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.

Juice=Juice: 'The Akari Uemura post' #1
Have a feeling after C-ute's final performance which takes place on June 12th Juice=Juice will become my current fave J-Pop group. They're kind of successful but not overly so, their singles usually sell 40,000 or so copies but lately not even C-ute songs can top their songs.
Have recapped the group's "Budokan" drama which was a very entertaining watch, now it's time to introduce you to the members. Have already done a few posts for the group's captain Yuka Miyazaki, now on to the hottest and I mean hottest member who is Akari.
Had wanted to post about her for so long but she didn't turn 18 until last month, wanted to wait until she hit that age but she matured rather quickly as she looks 20+ in these pics. Akari has already had two photobooks and three solo DVD's, she looks so incredible in all of them and like I said she looks much older than she is.
She's also the tallest Juice=Juice member as her height is close to 165 cm and Akari is also the most popular member or at least I'm under the impression she is. Will probably do another post for his this week before I introduce the other three members, next post will have pics from her 18th b-day concert and the promo event for her second PB which came out in July. Just have two things for today but they do total quite a few pics, first off is from the November 8th issue of Young Gangan.
Will also be doing some posts for the group, their tunes are honestly better than any other group these days. Akari has appeared in many editions of the monthly H!P Digital Books, pics here are from December's issue. Next post will have more from this set and following these terrific pics is a promo video for her third DVD "Take It Early". The entire video is on YT but didn't think you'd want to view one that's 95 minutes long but it's highly recommended.
