I recently received my DVD from the gravure idol Amano Ai (天野 あい).
Amano Ai (天野 あい) Plastic Candy Gravure Idol DVD Tease
Amano Ai is a really sexy and innocent looking Japanese gravure idol. I had never seen a gravure DVD before and I have always wondered what they were like. In each scene, Ai slowly and suggestively strips her adorable clothes down to her lingerie or bikini. In one scene, she also gets… creative with a shower head. The DVD was very sexy as expected from the Akiba idol. The cosplays, the delectable bikini, the sensual expressions, and the arousing poses… This was certainly a wonderful watch.
Perhaps what takes the experience to another level is how personal it felt.
It was really very exciting to open the package to discover an idol had signed the DVD and several really pretty photographs addressed to Yi Hsieh (That’s me!). For a brief moment, looking at all those hearts, loves, and the cute pictures, I felt a personal bond to Amano Ai.
Of course, I do realize the superficiality of my excitement. We have never actually talked, not even with Emails. To Ai, I am just another name. And to me, Ai is an idol with a sexy video, who I had not known much about before this. Still, even understanding how shallow the meaningless signature is, I do feel that vague sense of connection. I guess this is a testament to the curious power of fandoms and the influence of celebrities.
Anyway, a bit about how I got the DVD. A while back, Danny Choo had a giveaway on his blog. With my brilliant puzzle solving and computer forensic skills, I was able to finally win the prize. (J/K. It was actually all luck…)
Big thanks to Amano Ai for taking the time to send this. Also, thanks to Danny Choo, who hosted this giveaway and was very responsive when the first package got lost.
