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: 'Girls Awards' show #2, pics/videos with Asuka and Nanase
Nogi also performed a few songs at the 2017 'Girls Awards' Spring/Summer show. Think at every fashion show they've always sung 'Girls Rule" which they did again at this show, that really is one of their best singles. They also performed "Influencer" and "Hadashi de Summer", that second is another tune which will soon become a staple for all Spring/Summer fashion shows.
May do another post for this event as there's plenty of Mai pics that weren't posted plus group ones from them performing, will wait a day or two to see if the group videos stay on YT. The event was held at the Yoyogi Stadium Gymnasium on May 3rd, there were a total of over 30,000 fans in attendance plus 140 models which means many didn't have much time on the catwalk.
Mai's post from the show is three below this one, she was one person who was able to spend quite a long time on the catwalk. But most Nogi members did too such as Asuka, her popularity these days seems to be going through the roof. Will have all the stats tomorrow but a few weeks ago her first photobook passed 100,000 in sales which is quite an achievement.
Nanase's popularity is already sky high, that's her above in the short video from the event. Her last PB which came out last September has also sold like hotcakes as the total is well over 125,000 copies sold. She'll be turning 23 on May 25, one day before that the group's third album will be released. Here's plenty of pics of the duo, Nanase was representing the Non-no mag. Asuka was there for Sweet but there hasn't been a mag she hasn't appeared in the last few months and there's also a short video of her below. Misa didn't take a stroll on the catwalk as she's not an exclusive model for any magazine, hope that changes soon.
