Pros: + Truly beautiful models. They claim over 300
+ Site is very much weighted to photosets.
+ Generally good photography over 30000 images
+ Very 'Japanese' : On the positive side it has a novel approach for westeners and in some respects it is quite appealing.
The translations can be quaint.
The models are treated with respect
and seem to be enjoying the experience.
+ Videos - Over 100 of them.
Short, very softcore & I actually quite liked them.
Not so much that I would bother to download any though.
Cons: - Galleries are updated daily, I think, but a gallery is only 15 photos & is not offered in a choice of resolutions. ( Typically 1300 x 900 )
- Confusing navigation, not helped by...

- Very 'Japanese': Layout is not intuitive and with the restrictive....

- Points system controls which models, photos & zips you are allowed access to
and possibly even the size of image you are allowed to access.
Although how the system works is very Japanese & quite inscrutable! :0/
Basically what it comes down to is that it will take a year continuous subscription to get access to all the site content!
Seeing greyed out stills & small thumbnails shows that whilst this is more of the same good quality, it is nowhere near enough to make me want to invest a years worth of subscription for it.
- Videos - Short & very softcore : Some may see this as a minus.


** Failed to respond to cancellation request in 2 working days. Lowered score to a 'not recommended status'
Bottom Line: Right, let me say at the outset, I really did want to like this site.
On balance I do but there are some heavy caveats.
I have listed some points above as both positive and negative.

The 'Japanese'ness of the site is quirky, but will soon become a terminal irritation. Photosets are random pictures rather than a cohesive photoset with any progression and are very short on quantity, although the quality is good.
A lot of the clothing used is western, which I found a little disappointing.
I was expecting to see at least some more traditional Japanese attire. I would have hoped it would have been 1 trad set per model. The kimono does appear but very infrequently.

I would have thought a lot higher of this site if it had been all available upon subscription. As it stands, 'cheated' is too strong a word, 'deprived' suits as a better word for my feelings on this.

It is understandable that they wish to encourage long term membership.
The way they have weighted the points though, it isn't really worthwhile.

lk2fireone (194) Solid review of a disappointing site. I doubt many PU members are willing to pay for a year's membership before they can access the entire site.

Thanks for the feedback.

I tried to make it even handed, but at the moment the cons certainly outweigh the pros.

dracken (246) Yeah, some sites make it really hard to be liked. I really enjoy several networks out there, but the constant issues they've had for years now simply don't allow me to give them a higher score.

However, this review was excellent, thanks for keeping an even head about the whole "issue."

otoh (54) Cap'n, sorry for asking you to cast your mind back... while you were enrolled here, did you ever figure out the points system?

I'm generally not into gravure - the girls are lovely, but I find it all a bit wholesome for my liking - smiling girls in flowery bikinis and the like ;)

But I found one section of this site - 'feti style' - that really appeals to me. But since it's the main area of interest, I'm not sure if I'd subscribe if a large chunk of it isn't available on an initial subscription. Is the point-blocking across all sets?

Anyway don't worry if it escapes you, it all seems a bit bizarre...

Capn (28) REPLY TO #7 - otoh :

Bizarre is the right word.
It is all very inscrutable & oriental.

IIRC the way it works is you can see the whole of the site content in thumbnail form, but areas where you haven't got access clicking on the thumbnail will not give you the original photo & the zips will not be downloadable for you.

For the amount of content concerned, it really isn't worthwhile maintaining a longer term membership.

If it appeals look at it as a single hit.
You get the basic access & hope there is enough material there to float your boat.

It tends to be a bit artsy, but there are some truly stunningly beautiful models there.
I just wish the material was more western in approach.
That brings me to another point.
The outfits are almost exclusivelty western, which I thought was a shame.
Some more authentic Kimonos would have been nice.

For me it was another 'nearly but not quite' site.

HTH

Best regards,

Cap'n. :0)

Many thanks Capn... as you say, it's very Japanese - I've visited there a couple of times and they do like their loyalty schemes, systems etc.

Anyway, will add it to the list and take my chances sometime, hopefully not too much of what I'm after will need points!
