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.

Yui Aragaki: "Mix" movie screening pics and more....

 Thanks to another screening for the "Mix" film we learned our one new thing for the day. The new item is the pop-rock group Shishamo who sings the theme song and has a few other tunes in the movie. I had never head of them until today and though you wouldn't think it actually prefer J-Rock to J-Pop but it seems too many of my fave bands have broken up.
 Will do a bit more investigating of this trio who formed the group in 2011 and all are in their young twenties. That above song isn't a hard rocker but it's linked to their YT site so you can check out more of their videos. Pics of them are from today's special screening of the film and the group is so-so popular but their last album did hit the top ten

 Pair of Gakky mag spreads for today, there are a few other new ones which will be appearing in more upcoming posts and Gakky has probably had more solo posts than any actress this past month. This set with her co-star Eita is from the October 19th edition of Tokyo Walker Plus.

 One new solo Gakky spread which is from the current issue of Mina.

 There's been so much promoting for the "Mix" film it'll be a disappointment if it doesn't open in the top spot, the official premiere is this Saturday. On October 18th Gakky along with Eita and Shishamo attended a special screening just for high school students at the Ebisu Garden Room in Tokyo. It's not a big place as only 110 were in attendance, as usual Gakky was dressed low-key yet very in a very sophisticated style which we've all come to expect from her. Didn't see a video of the event so after the pics check out more from the Shishamo band, it's a promo video for their Budokan concert DVD and they do sound much better live.


  1. J-Rock m8, I'm more on the metal side but I dig many types of songs
    and Nocturnal Bloodlust
    is all I need(especially Nocturnal Bloodlust). Don't need to watch it, it's just a couple of songs(Babymetal one is LIVE) it's there if you're curious. Rock bands are always awesome when it comes to LIVE performances

  2. Know of Babymetal but have never checked them out too much. Judy and Mary, Number Girl, GO!GO! 7188 are a few of my huge fave rock bands but sadly all are no longer around though still do listen to them. Stereopony was a recent band who also disbanded and they were just so good, kind of broke me when they broke up.

  3. BLEACH!(anime) if I remember right, Stereopony had a song for it's opening. Too bad the anime ended up sucking in the end. Just listened to a few songs from the groups you mentioned and Number Girl seems to have hit the spot. Heard Judy and Mary's 'Overdrive' somewhere before but can't remember.

  4. I wish our local cinema will show Mix Movie here in PH.

    I find Gakki in Mina Mag...hot (sleeveless one) O__O

  5. Gakky has to be one of the hottest gals around who doesn't really look hot(?).
    Can't go wrong with any of Judy and Mary's tunes, the live ones are especially terrific and their tune "Sobakasu"
    (そばかす) is one of the most famous J-Rock tunes of all time.
