I met her this year (2007) at the EXTE DVD presentation. If you don't know it, you would never believe that this young woman played characters like Chigusa, Agi, Kozue, Go Go Yubari or Sayoko. Or take her part in Hagetaka, the sexy, mature, hardheaded, stubborn journalist. But in fact, she's really a very sweet young lady and I have to say, I really appreciated and enjoyed those short moments exchanging a few words with her.
Yes, she's not as good looking as others, however, what are "good looks"? It's very subjective. Personally I think she is quite good looking (I really like her eyes, and yes, her nose IS big, but it fits perfectly into her face), and most importantly, she has charisma and a certain presence in front of the camera (and in private/public) that many other idols simply don't have (let's take Horikita Maki as a good example). Most of them are just cute and that's it. And, honestly, that's not nearly enough for me.
Kuriyama-san has charisma, talent and personality. She's not just a cute face who can't carry her roles herself and who has to rely heavily on her support. She can carry them. She doesn't have to rely on her support cast in order to do her job perfectly. No matter what they give her, she can do it, decently.
In ten years, she'll still be around with decent movies and tv appearances, while most of the other idols from her age group will be long gone.
Only 33 votes? Oh come on people! She deserves more than that!
Everyone's seen her in BR and Kill Bill, thats where I first found her. But she's awsome in movies like 'Shikoku' (she plays a ghost) and an interesting dorama called 'Rokubanme no Sayako' (The sixth Sayako)
Her eyes make her perfect to play anyone who is is well... as my friends and I refer to her as,... freaky ^^ll
Great actress, great character, loved to see her as a happy go-lucky person just to see how far her acting can go ^.~
Sexy, Beautiful, Brilliant, Great actress.
What else can be said?
I've been a huge fan of hers since I got my hands on Battle Royale.
I thought she was the only good thing about Kill Bill(Note: I do not like the Kill Bill movie saga(I and II) )
And now I wanna see her new drama on NHK.
She rocks the world!
Check her out!

Extremely versatile actress. She can play anything, literally anything. She's #3 on my personal Top Ten list. Too bad that her most hyped role was her weakest performance ever (Go Go in Kill Bill), but she easily made up for that with Kagen No Tsuki, Youkai Daisensou, Hagetaka and EXTE.
Young, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant, Exquisite, White, Light, Soft, Smooth, Clean-Skinned. First saw her in Kill Bill. She was the one who got me into Asian s in the first place.
She was good in Battle Royale, but also in Rokubanme no Sayoko, O-daiba.com, Kagen no Tsuki, R-17, or Mail. As for Azumi 2 and Kill Bill, well... sadly both of her characters there lacked depth.
she always proved that she's a talented actress by her acting in many different roles.. she played as a ghost, psycho, crazy girl and another kind of weird character..
She was so cool in Hagetaka. Maybe now people will stop always referring to her as "Go Go from Kill Bill", she's far better than that. Kill Bill sucked.
chiaki is "the coolest girl in the world", loved her in kill bill, loved her in battle royale, hope they give her more acting roles in upcoming dramas
Extremely versatile actress. She can be happy-go-lucky, romantic, and freaky-as-hell.
