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...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... 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.

Erika Toda: "I Love You" 2013 UULA movie screenshots


Erika Toda as Chiho
Gaku Hamada as Yuuki
Nobuaki Kaneko as Togashi
Yoko Mitsuya as Meiko
Anne Suzuki as Yuuki's older sister

This short 51 minute film aired last July but just found a copy after a long search a few days ago. Naturally it wasn't subbed, some films/shows you can get away without subs but unfortunately this wasn't one of them. Really not going to give a review for it as I'm not sure exactly what happened in this movie, what I originally thought was the plot wasn't! But briefly Chiho(Erika) and Yuuki are a couple who spend the day at the zoo, on occasion they also spend time there with their friends Togashi and Meiko.
 There were a lot of flashbacks with Yuuki with another woman, I had thought she was his ex-girlfriend who traveled to the North Pole but actually it was his sister, thought he had picked up Chiho on the rebound. So really what happens is the pair spend the day wandering around the zoo and talking, think they were having some sort of problems but not sure what they were but it appears as by the end of the short movie those problems were resolved. A big part of the movie had to deal with polar bears, Yuuki's sister had gone to the North Pole to see them and there's a lot of flashbacks of her there with a polar bear. Seems as though Chiho also likes them as she visited their site at the zoo on a couple of occasions.
 And that's really all I'm going to say about the film, think if I tried to describe more of what happened it'd be wrong plus I really was at a loss of what was truly going on. The actual title of the movie was "Toumei Pora Bea", toumei can mean innocent or pure which I think was referring to Yuuki's sister and not Chiho, this was the first of three movies that aired on UULA, "I Love You" was the trilogy's name. Oh well, not  a lot of info here but was still glad I got a chance to watch it, been ages since Erika has been in anything and hopefully that will be changing soon, some screenshots of her from the movie and as usual or at least to me she simply looks too good to believe.
