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.

Mirei Kiritani: Two new mag spreads plus more....
Except for one Y! Mobile event last month haven't heard much of Mirei since her last drama ended in September. She does have a new series starting in April titled "Hito wa Mitame ga 100 Percent". Looks like another one of those lighthearted sappy dramas which don't appeal to me so may take a pass on it. Actually her last 3-4 shows haven't been nearly as interesting as her older dramas, hope she snaps out of that funk soon. Not sure of the exact start date but will let you know so you can mark it on her April calendar.
No new films for 2017 are scheduled yet for Mirei, still can't understand why she hasn't been in more since 2015. Her last starring role was in "No Longer Heroine" and that film proved to be a massive hit staying in the top ten for seven weeks, yet since then no starring role in a film which kind of baffles me and probably her many other fans.
Mirei has been doing promo work for Angel Heart watches for many years, she used to appear at events or do CM's for them but that hasn't been the case recently. However do have some brand new pics from their site for their Spring collection.
Just two new mag spreads and this first one is superb from the March edition of Mina.
Spreads these days are much more conservative then they were years ago, this small set is from the March issue of Voce. After the pics check out a newish Mirei CM for Kose which also features a short behind the scenes segment.
