PGSM became Role Association as Keiko Kitagawa and Masaya Kikawada are reunited as major characters in the Japanese drama film Dear Friends. Fans familiar to the live-action Sailor Moon will find it a huge Playing Against Type for both actors since Keiko plays a sex-obsessed loner Rich Bitch, while Masaya is her superficial D.J. love interest.
Star-Making Role: Keiko Kitagawa as Sailor Mars. This was her acting debut, which led directly to her career in film. It probably helped that, of the Sailor Senshi, most of the fandom agreed she was the best match for her character. While the other cast members are in different fields, Keiko is still the one most widely known.
