After leaving AKB48, Morning Musume, or another related idol group, most performers sadly disappear into obscurity. A rare few establish a mainstream careers in acting or entertainment. A growing number enter adult video. Another subset try to ramp up the sexiness and pose for semi-nude gravure shoots. Examples of the latter include the alluring Mariya Nagao, delightfully curvy Natsumi Hirajima, Ayaka Umeda, Aika Ota, and Machiko Tezuka. Now another fine young lady joins their esteemed ranks: Seira Miyazawa, the 25-year-old former member of Nogizaka46, has posed for a Weekly Playboy ...

Each month, many women debut in adult video to different levels of hype and fanfare. Just as many quickly disappear after their contracts end or resurface under a new performer name. But surely this young lady is set to be one of the biggest stars in Japanese pornography? The angelic-looking Mahiro Tadai (唯井まひろ) will make her debut in adult video with a new title released on SOD Star on June 7th. Born in March 2000, Mahiro Tadaima is a mere 18 years old. Doesn't that make you feel old?! The 180-minute video is rather unoriginally called "Mahiro Tadaima 18 Years Old AV ...

If this is what the ongoing cleaning-up of Shinjuku's notorious red-light district means, then bring it on. The AV and gravure idols magazine Weekly Playboy is opening a bar in Kabukicho from June 10th. Every night, different gravure models will be serving drinks at Shupure Sakaba (Weekly Playboy Bar) to a few very lucky customers. This is an exclusive VIP bar with just five seats per session and a limit of only three seatings per night. Needless to say, reservations are a must and there is a hefty cover charge of ¥10,000 for one hour and a four-course meal (drinks and food not in ...

Haruna Kojima is about to turn 29 but is still a member of an idol group. That's either dedication or desperation, it seems. Only a very small number of former AKB48 idols have forged successful secondary careers. Most have vanished. Some have become porn stars. Perhaps conscious of this, Haruna Kojima has delayed her graduation for some time. It was first announced in 2016. But it seems it is finally happening this month, and this year has seen various graduation events to finalize her departure from the one-time supergroup. And so it is no surprise that she has celebrated her 12 years ...

Disgraced gravure idol and now one of AV's top porn stars Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki has joined her fellow porn newcomer Yua Mikami (Momona Kito) for what must be the sexiest photo shoot of the year. These nude shots, taken for Weekly Playboy in the autumn, really show off both their voluptuous bodies to the full. What's more, in a more recent subsequent nude photo shoot the two were joined by none other than Mana Sakura, who is already a major star in her own right. There was even a 30-minute video to accompany the "lesbian threesome" ...

Earlier this year Weekly Playboy already organized one of the best photo shoots ever when they brought together 50 gravure idols in one studio. As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations the magazine also put up a billboard in Shinjuku with life-sized images of top models. Now the generous editors have followed up with 51 Japanese porn stars, all lined up naked in one mega assembly. Sadly the nipples and pussie are censored for the online version (the print edition, maybe not so). What's the point of getting all this flesh together if you're not going to show ...

Fumi Nikaido has seen her acting career over the past two or three years, though she started off as a junior idol and much of her popularity -- for reasons that are apparent -- still hinges on her natural looks. Oh, boy, does she know how to exploit them. She has already shown off her naked butt for us in 2014. Now the Okinawan-born, English-speaking vixen tempts us by dressing up for Weekly Playboy (as part of a big 50th-anniversary issue) as a bunny girl. We love how the photo shoot really shows off her curves and saucy looks. She's a gal who clearly ...

Remember we blogged about the Japanese female bodybuilder onahole in February? We included some information on Reika Saiki, a gravure model and idol who is famous (and popular) for her muscles. If femdom's your thing, then you really need to take a gander at Reika! Even better, this gal is smart -- she graduated from Keio University. Still only 23, she recently posed for Weekly Playboy. The results are a wet dream come true for muscular women fetishists... Unlike some extreme cases of this kind of fetish, Reika still has a really cute face and is svelte ...

After coming very close to stripping off and showing us her nude body last year, Yuka Kuramochi has finally done it: taken all her clothes off. That being said, sadly this isn't a porn debut for the famously big-butted gravure idol nor even a full-frontal hair nude shoot. But it's the most naked she's ever got and boy, are we glad she did it. The series of "butt artisan" shots in Weekly Playboy showed us her unclothed ass as well as once again coming close to revealing a fully shaved paipan pussy. Come on, Yuka, you are just one step away from the inevitable ...
