Most Beautiful Actresses of the Showa Series

Postby ebirahsmeg1 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 9:58 am

I thought this would be an interesting topic and good place to post some pics....Discuss who you think the most beautiful/hottest/stunning/etc. actresses were of the showa series.

For me, nothing beats the trifecta (Akiko Wakabayashi, Kumi Mizuno, and Hama Mie)

Oh yeah, let's not forget the hot kung fu chick from GvsGigan (Yuriko Hishimi, who was in Ultra Seven as well)

Hama Mie is probably my number 1 choice.

I'd have to agree with you here, with the notable addition of Tomoko Ai as Katsura. However, it's kind of weird to have Hama's name presented in the traditional Japanese form, "Hama Mie" (surname first, given name second), while you've got the others in the reverse order, as is customary in English. Not trying to knock you, as either way is fine, but consistency, please.

Gee....thanks for the condescending cultural lesson, seeing as I've lived in Japan for 5 years, I would have never guessed :roll: Try not to let it distract you too much from the thread's topic...

I know we all love Kumi, but for me, its Akiko or bust.

Well, since you like to bring up your living in Japan an awful lot, it kind of surprised me that you would flip the order around apparently at random in the midst of a sentence. I wasn't trying to be condescending. All I said was that it was distracting and that it would feel a lot less weird if you would stick with one approach.

Some poor quality photos (sorry, no scanner) of a two page spread of all of the most prominent TOHO SFX actresses together in the same room! :D

Quiz time...can you name/identify the Godzilla girls in each picture? The winner gets a date with Shaku Yumiko.

AKIKO WAKABAYASHI all the way :D

Kumi Mizuno a close second (as Daiyo)

forget their names for now, but the girls from Terror of MechaGodzilla and Destroy All Monsters were cute.

Very bizarre, rare clip of Akiko Wakabayashi from an Italian film called....Akiko ( apparently named after her):

Brett Homenick talks about a recent surprise visit from Yukiko Kobayashi from DAM/Vampire Doll/YOG fame at a Godzilla-related event in Tokyo on Nov. 3rd:

Wish I would have known about this event as I was actually free that day would love to have attended.

She apparently also attended the Chiller Halloween convention in Parsippany, New Jersey along with Kenji Sahara:

Not sure how I started this topic without ever mentioning GvsGigan's (and Ultra-Seven's) Yuriko Hishimi (aka Momagon :P ).

Here she is throwing out a ceremonial pitch at a Yokohama (now Dena) Bay Star's baseball game (She's aged very well, considering she's pushing 70) She definitely can't throw a slider, that's for sure :P :
