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...Rena Takeda... Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... Nanase Nishino!.... 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....
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.

The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films.

June 11th.... the new blog is going well but it is much more work so unsure if I want to keep two going. For now will but am going to bring some of those actress posts over here as I know many have missed out on some faves. Actually just may end up transferring all of them over as I'm seriously leaning to going back to one blog, tried having others at one in the past which also proved to take up a lot more time than I expected.

Nogizaka46: Mai Shiraishi "Passport" photobook scans part two

 Sigh, have there been any adjectives created that can describe a pic like that or so many of them from this photobook???? The answer is NO..... Whewwwwwwwwww......................

 If I ever found a lamp with a genie inside don't think I would need three wishes, one would be plenty and you all know what that wish would be!!!! Bet if there was a poll taken 4-5 years ago on who would be the biggest Idol in 2017 Mai's name would not have made the top 50, perhaps even top one hundred. Yet here we are on 2017 and she's easily the hottest Idol around in more ways than one.
 Hope this mega fame hasn't put ideas in her head such as the word graduation. We all know it's going to happen and it wouldn't shock me if it takes place within a year. Mai will be turning 25 in August so she is getting to that age where most Idols leave their group and continue on as an actress or some other job in showbiz. Can't imagine her having a singing career so would think her next logical step would be as a more serious actress or even a talk show host.
 On to the remainder of the pics and as mentioned above there's really no adjectives in the world to describe these pics of perfection, hope you enjoy them and 100% certain that all will. The one complaint is that there was no 'making of' video of the photo shoot.


  1. At times like this I'm glad I identify as a vibrator because Mai can definitely wear my batteries out!

  2. Better use those long lasting batteries, you'd want that night to last forever! Have seem Mai pics when she was 17-19, she looked fine but not even close to what she does today and really didn't stand out compared to other gals. Makes me wonder if a lot of guys in her high school didn't give her the once over twice, bet most didn't and they must be kicking themselves right now!
