As an actress, she is not as terrible as one might think. Granted, the films she is in are hardly high cinema, but she might be compared to other talented B-Movie actresses like Rosalba Neri, Lina Romay, and her fellow Japanese Meiko Kaji. While none of these women are Meryl Streep, they certainly surpass their respective genres. Asami is similar, if not on their level.
