The Year in Review – 2015 Breakthrough Japanese Actors & Actresses- Who will rock the scene in 2016 and beyond?!!

Funny (really) how time flew when we were just raving about Satoshi Tsumabuki, Mao Inoue, Hikari Mitsushima and Masanobu Ando way back in 2012, and now three years later, we are celebrating the young acting careers of boys and girls who are so much younger than Tsumabuki, et al.

2015 saw a lot of breakthrough actors in the Japanese movie and drama scenes that it’s hard to narrow it down to 10, but then again, we’ll be seeing them very soon as they all seem to be grabbing upcoming projects sooner than later. Hoping that their talent agencies are as committed as these young guys and gals!

Oh, ok so yes, we have 14 names on the list – instead of just 10 – since these young talents are going to make big news in 2016. We’ve been right for the past three years so!

I’m very sure that Nijiro Murakami, Taishi Nakagawa, Hiroya Shimizu and Mahiro Takasugi will get more lead roles, while Fumika Shimizu, Yuina Kuroshina, Ayami Nakajo and Mio Yuki are going to rock the scene very soon!
