The photographer and stylists responsible for this picture of Shizuka Nakamura (中村静香) deserve as much recognition as the model, but unfortunately, I don’t know which shoot it comes from. The artistic and technical quality remind me of Playboy at its (long-vanished) best.
Not nude, but still under the fold, just in case there are workplaces where pretty girls in bikinis are a bad thing.(Continued on Page 4028)
This is aligned with my interests.
[Update 2015: Tumblr actually deleted a picture of a pretty girl. Fortunately, I was able to remember which picture it was, and found a fresh, slightly-smaller copy.]
Dear Hello!Project fans,
Apparently the folks who scanned Koharu Kusumi’s recent exposure in Cancam forgot to include the front and back pages of the insert. It’s obviously her, even before spotting the little beauty marks on her chin, so I wonder why they weren’t scanned. Then again, perhaps I don’t want to know…
I happened to be making a big order with Amazon Japan (~$500 in books and Bluray discs), so since that issue was still in stock, I threw it in. Lots of pretty girls pitching beauty products, as expected, so I’m not planning a subscription. By the way, the shipping for this order was a whole lot cheaper than expected, only $65; Amazon has apparently made some new international deals.(Continued on Page 4417)
Asuka Kishi is a very popular model in Japan, which means she spends a lot of time wearing swimsuits and lingerie in front of cameras. This is a good thing.
(NSFW below the fold; honestly, she’d be BSFW fully clothed)(Continued on Page 4518)
Pity it looks like they fed her Domino’s. At least Chiaki has homemade.(Continued on Page 4702)
Duck invasion? Have no fear, Mizuki Hoshina’s on the job.
(NSFW? With rubber ducks? Say it isn’t so.)(Continued on Page 4705)
Anri Sugihara in a bikini is never safe for work…(Continued on Page 4721)
I’ve seen this picture before, and now I know Anna Konno’s secret identity. See?
(NSFW after the jump)(Continued on Page 4744)
My first reaction to this picture of 19-year-old Seira Jōnishi (上西星来) was to search on Amazon Japan for photobooks and DVDs.
My second reaction was to Google for more pictures, because she doesn’t have any photobooks or DVDs yet, and her idol group Tokyo Performance Doll has blocked international viewing of their (forgettable-but-decorative) music videos. Her 20-year-old cousin Kei (上西恵) only has one photobook, despite being an NMB48 member for five years. Clearly there’s an opportunity for a double feature here.
I could watch this (NSFW) all day. Now if only I could figure out which of her DVDs it’s from (or better yet, a Bluray).
I’d like to believe that all women in the Hotta family live up to the promise as well as Yuika (now 35 and happily married; perhaps the next generation will be Mo’ Hotta).
According to her blog, she has a DVD and photobook out, but apparently only in the Chinese market. I don’t see any importers listing it.
Note that search engines are useless for finding anything that looks like two words, so unless you want results like “7 baby names that…”, use her name in Hanzi, 柳侑綺. That was useful for finding this photoshoot.

Catgirls after the jump.(Continued on Page 4981)
[Update: to make the game a little fairer, and to give appropriate credit, each picture is now a link back to Gelbooru; I hadn’t realized they let you link by the MD5 checksum, which I fortunately preserved as the filename. A quick bit of scripting, and I can also confirm that there’s only one tag (other than “1girl” and “solo”) that applies to all 22 images.]
In his cheesecake roundups from Gelbooru, Steven relied on an ever-expanding list of negative tags to exclude thing that definitely didn’t match his interests. The last version of the exclusion list was:
-1boy -multiple_boys -male_focus -penis -testicles -vore -rape -loli -fellatio -sex -bondage -furry -monochrome -amputee -anal -yaoi -abs -pregnant -shota -leash -tears -chained -noose -restrained -rope -asphyxiation -execution -hanging -corpse -blood -photo -peeing -gigantic_breasts -large_penis -huge_penis -futanari
I’d never really looked at the list before, and honestly, even after you exclude all of those, you still have to wade through a river of crap to find some decent pictures that match the positive tags you include.
See if you can guess what single positive tag I added to get the following pictures:(Continued on Page 4987)
When I went back and extracted the tags from my previous cheesecake post, I found a popular and baffling one: cowboy_shot. I was surprised to discover that it wasn’t a fetish, but a cinematographic term: getting everything from head to mid-thigh in the picture, from Westerns that needed to show the characters’ six-guns. Gelbooru taggers seem to be a bit unclear on the concept, since many of the matching pictures include the knees or even feet, but it narrowed things down a bit.
