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.

Mariko Shinoda: "Memories" photobook scans #1
This is by far the biggest photobook I've posted here, usually filter put some of the pics to fit them into two posts but decided to leave all 248 pics. So that means four posts with 62 in each of them, today will be posting the first 124 pics, Wednesdays are kind of a slow day so will do the remaining 124 pics then.
Like the idea behind the PB as it consists of all of Mariko's pics from Young Jump the last six years, guess you could call it her greatest hits(pics). Don't think there's been another photobook that has done that or at least I don't recall there being any. This book did make #1 in it's first week out on the book charts selling about 9,700 copies, hopefully a few mags noticed that and will out out their own books that are similar to this theme.
These pics have no order to them, least I don't think there is nor are the spreads together. That's fine with me as it's kind of better looking at them out of order and these 248 pics may comprise the best PB ever put out to date. Let's get to the pics as there are so many of them, 62 in this and the next post, words aren't good enough to describe how magnificent Mariko looks in all of these.
