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...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... 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.

C-ute: Some recent happenings....
Still can't believe that tribute song they did for me hasn't been released....
.... looks like someone is getting tired of me wondering about it's release. Besides C-ute's final single they're also going to release another photobook on May 1st. It's supposed to be a mini history of the group along with many new pics, no word if any members will have a solo PB.
March 29th is the release date for the group's 31st and final single. Originally it was supposed to come out on the 22nd but that's the date of Nogi's next single. The H!P site said it was pushed back because of production problems but even if that's not true it was wise not to go head to head with Nogi. The single will consist of three songs as usual, their titles are "To Tomorrow/Final Squall/The Curtain Rises" though their curtain will be falling. 😞
So far no covers for the singles have been released nor any promo pics or cards but there's still over five weeks to go until it's release date. Not all that many new happenings but it had been a while since the last group post, think they're resting up for their final three months as they have many concerts and activities lined up. Have one new mag spread which is a superb one from the March issue of UTB+, don't see them in enough mags these days but hopefully that will change with their final single and concert.
Have some older New Years cards for Airi and Maimi which hadn't been posted.
The group finished up their mini Winter tour which was a continuation of their 'Compass' Autumn tour. The Spring tour, their final one, is called 'Cocktail'. All are old enough to drink and who wouldn't want to spend a night imbibing some cocktails with them!? Name could also refer to them wanting to be or look more mature, don't think H!P has strict rules about members partaking in drinks on occasion and these are the first batch of cards for their new tour.
