Carlos Amano is a joshi veteran who has been active for over 15 years. She has been a freelancer since 2005 although her primary affiliation is now with OZ Academy. Over the last few years she has competed primarily under the name Carlos Amano instead of her real name, which may lead some to believe she’s actually a male but she’s a female using a man’s name. She is very skilled in submissions. She is a former OZ Academy Openweight Champion and was half of the inaugural OZ Academy Tag Team Champions. She also holds the current record for longest title reigns in OZ Academy, reigning for 363 days as Openweight Champion and for nearly 400 days as Tag Team Champion. She has feuded with Mayumi Ozaki frequently in OZ Academy in an ongoing war for control of the promotion.
In December 2009 Amano became the latest veteran to mark her 15th anniversary as an active wrestler. She celebrated by winning the OZ Academy Openweight Championship for the second time, becoming only the second wrestler to accomplish that feat to date with a win over then-champion Manami Toyota.
