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: 2016 Magazine scans #80
Bit of a slowdown for "Sayonara no Imi" in it's fifth week out as sales fell to 7,200. That brings the total sales to 911,000 so it's going to take a few good weeks to crack the seven figure mark. It's been certified as a million seller though that officially hasn't happened as that number was for how many copies were shipped. The 911,000 figure is for actual sales and is from Oricon so that to me is more of an accurate number versus total copies shipped.
Once again Nogi shows weren't streamed so that means no viewing of their X-Mas concerts which took place last week. Don't know what their management is thinking as only one show this year has been streamed for the fans plus it's been a while since a new DVD release for one of their shows.
On to the mag spreads and it's dominated by Nanase who has one set which she she shares but also has two solo ones and have to admit she looks mighty fine in both of them. First nine pics are form the January issue of Bubka while the rest are from Weekly Shonen #3-4 for 2017. All these spreads are for 2017 but the year is still 2 1/2 weeks away so that's why the title says '2016 scans'.
More Nanase here from issue #2-3 of Young Magazine for 2017. End of December most magazines don't publish which is why the 2017 editions are put out early and most are double issues. Title of the spread is 'Last Christmas' which refers to Nanami as this is her last X-Mas with Nogi. Other member in the set is Misa and that 5th pic leaves me gasping for breath again. The spread is six pics and the last three are bonus ones.
With Asuka's first photobook coming out at the end of January sure we'll be seeing a lot of mag spreads promoting the book, these are from volume 14 of BLT Graph.
