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.

Yuko Oshima: A lot of a little(?)....
Wonder if Yuko's at the stage in her acting career where she doesn't need to do any more incredible spreads? Hope not as you don't need the five fingers on your hand to count how many in the world top her, actually you may need only one finger! Yuko is about to hit post #100 here but had thought that milestone would have been hit many months ago, for the most part it's been a slow year for her. She does have one film scheduled for next year but no news on any upcoming dramas.
Yuko's next film is coming out in nine days and is titled "Shippu Rondo", more info on it below and that's the poster for it above. There's been many mag spreads recently but except for one all have been way too small at one or two pages. First of two new mag spreads is one promoting the film along with the rest of the cast and these pics are from the December issue of Flix.
Solo set this time and a much bigger spread from the November 17th Hot Dog Press.
Sure there will be a lot of promoting for the film in the next week, with her co-star Abe on Wednesday's 'Tokio' show.
Think the "Shippu Rondo" movie is a serious one yet also a bit goofy. The main story is of a biological bomb stolen from a lab, Japan is held hostage until they pay a 300 million yen ransom which doesn't sound like a lot of money.
There was a huge promo event for the film held on November 17th in Tokyo, the film's official release date is the 26th. Looks snowy but that's just special effects as much of the film is set in the mountains, Yuko is supposedly a very good skier and snowboarder. Many pics here from the event but no video or at least not yet but positive there will be one for the premiere so instead have the film's trailer following the pics.
