Hashimoto Kanna and Aragaki Yui Top J-fan Poll of Legendary Japanese Actress Beauties

There are fewer polls out of J-ent but the few I see are always interesting as a glimpse at what J-netizens consider pretty/popular. This week a poll of Top 20 Legendary Beauties of J-ent shows a lot of familiar and even classic actress beauties on this 2020 list.
