Here's Nova . . .

Meisa Kuroki is going to play Yuki Mori (a.k.a. Nova in StarBlazers) in the new Yamato movie. Looks like she has taken on plenty of roles with ties to anime and manga:

-She was Sister Angela in the TV adaptation of 1 Pound no Fukuin (One Pound Gospel) based on the manga by Rumiko Takahashi.
-She played Miyamoto Subaru, the lead character in the movie Dance, Subaru! based off the manga from Masahito Soda.
-She was the voice for Vexille in the CG animated film of the same name.
-She was the character Grey in Mamuro Oshii's Assault Girls from last year.
-And for the Takashi Miike fans, she was Ruka Aizawa in '07's Crow Zero.

Here she is huckin' something called Cola Shock:

Here's her singing side being a "Bad Girl" (Might be a bit NSFW):

I think she'll make a fine Yuki/Nova.

FWIW, I don't think an actor/actress must have any type of fan street cred to take on these roles. After doing some link surfin', she seemed to have taken on some interesting roles. So, I posted this for the fun of it. That and I can't wait to see her in the black on yellow communication officer's uniform.

I wonder if they'll make her a blonde for the movie?
