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.

Nana Yamada: Magazine scans #4 and some new happenings....
One day I'll eventually get around to doing a top twenty list for my all time Idols, though there are thousands of them figuring out my top twenty or perhaps twenty five wouldn't be too difficult. Trying to place them in a position would be so extremely hard though at least there hasn't been much change in the last year.
Nana easily has a spot on that list and would imagine she'd be in the top ten, actually with the name of Nana the seventh spot would be ideal for her. Hottest Idols of all time would be a different story, she'd be in the running for the top spot. Nana has her first starring role in a film coming out in eleven days, have more info on that at the bottom of the post.
First three posts for older mag spreads covered the years of 2013 to present and there were quite a few dazzling sets. Prior to 2013 it's not as easy finding solo spreads for her and most NMB members. So think for future mag posts will feature this trio as they appeared together in so many mag spreads from 2010-13.
Nana celebrated her 25th birthday on April 3rd, that was also the second anniversary of her graduation from NMB. She's been busy but mainly with dramas and variety shows, looks like she's given up her singing career which most Idols do when they graduate. Nana has her own show on Kawaiian TV called 'Nana to Middle', it's up to episode 27 and it's mainly a show of her traveling to different locations. She ends up meeting up with various types of people and doing activities with them, it's a fairly easy show to find.
On to a few spreads, as mentioned not so many solo ones from years gone by but will have those trio spreads coming up soon. Think this one here is Nana's first major solo set which is from Bomb-TV for May 2011.
Small set here which was a group spread but just have Nana's solo pics from Young Magazine for August 2011.
Nana has Instagram and Twitter accounts which she updates quite often. These are some pics from the last few weeks from them, some pics are for her celebrating her 25th b-day.
Nana's acting career seems to be going well, not a star yet but she does keep quite busy. She's been in two stage plays and has a third that begins in August titled "Mid Summer Carol", news of that just came out a few days ago.
"Mustard Chocolate" is the title of Nana's first starring role in a film. Looks to be a quirky movie and her two previous stage plays have been along those lines. The film opens up on April 29th and will have a post for it. On April 11th the first screening for the movie took place, have a few pics here from it along with a video of the event.
