THE SHAPE OF WATER
Ahoy there, miss! Do you mind if we pull abreast?


At top, a poster for the Hitomi Kozue roman porno flick Nikutai hanzai kaigan: Piranha no mure, aka Sex-Crime Coast: School of Piranha. In this one Kozue rises out of the sea like Aphrodite, which is how we always suspected she came to be. Well, okay, she isn't actually a deity. Instead she plays an all-too-mortal gangster girl who falls for a gangster boy in the seaside region of Shōnan, along Sagami Bay. But romance is never easy in these films, and a love triangle soon brings jealousy and violence to the idyllic sands of central Japan. It's Nikkatsu Studios, and it's roman porno, so you know exactly what you'll get here. It premiered in Japan today in 1973.

SHITA HAPPENS
Hold on a sec—wasn’t I wearing pants when I left the house?

This rare poster was made for the Nikkatsu roman porno flick Gendai shöfu-kö: no shita no uzuki, aka Modern Prostitution: Lust Under a Uniform (in case you’re curious, in phonetic Japanese “shita” means “under,” which means our header makes no real sense, but hey, after five years of puns you sometimes grasp at straws). Anyway, the movie was directed by Chüsei Sone from an Araki Ichiro comic book, and starred Masumi Jun, who you last saw being fondled here. Other versions of this poster we’ve seen are riddled with pinholes or badly creased, so this is a real upgrade (which will now appear on multiple other sites with no thanks given to Pulp Intl., but oh well). We don’t have any more info on this movie because it proved impossible to track down, but we do know it premiered in Japan today in 1974.

SEXTRA CREDIT
Her academics aren’t great, but her class participation is absolutely tops.

We’re back to Nikkatsu’s 70s softcore today with a poster for Joshi daisei: Sex kaki seminar, or Joshidaisei: Sex kaki zeminaaru, depending on your preferences in transliteration. Directed by Isao Hayashi, and starring Masumi Jun, the movie basically tells the story of three co-eds who sign up for a nerdy college professor’s sex seminar. They’re interested in seducing the professor, but he’s more intent on his research. When another student finds out about the class, he secretly records the sessions with blackmail in mind, eventually offering to trade the evidence to the professor in exchange for a guarantee of graduation. Of course things go spectacularly wrong. Nikkatsu made probably a dozen Joshi daisei movies over the years, but Joshi daisei: Sex kaki seminar was the first. It premiered in Japan today in 1973.

JUN SOLSTICE
Japanese star brightens the longest day of the year.


It's summer solstice, and to commemorate this lovely day we've posted a photo of Masumi Jun, star of such films as Gendai shöfu-kö: no shita no uzuki, aka Modern Prostitution: Lust Under a Uniform and Maruhi joshidaisei: Sex arbeit, aka Sex Phobia. We haven't seen any of her films yet but we'll get around to them. We scanned this image from a 1974 issue of the Japanese pop culture magazine Heibon Punch.
