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!
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: "Umaretekara Hajimete Mita Yume" CD pics part one
Big decrease lately for Nogi posts and it's not that I don't want to do them but there's been so little happenings recently with the group with is very rare. Not that they're not busy but usually Nogi has been the busiest J-Pop group around for the last 3-4 years, with the new single coming out in two weeks thought we'd be seeing too much of them. Doesn't seem to be as big of a buzz for the "Nigemizu" single as other ones, think a few fans may be disappointed with the Senabtsu lineup plus the new song isn't among their better ones.
Have posted five member's pics from the CD but they were just thrown in here and there and five out of 46 members is just a drop in the bucket. So will have three posts for all of the pics, there's three each for the members. No order to the posts as the Senbatsus and Undergirls will be mixed together but will have a separate post for the third generation members.
This is Nogi's third album which was released exactly two months ago. It naturally ranked #1 on the charts in it's first week out selling 342,400 copies. Sales remained steady for a while but have dropped off which is to be expected. Sales for week eight were 1,936 which brings the total to 399,900 copies sold, no doubt they've gone over 400 K.
Enough blabbering, two more posts with album pics will be coming up but let's hope there's some posts first for new happenings. Have a total of sixteen members for today and they're in blocks of four. First quartet features the perfect Misa followed by Himeka, Erika and Nanase.... this foursome could be the best group out of all of the pics, whew....
Have taken the subway before though there are none where I'm from, never recall female passengers looking like Nogi members do!!!! Second foursome consists of Asuka, Miona, Manatsu and Sayuri.
Hinako leads off this set and has she ever disappeared. Seemed in the second half of 2016 her popularity was rising faster than any other member and then all of a sudden we rarely see anything from her these days. She's looks much more vampy than usual in these pics but you can say that about most of the members in these sets. Other three joining her are Mai whose pics may be the best of any member, there's also Reika and Chiharu.
Kotoko is an Undergirl who I've really liked over the years, her main problem is that she's way too shy and quiet but when she does have the spotlight she's such an interesting person. Actually being shy and quiet is the problem for a few other Undergirls too, perhaps that's why they've remained an UG for so long. Following her is another UG who is Ranze, actually she just got demoted after being a Senbatu member for one single. Final two gals for this post and Minami and Yumi.
