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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Nogizaka46: Reika Sakurai "Jiyu to Iukoto" photobook promo event pics
Wow, that bottom pic is something else, if the rest of the PB is like that....
Tough competition for Reika's first photobook and those rivals vying for sales are all of her Nogi mates. First Asuka topped the charts with her first PB, sales are around 80,000 copies sold to date. Then Mai's second book set all sorts of records selling over 100 K in it's first week out and may top the 150,000 mark once last week's figures are released tomorrow.
Manatsu's first PB came out last week and bet it's got a chance to be the fourth member to be #1 on the Oricon charts. Third person who was number one on their charts was Nanami with her second book and sales were 59,000 copies sold after two weeks. Speaking of Nanami kind of wonder if there wasn't something going on with her and....
No behind the scenes video from that pic, nor was there one from today's event. Usually there aren't videos for Nogi events but think Mai had one for her photobook, if one does come out in the next few days will have it in a group post.
This is Reika's first PB and she looks quite dazzling in the few pics I've seen. The pics were shot in Malaysia, most members travel to exotic or faraway places for their photo shoots. This event, like most, took place today at the Fukuya Bookstore in Shinjuku. Title of the book can also mean freedom, didn't read it in any of the articles for the event but had read attendance was lottery based so you probably had to order the PB in advance to have a shot at attending.
