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.

Keyakizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #19....

 Less than three week's before Keya's first photobook will be released, as you can see that member will be Rika. She's one of my huge faves from the group though wonder why she was chosen first to have a PB? She is popular despite her introverted ways and there's no doubt she's an attractive gal, that top pic looks good but think there may be better ones in the book. Hmmmm, happen to have one of them right here and this pic gets a Nao rating of A++++++++++!!!!

 It will be a nice competition between the two on whose PB will be the better one, hope they keep it friendly but for now Neru may have a slight edge.

 Let's get straight to the mag spreads as there are quite a few pics for today. Think most fans prefer the conservative, laid back style of Rika's and count me in with that group. She's been an exclusive model for Larme since July and represents them at the big fashion shows. She'll be making an appearance at next month's 'Tokyo Girls Collection' show for Larme and these pics are from volume 31 of the mag. There's a few other models with her, their names are in the eighth pic.

 There's two with the name of Yui in Keya, one of them we see much more often in mags or at events. The other though is a different story and that's the one with the last name of Kobayashi. Another birthday passed by me as she turned eighteen on October 23rd, perhaps it's time to list the member's birthdays on the side? This fine set is from volume 25 of BLT Graph.

 Smallish set from a special Winter edition of Nikkei Entertainment, least the Hiragana gals get a page and will be back with two more "Re:Mind" recaps soon.

 Final spread for today belongs to the other Yui who is Imaizumi. Since she got her haircut she looks like such a different person and I really think she looks fabulous, she has one of the most attractive faces in Keya. This superb set is from the November 16th issue of Weekly Shonen.


  1. Yui.I aka Cutest In The WORLD!!!
    Them prices though on Larme(not like I'm ever gonna wear it), 6th pic Rika's shoes 20 000 yen(178US, 235AUS!!) for shoes that look like someone ripped the hell out of. Then ya got the bottom right girl's shoes, 60 000 yen(535US,...707AUS!!!!😵)

  2. Oooops, forgot to add the final page of the spread in. On that page it said prices are a tad high as the shoes also come included with the model, seems like a fair price to me.

  3. Ohhhh you bastard, probably already 10 steps ahead of me

  4. I'm a nice guy, only bought the shoes Rika was wearing leaving two unsold pairs....

  5. ...😠...("two~ unso~ld pairsss")😡!!
