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.

Nogizaka46: The 'Kazumi Takayama post' #3.... aka .... Nao's 'Top Ten Nogi Members' list number two....
This will probably be one of the smaller Nogi posts you'll ever see but it doesn't happen often enough that we get to talk about Kazumi. For the second year in a row she finished #2 on my top ten list, though I like most members my top three is so far in front of the other thirty gals.
One reason for it being a small post is that this event didn't have a lot of coverage. Second time a Kazumi event has had that happen to her in the last month, the previous event was for how to invest your money. Granted that may not be an exciting topic but usually when a Nogi member is at an event the media presence is huge.
Kote looks a bit bummed out and she has every reason to be, hopefully she'll visit here which may raise her spirits up. Nogi is starting yet another new campaign which is for Kodansha Bunko, that's the largest publishing company in Japan. They're celebrating their 46th anniversary and it stands to reason they'd want to have a tie-in with Nogi46!
The pics at the top are from the Kodansha Bunko site, ones right above are from a bookstore Kazumi was at on November 3rd. According to their site there will be 46 different Nogi covers for book, one for each member. But the site said you can only get the covers by ordering online, above is a one time deal at stores as when those are gone they'll be gone from the store forever and bet they're sold out already.
Not sure of all of the details, what I've gathered is that you need to order a book first which will give you all of the details. There's 46 books in all with each member being assigned to a book, for instance Asuka graces the cover of the new novel "Family Picture". Bit of a low key campaign as the event wasn't heavily covered plus Kazumi was the only member to promote it.
Kazumi looks like she could be an author, she's a smart gal but never did attend college. She was a Nogi member at seventeen, she's 23 now, at the time her dream was to be an Idol. Not many pics as mentioned from the event but surprisingly there is a video of it which is at the bottom of the post.
Kazumi used to upload so many pics to her blog but like most of the other first generation members has really been slacking off and there's only been four of them the past month.
No other new pics as I keep up on all of Kazumi's activities, there have been a lot of recent pics as she's one of the members who usually represents the group at an event. So here's a few ultra fabulous Kazumi pics to end the post off with and to show everyone why she was my #2 member for the second year in a row plus don't forget to check out the video after them.