Since this is all scripted now, the mouseover comment includes the matching tags for each image.(Continued on Page 4991)
The ‘original’ tag at Gelbooru is often, but not exclusively, used for “original character”. Then again, the second picture, a fully-dressed girl surrounded by autumn leaves, is tagged “hentai”, “porn”, and “sex” for no reason. At least the “rubber_duck” tag is being used correctly…(Continued on Page 4993)
Another cinematographic term that sounds like it ought to be a fetish. Then again, if your blow-up doll is askew, that would be a dutch-wife angle…
This turned out to be a surprisingly porn-y search tag. I had to skim through several thousand thumbnails to come up with pictures that didn’t include bare tits, bare asses, fuck-me poses, girl-girl, horribly-broken spines, untagged lolis, etc. Not that those are all bad things. Indeed, many of them were quite nice; they’re just not what I’m going for here.
If I were tagging pictures on Gelbooru, I’d have to add a whole bunch of new ones (to avoid…): absurd_breasts, invisible_corset, magic_spine, inflatable_ass, helium_implants, bodily_functions, traced_from_porn, artist_hand_in_pants, oh_that_poor_girl, etc. Fortunately it’s too much work just to browse them.(Continued on Page 4999)
It will come as no surprise to You Know Who that the rubber_duck tag is a target-rich environment for cheesecake. Or that something legendary for making bath-time lots of fun would lead to water, soap suds, and lots of bare skin. And, because Japan, lots of lolis, tagged and untagged, sigh.
I rejected many quite pleasant pictures for being horizontal, so I may do a roundup at some point with the images sized differently. I also rejected censorducks and strategically-placed steam, so maybe that one will also be more NSFW.(Continued on Page 5004)
Not to be confused with American Flagg!, drawn by “Wholesome” Howie Chaykin (as Stan Lee used to call him…), American flags are quite popular in anime and Japanese cheesecake photography. Given the history between the two countries, this can seem a bit odd, but for 16-year-old anime fans and 18-year-old bikini models, that was generations ago.
The category is currently dominated by Kantai Collection and Touhou, but if you page back a bit, there are other options. Red half-rims below the fold, and one loli crept in because she was paired with Kurumu-chan.(Continued on Page 5007)
It’s clear that Gelbooru users currently have Rem ranked Number One Waifu, but I had to lead off with some classics. A lot of the pictures in this category should really be tagged wedding_night, but we’ll save those for later…(Continued on Page 5009)
Or, more precisely, Chii’s-cake. Rather large image after the jump, worth clicking through to the much-larger original if you like the character.(Continued on Page 5010)
There are two basic problems with the monster_girl category at Gelbooru: lolis and Everyday Life With Monster Girls. Both are a bit overexposed. Lots of mermaids, too, of course, but as long as it’s not the same one every time, that’s fine.(Continued on Page 5013)
The number one lesson I learned from browsing the oldschool tag was that, even with an exclusion list that weeded out the really raw stuff, most fan artists have very intimate memories of their childhood favorites. Especially Nausicaa.
No red half-rims here, because apparently they hadn’t been invented yet!(Continued on Page 5017)
Yes, it’s true: the most common adjective associated with nurses is ‘naughty’, and Gelbooru contributors firmly embrace this. So much so that I had to pass over quite a few, especially the ones that involved equipment less wholesome than stethoscopes and syringes…(Continued on Page 5020)
7 days ago was my birthday (50th, as it happens) and 7 days from now is Christmas, so it’s time for a special triple-length cheesecake post, and the theme is naughty and nice anime girls riding the sleigh, hurrying down the chimney, jingling bells, making merry, raising spirits, putting lumps in stockings, visiting the north pole, unwrapping their presents, and giving joy to the world. Some of those are euphemisms, but as usual, you’ll have to do your own Gelbooru searches to find the more intimate images.
