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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Mina Oba: Magazine scans #11- One new brand plus some golden oldies....
SKE's 20th single "Kin no Ai, Gin no Ai" was released on August 17th. Of course it was #1 in it's first week out selling a bit over 251,000 copies, second week sales were 13,000. Impressive figures for most groups but not them as those first week sales were the lowest since their 5th single, also their previous single barely beat this one selling 257,000 copies. It's been a year since Rena's graduation, wonder if she meant more to the group then anyone thought?
Noticed a lack of SKE things for the last few months as there have been very few mag spreads and no new photobooks or anything along those lines. Being so quiet could be a factor too in why the sales have decreased so much.
For instance we definitely need many more Mina spreads, few other SKE members have some fine ones but none come close to topping her spreads. As a matter of fact very few Idols or anyone else can come close to topping Mina's pics which is why it's such a shame there aren't more of them. And obviously their management team doesn't read these posts as I and sure many others are still waiting for her first PB.
Just have one new mag spread for today but naturally it's an exhilarating set of pics from the September 9th issue of Young Animal. But because there's only this one new spread have a few oldies which haven't been posted before. Some of these pics say relax, that's an impossible thing to do viewing her pics, wowwwwwwwwwwww....................
Mina announced that the last AKB election was the last one she would participate in, hopefully that's not a hint of her graduating. She did finish #22 which was her best finish, this one pic is from the 'General Election' mag that came out for the voting.
Did one post for her pre-2014 spreads but so far that's been it for some of her much older mag appearances. Mina was born in April of 1992 which means she's plenty old enough and will be getting to all of those ancient ones starting with this set from the December 2010 issue of Bomb.
Other oldie for today is unfortunately a small spread but the pics are at least truly dazzling which are from WPB #25 2012.
