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 #25
Keep thinking there haven't been as many mag spreads this year compared to previous ones but going at a pace for about eighty of them which is about the number there was last year. What I once mentioned and think it's true is that the group aren't in as many mags but the spreads are so much bigger, there's three for today but they total forty pics.
Sales for single #17 "Influencer" remain strong as it sold 11,000+ copies last week to rank tenth on the Oricon charts in it's fourth week out. That brings the total sales to 952,500 so finally reaching a million in sales shouldn't be a problem. That figure will probably happen around May 24th, on that date the group's still untitled third album will be released.
Many upcoming spreads for the members and as you can see above Mai will be featured in the Cecil McBee Spring/Summer catalog, she is in such demand as she could be the most popular gal in Japan these days.
Really just two spreads for today but one of the issues had two sets in them. First off though is the graduated member Mai F. who was extremely popular here before she left Nogi last June. Her acting career is slowly getting busier, she's had a few minor roles in some TV dramas plus her first stage play "Skip" opens up on April 27th. This huge spread from the April 28th edition of TV Plus is promoting the play and think she needs to teach Nanami once you graduate that doesn't mean you have to disappear!
Asuka's popularity, like many other members, is at a sky high level these days. She seems to appear in more mags than anyone else and quite often has the cover for them. Having the cover is what she has in this fine set of pics from the Flash 'Best of Spring' issue.
There are eleven third generation members who joined Nogi last September, we've been seeing more of them recently in mags plus they just a few solo concerts this week with the longtime Undergirls. Mizuki seems to be the most popular to date as she has appeared in more mags than any of the new members, here she is with Shiori in another set from the special Flash magazine.
Had wanted to do a solo post for Misa this week but there just weren't enough new pics for one. Her first photobook as a Nogi member comes out next Tuesday, sure she'll have an event for that plus she's going to be the cover girl for the next issue of Young Magazine.
Top two pics are promo ones for the PB, Misa is also one of five members to be featured in new CM's for Meiji's 'Milk Tea' drink and you can view her behind the scenes video after the pics.
