Anna Iriyama (入山 杏奈, Iriyama Anna, born December 3, 1995 in Chiba Prefecture) is a Japanese singer and a member of the Japanese idol group AKB48. She is a member of Team A.[1] With Rina Kawaei and Rena Katō, she is also a member of the unit Anrire, which on October 17, 2012 released a single titled "Ikujinashi Masquerade" together with Rino Sashihara.[2] It charted at number one in the Japanese Oricon weekly singles chart.[3]



Anna Iriyama started her career in the entertainment industry when in March 2010 she passed the 10th generation audition for the trainee section of the girl group AKB48. She debuted with AKB48 in June of the same year when she started performing in the AKB48 Theater.[4]

She participated in that year's AKB48 general elections, but did not rank.[4] In July 2011, she was promoted to AKB48's Team 4, thus becoming a full member of AKB48.[4]

On December 17, 2011, Iriyama and two other AKB48 members, Ami Maeda and Rena Katō, held a large autograph-signing event in Hong Kong. The venue was packed with 6,000 people.[5]


In 2012, on the AKB48 single "Manatsu no Sounds Good!", Iriyama made her first senbatsu appearance (meaning that she was selected to participate on the A-side of an AKB48 single for the first time). Despite that, she again did not rank in the AKB48 general elections for the year.[4]

In September, together with Rina Kawaei and Rena Kato, she became a member of an AKB48 subgroup named Anrire.[4]


In April 2013, Iriyama won a TV show called Mecha Ike AKB Kimatsu Test.[4] In the AKB48 election held in the same year, she ranked in the 30th place.[4]


In 2014, Iriyama played her first starring (main cast) TV drama role, in the series Kekkon Sasete Kudasai!! Episode 3 "Ai no Tomato" scheduled to broadcast from May 26 to 30.[4]

In April, it was reported that Iriyama would soon make her debut in cinema, with the film Ao Oni. The movie is based on the horror game of the same name and will be released nationwide in Japan on July 5.[6][7][8]

In AKB48's general elections for 2014, she placed 77th place on the first day,[4] and eventually finished 20th overall, with 34,002 votes.[9]


On May 25, 2014, during an event held at the Iwate Industry Culture & Convention Center in Takizawa, Iwate, she, along with AKB48 member Rina Kawaei and a staff member were attacked by a 24-year-old man wielding a handsaw. She and Kawaei suffered bone fractures and lacerations to their hands (Iriyama's right little finger and Kawaei's right thumb were fractured and cut, Iriyama also suffered cuts to her head) and were taken to hospital for surgery. The event, as well as all other group activities on that day, were halted.[4][10][11][12][13][14][15][16]




She released her first solo photobook on March 22, 2017.[17]
