Considering how much we love Juri-chan as Nodame, I don't think any drawing's ever going to compare. :lol

I'm not a fan of anime at all. Even Miyazaki. I just consider Dragon Ball "cartoons I used to watch when I was still a kid."

Has anyone seen the anime version of Nodame? Or read the manga. I'm curious what fans of the manga/anime think of Nodame's portrayal. :D

Does cardboard have any expressions? :scratch: cardboard??! WTH... feel sorry that this theard gets such pitiful comments srsly... I feel sorry for people who get so riled up when someone tries to use hyperbole to be amusing. It's just a show. I also pity your spelling. :cheers: :alcoholic: :goggle...

Juri should be up for best supporting actress then. Something interesting about deciding on the winners. There are 3 voting categories, readers, judges and critics/reporters. I think the overall winner is based on percentages from these 3 group's vote. An example: Best actress: Ueno Juri for Nodame...

Anything with Uchi is worth watching. In all seriousness though, I really like Osen. It's funny, thoughtful, and cute.

I've seen a bunch of Aoi Yu's movies (Hula Girls, Gaichu, Welcome to the Quiet Room, Niji no megami, All About Lily ChouChou, Hana and Alice, and Turtles Swim Faster than Expected), and she's only second to Juri-chan in my book.

Masami needs to take more challenging/different roles. I loved her in "Crying Out Love..." but I'm tired of seeing her in these types of roles. Right now, Juri-chan >>> Masami, until she shows more versatility at least. This cannot be argued. Only Aoi Yu approaches or equals Juri-chan in t...

Juri-chan should get the best actress nod. I didn't think Masami did a good job at all. Or Ryo--all he had to do was look creepy, which is actually quite natural to his face. I don't think Eita was given enough to earn a nomination though.

Juri even said that it's hard for her not to be influenced by how she feels in real life so if she really felt that badly, it would affect her acting.
