Azusa Itagaki (板垣あずさ Itagaki Azusa?) is a Japanese gravure model and AV idol.

Life and career[edit]

Itagaki was born on November 23, 1988 in Niigata, Japan. She debuted as a finalist in the 2004 All Japan High School Girl Uniform Collection System gravure contest, also known as Seikore (制コレ). In 2005, she debuted in a swimsuit gravure video, Cotton Candy, produced by Line Communications and filmed in Bali.[2]

In August 2007, she opened her official blog, 3 Minutes Cooking Azusa (あずさの3分クッキング Azusa no 3-fun kukkingu?), and, in September 2007, she announced her switch from gravure modeling to AV, signing an exclusive contract with the label Soft On Demand (SOD).[3] Her debut movie for SOD, Entertainer Azusa Itagaki Debut, was released in November 2007.[4][5] Despite her late start, Itagaki was one of the most popular AV actresses for the year 2007, ranking at #6 in the list of 100 best selling actresses at the video retailer DMM (part of the Hokuto Corporation).[6] She was listed in the #10 spot at DMM for 2008,[7] and, after a year at SOD, columnist Kemuta Ōtsubo considered her to be the mainstay of the company.[8] In 2009, she ranked at #70 on the DMM list,[9] and she was nominated for the Best Actress Award at the 2009 Adult Broadcasting Awards.[10]

Also in 2009, Itagaki starred in the erotic suspense V-Cinema release Chateau - Confinement (シャトー -監禁- Shatō - Kankin?).[11]

In 2010, Itagaki retired from AV. Her final work, Entertainer Azusa Itagaki retirement (芸能人 板垣あずさ 引退 Geinōjin Itagaki Azusa intai?), was released by Soft On Demand on 4 March 2010. After her retirement, she worked in a cabaret club in Tokyo and she appeared at several public events.[12] She came back into the adult industry in December 2012.[12]
