I had this funny feeling when i watched the pv for Bidama for the first time... when she plays with her dress and you can see her gorgeous legs, i felt like a rush of blood coming straight to my head... and i thought... hey, thatīs sexy!!!

Many people belive that sexy is about show some skin, explicit lyrics and dirty dancing, but i belive that innocence is the most sexy quality that a girl can have.

I think that asians understand this very well... not for nothing pop acts like morning musume, w or artists like Aya Matsuura are so popular among the guys.

No. She's not sexy at all. She's cute and funny but she's certainly not sexy. Someone sexy would be Koda Kumi who is like the polar opposite of Ai.

I'm gonna be the only one to agree with jaysr ai can be sexy sometimes. I'm sorry, but Koda Kumi is "sexy" in the wrong sense, and it's not the only kind of "sexiness" out there. You can be sexy without all the "sex". Seriously, in some of the pictures in her photobook she does look pretty sexy! Nod Just the way she carries herself, how she poses, her facial expressions, etc. She's definitely cute, but knows how to work it as well.

And BTW, IMHO I really don't consider Koda Kumi "sexy", but more of "dirty"...no offense...

One small little example of a sexy ai. woot~

I find her more cute. ^^
She kinda was in Kuroge PV, though.
Yes, if you compare PV's from America to Japan, the U.S DEFINETLY is more "dirty". Blank stare
I don't like it...

I think Ai is very beautiful, and she can be sexy, but in her own, very classy way. Though, I have to say that her cuteness and jovial spirit is much more a part of her appeal to me than her sexiness. Love

I don't see how Otsuka can ever be considered sexy. She's just cute.... Even if she tries to be sexy... it still won't look like any good attempt....

Sure, Otsuka is pretty and cute, but not sexy. Confused

Yeah same here Confused Plus she does not promote that image of sexiness. She's more like promoting the image of a young cute schoolgirl imo since she doesn't look older than 18. And honestly I don't think she'd be able to keep the attitude too if she manages to look sexy. It requires attitude too to be sexy and not only looks.

Koda might be dirty but she can really promote that image well I must say. In a manner which few Japanese artists dare to do. And it paid off really well. She has formed a strong fanbase and is quite popular herself in Japan. And she took a huge risk which few artists would have taken. Even if I'm not really a huge fan of Koda, I must say she had guts to do it. She was transgressive in Japan and managed to get their attention well.

Ayu, Ami Suzuki and BoA also sometimes are able to be sexy though not in an explicit manner as Kumiko. I've seen some music videos like Ami's Eventful, where she danced and wore a sexy red catsuit. It wasn't revealing yet it was sexy and she herself had the aura of being sexy. Same goes for BoA's Dakishimeru. They were not as extreme as Western artists yet they had that aura in them which made them sound and look sexy. But I have yet so see a sexy Ai in a music video. The sexiest I've seen her is in her photobook which had a certain degree of sexiness. Otherwise her music videos are full of her in baggy clothes, trousers and cute outfits.

And sorry but as a European I don't see sexiness in innocence. I see sexiness in being daring and innovative and making your fans gasp in surprise. my name's WOMEN had that sort of aura without being too extreme. Ai looks and acts like she's a young teen and that's her appeal - being cute, down to earth and pretty.

i think in that there lies the problem. i think the western idea of sexy is overshadowing the asian idea. i will completely agree with you when you say that koda kumi is trying to be sexy. but that kind of thing doesn't work for everybody (certainly not for me). it is an interpretation of sexy that conforms to the ideas of the west. i think that ai can be very sexy. im not entirely convinced that she was trying to be sexy in the bidama pv but definately in kurege. i mean look at my signature...lol

it is true that ai exploits the young and cute *the kawaii* image but i wonder how much of that is her and how much of that is avex trying to maintain her love punch image that shot her to instant fame.

i think that with songs like daisuki da yo, kingyou hanabi, friends, planitarium, natsu sora, and the sort, ai is trying hard to introduce the idea of a serious singer/songwriter to her fans.

so ai, sexy? definately, in her own elegant way. Love

like someone said above, she definately knows how to work it.

