The “L/R15” project to make two sex comedies with an R15 classification, given to films judged inappropriate for viewers under the age 15, brings together the talents of Hideo Jojo, an award-winning specialist in adult films, and Rikiya Imaizumi, a maker of light dramas about the romantic troubles of young urbanites.
