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.

Yuu Kikkawa: Magazine scans #5 and fifth single video
Looks like this could be the end of the posts for Yuu's older mag spreads. Does say #5 at the top but if you include her four WBGC sets and one Bomb-TV set then it's much more than five posts, plus I'll bet the total for all of them is well over 700 pics. Really think(know) we need more new things from her as she truly looks better than ever, she has been keeping busy appearing on a lot of music shows and such but no new things such as a single have been announced.
These are some of the ones that were missed somehow from 2012-13, Yuu would have been 21 or 22 at the time of the pics as she was born in May 1991. First dynamite spread, sadly there aren't many, is from 2012 and issue #209 of UTB.
Quite a huge spread from Young Magazine that came out on October 22nd, 2012.
Last Yuu spread but if I missed these than could have missed others so will double check for more, this set is from issue #21 of Young Magazine from 2013.
'Darling no Madonna" was Yuu's fifth single and it was released on September 26, 2012. She had kind of a rough period with singles three through six, her first two singles reached the top ten while her next four barely cracked the top twenty. This one reached #18 on the Oricon charts, these days her singles sell much better but for some strange reason she had a slump in sales during that period. Strange because the songs were really good but that doesn't always guarantee a single is going to do well. Here are the covers for it and one of Yuu promoting it, following them is the PV for the single. It was also the ending song for the "Sengoku Collection" anime.
