Nozomi Sasaki: Career » Acting
Nozomi Sasaki has regularly appeared on over 10 television programs and over 20 television commercials since 2009. Nozomi Sasaki's first huge hit on the TV scene was a TV commercial for Lotte's new chewing gum product Fit's, where she performed a "silly dance" called the Fit's dance. Fit's became a smash hit, selling over 40 million in its first 5 months in the Japanese gum market where 4 million-per-year is considered large success.
In March 2009, Nozomi Sasaki was chosen as the image character for a special advertising campaign by the Japan Magazine Publishers Association, a governmental publishing trade association run by the Ministry of Education. During the campaign between July 21, 2009 - August 20, 2009, her portrait appeared in 300 different magazines and as 30,000 posters for bookstores and public libraries all over Japan, 100,000 posters hung in trains in the Tokyo metropolitan area and the Kansai area, and 2,009 prepaid cards.
Having made a cameo appearance in the romantic comedy Handsome Suit as well as minor roles in two television serials, Nozomi Sasaki scored a major breakthrough in her budding acting career with the lead role in the 2009 sentimental romance film Tenshi no Koi, where Nozomi Sasaki played a teenage girl in a fragile relationship with an older man played by Shosuke Tanihara. The film became an instant hit and was also distributed in some nearby countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. In 2010, Nozomi Sasaki acted in the television drama Dohyo Girl where she played a model who became the coach of a high school sumo team. This was the first time in her acting career that Nozomi Sasaki took the lead role in a television drama series.
Nozomi Sasaki also made her singing debut in July 2010 with the catch phrase "Heta de Gomenne!" ("Forgive my bad singing!") when she released a single, Kamu to Funyan feat. Astro, which debuted at number one on the Oricon singles chart. At the end of 2010 Nozomi Sasaki released her second single titled Jin Jin Jingle Bell, a cover version of Chisato Moritaka's 1995 hit. Nozomi Sasaki was expected to participate in the NHK Kohaku show, an annual New Year's Eve musical TV show, but when she was asked about it by the press during the commemoration event for Jin Jin Jingle Bell, Nozomi Sasaki stated that she did not wish to appear on it. She stated that she could not sing and was shy, implying she would never perform her songs live in public. As a result, Nozomi Sasaki did not attend the show.
Nozomi Sasaki: Career » Modeling
Nozomi Sasaki began modeling at the age of around 14. She modeled mainly in the collection circuit, and for fashion/cosmetic advertisements. In the latter years of her modeling career, Nozomi Sasaki was a featured model and contributor to the now defunct Pinky magazine. Nozomi Sasaki first appeared on the cover of Pinky in July 2007, along with another cover girl, Emi Suzuki.
One theory suggests that Suzuki was the person who brought Nozomi Sasaki to the commercial modeling field after she discovered Nozomi Sasaki when Nozomi Sasaki was planning to retire from modeling, and it has been noted that Nozomi Sasaki already appeared at the time to be significantly chubbier than she used to be.
After further intentionally gaining weight, Nozomi Sasaki began appearing on the youth-targeted weekly manga magazine Young Jump and several of other magazines as a glamour model (gravure idol) in late 2008. Nozomi Sasaki released her first photobook, "Nozomi", in August of that year.
Nozomi Sasaki made her first landing on the top cover of Young Jump in January 2009. This caused surprises in many fields. Model Coco Kinoshita who was close to Nozomi Sasaki officially commented about this, "that dreadful one who tortured everyone now has extra weight on her chest and whole body, smiling for innocent boys with burning sticks!". Nozomi Sasaki released her first full DVD, Dolly, and two photobooks, Nozomi Sasaki in Tenshi no Koi and Non, in 2009.
In early 2010 Nozomi Sasaki was specially featured by 2.4 million selling manga series Usogui on Young Jump, and released her fourth photobook Prism. Despite her breast size which has been known as one of the smallest in the gravure scene, Nozomi Sasaki became a successful model by the end of 2010 in the field where breast size is regarded as a vital factor.
At that time Nozomi Sasaki also began appearing on the Non-no magazine, a biweekly girl-next-door-orientated fashion magazine that does not usually feature people like her. Though after becoming more of a gravure idol than a professional model, Nozomi Sasaki was heavily featured in a spring fashion collection presented by the magazine and BS-TBS, and soon after that, Nozomi Sasaki landed on the top cover of the magazine. These appearances have been described as like an "invasion", as Nozomi Sasaki has significantly changed the magazine's tone. Some critics have suggested that the magazine has been destroyed by Nozomi Sasaki.

