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!.... Manami Higa!.... Maki Horikita!.... Miori Takimoto!.... 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!
August 28: For all the Miori fans here and hopefully she has many, just started a new blog for her and only her, it's called 'Miori no Sekai' and the link is in the Blogs I Follow section.
September 11: Also have started another blog which has taken a bit of my time away from this one, name of the blog is "Saki no Sekai", bit like the above one but kind of has a ring to it. It's all about Saki Fukuda, keep wishing her fan base would grow as she's right near the top of my all time fave. Link to it is in the Blogs I Follow section, already have more posts there than there are here of her and if you're a fan please come and check it out.

Just learned two days ago about this drama, the title is the same as the Japanese show but is the drama the same? Well for the most part it is, just watched the first episode and except for a few differences they are exactly the same. Main difference is that this drama is a public game, it's a new TV show that has recruited 40 contestants and like the original show the object is to try to cheat your opponent out of their money and to move on to another round. Have just watched the first episode so have no clue whether the whole series will remain similar to the Japanese version but unlike so many other Korean dramas this one I will finish, it's only going to be 12 episodes which is bearable.
Once I watch a few shows will be back with some recaps of this series and once it's done will compare the two, will be hard for this new drama to top the original one which is one of my all time faves. Coming into this post have had 263 Erika posts and something which just shocked me to no end is that there were zero posts here for either season of the drama! Have watched season 1 about 25 times and the second 10+ times yet for some strange reason there are no posts, that will have to be changed and will be starting on that soon, really shocked about that. Here's a few pics of Erika from the show but expect many, many hundreds more of them to be coming up, she's always looked #1 in my book but liked the way she looked back then just a tad more than these days.
And here's a few screenshots from episode one of the drama, lead actress in the show is Kim So Eun, have heard of her before this but have never seen her in anything. Kim looks good but not as good(who does?) as the original Nao, her character in the series is named Nam and the second episode has also just been subbed so hopefully will be back in a few days with some recaps of the first two episodes.
This book came out in June 2013, not sure what the occasion was as Sayumi didn't have a photobook that came out then, her next one "Blue Rose" came out in October. No complaints though as this is a superb set of pics, 71 in total and the rest are in the following post.
