HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Japanese adult star and Penthouse Pet Marica Hase is excited to announce her return to the industry in July, after taking time off to receive cancer treatment.
Hase, who has been recovering and documenting her cancer journey on her YouTube Channel, is kicking off her return with an appearance at Anime Expo 2019.
On Friday, July 5, Marica will be appearing at the Downtown Los Angeles expo, and signing at the booth set up by Asian streetwear company Nandesuka.
Hase and her friends at Nandesuka have collaborated on special Anime Expo “Fuck Cancer” t-shirts and bags. The iconic Japanese glamour girl and porn star will be selling this limited edtion merch and 8x10s, and she will be available for fan photos. All the money raised will be donated to the City of Hope, who has helped her with her cancer surgery and aftercare.
“I’m so excited to be back and appearing at the Nandesuka’s Anime Expo booth,” said Hase. “Designing my ‘Fuck Cancer’ tees and bags with them has been amazing and I can’t wait to debut them. I’m so appreciative of everything the City of Hope has done to help me and want to donate money to them, so they can continue with their important cancer research and helping others like me. If you’re at the Anime Expo, please stop by the Nandesuka booth, say hi, and purchase my merchandise.”
