Return of the lazy blogger

Yes. I am too lazy and as a result this blog has suffered. It’s my first post here after January 10, 2012. I had a few other sites/blogs that were neglected for various personal reasons. Now I am trying to see what happened to those sites and also trying to keep my blogs updated as far as possible. While expressing my regrets to my regular visitors and friends, I also request you to support me further in my humble efforts to do as much as I can to keep the site updated and interesting. Also, I know that this blog needs a lot of other work like removing dead links, replacing images that have been deleted from the source, and a lot more such things. In the blogroll there are a good number of links of other blogs/sites that needs to be checked if they are still live and for reciprocal action. If the owners of those sites happen to read this page, I request them to ensure that the link to this site is kept live so that I may not remove the sites that do not reciprocate. Any message in this regard may be communicated to me through comment to this post or through the chat box. Viewers are also requested to inform about any dead links they may find or other suggestions to make this blog interesting and useful to the visitors. For this purpose too the chat box or the comments tag can be used. I thank all of you again for the kind cooperation.

Saaya Irie, the Japanese junior idol

It was a few years ago that I first came across the photo of Saaya Irie on the internet. At that time I was surprised that teenager, who is 17 years of age now, started modeling for bikini and lingerie at the age of 11. She soon became so popular that anyone searching for photos with keywords such as ‘chidol, Japanese actress, voice actress, junior idol, singer, low teen idol, etc., would come upon Saaya in the top of the search results pages. Perhaps, she was the youngest ever model to pose in bikinis and lingerie for the most popular brands in Japan.

Born on 15 November 1993, in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan, Irie Saaya, has been appearing various media including movies, TV, etc. She was also a member of the Japanese musical group Sweet Kiss that was disbanded in May 2006.

In Japan a junior idol (or chidol, abbreviation for child idol) is defined as a child idol or an ‘early teenager’ who is pursuing a career as a photographic model, including gravure idols and AV idols. Apart from them, child actors and junior pop singers are also included in the category of junior idols. In addition to the regular known work or profession of such idols, they are also featured in photobooks and DVDs, and these are equally popular as any other media in Japan.

What is particular about Saaya is her innocent looks, equally complemented her natural grace and attractive looks and her ability to pose for the camera as naturally as any seasoned, matured model can pose while doing full justice to the brand or cause for which she has taken up the responsibility.
