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.

Yui Aragaki: "Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu" drama news and "Hug" album tidbits....
Been a few short promos from TBS for Gakky's new series though we haven't seen much of her outside of them such as appearing in mag spreads or doing interviews at web sites. The drama starts on October 11th so hoping she'll kick it into gear as it'd be nice to see a drama of form her do well ratings wise.
Her last few dramas have been so-so both in quality and ratings, this one appears as though it could be her best one in years. If you go to YT and paste in her Kanji name or the name of the drama then you'll find many TBS videos there for the show. Probably a good idea to check them out soon as they don't leave them up forever, here's a few screenshots from the latest promo video.
Keep saying I'll post more older things of Gakky's but never seem to get around to doing too many. Did do a post one time for "Hug" album which came out on June 17, 2009 posted the pics from a mini PB that came with it.the album came out six days after Gakky's 21st b-day. On June 13th there was a mini b-day party for her and the album's release. There was also a special 'Hug Bus' event where Gakky had a busload of fans helping her promote the album across Tokyo.
That album made #5 on the Oricon charts, sadly there was one more album that came out in 2009 but sadly that was it for Gakky's singing career. "Make My Day" came out in 2008 and was included on the album, that was the only song with a PV on the album. Wanted to post a video from the album but there are none so here's a short promo for the new drama.
