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 #35....
According to Oricon "Syaonara no Imi" sold 736,000 copies in it's first two days, Billboard Japan had the figure at 773,000. Even if you use the lower number the single only needs to sell 13,000 more copies in the next five days to set their record for highest first week sales. Shouldn't be a problem beating single #15 which has sold 850,000 copies to date, wonder if a million is possible?
If you're wondering what do get Nanami for Christmas bet some new hats would be a good idea, her head may be too big to fit into any of her old ones! Speaking of her will be doing a few posts soon for her "Koisuru Bungaku" documentary series, currently airing is the second season. Have the two episodes that have aired but may wait until it finishes as there's just a total of five shows.
Do have quite a bit today, except for one promo event post have only done recaps for their 'BINGO' shows the last two weeks, honestly needed a bit of a breather from them before I got burnt out. First off are some superb pics, as usual, from Kazumi and the pics are from a brand new interview for the Real Sound website. Her first photobook "Koi no kamo Shirenai" has done okay as it's sold a bit over 21,000 copies. May not sound like a huge amount compared to other members like Nanase but it did sell better than expected, hopefully it'll continue selling well during the holidays.
Have two other mag spreads but will just be posting this one today, been a while since a regular mag spread post as there haven't been too many these last two weeks. These pics are from the December issue of Men's Non-no, Nanase appears every month in the Women's Non-no. Joining Nanase in this set are Erika, Misa, Sayuri and Asuka.
Few missed October cards here for Nanami, Erika and Misa.
New ones for November which feature Mai, Nanase and Miria who continues to get a big push and it's a shame her segment from the last 'BINGO' show was chopped to almost nothing.
Naturally the group has been appearing on almost every music show promoting the new single. Won't be posting too many of them but do have some screenshots here from last Friday's Music Station show. Was going to post the video from the show but the one playable one I found was the entire show so skipped that. The other I wasn't allowed to view as it's only available in Japan so instead have a short CM that's promoting the single.
