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: "Zankoku na Kankyakutachi" drama news
Hope to have the recaps of episodes three and four later on for group's first drama 'Tokuyama'. The first two shows were quite good which is a dark mystery surrounding the murder of the girls homeroom teacher.
That show ran in the Summer of 2016 while this series just started two days ago on NTV. Think every Idol drama has to air late at night and this one is no different as the start time for it is 1:00 am. This show promises to be another interesting drama as it's set in the near future, the members are once again at a high school. What looks to be very good is the plot as they're trapped in their classroom and the only way to leave is to get enough likes from viewers watching via an outside feed.
Won't go into too much detail as I haven't started to watch it yet but do have the first episode. So far it hasn't been subbed but a team is picking it up so it will be soon. However may finish watching the 'Tokuyama' series first and then start on this one, will end up recapping the entire drama. In the older drama all of the members used their regular names in the show but in this one they have different names.
Few examples are Yurina's name will be Yuzuki, once again she has the lead in the series and really has had the center or lead positions for everything Keya has done. Couple other character names are Rika as Anna, Shiori as Shizuka and Neru as Miko.
Those are some pics from the NTV site which also has a brief recap of the first show and what to expect in the next episode. On April 19th the group held a press conference for the show, all twenty one members are in the drama but Risa was the only one not at the event. The show also airs on HULU, think their version may be a tad different.
The title can translate over to 'Cruel Audience', likes can get you out of the classroom but wonder what's going to happen to the ones that aren't allowed to leave the room? Have plenty of pics here from the press conference followed by a promo video that aired on the ZIP! show, there's quite a few other short videos for the show on YT.
