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!

Thanks for 1,000,000 views!

 Thanks all for helping this blog reach a million pageviews, Erika can put it best....

.... incredible is right and she gets much of the credit as there's a reason the blog is called what it is and wouldn't have started it if it wasn't for my #1 in Erika which long time viewers may have noticed.
 Never had a number which I was aiming for, figured when it got to 100,000 that was more than I ever thought would happen and then for some reason this place has became much popular, hopefully it's because most of the posts have been good and interests others. Hit the mark late Monday night or actually it was Tuesday morning, stayed up real late to catch that milestone so I could grab some screenshots of it. Also a bit shocked about who views this site, it's all in English yet 84% of the people who visit here are outside of the US, must be a lot of English speakers in those countries, doesn't matter where you're from though but thanks for all the visits you've done here!

Yui Yokoyama: 2014 magazine scans #3

 Just the third post for Yui's mag spreads this year which is a shame as her pictorials are always really superb, wish she was in more, bet a lot of other people wish that too. Would say that the first spread is terrific which it is but then again all the spreads here are, starting off with pics from Girls! volume 42.

 Another fabulous set of pics from the July issue of Entame.

 There were only three new spreads to post, with pics as fantastic as these that's why I had said above hard to believe Yui isn't in more mags, these here are from the September 2nd issue of Manga Action.

Nogizaka46: Happy birthday to Mai and HTC promo event pics

 Just a simple happy birthday to Mai who turns 22 on August 20th, still the 19th over where I am but it's noontime in Japan. This is about the 50th post she's been in the last year, not many pics of her that have come out that haven't been posted here, she's still by far the #1 in the group if you look at the amount of mag spreads she's been in plus all her variety show appearances. No new pics here but just some of my faves, Mai is truly one beautiful woman, not many females out here can top her.

 On August 19th the group attended a press conference for HTC as they're going to be 'ambassadors' for their new J Butterfly phone. There's also a bit of a tie-in with the phone and their next single which is coming out in October, no title for it yet, it's their 3rd single in the last 6 months and of course the other two easily topped the charts in it's first week out. Pics here are from the press conference along with some promo ones, after them is the new CM for the J Butterfly phone.
