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...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... 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: The 'Hinako Kitano post' #8....

 Odds are probably slim to none that we'll have ever see a photobook featuring Hinako, hope I'm wrong with that thought as she's the one who I had wanted to see get the next PB. What it will probably take for that to happen is that every Senbatsu member graduates leaving only her....

 Been a long time since we've had any solo posts except for those recent ones for the member's 2016 cards, really need to start back on them. Last solo post for Hinako was when she was 4th on my 'Top Fave Nogi Members' list, think that ended in September. Wonder if I'm the only fan in the world who would rank her so high, had she been a year or two older she may have had a shot at being #1.
 Not a huge amount of things for today but there are a fair number of pics for the other Hinako fan(s) here to enjoy. This is such a shame that this spread from the December 20th Manga Action is only five pics but what five pics they are!!!!

 As usual Hinako is one of the best at keeping her blog updated, pics from the last week.

 Some recent cards that were missed for Hinako, unsure whether I'm going to do a post for all of her 2016 cards.

 Usually the members show up as a group at promo events or fashion shows but twice this year Hinako has gone solo at a fashion show. Forget the name of it but the other one took place in August, these pics are from last week's 'Moshi Moshi Nippon Fest'.

 Hinako was an Undergirl for almost three years, she wasn't promoted to a Senbatsu until single #15 which came out in July and let's hope she has a permanent spot. But back in March she and many other Undergirls did CM's for Suumo and have all them all here along with a behind the scenes segment as we need to give the UG gals more of a boost.


  1. Lol here's another fan!
    oddly enough she was the first Nogi member that I knew by name, got into the group hoping to see more of her but was disappointed by the little exposure she got but I was disappointed with the group itself. She still remains as one of my faves though, simply love her smile

    1. ...was not* dissapointes with the grouo..

  2. That smile is something else, it certainly makes me melt like butter. True about how little exposure she got but it's really increased since she got promoted to a Senbatsu.

    1. yeah and she doesn't seem to be wasting it. Her near daily blog posts also make sure you don't forget about her
