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...Rena Takeda... Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... Nanase Nishino!.... 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.
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.
The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films.
June 11th.... the new blog is going well but it is much more work so unsure if I want to keep two going. For now will but am going to bring some of those actress posts over here as I know many have missed out on some faves. Actually just may end up transferring all of them over as I'm seriously leaning to going back to one blog, tried having others at one in the past which also proved to take up a lot more time than I expected.

Marie Iitoyo: Two October events....
May sound a bit odd but think the reason there aren't more posts for various Marie activities is because she's too busy! Can't recall ever saying anything like that before but in Marie's case think it's true but there's really nothing wrong with being ultra busy.
For 2017 she's appeared in two films, one TV movie and seven dramas, being in so many things doesn't give you that much time to appear in many mags or at other events. So far five of those dramas have been completed, one is still on going and the seventh will be starting next month. The real shame is that of the six finished or airing only one has been subbed and her next one will also fall into the unsubbed category, not good news if you're a fan of Marie.
On to two press conferences for a pair of upcoming projects which has been her only news this month, Marie's blog/Twitter entries have been almost nonexistent. Marie will be in the TV movie "Blue Birds Nante" which will be airing October 22nd on Fuji-TV. It's the fourth in a series of 'Drama Koshien' movies, that's a country wide talent search for new directors or writers who are still in high school. The person who won this year's contest which was the fourth time it's been awarded was Yuriko Kuribayashi who is the short female in the bottom pics, this event took place on October 5th.
Marie plays a high school student in the above TV movie but she'll be playing a detective for the first time in the upcoming drama "Stone Tsububu- Men in the Investigation". The series will be starting November 5th on WOWOW and it's the second season for the show.
On October 16th Marie was appointed as 'Chief for the day' at the Marunochi police station in Tokyo. She also did a little bit of promoting for the new drama plus it was also the start of a new campaign to battle violence against women. After these fine pics of the best looking chief in Tokyo check out an arresting video of the event.
