    I have seen One Missed Call at least 50 times and I never noticed that this was the chick that played Mitsuko in Battle Royale. =[

      Often it's contractual issues or scheduling issues. Rarely, it is personal differences between individuals. For example, rumor has it that a bad break-up between Nakama Yukie and Matsumoto Jun is the reason that Sawada Shin's character didn't reappear in Gokusen 2. I haven't heard anything that a personal issue was the reason for Kou not appearing in Galileo 2.
