Mao consistently places at the Top 10 of almost every image survey in Japan. People called her childlike and 'pure' image refreshing compared to the contrived and artificial personalities of actresses and idols nowadays. Personally I don't want her to be an actress, but she can be a good spokesperson for a company and she's credible enough to star in more CMs!
Off-topic, but Aiba having the highest ranking among all JE talents? That's new!
