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.

Sakura Miyawaki: 2016 magazine scans #4
Don't you get the feeling that when Sakura turns 25 she'll still look like a 15 year old? To me she hasn't aged a day in years but unsure whether that's a good thing or not. HKT's eight single "Saikou ka yo" was released on September 7th, it topped the Oricon charts selling 269,000 copies.
Should be able to top the sales of the group's previous single which sold only a little over 300,000 copies which was their lowest total since their first single. To me HKT's singles have all been fairly good, much better than NMB's yet their sales are much lower than NMB, surprisingly their biggest selling single has only sold 350,000 copies.
Been a while since the last Sakura post but she's been a bit quiet over the Summer though she was in the "Crow's Blood" drama. Last three months there's only been three new mag spreads but as I've said before seems as though Idols have zero spreads for many months then all of a sudden they're in ten of them in just a matter of weeks. First set is from the July issue of Bomb.
Really superb set of Sakura pics from Young Champion #17.
Weren't too many new Sakura spreads but at least they were all fairly big, last set is a brand new one from the September 26th issue of Young Magazine.
Sakura has really been moving up in the AKB elections that are held in June. Her first one she finished 47th but since then jumped up to 26th, 11th, seventh and in the last election finished sixth as she's really becoming so popular. Have some cards here for AKB's 45th single "Love Trip".
