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 #73

 Hmmmm, wonder why I've always thought as the members being so pure?

 Kind of funny as how in Sunday's post mentioned that there's been no Halloween cards for this year. On Monday it was announced that Halloween cards are now available for order, did that post have anything to do with it?

 Bit slow for the group these last few days and probably will be until this Friday. On that day they'll be appearing on NTV's 'Halloween Special' and will be performing the new single for the first time. Already have the PV's for the single but prefer seeing them do their songs live, least in concert they sing live but not too often on TV shows.
 Just a few mag spreads for today but think there's an unwritten rule that I'm not allowed to go two days without a Nogi post. Riho from HKT is someone who I've never posted anything about, though she is the most popular member in the AKB family she's someone I don't care too much for, HKT's singles though are usually fairly good. She teams up with Nanase in this set of pics from the November 7th issue of WPB. Nanase also teamed up with another J-Popper who was Maimi from   C-ute a few years ago for a superb spread and video.

 Also from that WPB issue are quite a few group pics.

 For a long time thought Asuka had the lead in solo posts for this year, she's really slowed down in them in these last few months so think she no longer has the lead and these are from Larme.

 Final spread, as I mentioned above there haven't been as many of them this last week. The Undergirls are well represented here int he December issue of Samurai ELO.


  1. I like most of the Undergirls and like it when they get promoted but just going to be strange at first when the second generation members are the majority in the Senbatsu ranks. Mahiro really deserves another shot at being a Senbatsu, can really see Miria being the most popular member 3-4 years from now.

    1. Miria has a good shot,though I'm personally rooting for unpopular Iori.

      Any Undergirls you don't like?

  2. Can't say I'm a huge fan of all of the Undergirls but there's none that I dislike. Problem so many of them will have is that they're stuck there and will remain there unless many of the Senbatsus graduate.
