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... Erina Mano... 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 #22 and more....

 Have done some oldie posts for Nanami and Nanase but none for Mai, that'll be something then I'll be working on. Those pics above are from 2012 and will try to have her missing things from 2012 to 2014. To me Mai has changed the most since Nogi started, she was attractive five years ago but compared to these days there's no comparison. Then again you have to remember she was just 19/20 back then and will be turning 25 this August.

 Not too many new mag spreads for today but the first one is so terrific know all Misa fans would want to view it. Misa's first photobook as a Nogi member is coming out on April 25th, that should an Earth holiday for the occasion and the cover for it has just been released.

 Misa did have a PB before she joined Nogi, posted that book many years ago and what a superb collection of pics it was. Before she joined the group in late 2011 she was also chosen as 'Miss Magazine 2011', some pics from an event for the mag which took place early in that year.

 She's another one whose looks have changed, that's to be expected as she was just eighteen at the time of those pics. Misa was also a former member of the J-Pop group CHIMO, she appeared on four of their singles. Hard finding pics from way back then as she joined them in 2009 but will work on that for her next solo post.

 On to the first spread which is promoting the upcoming photobook. These pics are from the April 28th edition of Friday, Misa is now setting records for dazzlement and that third pic is beyond description but all of the pics surely rate an A++++.

 Third generation members are represented in this next spread which is from volume 120 of Marquee, this small set features Shiori Kubo.

 Also from the Marquee issue are Mizuki and Yuki who seem to be getting popular very quickly and both have appeared in so many mags already.

 Final spread features the trio of Asuka, Hinako and Ranze from the May issue of Top Yell.

 The third generation members had their own solo song on the 'Influencer" single which are what these cards are for. They'll probably have at least one new song on Nogi's third album which is coming out at the end of May. Members here are Shiori, Yuki, Mizuki and Momoko.


  1. Are you scheduled to post Sakurai Reika's PB and Akimoto Manatsu one?

  2. Yes, will be posting them but like to have enough of a gap from when a book comes out and when the pics are posted here.
