||- Beautiful Japanese women. They don't wear too much make-up.
- Good detail in the images, and uncensored (whereas many Japanese sites are censored). Photoshop retouching is barely noticeable.
- Easy to download galleries, and no download limits.
- User can rate each model and photo set, though it's not easy to view the scores.
||- Photo resolution needs to be bigger: their maximum is only 1267 x 1900 pixels.
- Lighting on set is often not bright enough. Too much is in shadow.
- Most of the videos are dull. They were usually around 5 minutes long. Sometimes 10 to 20 minutes long.
- Update frequency is slow.
||If you don't know the Japanese language and you're looking for uncensored photo sets of Japanese women, it's not easy to find good websites in this niche. Gravure.com is a pretty decent site for soft-core J-porn. The website design is simple and easy to navigate, with no advertising or links to any outside sites. What you see in the preview tour is very much like what a subscriber gets. It appears they started in September of 2012. They claim to publish updates once per week, but I've found they're a bit slower than that: it's more like once every 8 days.
I subscribed to the site until October 1st, 2013. I paid for the non-recurring 90-day pass for $78 Canadian-- it seems other countries get it a few dollars cheaper. In all, I downloaded 11928 photos (6.7 GB), and 22 videos (4.2 GB). It's a small site, but I found what's there to be pretty enjoyable. There were 38 different women on the site and 87 photo sets. Most of the models only had 3 or fewer photo sets. Just 4 of the models got 5 or more photo sets each. I noticed only 3 of the women had any tattoos and only 8 had completely shaved their pubes. The rest were all natural, with few noticeable piercings and no breast-implants. There was a bit of variation in body types, from very skinny with small breasts to somewhat chubby with big breasts.
While it is uncensored, the photos don't get very explicit. It's a lot like the Met-Art style of porn applied to Japanese women. Each photo set features just one model at a time-- there's no girl-on-girl posing, and absolutely no men. Only 2 scenes were outdoors; the rest were in a wide variety of indoor sets. There were some almost full-screen closeups of pussy, but not as much as I'd like. Often when you got a peek at the girl's pussy it was at a bit of a distance and the dim lighting made it hard to see details. Only 4 of the photo sets had any vaginal penetration (usually with a dildo), and there were no anal insertions.
The videos were usually just showing the girl moving slowly, doing a few poses, and sometimes masturbating a bit. Mostly forgettable, though the more recent videos have improved a bit in terms of arousal factor.
There was an unusual problem in July with one of their new models. They published a photo set but a couple weeks later they said they got complaints from some of the girl's fans and had to replace it with a censored version (her pussy was blurred out because these "fans" said non-Japanese should not be allowed to see her bits). By the end of August they removed her entirely from the website.
All in all, I liked this site's photos enough that I plan to subscribe again after waiting 6 months. By then there should be enough new stuff to make it worth another payment, though it's a bit on the expensive side.
