#Ero Week


 from  japanator

Thanks for a fantastic Ero Week, Japanator!

It's been one hell of a week, folks. We just spent the last seven days talking about all those things you don't want your parents to know about. We talked about yaoi manga and ero-ge, our own personal histories with series like Bondage Faer...


Japanator Doesn't Recommend: Soul Link

Soul Link is one of the worst visual novels I've had the misfortune to play. It exemplifies the worst attributes of the genre, and has few, if any traits of actual merit. It is a sad example of why so few gamers outside Japan even consider ...


You don't want to see this man's life-size Rei papercraft

Yes, it's made from paper, and it's life-size, but it's also anatomically correct. In an "Ero Week" kind of way.Yeah, so see the video below. It's safe for work, but you can see the less-safe videos over at his channel.I think it'...


Japanese Gaming's Top Ten Hottest Girls and Guys

As much as I love looking at hot girls, I surprisingly don't touch hentai or eroge all that much. But when Ero Week rolled around, I didn't want to be left out of the festivities, so I figured I could contribute something that everyone is s...


Ero Week: Romantic ero doujins

With the coming of Ero Week, I can hop on top of my internet roof in this virtual neighborhood and shout at the top of my lungs...I! HEART! PORN! Now I'm not talking about an unhealthy love or attraction to the adult industry. I'm just sayi...


Ero Week: The deal-breaker

The other day, I read Brad's harrowing tale of how he lent his girlfriend a copy of Sundome, fully expecting to be dumped within days of having done so. It gave me a good laugh, but reminded me of how hentai can be a per...


Ero Week: Why hentai just doesn't do it for me

It's no secret here at Japanator that many of us enjoy hentai. As a subset of the anime genre, some may even consider it essential viewing depending on how good the story is (if any). Over the years, I've known plenty of people who have wat...


Oh wow, Tenga sex aids getting their own manga

Well, if there was ever a bit of news that would be perfect for Ero Week, it would be this one. It seems that someone, somewhere, decided that it would be a good idea to create a manga based on Tenga, popular line of er...adult self-service...


The Bible Black story or: How I learned to love hentai

[I almost never have any stories to tell, really. I mean, I hardly ever do anything crazy each day, and even when me and other friends decide to roam about town, nothing too extreme comes out of it...just a funny experience and a good ti...


Interview: JAST USA manages a profit on every ero-ge

As a follow-up to our MangaGamer interview, we took some time to sit down with JAST USA, the company behind a huge number of titles such as My Girlfriend is the President, May Club and Three Sisters' Story. Oh, and they're J-List. You know,...


Ero Week: Sundome cemented my new relationship

For several months, I've been in a relationship that I couldn't be happier about. The girl I'm with, Sam, is beautiful, smart and doesn't take any sh*t from me. I'm utterly smitten by her, and with good reason.One thing about her, though: s...


Katawa Shoujo: How an eroge changed my mind

Would anyone believe me if I said I was playing an eroge for research?I found out about Katawa Shoujo, aka Disability Girls, last spring. This coincided with a reporting project I was working on in graduate school about disability rights. I...


Interview: MangaGamer says adult content is just a bonus

Visual novels have a long and storied history with anime. The wide breadth of characters combined with their deep stories often produced some fantastic anime. But the world of visual novels has, by and large, been closed to Western audience...


Midweek MADness: Code Ecchi

[Here's a special edition of Monday MADness for your loli-loving pleasure. --Brad]It seems someone forgot to let me know Japanator is having a themed week this week as I would have been all over this shit on Monday. My miscommunication is...


Ero Week: How I Met the Bondage Fairies

Growing up in a small town has it's advantages. For instance, in mine there was only one comic shop, but even so, being the only game in town meant that the owner had free reign over what he stocked his shelves with. As a fifteen year old, ...


The boy addiction: A Yaoi Experience

So, I've noticed that yaoi (yOW-ee) is pretty under-represented on Japanator, and it's also the subject of much fuss and disdain considering our general reader demographic. For the girls, though. For those closet-freaks that hang out in the...

Interview: Yen Press isn't apprehensive on mature manga

One of my biggest obsessions in recent years has been Yen Press' Sundome. It's a fantastic title that's well worth your read, but the big thing about it is the title walks the borderline between story and porn. As a result, the title lands ...


This toilet paper is strangely arousing

Those looking for a sexy way to go to the bathroom - wait, let me start over. Those looking for a premium erotic experience on the toilet - hm, that sounds iffy too. There's no good way to lead into this news, so I'll just say it. Toranonan...


Interview: Tokyopop wants more sophisticated yaoi readers

As part of our Ero Week, one of the things I wanted to understand was yaoi. I understand the principles of its attractiveness to female readers and all that, but just how it sells, and how it finds its space in store shelves. So, I turned t...
