Osada Eikichi in SMマニア

SMマニア (SM Mania) was a Pocket-sized magazine, containing mainly text and adds, but also some illustration and kinbaku-photos.

This issue (no 10 1996) contains some some smaller images with rope by Akechi Denki, and a glossy section with rope by Yukimura Haruki. For the blog, however, I have chosen images from a longer section with rope by Osada Eikichi.

In a recent interview with Osada Steve, Wykd Dave posed the question ”Are there important figures in the history of Japanese bondage that you feel we should know about in the West but that we aren’t aware of?”

After going through some of the history of Kinbaku, Steve-san answered: ”Regarding Japanese rope artists that so far have evaded the radar in the West, I’d say that Miura Takumi (神浦匠) is perhaps the most underrated nawashi outside of Japan.” (Read the whole interview with Osada Steve here: http://rope-topia.com/osada-steve-interview/ )

Here is a link to an interview Osada Steve did with Miura Takumi, from 2008: http://www.tokyobound.com/blog/?p=162

Again breaking my own rules for the blog, I include also a reference to some DVDs with Miura. While all excellent, I especially want to give my highest recommendations to the DVD series Miura did together with Akechi Denki – I have learned very much from them: 緊縛技形宝典 (1-4), 2005–2006

The DVD緊縛-緋影神縛円舞 documents a live performance from 2006.

The photo-CD-rom お母さんの秘密(with the small cover, from 2005) is with the model Camelia Tsubaki and shows rope and SM-play, including some waterbondage…

日本緊縛師列伝 (Nihon kinbakushi retsuden)

This book, edited by Sanada Nobuyuki, I found particularly interesting. It presents eight Japanese bakushi with a section of colour images of their work, and interviews: Nureki Chimuo, Akechi Denki, Shima Shikou, Hige, Marai Masato, Naka Akira, Randa Mai and Sayaka.

In addition, it has a few historical sections with black-and-white images by Itoh Seiu… and a couple of pages with images of Osada Eikichi at the Bondage bar in Shinjuku – probably taken at the same time as the images printed in the magazine in my previous blog-post (here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/osada-eikichi-in-m女マニアcollector-1999/ )

This is a collection of photos and illustrations edited by Dan Oniroku in 1996. The contents are quite varied – Kinichi Tanaka’s photos of Kate Asabuki, tied by Akechi Denki, stands out. Most of Tanaka’s photos are taken from the book ”Pleasure and a little pain” that was published the year before – one, however is from the same photo-shoot but not included in the earlier book.
As a curiosity, it can be mentioned that the book also features photos taken by the American photographer Ken Marcus, who the same year (1996) also published a photo-book with bondage-photos in Japan called ”California Club”. (And in 2009, he took the pictures for the Two Knotty Boys ”Back on the Ropes”…)
