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!
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.

Nogizaka46: The "Pairs" post #6- birthday girl(!) Mai Shiraishi and....
Actually Mai's 24th b-day doesn't happen until tomorrow but may not be around for it. That above pic is from over three years ago as her looks have really changed over the years, especially compared to her pics from 2011 when the group was started. Just occurred to me now that the 'official anniversary' of the group will be on the 22nd as on that date back in 2011 the first 36 members were chosen.
Not going to have a special post for her b-day, no new pics plus as you know have just started on my 'Top ten fave member list'. Mai has definitely has made the cut so she'll have an extra big post coming up for that. Few more solo pics before she's joined by someone else.
Been a while since I've done one of these 'pairs' posts so thought this would be a good idea for a mini celebration, wonder what lucky member will have the honor?
Gulp, wonder what the words were after 'then I'll'? Would like to find out so looks like for Mai's fourth appearance in a 'pairs' post she may have her best partner yet.
Sure you all know these battery mates from the "Hatsumori Bemars" drama, have said other pairs are hard to top but this duo may just be able to do that!
Of course joining Mai today is Misa, she's another member who will be upcoming in my 'Top ten fave member list' and she's going to rank right near the top. What I've noticed is that she appeared so often with the departed Mai F. in things, that pair may have more pics together than any other duo. Forget what number episode of 'NOGIBINGO!' this was but it's been one of their better shows as there was a cooking competition. Three teams were involved with the winning team being the 'M Team' consisting of Mai, Mai and Misa. Actually Misa impressed me and almost everyone on the set with her culinary skills.
For a long time have been wishing for a Misa solo photobook, naturally Mai has had one and she was the first member to have a PB. Nothing more to add except hope you'll enjoy these dazzling pics from this stunning pair, actually a PB with just the two of them would be a nice idea and unfortunately there's no video out there that just features the two of them.
