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!
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: A little of this and that for 2016 #31....
Miona posted that pic on her blog today, who wouldn't mind having a poster like that on their wall!?Too many Nogi posts to count recently and probably could have done a few more. This recent spell of non-imbibing has been the main reason, next weekend need to get back to my normal ways. Will come tomorrow or the next day with part two of the 'Nogi Singles Series' for their fifth single, as I mentioned in that first post thought the B-sides were the much better songs.
Perhaps that could be the next series or at least a few posts which would be my top Nogi songs. Said songs as my top four tunes from them could be B-sides, all the hits are really good songs but so often it's not the hit that's the best song on a single or album. That doesn't just go for them but other J-Pop artists and also groups on this side of the pond.
The group will once again make an appearance at a 'Girls Awards' show and that will be taking place this week. The members usually look so fabulous at those shows as 4-5 of them will take a stroll on the catwalk, wonder if they'll preview any new songs at the event?
Nanase has plenty to cheer about as her new PB should easily top the Oricon charts when the figures come out on Tuesday. Last week she had the #1 photobook even though it wasn't released yet, those sales were for pre-orders.
As the title says do have a little of many things today. Just one mag spread but wouldn't doubt if I've posted twenty new ones this past week. Nanase is also clapping because it's her in the only new spread which is from WPB #43 and more promo pics for the new PB which is her second one. Still haven't heard if there's going to be fan signing event for the PB, it would have to be this week.
Was just scrolling through the member's blogs, hate to single anyone out but some of them do such a horrendous job at updating them. Asuka hasn't had a post since August while Reika has had only two since June and she's the team captain! Have no idea why some don't feel they should keep it updated while others really take pride in their blogs and do post many pics with info.
There are a few excellent Nogi bloggers and usually try to tell you who they are. Have two of the best here which are Hinako and Miona, rarely does a day go by without an entry from them.
These next two do a respectable job with their blogs though often they do often have gaps between entries. But when they do a post they're usually chock full of pics like the first seven here with Erika. Following her is Nanami who just posted the top pics today and she doesn't look all that good, perhaps too many bottles of Kirin last night(!) but the bottom pic rates an A++++.
Been a while since a 'pairs post', haven't found the time due to so many new happenings and the new singles series. May take some work but the next post for a duo hopefully will be with these two who finished in the third and fourth positions on my top ten list, of course I mean Misa and Hinako. Know they've shared at least one mag spread but they also seem to be in so many pics together, especially blog ones.
These 'a little of this and that' tend to huge posts but upon further reflection most Nogi posts tend to be that way. Been posting September cards a little at a time and have four more members today who are Erika, Yumi, Reika and Miria who we've been seeing so much of lately.
Was hoping to post the video for the group's new CM for Panasonic....
.... but as you can see in the bottom pic the campaign doesn't start until tomorrow but thought with the time difference it would be on YT, another miscalculation by me. However do have a fabulous video for you to enjoy as the group made an appearance August 5th on the 'Bazurizumu' show. Know it's a bit old but it's a really enjoyable segment as there's a long interview, then they perform "Hadashi de Summer".
