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.

Sayaka Yamamoto: A little of this and that for 2017 #1....

 Usually don't miss Idols too much when they graduate but that hasn't been the case with Miyuki. Her graduation from NMB took place last August, at the time she said she had no definite plans for her future and that statement has been true as she's done zero since then. Will be looking a bit harder for current info on her as Miyuki to me has to be one of the top five hottest Idols ever so hopefully can have a post for her in the next few days.
 Don't think she and Sayaka were the closest of friends but the pair are in so many pics together, that would have been a fabulous 'pairs post' and perhaps it'll still happen. Since that graduation NMB has only released one single which was their 16th, no news of when their next one will be coming out. Sayaka still remains busy though, surprised she hasn't announced any plans for her graduation as she really doesn't need the group these days. Last October she released her first solo album "Rainbow" which did well on the charts and has sold around 70,000 copies. There was also a tour for the album and a DVD of it is coming out on April 28th.

 Each June as most AKB fans know they announce the results of their Senbatsu elections. Sayaka keeps moving up each year, she's been in six of them and her results since 2011 have been 28, 18, 14, 6, 6 and last year fourth. Going to be tough keeping that climb going as the competition is intense at the top, this may be the first year she drops a position or two but it's been an impressive streak.
Edit: Was just reading a few interviews on the web and from what she was saying she may not be participating in this year's elections, will have more in her next post.
 Just the second post of the year for her, first one was back in January with many new mag spreads. Since then there's only been one solo spread which is from the April issue of Smart.

 Few recent AKB and NMB cards.

 On March 29th Sayaka released her first essay book....

.... which is titled "Subete no Riyu", translates over to All Reasons. She's been making the rounds at many websites promoting the essay book and these pics here are from a new interview for Modelpress and it's actually a fairly long and interesting interview.

 On April 3rd Sayaka held an event for the book's release, at it she also dropped a few hints about her possibly graduating. Won't be too soon as she will be appearing on AKB's next single which comes out at the end of May, surprisingly there were no good videos from this event.
