Kaoru Kuroki is a Japanese former adult video (AV) performer and a multi-media personality whose role as a media counselor expressing outspoken views on sex and society have drawn comparisons to La Cicciolina and Dr. Ruth. At the height of her popularity, Kuroki's AVs were averaging 17, 000 sales a piece, a huge amount by industry standards, exceeding a million dollars. According to Rosemary Iwamura, "Kaoru changed the image of AV girls; she didn't seem to be making videos because of a lack of options but rather as an informed choice."For bringing the AV industry to the attention of mainstream media in Japan, as well as her polite but frank outspokenness on subjects like sex and censorship, Kjell Fornander calls her "the first high-profile AV actress."She permanently changed the way that the AV industry and AV actresses were viewed by the general public in Japan.

Kaoru Mori is a Japanese manga artist from Tokyo. She is the creator of the successful manga series Emma, A Bride's Story and Shirley. Many of her works are centred on female characters in the 19th century, such as a maid in Victorian Britain and a bride in Turkic Central Asia. She also writes dōjinshi under the penname Fumio Agata.

Mori is not only famous for her storytelling and art, she is also famous for her unflattering self-portraits, usually an outline for a body, a head with wild hair, and her hand-drawn highly decorative costumes within her works. She is also shy of making public appearances or giving interviews in person.
