Marica Hase (Japanese: まりか, Hepburn: Hase Marica), also known as Marika (まりか, 茉莉香, Marika), is a Japanese porn actress, and Penthouse Pet.[3] Starting her career as an erotic model in 2007, Hase began performing in adult videos in 2009 before moving to the United States in 2012. She appeared in more than 500 adult films and is one of the very few Japanese AV stars that have switched over to the American AV industry.[4][5][6]


Hase was born on September 26, 1981[1] in Tokyo, Japan.[2] She began her career as an erotic model, appearing in several nude DVDs, collaborating with other performers like Tanuki Roku and Go Arisue. During these days, she already contacted major AV studios and teased of a potential adult film debut.[7] As a gravure model, she was using the name Marika Hase (まりか, Hase Marica) and was renamed Marika (まりか, Marika) when she made her AV debut, but she eventually returned to using her last name, Hase.[8] In September 2009, she won the sponsored award "Tinkle"(てぃんくる賞) at "1st SOD star Cinderella audition."[9] and made her AV debut in December 2009, Actual Gravure Idol x AV Debut for the SOD create Studio.

She left SOD in May 2010 and moved to Japan Home Video's EROTICA series. She also started to perform with other AV companies like Moodyz and Cross. On June 17, 2011, she reported on her blog that she passed as the second member of the idol unit OFA21.[10] In December 2011, she appeared in an edition of Nikkan Sports. During her Japanese AV career she appeared in more than 200 adult films (including omnibus and a re-edited versions) from various studios.[11]

On March 31, 2012, she announced on her blog that she would continue her career in the United States.[12][13] In January 2013, she was chosen as the Penthouse Pet of the Month.[14] While Hase attempted to maintain a crossover career by performing in both Japanese and American adult films, by 2014 she started to fully transition into the American scene performing with companies such as Brazzers, Evil Angel, and Wicked Pictures. As of 2019, Hase appeared in more than 300 Western porn scenes and continues to be an active performer.[4] In October, 2019 she appeared as the cover girl in the monthly issue of Hustler.[15]

Personal life[edit]

In February 2019, Hase revealed that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2018. She set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise US$50,000 to undergo a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction at the City of Hope National Medical Center in Los Angeles County, California. The campaign also covered all related expenses, as she was out of work for four months. Hase said she donated any leftover funds to the medical center.[16][17]
