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... Erina Mano... 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.

Kasumi Arimura and Masami Nagasawa: 39th 'Japan Academy Awards' pics
Decided to put these two fabulous females together as we should be seeing them so much of them in the next two months. On April 23rd "I Am A Hero" will be released and as you can see by the above poster when you have two female leads such as them then that film will certainly be a must watch. Will be posting more about soon I would think as there should be a few promo events and screenings for it happening shortly.
Both were in attendance on March 4th at the 39th 'Japan Academy Awards' ceremony, very few times in history as anyone topped Masami at an event but think Kasumi may just have done it!
The pair were once again nominated for awards and sadly both didn't win one. Masami was up for 'Best Supporting Actress' for her role in the "Umimachi Diary" film, she had won 3-4 awards for her role prior to this show but surprisingly this time someone else took the honors.
Kasumi too failed to win the 'Best Actress' award again for her role in the "Biri Girl" movie, she had already won a few awards already for it and I highly recommend that movie as it was one of the best for 2015. Don't know why but what she won was a 'Rookie of the Year' award, she's been around so long why would she win something like that?
Been checking but couldn't find a video for the event, it did just take place today so perhaps that's the reason. If a video of the show does come out tomorrow will be back and post one or two of them along with many more pics from the ceremony.
