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!

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.... 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.

Emi Takei: Otemki Oneesan episode 7 screenshots and recap

 Two stories for the last episode, to be honest the crime case that needed to be solved and of course was by Haruko(Emi) wasn't enough of a mystery and it actually took away from the second story that was going on.

 The case revolved around a politician who was found dead in the bathroom of his mistress, it appeared as though he died from being electrocuted but the cause was actually a drowning. Haruko used her weather wisdom to deduce that because it had been lightning out the night before electricity had built up in the water and when he was going to the bathroom somehow the water had retained the electricity and he collapsed from the charge. However he wasn't dead but his wife had followed him and while he was still groggy had pushed his head into the toilet and drowned him. Haruko didn't figure out that it was the wife who had committed the murder, she actually confessed to it before the really investigated what could have happened, to be honest this was a boring case and could have been skipped, really didn't add much to the episode.

 At the end of episode 6 one of Haruko's co-workers on the morning news had been stalked by an ex-boyfriend who had just been hired by the station, the announcer Akane went to Haruko for help but for some strange reason Haruko declined to help her, never came out why. Haruko knew though that there was something very sinister about Akane's stalker but didn't tell anyone, shortly after all this Akane was kidnapped by the ex-boyfriend and he was planning a double suicide for them if she wouldn't marry him. Well of course she wouldn't but even though tied up she managed to escape and luckily for her Haruko had told her detective friend Aoki about the kidnap and both were there to save her, what really saved her was a lightning bolt hitting the tree the stalker was under leaving him quite hurt but he somehow managed to survive.

 All in all an okay episode, not as interesting nor suspenseful as some of the previous shows but it was still an enjoyable watch as every show has been to date in this series. Not sure if there's 3 or 4 episodes left, but one thing that needs to come out is a bit about Haruko's past, she has some deep mystery about her and think it'll eventually come out, seems as though her younger days were not pleasant ones. As we always do here's some screenshots of Emi from this episode, nay make it easier to follow as I don't like to give away every single thing that happened in a show.

























Erena Ono: 2013 magazine scans #1

 Another newbie here as we're really raiding the vaults, Erena was always among my faves when she was in AKB, was a real shame when she left and you did hear a bit about her but not as much. However she's been much more active these last few months, she currently has the lead role in the Tank Top Fighter late night drama and also has a new single coming out on June 29th. Have a few mag spreads here, not all that many but Erena really makes up for the lack of quantity with some terrific quality, starting off are these from the April 30th issue of Weekly Ascii.





 Weekly Playboy #21.








 June issue of BLT.



  Young Magazine #25.




To end off this spread was from last year but is just a really incredible set of pics, from the October 26, 2012 issue of Young Gangan.









Yui Aragaki: Girls Locks! radio show pics #2.... January to March 2012

 Been wanting to start these for a while but like too many things don't get around to it, actually there's going to be so many posts been using that as an excuse. Gakky had the longest stretch of being a host for this show, she started in 2007 and continued until March of 2012 so the bottom pics here are from her final week. Going to do this backwards, starting from the newest shows and going back like that, most of the previous posts I've done for the show have been popular such as the ones for Erika and Maki, they were also hosts for the show though not as nearly as long as Gakky was.
