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.

Rena Matsui: 2016 news #1 and a few older mag spreads....
Really need to increase the Rena post count around here, true she hasn't been overly busy since her graduation but there's been a few recent things and I think more projects will be happening soon. Plus there's a few older things I can post about, all her mag spreads from 2013-2015 are complete here but will be working backwards on the missed ones and have a few from 2012 today.
Rena just missed out on my 'top ten fave' list, would probably have her in the #12 or 13 position. Though that list came out fairly good do have my doubts about the 8-10 positions, perhaps if I didn't take a mini vacation from posting about her she would have made the top ten. Still working on that list for the 11th through 20th positions, making lists are not as easy as they seem.
Rena has had a 'Official Fan Site' for a while but her and whoever updates are finally getting around to making it current as there's plenty of news there, all of it though is in Japanese. Rena had her first fan mag come out on January 8th and here's the cover, also some screenshots from the site and here's the address which you can copy into your browser: matsuirena.club
Rena will also be in her first regular drama which is called "Mr. Nietzsche in the Convenience Store". Not sure of the start date but think it's this Thursday, it'll be airing on NTV but going through the shows site think it'll also be airing on Hulu. Once again here's an address which is for the drama's website plus some pics of Rena from an interview for the show: ni-chesensei.com
Rena will also be in another January drama called "Detective Ballerino", don't have much info on it yet but will soon as I'll do another post for her this week. As mentioned above do have all her mag spreads from the last three years but none prior to 2013 so will be working on having everything complete here. First few posts of the older spreads will be from 2012 and have two of them today with the first one being from WPB #25, really one of her best spreads ever.
Actually this spread is close to being as terrific as the above set of pics, final Rena thing for the day is from the May 25th issue of Friday.
