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.

Satomi Ishihara: Some recent happenings....
Satomi is a name that hasn't been mentioned since February. There's a handful of actresses who tend to take 3-4 month breaks in a year and Satomi is one of them. She has worked hard for the last decade or more so guess she's entitled to take those long vacations.
No new dramas are scheduled for this year but Satomi usually does a series that airs in the Autumn so wouldn't be surprised if that's when her next show starts up. However she will be in a film that's opening up on July 1st titled "Shinobi no Kuni". On May 31st there was a screening of the movie which took place at the Tokyo Dome City Hall.
Will definitely have a post for the film's premiere along with more info about it. Satomi does appear in many mags but way too many of them are small as in 2-3 pages. Today have three new ones which are all fairly big totaling over thirty pics. Some really sharp pics here from the May edition of Maquia as she also had two covers.
Also has two covers for the May issue of With.
Final Satomi spread is another fabulous set of pics, once again has the cover for the August Biteki.
Every year NHK has a special '24 Hour TV' show which airs in the Summer. This year's will be airing on August 26th and 27th, on it they have a lot of actresses, celebs and Idols. The show's have a theme with this year's being 'Confessions/Honesty', the show is also a fundraiser for charities. On June 23rd Satomi was at a press conference for the special show as she was chosen to be one of the hosts. Think it's a nice honor being a host as many extremely big stars have done it over the years. No video is out yet for the event but do have plenty of fine Satomi pics from the event.
Though Satomi hasn't been too busy so far this year she's found time to do many CM's. Here's a short behind the scenes video for her latest Meiji CM.
