Yuji Sakamoto (坂本優二, Sakamoto Yūji) is a Japanese adult video (AV) director who has directed more than 250 videos during his career,[1] primarily with the Alice Japan studio.[2]

Life and career[edit | edit source]

Sakamoto began directing in the AV industry at least as early as November 1994 with the video Wet Venus, starring Saori Miyauchi, for the Media Station Cosmos label.[3] The next month, December 1994, marked the first video directed by Sakamoto listed at the Alice Japan archive. This work, Indecent Eye (淫ら眼), starred Shana (釈那) as a 900-year-old witch who has sex with and then kills men to retain her youth.[4] This would begin Sakamoto's long association with Alice Japan and be the first of the more than 170 videos that he had directed for that company through 2011, twenty-eight of them featuring superstar AV Idol Yuma Asami.[2]

By 1995, in addition to his Alice Japan videos, he was also working for Max-A,[1] another company associated with Alice Japan and Media Station in the Kuki group.[5] One of his Max-A videos was the October 1996 Pin Pin Girl for the Calen label, which marked the AV debut of actress Jun Kusanagi.[6][7] He also presided over the AV debuts of Asami Jō for Alice Japan in 1995[8][9] and Akira Watase in the May 2000 Media Station release Venus.[10][11]

In a departure from the AV field, Sakamoto wrote and directed the V-Cinema drama Message: Hakanaki shoujo no shi (Message 儚なき少女の詩), which was released in April 1999.[12][13]

When the S1 No. 1 Style studio was launched in November 2004, Sakamoto was one of their inaugural directors along with Hideto Aki, [Jo]Style and KINGDOM.[14] Sakamoto has also directed for other major Japanese AV studios, including Soft On Demand (SOD), Moodyz and Attackers.[1] Among other work at SOD, he directed two entries in the company's "Masturbation Aid" series, starring Sally Yoshino and Nao Oikawa.[15] He also supervised three episodes in the Attackers studio "Lady Panther" series, Lady Panther Vol. 4 with Riko Tachibana (May 2006), Lady Panther Vol. 5 with An Nanba (Feb. 2007), and Lady Panther Vol. 6 starring Maria Ozawa and Hikari Hino (Jan. 2008).[16]
