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' #3- more H!P Digital Book scans and "Dream Road" PV
Last year was a quiet one for the group as they only released two singles, above are some covers from their last one which came out in October "Dream Road". It did okay sales wise selling about 35,000 copies and reaching #3 on the charts. But their previous single which came out in February "Next Is You" sold close to 50,000 copies, can't think of a good reason for the drop in sales. "Next Is You" was the theme song for their fine "Budokan" drama so that could be one reason the sales were much higher.
Want to get through the members before I start posting more about the group, really hoping they're planning on having another single very soon which will be their twelfth. However will do a post soon on their first Budokan concert which took place in November. That was the plot of the drama as the group's goal was to play there and it did happen in real life. That was a very enjoyable series and recommend it if you're looking for something different, much more serious than you would expect.
This will probably be Akari's last solo post for a while unless there's some new happenings for her. Akari is the youngest member of the group as she's just 18 and can't go too far back because of that. Will have more member posts coming up soon, still two I haven't begun to post about yet. Akari's first two posts had some pics from the H!P Digital Book for December but have plenty more here, they're outtakes from her last photobook "Akari II". With pics like these would think(hope) Akari's third book will be released this year. Was talking about the group's last single "Dream Road" above so have the PV after these fabulous pics and it's the subbed version.
EDIT: Actually this won't be her last post for a while as she's also the H!P Digital Book member for January and will have those pics coming up tomorrow.
