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 #46

 With Nogi's 18th single coming out in ten days there's going to be too many upcoming mag spreads to count and there have been quite a few this past week. However none of them have featured Erika which is such a shame as to me no Nogi member's looks have improved as much as hers has since they started. Then again she was just fifteen at the time and she'll be turning 21 in January, perhaps she doesn't have much time for photo shoots due to her appearing in the 'Les Miserables' play.
 Another gal we haven't seen a trace of lately is Hinako and she herself just turned 21 two weeks ago. Seemed like at the start of the year she was going to be Nogi's big breakthrough member and for some unknown reason she's fallen completely off the radar.

 As you all know Nogi's new single "Nigemizu" will be centered by two third generation members who are Momoko and Yuuki. The pair have today's first spread which is from the September edition of Samurai ELO.

 More Momoko and it's a solo set from the September issue of Bubka. She seems like an okay gal but she really needs to work on her stage presence as she'll be doing many upcoming TV shows and her nervousness is sometimes extremely difficult to watch.

 Even more third generation members as a foursome are featured in issue #32 of WPB, their names are on the second pic.

 Asuka has probably appeared in more spreads than any Nogi member this past year though she hasn't been in too many recent ones. She has the final set today which is from the August 10th issue of Weekly Shonen, that date is also when Asuka will be turning 19.


  1. HATS!! BLOODY HATS! WHYYYY AREN'T THEY WEARIN 'EM!? Momoko wore it for the Nigemizu video and Asuka is...kinda wearin it. Ya got a hat, but ya ain't wearin it like c'mon noww.
    The 4th pic from Samurai Elo is horrendous coz seriously...WHAT ARE THOOOSE!? like c'mon, those shoes look terrible. A bloody sin

  2. Scrolling down did notice that fourth pic, definitely one of her sexiest pics ever. Nogi doesn't seem to be a 'Hat Group', recall Hinako wearing one at a fashion show but besides that can't think of any other occasions where they've worn them.
