Anyone who's in the "know" about Japanese entertainment should know who this woman is. If you don't even know Miho as an actress, you definitely know her for the photobook she published a few years ago. Probably one of the last famous-to-topless people I can think of (others include Miyazawa Rie and Fujita Tomoko.)

In Iguana no musume, her nose looks the same so I guess it's her real nose.

great actress. :wub:

I dont think so. It should be in her dramawiki profile if she was in Saitou-san.

watching her right now in "Itoshi Kimi E"

i find it weird that sometimes she looks so good in one scene, and completely ordinary in another.
with regards to acting skills, she's pretty good.

a question though, has she had some work done on her lips?

finished Itoshi

just a rant, she wears really odd clothes when she is offduty in this drama, i wonder if it's part of the script or her own taste.

as far as her acting is concerned, no complaints

anyone want to suggest/name her top 3 dramas?

I guess I missed the poll. :lol

I've seen her in Sommelier, Isshou Wasurenai Monogatari, Ai wo Kudasai and Tomorrow. I think she's really good in all of them. And she's got range; she can cry her eyes out in one scene then be a total mischief in another. :thumright:

Let me add my concurrence with the last few posters.

Miho Kanno can play an evil villainess , a love-sick maid
or a daughter of an iguana will equal skill. I never pass
up a chance to see her perform.

I'm a fan of her's too. I saw her first in Churasan and thought she was really beautiful and talented. Since then I've seen her in Doll's, Tomie, Itoshi Kimi e, Hataraki man, and Tomorrow. She's been in so many drama's over the yrs I'd love to watch them all. And refering to groink's post above I found some of her nudes after a google search. I just had to say wow :heart:

Ai no Uta is pretty good and I really liked her in it. Unfortunately, the plot
does involve an incredibly tired cliche but the ending is a bit different
from what you might expect.

Her character in Churasan was one of my favorites. The quality of the drama
sort of diminished as the story went along but Miho's character was always
a bright spot.

One of her very best performances was in Ooku which, as far as I know,
has never been subbed in English.

I also liked her character in "Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai".

"Watashitachi no kyokasho" is also quite good but with a few too many plot twists
to be totally believable. Definitely worth giving a shot. Her character has several
facets.

She starred in a TV special about the first Japanese female astronaut. The story
seemed a bit fictionalized but it was still enjoyable. The title was,
"Onna no Ichidaiki - Mukai Chiaki."

I may be wrong but I think these subs are just for the third season of Ooku.
I should have been more precise with my previous post. My recommendation
there was for the first season of Ooku for which she won a best actress award.

I think that is right although there was a couple seasons of the drama about 25 years ago.
(See http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Ooku#Season_3)

I think Miho Kanno was only in the 2003 episodes which I consider to be the first season.

Kiina was a very mediocre drama. But due to the attraction of Kanno's sheer charisma, it was the highest rated evening drama of the season, beating out Voice by .01%

Recently watched Satomi Hakkenden. Miho is brilliant in it. Her character is so dark and evil. The drama also has an allstar cast. I highly recommend it :salut:

I really like her too.
I first saw her in Koi ga Shitai, then I saw her in some other dramas and didn't recognize her, she looks different in different dramas. But I think I liked the way she looked in Watashitachi no Kyokasho the best, she was just so cute with those glasses. :wub:

Since there are two drama's with Kanno Miho being subbed at the moment: Magerarenai onna and Kimi no te ga sasayaite iru, and because they are both pretty brilliant, I've decided to look for a Kanno Miho Thread. Found this one and got interested in Satomi Hakkenden. It has no seeds anymore though. I'll try to request it at the request seeds thread.

I thought it was funny people talked about her having had a nose job in the beginning of this thread. She did look very different when she was younger, but i think its the teeth. They were a bit crooked then. She must have worn a brace at some point.
The thing that's stayed the same is the enormous talent! I think she probably is the best actress around! I've seen her in some mediocre drama's, but was always impressed by her acting. Since I first saw her in Dolls (genius!), I've been trying to see as many drama's with her in it as possible. As I was saying, some of them were quite bad. Luckily there are some real gems too. Hataraki man and now Magerarenai onna are really funny. Kimi no te ga sasayaite iru is like ten years old and although it feels a bit dated, it's really moving! actually episode 2 was among the best drama's that I've seen!

Anyways, just felt like letting my admiration out :-)

Thank you for the tips. Started the download at Nya! Fansubs!

Have seen a couple of the nude photo's through Google a while ago. Wasn't too impressed with them. I think Kanno Miho is interesting for making that choice though. Think it was a gamble with her career, which is extreme. Still it bought her some freedom I think. She overcame the conservative views on women and it led to some interesting roles. She didn't have to be the sweet cute girl anymore. She's full of character, so I think she needed this. It shows in her roles in the last couple of drama's: Hataraki man, Kiina, Magerarenai onna.

I think most japanese actors (and probably most actors everywhere) are being typecast. She now is being typecast as an independant woman. That might just be the thing she wanted!

Haven't seen Li Hito. Hows that one? Might check it out later
:-)

Thanks again!

In ii hito (check Band of Nuts Funsub) Kusanagi Tsuyoshi and Kanno Miho are playing some kind of naive and honest character. She acting like her shy nice role in iguana no musume.

I think, she looks different in this old drama. Her face was softer.

Kanno Miho is one of the best in the business, given her diverse range of acting and also her professionalism, not minding to take a back seat when needed.

I found a clip from this drama. One of the scene from Ep6.

In "Kimi no Te ga Sasayaiteru" Ep1 Miho still had her hair long, and that was filmed in the end of 1997.
In "Kimi no Te" Ep2, filmed in the end of 1998, she sport on short hair already.

Apparently this is where she cut her hair short :P

Mmm... That's sad. Glad it didn't end her career though!
What I meant with the remark is that I admire her strength to go a different way. I think that's somehow reflected in some of her roles.

I've heard this before but it's always in the form of a rumor or third-hand news other than
a real news story. (I don't consider Wikipedia a "real" source.)

Just finished "Ai wo Kudasai"...
When i first watched "Kimi no Te..." i thought she was really deaf. Then realized i saw her in different doramas before, and she was not deaf in those...
My favs of her include "Iguana no Musume", "Kiina", "Ai wo Kudasai", and "Ai no Uta".
