Starting off the year with the Monday-9 drama Shitsuren Chocolatier, Kasumi Arimura (20) will not be short of projects on commercial TV and promised that she will make strides this year as an actress.
Arimura got her break as the young Haruko Amano, mother of the main character in Amachan as she was associated with a pure and innocent image. But as she enters her 5th year in the industry, Arimura thinks otherwise.
"I have never thought of myself as someone with an innocent image. I want to play different roles, notice the good and bad characteristics that I have, and express those properly." "I am grateful for being a part of a program which was tuned into by the entire nation, and it made me really happy. But that's already done, and I can never be a 'newbie' forever."
Arimura will be playing Jun Matsumoto's younger sister in Shitsuren Chocaltier, and will be in a love triangle with the boyfriend of her friend. This is her first time appearing in a romantic drama and comments: "I really don't know how awkward a love triangle is, but I have experienced the excitement and nervousness you'd feel once you like someone...".

Hey now w
Looks like she's sulking because she wasn't invited to the Kouhaku
- 能年は事務所の方針でＣＭ契約控えてる露出を増やせば逆に飽きられるからNounen isn't appearing in too many commercials because of her agency's policy.
Because if she gets more exposure, people will grow tired of her.
- あまちゃんと並行してやってた、「スターマン」の宇宙少女の役はかなり良かったぞShe was actually pretty good as the alien girl in Starman which was shown at the same time as Amachan.
But Kayo Machida will be the one who makes her huge break this year
All these Amachan participants have been striking CM deals and dramas, but I rarely see Nounen-chan
No one thinks she's pure and innocent w
- この子男からはかわいいって思われるだろけど女から見たら昔からよくいるぶりっ子風で男に媚び売るタイプに見えて嫌われるんじゃないのかI think this girl looks cute in the eyes of men, but women might find her to be the goody-goody type who tries to get the affection of men, which will make her hated
- 失恋の主演は石原さとみだろ、有村は脇だろ主演やるほどのインバクトないな、やったら川口と同じ目にあいそうBut Satomi Ishihara's the lead in Shitsuren Chocolatier while Arimura's just in a supporting role. She lacks the impact to play the lead. I get the feeling that she'll have the same fate as Kawaguchi if she does play the lead.
That's what we've been saying, appearing in a Fuji TV drama will just lower your standing...
- SPECでかわいいと思ったが名前を覚えられなかったなあまちゃんで髪型が似合いすぎてインパクトが強くて覚えたｗまあ、別にSPECの役も印象は強かったけどI thought she was cute in SPEC but her name didn't stick.
But her hairdo suited her extremely well in Amachan, it left such a strong impact which made me remember her.
But well, she also left an impact with her role in SPEC.
Do your best~
- オスカーステマ三人衆と一緒で広末の事務所が押してるだけだろShe's the same as the Oscar trio.
She's just being pushed by Hirosue's agency.
A "conventional" beauty
I hope all these Amachan actresses do their best
- この子前歯差し歯だよね？こんなに若いのに差し歯だなんてかわいそう…This girl's front teeth are dentures, right? I feel sorry that she has to use dentures at such a young age...
But this girl is in a pretty safe spot since she'll become a regular in Yukihiko Tsutsumi's works
- 能年よりトークしっかりしてて好感持てるShe's better than Nounen when it comes to talking, she's more likable
People who didn't watch Amachan actually don't care that much about her
She smokes, right?
- 伸びないなあ、可愛いのに。主役の器じゃないってことなのかねえ。Looks like her career isn't growing. To think that she's so cute.
Maybe she doesn't have what it takes to play leading roles.
- 伸びるでしょ 戸田恵梨香ぐらいまではあとは事務所の力Of course she'll grow. At least up to someone like Erika Toda.
Beyond that will be up to the abilities of her agency.
She's got a face that you can find working in convenience stores, diners, or obento shops in rural areas
I thought she was Horikita
I like Arimura-san a lot
She's got what it takes to hold the entire industry in her palm, if she wants to
