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!

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.

Mariko Shinoda: 'Mariko from the Vault' #5- 2011 mag scans

 Was checking and think to date there's been about 140 members who are or were in AKB. Thought the number would have been higher and that figure isn't including their other groups such as SKE or HKT. Considering that there's been so many members and that I'm an Idol and J-Pop fan there really hasn't been that many posts about the group. Have really only posted about six members.... Aki, Haruka, Haruna, Yuki, Yuko and of course the person who the the post is about. Guess I'm more of a fan of certain members versus being a fan of the group and those six do have some similar things about them. One is that they're a bit older, just one will be below the age of 25 this year and the other common thing is that all of them have been with or were with the group since the early days or the late 2000's.
 Will continue that discussion in the next 'from the vault' post, three of them are in that series so it's never long between posts. But I'm wrong saying that as it's been a while since the last Mariko post, think she's just had one in the last two months and that was for a new stupendous Young Jump spread. For some strange reason she popped in my mind during the day at work and haven't been able to get her out if my mind since then, actually she's kind of a pleasant thing to stick in your mind.
 Time to revive Mariko's 'vault series', did four posts back in November for it and stopped for some reason Even though at times I say there's not many new things to post about there must be as series like this one tend to get put on the back burner because there's so many other things to post about. Most of her spreads from mid-2012 are here and will finish that year off eventually but there's zero mag spreads prior to that year. 2011 was an exceptionally good year for her mag spreads and there should be 3-4 posts for the year. First set is from the June 20th issue of WPB.









 Another WPB spread which was from issue #44, it was actually an AKB spread but there were some truly fabulous(as usual) pics of Mariko.








 This and the above spread were promoting her 2011 photobook "Mariko Magazine", have posted that PB here and it's chick full of jaw-dropping pics. This set is from the November 4th issue of Friday.






 Usually like to save the best for last but is there anything less then 'best' when it concerns Mariko? Last collection of pics for this post is from Young Jump #22-23.
