Mana Sakura (紗倉まな Sakura Mana?, born March 23, 1993) is a Japanese AV idol and gravure model.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Tokyo, Mana Sakura studied at the Department of Public Works, then enrolled at College of Technology.[1] She debuted as a mainstream model at 18 in the gravure video 18 Years Old Mana Sakura Pretty Moe Factory, published in November 2011.[2]

In February 2012, Sakura entered the AV industry with the video AV Debut Mana released by the manufacturer Soft On Demand.[3][4] Users at Twitter recognized her as a student at the Technical College and the subsequent publicity[5] resulted in her debut video ranking first in DVD sales for that month at the major Japanese distributor, the DMM Corporation.[6]

In 2013 she was named Best New Actress at the Adult Broadcasting Awards[7][8] and at the same ceremony she also won the FLASH Award.[7] Also in 2013 she appeared in the mainstream movie Goddotan: Kisu gaman senshuken the Movie (ゴッドタン キス我慢選手権 THE MOVIE?), a film adaptation of the popular Japanese late night TV variety show Goddotan.[9]

In 2014 she was voted into second place in the election for a character in the latest Yakuza video game.[10] She was a regular cast member in the second season of the Tokyo Broadcasting System's TV drama Ushijima the Loan Shark broadcast from January to March 2014.[11] In the Fall of 2014, Sakura was enlisted to write a column for Gazoo.com, a promotional portal for Toyota. A spokesman said that the company considered her background and interest in driving "to be suitable for their needs."[12] She also appeared in a second mainstream movie in 2014, the action science fiction film Danger Dolls released in September 2014.[13]

She was once again a winner at the 2015 Adult Broadcasting Awards, this time taking the Best Actress Award and a second FLASH Award.[5][14]
