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.

Yui Aragaki: 'Gakky from the Vault' #1



 Shame Gakky's singing career ended in 2010, thought her songs were better than most J-Poppers back then. Did read in a 2011 interview that she missed singing, she said she enjoyed it more than acting. At the top it says #1, may change that as I'd bet this would be at least the tenth post for older Gakky happenings.
 Think four other faves have a 'from the vault' series but never thought of labeling her older happenings that way. Bit of a slow stretch so figured it was a good time to start this series off, actually yesterday's post for her would have been #1 but it did have some new things.
 Not going to be a central theme for this post or most of the ones for Gakky's older things, by that I mean anything before 2011 as I think most of her happenings since then have been posted about. These are all new pics too as I'm positive none of them have been posted before. Most of these posts will be for the years 2008-10 but may have a few items before that such as this first Gakky mag spread which is from the November 2006 issue of Kindai. Spread was for her current drama at the time "My Boss, My Hero" which was such an entertaining watch.




 This spread from the October 26, 2008 issue of WPB is promoting Gakky's "Fure Fure Girl" film. That too was an entertaining watch and did recap the movie a few years ago. Should feel guilty for saying it but I prefer Gakky's dramas and films from 2005-09 much more than her current ones.




 Last spread is another one for the film and is from the November 2008 issue of BLT.







 Think Gakky holds the record for hosting the 'Girls Locks!' radio show longer than anyone else, she was the host of the show one week a month from October 2006 to December 2010. Have some pics here from their July 2008, pics are kind of small but was surprised the site still had them.











 One last 2008 happening here as Gakky was at a promo event for Mitsuya Cider, this March marks the tenth anniversary she's been doing CM's for them and have perhaps her first one after the pics.
