Audio/Video Quality: The Girls of Red Light District: Katsumi was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame by Red Light District using a variety of directors who shot the scenes for their original releases. The lighting was almost always strong and the cameras capably manned, some compositional mishaps and minor grain appearing at times. There were a lot of close up shots in the various scenes, almost as if it were a required selling point the editors were told to leave in, the video bitrate hovering in the 2.8 Mbps range using the usual MPEG-2 codec for this standard definition compilation of previously released scenes. The fleshtones were generally accurate and while there was still a need for polishing up most of the scenes, the overall look of them was pretty decent, though the light watermark in the lower right hand corner was smaller than usual. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English, the 192 Kbps aural bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate about average for an adult production. I could most of the vocals and the music was rarely a factor here, the experience not elevating the visual aspects particularly well but serving much like most gonzo productions expect the audio too in providing an array of loud screams and moans (with some dirty talk).
Body of Review: Red Light District was founded years ago by a handful of performer-turned-directors when they obtained financing to start a new type of gonzo production company, catering specifically to the rain coater crowd with a lot of straightforward smut one could appreciate. Along the way, there were some bumps in the road and the inevitable decline noticed by many but ultimately, they still shoot some solid smut and are now offering a series of compilations to help pay the bills. The latest of these compilations coming to me for review was The Girls of Red Light District: Katsumi, the six lengthy scenes all showcasing her sexual performance abilities very nicely indeed. While she has undergone a name change since the scenes were originally shot, there is no doubt that some of her best work was contained here, the discs harder to find now that they years have passed. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Me Luv U Long Time #4: Katsuni, Lexington Steele, Michael Stefano: Katsumi, the featured gal on the front dvd cover and another contender for the babe award here, allowed Lex and Michael to take her. She claimed to be in the business "almost three years" (it was more like 2.5 years when this was taped) and I've seen her in some really solid scenes. Being more experienced, she took anal and a DP with some ATM with a gusto that most performers just don't show. That she could do both of these guys at once is an accomplishment, especially with a smile of her face.
Scene Two: Black Dicks in Asian Chicks: Katsuni, Darren James: Katsuni, dressed in slutty lingerie, was up next as she showed off her "long ass Asian legs" to director David Luger, a guy I haven't heard from in a very long time. As he pawed her soft skin, she showed off her perfect pucker, David and scene partner Darren James both helping her spread her cheeks before she fingered her ass and provided dirty talk in French. The location was just a generic couch in a common living room, Katsuni as lean and perfectly proportioned as ever. She wanted Darren's big black cock and he ate her out first, savoring the experience before she dropped to her knees to slob his knob so aggressively. As Katsuni (then named "Katsumi") orally worshipped his pecker, he did his best to keep from busting a nut of genetic juice all over her face, the couple moving right into anal sex after that. Katsuni was an active rider of cock and bounced on his dick enthusiastically, the various positioned eliciting a nut of population pudding to grace her face.
Scene Three: Manuel Ferrara's POV #2: Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara: Katsumi is always a fan favorite. The half Japanese, half French girl appears in many DVDs by many different directors for many different companies. She's got a pair of cocks to play with in this scene. One being fake, and the director's ever-present dick. After showing the oral skills she's famous for, Katsumi puts that ass up in the air and allows both her holes to get properly porked. The scene ends with Katsumi getting hit in the face with demon seed. I always enjoy watching her work. (review by Colonel Mustard)
Scene Four: Assault That Ass #6: Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara: Katsumi is the beautiful Asian babe from the DVD cover. She is cute and fun to watch in action. Katsumi also has a French accent, which makes her even sexier. The fun begins with Katsumi getting it on with Manuel. He eats her out and she sucks his dick in a very odd position. She bends over backwards and blows him. Next she gets in a normal position and gets her face stuffed. Once sex gets added, there is some really heated action. The pair fuck like fiends together. A very hot scene. (review by Rob Randell)
Scene Five: Anal Expedition #10: Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara: Katsumi, the French-Asian gal featured on the front cover in a tiny pink thong, was up next as she continued where she left off in the living room by masturbating during Marie's scene. Her partner was Manuel Ferrara and he chased her POV style as she crawled along the floor slowly, taunting the camera as she crept up on a large glass anal plug. She kissed and sucked on it as she glared at the camera, preparing it for insertion in her firm booty to ready herself for Manuel's large cock. The blowjob built speed and increased in tempo as the scene continued but it ended in favor of him fucking her tight ass harder and faster. She did ATM and once on top of him, rode him actively as she struggled to catch her breath. The back porch was a decent place to screw and the couple had a lot of chemistry, marking it as a decent scene with some replay value. It finished up as expected, popping out a large load to coat her face and tonsils.
Scene Six: Brianna Love Oversexed: Katsuni, Brianna Love, Holly Wellin, Carmella Bing, Manuel Ferrara, Mr. Pete, Joachim Kessef: The final scene finds Brianna wearing a sexy fetish outfit (mmm, black latex) and driving to an orgy. When she gets there, she, Holly, and Katsumi get fucked and sucked by several different guys, including an African-American. There's some anal, double penetration, and the scene ends with Brianna's face getting covered in jizz. I'm sure a lot of people will like this scene, but after being underwhelmed by the rest of this movie, it failed to make much of an impression on me. (review by Justine De Sade)
Summary: The Girls of Red Light District: Katsumi by Red Light District had a lot of her earlier work and each scene showed her off in such a manner than fans new and old will want to make sure they have them, no obvious edits or truncation taking place even if no new material was included either so I rated it as a Recommended. In short, The Girls of Red Light District: Katsumi provided a lot of Katsuni's early work when she was still a relative newcomer, her fire and passion still outpacing her performance skills so give this one a look if you don't already have the scenes, many of them notable for the amount of chemistry between her and Manuel Ferrara.
