Introduction to the two Supermodels Manami Marutaka and Maaya Morinaga

The Japanese modeling or gravure model industry seems to show fresh, new talent almost like they bring fruit to the supermarkets. In this next article, we take a look at the life and careers of two supermodels. They are Manami Marutaka and Maaya Morinaga. Those of you that enjoyed he article about Saori Yamamoto and Natsume Sano, you will especially like this one.

Manami Marutaka: her career

Manami Marutaka is a celebrity that is very much a part of the Japanese gravure modeling scene. She is seen during photo shoots with Momoko Tani. She also has done photo shoots with Maaya Morinaga. None of these ladies are probably popular enough for most fans to recognize and I didn’t even know about them until a few days ago. Manami was born on June 12, 1990 in Tokyo Japan. She has the blood type of O. And her shoe size is listed at 24 centimeters. Manami had released a calendar back in 2012. She is under contract with Avex Management. In 2009, she won the TOP of Gravure modeling contest. Prior to this in the year 2008, she advanced to what is called the Avex second examination during the Avex World Audition. In addition to her modeling activities, Manami has also been acting. She has appeared in several TV dramas. A few of these include Taxmen (Episode 9 in 2010), Misaki Number One! (2011), Golden Monday, and most recently Detective Anonymous also in 2012. She has also appeared in commercials for Takara Leben and Gilco Dairy.

Manami Marutaka: her personal life and interests other than modeling

She has an 11 year-old sister and a brother that is only three years old. Her parents are the owner of a coffee shop and cafe but Manami does not like to drink coffee. She is skilled at jump rope exercises, and doing the hula hoop. She likes to dance and play tennis in her spare time. And Manami has also done photo shoots for the very famous Sabra Magazine. Note: the ages given of her siblings were that number when I first found out about Manami back in 2012.

About Japanese Swimsuit Model Maaya Morinaga

There is not much information about Maaya Morinaga but she is primarily a swimsuit model. Maaya Morinaga is described as having E Cup breasts. I’m not sure what they mean by this but nonetheless, she received the Best Newcomer Award at the 2009 ZakZak Japan Gravure Idol. Maaya was born on August 2, 1991 in Tokyo. On August 24, 2012, she released a new DVD titled “My Pure.” She also has done some limited acting. In 2011, she starred in Yarisugi konpanion to atashi monogatari.” I know that it is a really long movie title. It is really long! And it will be tough for speakers of English to pronounce this one. In 2012, she starred in the movie “Dead Sushi.” Maaya is currently under contract with Office Walker. So having discussed the lives and careers of these two supermodels, who is more beautiful?
