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: A little of this and that for 2016 #42....
Last Nogi post for the year and it's #311 for 2016! Not quite one a day but it's close to 32% of the total posts for the year as there will be a 983 of them which should be a record. Kind of makes me tired just seeing that number, kept wanting to slow down a bit but it never happened for more than a day. In a way kind of hope that record won't be broken next year.
Seeing as how after February we won't be seeing any more of Nanami that figure of 983 will be tough to top, still not totally convinced of her retiring. For the second year in a row Nogi will be appearing on the NHK 'Kohaku' show which is a marathon with all of the most popular musical groups. It's the 67th year it's aired and it also goes by the name 'Red and White Singing Contest'.
On the 28th the group had a rehearsal for the show, it's such a popular show even rehearsals are covered by all the major media sites. Know the group will be performing their current smash hit "Sayonara no Imi", unsure if they'll be doing any other tunes.
Besides that not much else going on with the group, the gals though never seem to take a week or two vacation and sure they probably need that. Have two new mag spreads with the first being from a special Flash issue titled 'Best of Winter 2017' featuring Manatsu and Sayuri.
The other Sayuri is joined by the eternal never smiling Marika 😐 in the February Entame.
