Summary:

A really well built Asian site with a nice lot of exclusive video content for you to view. The site allows for great navigation between content allowing you to stay with your preferred content. Although this is my first Asian site review, after reading some of the other reviews on the realm I would probably say this is one of the best Asian video sites on the net at the moment.

General:

Well this is my first Japanese site review but I have read up on some of the reviews by my fellow critics so lets hope I know what I am talking about. Right well here goes guys you will have to bear with me on this one.

With a weird name like Av9898 I really didnít know what to expect but once the homepage had loaded I was presented with a packed, but well laid out, homepage; the design reminded me of sites such as VideoBox and DVDBox and I am pretty sure this is what they where going for and, with a fairly nice pink theme, it pulls it off well. Oh and a little tip when you first hit the site, the English button is in the top right otherwise you will have to learn Japanese pretty damn quick. The home page has everything you need to jump straight into some quality content with their top 10 movies, most popular actresses and the latest added content all easily accessible with the click of a mouse.

The FAQ section of the site doesnít actually answer many technical questions and in fact is mostly about the content on the site, luckily there was a little member support in case it all went horribly wrong. There is also a contact us link, as well as a cancel membership link, taking you to CCBill.


Content:

Now I am going to be honest and say that Japanese women really arenít my thing but I am well aware that there are a lot of you out there that just love them. The Asian women on this site are all young and pretty damn hot and using the performers list I am sure that everyone can find a girl that they like (I mean even I found a few in there that I liked the look of). Talking of the performers list it is just an alphabetised list of the girls with a 133 x 100 image of each of them, this is a really nice size allowing you to get a real feel for what the model looks like.

Once you have selected your oriental babe you get a few basic stats on her and then a list of all of the movies that she has starred in. This list has a box cover image, along with a short description of the movie and several 64 x 48 screenshots of the action which, if you squint you can make out what the action is going to be like.

Instead of padding their site with fluff like plug in galleries and pay per view web cam areas they have just got a hell of a lot of videos of exactly what any Asian lover wants to see, good work guys.


Video Section:

Now we get to the crux of this site, the videos, and most importantly none of them are censored unlike on a lot of Asian sites that you see. Just so that you know the reason that a lot of sites have censored content is that in Japan you are required by law to censor the display of genitalia. But these videos can be distributed without the censorship outside of Japan. So the Av9898 servers are located in the US allowing you to view the Asian girls in all of their glory and it is good to see as otherwise it is pretty pointless porn and you end up watching a rather raunchy version of Crime watch.

They have really gone to town with Av9898 and you can either select your video from the performers list, or from the massive list of different categories down the left; much the same as the DVD archive sites I mentioned above.

Each of the videos are split into 6 sections and unfortunately there is no option to download the full movie. Each of these sections has two download/stream options; these are either 2000kbps (640 x 480) or 700kbps (320 x 240). You once again have the mini screenshots for each of the clips as well as the length of the movie next to each one; incidentally the clips vary from 12 to 20 minutes long which is a pretty good length. On each of the movie pages the categories and actress info is all hyperlinked so that you are able to jump to different content nice and easily.

There is a nice lot of content and it is definitely going to keep you busy for a few months, plus all of the content is completely exclusive to Av9898 so you are not going to see this anywhere else.


Photo Section:

There is really no photo content available from this site unless you count the tiny screen shot pictures and the box covers.
