Welcome to my humble site....

Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!

Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.

Nogizaka46: A little of this and that for 2016 #33....

 Haven't seen any 2016 Halloween cards released yet so wonder if there will be any, if not here's a few oldies to sort of, er, creep you out!?

 Think it's impossible to be creeped out by any Nogi member, especially the bottom one but if you are in need of medical assistance....

 Just a little over seventeen days until "Sayonara no Imi" will be released. There are five versions of the single, think as usual you have to buy four of them to get every song and video. Here are the covers and the center has her own.

 You never find Nogi PV's on YT or probably any other video channel as their company which is Sony doesn't allow them. However you can always find their TV appearances or concert videos on YT so when the group performs the song for the first time on TV will post that video here. First time on a music show will be this Friday on NTV's Halloween Special.
 At the bottom of this post have a video with a short clip of the PV as four members made an appearance on Friday's ZIP! show plugging the new single. Their last few singles have had some tie-ins with many companies which resulted in quite a few promo pics, videos and promo event appearances but haven't heard any kind of campaign for this song. Just one new mag spread for this post but it's a fine with that features Sayuri from the December issue of Brody.

 No other new happening for the group when you need some pics to fill a post up there's always blog ones. First off is Misa who doesn't do enough entries but when she does her pics are just dynamite such as that first one, WOW!!!! After her are five from Hinako and keep saying it but when there's another 'pairs post' hope to have the two of them as the pairs.

 Think of all the long time Senbatsu members Yumi is the one who you hear the least about or it has been that way for too many months though she is currently starring in a stage play. After her five pics are some from Nanase who rarely does an entry and a few of them are from May when she shot her photobook though the entry was done on October 3rd. After all of the pics is the video for the ZIP! show which happened two days ago.

Mayu Matsuoka: Few recent happenings....

 Been so busy lately with other posts completely forgot about Mayu who is in my top five for current actresses, she is just so incredibly adorable. Never did finish recapping her "Okodawari" drama that aired in the Spring, really recommended if you like totally wacky shows.

 Mayu has appeared in three dramas this year so taking a well deserved break, she's also been in three films that have been released this year. Lot of recent activities though these last few weeks even though she's not going to be in any more dramas or films this year. First thing is from a recent interview for YouPaper which is a Japanese website, it's also known as YouPress.

 Some recent pics promoting Furisode's 'coming of age' kimonos though Mayu's next b-day will be her 22nd, that will be happening on February 16th.

 More promo pics and these are for the Furryrate Autumn/Winter collection.

 Mayu's last series was "Aquarium Girl", seen her in six dramas and that's been the only one I didn't care too much for. On October 21st Mayu was at the Shinagawa Aquarium where she was the honorary day director and took a turn with the dolphins like she did in the drama. Pics here are from the event along with a video after them.
