Koichiro Uno's Wet and Riding (宇能鴻一郎の濡れて騎る) (Japan, 1982) [BD] - 2/5
Koichiro Uno was that other writer of erotic novels that Nikkatsu used as the basis for many of their films. He didn't get nearly as many adaptations as Oniroku Dan, though. One thing all his works have in common is a female narrator and this gets carried over into the film versions as well. Here we get Junko Asahina as bored housewife Yoko telling us about her sexual fantasies and her husband's libidinal shortcomings until a condom salesman gives her a demonstration of his wares and a liberated female friend gets her involved in the partner-swapping lifestyle. It is all ... slightly amusing, I guess. Nobutaka Masutomi in a ridiculous get-up is the best thing about it in his two short scenes as a perverted jazz dance instructor (!) who fingerbangs his students to teach them how to relax.

This popped up on Japanese streaming site U-Next.
Luckily, the new HD remaster is also on amazon now. I second the rating. Would be interesting to find out how much Ishii changed the source novel because things really are a bit more interesting than in your average Oniroku Dan bondage/enema (don't worry, there's explosive diarrhea in this as well) epics. I mean, he definitely changed the names to his usual Nami/Muraki dynamics, right?

- http://www.happinet-p.com/jp3/releases/

June 3rd

Blu-Ray
- Wife to be Sacrificed (生贄夫人) (Masaru Konuma, 1974)
- High School Teacher: Maturing (高校教師 成熟) (Shogoro Nishimura, 1985)

DVD
- Eve-chan no hime (イヴちゃんの姫) (Shusuke Kaneko, 1984)

+ 「志麻いづみ 鎌倉夫人 みだれ絹蒲団」(1983) &「小川亜佐美の おんなSEXカウンセラー 濡れ濡れテクニック」(1981)
This is a bit off an oddity. It's two a straight-to-video short features, each running approx 30 min and shot on video cameras instead of film, bundled together. They originally came out on VHS in 1981 and 1983. The directors are Katsuhiko Fujii and Shogoro Nishimura.

Image


August 5th

Blu-Ray
- Black Rose Ascension (黒薔薇昇天) (Tatsumi Kumashiro, 1975)
- Double Bed (ダブルベッド) (Toshiya Fujita, 1983)

DVD
- Wandering Seagull: Night In Kushiro (さすらいかもめ 釧路の女) (さすらいかもめ -釧路の夜-) (Shogoro Nishimura, 1973) *

Another VHS double with running times of 50m and 30m, directed by 佐々木尚 and 池田正一 (Shoichi Ikeda)

* Something odd going on with the title. Most databases, including some Japanese ones (jmdb) call this film さすらいかもめ -釧路の- but Happinet, Nikkatsu and the poster say さすらいかもめ 釧路の. Which means the English title is also mistranslated (should be "Woman" or "Person" instead of "Night"). And to add to the confusion, the furigana in the poster says 女 is not to be read as "onna" but as "hito" instead. And I do believe these are the one and same film because no database, including Nikkatsu's own, list both titles, only one of them, and the cast, director and release date (or month) is the same.

Image

So, absolutely nothing for me to buy. OH! Takarazuka is a cute film though, I even had a dream of Jun Miho once, haha. And Night/Woman/Person in Kushiro interests me a tiny bit because Nishimura's 60's mainstream films were so good that I keep imagining there'd be at least one good film in his Roman Porno catalogue too (ok, there is, Fujunna kankei from 1984 is great). And maybe I should try Double Bed again. I saw 30 min of it and were just bored. But it's written by Haruhiko Arai, so...

I'll sit all of these out as well. Mostly baffling choices, as usual. But to be honest I didn't expect them to release anything this close to the Olympics, so it's not a huge disappointment.

March 10, 2020 EDIT

I finally did what I should’ve done more than a decade ago. I split the Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink) thread in two.

1. Toei Pinky Violence thread:
- Toei Pinky Violence + Toei Porno + comparable big studio (non-porno studio) productions by Toho (e.g. Rica), Daiei (e.g. Decapitation Island) etc.

