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...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... 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.... 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.

Yurina Yanagi: 2017 magazine scans #1 and photobook promo event pics/video
Don't post about too many gravure Idols or at least compared to the huge amount of them that are out there. Yurina is oh so close to being #1 in that category, hard to top her overall looks and she finished in the thirteenth position on last year's top twenty list. Know it's hard to to keep your eyes away from some of her features but she really is one cute gal and is also a smart, interesting woman too. Yurina will be turning 23 this April, she got a late start as a model as I think she was attending college.
She's also making the transition to an actress quite nicely, no huge roles yet but she's scheduled to be in four films this year. Yurina just released her first photobook last week, title of it is 'Himitsu" and here's some promo pics from it.
The PB did okay in it's first week out as it made the top ten on the Oricon charts selling over 2,000 copies. That's not a bad number as these days the charts seem to be dominated by J-Pop Idols, Nogi had four members in the top ten.
On February 17th Yurina held a fan signing session for the photobook. You'll see in the pics that her hair is much shorter, she said she cut off 40 cm of it in December for a film role. Plenty of pics here from the event and the pics from the PB were shot in Australia last September, check out a short video at the bottom of the post for the event.
On to the 2017 mag spreads and sadly this first set only has three pics. That bottom one is one deserving of being in the hall of fame, these are from the January 10th issue of Flash.
Every pic in these spreads are certainly breathtaking, just wish the sets were bigger as this is another too small set of pics from WPB #3-4.
Last two spreads have some promo pics for the new PB, these are from the January 27th issue of Friday. Bottom pic says it's Yurina's second PB, didn't know she already had one unless her Bomb-TV collection counts as one.
Final set is another one from Friday and is from their March 3rd edition, after them is the video for last week's photobook fan signing session.
