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.

Anna Ishibashi: Some older happenings from 2011(!)
Lately I just can't get enough of Anna, have known about her for well over three years but for some unsound reason it's taken her this long to grab a hold of me.... hope she doesn't let me go! Anna has a new drama that will be airing on WOWOW starting in June titled "Miyazawa Kenji no Shokutaku", will keep you updated on the news of that series as she's rapidly become quite popular here.
Anna has appeared in so many dramas and films over the years but it seems these days Idols monopolize mag spreads so her and many other deserving actresses don't appear in their fair share. Have posted most of her spreads from 2104 to present but will double check to see if any were missed. Lot of catching up to do for Anna, she turned 18 in 2010 so we can go back plenty of years for her activities, still have that loose rule about posting about gals under 18.
Today everything is from 2011, have some promo event pics and a good amount of spreads though none of them are too big. These days I can only think of a handful of women who top Anna so naturally I want to see her spreads ten or plus pages, most here aren't even half that number. First set is from the March issue of Get Navi, that comment Your New Favorite Girl is right on the money.
Somewhat of a big spread which is from the June 30th issue of Shukan Bunshun, it's promoting her first photobook.
Pair of small spreads as they each just have two pics, these are from Dime and Samurai ELO.
Last set is of course sadly a small one and it's from the December edition of Entame.
That above spread was promoting the "Across Brooklyn Bridge" film which came out on December 17th. Wanted to post some pics from it's premiere but have been unable to find any which is very strange, perhaps there wasn't one? On June 23rd though there was a press conference for the movie.
Anna has three photobooks so far with the first one simply titled "Anna". It came out on June 25, 2011 which was two weeks before her 19th birthday. There was a hand shaking event for the PB on the following day which was held at the Fukuya Bookstore in Shinjuku. Plenty of pics here from the event, first one is the cover and surprisingly found a video of it which you can view after these pics.
Next up may have another post for Anna's 2011 activities, don't think there's any more mag spreads but she did attend quite a few premieres and promo events during the year. After that will keep these catch up posts coming and will move on to 2012.
