Ueno Juri as Kishimoto Ruka



It's really a serious and sad yet sophisticated jdrama. Her role quite disturbs me especially at the end of episode 1. Juri's new role is quite a challenge for her definitely different in her past drama characters. Even though shes not as cutesy as Nodame in this drama I'll still watch this cause her acting is really amazing and convincing. Last Friends is a good drama this April and I've been waiting some serious drama for along time! hehe this past 2 months I've always watched comedy jdrama. And the Opening of Last Friends is definitely will win an award! very nice choice for a song.

yaaa she's cool
deadly serious, i think that she's really COOL and stylish
she has the boyish charm in LF
even in other dramas/movies she can bring up the role just fantastically

even she cut her cute hair (just like in nodame cantabile), she still look gorgeous and sophisticated
just like a spunky and brilliant woman

When i first saw the poster for Last Friends, i didn't realize she was in there, and i was thinking---> 3 guys and 2 girls huh?

Then afterwards, when i read the casts, i was shocked too ^^ And i searched for Juri-chan, until i realized that short hair person lying damn close to Masami is HER. @_@


But i'm amazed though, i'm glad she took up the challenge to execute this role. I know she can do it. Give her any role, whether a cute/adorable one like Nodame or messed up girl in Tsubasa, she can convince us.

And well, i was kinda taken aback too with the 1st ep of LF, the ending scene
she did great there haha xD I have no problem with her being Ruka and whatever gender problems she has lol...it shows her potential. It'd be boring if she takes a Nodame-alike role again.

I think she's doing great as Ruka, somehow she really is able to tell the feelings through the screen.
When I watched an episode of Nodame Cantabile I really didn't put that together with Juri. She really looks differentO_o

i really like her character in last friends...i think that she plays the role well and it makes her definitely shine...
by playing the character she can show her versatility as an actress...
another award winning performance from juri...

yup i love her in both but in nodame she had to express most of her feelings through action and music while in last friends all she used was her facial expression and those beautiful eyes of hers. i agree that she was cute in nodame but i fell in love with her in last friends.

it's my first time watching juri act. my, she so kick ass damn it! i'm amazed at how different she look in the other films. i wonder if they made her up more in her previous films or in last friends. i'm obsessively staring at all her pictures trying to figure... i'm watching 2nd eps of tsubasa and she hasn't appeared yet... can't wait!!

I think Juri is sooo cute as RUKA! she is so spunky with the short hair! I love her boyish style in last friends. It is funny thou, even in interviews she seems to keep part of the character with her. After nodame she was cute and a bit silly, but now after last friends she seems.......... um.... well very Ruka like
