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 #12 and more....
Details of the group's 17th single "Influencer" have finally been released. There will be seven songs in all along with a few different versions of the songs but you have to buy all of the four CD versions to get them all. An old AKB trick to get the fans to buy more singles, be nice if their management didn't just think of $$ and perhaps have everything on one mini album. There's also a DVD version for the single and here are all of the five covers. Also the new third generation members will have their first song.
Manatsu's first photobbook was released today, unsure if there will be an event for it bit would think so. When it does happen will do a post on it along with a new mag spread for her. Reika also has a new superb spread and will hold off on that for a solo post or two for her as she also has her first PB coming out and that will happen on March 8th.
Have two more pics for the group's 5th anniversary for two members that we haven't seen too much of lately. It's understandable why we haven't seen Erika recently as she's starring in the "Romeo and Juliet"play, she also will be starring in another one that starts in May. Misa though has kind of disappeared the last few months, with Nanami graduating she has moved up to the top spot for my fave Nogi member. However we do need to see more of her, at a loss on explaining why she's been AWOL but she will be the cover girl for the April issue of Bubka.
Last year there were more posts for mag spreads than ever but to me it seems as the total amount of mags the members appear in have gone down just a tad. Their older spreads were much smaller as they consisted of five or so pics. These days the spreads are so much bigger and it seems most are at least ten pages or more. So what was once a post with five spreads equaling 25 pics now is two spreads with the same amount of pics.
Two spreads are what we have today but they total up to be 33 pics! First off is from the March issue of EX-Taishu with 21 pics, posted Nanase's set yesterday which had at least ten pics. Most members are in this issue including Nanami in what will probably be her last pic for the mag.
Broke this set down to make it easier to view as Erika starts off the second half of this large set of pics form the march edition of EX-Taishu, the 5th one with Hinako is my fave of them all.
Been seeing more of Nanase lately which is a good thing after a brief spell her not being in as many mags but it's also good to let other members have a chance to appear in more mags. She's joined by Reika and Rina from the Flash special issue 'Best of Winter 2017'.
