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.

Nogizaka46: Happy 20th birthday to Marika Ito!!!!
We all know what main member is celebrating a b-day on the 20th but Marika is also turning another year older tomorrow, appropriately she's turning twenty. Though this is her Marika's first solo post she has been in too many other posts to count, would think all her mag spreads, cards and blog pics from the last year are here. As a matter of fact her blog may be the best of all of the members as she updates it almost every day and usually with many pics.
May sound kind of funny but one of the endearing things about Marika is how infrequently she smiles, don't think she's a dour person but may appear so compared to the other members. There are some pics here of her smiling but it doesn't happen too often, especially on their TV shows but it hasn't hurt her career as she's been a Senbatsu for quite a while.
Have a little bit of everything here, some of these pics are new while some aren't. This first set of Marika pics is new here though it first came out in November 2013 and this fine collection is from Natalie's 'Power Push' series, wish they would revive it.
On January 8th Marika held her 'coming of age ceremony' along with two other members, of course it was held at the Nogi Shrine.
Just a few superb random Marika pics here, she actually smiles in a few of them.
Had forgotten about this movie, think it may be out on DVD know so will go hunt it down. The film is "Eyes" which came out last June with Marika having the lead in it, it's a horror film and by the trailer looks to be promising. Have mentioned this before but have you noticed when Idols star in films they're almost always horror ones? Here's the trailer for the film, as a bonus after that check out her promo video for volume three of Nogizaka Quarterly.
