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.

Mariko Shinoda: 2016 magazine scans #2
Mariko just had a photobook released last Thursday titled "Memories". It's not quite a new PB as it's a greatest hits collection from Young Jump magazine featuring all of her spreads that she's appeared in. Think there's some new outtake pics though but even if we've seen most of the pics it's kind of nice to have them all together, hopefully will have those scans for you soon.
Mariko will also be starring in a film coming out on April 29th called 'TerraFormers", it's a sci-fi movie based upon a manga, Should be back then Sunday with some pics from it's premiere plus also have a few other recent happenings to post about. Also will be doing a post or two soon for her 2015 movie 'Tag" which was quite a view, recommended if you like wackiness.
As that new PB has been put out by Young Jump it's only natural that Mariko appears in their new issue which she does, looks like a mix of new and old pics.
More is a monthly mag which Mariko appears in every month and has so for many years, here's her spread for the April issue.
Small spread from the new edition of WPB which is issue #19-20, looks like pics we've seen before but that bottom one could be her best ever. After the pics check out the trailer for the 'TerraFormers" film, has kind of a strange plot.
