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.

Erina Mano: Just a few more recent happenings....
Only a few odds and ends for today as I think this will catch us up with all of Erina's recent activities as she's been a busy gal this past month. Let's keep our fingers crossed she doesn't disappear for a stretch like so many other actresses do. Least Erina will be on the small screen for the next two months as her newest drama "Kareshi wo Ron de Kaimashita" began Friday night. Do have the first episode which had been on YT but don't know if it's still there. Will recap the series if it gets subbed and these are some screenshots from a short eight minute promo episode for the show.
Ikumi had a fairly big role in that mini episode, going to enjoy seeing her in a drama. Erina has done so many interviews for the show and most of them were done on the same day. You can tell as she was dressed the same for all of them which took place in mid-February. Least the pics are all dynamite with five each from Mag2 News and Paris Mag sites followed by four pics from the Filmaga site.
These are new pics from the JJ site as it looks like Erina is now a model for the magazine.
Erina released her eleventh photobook on March 6th, highly recommend checking out her older books and click on the label on the right for them. Hopefully will post the pics from the current PB but not right away, here's a few promo pics for it which have been posted already but Erina looks so terrific an encore was needed. The pics for the PB were taken in London last Autumn.
Nana Komatsu is a gal who needs a post asap and may do one later on for her, was about to start one(or two) for her recently but for some unknown reason aborted the project. She has the lead female role in the "Sakamichi no Apollon" film which had it's premiere yesterday. Erina isn't the star of the film but does have a big part, she does have the lead role in her new drama. Few pics from yesterday's event which took place at the TOHO Cinema Day Plaza, one other thing after these pics.
Erina has done a few concerts now and again the past five years but for the most part has retired as a singer. Her last single came out in December 2012 and don't think I've ever talked about her music. Will in future posts and for today have the PV for her ninth single "Seishun no Serenade" which was released on January 26, 2011 when she was nineteen and it hit #13 on the charts.
