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... Erina Mano... 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: The 'Mai Shiraishi' post #19

 Perhaps I haven't titled all of them correctly but it seems Mai has many more than 19 solo posts. She's on the verge of becoming #1 here very soon for total posts, kind of hard concentrating on what to say staring at that bottom pic, whewwwwwww.........
 Not sure if this will be a huge post but had a sixteen page spread which all Mai fans will definitely want to view, then again often say a post won't be too big and it ends up having 50+ pics. Mai's "Passport" just keeps on selling, the total sold is a little above 198,000 copies. She should hit the 200 K mark easily next week, that PB could be the biggest selling one of all time.

 Mai has been a co-host of the 'Umazu Kingdom' show for close to four years now, it changed it's name a year ago but is the same show which is about horse racing. It airs on Saturdays but Mai couldn't appear on today's show, think she may be in the group's new stage play though she wasn't at yesterday's event for it. She did send in a short video telling everyone she'll be back next week and that thirty second video is on YT.

 Have some group cards, the ones for April were posted but don't think the ones for May were.

 Last Mai post was for appearance at the May 3rd 'Girls Awards' show. Hadn't posted these concert pics nor the ones that were taken backstage after the show.

 At the show Mai was representing the Ray magazine, she's been an exclusive model for them since 2013. Have kept up to date with her spreads but every month she also has a special fashion entry at the mag's site, first eight pics are from April while the rest are for May.

 Would post some Mai blog pics but she may be the worst Nogi member at updating it as she's done two(!) posts this whole year. Guess we can forgive Mai as she looks tremendous in this spread which was the main reason for the post, this fabulous set of pics are from the May issue of BLT.

 Nogi has a new campaign for 7-Eleven which just started two days ago, will have some more info on that with a video or two tomorrow. The group also has a new one with Haruyama suits, this video is a behind the scenes one. Mai is in about the first minute followed by a few other members.
