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: Maimi Yajima H!P Summer cards
Sigh, she really knows how to hurt a guy as it's true that I've been slacking off on C-ute lately....
.... least I'm somewhat forgiven by one member, promise to get back on track real soon. Sadly it looks like another year with only two C-ute singles unless they release one next month but haven't heard any news of that.
Last year there were just two of them which means just four new singles for 2015-16, that's presuming they'll have one more this year. For 2013-14 they had seven singles, the group isn't doing many more outside activities so wonder why there's been such a decrease? What's confusing about that is the group is more popular than ever as far as sales go, they used to sell 40,000 or so copies of their singles while these days they all sell at least 65,000 copies.
Usually have all of the members in these H!P card posts but there's been so many that have been released the last month will just have Maimi's for this post. One other thing which I've mentioned on occasion is the lack of photobooks, the members used to put out so many of them and they were all solid sellers. Since the beginning of 2015 though Maimi is the only member to have a PB and that came out last August, really missing them as all of the books were quite superb.
