Happy 20th birthday to my all-time favorite young Japanese actress, Mirai Shida! I’ve been watching her ever since, I love the way she brings her characters to life. Her latest work as Natsu in Nobunaga no Chef pleased me a lot. Congratulations on everything you’ve achieved, and I wish you more blessings to come. Stay cute and pretty and appealing and awesome and all that complimenting adjectives. Good luck in life!! I look forward to more of your projects. / Shida Mirai, 10 May 1993.
