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.

Sayaka Yamamoto: 2017 Magazine scans #1 plus NMB cards
Idols are busy all year versus actresses, they're the ones who have been so quiet this year so far. Then again they do things like films, mag spreads or other things which we don't hear about for months. Two NMB posts in a row, Nana is below this one and she graduated in 2015. Really expect Sayaka to graduate within the year, she'll be turning 24 in July and don't know if she really needs NMB these days. Can't say that she would have a successful acting career but as a musician she could. her first album "Rainbow" came out in October and did well as it sold about 65,000 copies in it's first month.
That's an okay sales figure but wonder if it shouldn't have been higher especially being associated with AKB. As far as NMB goes their last single came out on December 28th and was titled "Boku Igai no Dareka" aka Someone other than Me. First week sales were 266,000 copies sold and it's currently at 292,000. It finished #1 on the charts that first week but the group's sales have fallen off like most '48' groups these last two years as at one time their singles sold over 500,000 copies.
On to the main topic of this post which is Sayaka, she's never been a beauty face wise but think she's gotten much more attractive these last two years. NMB cards here are from December and January.
Four mag spreads today, sharing the cover with an NMB mate from the February issue of Bubka.
With two NMB members from the February issue of EX-Taishu.
Nice Sayaka solo spread from Bomb for February.
Last Sayaka spread is from Woman's CQ Japan, there were no spreads for a while and all of a sudden four came out so let's hope for many more as she's looking mighty fine or actually finer.
