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.

Nao Kanzaki: 'Top Twenty Faves list for 2016' #5....?
Hello Project members have a stranglehold on my top six as four of them are in the positions 6, 5, 3 and #1. Four more to go in the series, any one want to take a stab on who they are? Guess you would have to read their posts as I've dropped many hints in them. Besides the four in the top six two other H!P gals made the top twenty, two are solo artists while the others are in groups.
Haven't done a post for Yuu in quite a while as there hasn't been many new happenings. She is a busy gal but the things she does don't make for very interesting posts, she does host a radio show plus appears on two variety shows. Yuu also appears a couple of times a month on the 'Girls Live' show which features members of Hello Project, it's a part music/variety show.
Most of Yuu's mag spreads and other pic sets are already posted here but not much else but they do total twenty posts. There are quite a few older things to post about such as cards, promo events and many others but there's been so many new happenings recently haven't had the time to do many older posts for anyone. Will work on that soon as January isn't that busy of a month.
Probably have given most of Yuu's bio but in case you missed those posts Yuu is 24 with her birthday taking place on May 1st. She's been a member of Hello Project since 2007 and was in a few groups such as Hello Pro Egg until 2011 when she started a solo career. Since then Yuu has released ten singles with the last one coming out in June, most hit the top twenty but don't sell too many copies which is a shame as they're entertaining tunes and she does have a fine voice.
There was an interview back in 2014 for the website jame-world which is translated into English. What I really enjoyed about the interview was what Yuu said about herself, her comment was 'that I'm very voluptuous' and it's impossible to argue with her on that.
Was worried about not having new pics for this post as I didn't want this series to just consist of 'greatest hits' pics. Luckily there are quite a few older Yuu things I haven't had the chance to post so that problem is solved and as mentioned will be posting more happenings soon for 2011-15. Back in 2011 Yuu had the lead role in a movie titled "Cheerfu11y", that's how it's spelled. It's a cheerleading film and it's an okay watch though haven't reviewed it yet but will try to do it soon.
Some real old Yuu H!P cards and sadly she hasn't had any of them for many years now.
Yuu has had three photobooks to date, know the pics for her last one from 2014 are posted but unsure about her second PB. Another thing that I need to work on is posting all of the pics from her first book which came out in 2011 and was titled "You", few pics from it.
Yuu has been at many promo events over the years but have only done two posts so far for them. On June 3rd, 2013 she was at an event for 'Grico Cafe' to promote a new CM for their 'au lait' drink and Universal Japan. She had a song that came out for the CM titled "Ambiguous Relationship" with a one time group called "Chrysanthemum Ren", some pics from the promo event for it.
Those above pics are something else, you may have noticed that all of Yuu's are that way. In her previous posts have had her singles and think I stopped at her sixth one. Single seven was titled "Urahara Temptation" and to end off the post here's Yuu doing the song in concert, it only reached #17 on the charts but it really is a fun song.
