Life and career[edit]

K*WEST, along with several other directors, including Alala Kurosawa, [Jo]Style and KINGDOM, got his start at the Waap Entertainment AV studio.[2][3] During his tenure at Waap, he has directed over 125 DVDs[4] going back to at least October 2002 with the video Ass Pet Girl in the Class (クラスで人気の尻ペット 森町ここみ?).[5] Many of his videos for Waap have been on the company's Cobra label.[6] K*WEST has also directed for other AV studios, including Dogma[7] and occasionally Moodyz[8]

In 2006, K*WEST was one of 11 directors invited to compete in the second Dogma D-1 Climax Awards. The resulting videos were released by Dogma on September 16, 2006. His entry for the contest was Ad Lib Triple Live (アドリブ痴女トリプルライブ!!!?) (labeled D1-201) starring Sarina, Riri Kōda & Aira.[9][10] K*WEST was once again selected for the Dogma D-1 Climax Awards contest in 2007 with 13 other directors. His entry for the 2007 competition, released on September 15, 2007, was Sadistic Labyrinth (陵辱の迷宮 黒人・小便・ドロ責めレイプ 松野ゆい?)
