Life and career
Kokoro was born August 30, 1982 in the city of Miyako, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. She was seeking employment at the time that she was recruited for work in the AV industry. An AV scout found her in the audience of a TV gameshow. Her stage name was given to her by Makoto Kitano. Her AV debut was in the December, 2001 release Confusion. Made for the Alice Japan label, and directed by Kazuhito Kuramoto, the video told the story of a couple, both of whom aspire to be actors. Amano's character has been secretly appearing in adult videos, and is afraid that her boyfriend will find out.
Critics have often pointed out the documentary-inspired format of many Japanese AVs, which often begin with a lengthy interview with the main actress of the video. Amano's second video for Alice Japan makes use of this format, for which her Iwate accent in the interview was a selling-point. The video's further documentary-like scenarios included outdoor sex in the countryside, and rape scenes. Amano's February 2002 AV for Alice Japan, Sealed Love, returned to the fictional narrative format of her first work. In this video, again directed by Kuramoto, she plays an employee of an IT company who has fallen in love with the best friend of her boyfriend. Some of Kokoro's later videos for Alice Japan continued in the purely fictional narrative format. In My Lovely Nurse Sister she plays the role of a nurse who has sex with doctors, and her brother-in-law who is a patient at the hospital where she works. Her July 2002 DVD for VIP, Kokoro Amano [R], is a game in which Kokoro plays the viewer's younger sister. Different endings result depending on selections made during the watching of the story.
Kokoro's career took the path of the AV idol who debuts as an inexperienced "new face," and whose sexual performances become progressively more outlandish. Regarding this type of AV career, Kjell Fornander says, "Viewers are invited to follow, from appearance to appearance, her sexual initiation, dawning self-awareness and gradual acceptance of her inner, dark depths." Erotic Mind, her next AV for Alice Japan, had Kokoro making her first steps into the more adventurous themes that her later videos would explore. This video includes scenes of voyeurism, sex in public restrooms, vibrators and a threesome.
Her July 2002 video for Cosmos Plan was her wildest venture yet, including sex with four men at once, S&M and saliva-swallowing. Later in 2002 she signed exclusive agreement with studio Soft On Demand and the first movie that came from this relationship was the popular 24 Hours of Bukkake Anytime and Anywhere. The ideas that made this movie interesting were:
- Kokoro agrees to live 24 hours in an apartment designated by the studio, starting at 1:00PM.
- Apartment next door is inhabited by a group of about 20 men who can see Kokoro's activity realtime through a set of seven fixed CCD cameras installed in her apartment.
- Whenever they want (even at night) they can enter Kokoro's apartment and ejaculate on any part of her body (Bukkake), but they cannot touch her or talk to her. If any indication is required, they have to express it with gestures.