While searching, I came across the following wonderfully clueless comment on this image:
“removing zettai_ryouiki, she is nowhere to be found in this picture, please don’t mistag”
Apparently he didn’t realize he was soaking in it.(Continued on Page 5024)
For these posts, I’m typically scanning about 5-10 times as many thumbnails as I view at full size, then only downloading maybe 3/4 of those. I keep doing that until I have around 40-50 images, which I edit down to 20-25. Which means my leftovers folder has at least 15 images from each set, plus some from keywords that didn’t work out. In other words, ~250 pictures that are good enough to post but lacking a coherent theme. A chanpurū, if you will.(Continued on Page 5028)
Can you imagine what the world would be like today if Hef had gone with his original “stag” logo and theme? Antlers just don’t have the same impact. Then again, as our lead bunny-girl’s companion illustrates, what if he’d gone with a kitten theme and started the catgirl revolution decades early?(Continued on Page 5036)
Even after an extensive exclusion list, the majority of pictures in the dog_days category on Gelbooru featured heavy petting, so some popular characters are sadly underrepresented.
Red half-rims below the fold, because boobs.
Update: I never knew there was a bonus onsen episode from the third season:
“Ninja” was obviously too broad a category, but “ninja cat_ears” wasn’t quite enough. Besides, you can’t have too much Yuki, so I expanded the search to include all animal ears, real and fake.
No red half-rims, so let’s start off with a little Nonsense:(Continued on Page 5063)
After last night’s Cheesecake Factory bombing in Pasadena, it seems necessary to fight back with factory cheesecake, or as close as I could get at Gelbooru, wrench wenches!
(and it looks like the as-yet-uncaught perpetrator was either the most inept terrorist of the year or a typical hipster)(Continued on Page 5069)
Nothing says Valentine like red hair. A fair number with glasses, too, and in the immortal words of Gracie Law, “Oh, that’s an extra to these people. It’s like leather bucket seats, it’s double the price.”
According to a scientific survey of Gelbooru, anime redheads have trouble keeping their clothes on and their orifices unexplored, which may explain some of their personality quirks. I added a few new negative keywords to cut down on the amount of this stuff I had to skip over. Also, fandoms may come and go, but apparently Ranma is eternal.
[Takanashi sisters come first, because Interviews with Monster Girls is awesome](Continued on Page 5084)
In honor of my storm-destroyed patio umbrella…(Continued on Page 5088)
I thought “amazon” would be a good keyword to try, but it’s 70% Wonder Woman, 20% One Piece, 4% Dragon’s Crown, and 80% porn. So it’s time for another trip through the leftovers folder.(Continued on Page 5096)
To celebrate the arrival of a complete archive of Steven’s self-hosted Chizumatic web site, courtesy of his brother, I’m loosening the rules a bit and posting some images that were a bit over the top for my usual “mostly-cheerful cheesecake” posts. NSFW after the jump. [he forgot to include the top-level USS Clueless site directories, but he just went on what sounds like a badly-needed vacation, so I’ll wait a week or two before pursuing that]
[Update: I’ve got a test copy of the Chizumatic site running under Nginx, and it looks fully functional, with none of the dead links the archive.org version has; the top rotation doesn’t rotate, of course, but that was a cron job before he came up with his Flash app. I think all we need to do is merge the USS Clueless copy from archive.org with this and get some embedded links cleaned up, and it can be fully restored and hosted somewhere.]
[Update: I think I’ve successfully merged the two together with everything intact except links to the Ultimate Bulletin Board install he stopped using in 7/2002. archive.org managed to save static copies of some discussion threads that Steven linked directly from the blog, but not the bulk of it. UBB apparently didn’t have a backing database, so if Steven’s brother finds it and sends another care package, it should be fairly easy to recreate. That might take a while, because he wants to be sure that nothing personal or private is released.
When will it be public? Above my pay grade. I think Pixy will give it a permanent home in The Munuvian Empire when he gets a chance. He has access to the data I’ve been using, and I just uploaded a compressed tarball of the merged sites.]
[Monday morning update: why, yes, I am a bit OCD. With a little bit of Perl regexp abuse, I got the existing UBB links to display correctly.](Continued on Page 5102)
You know what goes well with books? Damn near anything! I could have narrowed down this category with any of a dozen tags, and still had plenty of images to choose from. Instead, I started hitting every Nth page and used the extras to restock my leftover folder for future chanpurū.
Of course, no book collection would be complete without Yomiko Readman:(Continued on Page 5104)
I thought that focusing on sailor hats might produce a fairly diverse collection, with relatively few schoolgirls in sailor suits. Well, the second part mostly worked, but as far as diversity goes, 90% of the pictures were of one chick with an anchor, and most of the rest were loli ship-girls. Fortunately, not all ships lack buoyancy, and there were some other franchises represented.
