My 2 cents (4) 03-20-12  04:50pm
Male Profile TRUST USER?   YES (12), NO (0)
Status: Current Member for over 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: -The models are for the most part, stunning.
A few of the models, like Rio Fujisaki, and Kasumi Risa can also be found on various hardcore sites, but most of the models, I haven't seen elsewhere.
-Picture and video quality is very good. Not super high resolution, but clear and crisp. (video 1280x720 and pictures 1280x852)
-Photo sets can be downloaded as a zip file, although they tend to be small sets, with only 15-25 photos in each.
-updates come regularly, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, usually with 2 photo sets and 1 video.
-Price is OK. Not a bargain, at ¥1,980 (about US$24), but not over the top either.
-Cancelling membership was no problem, just took a couple of mouse clicks. I see a couple of previous comments here about having problems with cancelling, so I assume that the website has since changed things to make it easier on that front.
Cons: Unfortunately there is quite a substantial list.
-Navigation is shocking, with no search feature. You basically have to go methodically through each section to find what you like.
-No model index. Models will have content scattered about the site in little groups, with nothing linking them.
-There is a points system where a certain amount of content is available straight away, then more if you stay 6 months, and more again,(but only photos, from what I can make out), after 1 year.
-When you cancel, you are cut off immediately, so you will need to remember exactly when to cancel.
-No streaming videos, and can only be downloaded in one size and format. (WMV's of about 150mb, for a 5 minutes long video)
Bottom Line: Personally, I would love to be able to give this website a much higher score. It was like a breath of fresh air after too many sites that all start to look the same. I love the high quality softcore, (and it is definitely no more than softcore)videos. I don't really do photos myself, but the ones I looked at looked like similar quality.
It's not a huge site, but I'd take quality over quantity any day. New content trickles in at a steady pace.
I hate the idea of a points system, but having said that, I have done something that I usually never do. After my initial one month, I actually have joined up again with the intention of staying 6 months so I can get the next lot of content. There is no way I will be sticking it out for 1 year though, that would require far too much dedication, as there only seems to be photos at the end of that.
Being a Japanese site, there is of course the issue of their censorship laws, although this site, being very softcore, doesn't focus a lot on the genitals anyway, and it is quite subtly blurred , as opposed to the big square mosaic blocks you get sometimes. Plus, they will show a lot of pubes before the blurring kicks in.
Losing access to the site the instant you cancel your membership, is in my view, a very poor practice, if you pay for a certain amount of time, you should get access for that full time, regardless of whether you have cancelled it's re-billing or not. The only reason I can see for them to do that is they must expect some people to forget to cancel on time, and the automatic re-billing kicks in. Then if you cancelled the next day, you instantly lose access to the site!
The tour page show a fair representation of what is on the inside, so if you like what you see there, the site might be worth a shot. One thing I can guarantee though: you will get frustrated by the layout of the site, with it's poor navigation, and content that you can't access.

So, finally to sum it all up in a few words:
Content, superb.
Website, crap.

tangub (151) An excellent and informative first review. I once had this site bookmarked as a possible join but got put off by some of the negative feedback from other users here so crossed it off my list. I'm still on the lookout for a softcore photo based Japanese site though but there doesn't seem to be much choice in that niche. Welcome to pornusers and hope you stick around.

tboy (7) Agreed nice review, I can see more sites opting for a points-style system and moving away from all-you-can-eat in one shot and yes the instant cancel thing seems very aggressive to me.

Thanks for the review.

BadMrFrosty (56) Good review. Your your final summation I see too often. Why do these people invest so much making great content but present it on their website so badly. Its like serving gourmet caviar inside a Big Mac.

otoh (54) As others have said, welcome thanks for a good review!

A shame too about the site - it was also one I was tempted by. I like Japanese girls but not so much the nature of their hardcore porn, or the censorship in the hard and the soft. I'd prefer that the naughty bits be implied rather than blurred, and they seem to do that well at Graphis - but the negatives are too strong to warrant a join. The search continues, I guess!

Capn (28) Welcome to PU.

You have indeed made a very good start, with an informative & incisive opening review.
I am looking forward to more input from you.

I share your frustration with this site.

The models for the most part are achingly beautiful & most know how to tease, probably a cultural thing there ;0)

It is a shame that the site presentation isn't more western though, with chronological progression through the photoset.

Also they have to get their loyalty system up to a wortwhile standard.

Cap'n. :0)

Ergo Proxy (21) Yeah, thanks for this nice, detailed review. I was excited to see that a japanese site lets "gaijin" become members. That's really cool. I am still depressed that Fetibox.com doesn't accept foreigners.

My 2 cents (4) REPLY TO #4 - otoh :

Greetings otoh,
If you are tempted by their preview pages, then you may well find that the quality of the content is worth the hassles, I doubt you will find anything of it's type elsewhere which is better quality, at least I haven't been able to as yet.
If only they would make the website user-friendly, Graphis would be up at the top of my list!

My 2 cents (4) REPLY TO #5 - Capn :

Ahoy Cap'n,
'Tis true, their loyalty scheme sure requires a lot of dedication to be getting all the content. Even if they added the content at the 2nd and 3rd months instead of 6 and 12 months, I'm sure they would get a lot more takers. It would be interesting to know what percentage of customers stick it out for a full year, I would guess very few in this age of instant internet gratification, but then again, it must be working for them, or else they would be changing it.

Capn (28) REPLY TO #8 - My 2 cents :

I think as I suspect the bulk of their customers are likely to be Japanese, it probably works for them as is.

I see little evidence of them actively trying to attract wetern world subscribers.
