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.

Kasumi Arimura: Many recent happenings....
Above is a new Kasumi CM for Ito En Tea, more about that at the bottom as there was a promo event for the CM. Have mentioned two women that could possibly be my #1 for this year's 'Top Faves', in all honesty though it could easily be Kasumi as she's one of the few faves of mine that have been very busy this year and she looks better than ever.
Kasumi currently has the lead role in the NHK asadora "Hiyokko", asadora is the word used for morning dramas. Ratings have been solid as been noticing most episodes are getting 19+% though the ratings may be a tad lower than previous shows. These dramas consist of 156 episodes and will be airing until September 30th.
Because these series are so long quite a few members of the cast come and go. On April 26th Kasumi was at a press conference as a few new people were added to the cast. You'll see in the bottom two pics Haruka is one of the new actresses in the drama, just did a post for her last week and failed to put the tidbit in the post.
Have four recent mag spreads, all are naturally terrific but these days Kasumi unfortunately doesn't do as many jaw-dropping spreads like she once did.
First set was a missed one which is from the March 30th edition of Tokyo Walker Plus.
For the May 16th issue of SPA!, she was the cover gal but sadly the set was only two pages.
Kasumi does look mighty fabulous in 100% of the pics but as mentioned the spreads are more conservative these days. This A+ set of pics is from the June issue of With.
All of the four spreads featured her on the magazine's cover, from the June issue of Maquia.
Usually when you have the lead role in a morning drama it doesn't leave you a lot of time for other activities. That hasn't been the case this year for Kasumi as she's been at quite a few promo events, premieres and screenings.
On May 18th she was at a press conference for Ito En's 'Oi O O Tea'. it was promoting some CM's for the new tea and that top video is one of them. Plenty of superb pics here from yesterday's event along with a video of it.
