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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Nogizaka46: "Asahinagu" stage play promo event pics
Another busy stretch is coming up for Nogi but it's rare when the group isn't extremely busy. Their third album will be released on Wednesday, don't know if there's any event for it but usually there isn't. However there are a few promo tie-ins for the album and will have news on them over the weekend such as these pics here for 7-Eleven, they also had a new CM that came out today for them.
Still no news on a second group drama, Nogi seemingly does every activity imaginable these last two years but kind of shocked there was never another drama after 'Hatsumori Bemars".
Seems the members have appeared in so many stage plays over the last few years, especially Erika. On May 20th a group play will be opening up which is titled "Asahinagu" which is based on a manga. Tomorrow it opens at the EX Theater in Roppogni and will be there until the 31st. On June 2nd the play moves to Osaka until the fifth, then after that are three days in Aichi. Nanase isn't in the play but she will have the lead role of Asahi in the film version which comes out this Autumn.
For the stage play Asuka has the lead role of Asahi and as you can see there's seven other Nogi members in the play. Those seven are Hinako, Mai, Miona, Misa, Rina, Sayuri and Yumi. Think the other Mai is also in the play but she wasn't at this event.
On May 19th the entire cast had a brief showing of the play at the Roppogni Theater. It's an action packed play and hopefully the whole group is in shape. As you can see all of the members really got into it at the mini performance. Have plenty of pics here from the performance but couldn't find any video for it. But that's okay as there's a better one which I never posted that is of the two leads who are of course Asuka and Nanase. The video is from their recent Big Comic Spirits photo shoot and both dress up as the Asahi character.
