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... Yuko Oshima... 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: The 'Mai Shiraishi post' #17
Hate the way she's always so blunt around here but she's dead on with that thought, sure a blog devoted just to her would be the most popular on the web these days. Mai's second photobook "Passport" just keeps on selling beyond belief, this week it once again topped the Oricon charts selling a little over 5,200 copies. That brings the overall total to 186,000+ so they may need to once again print extra copies as so far 200,000 books have been printed.
With pics like that it's easy to see why so many books have been sold but selling close to 200,000 was probably a figure no one thought would be reached. It had been over two years since Mai's first PB had been released, there will be no gap like that for book #3 and wouldn't be surprised if we see that within a year.
On to some new pics and there's a slew of them today, think about fifty or more. First off are some recent Nogi cards for Mai which hadn't been posted yet, actually all of these mag spreads and video are new for here.
These first two mag spreads are simply beyond perfect, there really are no more adjectives left to use for Mai. This breathtaking set is from the May 3rd issue of Anan.
Whew, if your heart was able to take the above pics have somehow an even more perfect set of Mai pics from the May 12th issue of Friday. Looks like these are outtakes from the photobook, how can jaw-dropping pics like these be considered outtakes?!
That second to last pic is truly too good to be true. Much more conservative set of Mai pics here from the June edition of Ray, she's been an exclusive model for them since 2014.
Mai will be featured in the upcoming Spring/Summer collection for Cecil McBee. Have two promo pics from the site along with some behind the scenes ones from the photo shoot. After all of them you can view a short promo video for the collection. On an added note she'll be representing them at the next 'Girls Awards' show, many Nogi members will be taking their turns on the catwalk and that event is coming up at the end of May.
