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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Yua Shinkawa: Intro post #1- 2016 promo events
Have mentioned that I was going to stop introducing new gals by the end of this month so Yua will be one of the last ones and probably last actress. Sure many know her and if you don't think you will as she is one likable woman, if you enjoy gals like Mirei and Tsubasa then you'll no doubt really like Yua. All three are models for Non-no plus Yua has appeared in a drama and film with Tsubasa. Speaking of her she'll be coming up in my top twenty list, next spot is my #9 fave but she'll be higher than that.
Surprised it's taken me so long to have her intro posts, use the plural on that as the next post has mag spreads from 2014. Yua will be turning 23 in exactly two weeks which means there's plenty of past things about her, actually have so many could do ten posts in a row but will spread them out. Yua is still a model but doesn't do it nearly as much as she did from 2012-14 as she's been concentrating on her acting career and it's working out very well for her. I've seen her in a few things and while her parts haven't been huge they've been getting much bigger and wouldn't doubt if she'll have a lead role very soon.
Will add in more of Yua's bio in these intro posts and besides the next one will try to do at least two of them each week for the next month. There will rarely ever be a shortage of Yua things as she's one of the busiest actresses/celebs/models around these days. She's also a co-host of the weekly "Kings Brunch" show and is currently starring in the "IQ246" drama.
What Yua does more than anything else it seems is to appear at promo events or fashion shows, for this first post have some of her events from this year. On November 6th Yua was at a fan shaking event at the Fukuya bookstore in Shibuya for her first photobook "Yua Friend". Also part of the PB was her 2017 calendar, hopefully that's another calendar I'll be posting soon and the first pic is the cover of the book.
The next post has some fabulous Yua mag spread pics from 2014 but for the most part Yua is rather conservative or at least more so these days. You can see that from the above pics and these ones here which are from the July 2nd premiere of the "Zenin, Kataomoi" film. There were eight shortish segments in the film and Yua had the lead role in her segment "Usotsuki no Koi".
Saved the best for last as Yua looked tremendous at a May 19th event called 'Barbie your Doll'. She looks so fabulous you could create a doll from her looks, that first pic as Yua in a package and that'd be one hard present to top. After these pics is a video of the event which is a recommended view.
