J-Popstar Ami Maeshima in Super Girls
Clad in rose pink, Ami is an original member. A pop idol used to performing in stadiums, being rushed through hordes of fans and living with the constant attention of the Japanese paparazzi. Her fame is equally as strong in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Now her name will garner even greater international acclaim for she will bring to life Sayu Yagami in the Death Note Musical, and Death Note fans are everywhere.

A year later, Ami became the recurring commercial face of Ito-Yokado, a Japanese retail chain. Between 2011-2014, she was also a model for the
Pichiremon (Gakken) line of gel nail polish. In 2013, Ami helped promote a Vintage Toy Exhibition too.
While being a Super Girl might be all about singing and dancing, the teenager is no stranger to acting either. She's had roles in five Japanese dramas - Suiensaa (2011), Sprout (2012), Tsuri Deka (2012-13), Family Game (2013) and Dad and Together (2014)
In 2013, Ami appeared as a character in the Nintendo 3DS original story game SPEC - Interference. This wasn't her first outing as a gaming voice actress. She'd contributed dialogue for the arcade game Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream back in 2011.
As a Super Girl, she's been the focus of two officially produced photo albums: Amita (2012) and Maeshima Ami (2013).
Her professional profile lists Ami's interests as being anime (we can all identify with that one!), playing with her cats and visiting the local planetarium.
While Sayu Yagami might have 'victim' plastered all over her demeanour, Ami Maeshima is no push-over. If Mello's Mafia thugs ever came for the actress, they'd be met with some serious karate resistance. Ami is especially known for her round-house kicks.