^_^

I think that Ai has her own beauty, but the word "sexiness" seems to be too loaded here. How about "physical attractiveness"...?

regarding the 'kawaii image', you certainly do raise an interesting point in suggesting whether avex is trying to maintain the image. there is no doubt that the kawaii image shot her to fame, along with the ever-so-cute sakuranbo. To add to that, record companies actually do have a lot of power over most of their artists, for instance, their contracts will say 'you are allowed to have boyfriends, but you are not allowed to marry for the duration of this conctract' etc, and things like that, which may come across as 'controlling' the artist.

Whether Avex is trying to keep on pushing on with the cute image, I don't think it can last that long such that it will even come close to rivalling Ayu's popularity. For instance, can you seriously see Otsuka still singing cute songs at 30 years of age? I certainly don't want to, despite the fanboyism that inhibits my soul.

Take Hilary Duff for example [quiet you ._.], she shot to fame with the cute, sweet, innocent image, two-three years on, she is slowly maturing.

The cute image can only last so long. Whereas the sexy image can be everlasting. That's why I think Otsuka is still maintaining this cute image while she still has the chance and youth to do so.

Whether Otsuka really is a cute person, or that is just fabricated images, I think that she really does have a cute personality... I think all the behind-the-scenes videos can attest to this... and her cute drawings...

As for Otsuka showing a more serious and mature side through her ballads, I think it goes for everyone when I say we all have different personalites within us, and different situations brings out different sides of us. Sure, Otsuka can be cute, but she can be mature and belt out a good ballad once in a while. Also, it's always good for artists to show diversity in terms of style.

But I do agree that her ballads really testify her abilites as a singer/songwriter.

I would say she could be sexy, but she needs not to do so, i think. She is simply very cute and casual, and she does have a natural charm that attract others, though she is not sexy.

Yeah simply put I see her as sexy or not in my perception. I cannot see her otherwise since I'm western myself. And for me she's cute, sweet, funny and adorable - everything but sexy. I have never seen her act sexy or behave in such a manner to look sexy.

Also Avex and Ai have realised how Ai's cute "image" pretty much works in her advantage. So she keeps it up most of the times. Even in bidama she's wearing that cute dress and looking sweet. Simply put it's not the sexy image which works for her but the cute one. I'm sure many Ai fans would freak out and lose their heads if she did a photoshoot similar to hitomi's or did a new version of Ayu's my name's WOMEN.

HilaryDuffFanboy raises some interesting points too. She's what..23? I don't know since I don't keep track but I cannot see her at 26 singing happy and cutesy tracks. I do think she'll have to produce a new image to keep her popularity. But I doubt it would be sexy. More like classy, close to Hitomi Shimatani's style.

I am personally not really impressed by Kumi's sexiness since I've seen a bunch of similar promotional videos on MTV all the time. Yet the Japanese aren't so used to that sort of sexiness so for them Kumi is something quite appealing.

this has become quite the riveting thought thread... ^_^

i do agree with Rinoa on the need for a new image soon. but that soon is infact a couple of years away. although it would be interesting to see ai pull a 180 like tommy feburary6 and come out the other end all punky smashing guitars ... i find it hard to imagine how she'd not look adorable doing it. i admit, she's more cute than sexy. ive been thinking about 'tokyo friends' (she's quite an actress actually) and how *kawaii* she was in it.

wo0t wo0t... my ai fandom is at an all time high right now .. Love

but i was serious when i mentioned avex trying to maintain her cute image. i mean think about it, ai is avex's biggest talent. im sure they have a say in how she puts herself forward.

coming back to ai being sexy or not. if being sexy is showing lots of skin and acting horny.. no ai is poles apart. but if being sexy is oozing charm attracting every hot blooded single male out there, i think ai does it too well.

she sure has cast a spell on me *falls off chair for saying something so corny*
