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.

Kasumi Arimura: '67th Kohaku' pics
First post of the year and Kasumi seemed like a good choice to start off with. Above pic is from the 2017 Toho calendar, Kasumi along with all of other actresses in the calendar just has one month and will be posting a few of the other months.
Kind of a slow last few months in 2016 for Kasumi but 2017 is shaping up to be a much busier year as she has four films scheduled this year. First movie is coming out on March 18th, it's the first of a two-parter titled "March Comes in like a Lamb". Also Kasumi will be the lead actress in the next NHK asadora "Hiyokko" which starts in April.
Think because of that lead role is why Kasumi was chosen to be the co-host for the 67th edition of the 'Kohaku' music show which aired on New Years Eve. The show also goes by the name 'Red and White Singing Contest' and close to forty groups were on this year's show though none topped how the co-host looked! Well, actually a few Nogi members looked mighty fine and will have that psot coming up very shortly. Plenty of superb pics here from the show though no video of it is on YT as NHK probably blocks/deletes them.
