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!
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: 'NOGIBINGO!' season seven episode six recap and screenshots
Wasn't planning on posting so many episodes for season seven but it just kind of happened, for now on will just do a post for the 'good shows'. That's because this season has really slipped and to be honest it's become unbelievably boring. 😢 I try not to post in a negative way though it does happen on occasion but mainly with dramas. However won't give up as the only place the show can go is up so will be continuing the watch and will do more recaps for the better shows.
Would imagine a lot of other variety shows have stretches like this one is in, could be difficult to keep coming up with interesting topics for the shows. The theme for this episode was 'Nogi Dolls', they also had a show like this one in the fifth season. Five members dressed up as a doll and had an owner in a few short segments.
As you can see the dolls from top to bottom were Mai, Asuka, Manatsu, Sayuri and Marika. Mai and Marika did passable performances being a doll, the others were so-so along with their owners. The segments were mainly about the owners of the dolls trying to talk with them, kind of hard to explain but it's really what brought this show down.
Seems like the same members have been participating in the shows, the episodes may be much better if Kazumi, Hinako and Ami were featured more as those three over the years have been the most fun members to watch. 😍 The show wasn't a competition on who was the best doll but it ended up in a contest as the gals tried their hand(feet) at jumping rope in their doll costumes. They did an okay job at that and in the final the two remaining members managed to skip the rope 79 times before someone slipped up, the winner is in the bottom screenshot.
At first was glad the Misa was going to be the assistant MC for the show, not so glad now. That's because her role in the show is so small and wish we saw much more of her, perhaps that's another reason for me not being too fond of this season.
But as I mentioned won't give up the ship and will continue viewing this show, if there's a post next week then you know there was a big improvement. Still waiting for the first appearance from Nanami, have no clue why she's been in zero shows.
