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 'Miona Hori' post #3....
Doesn't happen often but now and again there's extremely slow periods where there's close to zero to post about and the last 3-4 days have been like that. This post doesn't consist of all new things either but perhaps 80% of these pics are brand new for here. Also didn't want to go three days without posting and have everyone start to forget about this place.
That's one of the covers for the "Baretta" single, it was Miona's first song with the group and she was the center for the tune which definitely shocked many fans. She was quite popular back in 2013 when she joined Nogi but that popularity quickly waned though she's back even more popular than ever. Miona was also demoted to an Undergirl for two singles but is now back as a Senbatsu member and think she's there to stay as she was in the front line for the last single.
However don't see her centering a single anytime soon, unless you're going to graduate it's hard to bump Asuka, Mai or Nanase from that position. On to some terrific Miona pics, I've been trying to pump her up so much this year as she's entered my top five for fave members. Unsure if she's that popular around here yet but with more solo posts maybe she will be soon.
Two mag spreads with the first one being new for here. Another fave member of mine who is sadly overlooked too often is Mai Shinuchi, she finished in the top ten for my fave members last year. The duo share this too small of a spread from the May issue of Songs Net.
Already posted this spread but there were no other new ones and didn't want to just have one. This set is so fabulous it deserved an encore as these A++++ Miona pics are from the April 6th edition of Weekly Shonen Champion.
On April 16th Miona was joined by Hinako and Kana promoting the "Influencer" single for the Modelpress site.
Hinako has her first photobook coming out in June, wouldn't surprise me if Miona will have one coming out shortly after that. To me the pair are the closest of Nogi members and will do a 'pairs post' soon for the duo. Miona is joined by her in these first blog pics which were from last Wednesday's 'Girls Awards' show. Miona is one of the best at updating their blogs, I would rank her second behind Chiharu and all of these pics are from the last week.
Miona's mag spreads are of course stupendous but prefer her live at events such as at last week's 'Girls Awards' show. Probably in the minority with my thought but to me Miona looks the best of any member at these shows, first few pics were already posted but most are new.
If you're a fan of Nogi cards you're going to love these 2017 ones with Miona as there are quite a few of them, all are new except for the "Influencer" single cards. There's a grand total of 44(!) of them, the ones that say 20th Anniversary were for her 'coming of age' ceremony that took place in January.
Six Nogi members have been doing a sereis of CM's for Baitoru which is a Japanese temp agency, the group has done other promo work for the company in the past. A new video comes out every week titled 'My First' Baito', in week four Miona had the honors and you can view the interesting two minute video after a few pics from it.
