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.

Keyakizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #9 and more....
Those are from last year's 'Idol Fest' which took place on August 14th. Haven't heard if Keya will be doing any upcoming concerts but you would think they would as their first album is coming out in less than ten days. Few days ago was viewing their first 'One Man Live Show' which was aired on December 25th. The gals too put on an entertaining show, kind of wish they would perform more.
On the new album the Aozora to Marry subgroup will be having a new song which is titled "Koko ni Nai Ashiato". The fivesome has had a few other B-side songs, their "Wareta Smartphone" tune on the last single is perhaps my fave J-Pop song for this year so far and to me it's Keya's best song. This is a promo pic for the new song, this quintuple could perform for me at any time....
As you may know Nogi announced the centers for their upcoming single, it's a double center once again but with two new third generation members. With Keya's new album coming out soon we probably won't see a new single until September but the album does have sixteen new songs. Would like to see Keya do something different on their next single, perhaps also having two centers and there's no doubt W-Watanabe would be the perfect choice.
Will have some more solo posts coming up soon, think the first one will be for Akane who has really been standing out to me lately. She has a new mag spread for Young Gangan and she also graces the cover, Manaka is also someone who deserves a few more solo posts.
Before the mag spreads have some blog pics from July 6th. On that date Keya's Undergirls who are named 'Hiragana Keyaki' performed a concert at Zepp in Nagoya. They've been doing some concerts here and there the last few months, they'll have plenty of new songs on the album.
On to the mag spreads, just three for today but have posted so many of them recently. First off is a pair who looks superb together who are Shiori and Yui from Young Gangan #14.
It's still going to be a while until Yurina's first solo post, waiting for her age to start creeping up there. However have been posting some of her solo mag spreads in these group posts, she appears in so many that it'd be a shame to ignore them. This set is from Weekly Shonen #32.
Last are these pics from the August edition of Brody as ten members each had one page. No idea if they all play those instruments but they may, Keya seems to have many musicians in the group or at least many more than most J-Pop groups.
