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: A little of this and that for 2017 #22....
Single #17 "Influencer" has finally cracked the million mark in sales. Last week it was in the twelfth position on the Oricon charts selling 3,413 copies to bring the grand total to 1,001,000 sold. It's Nogi's first official million seller and every single for the last few years keeps setting a new group record for sales. Still no news on when the next single will be coming out, the last five years there's been one that's been released in July but doesn't appear as though it'll be six years in a row.
At the top is a new Mouse CM that came out on Monday, have another one at the bottom of the post. Nogi usually announces in concert when their next single will be coming out, the group's next two shows are at the Meiji Stadium on July 1st and 2nd so odds are good that's when we'll learn about it. Monday's post was for seven members doing a new campaign titled 'Amazing Thailand' and the press conference they attended. There were two videos in that post and here's many more promo pics for the campaign.
Just had another thought about the new single which is that I hope they don't wait until September to release it. That's the month the group's first film is coming out which is titled "Asahinagu", twelve Nogi members will be in the movie. Was thinking that perhaps there would be some tie-in with the movie and single, still could happen if the next single came out in August though. Nanase has the lead role in the film and also today's only spread which is from volume 011 of Overture.
Miona has a new interview with the Real Sound site where she talked about the third album and the third generation members. Here's the address for the site: https://realsound.jp/06/post-84071.html
Maquia Online has a short feature that came out three days ago with Misa where she shared some makeup tips.
First time the five Nogi members had Mouse CM's there were a total of twenty that were released. So far there's been three new ones but for the next month expect to see a few new ones every week, here's one other one that came out on Monday.
