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.

Yui Aragaki: New drama news....

 This is the 209th day of the year yet only the third post for new happenings. That's one post about every seventy days which is such a sad ratio but there is news on a....

 Don't know how it's happening but lately my faves all seem to be able to hack into my posts as I'm doing them. May have to check for hidden cameras in this room, thought the two I found in the shower were the only ones.
 Kyoko(?) is correct as there will be a new drama starring Gakky after an absence of a year. Title of the series is "Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu", bet not even Japanese can say that fast five times. The drama will be starting up in October, no date on when it'll officially begin but it will be airing on Tuesday nights.
 Plot is a bit thin but it's based upon a award winning manga so perhaps the mini description I found doesn't do it justice. Story is about Mikuri who is an unemployed 25 year old woman, she's that way even though she has a graduate degree. Mikuri finds a job as a housekeeper(with a graduate degree??) and somehow ends up getting married to the man of the household who is a decade older than she is.
 Sounds like one of those lighthearted romantic dramas, the kind that's hit or miss. Seems as though there's no middle ground for those kinds of series, they're either quite good or quite bad though most tend to the latter. However seeing as it stars Gakky will end watching it, the dramas she has the lead in are always okay but none has been a real winner or must watch, personally would like to see her do more serious roles.
 The drama will be airing on TBS, she's had many shows for that network but it's her first one with them in over three years. News of this has just come out in the last 24 hours so naturally there's very little to post now but here are a few early promo pics for the drama.

 There was also a mini segment on yesterday's Hayadoki show for the series.

 That drama news is really it for new things, what a quiet year for her so far. There is one new CM though which came out last week for Nissin, video has the 15 and 30 second versions.


  1. Still waiting for Legal High 3 here haha.

  2. Thanks for your post. Could you tell me where you get the TV show videos? :(

  3. Wonder if a third season is a possibility, ratings were over 18% for season two so though it may be a long shot wouldn't bet against it, perhaps another TV movie or two is more likely. If you search the internet it's easy to come up with pics like the ones posted, actually that video was on YT but like many of the ones there you had better watch or download it fast as they're not there for too long.
