Mimura [ミムラ] I've seen her in "Beginners" and she did a great job for a newcomer to show business. She was selected among 10,000 applicants in a "cattle call" audition for the role in Beginners . Beside, she's soooooooooo kawaii!
Mizuno Miki [水野美紀] Saw her in "Koibito wa Sniper". She can do action/fight scenes and her looks are delectable!
Oda Akane [小田茜] I've seen her in a few episodes of Saturday Night at Mysteries. Very pretty.
Beginner [ビギナー] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) Very good looking female cast, but unless it's subtitled in English, the legal terms in Japanese are much too difficult to follow. I like it because I'm in the legal field.
Hakoiri Musume! [ハコイリムスメ！] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) This is a sweet story about two sisters who live in a Mountain village on the outskirts of Tokyo looking for the love of their lives.
The younger girl (Akari) meets and falls for a medical student, who suffers from amnesia following a car accident. He loses all memories of her. However, she sticks by him and eventually they fall in love all over again.
The older girl (Hana) is pursued by Keith, a white American played by Mark Condon, though judging from his accent I think he might be Australian. They play emotional seesaw by she first rejecting him then falling for him, he then transfering back to the States, she then deciding to marry a Japanese, he then quitting his job and returning to Japan to be with Hana.
Tokumei Kakarichou Tadano Hitoshi [特命係長 只野仁] (Watched) Katsunori Takahashi plays a character similar to Salaryman Kintaro. A fighter and a ladykiller. However, the storylines might not be as exciting for most Takahashi fans
