Born in Tokyo, Japan on February 16, 1996, Komatsu made her debut in 2008 as a fashion model in Nico☆Puchi magazine. Since then, she has worked a model for various magazines.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Although Komatsu had never read JoJo before appearing in the film, she was familiar with the series and had many friends who were into it. To prepare for the role of Yukako Yamagishi, Komatsu ate lots of wakame seaweed to let her hair grow naturally. However, in the end, she decided to wear hair extensions instead because it wasn't long enough.
Komatsu's unique portrayal of Yukako Yamagishi likely influenced the character's later appearance in the one-shot Deoxyribonucleic Acid and the exhibition Bulgari X Hirohiko Araki, which were released the same year as the film and feature very similar hairstyles.
