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.

Nogizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #10
Single #17 finally has a title which is "Influencer", no covers or promo pics for it yet except for that one above which is the lineup for the song. The group just did the last of their three birthday concerts yesterday but didn't preview the song which they've usually done with previous singles. Release date for it is March 22nd and sadly it's the start of all singles that won't include Nanami. Her second photobook topped the Oricon charts selling 27,200 copies. What make that impressive is that the PB wasn't released until this Monday so those were just advance sales, she may by #1 again next week. Mai doesn't look too happy as she finished second to her.
Think quite a few mag spreads will be coming out in the next week or so, April issues are being released now so may be back with another post later as there are a few more than these ones. The third generation members are starting to get a bit of a push, wonder if the new members will have a solo song on the next single? The one who seems to be the most popular is Mizuki Yamashita, last mag spread post had two solo sets of her. In the March issue of Bomb she's joined by Shiori Kubo who is another third generation member.
Just three spreads for this post but this second one has over twenty pics. Rina graces the cover of the March 9th issue of Young Jump, who really looks superb is Miona who follows her spread.
From the same issue are more third generation members whose names are on their pics.
Final set is another solo set featuring Mizuki from the March issue of EX-Taishu.
