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.

 Back much sooner than I said with the next pair of recaps, thought I was going to do the next set this weekend. One reason is that this has been a fairly good show and really want to see what happens next. Also there's a few other current dramas I'd like to view so need to finish this one first. But like most drama recaps here Keya's don't seem to be overly popular or not as much as their member posts. That's okay though as long time readers may know I've been a huge J-drama fans over the years and this may be about the 440th or so recap done.

 Not going to reveal much of what's previously happened so it may be a good idea to skim through the other recaps. The last episode ended off with Yurina finding Tokuyama's hidden camera in the AC unit, the girls are set to watch it and perhaps find out who the killer was. There are five students out of 21 left as it's night and the rest have gone home.
 Just as the previous show ended the detective Yashino walked in the room and said he wanted to view the video with them. He did admonish them a bit for not notifying him, one reason for that is the video may show them hiding Tokuyama's dead body. The video starts out two days prior and Tokuyama is in the homeroom by himself. In though walks Neru who has been truant for a long time and is on the verge of getting expelled. Just as the pair were about to start a conversation the tape goes blank. It's still unknown if the disc held anything else as Yashino took the video with him.

 That scene ended off the third day of the mystery so now we're naturally on the fourth day. It's a hot day too and Tokuyama's body is starting to decay in the locker giving out such a reeking smell. It's now at the point where the students can no longer keep the body hidden away in a locker, these two episodes mainly deal with the Keya gals trying to bury the body.
 Just as they were making plans to do so to their surprise Neru walks into the classroom, most haven't seen her in months. To many of the students Neru has been the prime suspect in the stabbing of Tokuyama as it appears she wasn't too well liked but then again there are no other obvious suspects. Before they could start grilling her their art class began and the students had a special teacher from France who supposedly couldn't speak Japanese. He could though and kept that to himself for a while to learn some secrets about Tokuyama.

 The other girls don't know it but Neru had gone to the homeroom two nights before and had discovered Tokuyama in her locker. The temperature in the room is quite warm so the teacher from France leaves to get a fan. In his absence the girls start grilling Neru about her relationship, if there was one, with Tokuyama. She denied knowing anything and stated the pair of them weren't dating.
 Neru did reveal to them that Tokuyama had given her a disc to view though she hadn't a chance to see it yet. He had told Neru only to watch it if something happened to him and his being murdered would definitely be something. Of course this raised more suspicions from the gals so they once again hook up a player to view a disc. On it was Tokuyama taking a stroll in a park(?), gals were unsure where he was plus there was no sound. It seemed as though he was trying to tell them some message but the girls couldn't quite make out what the words were due to no sound.

 Right at that moment the art teacher comes back into the classroom. He sees them watching the video and takes the disc away from them. His name is Noel and he reveals to the students he knows Tokuyama and is worried about his disappearance which is why he volunteered to teach the class. That's when the girls learned he spoke Japanese, he had also kept that fact hidden from the assistant homeroom teacher Kanzaki.
 Noel saw her as he was leaving the classroom and her gave her the disc to give back to them. Kanzaki though kept it, we still know hardly anything about her but she is one suspicious person and a few of the students think so too. That art class seemed to take up most of the episode so it won't be until the next show until we learn if the students are going to be successful in finally getting rid of Tokuyama's body. However there was one brief scene before the show ended with....

.... Neru and Risa!!!! Kind of looks as though the pair may have some sort of private affair going on, it was witnessed by Nijiika who kept her mouth shut about it. Hmmmm, now some sort of scandalous affair like this would truly make this show a must watch and we'll learn more about it in the next show.
 The recap for that one is the next post which will be the halfway point of this series. To date would recommend watching this show, seems to be most dramas with Idols are much more intense you would think they would be.
