Inmu

()()()()()()! (Okay, come on!)”
– Yajuu Senpai

Manatsu no Yo no Inmu (真夏(まなつ)()淫夢(いんむ), lit. “A Midsummer Night's Lewd Dream”),1)2) often shortened to Inmu (淫夢) or INM, initially referred to Babylon Stage 34, the 2001 gay porn tape that ignited a scandal around a top college baseball draft prospect who would end up undrafted.

Nowadays, it's a catch-all term for a subculture that makes jokes about Japanese gay porn which largely resurfaced in the 2010s as a major foundation block of Niconico Douga's Rei no Are category, reprising its role from Gachimuchi, yet it remains a conflicting subject.

History

Tadano's scandal

“I was young, playing baseball, and going to college, and my teammates and I needed money.”
Kazuhito Tadano3)

Coat Corporation released Babylon Stage 34 on July 20, 2001 and people slowly suspected that one of the amateur actors was the college baseball pitcher, Kazuhito Tadano.4) This tanked his draft value, going undrafted in the 2002 NPB Draft, but he eventually addressed this issue after moving to the United States to join the Cleveland Indians' farm system in 2004, regretting his gay-for-pay mistake.5)6)

Afterwards, Tadano eventually returned to join the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in 2007, showing up in the 2012 Japan Series where he was thrown out the game for throwing a 'dangerous' pitch.7) He'd later retire in 2014,8) occasionally appearing as a pitching coach. In 2023, it was last reported that Tadano became a professional scout for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters.9)

Yajuu Senpai's reign

It was quite popular to joke about bizarre gay porn, such as Kuso Miso Technique or Hentai Kuso Oyaji, but people generally weren't interested in Inmu back in the 2000s. Most of the blame went to a lack of proper entry points, since the “Karate Club” episode of Babylon Stage 27 wasn't discovered until July 2010, allowing Gachimuchi to take priority since they actually had much more content to work with unlike Inmu.

Then in 2010, Niconico Douga establishes “Rei no Are” and users unearth the “Karate Club” episode, which sparked a huge renaissance of Inmu content with “Yajuu Senpai” as Inmu's new centerpiece. In addition to being a better entry point, people began digging into the massive cache of domestic gay porn, which fed into Inmu's seemingly endless stream of new material to work with.

Babylon Stage 34

Babylon Stage 34: A Midnight Summer's Lewd Dream ~the IMP~ (BABYLON STAGE 34 真夏の夜の淫夢 ~the IMP~) is a gay porn tape that contains four episodes, produced by Coat Corporation, that would release on July 20, 2001. Due to Tadano's scandal, the original tape was discontinued by November 22, 2003 while the first episode is notably cut out of reprints and compilations for obvious reasons.

  1. Yakuza Threat! The Sports Club's Counterattack (極道脅迫!体育部員たちの逆襲) - [T]
    Three young athletes rear-end a Yakuza member's car, so the Yakuza member confiscates the driver's license and subjects one of them to sadistic gay sex. They eventually turn the tables on him.
  2. Model Counterattack! Rape Scouter (モデル反撃!犯されるスカウトマン) - [T]
    A part-time employee is picked up by a scouter for a photo shoot for ¥50,000, but the photographer isn't satisfied and that's when the scouter reveals that he expected him to be able to suck dick.

    This follows two college roommates and one's been filming the other without permission. They both get drunk and the person who was filming gets a sadomasochistic dream while reviewing the footage.
  4. Coma Rape! The Senior Who Became A Beast (昏睡レイプ!野獣と化した先輩) - [T]
    After swimming club, the senior brings a junior home, drugs him with ice tea, and rapes him while he's in a coma. The junior wakes up and they both start revealing their love for each other.

The full tape is about 90 minutes long with the episode timestamps at 1:30, 38:35, 54:04, and 68:02, though most re-uploads eventually get taken down for copyright infringement.

Yajuu Senpai's other works

Yajuu Senpai (野獣先輩, lit. “Beastly Senior”), alternatively known as YJSNPI(Yajuu Senpai) or TDKR(Tadokoro), is an amateur porn actor that worked for Coat Corporation from 1999 to 2002. He ended up becoming the centerpiece for his role in the easy-to-understand “Karate Club” episode, which wasn't discovered until 2010. Rumored to be 24 years old for his casting couch interview, he would likely be approaching his late 40s as of 2023.

