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.

Hinako Sakurai: Her intro post #2....

 Hinako's first post ever here was yesterday and it's been quite popular as only Nogi has had more views the last few days so thought why wait too long for her second post. Plus needed a break from the "Black" drama which has been a interesting yet confusing watch through two episodes. Those two shows are a 161 minutes in length, have never seen two episodes that have been so long. That means the recaps will also be marathons and may have the first two tomorrow.

 Yesterday mentioned that Hinako really resembles someone from Keya which she does. But more than anyone she reminds me of an AKB member who graduated in August 2015, especially in that police uniform. That ex-member's height is 152 cm while Hinako is 160 cm tall. She'll be turning 21 in less than six months but has only been active in show biz for a little over three years.
 That means there's not an awful lot of older things from Hinako but mainly started these posts for future activities as I have a feeling we'll be seeing quite a bit from her. So these posts won't have a huge amount of happenings from the last few years, even though I say that this post has close to fifty pics. Have two Weekly Ascii spreads, their sets almost always consist of five pics. That means we have a total of ten as Hinako graces the covers of the January 10th and December 27, 2016 issues.

 You can always get pics at the Weekly Ascii site as there's a different celeb every week and they also have an interview with the woman. Have one more mag spread as once again Hinako has the cover and this fine set is from the August 1, 2016 edition of Big Comic Spirits.

 Hinako has two photobooks already, her second one was just released last week. Her first one came out on October 28, 2016 and was titled "It Is Hinako Sakurai". On November 13th she held a fan shaking event for the book and also for her first calendar which was released on October 31st. Plenty of super duper Hinako pics from the event which was at the Fukuya Bookstore in Shinjuku, really like her overly kawaii looks. After the pics you can view a video of the hand shaking event and almost a year later none who shook her hand have washed their own....


  1. 😍She got the hat!!! 👌Good stuff right there. Now I'm 99% sure that the Keya girl is Neru but I don't know who the AKB member would be. I couldn't think of any girl as cute as Hinako (OHHH SNAP!!)

  2. Those pics as a traffic officer along with many others when she was younger really reminded me of Rina. However these days she could almost pass as the twin sister of Juri or at least to me....

  3. Ohhh Rina right right. Keep seeing her quite a bit on commercials, news on dramas and movies, seems like she's doing good. Hmm guess you're alone on the Juri resemblance
