MIMI-OGRAPHY
The team wouldn't be nearly as nice without her.

This 1974 shot of the Japanese AV model Mimi came from an issue of Heibon Punch we bought a while back. It's pretty much impossible to isolate any information on her, because Mimi is actually a very popular name in Japan, as well as the name of a clothing line, a porn star, a movie, and some other things, but we thought we'd share the photo anyway. Apparently Mimi plays basketball, since her shirt says “Nice Sports Basketball.” Shirts against skins, anyone?

HARUMI SERVICE
Tajima joins the white panty club.

This is the last of our Heibon Punch calendar pages. Sad, we know—these things have provided a lot of visual pleasure, but we'll acquire more at some point. The above foldout features actress Harumi Tajima, who appeared in Kyôfu joshi kôkô: Animal dôkyôsei, aka Terrifying Girls' High School: Animal Courage, and in Seijû gakuen, aka School of the Holy Beast, which we talked about here. This shot, as you can see from the date at bottom left, is from 1974, and she sports the same garb worn last month by Yumiko Tatsuno. While the look is similar, the photographer is different. This shot was made by Keinosuke Hashimoto. Wanna see the other Heibon Punch calendar pages? Just click here and scroll down.

HER BODYGUARD
It's hard to get past my defenses—but I'm worth it.

This person standing with a suit of armor—possibly occupied by her protector—sure looks familiar. She's Yumiko Tatsuno and you may remember we just mentioned her two days ago because she was in the 1975 roman porno flick A Bakeneko Toruko furo, aka A Haunted Turkish Bathhouse. Well, what a coincidence. This shot of her on a February calendar page was shot by celeb photographer Takeo Sano and is from a 1974 issue of Heibon Punch. We have more from this calendar upcoming.

MARI NEW YEAR
Oh, my mistake. I thought you said out with the old in with the nude.

We thought we'd start your 2017 off right with this January calendar page from a 1974 issue of the Japanese magazine Heibon Punch featuring the always wonderful Mari Tanaka. She's chameleonic and can look very different from shot to shot. For a glimpse of her at her best, we suggest peeking here.

TOP TENRO
She's a Ray of hope.

Above, a nice image of a Japanese model with the amazing name Tenro Ray, from an issue of Heibon Punch. Ray appeared in numerous magazines during the 1970s but never starred in any movies, as far as we know. We wish she had. 1974 on this shot.

SCENIC IKEJIMA
A natural wonder of the Far East.


Above, a nice promo shot of Japanese actress Ruriko Ikejima, who appeared in 1973's Bôhachi bushidô: Poruno jidaigeki, and who here adopts a thoughtful pose for famed photographer Shotaro Akiyama. The image comes from an issue of the Japanese magazine Heibon Punch published in 1974.

CARNAL ASADA
During the 1970s Nami Asada was the apple of Japan’s eye.


Japanese model Nami Asada gained wide recognition for posing naked with an apple for a Yoichi Aoyagi photograph, an unusual way to become a celebrity for sure, but certainly worthwhile, at least in our opinion. The photo, which appeared in the magazine Heibon Punch, preceded a best-selling book of images called Apple 1972-1977. You see the cover for that at right. That release turned into a follow-up called Apple 2, a third book called Another Apple, and so forth. The photo above comes from the Apple sessions and was featured in the same 1973 Heibon Punch as the Ryôko Ema image we shared last week. We have dozens of Apple shots, but so do other people. If you’re interested you can see some at the website Bulles de Japon, here.

BODY AND SOLES
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.


This image made by Susumu Murakami comes from an issue of the magazine Heibon Punch and is a large foldout we scanned in three pieces and put together in Photoshop. You're welcome. It shows Japanese actress Ryôko Ema, who appeared in such pinku epics as Onsen suppon geisha, Sukeban gerira, and 1973's all-time classic Furyô anego den: Inoshika Ochô, aka Sex and Fury. We've discussed all those movies, but Ema was a supporting character, which is why we never mentioned her before. Omission remedied.

MARI GO ROUND
Every angle produces the same great result.

Above are two rare shots of an actress long overdue for some exposure here—Mari Tanaka, who appeared in numerous Nikkatsu movies, including Kanno kyoshitsu: ai no technique, aka Excitement Class: Love Techniques, and the wonderfully titled Joshidaisei: Sexy Dynamite. The photos come from a coffee table book celebrating Heibon Punch magazine circa 1970. We have more images of her and we also have a rare movie poster, which means we’ll be coming back to her soon.

LOW RIDER
I was afraid I'd have visibility problems on this little thing, but everyone seems able to see me just fine.

We couldn’t resist posting this. It’s part of a calendar originally published by the Japanese men’s magazine Heibon Punch. We’ve seen the image in several places, but we suspect it originated at the website bullesdejapon. Riding without any protective gear whatsoever is Me-ju Ayako, who appeared in the Nikkatsu flicks Red Assault and Tokyo Eros: Thousand and One Nights. This shot is from 1980.

History Rewind
The headlines that mattered yesteryear.
May 27
1930—Chrysler Building Opens
In New York City, after a mere eighteen months of construction, the Chrysler Building opens to the public. At 1,046 feet, 319 meters, it is the tallest building in the world at the time, but more significantly, William Van Alen's design is a landmark in art deco that is celebrated to this day as an example of skyscraper architecture at its most elegant.
1969—Jeffrey Hunter Dies
American actor Jeffrey Hunter dies of a cerebral hemorrhage after falling down a flight of stairs and sustaining a skull fracture, a mishap precipitated by his suffering a stroke seconds earlier. Hunter played many roles, including Jesus in the 1961 film King of Kings, but is perhaps best known for portraying Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot episode "The Cage".
May 25
1938—Alicante Is Bombed
During the Spanish Civil War, a squadron of Italian bombers sent by fascist dictator Benito Mussolini to support the insurgent Spanish Nationalists, bombs the town of Alicante, killing more than three-hundred people. Although less remembered internationally than the infamous Nazi bombing of Guernica the previous year, the death toll in Alicante is similar, if not higher.
1977—Star Wars Opens
George Lucas's sci-fi epic Star Wars premiers in the Unites States to rave reviews and packed movie houses. Produced on a budget of $11 million, the film goes on to earn $460 million in the U.S. and $337 million overseas, while spawning a franchise that would eventually earn billions and make Lucas a Hollywood icon.
