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.

Nogizaka46: A little of this and that for 2016 #2....
That's the lineup for the group's next single, can't say it's a disappointing one but there's never any suspense in who the members are going to be. Their last single had 16 Senbatsu members, all of them will once again appear on the new single but they did add one new member. After being dropped from being a Senbatsu Miona has returned as the 17th member for the single, was kind of hoping Seira would make it as she'll be graduating soon. Not much more to add in about the selection, think a few other fans are a tad disappointed in the lineup but the problem is that even though we may want to see more new faces who do you drop?
That single isn't coming out until March 23rd so sure we'll be hearing much more news about it, the name of the song hasn't been released yet. Have two new mag spreads today, hasn't been too many recently and gracing the pages of the new issue of EX-Taishu is Sayuri which is her first solo spread in a while.
Quite a fabulous Nanase spread here from the March issue of Entame.
Last item is something a bit different as Nanami will be appearing in a new drama called "Nogizaka46 Nanami Hashimoto Koisuru Bungaku", start date for it is February 19th. The show will be airing on UHB 8 which is the Hokkaido Cultural Channel, there will be one episode a week up until March 18th. News of it just came out so don't have all the details but it has something to do with promoting Hokkaido and from what I can tell the episodes are based on stories or novels by some famous authors about Hokkaido. Will have more details once they come out but here's two promo videos for the show.
