Tenth Anniversary AIDS fundraiser for Tokyo porn channel, raises 4,204,836 yen

As a follow up to this article.

In its typically provocative style, adult satellite channel Paradise TV last weekend featured a masturbation relay race during the tenth incarnation of its two-day AIDS fund drive. The channel, which specializes in wacky porn programming, will hold its “24-Hour TV: Eroticism Saves the Earth” annual fund drive on Saturday and Sunday to raise money and awareness to assist in reducing the spread of AIDS.

The event occurred during August 25th to 26th, ending at 6pm. There were 4,690 people in attendance at the event. In the end, the total sum of the funds raise was exactly, 4,204,836 yen. This double the amount that was raised last year. The 10 adult video actresses that took part in the infamous oppai event, came together to thank those for attending and donating to the worthy cause.

Japan tells us the strongest Arashi pairings


In a recent issue of All Star magazine, we got to take a close look at several different artists pairings for many artists, including Yuzu, Kinki Kids, Kobukuro, and Tackey & Tsubasa, and even an introduction to Arashi's famed pairings of love. The ever flawless Sakurai Sho and Fukuyama Masaharu took first place for several categories. Even more, three Arashi pairings got voted into strongest pairing. Check it out below.

Fukuyama Masaharu was ranked #1 in the collegue category chosen by men, and #1 in boss category chosen by men and women earning him 3 titles. Sakurai ranked #1 in "colleague" chosen by girls and #1 in "subordinate" chosen by boys.

Kinki Kids show their pairing power by kissing during concerts. Tackey & Tsubasa consider their meeting to be based on faith. As you can see, it's very easy to pair them together.

3 Arashi pairings ranked for strongest include Sakumoto, Aimiya, and Yama and why so. Sakumoto because they are "mature, sexy, and beautiful". Aimiya because "they are like brothers, like friends, and enviable." Yama because they are "laid-back and refreshing."

Pairings are unexpectedly a big part of artists lives. Fans often pair different members of a group with each other, and pairing culture is a well-known feature of most fandoms. What's your favorite pairing, Arama?

Japanese Charity Breast-Squeeze!

A charity breast squeeze took place last weekend in Shinjuku, Tokyo as part of the “Erotica will Save the World” event.

Is this a typical reward for donating to charity in Japan? We go hands on… I mean… just read on for more details.

Collapse )

“Erotica will Save the World” is a 24-hour live-streamed fundraising event that took place last Saturday and Sunday (August 25-26). Men and women (yes, that is right) came out to enjoy two days of erotically-charged festivities: Some of the areas had stalls selling goods and DVDs, other areas had fun events such as a “Masturbation Marathon.” We’ll leave the details of that that competition up to your imagination.

The most popular attraction was the “Breast Fundraiser”, which encouraged people to donate to charity. How did it encourage them to do that? Well, if you donate some money you are allowed to squeeze the breasts of one of ten lovely adult video actresses (known as oppai momi in Japanese – yes, they have a phrase for it).

Here is a quick rundown of the “Breast Fundraiser”:

1. Line up, have your ID checked (must be over 18)
2. Donate money
3. Sterilize your hands (they don’t know where they have been)
4. Squeeze breasts (up to two squeezes per hand)

The organizers have recommended that if the allocated squeeze is not enough for you, to go through processes 1 to 4 again.

All money raised will be donated to STOP!AIDS, a charity aimed at promoting the awareness, treatment, and prevention of AIDS.
Oppai momi is particularly popular in Japan, and there are plenty of Japanese style pubs where you can go have a beer and also a squeeze of the waitresses breasts after a hard day in the office.


Metal Gear Solid Gets Live-Action Hollywood Film


A live-action Hollywood film adaptation of Konami's Metal Gear Solid game franchise was announced during the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary Party event on Thursday. Columbia Pictures will produce the film, and Sony Pictures Entertainment will produce and distribute. Avi Arad (Spider-Man films) is serving as the producer.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima said that he was looking for a partner who can make a film adaptation a reality for many years. He added that Arad is the one to do it, "without a doubt." Arad came to Japan to appear at the event, and he promised to make a wonderful film with a spirit faithful to the original games made by Kojima.

Arad has been prominent in Hollywood industry circles as a major producer behind the Marvel Studios film franchises such as X-Men, Spider-Man, and Iron Man. Arad is still involved in the Marvel films, but he resigned as the head of Marvel Studios to form his own production company in 2006.

Arad has been involved in Dreamworks' planned live-action adaptation of Masamune Shirow's science-fiction manga Ghost in the Shell. He was installed as a chair of Production I.G., LLC., the American affiliate of Ghost in the Shell's anime studio Production I.G, in 2010. He also co-created The Innocent series in the digital anthology Yen Plus last year.

