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.

Haruka Shimazaki: Few recent happenings....

 Really needed a break from Nogi so zero posts today for the group, not tired of them but if I keep doing 2-3 posts a day then something like that could happen but of course it'd be a mild case. Haven't done too many posts for AKB members lately, not even ones for who have graduated. There was such a stretch of inactivity for my big faves but in the last month the opposite has happened and it's been tough keeping up with them and it's been about time.
 Haruka is definitely a big fave of mine, she's not my current favorite member of AKB but is awful close and with one graduation and perhaps more coming up she could end up in the top spot soon. AKB's next single will be their 45th one, it's coming out on August 31st and is titled "LOVE TRIP". I've been an AKB fan for a long time but these current singles don't do much for me, though I do still play their music most of the time it's the songs before 2013.
 That's no knock on Haruka though, wish they had more members like her or at least older ones. Not that Haruka is at all old as she's just 22 but in so many pics she could still pass for a teen. As far as Haruka pics go it's hard to beat these as on July 29th she was at the 'Girls Award Summer Festival. The event took place at the National Yoyogi Stadium's second gymnasium, that stadium is way too huge for an event like this. Shocked me that Nogi wasn't at the event as they're always at these Girls Awards show, perhaps they were but avoided all news from them today. Haruka really looks A+ in these pics, she was sick for a while earlier this year but appears to have recovered. There's also a video of the event, have that at the bottom of the post.

 Couple new Haruka mag spreads, first is from the July 9th Tokyo Date.

 Haruka's spreads this year have been much more conservative than her ones from previous years, wonder if it's because she lost so much weight when she was ill. However this is still a superb set of pics from the September issue of Samurai ELO.

 Not enough new Haruka pics but it's good to see her a bit more active and looking so much better, here's the video from the Girls Awards show.


  1. am i the only who thinks its weird that nao follows the anti kpop fangirl blog? haha :D

  2. There's no doubt I may be a tad weird but sure viewers have noticed that by now. I like AFK's site, learn a bit more about K-Pop plus it is a bit hilarious at times.
