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.

Haruka Shimazaki: "Haunted Campus" film screening pics and movie trailer
Shame this is only Haruka's second post of the year here, she is one AKB member who I still really like. Don't think it's Haruka's fault for her inactivity, she's had certain health problems over the years and know she was sick for a while at the beginning of this year. Her main problems are that that she has asthma plus some other breathing ailments, must be tough for her on stage as Idols really do quite a bit of dancing.
Haruka did find the energy though to film her second movie and she's had the lead role in both. As a matter of fact both of them have been horror movies, don't know the exact figure but it seems as though when an Idol appears in a film 80% of the time or more it's a horror one. Last year's movie "Ghost Theater" did okay at the box office, it did finish in the top ten it's first week out which is something you don't see too often which is a film with a J-Popper as the lead doing that well.
The official release for "Haunted Campus" will be this Saturday, on June 27th the film had it's first and probably only screening at the Shiodome in Tokyo. Surprised this screening took place so close to the release date, perhaps her health problems prevented them from screening it sooner.
Haruka looks fine in these pics, even a bit ill she looks better than most gals but perhaps not quite as good as she did two years ago as she doesn't look as alive as she usually does. No video of today's screening but there should be for it's premiere this Saturday and expect another post for that. No video as mentioned so after these pics have the film's trailer, Haruka does have two new mag spreads out so will be posting them soon and hopefully can find some more promo things of her for this film.
