume of Japanese adult video produced each year and how many female performers are involved, it's no surprise that sometimes people are going to be exposed for having secret careers in porn. This has in the past happened with nurses, Goldman Sachs employees, voice actresses, and even TV presenters. And it can happen with young students. The 1996-born Yumi Suzuki was crowned Miss Campus at the women-only Atomi University, winning the contest for her charms and pretty looks. But, if the online rumors are the be believed, the campus queen has a whole other side and one ...

Even if you're not an avid consumer, there's no denying that Japanese adult video is an incredible thing. The porn industry is often very fast to respond to recent trends and developments, often through humor -- such as the Ryutaro Nonomura parody from 2015 or, from last year, a Nao Mizumi release that imitated a popular comedy routine. Now AV is getting into the mood of the World Cup. Japan has so far done quite well, proceeding to the last 16 and with jubilant crowds gathering in downtown Osaka and Tokyo, in particular, to celebrate each victory late at night. These scenes of ...

Regular readers will note that we have recently written a lot about new adult video stars. In just the past few weeks we have blogged about debuts from @yano_puple, Mahiro Tadai, and Rina Minami. Our latest scholarly interest lies in rookie JAV star Noa Mizuhara, who debuted from S1 in March with a four-hour epic and has since gone on to appear in several AV releases. The slender 20-year-old has previously released an "image video" in summer 2017 (this is like a very sexy gravure video in which the star is almost naked but there is no actually sex and it's usually just her alone the whole ...

Last month, news broke that former AKB48 member Marie Watanabe had appeared in porn as an "amateur" (shiroto) performer. Though she graduated from AKB48 way back in 2007 and actually made very few professional concert appearances with the music group, local netizens were still very excited by what they saw of Watanabe in action -- not least the thrill of yet another AKB idol getting down and dirty. The buzz was so strong that it seems she was approached by porn producers to do more. Now performing under the new professional name of Nana Mizushima, Watanabe will make her official AV ...

We wrote last week about the rumors that Saki Sudo, the 22-year-old wife of recently deceased 77-year-old Kosuke "Don Juan" Nozaki, had a past porn career as an "amateur performer." Now further proof has emerged. Again appearing under the name of Yurika, netizens have dug up another entry in her catalog of JAV credits. Titled simply "Yurika" (GAREA451), the 104-minute was released by the G-AREA porn label in January 2018 -- just before Sudo tied the knot with Nozaki in February. Intense tabloid media and online interest in Sudo and her involvement with the late Mr Nozaki has pushed ...

Say your thanks to the 8 million gods of Shinto. The latest major adult video debut is an idol with a distinctly Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Harajuku vibe. @yano_purple, as she is known, has purple dyed hair and sweet looks. She might be one of the young girls you see in outrageously colorful clothes and cosplay on the streets of Harajuku or Shibuya. Luckily for us she got scouted and tempted into a porn career. "Estimated" (as the marketing phrases it) to be 20 years old, she's making debut this month with a 126-minute release (1KMHR00039) from SOD Create. The AV has a threesome theme and in ...
