Kana is a 7-year veteran who started out in ARSION & AtoZ in 2004, but became a freelancer in 2007. These days she primarily competes in NEO, where she mainly competes in tag team matches and has worked her way into title contention in the tag ranks with a couple of different partners. She finally broke through in October 2009, winning her first career title-the NEO Tag Team Championship with Nanae Takahashi. She also has been making frequent appearances lately in WAVE. She employs a bit of a shootfight style in the ring, employing stiff-looking kicks that hit as hard as they sound. Her style has made her both loved and hated among internet fans, with the fire really being lit when, in a WAVE match in early 2010, she kicked WAVE star Shu Shibutani in the face during a match hard enough to put Shibutani out of action for a couple months, forcing Shibutani to miss her close friend Fuka’s final event.
An interesting side note about her is that her day job is a freelance graphics designer, and Microsoft is one of her biggest clients so many of her outfits are video game-inspired and she’s even sponsored by Microsoft and others. Way cool…although why the Xbox 360 logo is on her butt is beyond me…but it looks good on her. She also sometimes sports other prominent logos on her way-cool outfits, namely sometimes sporting an EA logo patch on one of her shoulders. Her outfits as well as her looks and hard-hitting style has made her quite popular among internet fans. She formed a new faction/partnership with Mio & Io Shirai in fall 2010. Known as “Triple Tails”, they appear together in various joshi promotions and have produced a couple events together.
Kana was formerly affiliated with Passion Red, but left the group during the February 14, 2010 NEO event following an argument and subsequent altercation with Nanae Takahashi. She’s now back to being a freelancer. She produced her first wrestling event, KANA PRO, on 4/29/2010. Today she primarily competes in NEO & WAVE but has also made appearances in other promotions, most notably Osaka Pro. She’s also shown up at some of the Fukumen Mania events.
In September 2011 Kana will produce a 3rd “Triple Tails” independent event with the Shirai sisters. In the meantime she’s become close to a regular in SMASH, making frequent appearances at events and pre-event press conferences and stirring up some feuds with the likes of Syuri & Lin ‘Bitch” Byron. And also making a very sexy businesswoman. Yeah, she’s quite sexy too.
