Ayaka Komatsu (小松 彩夏, Komatsu Ayaka) is a Japanese model/actress. She was born on July 23, 1986 in Ichinoseki, Iwate Prefecture.

Modeling career[edit]

Her modeling agency is Amuse inc. She was a regular model of the now defunct Candy[1] magazine. She also appeared in the Winter 2002-2003 "Angel Blue" fashion catalog and was on the cover of the manga Young Sunday dated April 7, 2005.

She was a member of the 2004 edition of the Japanese modeling quartet named Nittelligenic, an idol group sponsored by Nippon TV.[2] Each 'generation' lasts for one year and during that year they do a lot of features on NTV in addition to idol DVDs, special pictorials, and other promo gigs. Prior to this, she did a few swimsuit layouts and continues to do them for magazines such as Sabra.

She has released six photobooks, and ten idol DVDs. In order of release date, the photobook titles are: Ayaka no Natsu, Nicchoku, Summer Date, Moon Doll, Cheeeeeez!♥, and Ayaka. The DVDs are named, in order of release date, Figure A, Layer Game/Megami no Chu, Masaka, Moon Doll, 書を捨てよ、水着になろう! ("Let's throw away books, and change into swimwear!"), Dream Note, and Dream Note II, X, Ayakafull, and Hawaaaaaaaaaaii.

Acting career[edit]

She has acted in the following movies: "Odoru Daisousasen THE MOVIE 2" (her role in this film was relatively minor; she gets attacked by a vampire), "koibumi", "Master of Thunder", "A Perfect Day for Love Letters", "Drift" and "Drift 2" (later released as "Drift Deluxe Edition"), and "Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru" (which opened in Japan on January 20, 2007, and later in Europe under the English title "My Sister, My Love"). The Italian translation lists a movie named "Suspect X" that was released in 2008. She announced that she will be in Infection Islands (or "Pandemic") that was released in January 2009.

She also appeared in the reality show "Idol Michi" and made a commercial for Takara, "Popura 2," as well as an award-winning commercial for the soft drink Fanta. In 2008, she made a commercial for Circle K in which she bites into four sandwiches.

Arguably, her best known job was as Minako Aino/Sailor V/Sailor Venus in the series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.

Since PGSM wrapped up, Ayaka was in the cast of a TV show called Dandori Musume ("Appointment Girls"). Her role in Dandori Musume is more comic than tragic, in contrast to her PGSM role. Her latest TV shows are dramas called Girl's Life and "Bambino". CD Japan lists a show called Uranaishi Tenjin ("Fortune Teller's Display") with her in the cast. In 2008 she appeared in Average[3] and in episode 7 of Aren't You a Criminal?.[4]

In October 2007, she acted in a play called "Unlucky Days". In July 2008, she acted in a play called "Every Little Thing".

She had a recurring role in the summer Fuji TV drama Buzzer Beat, reuniting with her former Sailor Moon cast member Keiko Kitagawa, who had the lead female role as well as with Yamashita Tomohisa as Ayaka made a cameo appearance on his previous drama Kurosagi.

In 2012 she appeared in Idol Insiders.
