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!
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 #30 and Nanase's new Meiji CM
That's actually one of the covers for Nogi's second album. No covers for their third album have been released yet but it does finally have a title which is "Umarete Kara Hajimete Mita Yume", doesn't roll off my tongue so well. It'll be coming out on May 24 and there are four versions of the album, on it will be the group's last three singles along with quite a few new songs and there are plenty of videos to go along with the new tunes.
Once the covers come out will be posting them, it appears to be an okay album though not as impressive as their second one as I had wished they waited a little longer before releasing this album. On to the mag spreads and once again an entire issue will take up the whole post. That's been happening quite often this year as the group's spreads have become so huge and no doubt that's due to their sky high popularity. These are all from the June issue of Entame which is a special edition, close to 35 pics of the members were in the mag. Starting off with Nanase and have her new CM for Meiji at the bottom of the post.
Asuka may not be the most popular member of Nogi though she's probably third these days and rarely is there a mag without a spread with her.
Here's a pair I've never see together which is Misa whose first group photobook came out last week. Joining her is Manatsu who also recently just had her first PB released and it's sold close to 50,000 copies, the first and last pics easily rate an A+.
Chiharu is my fave current Undergirl member, she's a very attractive woman and a smart one too as she's just finished her second year of college. Following her is Minami who had been so quiet for a long time but this is her second solo spread in a week.
Way too small of a spread which features the duo of Marika and Sayuri.
Last Entame set has Himeka and it's her first spread since she came back from her health break, she's truly looking terrific in these pics.
Five members have done some CM's for Meiji's 'Milk Chocolate' drink, about one came out every week since the end of March. The final one belongs to Nanase and have her behind the scenes video here for you to enjoy, least she wasn't too zombieish in the video.