  • The Karate Club's Sex Technique (空手部・性の裏技) - [T]
    Third episode of Babylon Stage 27. The club showers and relaxes in a washitsu when the seniors call the junior out for glancing at them, eventually proceeding to strip him.
  • The Fetish Vol. 3 (ザ・フェチ Vol.3 フェチシリーズ初心者編) - [T]

  • Coma Rape! The Senior Who Became A Beast (昏睡レイプ!野獣と化した先輩) - [T]

  • Discovery 6 (DISCOVERY 第六号リアルショック!!青年TYPHOON) - [T]
    The last known interview. For some reason, a scene was cut out from their Discovery 10 compilation. Due to the lack of highlights or lines, this entry is typically forgotten.

Monzetsu Shonen 5

Monzetsu Shonen 5 (悶絶少年 其の伍, lit. “Agony Boys 5”) is a gay porn DVD with four episodes that was produced by Acceed and released on April 8, 2010. The full video is almost four hours long. Unlike the aforementioned works, the use of real porn actors allows for more hardcore fetishes, arguably presenting a return to form as the video is partially shock content.

    A naive country boy gets roped into bondage. He gets hung and whipped, gets a suspended enema, experiences hot wax torture, etc. Through all the pain, he maintains a shameful erection.

Notes

  • In the context of Inmu, “harmful rumors” (風評被害, fūhyō higai), or “reputational damage”, is a term used to describe cases where the community finds something and manages to drag it under their subculture despite it usually having almost zero connection, typically stemming from users attempting to invoke Inmu by pointing out similar expressions, sounds, monotone reading, etc.
  • It is possible to visit, or take a pilgrimage to, real-world locations that are now associated with Inmu.
    • Azuma Sushi (あずま寿し) @ 35.6654°N, 139.6706°E (facing west)
      The street where the rear-ending, from Episode 1 of Babylon Stage 34, takes place. The shop has since closed. Since 2015, it was replaced by the “Nakachan-tei” (中ちゃん亭) izakaya.
    • Yajuu House” (野獣邸, Yajū-tei) @ 35.6657°N, 139.6696°E (facing east)19)
      The north entrance of Coat Corporation's headquarters, where the “こ↑こ↓” scene was shot.20) It has gathered a lot of attention for the August 10th pilgrimages, though it's a residential street and such gatherings are discouraged,21) redirecting the gatherings to Kitazawa 3-chōme Park.
    • Kitazawa 3-chōme Park (北沢三丁目公園) @ 35.6663°N, 139.6706°E (facing south)
      A public park that lacks restrooms, seen in Power Grip 114 and Discovery 4. Recent pilgrimages to the Yajuu House on August 10th end up here, resulting in a fight22) and suicide attempt.23)24)
  • People have tried to uncover Yajuu Senpai's true identity,25) but it's also a moral dilemma since you're not supposed to know the people in amateur porn in the first place.
    • “Lifetime Online Humiliation” (一生ネットの晒し者, Isshō Netto no Sarashi-mono) is a phrase used to describe Yajuu Senpai and other internet-famous personalities. In response, “Lifetime Online Treasure” (一生ネットの宝物, Isshō Netto no Takaramono) emerged as a positive reinterpretation.
  • In the Chinese community, Inmu is rendered as “Zhòngxià Yè zhī Yínmèng” (仲夏夜之淫梦), though “yínmèng” (淫梦, lit. “lewd dream”) may be replaced with “yínmèng” (银梦, lit. “silver dream”) to get past adult wordfilters. Surprisingly, the Inmu culture in China is unusually massive.

1)
The title is a play on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream which was originally given the translation of “Manatsu no Yo no Yume” (真夏の夜の夢). However, modern translations may opt to use “Natsu no Yo no Yume” (夏の夜の夢) as the work doesn't particularly specify which days that it takes place on, giving a vague reference to May Day which is far from Midsummer.
2)
It should also be noted that the kanji “夜” is rendered as “yo” instead of “yoru” here. The voice on the title card is difficult to hear, but it seems to affirm that “yo” is used.

“Tōno's World” (世界のトオノ, Sekai no Toono) is a time-travel theory that integrates the 1986 freestyle song, "I Can't Wait" by Nu Shooz, as it samples a noise that sounds close to his high-pitch scream.

“F.C.O.H.” is a meaningless abbreviation that comes from a mishearing of his “futoi chinpo ga omanko ni haitchau” (ふといちんぽがおまんこにはいっちゃう) line, meaning “a fat cock is entering my 'pussy'.”
