Every time I see BRATS a new music video I can only think how young and dumb you have to be to throw away a career in gravure that you excel in to make terrible music for a bunch of emo American teeny boppers and get 15k views a video over the course of a year. I can only imagine Rei's parents advising her to continue modeling but she wanted to be a rebel so bad she's almost 22 and nobody outside of ex-gravure fans and kids with pronouns on their Twitter profiles has any awareness of her music. Aya wasn't even good at modeling with Rei having taken all the good genes from her and she certainly isn't a singer. Contrast this to Tomoe Yamanaka who retired after modeling n the prime of her beauty and is now having fun at Hanshin Tiger games off of the money she made with gravure and having a smile on her face while doing it. Rei had the assets and personality to be big in gravure like Ai Shinozaki or Saaya or the Yamanakas but instead she wanted to be some sort of rebel who didn't listen when she was inevitably told her singing voice sounds terrible.

And now that nobody looks at her because her music sucks and inevitably she needs attention, having had it since she was a kid, she has to resort to playing the "woe is me, I am a victim" card to get sympathy views from anglo feminists on the internet.

Imagine going from the picture on the left to looking like a meth addict and thinking you made a right choice. Oh well.
You are fucking deluded, LOL!

It's harsh but there's some truth to what kawaii_emu says. She's a top-tier gravure idol but a third-rate singer at best. With that being said, as noted above gravure work doesn't pay amazingly and Rei's made herself into more of a brand so maybe she's on top of things.

Even though she's old and tattooed I still wanna see her in a t-back. If she's such a rebel, surely she can start an Onlyfans.

Top tier young gravure idol, which basically means nothing since her appeal was always to a niche audience - she would not have been popular as a gravure idol at all if she had continued (possibly she would have been if she had picked the AV route) - people here are obviously die-hard fans of her and aren't very objective about things.

Singers don't have to be super talented now. They can use auto-tune if they really want to be that good, but in Japan it's always been the case that a lot of pop stars are popular because of who they are and their story, as much as any singing ability.

That's Japan for you. A lot of people are really good singers, they learn at school and practice at karaoke, so it's the joining a band and making a go of it that sets pop stars apart.

Wrong. Rei looked better at 16 that she did when she was 11. People who only liked her that young are a minority - most gravure fans like gilrs in their late teens and 20s. You honestly believe that Rei as she looks now wearing a bikini wouldn't sell? lol I mean now that she ruined her image with the biker wife look maybe not but had she remained in gravure and took care of herself she would have definitely sold. She was the most famous U-15 and was also the most famous over 15 not yet to reach 20. Participate in Japanese language discussion boards and you can see how Rei was set to be the next Saaya or Ai. She doesn't need huge knockers to reach that level, as Marina Nagasawa has shown.
not much of what you say is true, but there is no point in discussing this any further.

@kawaii_emu you need to touch some grass stat. It only takes one of your posts to see that you're incredibly biased towards your own delusions, and are so patronizing as to assume that you have a better idea of what other people should do with their lives than they do themselves. Apparently, in your head, it is more important that Rei continues to be that prim and proper girl of old serving material for your fapping than it is for her to be doing whatever else she god damn prefers to do, like the independent grown person that she is now. This is incredibly self-centered and everytime you make a new post about it you're only exposing more of your mad selfishness. You have to be kidding to expect any symphathy for anything you're saying.

lol she's a gravure idol. She can do whatever she would like to do, but as a public figure people are allowed to make criticisms. I'm not putting a to her head and making her do anything. What is even the point of this forum anymore? The whole section is dead and outside of the JI section Scanlover does everything better and actually has discussion focus on the gravure aspect o gravure idols rather than getting all pissy if someone makes a critique and white knighting for a model that lives 3000 miles across the sea from them. Rei fell off a cliff so bad that the most discussion this thread has gotten in the past couple years is this screeching about my post.

This is like going on a soccer forum and crying that someone said "Player x was a great soccer player but they decided to go fuck around and make terrible art that looks like macaroni art from the first grade rather than keep playing soccer". Obviously people are there for soccer - not shitty art. I don't know about you people but I joined AO for gravure. Now with all the good posters like gokkunfan and desiorner, reiotaku etc mysteriously gone from the forum the same week of 2020 (take a look at their profiles - happened the same week their discord group got nuked), this place is pointless.

You are not being 'prosecuted' for having an opinion like you imply, you are being ridiculed for saying stupid things and not knowing normal boundaries for human behavior.

You are full on mental, and completely lack self awareness - I doubt it's the first time you've heard that, seriously get some help.

@CoolKevin I'd delete my account but the admins here won't even give users the courtesy to do that so go ahead and ban me lest I spam this dying forum with stupidity until that happens.

I was quite willing to let you rant away until you calmed down, I wanted to leave in the picture in about the Nazi and Jew, just to let the world know how pathetic it is, but it is over the top and the complaints was coming in, no one touched your posts except yourself, you edited your own posts,

Do what others and enjoy your favourite Idol/s, no need to put anyone down,

Now with all the good posters like gokkunfan and desiorner, reiotaku etc mysteriously gone from the forum the same week of 2020
that is wrong, one left long before that, one still visits, and one has not been seen for about 13 months, and for all different reasons, there are many reason why members come and go

but better for you, go into JAV and find a nice actress there, and exercise your penis and blow off some steam and relax

P.S
I will remove this post and a few others to give everyone a chance to catch up
