The Top Spelunker Player In Japan Is A Pin-Up Model

...though, calling idol Haruna Anno simply a "pin-up model" isn't entirely accurate. She's a gaming idol and not by accident.

Last month, Haruna posted her Street Fighter IV online stats. She had fought in 214 fights, won 178 of them and lost 36. Her winning percentage was an impressive 83.13 percent.


Haruna is hardly a casual player. Her room is a gaming shrine, filled with retro game hardware, an arcade cabinet and games — lots of games. She's dead serious about playing, too. She claims to have once played Chrono Trigger for 36 hours straight and has whizzed through Super Mario Bros. so many times that she can clear World 1-1 without looking at the screen.


Since her specialty is retro gaming, the HD Spelunker remake for the PS3 is right up her alley. She came, she saw and, yes, she has already conquered. She blogs this about Minna de Spelunker:

Now, it's 3 o'clock. Finally, I'm in first place!! Number one nationwide! It's currently 3am on March 27. I can totally keep going. I should be able to even for the next three weeks.

This isn't totally unexpected as Anno was involved in the game's promotion. Still, she'll pwn you proper.
