Some sites list Erika's birthplace as Dusseldorf while others list Japan, think she was born there but did spend most of her first five years in Germany. Most of this photobook was shot there as it was the first time she had gone back there in close to 14 years, sure growing up in Germany is what helped her become such an excellent piano player. There were a few singles that did feature her at the piano but it's been a while since we've seen a new song centered around her playing, wonder if becoming such a popular idol has slowed down her training.
Sure a few of you will like some of these pics better than the ones in the above post, honestly never thought Erika would look so stupendous in a swimsuit and as usual glad I'm wrong. Wish there were more of them but she certainly dazzles in those pics but even the conservative ones are quite good, we'll never see a member do a photobook like the ones so many gravure idols release but that's fine as being a bit conservative is part of the group's charm.
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.