Nozomi Sasaki: Career » In the Media
Since Nozomi Sasaki debuted as a glamour model, she has been known for her doll-like image attributed to her looks and manners, hence her first full-scale DVD's title "Dolly".
Unlike her mentor, Emi Suzuki, who has rejected nearly all the interview requests even after beginning to appear in the general celebrity scene, Nozomi Sasaki has normally granted interviews since 2009 when she began appearing in the general celebrity scene. Nozomi Sasaki often speaks in her native language, the Akita dialect, which people outside of the northern region hardly understand, thus, the press chasing her are often with translators. It has also been known that some reporters have been banned from interviewing her, and they are mainly those who have attempted to ask her questions about her past, specifically, her fashion modeling years.
The topic of her fashion modeling years has occasionally become a matter of public interest, although Nozomi Sasaki has never spoken about it. In April 2010 a photographer mentioned Nozomi Sasaki in an interview, saying he witnessed Nozomi Sasaki's first meeting with Yukina Kinoshita, a commercial model who has been known as a notorious brawler, a former member of a bosozoku gang team in real life, and has become Nozomi Sasaki's co-worker. The photographer apparently, in 2008, witnessed their pre-brawling scene where Yukina Kinoshita picked a fight with Nozomi Sasaki, pouncing on Nozomi Sasaki, but Yukina Kinoshita got away from it after Nozomi Sasaki caught Yukina Kinoshita's arm, staring at her, and Yukina Kinoshita got "seriously freaked out". Kinoshita later commented on this shortly before her retirement, confirming it and describing Nozomi Sasaki as something on a different level from a mere brawler.
In August 2010, Nozomi Sasaki landed on the cover of the anan magazine, with a black dress and a body shape slightly reminiscent of her past as a fashion model. At that time Nozomi Sasaki signed a new endorsement contract with FinePix of Fujifilm and attended its ceremonial press conference, with another black dress designed by her former fan Razor Ramon HG and a body shape fairly reminiscent of her past as a fashion model. Some of the fashion press made mention of these appearances. The September number of the Ray magazine headlined "Nozomi has returned", and associated the black dresses with some of her past nicknames related to the black color such as "Black Surgeon/Black Maiden". Sankei Shimbun, a decent newspaper not a tabloid, also featured this appearance, referring to her as "Nozomi".
In November 2010, Akita Prefecture chosen her as one of the two official PR-Ambassadors, along with Natsuki Kato, with the purpose of creating a better image of the prefecture. The mayor Norihisa Satake officially commented on the selection that he was hoping that Nozomi Sasaki would eradicate Akita's image being snowy and dark, with her image being fine and cheerful.
Nozomi Sasaki has been known for her reticence and spiritless, apathetic attitude seeming lack of emotion on television, but one unusual incident was observed on January 5, 2011 when Nozomi Sasaki was on the live television show Reco Hits, a midnight music show she has regularly appeared on as a host. At one point during Kana Uemura's song about family, "Toire no Kamisama", was introduced, Nozomi Sasaki broke down in tears. This was considered the first time for Nozomi Sasaki to cry on media.
Nozomi Sasaki: Career » Others
Immediately following the firing of the predecessor, Akina Minami, who was said to be unprecedentedly annoying, Nozomi Sasaki was picked as the ringside commentator for K-1. Soon after this, Nozomi Sasaki was also selected by Dream as the ringside commentator. Since then, Nozomi Sasaki has worked for these two combat sport competitions not only as the ringside commentator but also as a spokesperson since April 2009. Nozomi Sasaki immediately established a good reputation. Remy Bonjasky has referred to her as a "good one", "Oh, well I think she's good, she seems too calm, at least way better than that one I saw at the previous World GP". Gago Drago commented "You know, she's uncannily reticent compared to other ringside gals I know, but in a way it's good, you know, especially during a fight!". Buakaw Por. Pramuk commented after K-1 World MAX 2009 World Championship Tournament Final, "Immediately after the bout, that girl gave me a towel with her awesome smile. It killed all of my pain!". In Dream, many fighters, including Joachim Hansen, JZ Calvan, Zelg Galešić, Choi Hong-man, Paulo Filho, James Thompson, Bibiano Fernandes, Kultar Gill, Sergei Kharitonov and Josh Barnett, have positively made highly-extolling comments about the new face, resulting in being described as gullible cherry boys by Rin Takanashi on Twitter. Only a few criticisms have been levelled at her, notably, Badr Hari has stated that he thinks the predecessor and the heavyweight division's long-term commentator Norika Fujiwara were better because he finds her "somehow ominous".
