She's not that hot. Certainly not nearly as hot as Ayame Goriki. I want to see Goriki everywhere I go. Much more Goriki !

It's obvious for the last few years he has stopped even trying to fulfill his potential as a golfer and has settled for being a golf tarento. Such a shame and waste of talent and I fear that in time he will be dropped by the Japanese media as the next flavour of the month comes along, he will regret that he didn't even really try to become the sportsman he could have.

I had to Google her and that other woman mentioned by Shinhiyata. Sorry Shin, Takei is much hotter. Her 20th birthday is on Christmas and I'd love to sing "Happy Birthday" in person to her.

Not my favorite, but much, MUCH better than Goriki. Cannot stand that woman. Kyary is better than her. At least my girl Shinoda is still up there.

I like Emi and enjoyed the dramas I've seen her in. She's cute and seems like a down-to-earth kinda gal. I recall from one variety show she admits she oftentimes goes to yakiniku places just by herself. Between her and Kitagawa Keiko, though, would be hard to choose.
