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.

Nogizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #20
Week two sales for "Influencer" were a bit over 48,000, total right now stands at 923,000 copies sold which puts it about 50,000 behind "Sayonara no Imi" and it should easily top those sales to become the group's best selling single.
Himeka is someone that hasn't been mentioned here for a long time and there's a good reason for that. In January she took a leave of absence from the group for health reasons but she's back now. Next Thursday she'll be turning 21 so hopefully she'll have some new pics as she may deserve a post after being gone for so long. Here's some pics as she was on an NHK radio show Sunday with Sayuri.
No title yet but Misa's first Nogi photobook will be coming out in exactly three weeks, should be the top PB of the decade!
Going to be tough to top Mai's sales as she may have the best selling book of all time for an Idol as sales for her last book are close to 170,000 copies sold. This would have been the best group spread of the year but actually the final one today somehow surpasses this fabulous set of pics. These are from the April 17th issue of Young Magazine, have said a few times how much Misa looks like Erika Toda and she really does in that fourth pic.
Kazumi is a huge fave of mine, she finished second on my first fave member list but she's been way too quiet these last few months. However she returns in stupendous style as these pics from the May UTB are simply jaw-dropping. Also from that issue are Ranze and Hina, all have five pics each.
Mentioned above the final spread could be the best one of the year to date, this will be a tough set of pics to top. This is Hinako's best set of pics ever which is from the May issue of Bubka. She finished fourth on my top ten member's list and think she may have moved up a spot or two with this incredible collection. She also has a photobook coming out though it won't be until June.
