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!
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.

Mirei Kiritani: "Sumika Sumire" drama episode one screenshots and smallish recap
Was right in saying this was an easy drama to find but now the question is will it be subbed? Haven't heard any news of it but really think it will be so just going to give a very mini recap of what happened in the first show and a much longer one when the subs come out. Actually it was kind of an easy show to follow without them, sure I missed a few things but for the most part really grasped most of what happened.
Only watched the first 1/2 hour of this 48 minute show, figured there was no sense in watching it twice as another watch will be happening. Mirei didn't appear until the 11 minute mark, first part of the episode was showing what kind of life her 65 year old self was living.
The main story line in the series is about Sumire and how one day she transformed from someone who is 65 into a twenty year old female. The older Sumire has lived her entire live as a single, never getting married nor going to college though she had wanted to. Her entire life had been dedicated to running her family's small shop and farm along with taking care of her parents and grandmother.
Shortly after the show opens Sumire's mother passes away leaving her all alone in the world. Sumire then finds an old family painting hidden away, a painting of a black cat. Soon after discovering the painting the cat somehow transfers into a man named Rei and asks what Sumire's ultimate wish is, she replies that she would like to live her life over again.
And pooof!, Rei is able to grant Sumire her wish and she's suddenly a twenty year old again, a fairly stunning woman I might add too. As noted it was easy enough to follow with the subs but there are a few things I'm not sure of. One is about Rei, after he makes Sumire a twenty year old he stays around her house, think he'll be living with her but for how long I'm unsure about, perhaps as long as she stays a young woman? Also there was this nosy neighbor of Sumire's who kept coming over, not much clue about why she's constantly prying into Sumire's life but sure with subs I'll be able to explain it in the next post.
Final scene I viewed dealt with Sumire thinking about finally going to college, she visits the campus but things don't go so well. Sumire is still dressing like a woman of 65 would, most of the other females at the campus were laughing at her attire. However it appears that Sumire was able to put that behind her and I think was able to enroll at the school as the last thing I watched was her in a classroom.
Am planning on coming back later on this week with a more thorough recap, hopefully I'm not wrong thinking this series will be subbed. Seemed like a fairly good start to the drama, even without subs will continue to watch and post about it. Plenty of enticing Mirei screenshots here from the show, even though she didn't appear until the 11 minute mark, she's constantly leaving me(all of us) speechless.... After the screenshots check out a short promo for the second episode.
