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.

Anna Iriyama: Magazine scans #1
Anna's name was brought up in a recent comment which got me to thinking perhaps she deserves her first solo post which will probably lead to a few more. Not going to get into Anna's history, sure most J-Pop fans know about what event happened back in 2014. Did see Anna in the "Siren" drama which aired in the Fall of 2015, thought she did a passable job as a hostess in the show.
Speaking of hostesses think that's the main theme of season six of "Majisuka Gakuen". However it's going by a different title this time which is "Kyabasuka Gakuen". Have the first episode which aired last night but will wait to see if it gets subbed before posting about it. Anna was in seasons 2-4 of the drama so would expect her to be in this one though I'm not positive she is but some of the characters who were killed previously are making a reappearance in the new series.
Anna will be turning 21 in five weeks, she's been an AKB member since 2010 and is currently on Team A though the letters really don't mean much. She'll also be on AKB's new single "High Tension" which is coming out on November 16th and is the theme song for the new drama. Anna just finished 18th in the last election but will be one of the Senabatsu members for the single.
On to a few recent mag spreads and she looks mighty fine in all of them. Anna appears in many spreads so shouldn't be a problem having a few more posts for her, don't think she's ever had her own solo photobook. First set of pics are brand new ones from the November 1st issue of Manga Action.
Different mag but looks like these pics were done at the same photo shoot, these are from the October edition of EX-Taishu.
Flash magazine puts out a special 'Gravure Best' issue quarterly, here's Anna appearing in their latest issue which came out in September.
Last set of Anna pics are from the June 16th issue of Young Jump. Noticed on YT Anna doesn't have nearly as many videos as other AKB members, will try to find a superb one for her next post but there is a way too short one after the pics which is definitely worth viewing.
