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.

Kyoko Fukada: "Fugoh Keiji" drama screenshots
Not going to review this drama yet but seeing as how I just started posting about Kyoko again didn't want to go too long between posts. First bought the DVD set of this series about seven years ago and really was looking forward to watching it as back then Kyoko was near the top of my fave list. However those DVD's had some of the worst subs ever done in the history of subbing so never really ended up watching it because of that. Did skim through most of the episodes and it looked like a good series plus the star of the show looked a million times better than good....
So after that debacle kind of forgot about the series, even when I did remember that it needed a view there was always seemingly a better drama that needed to be watched. Have finally got the whole drama with some good subs so just started on it today and after two episodes knew I made a mistake forgetting about it.
Have noticed a lot of Kyoko's detractor's biggest problem with her is when she does these 'ditzy' roles, to me though she's suited to do those best. So far she's been solid in this series, also thought her role in "Remote" was quite good and of course that ditzy side of Kyoko in "Kamikaze Girls" has gone on to be her most known role. She does a good job in the more serious roles but guess it's a personal preference but I kind of like these lighthearted parts she plays so much better.
This post is kind of a 'warning' of what's coming up soon, still have eight episodes to go so it'll be a while until I post about the whole drama. Just thought a few Kyoko fans would like to see more pics of her and here's some screenshots from the first episode. Briefly she plays Miwako who is the granddaughter of a billionaire who has managed to get her a position on the police force as a detective. None of the other detectives except for one like her at all and try to get her to quit but though she appears to be a rich, spoiled girl Miwako always ends up solving the cases. This series was a quite popular when it came out in 2005, so popular that there was a second season.
