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!
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.

Juri Takahashi: Magazine scans #2
AKB's eighth album "Thumbnail" naturally topped the charts in it's first week out selling 609,000 copies. Quite impressive as even Nogi can't come close to that number but it is the lowest first week sales for an album since 2011. So many popular members have left since then of course the sales are eventually going to go down, in a way kind of think of AKB these days as a cover group. Say that because only 3-4 members have been there a while and at concerts or on TV shows the group still performs those old tunes which made the group so popular in the first place. Except for those 3-4 members done performing the tunes had anything to do with them.
Though she won't be turning twenty until later on this year Juri is someone who has been with the group for a while and she'll be celebrating her sixth anniversary this April. Most new members since 2011 don't do much for me though Juri is different, plan on keeping up with her happenings and will have one more post for her older mag spreads. She plays the character Iwashi on the "Cabasuka Gakuen" drama, just watched episodes seven and eight earlier. Hopefully will finish off the last two shows tomorrow and will post about all four this weekend.
Juri looks second best in the show, hard to top Jurina and being second is quite a feat considering how many '48' members are in the show. Have a few older spreads today but starting off with an ultra fabulous set of Juri pics from the January 17th issue of Manga Action.
Two older spreads are both from last January, first off is this set from volume 29 of UTB+.
Juri is joined by Yuria in this fine collection of pics from Bubka.
