Karina [香里奈] She's great in Love Shuffle: not the standard, yawn-worthy cliche woman.
Koyuki [小雪] She is great at showing emotions, while at the same time supressing them.
Hope to see her in many more dramas.
Maeda Atsuko [前田敦子] She does such a great job in Majisuka Gakuen. While seemingly and genuinely a serious and hardworking student, she can also beat the crap out of anyone. Her few emotional outburst were very well done, as were her vulnerable moments.
I hope she keeps acting now that she's no longer with AKB48.
Majisuka Gakuen [マジスカ学園] Great fun! [Rating: 9/10] It was such fun watching this. Instead of the goody-two shoes of so many media, we get to follow a bunch of very violent people beating the crap out of each other, while also seeing their struggles and friendships.
It's refreshing to have a series like this, that does not revolve around boring romantic subplots, but where friendship and rivalry is the main focus.
I am looking forward to watching seasons 2 and 3, and will be there as well if the rumored fourth season will come out.
