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.

Keyakizaka46: The 'Akane Moriya post' #1
Hard to do a post for Akane or Yuuka without mentioning the other one as the pair appears together in so many mag spreads and at events.
That's Akane on the left in both pics. Yuuka is Keya's captain while Akane is the sub captain. Both of the gals were appointed to their positions on January 21st, here are some pics from the press conference announcing their selections and was also promoting their appearance on that night's 'Showroom'.
Akane is currently nineteen and will be hitting the age of twenty this November, seems most Keya members are in the 19-21 range. Perhaps in the future will determine what the actual stats are as it appears to me Keya is a bit of a tall group, much more than Nogi. Akane's height is 163 cm which would make her a tall Nogi member but one of the shorter ones in Keya.
Plenty of fine looking mag spreads today and all of them are for 2017 as the group's appearances in mags has really increased this year. Mentioned that Akane and Yuuka have done many spreads together, posted this one a few days ago but it's so terrific it needed an encore and this superb set of pics is from the April issue of Bomb.
One more non-solo spread which is from the group's first anniversary book. Of course Yuuka is in the spread and the pair are joined by Rika.
Akane does have quite a few solo spreads for this year so far and will say that her pics may be the best of any member. Starting off with a smaller set which is from volume two of Sprout.
Actually five pics isn't that small of a spread as it's the same size as this one which is from Young Magazine #12.
This could be the best set of pics from all of these spreads as Akane really looks incredible, from volume 15 of BLT Graph.
Most of these spreads are fairly good sized, may be a few more upcoming for this year but for Akane's next post will be concentrating on 2016. These are from the February edition of Brody.
Had really wanted to post a video of the "Wareta Smartphone" song which is one of the B-Sides from the group's last single "Fukyuowaon". To me that could be the #1 song of the year so far but there's no good video for it on YT. Actually there is a cut from last month's 'AKB Show' where Keya hijacked it for an episode but the problem was the song has no audio. The song consisted of the five members Akane, Manaka, Rika, Risa and Yuuka.
The fivesome had a group name for the song which was/is 'Aozora to Marry'. Highly recommend the tune and it's really worth hunting down, perhaps there's a version on Daily Motion as they're not as strict as YT. But do have short video from the 'KeyaBingo!' show as Manami H. guested on it and Akane looked a tad uncomfortable. And that 'AKB Show' is #148 and it's available at a few sites subbed in English.
