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.

Mina Oba: Magazine scans #12- Young Gangan 18 plus some oldies....
Been taking a while but think Mina is finally acquiring a few fans here, sadly I'll be running out of these older spreads to post. She was born in April of 1992 so we can go back a few more years, so far haven't posted many spreads prior to 2013 or least don't think so. Let's hope a Mina graduation isn't on the horizon as she said June's AKB elections would be her last one, she finished 22nd in the voting which is an impressive showing considering how many members there are.
If a graduation does happen next year there aren't going to be too many '48 Family' members left that I like, actually think SKE has more members I like than all of the other groups combined. Just this one new mag spread from Young Gangan #18 but it is a superb set of pics though not enough of them.... the bottom one could mean another sleepless night....
Mina has appeared in too many mag spreads since 2010 to count but the majority of them before 2014 were mainly SKE spreads so there aren't go be as many today as she deserves. This smaller set is from WPB #22 from 2011. If you compare these pics to the above ones she's sure grown up these last five years.
As mentioned most older spreads feature other members of SKE like this one does from the May 1, 2011 issue of Flash.
From the March 2012 issue of Bomb, sure you recognize most of the other cover gals.
About 98% positive these pics weren't posted, if they were it was a year ago so if that's the case they deserved an encore. Final Mina spread for today is from the July 2011 issue of UTB. Besides there not being enough Mina mag spreads there's also a shortage of fabulous videos. However there are a few on YT so after these pics check out her tremendous AKB 1/48 promo video.
