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.

Rena Takeda: WPB #12 scans plus a few other new happenings....
Nogi's 17th single comes out this Wednesday so it's a bit surprising we haven't seen more of the group promoting it, perhaps they think they're so huge these days they don't have to work as hard? Usually they attend events like the Kansai Spring/Summer fashion show but they didn't appear at the event which was held today, more on that later on.
But a fine substitute for a Nogi post is one for Rena, after them her she's probably the most popular gal here though Nogi does have the advantage with having so many members. There haven't been as many Rena mag spreads so far this year, she's been concentrating more on her acting career. She'll be appearing in three films coming out later this year along with a drama. That show is titled "Million Yen Women" which starts next month on TV Tokyo and looks like her role will be fairly big. Appears to be an interesting and quirky mystery as there's five women living in the same apartment who each pay a rent of one million yen.
As you can see she's not the only Rena in the drama, that's a show I'm definitely going to try to check out. Rena has a Line blog which she updates quite often with many pics, here are some from the last month.
Rena's first and only photobook "Short" was released last March, think it's time for her second one. That was an okay book but she looks so much better these days, not that there was anything wring with her a year ago!
This spread from WPB #12 is a mini book with eleven pics titled 'Sweet 19 Memories'. Rena will be turning 20 in July, she's been around so long you'd think she would be older than that.
On March 19th Rena was at the Kansai Spring/Summer fashion show which was held at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka. The show just ended an hour ago and these are really big events as last year's show drew 38,000 fans. Rena is usually at these fashion shows, at today's event she didn't model any kind of clothing line. Instead she was doing some promoting for 'Cafe and Pakakes', she's done a few CM's for them in the past and you can view one after the pics.
