Hello everyone, :hi:

yesterday I came across GVG-177 starring Chitose Saegusa. And that was the reason for that thread. We all know these photoshopped covers. Breasts are getting bigger, faces suddenly look like on these Ulzzang / Fei zhu liu photos, and so on and so on. This is nothing worth to mention. But it seems sometimes they go a little bit over the top and shouldn't have done it at all. And Chitose Saegusa on the front cover of GVG-177 is such a case. Okay, she is chubby and you can also see that in her face. But she definitely doesn't look as bad in real like she does on that front cover.

Do you know any similar cases? :)

If you do so please post also the cover. You can attach images to your post using the "Upload a File" button. The image can be embedded to your post using the "Full Image" button which will appear after the successful upload.

As you wrote "elf creature" I looked for longer ears - like the Vulcans. But she hasn't. So may you explain it a little bit more? :)

Just look at that face! That's not Tsubomi, that's the face of some hideous christmas elf, long ears or not.

Okay, maybe I should add that I'm not a fan of her. So, please, forgive me. ;)

One of my favorites, Naho Hazuki, who to me is one of the sexiest full-figured ladies in JAV got majorly disrespected on the cover of MSBD-013.

On that cover she somehow looks even more corpulent than she really is. I mean: She has definitely some curves, but...
If I look at the covers of her other movies this seems often to be the case, isn't it? Maybe they want to push her in that genre / category.

The worst covers I've seen are the ones for the Dream Showers, especially the newer ones, but most of the older ones are terrible too, in a different way.

Examples?

I guess you mean her face on the front cover, right? Seems it doesn't have any depth at all.
Yes, the cover, and you're right, no depth, and the nose is pinched and narrowed, and consequently looks nothing like her. What makes them think that someone would find this more attractive than the real thing? You only have to turn the DVD box over to see her real face, anyway. I find these photoshop tweaks insulting, not only to the idols, but also to my taste, as though I'd automatically like a smaller nose, or bigger eyes, etc. Nature already makes women beautiful. I, for one, don't need commercial artists or cosmetic surgeons to second-guess any "improvements" that, ultimately, are based on a very narrow and modern (i.e. temporary) ideal of beauty.

These new ones are terrible for AIKA and HIKARI.

This is one of the reasons I have lost nearly all interest in JAV and porn in general. Luckily I have imagination and creativity and can make my own entertainment.

It's only going to get worse, of course.

This is getting so bad we might have to give up porn entirely and pursue relationships with real women!

Heh, just kidding!!

p.s. That Tsubomi cover was pretty bad. I didn't even know it was her at first until I read the name. Adobe's photoshop has created a monster!

Surprised there are no examples of boobs or butts being photoshopped like you see on Facebook and stuff.
