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.

Lot more posts than usual recently for Hello! Project groups and there should be another one or two for C-ute coming up as they released their final single today. Rarely do posts for Morning Musume though except for the stupendous gal featured today, they have such a revolving door of members and with 63 singles not sure where to start.
Their current single "Brand New Morning" was released on March 8th, it's sold over 85,000 copies since then which is about par for them and it was #2 on the Oricon charts it's first week out, The group also had a track on AKB's last single "Thumbnail", they changed their name to Sashining Musume for their song "Get You!". Seems kind of odd that they would appear on an AKB single but they'll do anything these days to keep their single sales over a million.
Two months in a row for Mizuki as the 'H!P Digital Gal of the Month'. That's an honor you usually see bestowed upon someone who has a new photobook but that hasn't been the case recently. These are outtakes form Mizuki's second PB "Utakata", she's way overdue for another book but have a feeling once the graduation of C-ute happens we'll be seeing her fourth PB.
Almost always break these sets down into two posts, the collections are divided into four weeks as you'll be able to notice. Not so today as the whole set will be in this one post, there's a little over eighty pics. Mizuki naturally looks beyond superb in all of these pics but do have to admit this is one of their more conservative collections. This being the second month for outtakes from the PB perhaps they ran out of the most alluring pics and alluring is an apt description for Mizuki who celebrated her sixth anniversary with MM back in January.
