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 #57....
Been a while since a 'pairs post' so will be working on more of them, it'd be difficult but having a three or foursome would be such a fabulous post. Though it's been a much slower month for group activities seems as though this last week there's been more posts than ever, have a feeling next month then could set a record for group posts as they're going to be extremely busy.
Over the weekend will have at least one more post for the 'Nogi singles series' along with my #2 selection for the top ten list. We may have to wait a little while longer for news about the group's 16th single which will be released on November 9th. Have noticed in the past they'll announce about a month in advance the title of the single, a week later we'll learn who the Senbatsu members are but we already know who 95% of them will be.
Next Tuesday Nanase's second photobook is coming out, it's title is "Kaze o Kigaete". Her first PB was okay and a huge seller but thought other member's books were much better. However looks like this PB will be an improvement over that first book, two low quality promo pics that were leaked.
Have three spreads for today, there's been quite a few of them lately and as mentioned there's going to be so many of them next month. Doesn't look like there's any pics here promoting the new PB but Nanse still looks superb leading us off with this set from Young Jump #43.
Sayuri has been a member since the group's inception and was a Senbatsu for most of their singles. It was kind of a surprise then when she was dropped to being an Undergirl for the group's last single. Problem is that the group has so many likable and talented members it's a shame that some have to be left out though the songs the Undergirls do on the singles are usually quite good. This spread here is from issue #247 of UTB.
Was going to save these for another Mai solo post this weekend as there may be more things to post about her for the 'Ushijima' film. In case there weren't enough things thought I'd better post these terrific pics which are from the November issue of Ray, quite a huge set with 26 pics.
