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!
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.

Nogizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #15 and more....
Next member to have a photobook was announced two days ago and the lucky recipient will be.... Hinako!!!! Bit of a surprise but glad to see she has one coming up, she finished #4 on my 'Top Ten Fave Nogi Members' list and I can never get tired of looking at her, her kawaiiness is off the charts. The PB won't be released until June, am already counting the days.
Hope there's more books on the way, as I said it's fabulous that Hinako has one but curious why Miona and Misa aren't scheduled for one. Perhaps they are and those books will be coming out after June but the surprise is theirs didn't/wouldn't come out first.
Bit of a combo post for mag spreads and news about the recent photobooks. On this week's Oricon charts five members made the top eight in sales. Nanase was eighth selling 2.339 copies which is an impressive number considering her second PB came out in September. In the sixth spot was Asuka with her first book, it sold 3.435 copies which brings it's total to about 82,000.
Topping the charts with her first photobook was Manatsu, sales for it were 31,535 copies sold. Seeing as how she's a mid-level popular member that's a high number, hopefully Reika can approach that with her first PB that was released yesterday. Manatsu starts off the mag spreads, three in all for today, with this small set from WPB #12.
On the right hand side halfway down is the top ten most viewed posts for the last month. Mai dominates that list as she has four of the most viewed posts, seems viewers can't get enough of her. Photobook buyers also can't get enough of her as her second PB "Passport" sold 11.461 copies to rank #2 on the charts. That brings the four week total to about 152,000 copies sold and it's approaching the record for most book sales by an Idol, should break it next week.
Lastly for the PB news is for Nanami whose second book ranked fourth on the charts selling 8,100 copies bringing it's total to over 67,000. She's kept true to her word about disappearing, haven't heard zero about her since her graduation but will gather all of her recent things before she left for perhaps her final post. That's not quite true as there will be more Nanami posts in the future but for older happenings.
Ranze has finally made it to the rank of being a Senbatsu member for the next single, she does have many fans out there who are no doubt pleased with her selection. She's been appearing in many more mags recently and this set is from the April issue of Bomb.
Final spread is a huge and stupendous one with sixteen pics of Miona from the March 21st edition of Manga Action. Mentioned above about the photobooks and even though we haven't heard the news of her having her own sure it will eventually happen.
