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- a little of this and that....
Reika's first photobook "Jiyu to Iukoto" was released today, don't know if she has many fans here but I'm certainly one and quite happy that she finally has a PB. Reika looks ultra superb to me but her looks aren't in the same vein as the other popular members, hopefully this book will have a fabulous set of pics to garner her a few more fans. There was an event held today for the photobook, will be back later with a post for it but am waiting to see if a video for it is released.
Here's a few pics Reika has posted on her blog for the PB plus a few from the photo shoot. The pics for the PB were shot in Malaysia and by her looks it appears as though one side of her family may have come from there.
Haven't been posting too many cards this last month but will be doing so very soon.
Have been holding back a few Reika mag spreads for this solo post, really need to do more of them for the Captain of Nogi. There's not always enough new happenings for her or other Senbatsu members but will check out some older things which haven't been posted here yet. This first set, like all of them, are promoting the new PB and this terrific set of pics is from the February issue of
EX-Taishu, that bottom pic easily rates an A++++.
Actually this small set was posted about a month ago and is from the special Flash issue 'Best of Winter 2017', Reika looks so good it deserved an encore.
Brand new spread here for the PB which is from the March 14th issue of Flash.
Really wish there were more spreads as Reika looks A-OK in all of those pics.
Another new happening is that Reika will be appearing on an NHK show titled "Hangul Course on TV", it'll be airing on it's e-tele channel. The show is about learning the Korean language, she's been studying up and said she's slowly getting better. The show had it's premiere today and will be airing every Wednesday. On March 7th there was a press conference for the show along with the other language shows as there's also going to be two more for learning English and Chinese.
Thought I saw a video for that event but couldn't find it on YT. However Reika did do a short promo video for her first PB which you can view here, would love to see one for the photo shoot.
