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.

Nogizaka46: Mai Shiraishi "Ushijima the Loan Shark Part 3" film screening pics and more....
Gulp.... Christmas is only 3 1/2 months away, wonder what I'll tell Santa if I'm asked "Have you been a good boy?".
Er, uh, to be honest may have to say someone has made me have a few impure thoughts on occasion.
On to somewhat more serious things, the main reason for this post is that the third "Ushijima the Loan Shark" film will be coming out on September 22nd. Mai will be in the film playing the character of Rina who is supposed to be some sort of Idol. Unsure how big her part will be but it's the first big time movie a Nogi member has appeared in. She's going to have some big shoes to fill as Yuko appeared in the first film which came out in 2012, like I said some big shoes(?) to fill.
However if there's one thing Mai relishes is a challenge!
On September 7th the main cast appeared at the first screening of the movie which was held at the TOHO Cinemas in Shinjuku. Should be a few more promo events for the film so will keep you posted on any of the news and will definitely have a post for the screening, of course we all know who stole the show at the screening.
As you may know Mai finished in the fifth position for my first ever 'Top Ten Fave Nogi Member' list. Did that post last Friday and haven't done one since as I'm changing the frequency of them. Was doing two posts a week, decided for the final four will do one a week which will bring us up to the end of this month and will do the next one either tomorrow or Friday.
Wish Mai could have finished higher, two years ago she would have but my final four has remained the same for many months now. Posted a few pics of Mai from Saturday's 'Tokyo Girls Collection' show but have many more of them here, actually Mai was #1 of all the members at the event as she looked better than ever. After these dazzling pics have a much too short video of Mai from the show, with all these new photobooks coming out doesn't she deserve another one?
