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.

Satomi Ishihara: Some recent happenings....

 These last few days there's been virtually nothing new to post about, that is except for some terrific news about Satomi. On September 1st she'll be releasing a photobook, title for it is "Encourage" and she's someone who I would have never thought about having a PB these days. However really glad to see one coming out as she's been a huge fave of mine for about a decade, one of the first dramas I ever saw was "H2" and have seen just about every series that she's been in. Those two fabulous pics above are promo ones for the book and here's two more.

 Wow, Satomi truly looks stupendous in those pics. her last post had this August calendar but in case you missed it here it is again.

 Three recent mag spreads and bet with Satomi's PB coming out she'll soon be appearing in many of them. Way too small set from the July edition of Easy.

 Another too small set of pics from the July issue of More.

 Saved the best spread for last and it's also the biggest one. Satomi appears in many Biteki mags and here she is looking rather dazzling in their August issue.

 Few 'Find My Tokyo' Satomi promo pics for 2017 that I think have been missed.

 Satomi's latest film came out on July 1st and was titled "Shinobi no Kuni" and it did respectable at the box office. These are some pics from an interview she did for Asahi.

 The film had it's premiere on July 1st at the Toho Cinemas in Roppogni Hills. Did post a few pics from the event but these are some that weren't(hopefully) in that post. No new CM's for a while so have a Satomi one from May for Meiji after the pics.


  1. Watched a few of her stuff, real nice. I liked Rich man, poor woman. Gakky is so far my fave actress. 2 other actresses have caught my eye tho(coz they cute) Yuina Kuroshima & Kyoko Yoshine

  2. Have seen neither in anything though do know of them, Yuina looks quite a bit like Mayu Matsuoka who could be my current fave actress. Almost did a post recently for Kyoko who seems like a busy gal, have been debating on whether to watch her last drama "Chiisana Kyojin" which looks very interesting.
    So far just one episode of 'Code Blue 3" has been subbed but will be doing some posts for it once a few more shows are done. Satomi's "Incite Mill" film was really one A+ watch.
