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.

Nogizaka46: 2016 Magazine scans #71- Mai Shiraishi from Ray along with making of video

 How would one respond if you said 'trick or treat' and someone as bewitching as Mai answered the door? No response from me as I need to let my imagination run wild for a while....
The group will be performing the new single for the first next Friday on the NTV 'Halloween Live 2016' show, probably won't be dressed as captivating as they were at the 2014 T-Spook concert.

Mai has been an exclusive model for Ray since 2013 and seems like these spreads get just a tad bigger each month. This set of pics from their December issue has a massive total of 28 of them! Mai just finished in the fifth position in my top ten fave member list but have to admit she's kind of entered her own world as far as looks go. Her smile, among other things, is just so enticing it's a wonder all of the icebergs in the world haven't melted yet.... thinking about it more she may be one of the main reasons for global warming.

 After these stupendous pics check out a video from the photo shoot for this spread, above two pics are from it as Mai once again leaves us speechless....


  1. Maiyan. Beautiful and radiant as always. Hope she doesn't decide to graduate next year. Then again, she'll probably stay in showbiz.

    Speaking of enticing smiles, if ever you decide to post about Korean idols I'd recommend Bona and Cheng Xiao of WJSN(Cosmic Girls)

  2. Sadly her and many other member's graduations will be happening in the next two years, wonder how big of a fan I'll be then? Do know quite a bit about Korean actresses but do profess about not knowing too much about K-Idols.

    1. True,though I do like the 2nd generation members and 1st generation undergirls quite a bit

      Not a huge Korean idol follower either but WJSN caught my interest