2: Nikkatsu Roman Porno + Pink thread:
- Nikkatsu Roman Porno + Pink Films e.g. Shintoho, Wakamatsu, independents

It’s still work in progress. Some posts may be in the wrong thread.

Don’t stress too much about the split. If you don’t know which thread to post in, just pick one that feels more suitable. The main idea was the separate Toei’s Pinky Violence and Nikkatsu’s Roman Porno, and the rest shall go in whichever feels more suitable (the Toei thread for the more mainstream type of films with eros flavour, the Nikkatsu thread for the more genuine pink / sleaze type of films).

We also have the Japanese Cult Cinema thread to cover films that don’t have the pinky violence / girl gang / pink / eros emphasis (anything from yakuza to karate to samurai fits there).

Roman Porno and the R15+ Versions

You may have noticed that some Nikkatsu Roman Porno titles have been popping up as “R15 Version” [R15+版] in some distribution platforms for a few years. For example, all Toei Channel TV broadcastings are marked as “R15 Version”, and some streaming versions have had the same banner.

At the same time the retail DVD, BD and Amazon Prime stream releases are still marked as R18+. So what’s the deal?

I don’t have a comprehensive answer, but here’s something. Jealousy Game (1982):

TOP: Amazon Prime “R18” Stream
Bottom: Toei Channel “R15+ Version” on TV

Image

Image

Image

Image

The censorship appears only in these two shots in the film, about 5 seconds each.

(That censorship is idiotic beyond belief, btw. There is NO EXPLICIT NUDITY or real sex in the uncut version either. If anything, the censored version is now the more shocking one because it creates a false illusion of genitals or actual intercourse having been visible prior to censorship!).

The banner at the end of the Toei Channel broadcasting shows the R15+ rating was granted for this video version by the ratings board Eirin.
Image

The original Erin logo on the print has different ID number.
Image

Now, does this mean that all “R15+ Versions” have this kind of censorship? Apparently not. Toei Channel’s Circuit of Sorrow was also an “R15+ Version”, but I could not notice any censorship there (I have not seen any other release of the film, though). I recorded Erotic Liaisons as well, and while I haven’t watched that recording yet, browsing through the sex scenes did not reveal any visual censorship.

This is more speculation that confirmed facts, but it seems to me that “R15+ Version” can either refer to a censored version or simply a new rating that was granted without censorship (remember how Toei’s Horror’s of Malformed Men went from R18+ to PG-12 upon re-rating a few years ago?).

Re: The Roman Porno + Pink thread

Post by HungFist »

As suggested above, I re-watched Yoichi Higashi’s near-excellent motorbike road movie and psychological relationship drama Jealousy Game (ジェラシーゲーム) (1982), starring Toei’s delinquent girl boss Reiko Oshida.

This was one of Nikkatsu’s Eros daisaku (エロス大作) films, which came with padded running times, were released as double (instead of triple) features and were aimed at more mainstream(ish) audiences. All cast members here (Oshida, Yosuke Natsuki, Hiroaki Murakami and Hitomi Takahashi) were mainstream actors.

The film follows a married couple (Oshida and Natsuki) travelling through Hokkaido on a Harley Davidson. A young couple (Murakami and Takahashi) is heading the same direction by car. After a heated argument Oshida decides to hitch a ride and gets picked up by Murakami, who has just been left by manipulative girlfriend Takahashi. Husband Natsuki meanwhile picks up Takahashi at the back of his Harley without realizing what he's getting into.

The film’s title should explain the rest.

A mature, well acted and stylish (the road trip and motorbike aspect add a lot) human relationship drama, slightly hurt by the ungrateful and perhaps sexist role Takahashi has to play. The film was written by Akiko Tanaka, one of the few female writers who ever got associated with Roman Porno (another was Machiko Nasu). The music was composed by Ichiro Araki. Oh and in case someone is wondering, yes, Oshida does lose her clothing in this one.

The caps are from Toei Channel. Amazon’s HD stream has better compression, but looks otherwise the same. The Blu-Ray no doubt looks the same as well. This only came out on VHS before, so I’m sure this is the only HD master in existence.

McCrutchy at blu-ray.com noticed this Feb. 2020 announcement that had completely gone under my radar.

