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.

Keyakizaka46: "Tokuyama Daigoro wo Dare ga Koroshita ka?" drama episode six recap

 Air Dates: July 16 to October 1, 2016 on TV Tokyo, Saturdays at 12:20 am
 Theme song: "Sekai ni wa Ai Shika Nai" by Keyakizaka46


 The whole group is in the show and go by their first names, here's some of the members who have had or think will have the most important roles.

Yurina Hirate
Rika Watanabe
Yuuka Sugai
Nanako Nagasawa
Shiori Sato
Rika Ozeki
Yui Imaizumi
Neru Nagahamam


Kyusaku Shimada as Tokuyama, their dead homeroom teacher
Noriko Eguchi as Kanzaki, asst. homeroom teacher
Ryo Iwamatsu as the Principal
Hiroki Konno as the janitor Hashibe
Kazuyuki Aijima as teacher Takemura

 Ended off the last recap saying we'd learn more about a possible relationship between Neru and Risa who to me is the most attractive member in the show. We actually don't know if there really is anything going on with the pair though at first with Neru's comment below we thought there was.

 There definitely is some secret relationship with the pair, it kept getting hinted at but so far we don't know what it could be.... yet. That see you tonight comment refers to what Risa says after that, it's finally time to bury the dead body of Tokuyama. It's now the night of day four of this murder/mystery and the body is really starting to reek though no teachers have mentioned that fact yet.
 The Keya girls have all assembled int he classroom, think the time is a bit after 8:00 pm. In case they get discovered their excuse is that they're all in the Constellation club and met up late at night to observe the stars from the school's roof. They needed the excuse as with Tokuyama's body in plain view a security guard walks in. They quickly convince him that they're waiting for their teacher, for some reason he believed them without noticing the body and left the classroom.

 Just then Neru appears as she was late but did think enough to bring a shovel which no other gal did, after all they have to bury the body. This is when Nijiika confronts Neru about her relationship with Risa, she's kept quiet about it but is very suspicious of the pair who don't like her at all. Nijiika though keeps mum about it and it doesn't appear she thinks the duo had a part in the murder.
 This is when the episode gets a tad strange and even a bit confusing for a few minutes. There are just four students currently in the classroom as the rest have gone to the roof pretending to view stars. Out of nowhere a mysterious man enters the room demanding to know where Tokuyama is. His dead body was actually still in the room and was hidden in the small nook in the room where the gals had left him until the time of his burial.

 We never learn the man's name but he screams at the four girls to get out of the room, they were about to when Yurina enters the room. Yurina is the youngest member but will say it again that she's the coolest under pressure in this series, she manages to calm the guy down and pry some info out of him. Seems this man knows Tokuyama from the adult clubs he frequents and would like to give him some money if he can view his list.
 The list could prove to be an important clue to the solution of Tokuyama's murder but the girls know nothing of it. Yurina had kept some of Tokuyama's personal items such as a train ticket and a novel, the man looked at them but was unable to find the list. Just then the security guard returns to the classroom and everyone ducks for cover, the girls in their lockers and the man in the nook where Tokuyama's dead body is.

 The guard really isn't a guard and discovers where the man is hiding, just in time too as that mysterious man was about to discover Tokuyama's body. The guard is also looking for the list, when he finds out the man doesn't have it he pummels him and drags him out of the classroom. The five girls hidden in the locker have observed all of it but of course they can't go to the police.
 The school is finally cleared and the remaining students come back from the roof. Now it's the time for Tokuyama's body to be buried and unlike all of the other occasions this time they're successful. In the final scene it's now the following morning and the girls are so exuberant about the body finally being buried. Yurina was curious about the guard and asked about him, the school's janitor told her that there is no night guard at the school. This really perked up her curiosity, she took another look at Tokuyama's novel and to her amazement she found some sort of list.

 We'll know more about Yurina's discovery in the next episode as her finding the list only lasted for a few seconds. The list appears to be of names with yen amounts next to them, to her surprise she found the name of Yuuka on the list, she's the class representative! Think the list may have to do with call girls or something along those lines, positive we'll learn much more about the list in the upcoming shows as it could be a key to discovering the killer.
 There are some lighthearted moments in the shows, they mainly were about all of the attempts the girls made in burying and hiding Tokuyama's body. But for the most part it's been a very serious drama and could take a turn to be a darker one with the discovery of the list. The show did end on one unexpected cliffhanger, won't discuss that now as who knows what it could be about. Will have the details on that and everything else that happens in the next two shows this weekend when the next pair of recaps should be done.
