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...Rena Takeda... Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... Nanase Nishino!.... 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....
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.

The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films.

June 11th.... the new blog is going well but it is much more work so unsure if I want to keep two going. For now will but am going to bring some of those actress posts over here as I know many have missed out on some faves. Actually just may end up transferring all of them over as I'm seriously leaning to going back to one blog, tried having others at one in the past which also proved to take up a lot more time than I expected.

Nogizaka46: More from the June Entame and new blog pics....

 Know Misa's book will top the Oricon charts when they announce last week's numbers on Thursday, be nice if it could top 50,000 in sales. Of course no member will come close to Mai's sales for her "Passport" PB which sold over 103,000 in it's first week. But think Asuka's book sold about 58,000 in it's first week so coming close to that number would be impressive.
 What's also impressive is that single #17 "Influencer" continues to sell well. In it's fifth week out it was #8 on the charts selling 10,236 copies and the total is now close to 963,000. The group has never had an official million seller but they should hit that mark in a few more weeks.
 Last post had 35 pics from the June edition of Entame but there were even more than that. The new third generation members have really been appearing in so many mags recently and four of them grace the cover with the four being Mizuki, Momoko, Shiori and Yuuki.

 Think this should be the last set of pics from the Entame mag. Just two solo pages of Miona but she's also joined by Hinako and more third generation members with the bottom pics being from the photo shoot.

 Himeka took a leave of absence from January until March because of health reasons. Before she left she was one of the group's best at keeping her blog updated and she's picked up right where she left off. Also with eight pics is Chiharu who to me is #1 at keeping their blog updated, also no member's looks have improved as much as hers over the last year.

 Miria is also another member who does a superb job with her blog entries, she has slowed down a bit recently but think that's because the Undergirls have been doing some concerts lately. Following her pics is her Undergirl mate Ayane, she's by far the shyest Nogi member but she did start to open up a bit more towards the end of season seven of 'NOGIBINGO!'.

Erika Toda: "Blade of the Immortal" movie premiere pics

 Admit I've been too lazy as of late with the drama recaps, do promise to start on Erika's "Reverse" series very soon as the third episode aired Friday. First show received a rating of 10.3% which is a good number for Friday nights, for some reason the second show dropped all the way down to 6.3% and have no clue why that happened.
 Erika will be in two dramas this year as the third season of 'Code Blue' begins in July but this appears to be her only film. She did a few recent interviews for the film, top five pics are from the Woman Type website while the others are from Top Site.

 As you can tell both interviews were done on the same day by the way she was dressed. Don't think she has the lead female role in the "Blade of the Immortal" movie though it's a good sized one. Star of the film is Takuya Kimura, one of Erika's first drama roles was with him in "Engine" which was a fairly good show.
 The premiere took place April 29th at the Marunouchi Piccadilly Theater in Tokyo. Still wish Erika could gain a few pounds but she has been looking rather stupendous as of late and these pics surely back that up. Bit shocked there's no good video of the event on YT as it happened over a day ago. If one does come out in the next few days will have it in her next post so instead after these A++++ pics you can view the film's trailer.
