Voice actress and singer Yuka Iguchi may now be in her mid-thirties but she looks 10 years younger. And the reason? She works out a ton in the gym. She recently posed for a gym-themed photo shoot for Tarzan magazine that shows her in action during a workout. She has revealed some more about how she got in shape for her recent photo book, which came out in April and delighted fans. Iguchi trained for weeks to hone her body (and especially her butt), losing 10 kg in three months and trimming the weight she had gained during the pandemic. It feels like she is remaking herself ...

In Japan, female voice performers are incredibly popular as idols and celebrities despite only displaying their oral talents in their work for anime series and movies. Some are able to carve out lucrative sidelines as models, singers, and gravure idols. If they have the looks and following for this, it is usually apparent pretty quickly and their agencies don't miss a chance to make some extra yen. But others bide their time. Such is the case with Minori Chihara (茅原実里), the seiyu who has waited until her forties to cement her gravure career. Great news if you love Minori Chihara. ...

Rina Koike has been part of our lives (and this blog) for so long, we almost forgot she was still doing gravure! Having made her debut two decades ago as an actress -- she appeared in a Sailor Moon adaptation way back in 2004 -- and now reaching the ripe old age of 30, Koike will release her first photo book in eight years to celebrate the milestone. It was shot in Vietnam and features shots of the doe-eyed model in the Southeast Asia country's famous outdoor markets. The best, most alluring shots, though, are indoors and more intimate, as these preview pics show. The as-yet ...

Former race queen and gravure idol Chisato Morishita is committed to launching a career as a politician for the conservative Liberal Democratic Party. As reported here before, she stood for election in Miyagi Prefecture in 2021. Though ultimately unsuccessful, she is still hoping to win a seat at the next election. By chance, we actually passed through the area earlier this year and saw lots of posters for her dotting the landscape. Now aged 42, the unmarried Morishita was one of the biggest gradols in the late 2000s and a regular face on TV. Her last gravure shoot was in around 2019 with ...

Actress and model Ayame Misaki (水崎綾女) has been part of our lives since the early 2010s (this was when her career began to really pick up but we were slow to catch on -- she actually made her gravure debut way back in 2005). Now 35 years old, she gets better and better with age. As she has got older, she has gotten more beautiful and more athletic. Her sun-kissed body is now very voluptuous and muscular, with a finely shaped butt and waist that looks like she's ready to take charge of things in the bedroom. Her latest photo book is glossy eyes, which came out from Kodansha a few ...

In December last year, we showcased the mature beauty that is svelte and sexy Yoko Kumada, who continues to release image videos in her forties. Aging like a fine wine, the athletic yet mature Yoko is now 41 but still going strong. Her latest gravure image DVD comes out in late April, a couple of weeks shy of her 42nd birthday. It's called Bath of Temptation and has a hot spring theme, a common trope in the Japanese erotic imagination. Such image DVDs are not classified as porn, so there's no actual nudity, but the footage tends to push things as far as they can go without revealing ...

In early March, we reported on the exciting news that former AKB48 idol and nude model Satomi Kaneko was to make her porn debut as Kiho Kanematsu, after she had supposedly retired in 2023. We can now share the first preview images from her debut, which comes out from Muteki, a specialist is such crossovers. The 34-year-old's first AV, the 176-minute 18Gold (TEK00099), was released on digital formats on April 2 . We have yet to see the AV. If you've caught it already, please let us know your assessment of the quality. From the previews, it looks quite conventional, though Kaneko/Kanematsu's ...

Earlier this year, we wrote about the surprise yet very, very welcome return to gravure of two major stars now in their late thirties: Aya Ueto and Haruka Ayase. Indeed, as the likes of Yoko Kumada amply demonstrate, you can continue a career in gravure into your forties. While the industry is dominated by ladies in their twenties or late teens, we like to see veterans and survivors in there, and love a good comeback story. But even we were surprised by the return of Erika Yamakawa to gravure after a 20-year break. Now aged 42 and the mother of two children, the model made her gravure ...

Japanese singer and voice actress Yuka Iguchi is to release a photo book to celebrate her twentieth anniversary in the industry. More More More comes out from Kadokawa on April 3 and, judging by the preview images, lives up to its title, showing us more of the seiyu than ever before. Yuka spends a lot of the time in the gym, if her social media is anything to go by, and it's in evidence with the toned, healthy trim of her body, especially her butt. Here is Yuka doing some training in the gym. Despite firmly entering jukujo territory, the unmarried 35-year-old doesn't look a day ...

The former AKB48 idol Satomi Kaneko officially retired last year and we thought it was the last we would see of her. How wrong we are. Today comes the happy news that Satomi Kaneko is to make her porn debut with the Muteki label -- which specializes in such industry crossover debuts -- and under the name Kiho Kanematsu (金松季歩). It is common, often for contractual reasons, for idols to change their professional name when transition into porn, or even just when switching management agencies. Kaneko/Kanematsu announced her new professional name about a week ago, along with a new shoot ...
