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... Yuko Oshima... 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.

Mei Nagano: Some recent happenings....
Mei is the youngest gal I post about but thought we'd be a little ahead of the game for a change as I think for the next decade or so we'll be hearing so much about her. Kind of like her style and enthusiasm plus it's nice seeing a young actress not having to do gravure spreads to move ahead, actually been seeing more actresses not doing them lately which is a good thing.
No doubt we've helped her career out quite a bit already as Mei will have the starring role in next Spring's asadora "Hanbun". Did a post about the show back in June as it's quite an honor having the lead role in those dramas which are immensely popular. Series doesn't start until next April so we'll be hearing much more about it in the future.
Mei is currently starring in the "Fugitive Boys" drama which began on July 18th and is a prime time show. Some pics from an event they had for the show on July 13th plus a few from a Modelpress interview promoting the drama.
Mei also has a big role in the "Mix" movie that's coming out in October and looks to be a film that's going to be a hit. Since last October Mei has been a host of the 'Girls Locks!' radio show, she hosts the last week of every month. Pics here are from June.
The show has always had four hosts but that hasn't been the case for the last few months as there's only been two of them, lot of guest hosts fill in the first two weeks of a month. Here's some Mei pics from the last week of July and you can get more of them at the show's site.
Mei doesn't appear in nearly as many mags as she deserves but that'll be changing as her popularity keeps rising plus she is getting a bit older. She wasn't in the August issue of BLT but these are some new pics from the mag's site as she did an interview for them.
This is a huge set of pics, not exactly a regular mag spread but from 'Hikarigraph' which is an web magazine. Following the twenty pics is a CM that came out in March for Samantha Vega, Mei does do many CM's and most have been for Calpis.
