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!
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: 2016 magazine scans #54
Mentioned last week that these first few weeks of September could be a slowish period for the group, one of the few times I wish that a prediction didn't come true. The group deserves a bit of break, they've really been so busy these last few months and would rather have a slow period than seeing some members burn themselves out. Which has happened as there were at least four members who couldn't take part in two recent fan handshaking events due to health problems.
They will need the rest as two have photobooks coming out soon plus their 16th single will be released in less than two months. And that will mean many TV appearances to promote it along with them performing their X-Mas concerts, one other thing is that a new season of 'NOGIBINGO!' will be starting up in October.
Just three new mag spreads for today but naturally the pics all rate an A+. Mai will be in her first major film which is the third installment of "Ushijima the Loan Shark", that will be coming out on September 22nd and here's a small spread for it from a special "Pia Autumn Movies" mag.
Erika has been a bit quiet as of late but she will be starring in the "Romeo and Juliet" stage play which opens up in February. Actually she has two plays scheduled for next year which will bring her total to four of them in the last three years. This fine set is from volume 25 of Television Colors.
Nanase and Kazumi are the two members who have photobooks coming out and for some strange reason they're going to be released just eight days apart. Last mag spread post had this pair's pics from the October issue of Bomb but these are some terrific bonus pics from the mag.
