As some of you guys and girls might remember, a couple of days ago I wrote about Eri Kitami (she’s a Japanese model, cosplayer and gamer) and Dorasu’s Nintendo Switch release of their lewd idol sim Switch game “Pure / Electric Love “What do you want?” – Eri Kitami –”. Well, guess what? Shortly after that I published our post about “Pure Electric” love, I reached out to Eri Kitami for an interview. Long story short, Eri said yes to the interview!

So we talked about everything from her game “Pure Electric Love“, lewd games, lewd content, how her modeling career started, cosplay, video games, anime to her thoughts on censorship in video games. So without further ado, please enjoy our interview with Eri 😉

eri kitami

Miss Eri Kitami is Japanese model, cosplayer and gamer, and she also just happens to be the star of her own game as well (the game in question is called “Pure/Electric Love”).

As some of our readers might not know who you are, would you do us the honor and introduce yourself?  

Eri
I’m a Japanese model. I wear sexy costumes and latex costumes and sometimes anime costumes. My age is 24, and I like the fetish scene.

Robin TGG
Have you been into video games and gaming for a long time? If so, how did it all start for you? (your first game, first console, etc.).

Eri
When I was a high-school student, I had many games. I had a PS and PS2, GameBoy Advance, DS and an XBox. I liked Mario and Kingdom Hearts.

eri kitami pure electric love

“Pure/Electric Love” (it’s a lewd idol sim Switch game starring Eri Kitami) is out right now for Nintendo Switch in North America and Japan.

Robin TGG
How did the “Pure/Electric Love” Switch game came to be? And did Dorasu reach out to you about the game? Or was it a game that you have always wanted to do?

Eri
Yes, Dorasu contacted me to make the game.

Robin TGG
Here’s a follow-up question to “Pure/Electric Love”. How comes that the game ended up on the Switch console? Because Nintendo doesn’t exactly have a great history when it comes to lewd games and lewd content (censorship and whatnot). Furthermore, how has the reception been for “Pure/Electric Love” so far? (positive? Negative? Mixed?). 

Eri
First, this game was going to be a mobile phone game only. However, even though we cleared Android’s criteria, iTunes said they didn’t want lewd games. So, instead of iTunes, we released it on Switch. Nintendo didn’t care because the game doesn’t have nude photos. The reaction has been mixed, and a lot of gamers have downloaded it as a joke. Nevertheless, my fans are positive about it. I think the game is funny.

Eri Kitami is very well-known on the lewd scene in both Japan and outside of Japan.

Robin TGG
Would you like to get involved in more video game projects in the future? If so, is there any game companies or game series that you would like to work with? Or perhaps you would like to work on a brand-new IP?

Eri
Yes, I want to collaborate on more games. I want to make a pedometer game. For example, if the game user doesn’t meet their goal, my character will be angry, or if they meet their goal, they will get a reward.

eri kitami lewd super mario

Eri really likes lewd games and lewd content, and she’s not a fan of censorship and restrictions in video games.

Robin TGG
What’s your take on lewd games, lewd content in general and censorship in video games? Because in the West, we tend to get really nervous if the Western release of a Japanese game will be uncensored or not on release (or if the said game will be released at all…Like in the case with “DOA Xtreme 3”, you had to import that one in-order to play it). 

Eri
In Japan, censorship is not as strict as the West. I like lewd games and lewd contents, so I think Japan is better. I think the Western governments are too prudish. I don’t understand the problem with DoA Extreme 3. If people are over 18, they shouldn’t be restricted.

eri kitami gamer girl

Eri is a big fan of game series such as “Super Mario Bros”, “Final Fantasy” and “Metal Gear Solid”.

Robin TGG
What’s your favorite game format? (PC, console, mobile?) And do you have any favoured video games and game series?

Eri
I like console games. I like Mario, the Kingdom Hearts Series and Final Fantasy.

Robin TGG
How did you end up being a fetish model? I mean, I could be wrong now, but you’re quite young right? (21?) So how did it all start for you? And what has it been like for you working a fetish model?  

