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.

C-ute: June 20th Budokan pics
Don't know if it's still the case but remember when performing at Budokan meant you really made it, these days though seems so many J-Pop groups do so perhaps it doesn't mean as much. C-ute's first concert there was in 2013, besides this one they're also going to have another concert there in September. Are a few other new C-ute things but will hold off on them for a while, as is the norm these days most new things are for Airi.
Chisato celebrated her 22nd on June 21st, you'll see in some of the pics that they celebrated the occasion a day early and it appears as though none of it was scripted out and was a big surprise to her. Also she was supposed to have throat surgery as she has polyps on her vocal chords, think she's changed her mind on that right now and is hoping rest will cure them.
Hope that doesn't mean this is going to be another year with only two singles, their last one came out in April. Usually there's a 3-4 month gap between singles so if they were to release three this year then the next two would probably be released in August and November, it's a rarity when a single comes out in December.
On to some terrific pics from the group's June 20th concert which was the final one for their mini 'Concerto Tour'. They will be playing two shows next month but those will probably be their final shows until the Autumn, seems every year they do a tour in the Spring and Autumn. C-ute performed 25 of their songs at this concert, did all the songs you would expect but they're getting to the point where they need to drop a few of their better songs as they now have a huge catalogue of tunes.
