For Mranda, what about the actress who plays Tosh in Torchwood? British Japanese, IIRC.
For some reason, I can't make Naoko Mori fit into how I wrote Kadohata. Not sure why. *shrug*
But she's a good choice too, yeah.
Put it this way, the reason why I'm harping on Stephanie Jacobsen is that I spent the entire time I was watching Battlestar Galactica: Razor
boggling at how absolutely perfectly
she fit my mental picture of Kadohata.
