I find this site online via Jlist.com -> http://www.jmate.com/interviews.php

It has interviews with many of today's most famous AV Stars in English.

Looks like they just made the interviews up, they are all very similar.

Nah -- that would suck if they did. Jlist is a very reputable site and I would doubt they'd do something like that.

The interviews are ligit. J-List/J-Mate take them from the popular mags and translate them. I have a number linked out of my area. The issue is not legitimacy, but readablility. The readers want to hear certain comments and the interviewers obligue. Viva and Chika, two interviewers work with popular production companies as SOD and a few other AV DVD "Indie" companies and conduct live interviews on the airways weekly with new stars. Their show is quite popular. Go here for a look: http://xxx.kuki.co.jp/variety/mon/intervie/.

The general format is to present the Ladies (girls) as the innocents who have ventured into the adult realm. The "Pedio-mindset" in Japan yearns for this approach, and the providers will gladly give it. I have a project in the works to do a few interviews with some of the AV Idols myself. The language barrier or use of it for exclusivity is the only factor slowing me down. The Japanese market is really reluctant to share resources, even when it could benefit them. But I have a few contacts trying to help in Japan.

J-Mate usually gives the most current and correctly translated interviews. Peter of the J-List is quite reliable and upfront. He sponsors J-Mate (and me) and even though he is in the business, he plays fair.
