Yamada Yu


Yamada Yu is another gorgeous model from the pages of the CamCam fashion magazine.
The same magazine that spawned Ebihara Yuri and Oshigiri Moe.
She’s also recently launched a singing career, unfortunately most of the music she has released is fairly terrible,
which is a shame because she can really sing.
