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.

Keyakizaka46: The 'Hiragana Keyaki post' #1!!!!

 Think this could be the first of many posts for Hiragana who have been getting a much bigger push lately from management. Actually it's just eleven who are getting a push as Neru is a member of Hiragana and Kanji, her popularity is already way up there.
 If you read the last two 'KeyaBingo!' recaps you noticed that they've had a much bigger presence on the show and had the second episode of season three all to themselves. They're in a battle with the Kanji members to see you can get more comments from their shows, would like to see them prevail but it'll be difficult topping Kanji.
 Though there's been many recent happenings there aren't many older pics so will try to stretch things out a bit but bet this post has over sixty pics. First set of pics features Kumi, Mana and Mei from a May 28th interview for the Real Sound site, they were promoting their first solo concerts.

Trio of 'M's'.... Mei, Mana and Mirei from the July edition of BLT.

 One more mag spread which is from March and issue #15 of Weekly Shonen, all of the members are represented but Neru stands out in that second pic.

 The Hiragana members have been doing so many features this year for the Hustle Press site, bet they've done more than the Kanji members. Some truly superb pics here from the group's glutton who is Mao, there was a joke in the last episode of 'Bingo' about how she needs to watch her weight and bet many would like to watch her weight! 😅

 Will get around to posting about all of the Hiragana members, they seem to be much more mature and interesting than most of Nogi's third generation members. Final set features Kumi who had better work on her stamina and these are more from the Hustle Press site.


  1. M&M's XD They're showcasing a lot of colours so, it works. That last pic from the Weekly Shonen tho. So white it looks like they're in front of a green screen and everybody's wearin green. I need to work on my stamina too. Kumi is too hot she's overheating my laptop. She's making me work harder to cool this thing down

  2. Kumi has a few more Hustle Press spreads which may be even better. Will get to a few more different members and perhaps it'll be tomorrow, Kyoko is someone who I think is kind of cool even though her mates think she's such an airhead. With five members having their name beginning with 'M' maybe that'd make for an interesting subgroup. Don't know why Nogi hasn't done that with all of the Ito's and Saito's in the group.

  3. that'll be pretty sweet if they do, i would certainly love to see something like that
