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.

Mayu Matsuoka: Few recent happenings....

 Been so busy lately with other posts completely forgot about Mayu who is in my top five for current actresses, she is just so incredibly adorable. Never did finish recapping her "Okodawari" drama that aired in the Spring, really recommended if you like totally wacky shows.

 Mayu has appeared in three dramas this year so taking a well deserved break, she's also been in three films that have been released this year. Lot of recent activities though these last few weeks even though she's not going to be in any more dramas or films this year. First thing is from a recent interview for YouPaper which is a Japanese website, it's also known as YouPress.

 Some recent pics promoting Furisode's 'coming of age' kimonos though Mayu's next b-day will be her 22nd, that will be happening on February 16th.

 More promo pics and these are for the Furryrate Autumn/Winter collection.

 Mayu's last series was "Aquarium Girl", seen her in six dramas and that's been the only one I didn't care too much for. On October 21st Mayu was at the Shinagawa Aquarium where she was the honorary day director and took a turn with the dolphins like she did in the drama. Pics here are from the event along with a video after them.


  1. Suizokukan Girl was such a pleasantly uneventful watch, nothing special, but very relaxing in a boring way

  2. Uneventful is an apt description for that drama. Never posted about the show but thought "Genkai Shuraku Kabushiki Kaisha" was her best one to date. SHE was quite good too but would have been much better had it been longer.

  3. I like her movies best, Genkai was good, haven't bothered to check out SHE

  4. Have her 2015 film "Samulife" and really want to watch it but just haven't got around to it yet, "Neko Nanka" also looks like an interest film.
