I thought people were sick of her since she hasn't been making an appearance lately. But Hollywood? LOL
It won't be long before she walks on the red carpet
I thought she was another one of those run off the mill child actresses, but I got shocked at how good her acting was. She's truly a genius.
I think it will be hard for her get over her child roles. She is a genius when it comes to such roles though.
She might eventually become the Japanese person closest to winning an Academy award
As expected of Ashida-Pro. The impact she left me when I saw her on Mother was probably the biggest ever for me.
So Rinko Kikuchi's pretty popular overseas?
She's appearing in a movie by Guillermo del Toro..? Wow!
I think someone joked saying, "She's bound to go to Hollywood soon"... so it's become a reality!
And Del Toro to top it off!
I thought that she finally disappeared recently, but what connections did she use to be able to make her way to Hollywood!? She's totally high profile.
My mom cried so hard while watching Mother, I was taken aback by that.
Whatever people may say, she really is amazing
As expected of Ashida-Pro
She might have already earned enough to last her for life.
Then maybe she'll retire in her 20s, talk about her life before she reaches 30, then move to a rural area, learn the know-hows of living in the province, take root in the ground and live in harmony with the wind.
Then she'll get married to a farmer in her 30s, plant her seeds in the winter, and rejoice with the birds in the coming of spring.
She's already in her 2nd round in life
That's amazing of Ashida-Pro to get back at the comedians and talents who earn their paychecks by criticizing child talents and joking about becoming Hollywood actresses.
She's grown. How old is she now?
I thought she disappeared but she's in a Hollywood movie? As expected of Ashida-Pro
Ashida-san is better suited for roles like the one she played in Mother than MaruMori
And if she can dance, she would have surpassed Yu Aoi already.
Here I am thinking that I haven't been seeing her lately...
She's really levelled up a bunch there.
But I bet it will only be a minute or 2, right? Kind of like Seiko Matsuda in Armageddon.
Can you still call that amazing?
She's just on a different class when compared to the other child actors
But she'll only be in a flashback scene that's about 5 minutes long, right?
She really is a beast when it comes to acting.
She should study English and do her best in America.
I thought I haven't been seeing Ashida-senpai lately, but she's making her Hollywood debut? Amazing.
Amazing. A Hollywood actress, huh.
This will generate more buzz than using some unknown kid
So she's doing her specialty, which is crying, huh?
I think she has presence.
But Pro's agency is small, right? They're great for working hard like this.
This girl's a genius, but so is Miyu Honda. I'm so jealous of their parents...
Hollywood debut LOL
Yu Yashiro's imitations will probably be put to an end
It was a blind spot but when you think about it, she's actually the number one Japanese actress whom you won't be ashamed of to appear in Hollywood.
People bashed her for this stupid reason that she didn't seem like a child, but she's really a genius.
If it'll be shown at the same time as Gatchaman then Gatchaman won't stand a chance
Gatchaman's already being made fun of
I actually laughed at the last part of Mother when she called Yasuko "Matsuyuki". Because she was so amazing.
I'm worried about where she'll be headed to
