Chisaka Hama Picture
Chisaki Hama (浜 千咲 Hama Chisaki, born November 10, 1988 in
Kyoto) is a Japanese model, actress, and singer.
Her first (and, as of 2004, only) major acting role was as Ami Mizuno (Sailor
Mercury) in the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. She was the second
youngest cast member of the show, after Naoki Takeshi, who played Shingo Tsukino.
She (like the other actresses in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon) released a CD
"single", actually containing two songs, for her character Sailor Mercury: Mi
Amor (Spanish: my love) and Yakusoku (約束, meaning promise). It is notable that
Spanish is used in her CD: use of any language other than Japanese or scattered
English phrases in J-Pop is rare, and Spanish would likely be considered obscure
or exotic by most Japanese listeners. Its use as such was probably intended to
emphasize her character's genius-level intelligence.
