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...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... 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.

Yuu Kikkawa: "Shin Kanpai Senshi After V" series episode two recap and screenshots

 Air Dates: October 3 to December 19, 2015 on After TV

 If you enjoy short recaps like the post above this one you'll really savor this one as it should be much shorter. Somehow even less happened in this episode though we did briefly meet their boss. Not positive but think every show one member will be in the spotlight, this time it was the team's leader Red and so far we only know them by their colors.
 As you can see by the above pic there was a promo event for the show. Think I'll do a post for that event soon but will be trying to post only Yuu pics as I just can't get enough of her.

Yuu Kikkawa as Pink

 Ryouta Murai as Red, the group's leader

 Kazuki Kato as Blue

Buffalo Goro A as Yellow

Tsubasa Tobinhaga as Green

 Red is having a bit of a personal crisis as he's thinking there has to be more in life then being a Sentai hero. He tells the team of his decision to leave the team and also his boss in Tokyo who soon flies down to Fukuoka to meet with Red. Red thinks his boss will try to stop him from leaving but that wasn't the case plus the other members in the team didn't seem too upset he was leaving.
 The name of the boss is 'Lame Gold', lame is an apt description for this odd character. He brought down Red's replacement who will also go by the name of Red, he and the team really hit it off. The boss had given Red resignation papers to sigh, viewing them has given him a change of heart.

 However the boss won't hear of it and is waiting for Red to leave the team. Though we don't see the team fight any monsters it appears as though they do as they were talking about a battle they won as they were having their usual all night drinking session with the new Red. Doesn't appear as there's anything the original Red can do and ends up sulking in a corner.
 Meanwhile we didn't see as much of the commander of the 'Evil Organization' or his henchman this episode. Their plans for world domination revolve around their chain of pubs called 'Evil Den' that they're opening around the world though there was no mention of it in this episode. Can't recall the name of the commander though perhaps a few Sentai fans will but have seen him in a few other series like this or at least the non-parody Sentai shows.
 The team along with Red and the boss leave their usual watering hole and head to a nearby karaoke bar which it appears they're going to do every show. There things take a change for the better as far as Red goes as he pleads with his boss to let him stay as leader of the team. The boss still won't here of it as he seems to like the new Red better but that new Red leader actually has other plans and they're going to make Red very happy.

 The new Red has received a much better job offer and didn't think that he could accept it as his first obligation was being the leader of the team. But now that Red wants to return so badly the new Red says he'll accept the new job offer and give the reigns of the team back to the original Red. Even Sentai heroes and the villains they face off against worry about finances which is one of the parodies of this show.
 Now Red is back as the leader, to him it's his true calling in life and he didn't realize it until he was about to quit. Short recap it was as his being taken back as the team's leader happened right at the end and once again there were no fight scenes we saw with monsters.

 There should be some fight scenes coming up as I was checking the names of the cast and there are monsters mentioned though most of them appeared in the first season. Won't give this a watch or don't watch recommendation, it's definitely an off the wall series with little action so far. But for some strange reason the first two shows were okay watches, being only 22 minutes long really helps.
 Not sure when the next recaps will be coming up, could be tomorrow or two weeks from now. There's five series I'm watching right now, kind of hard at times to figure out which one to watch but really need to finish off the "W" drama and post about the last five episodes. Many more screenshots for you to enjoy(?), Yuu isn't dressed nearly as scantily as she often does but she could be dressed in five parkas and look like a billion yen to me.
