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!.... Miori Takimoto.... Maki Horikita!.... Tsubasa Honda.... 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.

March 10th: Have just deleted those two blogs, they were getting quite a few visits but it was just a bit difficult keeping three blogs constantly updated. Did just post all the posts done from those two blogs here today and will start doing all posts for them in the future here.

Erika Toda: "Yokokuhan: The Pain" drama episode 4 screenshots

 Once again not going to give a long review for this episode and the reasons will be the same as episode, the main one is that it's not subbed but a better reason is that Erika will be in the final show as there's just a total of five of them. Am learning quite a bit more of what's going on though too many things still leave me perplexed such as why this Judge is leading this group called Shinbunshi and why they are doing the things they are doing. And why are they going after a certain group of criminals, are they some link to the past for the Judge?
 No other English site has been doing reviews on the drama so can't pick up any answers on the web, though it's a short drama but one with such an excellent cast would have thought it still may have been subbed. Erika plays a detective named Erika who was assigned to a special group to hunt down this renegade Judge, his underlings in every show will capture a criminal or someone who does not so good things in society.
 After their capture he remains a Judge though he is disguised, the 'trial' is broadcast on the 'net and viewers can have the chance to vote guilty or innocent. Think in the first episode the person on 'trial' was found innocent by the public, for some reason he stays with the Judge and joins the group. By this episode he's had a change of heart as he can't take these trials any more and leaves the group plus the police have finally made some headway into the case and they have found that he's a member of this underground group.
 This episode the criminal who was a stalker has he had a fetish for females who wore glasses was caught by the group before he could commit a crime and is found overwhelmingly guilty by the public. However the Judge had changed the trial's venue and though the police had found his original hideaway it was the wrong one as they watched in horror as the Judge killed this defendant. Right at the end of the show the Judge revealed his face finally, now it's up to Erika and the rest of the special detective group to find out what more he has planned.
 Guess that's not a horrible review though I admit that too much has been missed, really hoping that by watching the final episode some of my questions will be explained. Think I should also watch the first show again as I just skimmed through it, the final show aired last night. Will be back as soon as I get the final show with what should be a more detailed review and hopefully that'll be done within the week. Have been saying for 280+ posts how dazzling Erika looks, she truly is setting a new level in that department these days as my mouth may never rise again. Also her next drama "The God of Risk" starts this week, that 's one I'm surely watching and be ready for a few posts on it here.

Nogizaka46: 2015 magazine scans #36

 Just a few Nanami gifs to start off, the spread will be at the bottom but these kind of leave you speechless....

 Actually have so many spreads because of the lack of posting I've done this week perhaps it would have been better with two posts as this will be a very big one though there's nothing wrong with that. Have one more week of working this different schedule so will do a few posts during the upcoming week but probably not too many but things will be back to normal at the end of next week.
 Nanase has had more solo posts than any other member this year but haven't seen her in too many the last month or so but she made up for it with a fantastic set of pics from the Summer issue of +20 Sweet.

 Group spread from the August issue of BLT.

 Another August issue which features the undergirls Iori and Kotoko, this set is from Entame.

 Flash magazine seems to have a lot of 'special' issues, this spread is from their "2015 Summer Best" mag which has Rina in a solo spread followed by one with Manatsu and Himeka.

 Just two pages sadly for Sayuri from volume 003 of Overture, need more spreads of her.

 It is that time for August issues and this Mai Ray spread is from that month.

 Turning into a fairly huge post, another August from EX-Taishu featuring many members.

 Saved the best for last as this is one of the group's top spreads ever as Mai and Nanami look more jaw-dropping than ever in Big Comic Spirits #31. There's also a 'making of' video which has been on YT for over a week so it shouldn't be taken down any time soon, also some screenshots from it which is followed by the video.
