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...Rena Takeda... Miyu Kitamuki... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... Nanase Nishino!.... 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!

Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.

Few tidbits....
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.

The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films. That means you won't find those types of posts here any more which means you'll have to go there for posts featuring Erika Toda, Mio Imada, Tsubasa Honda, Park Min-Young and many others.

Rena Takeda: Two new mag spreads but not too much more....


 Knew Rena's last post would be popular and it is as it's already one of the top ten most viewed posts for the past month, finally someone has cracked the '46' fortress. But the top two most viewed posts are from two years ago(!) and guess they deserve to me as they do consist of some unbelievable pics. Nice to see that during my cold stretch viewers are doing some searching for older posts and there really are so many to check out, especially if you're Nogi fans. Also Rena fans too as I still think she's the most popular gal here, have only been posting about her for about two years yet this is already her post 55th.


 Rena is going to be turning 22 on July 27th, that's a very unique date here as two other faves of mine that celebrate turning a year older then too. Here's one of them that shares the date and right now she has the inside track of being my #1 for the year....


.... just hope this year's party is as much uh, er, um, guess fun would have to be the word as I'd rather not get into the details....


 When i said 'not much more at the top it's true as Rena hasn't done much this year. Actually that's not quite true as she has been in two dramas and one is currently airing. That's the second season of 'Video Girl: Ai', first season was enjoyable enough though quite innocent. This second season looks like it's shed it's innocence along with Rena's clothes(!), was going to skip this season but perhaps not and can't believe a Nogi member has the lead role in a show that has these kinds of scenes!








 Rena had a scene similar to that in the "Million Yen Women" drama too. On to the pair of spreads and truly wish there were more, bet when the current drama ends we'll be seeing more of them. Will have the smaller set first which is from the April 29th edition of WPB.






 Other spread is also from WPB and how many times has Rena had a feature in their mag? She also has had too many covers to count and once again does for their April 15th issue. Last post had a huge WPB-Net pictorial and for that don't think there was this video posted from the photo shoot, even if it was sure many would want to view it again.














Miwako Kakei: 'Friday Digital photobook' scans from October....



 Here'someone who hasn't had a post in ages and there's only myself to blame. Been moaning a bit about how slow it's been recently for gravure models and Idols, that's still true but have had this set since March and somehow forgot all about it. Think Miwako has had some other activities lately too so she could be in line for a few posts. My list of faves has grown so much since day one I tend to overlook people like Miwako who I do like quite a bit, she does have a fabulous body but is also a decent actress and an intelligent woman. Hopefully separating actresses from Idols and models will help me not overlook many in the future and it's already working out well for both blogs.


 What I also missed was Miwako's birthday as she turned 25 on March 6th, there's just so many faves of mine who were born in March for some reason. Miwako had so many tremendous photobooks from 2012 to the beginning of 2017 then she slowed down on her gravure work to concentrate on her acting career which is slowly getting better. That this PB came out is a surprise as I thought she had retired from doing them and these Friday Digital books are always superb. This PB was released last October 19th and has 61 pics for all fans to enjoy. She's also in a drama currently airing titled "Your Turn to Kill" which looks to be a promising show, besides her another reason to watch it is because Nanase also stars in it.
