TOKYO (TR) – It was assuredly the understatement of the night: “I did it!”

Indeed. More than once, in fact.

On Tuesday evening at a hotel ballroom in Shinagawa, Haruki Sato was crowned Best Actress at the Sky PerfecTV! Adult Broadcasting Awards.

“I will continue to go at my own pace,” continued Sato, who also claimed the Cyzo media award. “Please continue to support me.”

The annual event, in its ninth year, is a mix of awards, whose winners were determined by online votes from fans, and short performances showcasing the top female stars appearing on the roughly 10,000 adult video (AV) programs broadcast last year on the more than 20 adult channels on the Sky PerfecTV! satellite network.

Like Sato, Mana Sakura walked away with two awards, claiming a media prize (Flash) and Best New Actress.

“I knew I was going to cry whether I won or not,” said Sakura, who made her debut in 2012 while enrolled as a nursing student at Kyoto University. “Now that I have won I am beyond crying; I am so happy.”

Other media awards handed out came from Spa! (Yui Fujishima), Tokyo Sports (Hibiki Otsuki) and Yukan Fuji (Shiori Kamisaki).

The jukujo genre of AV is represented each year through the Best Mature Actress award. Akari Hoshino was surprised to learn that she qualified, much less that she was voted the genre’s top performer.

“I am 27,” said Hoshino. “I didn’t know if I am ‘mature’ enough to win this award. I will continue to do my best for the next 50 or 60 years.”

Representing the Playboy channel was Akiho Yoshizawa, whose role as a nymphomaniac garnered her the Best Picture title.

“I was very nervous up until now, but when I heard (my name) the tension was relieved,” said Yoshizawa. “I would like to share the joy of this award with the team, the director and staff members.”
