Kimiko Matsuzaka (松坂 季実子 Matsuzaka Kimiko) is a Japanese AV idol who was prominent during the late-1980s and early-1990s noted for her large natural breasts. An authority on the AV industry points to Matsuzaka's career as the beginning of the "Big Bust Boom" in Japan.
Life and career
Born in Kobe either February 10, or October 21, 1969, Kimiko Matsuzaka was attending Otsuma Women's University when she was scouted by AV director Toru Muranishi. She made her debut with Diamond Visual (ダイヤモンド映像 Diayamondo Eizō) in 1989. Her stage name was taken from a combination of "Matsuzaka", from actress Keiko Matsuzaka (松坂慶子), and "Kimiko" from the actress Kimiko Ikegami (池上季実子). Her bust size was advertised as 110.7 centimeters (43½ inches), but this was a publicity gimmick employing a pun on "ii onna" or "good woman" (110 pronounced "ii o", and "7" resembling the Katakana "ナ" – "na"). According to Motohashi Nobuhiro (本橋信宏), her bust size was actually in the upper 90s.
Though large natural breasts had been admired in Japanese erotic cinema since at least the 1950s, with the popularity of actress Maeda Michiko, the success of Matsuzaka, and other naturally large-breasted performers of this time, such as Reiko Kato (かとうれいこ) led the establishment of the Big Bust genre as part of the Japanese AV industry.
Originally scheduled for only one video, her debut video, Dekkaino, Mekke! (でっか～いの、めっけ!) became a huge hit for the Diamond Visual company, selling several thousand copies shortly after its release on February 1, 1989. Capitalizing on this success, Diamond Visual named the first day of the month "Large Breast Day" ("巨乳の日" Kyonyu no Hi), and released a Kimiko Matsuzaka video on the first day of each month for nearly two years. Noriyuki Adachi singles out Matsuzaka's second AV, 1107 Millimeter Impression, as the one that set the "Big Bust Boom" (巨乳ブーム "Kyonyu Boom") "on fire." The storyline of her fifth video, "Daughter!" (released June 1, 1989), had her playing the role of a news reporter. From this point on, she would be cast in a different profession with each appearance. In her following videos she would play a doctor, an attorney, a journalist, a professional golfer, and even a high government official, among other occupations.
In late-1989 and mid-1990, she appeared with Kaoru Kuroki in director Toru Muranishi's series of instructional sex videos demonstrating sexual techniques and the use of sexual toys while Kuroki provided the lecture/commentary. By now known internationally as a "queen of pornos", in an interview with Associated Press in mid-1990, it was reported that Matsuzaka made over five times the average salary for a woman her age. Matsuzaka said that she was happy with her career and commented, "I see myself as a success story."
Beyond her high-profile AV career, Matsuzaka had by now become a mainstream celebrity. She was one of the voice actresses for two volumes of an adult science-fiction anime video Demon Beast Invasion (妖獣教室), released May 25 and July 27, 1990 by Daiei Film through its "dez" label, and was very active appearing in photo books and weekly magazines, having regular appearances in Popular Weekly (週刊大衆) and Tokyo Sports Newspaper (). With actor/comedian LaSalle Ishii, she recorded the musical vocal duet Soresore dousuruno? (ソレソレどうするの?), which was released on November 25, 1990. Pacific Stars and Stripes reported that Matsuzaka had made several appearances in prime-time television dramas, and was a talkshow regular. She was also a regular on television variety shows such as All Night Fuji (オールナイトフジ).
Matsuzaka made her last AV, Sexual Game, in October 1990. AV director Toru Muranishi called her departure from the industry one of the worst news items affecting the AV industry in 1990. A year and eight months after her debut, she had starred in 21 AVs, helping to build Muranishi's company, Diamond Visual, into the largest AV company in Japan. Within a year after Matsuzaka's departure, Diamond Image would declare bankruptcy. Matsuzaka continued working with Muranishi after leaving Diamond Visual, co-starring with Kaoru Kuroki in the December 1990 pink film Daikyonyuu: Noshikakaru (大巨乳 のしかかる), and performing in a solo vehicle, Daikyonyuu: Kaikan Shibori (大巨乳 快感絞り), released in March 1991.
After retirement from AV appearances, she appeared with Kaoru Kuroki at the Akasaka club, "Mirukuhooru" ("Milk Hall"). She ceased all public appearances in the spring of 1991, citing personal problems. It was later reported that she had taken up work as a commuting office lady.