McCrutchy;17604001 wrote:So I was browsing the other day and finally found something of a press announcement for the 2020 releases here:

https://www.nikkatsu.com/news/202002/003700.html

This article is from 27 February 2020 and in addition to listing titles, basically says that Nikkatsu will release 50 DVD/Blu-ray titles in the fiscal year 2020 (1 April 2020 - 31 March 2021) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Roman Porno in 2021, although the first film came out in November 1971, which would put it well within fiscal year 2021.

Altogether, 4 Blu-rays and 16 DVDs are set for release in June and August 2020, which would mean that a further 30 titles (if I had to guess, I would hope for at least 6 Blu-rays) were initially planned to be released after August 2020 and before April 2021. The article, however, was written largely before the coronavirus pandemic, so obviously, future releases are not necessarily going forward as planned.
So there should more titles coming in addition to those 16 (or 18 if we count the two double feature dvds as 4 separate titles) announced before.

Note that I missed two DTV titles (which of course aren't real Roman Porno, but Nikkatsu is now releasing them in this series anyway) before

June (DVD)

『軽井沢夫人-官能の夜想曲-』

- https://www.nikkatsu-romanporno.com/bddvd2020/

50 titles confirmed, but only June and August titles listed so far.

And dear God, they've actually got a good looking artwork for Wife to Be Sacrificed!

A number of films produced by Wakamatsu Pro have started to become available to stream in HD at the company's website. This includes several films by Wakamatsu, Adachi and also the previously unavailable (as far as I know) Japanese version of Tatsumi Kumashiro's Japanese-German co-production Woman with a Red Hat (赤い帽子の女 aka Die Frau mit dem Roten Hut) (1982):

Amazon hasn't shipped "adult titles" outside Japan for many years but their search engine not showing them is new. I can open your links without any problem, though. Very odd, but I'm glad they're still on track.

I had the same (?) issue with Amazon US and UK some months ago when they weren't sending anything abroad due to Corona. Only 3rd party marketplace items showed up on search if I had my shipping address specified as anything other than US/UK. I needed a direct link to access any other item pages, e.g. Criterion's Bruce Lee set or Eureka BDs. Seems like Amazon.jp is now applying that to adult items.

It looks to be IP address based. If I use a Japanese IP address everything shows up as it should, even if it says on the product page that the items can't be shipped to my address. Oh well, it's not like I've ordered anything from amazon since they decided top keep their porn for themselves. Plenty of other stores that still like my money.

More Nikkatsu roman porno releases from Happinet on January 8th and March 3rd, 2021. 6 DVDs and 2 BDs each. Really scraping the bottom of the barrel this time, with another two heavily 80ies-skewing selections, another hardcore porn "spin-off" collection, two flicks from the 1990s (!) and even one of director-collective Go Ijuin's execrable shot-on-video hardcore flicks making it onto DVD. Lots of money to safe here!

January:

Blu-ray:

Afternoon Affair: Kyoto Holy Tapestry / 昼下がりの情事 古都曼荼羅 (1973, dir. Masaru Konuma)

Image

Hoteru hime / 火照る姫 (1983, dir. Shogoro Nishimura)

Image

DVD:

Suite / スウィートルーム (1993, dir. Sadaaki Haginiwa)
Tsuma San-nin: Hada Kurabe / 妻三人 肌くらべ (1973, dir. Isao Hayashi)
Kaoru Kiri: The Best Lesbian in Japan, a Docu-Drama / 実録 桐かおる にっぽん一のレスビアン (1974, dir. Katsuhiko Fujii)
Soap Kôshinkyoku Yume no Shiro / ソープ行進曲 夢の城 (1984, dir. Masaharu Segawa)
Attacked Female Teacher / 襲われる女教師 (1983, dir. Nobuyuki Saito)
Sexual Abuse Compilation / ザ・折檻 番外篇 (1986, dir. Go Ijuin)

March:

Blu-ray:

Reijo niku-dorei / 令嬢肉奴隷 (1985, dir. Junichi Suzuki)

Image

Flower and Snake 4: White Uniform Rope Slave / 花と蛇 白衣縄奴隷 (1986, dir. Shogoro Nishimura)