Up until yesterday Fukuoka City was made up of six wards: Chuo-ku, Minami-ku, Higashi-ku, Sawara-ku, and Hakata-ku. However today a seventh “virtual” ward was created. The name of the ward is Kawaii-ku or in English, “Cute Ward”. Registration of citizens begins today online. Printed citizen certificates will be available for ¥300 by the end of September. The city hopes to attract 10,000 cuties. The leader (ku-cho) of “Cute Ward” is AKB48 member Mariko Shinoda, originally from Itoshima, Fukuoka. She will be involved in many upcoming promotional projects to generate awareness about Fukuoka City. One of the goals is to publicize Fukuoka’s cute assets and cute culture. The practice of using celebrities to promote cities in Japan is becoming popular, but Fukuoka City is the first to create a Cute Ward!



But seriously, Fukuoka is such a nice place to live in. I'm there almost every year, arama should try visiting as well if you haven't!

Kudo Shizuka to release new single, song written by Ayaka

“Kimi ga Kureta Mono” was written and composed by singer-songwriter Ayaka. This marks her first time providing a song for another artist. The song is described as a medium-tempo ballad that conveys the theme “to think about an important person”. Ayaka commented, “Since this is my first time providing a song, I’m nervous, but I was very moved after hearing Kudo-san sing it.

Kudo expressed, “The completed song is wonderful, and I like it very much myself. I want many people to listen to it.” The singer will also hold a 25th anniversary concert on November 4th at Billboard Live Tokyo in Akasaka.


Yoshitaka Yuriko to appear in Korean drama "Vampire Prosecutor 2"


On August 29th, it was revealed that actress Yoshitaka Yuriko will be making an appearance in the Korean drama “Vampire Prosecutor 2“.

Yoshitaka commented, “Recently I have been really interested in Asian dramas, and this drama that I encountered has the best timing. I’m currently in the middle of shooting, and I’m struggling with it, but it’s for me to step up as an actress.”

“Vampire Prosecutor 2″ is an investigative drama in which a prosecutor, played by Yun Jung Hoon, suddenly becomes a vampire. She then tries to solve several mysterious cases by utilizing his ability as a vampire.

Yoshitaka will play the best fortune teller in Japan who analyzes the colors of people’s aura and reads tarot cards. Her first appearance will be on the second episode, and she will also make an appearance after the ninth episode as well.

Reportedly, Yoshitaka challenges herself in some dangerous scenes without using a stand-in, and she does not hesitate to lift the mood on set during standby time. On the overseas shoot, Yoshitaka commented, “Sometimes I feel disappointed in myself as I come to a stop without being able to perform my part credibly, but I was motivated that all I could do now was not to escape and give up. I think it was the first feeling that arose out of fear.”

“Vampire Prosecutor 2″ will begin airing on OCN starting on September 9th in Korea.

Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs

akb48-1830m nogizaka46-hashire!_bicycle bigbang_alive_2012_making_collection

Popular idol group, AKB48, have achieved their 2nd consecutive week at the top of the albums chart with "1830m." This is the first time for the group to achieve 2 consecutive weeks either with a single or album since their debut 7 years ago. This is also Maeda Atsuko's last album as an AKB48 member before her graduation. The last time a female group achieved 2 weeks in a row at the top was Twelve Girls Band with "Twelve Girls Band ~Beautiful Energy~" (July 2003), 9 years ago. As for the first time it happened, it was SPEED with "RISE" (April 1998), 14 years and 4 months ago. The album's total for 2 weeks now is 935k. The last time a female act achieved the 900k mark in 2 weeks with an original studio album was Hamasaki Ayumi with "RAINBOW" (December 2002), 9 years and 8 months ago.

In the singles chart, idol group Nogizaka46, have reached the no.1 spot for the 2nd time in a row with their 3rd single, "Hashire! Bicycle." This follows their 2nd single released in May, "Oide Shampoo." Although they're considered AKB48's 'official rival', since they are also 48-related, this means this is the first time for 48-family to achieve simultaneous domination in both singles and albums chart, with AKB48 achieving their 2nd week in a row at the top of the albums chart.

Posting the top 30 albums/singles and the top 10 music-DVDs. The second column in the top 10 refers to sales in 2012. New release in bold.

Collapse )

At this rate, AKB will only hit 1 million in another 2 weeks at least, and won't be enough to surpass Mr.Children's "macro" this year. Still, we're getting 3 million-selling albums compared to none last year, and it'd be lovely to have a 4th one if we can! :)

This is AAA's best-selling first week for albums, right? I would have loved for TOKIO to sell more but still, congrats for their top 5 position. Also congrats to ACE OF SPADES, and OOR got their best-selling single so far! XD
