Did you ever wish those cute anime girls were actually real? It turns out they actually can be. Well, sort of… Japanese model Ana Amemiya has become somewhat famous in her country for always wearing an anime mask on her head, whether she’s at photo shoots or on stage. We’re way beyond cosplay here, people.
According to RocketNews24, the 22-year-old half-human, half-anime model made her debut in 2010, as a gravure idol (Japanese glamour idol that is generally more provocative than regular models, though not to the point of posing nude). She was signed by Excel Human Agency, released her first DVD in December 2010, and even had her own daikmakura pillow cover. What sets Anna Amemiya apart from any other model in the world is her signature anime head. She basically has the head of a smiling anime girl and the body of a real woman, which apparently (for some strange reason) appeals to some Japanese men. It’s important to note that Anna never takes off her mask, so nobody knows what she really looks like.
After a year of silence, Anna Amemiya has updated her personal blog, announcing she will be performing in a theatrical adaptation of popular Japanese mobile game “Venus Fantasista“, about a group of beautiful girls who form a soccer team. Since the characters in the game are all anime, who better to play one of them than a model with an anime head on full time. Makes perfect sense.
So what do you think about miss Anna Amemiya, hot or just creepy? Please don’t say hot…