Image

DVD:

Zoom Up: Seiko's Thigh / ズームアップ 聖子の太股 (1982, dir. Koyu Ohara)
Wakazuma ga nureru toki / 若妻が濡れるとき (1978, dir. Katsuhiko Fujii)
Boso Rhythm: Thank God for Women / 房総ぺこぺこ節 おんな万祝 (1974, dir. Nobuaki Shirai)
Roppongi Reijo: Fushidara / 六本木令嬢 ふ・し・だ・ら (1987, dir. Hiroshi Shinomiya)
Izumi Shima Swapping (Secret Report) Rape Lecture & Nami Matsukawa Bondage: Crazed Pistil「志麻いづみ スワッピング(秘)レイプ講座」&「松川ナミ 縛り 狂った花芯」(1982, dir. Katsuhiko Fujii & Fumihiko Kato) - These are hardcore porn (not that you'll be able to tell with all the pixels on screen) roman porno "spin-offs", basically made to compete with the AV market. They started releasing these earlier this year.
New Lily Lovers 2 / 新・百合族 2 (1994, dir. Osamu Murakami) - Another spin-off of sorts, and a sequel to one of the "films" released in the September batch. This one's supposedly "inspired" by Hiroyuki Nasu's two Sailor Suit Lily Lovers flicks. There's a third one as well and I'm sure we'll be blessed with its arrival on DVD soon enough.

Thank you! I was aware of the announcement, but I just couldn't find the motivation to compile the list. For obvious reasons...

I know I'm sounding like a broken record here, but what on earth are they thinking? Putting out those films when brilliant works by directors like Fujita and Negishi that remain unreleased. It's like releasing Lo Wei's entire Jackie Chan filmography on DVD and BD and deciding that there is no need to release Police Story, Drunken Master or Dragons Forever ever in any home video format.

Have you ever tried emailing them a list of titles you'd like to see? I only ask because in the announcement for the Go Ijuin atrocity they mention twize that they're releasing it because of fan demand:

来たるべきロマンポルノ50周年を目前に、ファンからのリクエストに応えて遂に初ディスク化! シリーズ中、特に人気の高い作品をセレクション。

And:

ファンの要望に応え、遂に禁断の初DVDリリース!

This really isn't a bad batch! The only reason I'm not excited about Star of David hitting BD in Japan is because it already came out on BD in Germany years ago and the forthcoming US BD from Synapse supposedly will carry over all the extras from the Discotek/Eastern Star DVD, Norifumi Suzuki audio commentary and all. Still, long overdue. I will probably check out the wrestling flick by Hiroyuki Nasu out of morbid curiosity. And there's at least 3 DVDs that I'm interested in as well. First, the Noboru Tanaka flick of course, because Tanaka can usually be relied on to produce something above average. Hasebe's Erotic Liaisons with Yuya Uchida is great and should have gotten a BD but I'll take a DVD as well. And finally, Killing Angel Muhan is a solid and nicely violent V-cinema action flick. I'm not happy that Happinet is now including 90ies flicks in their lineups since they're eating into the amount of actual roman porno that can be released, but this is a nice addition and I will gladly upgrade from my non-anamorphic DVD from 2002. In summary, a real shame that January and March's lineups are nowhere near as good as this one.

Oh yes, I'm curious about Love Me Strong... Love Me Hard, too. That's probably the only Tanaka RP that I haven't seen.

Beautiful Wrestlers: Down for the Count is like Lesbians in Uniforms, but without lesbians or uniforms. Too bad the only Nasu film I want - Virgin nanka kowakunai - remains unavailable aside a full screen VoD.

So there's guys jerking each other off "as a joke" in this one as well?

Probably not :lol: But it might have. My brain has deleted most of the film from my memory... needed space for more worthwhile things.

A pity. That's the only thing I remember from the two Lesbians in Uniform flicks. I'll still probably pick up the BD and continue my abusive relationship with Nasu (me being the victim, obviously!) because I don't think there are a lot of wrestling roman pornos and despite my rhetoric I like to throw money at Happinet's releases, seeing how they are the only company left releasing remastered catalogue titles of that sort.
