Hiroki Ryuichi data wanted

Hi Miles,

FETISH is about to open in Japan; sometime in August or early September.  I
haven't checked the kanji yet.  That's the English title on the poster.

It's quite common for pink films to have two different titles: one for
theatrical, one for video.  They're different markets so different hooks
work.  I'm sure Roland can give more definitive answers.

The Takita Yojiro title sounds like his feature debut, LECHEROUS WOMAN
TEACHER (Chikan onna kyôshi) from 1981.

If any errors in below, do let me know either privately or on the list.

Note: Incomplete.  Hiroki has directed at least 32 films.  Note I've
"corrected" katakana (such as "Chikan to skirt") which in retrospect was
perhaps not standard practise.  All macrons are marked.  If you have any
problems reading above because of the macrons (perhaps because your browser
thinks I'm trying to write kanji), I can strip them for you.  Films like
"Hakui chôkyô" which were released in January should perhaps have their
dates brought back a year to represent copyright date.  I haven't checked
the print.  And although I AM AN SM WRITER wasn't commercially released
until September 2000, it is copyrighted 1999.  If you use the credits in
print/web, I'd appreciate an allusive "AFL" credit.
