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.

Nao Kanzaki's top ten for 2015.... #3- Yuko Oshima

 Been having the 'top ten' awardee of the day the first post that you view but the post above this one is so fabulous think that deserved the top spot for the day, actually it deserves it for every day. That's no knock on Yuko who should be at the top, not only for today but coming close to that position on my all time list.
 Have never had a 'Woman of the Year' award here but if there was one Yuko would have easily taken it for 2015, she's simply something and in more ways than one. True so many of her pics are jaw-dropping as you'll soon see but think she has such a magnetic personality, that list of who I would want to share the rest of my life perhaps could boil down to her or perhaps her closest friend.
Done so many posts of her this year, 40 in the last ten months, there aren't too many new things to post about her but do have her fabulous 2016 calendar, even dressed casually she looks A-OK!

 Was thinking when I was making up this top ten list that there's no way Yuko won't be #1 next year, would like her to be but the woman in the above post I have to admit may be impossible to top. However a #2 position next year seems like it's in the cards and who knows what'll happen next year as she just may take that top spot. Haven't done too many Yuko posts lately but will be starting back again on her 'from the vault' series, trying to space those posts out as there's not an endless supply of pics or older things. Plus I don't think we'll be hearing too much from Yuko over the next few months though I hope we do so that's why the 'vault series' was given a breather.
 No dramas are in the works yet for next year though Yuko will be starring in a movie called "Sanada Ten Braves", not much info on that yet as it's not coming out until September. Yuko will also be appearing in her second stage play this Spring, can't recall the title of it right now but was reading about it last week and once more news comes out about will be posting about.
 Going to keep this post brief, kind of hard thinking of new things for Yuko or others when there's been so many posts about them here. As mentioned before haven't heard from many about my top ten to date, two more of them to list and would like to hear if you agree or not with my selections and it's fine if you don't as I realize my tastes aren't exactly like everyone else's. So to end off just superb Yuko pics and to be honest aren't 100% of her pics more than superb? After them are two videos, a newish CM from Minon that also has some behind the scenes shots plus Yuko's 1/48 photo shoot.


  1. Easily my #1, although my list of candidates is a good deal smaller than yours I imagine! Agree with the point you made a few posts back, I think leaving AKB was a good decision and has boosted her potential no end.

    Any idea if there's a subbed version of Yamegoku around? I managed to catch an episode while I was in Japan in June but I've been left in perpetual suspense ever since...

  2. Thanks for liking Yuko's position, really think she has a good chance to hit the top spot next year. As far as Yamegoku goes I've also been looking for subs and haven't found any which is kind of surprising considering her popularity.
