Pretty Illusion is basically an interactive slideshow with options to 'drill down' into certain slides and with the possibility to edit your own personal slideshow.

This Pretty Illusion disc features Minayo Watanabe, a popular Japanese singer of the JPop idol scene and later adult (R-rated) model. Minayo started out as member #29 of the famous Onyanko (Kitten) Club, featured in the Japanese TV show Yuyake Nyan Nyan (Sunset Glow Meow Meow). This show was one of the biggest showcases of the JPop idol scene. After a successful solo singing career she drifted into the adult market before she retired.

Pretty Illusion is an interesting but not very exciting and rather limited demonstration of LaserActive technology. Video switching is seamless and the option to zoom into or pan across slides is unique. Why this interesting technology was wasted on showing a chick in underwear is anybody's guess! Sound is minimal.
