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.

Yuki Uchida: Two recent promo events for her new dramas
Had I done that 'top ten fave list' three or four years ago Yuki easily would have been on it, perhaps she would have had a spot in the top five. Not that she's faded just that few others have risen up plus I haven't watched any of her recent dramas but that'll soon come to an end. Been thinking of creating another list for positions 11-20 or at least a post on some of my faves who just missed the top ten, she would definitely be on that list.
Yuki has been in quite a few dramas this last decade, most of them have really been quite good or at least her ones up until 2013. She never has the lead in them but her role is always quite big, usually the second or third biggest. Think Yuki's last major lead role in a drama was "Big Wing", kind of hard to find these days but if you can find it that's a series that's highly recommended. However Yuki will be in two dramas(!) this season, she'll have the lead in one and the co-lead in the other which is why I plan on watching at least one of them.
One of them just started two nights ago, it's the series she has the lead in and it's called "Haburashi/Onna Tomodachi". Looks like a really interesting, mysterious drama and would really like to see it but the problem is that it's airing on NHK-BS, getting series from that station is very rare but am going to be searching high and low for it. On December 16th Yuki and two other members of the cast were at a press conference for the show.
Yuki's second Winter drama which she has the co-lead in is called "Naomi and Kaneko", it starts on January 14th and will be airing on Fuji-TV. Should be easy to get that series then so then it's just a question of whether it'll be subbed, have an inkling that it will as it looks like another dark, interesting drama. On January 7th Yuki and her co-star who you all know were at a press conference and screening for the show, wow has she retained her beauty! Er, actually she's probably improved on that beauty and after these fabulous pics check out a video of the event.
