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!
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.

Nogizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #32
Gulp, think I'll give myself rather easily, hope Misa doesn't put the cuffs too tight again! 😏
Sigh, don't you hate when you wake up from a dream at the best moment, Misa seems to be entering my dreams(and yours?) quite often lately. Would think right now she has the inside track on being #1 on my next Nogi 'Top Ten Fave Members' list. Last year did it in September and October, will try to do it in the Summer this time.
Of course last year Nanami took the top spot, hate to admit it but seems as though Nogi hasn't missed a beat since she left and are no doubt more popular than ever. What's really been amazing is the sales of their 2017 photobooks, all of the releases have hit the top spot on the Oricon charts. Last week Misa had that honor as her first PB as a member sold over 50,000 copies, the sales figures come out on Thursday so will let you know how the member's books did then, Shame this is such a small spread but Misa leads us off with this fabulous set from the May 23rd issue of Flash.
Flash has many 'best of issues that come out during the year. At the end of February they had an early Spring edition called 'Special Gravure Best'. Now another issue has been released, same title but now it's also called late Spring so that means we may see two for the Summer, if it features Nogi members that's okay by us then. Reika's first photobook came out on March 8th, it's dropped out of the top ten but has sold close to 40,000 copies. That may not seem like a lot compared to Mai but very few Idols come close to that mark. These pics are outtakes from the PB and it's the first of three Nogi members who were featured in the special Flash issue.
Second set of Flash pics are with Minami, it's her third solo spread in the last two weeks.
Last Flash spread is with Ranze, even when she was an Undergirl she had quite a few solo spreads. She's a Senbatsu member now and would think she'll remain one for as long as she's in Nogi.
We don't see enough of Erika these days or at least doing Nogi activities as she's so busy with her stage plays. Her next one begins on May 25th which is the day after the group's third album comes out, this small set from the June Nikkei Entertainment is for the "Les Miserables" play.
Miria has been an Undergirl since she joined the group back in 2013, to me she may(should) be the next member who gets promoted. Fine spread here from issue #254 of UTB.
