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 #36
'Umarete' easily topped last week's Oricon charts selling over 342,000 copies. That topped the sales of the second album by 68,000 copies, every single release for the last two years has set a group record. There's still been no info on Hinako's first photobook, in March the news came out that it was going to be released in June. But since then there's been zero news on it and I was looking forward to the PB, wonder if it got pushed back to coincide with her 21st birthday which is in July.
Also been a mysterious lack of blog entries from her though she did one Sunday after four weeks without one though no mention of the book. No mag spreads for Hinako today either, all of them for this post are group sets with the first spread to lead us off from the June 1st edition of Tokyo Walker Plus. Been seeing quite a bit of mag spreads featuring Manatsu this last month, good to finally see Kazumi in a spread and she's really looking A+.
Next up are three spreads from the July issue of Entame. First set of six pics features Kotoko along with Ranze who is another member who has been appearing in so many mags recently. After them with three pics are the group's captain Reika and she's joined by the third generation member Minami who at 170 cm is now Nogi's tallest member. Ending off the Entame pics are the Undergirl trio of Rena, Miria and Ayane with three pics.
Saved the best spread for last which is from the July edition of BLT. Misa these days is just looking too good to believe and her pics in this set, though conservative, are out of this world. But then again Miona has been looking rather captivating more so than ever lately, really would like to see a PB from her. The pair is joined by the third generation member Yuuki and of all of the new members she's probably appeared in the second most mag spreads.
