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: A little of this and that for 2016 #39....

Gulp, gulp. gulp, gulp, gulp.....

 In case you haven't heard the tremendous news Mai has a photobook(about time) coming out on February 7th. That's less than two weeks after Asuka's first PB is coming out so this one will surely cut into the sales. So far no title to the book but it's already available at Amazon for 1,944 yen, if those pics are any indication of what the book is going to be like..... WOW!!!!
 Main reason for this post was to recap the seventh show of the current 'NOGIBINGO' season, really didn't feel like doing a long recap for it but do have many screenshots at the bottom of the post. The group is currently in the midst of doing their X-Mas concerts, tonight the Undergirls are performing while the Senbatsu members have their second show tomorrow. Weren't too many pics at their blog but here's a few from the shows, in the fourth pic Seira paid them a visit.

 No new mag spreads for today but there have been many of them over the last two weeks and there are many that will be coming out very soon. But it's X-Mas time so will be posting some of those cards, trio for now features Mai, Erika and Yumi, she'll be next for the 2016 card post series.

 Another so-so episode of 'NOGIBINGO' so didn't want to devote a whole post for it. What made it a bit better was that it featured Ayane and Kotoko, the show was sort of titled 'Sasaki and Suzuki'. Nice to see some Undergirls we don't see too often get their turn in the spotlight. The major problem with both of them are that they're just way too quiet and have always been that way. Perhaps they had the show devoted to them to help them get out of their shells, Ayane was a bit more talkative than usual while Kotoko really wasn't but I think she's one of the cuter members.
 They're also a bit interesting as they're both into animes and mangas. The pair traveled around Tokyo for a while, they had a contest on who could run the 50 meter dash the fastest and they had a quiz segment of 100 questions though we only saw five of them. The pair also visited a karaoke bar, took over an hour but they did eventually sing a song, naturally it was one of their own. Not too much else took place but it was an okay show and I'd like to see more Undergirls take the spotlight like they did, Yuuri is one who deserves more attention. Not much of a recap but thought about not doing one at all, you can view all that happened in these screenshots.
