Pink Film
Pink film (ピンク映画, Pinku eiga or Pink eiga) in its broadest sense includes almost any Japanese theatrical film that includes nudity (hence 'pink') or deals with sex.[1] This encompasses everything from dramas to action thrillers and exploitation film features. However, some writers have reserved the term 'pink film' for Japanese sex movies produced and distributed by smaller independent studios such as OP Eiga, Shintōhō Eiga, Kokuei and Xces. In this narrower sense, Nikkatsu's Roman Porno series, Toei's Pinky Violence series and the Tokatsu films distributed by Shochiku
Shochiku
would not be included as these studios have much larger distribution networks.[2] Until the early 2000s, they were almost exclusively shot on 35mm film. Recently, filmmakers have increasingly used video (while retaining their emphasis on soft-core narrative)
