TOKYO (TR) – Adult video actress Kirara Asuka captivated a press corps on Sunday by not outright denying the existence of a relationship with pitcher Yu Darvish during an event held in Akihabara for the release of the film “Futari Ecchi the Movie 2 — Second Kiss,” reports Yukan Fuji (Feb. 6).
Asuka, 23, was linked to the Texas Rangers 25-year-old right-handed hurler in an article published in Shukan Jitsuwa (Feb. 16). The article refers to an ongoing dialog between the two on Twitter (Yu Darvish, Kirara Asuka).
“What can I say?” said the AV actress, who appears with co-star Yuri Morishita in the film, a love story based on the manga “Manga Sutra — Futari H” by Aki Katsu.
Darvish, the Japanese pitcher who recently signed a six-year, $60 million deal with the Rangers, and his actress wife, Saeko, finalized their divorce agreement in January.
Shukan Post (Feb. 17) ties the pitcher to popular professional golfer Miho Koga, who retired last year.
When asked if she would like to partake in a sexual encounter with Darvish — in a direct reference to futari ecchi in the title of the film — Asuka said, while giggling, “Not a chance.”
