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 #8
Sorry for the zero posts since Saturday, been on my death bed since then and have finally risen for a short bit. Luckily not much has happened these last few days, think I've just about recovered from my illness though the nurse has left me a bit too incapacitated if you know what I mean....
Don't know why she's complaining, a week from now she'll have all the time in the world to make that journey. Nothing about Nanami this post, will save her things for a few solo ones. But then again she hasn't done hardly anything this year with the group or in solo activities, she really wants us to forget her before next Monday's graduation date.
More on her in the next few days, Oricon doesn't release their sales figures until tomorrow but had read at a news site that Mai's "Passport" photobook sold over 100,000 copies in it's first week! That would be quite an achievement if it did happen and can't recall if any other Idol has sold that many in a week. Of course the PB may be the best of the last decade so its easy to see how it may have happened....
Asuka's first photobook which came out on January 25th has also done very well as it topped the charts in it's first two weeks out selling a bit over 73,000 copies. That's an impressive number and the group still has three more solo books coming out between now and March 8th. Still no details about the group's 17th single, release date for that is March 22nd.
Just a few mag spreads for today but there will be a slew of them coming out soon as the April issues will be coming out at the end of the month. With the new single and books being released know there will be too many to keep up with but that's how I like it. Hinako was seemingly everywhere from last July to October and since then she's kind of disappeared, wouldn't mind a PB featuring her. Ayane joins her in this set of pics from the March issue of Bomb.
Asuka seems to appear in the editions of Samurai ELO quite often, this is about the fourth month in a row and these are from their March issue.
Nanase's second PB keeps selling steady, not positive of my estimate but think it's sold around 110,000 copies to date and it appears Mai may come close to that in just one week. Final set of pics for this post are from the March issue of EX-Taishu.
