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.

C-ute: The 'C-ute Singles series'- #26 "I Miss You/The Future"
Off the track for a moment but currently playing some Buono!, right now am playing their "Paris Collection" CD and before that their mini 2012 CD" Partenza". Both are quite good and actually a bit more rocking than C-ute, plenty of videos on YT if you want to check a few of their songs out. Airi was a member of the group or should I say still is though they haven't released any new music since 2012. They haven't officially broken up but that is quite a long time without any new music but have heard they may be doing some concerts in August.
Will be doing one post a week for this series, have eleven more to do as I'll be working backwards until their 15th single 'Campus Life". Think before then the members may have been too young so will stop with that single which came out in 2010 but we still have eleven more terrific singles to talk about and naturally listen to.
Not sure if either song was the A-side as this was one of those double A-side singles. This single came out on November 19, 2014 reaching #4 on the Oricon charts. The single sold about 63,000 copies which is the norm for them, wish one of their singles would get out of that rut and finally top the 100 K mark.
Few more covers of the single here followed by some member promo pics, not as many as they usually have but do have some mag spreads after them for the single.
The group used to appear in quite a few mags, hardly any this last year though and haven't seen any for their new single which comes out on April 20th. All are November 2014 spreads with six pics from Big One Girls and seven from Top Yell, have one more after these two.
Quite an A+ collection of pics here, especially Maimi's, from volume 22 of UTB+.
To end off have the PV's for each of the tunes and both are subbed in English.
