Chinen Rina [知念里奈] Here's a perfect example of pure white-skinned Asians. Cute, beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, extravegant, elegant, delicate, young, youthful, white, soft, smooth and clean.
Koyuki [小雪] Young, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant, Exqusite, White, Light, Soft, Smooth, Clean-Skinned. First saw her in The Last Samurai. I hated her role in Pulse, cause she commits pistol-seppuku. One the things that attracts me to her is her lillte lisp. She's an Asian Snow White.
Kuriyama Chiaki [栗山千明] 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.
Kuroki Hitomi [黒木瞳] Young, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant, Exqusite, White, Light, Soft, Smooth, Clean-Skinned. Damn! For someone being 45, she's preserved her youthful appearance. To me she still looks like in her 20's or 30's. I was shocked when I saw her birthday. All Asians preserve their youthfulness. I don't give a crap if anyone told them they had plastic surgery. That's a lie! Not like over here in the States where most of the majority of people look old, decayed, decrepant, raggy, molding, crispy, fried, burnt, toasted, dirty-skinned Americans (As in Euro-Americans). For example: Who looks older, Britney Spears or Hitomi Kuroki? I'd say Hitomi Kuroki.
Sakai Wakana [酒井若菜] Not only is she beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, elegant, delicate, exquisite, young, youthful and cute, but SHE SURE IS HOT AND SEXY!
Suzuki Kyoka [鈴木京香] Young, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant, Exquisite, White, Light, Soft, Smooth, Clean-Skinned. Loved her in Shinsengumi, except the fact she was Serizawa's friend. SHE'S MY FRIEND! No other man can have but me!
Takeuchi Yuko [竹内結子] Another perfect example of white-skinned Asians. Beautiful, gorgeous, cute, elegant, extravegant, delicate, hot, sexy, white, soft, smooth and clean. There's too many words to describe Yuko Takeuchi.
Uchiyama Rina [内山理名] Young, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant, Exqusite, White, Light, Soft, Smooth, Clean-Skinned. She looked so cute when she was ed off in War Of The Belles.
Yamamoto Koji [山本耕史] Has a strong resemblance to Kenshin Himura from Samurai X and Ruroni Kenshin in Shinsengumi.

Shinsengumi [新撰組] Supreme Sovereign Of Japanese Dramas [Rating: 10/10] Okay let me start off by saying I wish they were still showing that series over here in the States! I miss it EXTREMELY. You all don't know HOW MUCH I miss it! At the beginning I thought the Shinsengumi was a fictional militant group that was featured in the OVA series Samurai X. But until I saw a promotional commercial for the series 2 years ago which had the title "Shinsengumi", I said to myself "There was actually a historical group call the Shinsengumi?" Okay so I decided to check it but I missed a couple of the beginning episodes. I think it was Episode: 7 or 8 I started to watch it. After watching a couple minutes of it, soon thereafter I instantly fell in love with the series. I would wait every Saturday night at 9:00 PM (California) to watch it. Alas, once the last episode aired I was sad because it was the series finale. With only 49 episodes and a mini-movie after Kondo Isami's starring Kondo's righthand man, Hijikata Toshizo. What also sucks for me is that I reminisce about the series everyday and that I'm stuck with watching these corny Honky-Tonk/Crackerjack crap like the "Law & Order" franchise, the "Stargate" franchise, % Eye For The Straight Guy", "The Sopranos", "The Simpsons", "Desperate Housewives" and all that other Euro-American garbage. My only salvation is the Japanese channel on Cox Cable. I wish I had a cable company with nothing but Asian channels. But enough about that, let me tell you all the details why I liked the series. The actors and actresses portrayed their roles perfectly. Everyone fit the their parts exactly. Production quality was superb, such as the enviroments, the props--everthing was a great. Music is another thing that lured me into the show. The music was phenomenal, excellent, magnificent, fantastic, extraordinary and unparalleled. The music sounds so similar to Disney. Also, I can't forget to mention all the Beautiful, Gorgeous, Pretty, Cute, Hot, y, Delightful, Charming, Elegant and Exqusite s in Shinsengumi. I thought Tsune was Cute, Oume was Cute, Miyuki Dayuu and her longlost twin sister were Cute, Hide was Cute, Okoto was Cute, Akesato was Cute and--ah, hell all of them were Cute, except the elderly. The only problem is that they all had lovers, husbands and boyfriends. When the truth of the matter is that THEY ARE ALL MINE! MINE! No other man's. So screw the guys! But anyways, my favorite male characters are of course Hijikata Toshizo, Kondo Isami, Okita Souji, Serizawa Kamo, Sanosuke, Jinpachi, Saitou Hajime and Toudou Keisuke. I know I keep mentioning this, I don't know if anyone else has read my previous posts, but my favorite character off all time from that series is Koji Yamamoto as Hijikata. He makes the best Hijikata of all time. I know I've written this before too, but not to sound ish or anything but I he's a handsome dude. From a male perspective, of course! Secondly, if you read my profile, I put under Fav Artistes that he has a strong resemblance to Kenshin Himura from Samurai X and Ruroni Kenshin. If they were to film an adaptational movie about Samurai X, he would make a great Kenshin Himura. And if any of you agree with me, they should do it in English, since Koji spokes English (Don't know if he can speak fluently but I saw him in this Japanese show called, "Can you Speak English") When I saw him as a guest on the show, I was utterly surprise that he spoke it fluently, I don't know if he's a beginner or what, if he is, he's a damn good learner. Picking it up fast. I also think they should an American movie about the Shinsengumi. Just like what they did with Memoirs of A Geisha. 'Cause like I said earlier I'm not only tired of American TV shows, but American movies as well. Not to disrespect or take anything away from the Japanese audience or the actors and actresses native language but I wanna see more Asian actors and actresses, especially Japanese, speak English in an American-made Asian movie. Just like what they did with Memoirs Of A Geisha. Hollywood has a stereotypical view on a lot of Asians. They always portray Asians as being the Pidgeon English speaking F.O.B. Hollywood only believes in "White Power". If they did make an American version of Shinsengumi I would want to see the original cast or at least most of them from the TV series in the movie. So now you all know why I'm calling this review "Supreme Sovereing of Japanese Dramas". I'm doing everything in my power to obtain this drama on DVD w/ English Subtitles. I'm starting to get desperate, though. I'm thinking about buying a Region Free DVD player from YesAsia.com and just buying the Complete DVD boxsets. Unless anybody here on this website knows any other resources I can try on the internet. Please, tell me if you do. Well, I have nothing more to say, you all know how much I love the series. If I were to pick a rating from 1-10, I'd I give a 1,000,000,000,000. I'm out
