The junior idol industry is a highly contentious one in Japan. There exists no clear set of guidelines regarding the age at which an individual becomes a junior idol: Yumi Adachi , for instance, started her modeling career at age two and many other idols have starred in image DVDs at the ages of three, four and five. The trend of junior idols dates back to the mids, a period marked by significant increase in the number of child models and works involving individuals in that age range. Generally, this means gravure , or "cheesecake", fully clothed shots; but, junior idols can, and some do, eventually enter the AV industry. Concerning the contents of the titles put on sale, these include, in general terms, pictures or footage of the idols trying out a variety of outfits, such as school uniforms , bathing suits, gym clothes, yukata or even maid, police and anime-inspired costumes. Many Japanese criticise such depictions of underaged girls, including some Japanese politicians.
