Conveniently labeled

I presume the back of her skirt has a giant “A” on it…

Yuzu Matsumoto

This photo shoot of 20-year-old Yuzu Matsumoto stands out because it doesn’t rely on any of the common glamour-photography tropes, or any of the common fetishes. She’s just a fully-dressed, extremely pretty young woman, in a little “daily life” sketch.

(most of the other shoots in this series from Weekly Georgia fall into the “ideal girlfriend” category, of course)

For the 70th Anniversary, Bluray

It only took six years or so, but there’s now a Bluray release of the Otoko-tachi no Yamato movie; I rather liked it, so it’ll be in my next order from Amazon Japan.

Hopefully the soft-subs I found for the DVD still line up with the new release. I don’t see anything about changes to the film.

Coordinated Lime Cosplay



[Update: the Amazon Japan Bakuon!! Store, which not only includes anime/manga merchandise, but also the actual helmets the girls wear, parts for their bikes, toolkits, etc.]

Bakuon OP, 3D version

I generally don’t like the bleached-blonde look on Asian women, but it works for Sayaka Sasaki.

…and since she’s turning 34 soon, I don’t even have to feel guilty about ogling!

Sexual Healing meme

I’ve been seeing a lot of captioned anime pictures recently with two speech bubbles added, reading 大丈夫? おっぱい揉む? (“Are you okay? Wanna squeeze my titties?”). The templates (NSFW) work surprisingly well on a wide variety of cheesecake images, 2D and 3D, and then of course it had to get weird…

Dear boingboing,

Every time I think the tools who write for the site have bottomed out, they dig deeper. Emphasis added:

Dolores Park is a symbol of the clash between of the Mission District’s low-income, non-white traditional residents and the flood of gentrifying tech world.

As rents in the neighborhood have climbed to unthinkable heights and landlords have engaged in sleazy mass-eviction/ethnic cleansing programs, Dolores Park has been a site for an ongoing culture war.

In other words, people like boingboing writers want to live in San Francisco, and can afford to pay higher rent than the current occupants in certain neighborhoods. I’m willing to wager that the writer wouldn’t use those particularly loaded phrases to describe a middle-class neighborhood being overrun by a “different-looking” population…

[Update: the comments on this one are surprisingly refreshing, with plenty of people calling out factual errors and bullshit in the article.]

I wonder what they sell here…

Shoes? Auto parts? Knitting supplies? I can’t figure out what sort of product this shop might be selling…

Lime-senpai sings!

The CD single of the Bakuon end-credits song includes several extras, including the “Lime-senpai” version.

They just layered riding noises over the instrumental version.
