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 #23- Third generation members from UTB

 This is a first here which is a post just for the third generation members. This spread is so huge there really was no choice but actually it's a good thing as I didn't know too many of them. Have already introduced three of them which were Mizuki, Yuuki and Shiori who all have had multiple solo posts. The first episode for season eight of 'NOGIBINGO' was dedicated to the new gals, once the second episode gets subbed will be doing posts for those shows.
 Back in September Nogi added eleven new members to their ranks which seems to be quite a few, that means there's a total of 25 Undergirls which is why there may have been 21 Senbatsu members for the last single. Won't be introducing the other eight members tonight but will slowly be doing that over the course of all these Nogi posts, will have another post or more for these new members.
 Will have two new members that I'll introduce you to, looking through these pics they caught my eye. Especially this first one who looks quite a bit like Mai or should I say when she was 18 as very women in the world look anywhere closed to her stunning looks. This here is Minami Umezawa who has the best pics in today's spread. Minami celebrated her 18th b-day in January, she's the tallest member at 170 cm or about 66 inches and you'll be seeing much more of her.

 Second introduction for this post is for Kaede Sato who turned 19 on March 23rd. She won a 'Miss Campus Queen' contest back in 2015, that's what the second pic is from. Have a trivia fact that you can impress your friends with which is that Kaede is the only member who spells her name with just three Kanji, checked all of the member's names and she does hold that honor.

 Would think that no new gal will be promoted to the Senbatsu ranks for a few singles, that would be unfair to the members who have been there for 3-4 years and still only have B-side tunes. Those members make up the Undergirls who have a trio of concerts coming up, think the first one is this Thursday. They do put on a good show and hopefully will be able to obtain one of the performances. Sure the new third generation members will be there too, now all of a sudden I'm looking forward to viewing a show.
 On to the mag spread which is the only one for today but at 34 pics it's the size of about five spreads. Won't tell you the names of all eleven members, their names are on the pics so you can easily see who is who and before I forget these are from the April issue of UTB.
EDIT: Final six pics had a Keya46 member, thanks for a commenter's heads up so deleted them.


  1. eh wait didnt you say as of now you wont be posting keya46 photo, or wasnt you?? lol

  2. Lol? Did say that about Keya46 and I won't be doing posts for them but all of these here are newish members of Nogi. We'll be seeing them for many, many years so need to slowly start introducing the members though I will try to stay away from the youngest ones.

  3. the last 6 pics are of harada aoi and yes, she is in keyakizaka, not nogi

  4. Thanks, deleted them as I didn't look close enough at all of the pics.
