Maria Ozawa "Young Nude Star"
Maria Ozawa is hardly an international household name, but her popularity as an erotic video star has grown rapidly since she made her debut in adult videos in 2005, at the age of 19. After joining the light hardcore video company known as S1, she was featured in the top-selling Japanese triple-X video of the year. That earned Miyabi and her Dream Collection compilation co-stars the 2006 AV Open title, a notch on Ozawa's belt, career-wise, but hardly a prestigious prize that lent her any mainstream acclaim.Google Trends reported that online searches for Ozawa have increased significantly throughout 2007. While she has devoted admirers in every corner of the globe, new fan sites based in Japan and the U.S., in particular, keep appearing on a regular basis. Besides those two countries, she's also very popular in Indonesia and the Philippines. In addition to her appearances in many best-selling AVs, she has done several "gravure" or glamour photo shoots and videos. Her mainstream profile gained a few points through her participation in the music video for "Summer Time in the D.S.C." by Yokohama rappers DS455 in 2006, as well as a visit to Japanese MTV with hip-hop star SEAMO.
