Yoshitaka Yuriko is cute. I liked her in Shiroi Haru and Tokyo Dogs — both in which she plays “the cute girl”. She is also known for her role in popular romance-comedy drama Love Shuffle and her first leading role in the human drama Mioka. Her breakout role was in the movie Snakes and Earrings (2007), based on an award-winning novel, which earned her a best newcomer and best actress award. Yuriko also appeared in the music video for Arigato by FLOW — one of my favourite Japanese rock bands. Music video below:

She also starred in the two live-action films for popular manga-anime franchise Gantz as Tae Kojima. Movie info and trailer here.

I found myself re-watching Attention Please! again this weekend, starring one of my favourites Ueto Aya. Her character’s quirky personality and funny faces never seem to amuse. This comedy-drama also has two follow-up special episode-movies.

Now that I think of it, I don’t remember finishing the Nagareboshi series.. Anyways, I like her voice — did you know she’s the Japanese Voice of Bella in Eclipse (Twilight saga)?
