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.

Nao Kanzaki: 'Top Twenty Faves list for 2016' #14....?
Up until now the top twenty has been dominated by actresses, that'll be changing once we hit the top ten as the Idols will start to take over but think there's three actresses in the top nine. So Mina is just the second idol picked so far, think if she was more active in dramas, appeared at more promo events, etc. then a top five ranking would not have been out of the question for her. She truly gets my blood boiling more than almost any other woman.
Have done enough posts for Mina so most of you should know a bit about her. In case you don't she's the captain of SKE's Team KII. Mina will be turning 25 next April and for at least a year have been saying there's no other Idol who deserves a photobook as much as she does, getting up in years means there's less of a chance. If it did ever happen it would easily be my #1 for the year it came out and close to being my fave one of all time even if there were no pics in it(?)!
Mina finished in the 22nd spot in the last AKB election which was her highest ranking yet. That took place in June and a few months after that she said it would be her last time participating in the election, hope that's not a sign of her graduating. Think this is just her 14th post so that matches up with her position, all of them up until now have been for mag spreads and they're all caught up except for one which you'll be viewing.
Guess that means I need to start working on other types of Mina posts but she doesn't do that many activities outside of SKE. But there is one new happening coming up which is that she'll have the lead role in a play coming out in February titled "Gag Manga Days". Think it's her second play and the start date is February 17th at the Laforet Museum in Tokyo. Should be a press conference for it so that'll be an upcoming post if it happens, a few promo pics for the play.
Heather Diary is a woman's clothing site and they've had quite a few Idols model for them this year. Mina was one and these are pics I had missed from August.
Mina's mag spreads have always been among the best and perhaps these days they top any other Idol. Shame she's not in more of them but is in most of the Young Gangan issues, these better than perfect pics are from the November edition of Bomb, whewwwwwwwwww....!!!!
Mina is one of the shorter gals to make the top twenty as she only stands five feet tall(150 cm), actually there's two others who match her height but many are 165 cm or taller. Harder to tell how tall Idols are as most groups tend to be short but when they're grouped together it's hard to determine their heights. Ending off with some with some examples of the word perfection and after them is a video for her AKB 1/48 photo shoot which is a high recommended view.
