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: 'Baitoru' promo event pics and new CM
Those are two of the four covers for Nogi's third album "Umarete Kara Hajimete Mita Yume" which will be released on May 24th. Will have the other two in the group's next post which should be very soon as May is shaping up to be one of the group's busiest months, think the only thing that won't be happening is a new photobook. Six members have had one so far this year and Hinako is next on the list to have one which is coming out in June.
I prefer doing posts like this one versus just regular mag spreads posts, enjoy seeing the gals in a real setting and this is the third event like this in the last two weeks. Baitoru is a temp agency in Japan for part time jobs, it's supposedly a place where you can pick up a job very quickly if you need some fast cash. For the last few weeks Nogi has done some videos for the company, haven't posted them yet but they are on YT.
In the next week there are going to be many more CM's coming out for the company featuring six members, not just the three who attended today's event. Two of them just came out yesterday and you can view one at the bottom of the post, here are a few screenshots from them.
On May 2nd three members attended a promo event for the new CM's at the Garden Room in Ebisu, Shibuya. In attendance at the event was Mai who proves she doesn't need to dress skimpy to be counted as among the most beautiful women in the world. Also there was best friend in the group Sayuri who was so quiet for a long stretch but now has been at two events in less than a week.
My fave of the trio is Kazumi who is really looking better than ever, thought her PB which came out last September was the second best Nogi photobook to date. Kazumi was also at an event last week promoting a new DVD release. Have an over abundance of pics from the event but is it possible to ever have too many pics for Nogi? The answer is no and following them is one of the new CM's and will have the other new one in their next post, as usual no video of a Nogi event. The group's current smash single "Influencer" has been the theme song for the videos.
