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.

Nogizaka46: 2016 magazine scans #22

 Those expert photoshoppers are quite adept, they somehow managed to replace my pic with one of Erika.(blush, blush)

 If you're wondering if that's the first thing you notice when you walk into my residence.... keep wondering!!!!
 Single #14 "Harujion ga Saku Koro" is coming close to the 800,000 copies sold mark. Week three sales were only about 14,000 but that brings the total to 785,000 copies sold, think a million may be impossible to reach but as it stands now it's still by far the group's best selling single.
 Leading off is a smallish spread with birthday gal Himeka who turned 20 on April 13th, this set is from volume 114 of Marquee.

Asuka continues to lead all members with the amount of solo spreads this year, this may be her best to date from the May issue of EX-Taishu.

 Now on to some group spreads, trio of Undergirls here with Hina, Hina and Hinako.... will give an A+ for the person who thought of putting those three names in the same spread! This smallish set is from last week's issue of Flash.

 Last two spreads also feature trios and both are from volume 31 of UTB+, first set has Iori, Mai and Misa.

 Second UTB+ spread features Mai, Nanami and Sayuri. The trio did a song on the last single titled "Kyuushamen", there was a video for it which was a pretty cool view and have a few screenshots of it after the spread.


  1. hi.Where did you get Ikuchan's background pic?It looks like one of her pictures in her PB.An offshot?

  2. Kind of found it by accident, searching with her Kanji name 生田絵梨花 enables you to discover many Japanese sites.
