She's just so... perfect. For the role of Rukia, but she also make the first RMB cast complete. Even with all the other great actors, it wouldn't be the same without her. She's funny and she's the best actress I've ever seen. Seeing her backstage - how could you NOT love her?! She's brilliant. I don't appreciate the new cast actors, but if they'd replace her, god, I'd be so furious. To me, she and Tatsuya-san are the very essence of RMB. They're Ichigo and Rukia. And no one can replace them. Never.