Eri
First when I was 16 years old, I started portrait modeling. Next, when I was 20 years old, a latex shop contacted and requested me to model latex. This is how it all started for me.

eri kitami shimakaze cosplay kancolle

Besides video games, Eri is also a huge fan of anime and manga (in this picture Eri is cosplay as Shimakaze from the anime “Kancolle”)

Robin TGG
I do recall seeing some pictures of you watching anime in the past. So, is there any animes that you really like? And do you read mangas as well? If so, which mangas do you like? And why?

Eri
I like Evangelion and Crayon Shin-chan. As for manga, I like Houshin Engi, Ushio to Tora, Jojo and many more.

eri kitami sexy lady

I think it’s safe to say that Eri is a very attractive lady, and her booty game is on point as well :3

Robin TGG
It’s pretty well-known to the most on the lewd scene that you are a fetish model, but from what I’ve seen from your past pictures, you also do cosplays right? Have you cosplayed for a long time? And how did that start? And do you have any cosplay plans for the future?

Eri
Yes, I also do cosplay. I have done cosplayer for as long as I have done fetish modeling. It started when a cosplay photographer contacted me and requested me to appear in a downloadable photo book. When I get older maybe I will quit cosplay.

eri kitami sexy lady is sexy

I don’t know about you, but I find Eri to be even more attractive now that I know that she likes anime, manga and video games. Furthermore, she’s anti-censorship in video games as well (Eri is a 10/10 girl in my book).

Robin TGG
May I ask what you’re currently playing in terms of video games? And is there any games that you´re really looking forward to play this year?

Eri
What I’m playing now is Metal Gear Solid. What I’m looking forward to is Kojima Productions’ Games.

eri kitami sexy pose

Eri had us know that she likes lewd games which are targeted at male gamers more than she likes lewd games that are aimed at females, because the lewd games for males are lewder.

Robin TGG
I’m not 100% sure what the Japanese market looks like in terms of lewd games, but I do know for a fact that more and more female gamers are playing lewd games all over the world. So do you think that we will see more lewd games that are targeted at female gamers in the future? (female gamers in the West have told me that they want more romantic and lewd games with hot and sexy guys).

Eri
I’m not really interested in games that are targeted at female gamers. I like games that are targeted at male gamers more because they are lewder.

eri kitami super sexy pose

I honestly never thought that I would see a lewd game like “Pure/Electric Love” on the Nintendo Switch, but there you go. So I take it that we will see more lewd games for the Switch in the near future? (I sure hope so!).

Robin TGG
Since Nintendo has allowed Dorasu to release “Pure/Electric Love” on their Nintendo Eshop platform for the Switch, do you think that this means that we will get to see more XXX rated titles on Nintendo’s platform in the future? Because Nintendo has hold on to their family-friendly image for quite some time now. 

Eri
I think there is a chance that they will do that.

eri kitami sexy schoolgirl

“Sexy female characters are cute, and whatever game they appear in; it will become more fun.” – Eri Kitami (it’s as true as it’s said).

Robin TGG
I don’t know if you have heard it, but just recently an American study proved that sexualized video game females reduce rape myth acceptance and hostile sexism (the study was done by Glenna L. Read, Teresa Lynch and Nicholas L. Matthews). What’s your take on that matter? And do you think that there is an outcry for sexy female game characters and lewd content in games that shouldn’t even be there in the first place?

I bet that it’s no big deal in Japan, but in the West gamers, publishers and game developers get shamed because of their liking for sexy female game characters and lewd content.

Eri
I think it’s crazy to say that there is a connection between sexualized video games and rape. In that case, there would be an increase in murders because of martial arts games. However, in Japan, martial arts games are extremely popular, and the murder rate is very low.

I don’t understand why some people say there are games that sexy female characters don’t need to appear in. Sexy female characters are cute, and whatever game they appear in; it will become more fun. I didn’t know that people in the West shame gamers or developers just because they like sexy female characters. I think people who do that are prudish.

Robin TGG
What’s your plans, hopes and expectations for the rest of the year?

Eri
This year I will publish my second photo book and do more photo shooting. I think sexy content makes the world a better place.
