ROOKIES [ルーキーズ] loved this drama (Another Bad News Bears type story) but with a idealistic goofy teacher/coach reaching out to violent high school juvenile delinquents (ala Gokusen) & turning them into baseball champions who try to reach Koshien to play their rival. pretty intense.
Kashii Yu [香椎由宇] Good acting role was in the movie adaptation of Lorelei: The Witch of the Pacific Ocean in which she played the mysterious title character. Also saw her good acting in Tokyo Tower, My Boss My Hero, Linda Linda Linda, Meitantei no Okite, Yukan Club, and Death Note (Desu Nōto)
Narumi Riko [成海璃子] Cute plus has a wide range for acting from Jr. High student in ( Juken no Kamisama/The Goddess of Exams ) to College age in (Honey & Clover/Hachimitsu to Clover ) a year later! seems to always play anti-social or hen characters (Hatachi no Koibito)who's in her own world... =)

Uchiyama Rina [内山理名] The absolutely gorgeous and talented Uchiyama Rina has had roles in many successful dramas such as Good Luck!, SOS, and Moto Kare. Although not known to be the "leading lady", with such charisma and potential, there is no doubt that in only a matter of time she will steal the spotlight
