Whatever Happened to Chris Aoki?
(Kekko Kamen Unmasked)

Japanese model/actress Chris Aoki (Please don't confuse with the male golfer of the same name.) was the first to play the part of manga superheroine Kekko Kamen in the early 90s. She was also the one who generated the most interest from Asian Sirens readers when I shared this entry with them. According to what little info I've been able to dig up on her, the 163 cm, 34-23-33 Miss Aoki was born on March 25, 1968 in Tokyo and was a 1990 Playboy Playmate in the now defunct Japanese edition of the magazine.

It seems that Chris appeared in a least one other film besides the Kekko Kamen ones she starred in, but hasn't been active in show biz or modeling since that time. All of the photos of her in this entry are from a photo book entitled Message, published in 1992 that I recently obtained from a Japanese bookseller.

If anyone can dig up any other credible information on her and/or what she may be doing these days, just shy of her 41st birthday, please comment and let me know. Until then, Chris will just have to reside in the "Whatever Happened to..?" file.

  1. Never heard of her but I see she is the no.1 popular post here so I guess she must have many fans that remember her?

    1. Actually, there are many Kekko Kamen fans that were led to this post because of the title. Of course, this must be a pretty nice gem for them because there aren't many photos on the net of Miss Aoki (the actress who played Kekko in the first three films) without the mask.

  2. She's now 44. Learn anything more about her since you wrote this?

    1. Nothing new since I posted this. Then again, I haven't done much digging on her. I'd say it's a safe bet she's now got her own family and is living a domestic life, like Chieko Shiratori probably is.
