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.
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 one
Nobody seems to know what the official record is for photobook sales but most seem to think it's in the 140-150,000 range. Soon there will be an official number as this PB has sold 122,000 copies already in two weeks. We all knew it'd be a huge seller but not to the extent that it is, two more solid weeks of selling 15,000 copies and it'll be the new #1 PB for total sales.
Wonder if Mai or any other Idols get bonuses for sales or do they just get paid a flat fee? Hopefully she has a bonus as Nogi's management must be working overtime to count up the profits. Pics for the PB were shot in LA and San Diego last September, surprised the local citizens didn't tie Mai down to prevent her from leaving the country!!!! Enough of the babbling as there's a vast amount of stupendous pics for all of you to savor, 120 in all between this and the next post.
