The wait is finally over! Synapse Films’ next roman porno release has been put up at their site. Their DVD release of the movie will be called Nurse Diary: Beast Afternoon and unless I am mistaken, the original title is 看護婦日記 獣じみた午後 (also known as Nurses’ Journal: Animal In the Afternoon).
The film was directed by Naosuke Kurosawa (Zoom In: Rape Apartments ズームイン 暴行団地) and released in Japan in 5th of February 1982. Like a lot of previous Synapse Films releases of Nikkatsu’s roman pornos, this movie was also previously released on DVD by Geneon Entertainment in Japan (but without English subs).
Release date November 8, 2016.

The next roman porno from Synapse Films/Impulse Pictures in their Nikkatsu Erotic Films Collection will be Momoe’s Lips AKA Momoe’s Lips: Rape Shot (レイプショット 百恵の唇). As usual DVD only. The film was directed by Katsuhiko Fujii and released in Japan in 23rd June 1979.
Amazon apparently has something against titles containing the word rape which is the reason for the shorter title on the cover below.
Release date for the Synapse Films disc is February 10, 2015.
Copy paste from Synapse’s site:
THE PERVERSE WORLD OF THE PAPARAZZI CAN BE ADDICTING AND DEADLY! WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR THE ULTIMATE STORY?
Toru, a down and out tabloid reporter is looking for his next “big” story. In order to get paid decent money in the supermarket rag business, you need to find controversy! The elusive “Momoe” is forbidden fruit, so he sets his sights on Miki Yoko, an up and coming young singing sensation. She’s young and beautiful and Toru thinks her record company is pumping her full of drugs. He will do anything to get a story, even assaulting her and tailing her everywhere she goes. One night, she is kidnapped right in front of him and, with his reporter instincts at work, Toru’s life spirals into a torrid world of sex, drugs, and corruption in the entertainment business. In his quest for a huge story, will he come out unscathed?
MOMOE’S LIPS is a violent, perverse film that is just as relevant today as it was 35 years ago upon release. In our 21st century world of paparazzi tailing entertainers for pictures and stories for the nightly news, this film tackled similar themes many decades ago… with much more skin, sex and violence on display for the audience!

Liner Notes from Japanese Film Scholar Jasper Sharp
In a surprise move (well it surprised me based on what I had read earlier) Arrow Films have actually included Trapped in Lust in 1080p HD on their new Branded to Kill Blu-Ray. DVDBeaver has some screenshots from the disc here towards the end of the page.
I don’t think it looks very good to be honest, perhaps barely better than what a DVD could do but at least it does seem to actually be HD and not simply an upscale. I’ll take it.

Synapse Films/Impulse Pictures’ DVDs of Female Gym Coach: Jump and Straddle & Office Love: Behind Closed Doors were released today. I don’t have them here yet but there are several reviews already out and I’ll link to them (well the ones I know of) below the image. Both movies (as is the case with almost all of the Nikkatsu releases from Impulse Pictures) have been previously released years ago in Japan by Geneon Entertainment. I would expect the quality to be pretty much the same but the now OOP Japanese discs were never English friendly.

Arrow Films announced their upcoming Blu-Ray disc of Seijun Suzuki’s Branded to Kill (殺しの烙印, 1967) and the press release mentions one of the extras to be Atsushi Yamatoya’s roman porno Trapped in Lust / 愛欲の罠 (1973). The word is that it will be standard definition only (nooo) which is probably why it is listed so low in the extras section.
Trapped in Lust has previously had a DVD release but that was 6 years ago (now OOP) in Japan and without any English language options.

Happinet have listed their next batch of (4) Roman porno DVDs. The titles are:
団鬼六 縄と肌 / Rope and Skin (Shōgorō Nishimura, 1979)
団鬼六 薔薇地獄 / Hell of Roses (Shōgorō Nishimura, 1980)
団鬼六 蛇と鞭 / Snake and Whip (Shōgorō Nishimura, 1986)
団鬼六 美女縄地獄 / Beauty In Rope Hell (Genji Nakamura, 1983)
So all of them are based on the writings of Oniroku Dan (団 鬼六). Only Genji Nakamura’s 団鬼六 美女縄地獄 is completely new to DVD (I think), the other three were already released by Geneon Entertainment years ago. I suspect these are just reprints of those discs (which looked just fine). Release date is August 2nd 2014. The discs won’t have any English language options and are locked to region 2.

So I made a couple of accounts at various social media sites (Facebook, Google+, Twitter) because… well isn’t that where everything is happening now? I’m soo anti-social though that I wonder if the accounts will ever amount to anything as I hear you actually have to do something there for people to be interested.

In 2012 when Nikkatsu celebrated their 100th year there were quite a lot of roman porno titles being released.
Studio 復刻シネマライブラリー (reprint cinema library) released a total of 100 movies on Made-On-Demand DVD-R discs. Only a couple of the movies had been available previously (on DVD that is, many had been released as VOD). The discs are region 2 locked, no English subtitles on these and the quality probably varies a lot but I doubt many look very good. I can’t say anything for certain about the quality as I have personally only seen one of these discs. That one is interlaced non-anamorphic 1.85:1, probably better than the VOD version and VHS release of the same movie but… Still much better than nothing I guess.
