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: 2017 Magazine scans #44

 Hinako turns 21 today and for so long she's been one of my top five members. Really had wanted to do a post for her but have been saying that for months now, she's kind of disappeared entirely. No recent mag spreads, at one time she may have been Nogi's best blogger but hardly does entries these days. Wondering what's going on with her as she had become such a popular member, she has been appearing on their variety shows but she's not as talkative or funny as she once was.

 After being a Senbatsu member for the last three singles Hinako is once again an Undergirl, she's bounced around between those two positions too often. Heard she hurt her leg on the set of the "Asahinagu" film but that still doesn't explain her long disappearing act.
 On to some mag spreads and with the "Nigemizu" single coming out in three weeks sure we'll be seeing such a slew of them in the next month. Smallish set to start off with from the July issue of ar, we really need to see Kazumi and Miona together more often.

 More Miona along with Asuka and Mai from the August edition of Brody, it was from when the trio were in Thailand filming their 'Amazing Thailand' campaign.

 Hope no one gets tired of looking at Miona as I certainly don't, here she is with Misa from the August issue of Entame. Rumor has it that Miona may have her first photobook this Autumn, let's hope so as after those massive selling books from earlier this year there are no other ones scheduled.

 Mai Shiraishi is no doubt the most popular member though I don't think she has that much on Mai Shinuchi who also looks so superb. She finished in my top ten on last year's 'Fave Nogi Member' list and would expect her to do so again this year, maybe I'll start on this year's list next month. This could be her top spread to date and it's from the August edition of EX-Taishu. After her dazzling pics are three for the third generation members along with Asuka.

 Bit of a slowdown recently for Mai mag spreads, guess that means there will be too many upcoming ones to count. This set is from volume 29 of Larme.


  1. ohhh that's right SHINUCHI!! oh ma ga-(ノ°Д°)ノ︵ ┻━┻ PB for Shinuchi! We need it NAO!(NOW!?) haha works both ways

  2. I agree that Mai deserves a PB, sadly for us fans the odds are probably a million to one of that happening. It's easily forgotten, I have done it many times, but even though Mai is the oldest member she's also a second generation member and so far none have had photobooks.
