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... Miyu Kitamuki... 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.

Few tidbits....
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. That means you won't find those types of posts here any more which means you'll have to go there for posts featuring Erika Toda, Mio Imada, Tsubasa Honda, Park Min-Young and many others.

Nogizaka46: Reika Sakurai "Jiyu to Iukoto" photobook scans


 Reika's first and unfortunately probably only photobook has the title of "Jiyu to Iukoto" which of course you saw above. Reason for thinking it may be her only one is that there's still many members who haven't had a PB yet plus the gals whose books were huge sellers will no doubt have a second or third PB coming out.
 Think the PB sales increased too quickly, this photobook has sold between 45-50,000 copies which is an extremely high total. A year or longer ago all Nogi fans would have been raving at that sales total but of the five books released this year it's sold the fewest. Had it come out a year ago it would have been the fourth best seller out of the member's first ten books, actually can't recall any other J-Pop Idol whose PB sales topped Reika's this year.

 That's okay though if Reika never has another book, she did have this one which has some mighty fine pics and it was a solid seller in most fan's eyes. The pics for the book were shot in Malaysia on the islands of Ipoh and Langkawi. Many fans think she looks like she could come from Malaysia or even Thailand and I agree with those thoughts, don't think either parent came from outside of Japan.   The PB was released on March 8th, she had an event for it which there is a post for. Reika isn't a prime example of a gravure model though she does look quite good in these pics, really think all are extremely terrific. Enough of the gibberish as this is a huge collection of pics which total over a hundred, shame these books don't come with a video of the photo shoot.
