Mariko is doing a one time reunion with many other AKB graduates as she'll be appearing on their next single "Kimi wa Melody" which comes out on March 9th. The reunion is because it's the 10th anniversary of the group's first single, there's still three members who were on that single who are still with the group. Mariko doesn't exactly have the best singing voice which may be why she never was the center of any A-side single though her "Ue kara Mariko" song is one of my faves, that did end up being a single because she won their 2011 Janken tournament. On to the remaining pics and it's a shame it's the end of these VYJ spreads but there should be many other things still out there to keep her 'from the vault' series going.
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.
