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...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... 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 #21- Many more from the May UTB plus....
Nogi has been promoting Meiji products for over four years, they have some CM's that are coming out and have that info after the mag spread which is quite a huge one. In other news the group's third album is coming out on May 24th, that's exactly one year since their second album "Sorezore no Isu" was released.
So far there's no title for the album but the release date is still seven weeks away. Seems a bit early for another album, Nogi has only released three singles since that last album so there must be a lot of new songs for it or why else would their fans but it? Yesterday posted a few spreads from the May issue of UTB but there's many more members who were featured in the edition which also goes by the name of 'Purple Chronicle'. Over forty pics in all and starting off with Kana, she doesn't appear in too many spreads but when she does she usually looks quite good as these pics definitely prove.
A long time fave of mine from the group is Yuuri and she finished in the top ten on my first 'Fave Nogi Members' list. She's been getting many more spreads since she got promoted to a Senbatsu member and hope she stays there for now on, with 21 members on the last single you would think a few may be dropped for the next one.
This is the biggest set of them all from the magazine, it features Asuka and Minoa. Those two seem to be good friends and wonder why they don't appear together that often?
The final set belongs to Mai who surprisingly had the least amount of pics in this UTB issue.
Last December five members had CM's for Meiji's Milk Chocolate drink. Four of them are returning with new ones except for Himeka who was on leave from Nogi since January due to health problems but just returned a few days ago. She was replaced by Marika who looks fairly good in her pic. A new CM comes out every week, the campaign began this week which just means one video so far. That belongs to Sayuri and you can view it after these pics, also with a CM coming out is Mai, Nanase and Misa.
