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.

C-ute: France and Mexico concert pics/video plus more happenings....
Let the countdown begin, was suggested by Nogi that we begin it with 46(!) days to go before their final June 12th performance. But in these 46 days the gals are going to be busier than ever, above are two pics from their final album "Complete Single Collection". That will be coming out next Wednesday, it's perhaps the most impressive CD collection I've ever seen.
Two days before that C-ute will be releasing their final group photobook. Surprisingly it's not that expensive as CDJapan has it for $16.64 which is much less than most books, hopefully it doesn't mean it's a small PB.
What's really expensive are new member cushions that will be coming out a week after their final concert, these are $41.61, not that sure you'd want them on your sofa but they would definitely impress your mates.
Will have more info next week on those two releases, C-ute is also doing so many concerts between now and June 12th as they're really going out with a bang. My latest acquisition was the "2015 Future Departure Tour" DVD, no one puts on a more entertaining show than these gals. The show lasted for 140 minutes as they played over thirty songs, it took place at the Yokohama arena. Highly recommend any C-ute DVD, I've viewed about ten now and once you start on them you can't stop.
Will also have another Airi solo post next week, she's had so many of them this year as she's been super busy and will have plenty of fine looking pics of her as she's become quite popular here.
On to the concerts, this is the second time C-ute has traveled to France and Mexico for a concert. They only played one show each in Paris and Sala Corona but there were also fan meetings in both cities, still can't believe they couldn't make the short trip north to America,
The concert in Mexico took place on April 13, the pics here are from the show. So many of them didn't include any from the Paris show but may do another post for it. But a terrific bonus is that after these pics you can watch a portion of their Paris show, the video is 38 minutes and the group usually plays for two or so hours.
