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.

Nogizaka46: Nanami Hashimoto "Bad Boys J" drama screenshots ep's 1-4
Not going to give much of a review for the drama here, perhaps I will when it's finished. Really just watching this series because of Nanami, actually not taking too many screenshots nor having to do up a review and just watching a drama is something I don't do too often, kind of like just kicking back and watching a show. Of course when Nanami comes on the screen it's a different story, wish there were screenshots but her role is just medium sized, episodes are 22+ minutes and she probably appears for about 5 minutes.
Very briefly the drama is about a bunch of gangs in Hiroshima, the show focuses around one gang more than all the others and that gang is called "Gokuraku Cho". And most of the series is focused on one member who is the newest one and was installed as the leader right off the bat. The new leader of "Gokuraku Cho" is Tsukasa and the main reason he ended up joining the gang is that he has a huge crush on a waitress who works at the local cafe, her name is Kumi(Nanami). Tsukasa is too shy to speak to her and ask her out but one day he sees her being bullied by the gang leader of "Gokuraku Cho" and though he appears to be a bit of a weakling he stands up to the leader to protect her.
Tsukasa isn't a weakling and beats the leader who was much bigger than him, he figured Kumi would fall head over heels for him then but here was one problem.... the leader wasn't bullying Kumi, he was actually her brother. But by beating the leader Tsukasa was recruited into the gang and was made the leader immediately. That all took place in the first episode, episodes two through four all had the same theme which was a gang kept appearing to defeat "Gokuraku Cho" but though they're a small gang none of them could beat them, not even Hiroshima's largest gang "Beast".
That's enough of a recap/synopsis of what's happened for the first 4 episodes, as I mentioned just watching this for the enjoyment and so far it's been an okay watch, have no clue what's going to happen or how it's going to end up. But of course the main reason for the watch is because of the fabulous Nanami who looks so, so kawaii in this show, wish she would appear in another drama as she was in two of them back in 2013 but nine since though she does have a movie coming out next month. Enjoy these screenshots, the drama is 12 episodes so will be back with two more posts for episodes 5-8 and 9-12.
