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.

C-ute: 29th single promo pics and info
C-ute's 29th major single is coming out on April 20th, the A-side is titled "Naze Hito wa Arasoun Darou" which means Why do people fight? The other two songs on the single are titled "Summer Wind" and "Jinsei wa Step!" aka Life is Step! Most of the other very popular J-Pop groups such as AKB and Nogi have put out singles this month plus SKE's next one comes out on March 30th.
Mention that as it might help out sales for the single with no major competitors releasing a one around the April 20th date. The group's singles usually end up being in the top five for it's first week out, they sell an okay amount but it'd be nice if they could eventually step up the sales a little bit such as breaking the 100,000 copies sold mark.
This post gave me a good idea is to perhaps devote one for the group's other singles. Have quite a few pics for most of them such as the covers, cards and other promo materials so think that'll be a series starting real soon. Will just go back to their 2010 single "Campus Life" which is the song that got me hooked on them, think the members may have been a bit too young on the singles prior to that one. Will be working backwards so the first post will be featuring single #28 "Atigatou~Mugen no Yell", won't be starting the series for about a week though.
The gals are really looking grown up on the single's cover and promo pics. It's only natural them looking grownup as they're now all in their 20's and four of the members hit that mark a few years back. There is a short PV out for 'Naze Hito', haven't listened to it yet and probably won't as it's less than 2 minutes long. Will wait until the full version is released before listening to it, will post it here when it comes out which should be very soon.
Lot of early promo pics already for the single, have heard there's also going to be a few events for the single at the end of April. The single comes in three editions or four as you can buy all three of them in a boxed set. The deluxe editions come with some lottery cards where some lucky winners will get a chance to attend one of those promo events.
Even more promo pics here for the single to end this post off and for a change have switched the order of the pics. Don't know if anyone has noticed but always have posted in order of my fave members, will have the order like my mind usually is and have them mixed up. Not a huge amount of pics for each member, sure more will be released as it's still 3+ weeks until April 20th, in order there's Airi, Mai, Maimi, Saki and Chisato
