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...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... 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!
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 Summer Tour concert pics and cards
Nogi wrapped up the first two concerts of their 2017 Summer tour yesterday at the Meiji Jungu Stadium in Tokyo. Bit of a break coming up though as the tour isn't starting again until August 11th when they'll be doing 14 more concerts throughout Japan. At yesterday's show there was no news about their 18th single which will be coming out on August 9th, the Senbatsu lineup will be announced on next Sunday's 'Under Construction' show. The center position is a nice honor but with 20+ Senabtasu members it's not as important as being the center of a smaller group, be nice to see someone different get that position though.
At Sunday's concert Nogi also announced they'll be playing two shows in November at the Tokyo Dome, that arena holds 60 thousand or more for concerts. Fans think at one of the shows we may see a graduation announcement which may not surprise me but hope it doesn't happen. Erika would be at the top of my list as she's so in demand for doing musicals and she may not need the group as much these days. Then again Mai could be the one as she'll be turning 25 next month which is the age when most Idols feel it's getting time to move on, actually hope both stay and sure most of you agree.
Nogi concerts are quite an entertaining event, at these two shows all of the groups performed. First off the new third generation members had their turn in the spotlight and did many older hits. Up next was the Undergirls, they've had so many tunes on the singles they can just sing their own songs. Will have more info on it soon but think they'll be performing some concerts at the end of the month.
Finally the Senbatsu members perform, years ago they would lead off and the Undergirls would take the stage for a few songs here and there to give them a breather. All in all forty songs are performed including the encore, noticed on the set list they don't do "Sayonara no Imi" these days for obvious reasons. Both shows sold out, the stadium holds 40,000 for a concert and bet Nogi's management is still counting the money as the group has really become such a yen making machine.
While back posted these Nogi cards for their Summer tour but in case you missed that post here's an encore of them.
