Asami Jō (城 麻美 Jō Asami can also read Zyou Mami?, born September 15, 1975) is a Japanese AV Idol from Tokyo. Tokusatsu fans also know her as the villain Shibolena in the Super Sentai series Denji Sentai Megaranger.

Life and career[edit]

Jō was born in Tokyo and was a TV commercial model before starting a career in pornography.[2] While many Japanese AVs involve some form of documentary style,[3] Asami Jō's videos are mainly in the fictional style of the pink film and early AV.[4]

She debuted with the Alice Japan label in October 1995.[5] Her February 1996 release for the same label, Love Potion, told the story of a woman who supports her boyfriend financially while he is studying to become a lawyer. She employs sex as a means to make cosmetic sales.[6] Thrilling Club: A Scandalous Night With You (April 1996), had Jō as a married woman who meets an old classmate, with whom she and her husband engage in a menage-a-trois.[7]

In The Beautiful Slave (May 1996), she played the role of a young woman who is unhappy with the marriage her parents have arranged for her.[8] Obscene Model (June 1996) had Jō in the role of a woman who acts like a cat in heat and when she is taken to a veterinarian engages in wild sex with him.[9]

In Top Secret Is Full Nude, released in July 1996, she played a woman who is raped by a man who is later hired by her husband, for whose company she also works.[10] Almost Broken was an organized crime melodrama with Jō escaping from a gang and becoming involved in telephone sex. Like the previously-described videos, this August 1996 release was an Alice Japan production.[11]

Asami Jō later appeared in such mainstream TV series as Weatherwoman 2 (1996) and Denji Sentai Megaranger (1997) [1] She became a TV commentator,[2] and from 1995-1998 she was a regular on the nighttime TV show Gilgamesh Night.[12]
