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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Mirei Kiritani: Mirei from the Vault #5- two 2011 promo events
That above pic is new as for the fourth year in a row Mirei was chosen as one of the 100 most beautiful faces in the world by TC Candler. They've had their list for quite a few years now, on their ranking Mirei finished in the #31 spot which was a bit lower than last year. Think we had it more correct here as she was chosen #5 here for my top females of 2015, obviously that place doesn't visit here enough!
Think Mirei finishing in the fifth position in my 'top ten list' was probably the right decision but still unsure whether she should have been at least one spot higher, as I had mentioned in yesterdays' post she could have been in any spot between one and six. Felt a bit guilty about that so thought I'd resume her 'from the vault' series, though this is only the fifth post for it there could be more as many posts could have been labeled that way, perhaps I'll go back and edit those posts.
Have two promo event from 2011 today, think most of her older mag spreads are already here along with all of her photobooks. And a photobook is what Mirei was promoting here back on February 2, 2011 as it was a fan signing event for her second PB "Mirei-san no Seikatsu Super". It was of course one fabulous set of pics and if you search for it you'll find the entire PB posted here. Looked for a video of the event but perhaps because it took place so long ago there was nothing on YT, least these pics are so terrific it may make up for it.
2011 was one of Mirei's busier years, quite a few promo events plus she had I think four movies that were released so will be working on future posts for them. On August 2nd she was at the 10th anniversary celebration for Acecook and also promoting a new CM for them. Once again couldn't find a video of the event but after the pics is an Acecook CM, the other video isn't from them but when you have that pair together think it's what you call a must watch.
