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...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... 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.

Minami Sengoku: Happy 26th birthday!!!!



 Minami is one of my all time fave Idols but you may not realize that with the lack of posts she's had here as this is only her seventh one. Should be another one for her very soon as there are a lot of upcoming activities as her group Up Up Girls has a single coming out on May 9th, more info on that at the bottom. Hope to have her spread for Young Magazine for that post too, Minami will be in a future issue though she didn't say which one. These are some dazzling pics from the photo shoot.




 Minami's 26th b-day took place yesterday, my mind is really on the fritz as I almost forgot about it. Her best friend Yuu celebrates her 25th today, didn't forget that one though and hopefully can do a post for her very soon.



 Not a huge amount of recent happenings but as mentioned there should be some very soon. There are a few though and one is that Minami is doing movie reviews for a site called Girls Flash with her feature titled 'Minami's Cinema Note'. Every other week she'll be doing a film review, here are some pics from her first one which was for the "Ikari" movie. This is the site address and you'll see her second review on the right hand side: girlsf.jp/life/cinema/19038









 Not a huge amount of blog or Twitter pics but Minami sure looks terrific in them.












 Though this is just Minami's first post of the year she is a huge fave of mine. For last year's top twenty list she finished in the third position and really just missed being #1. Would love it if she could take that top spot and with breathtaking pics like these it's easy to see why she's ranked so high.








 Up Up Girls will be celebrating their sixth anniversary this June, Minami is the captain of the group and has been with them since day one. They're just so-so popular though their "Party People Alien" single from April 2016 did reach #5 on the charts. But they are a popular H!P affiliated group as they appear on so many of their music shows, seems at least once a week.
 On May 9th the group's 22nd single "Upper Disco/Forever Young" will be released. Should be an event for that as H!P groups usually have a mini concert to promote their new singles. Here are two of the covers followed by a live version of "Forever Young".
