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.
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.

Jurina Matsui: Happy.... 21st birthday!!!!
Was getting used to Jurina's reddish hair color that she had for about six months last year, wouldn't mind seeing her change to it again. Wonder how many total members combined the '48' groups have had? Bet it could be over a thousand though doubt if I could name 20% of them. One thing I'm fairly sure of is that Jurina without a doubt is one of the hottest Idols ever, if I had a list of the 'Hottest 48 Members' of all time she'd be in second place, would imagine not many would care for my #1.
At the top is a video from February 9th as six members of SKE attended the 'C3 AFA Live Expo' in Hong Kong. The whole show is on YT but cut up into parts, viewed many of them but sadly didn't find one of them performing "Oki Doki", grrrr....
Jurina isn't the easiest of Idols to post about, she is very active but many of her activities don't make for interesting posts. SKE will be doing a concert at the Saitama Super Arena at the end of March, I enjoy their shows more than any other '48' group and that goes for the songs too. Jurina does do many entries on her blog and Instagram accounts, here are some recent ones. Top few are from when the group was in HK while there's also two of her winning the latest AKB Wrestling Championship. Though I do watch most AKB dramas skipped the wrestling one, watched the first two episodes and can't believe how inane it was.
Would like to see SKE going back to releasing 3-4 singles a year instead of two. There's only been one since July, that single "Muishiki no Iro" was released on January 10th. Naturally it hit the top spot on the Orcion charts and to date has sold about 325,000 copies. Have two of the covers here plus some pics from a group handshaking event on March 3rd.
Just one new Jurina mag spread for today but as usual it's one that's close to unbeatable as she graces the cover of the March 6th issue of Flash... forgot to say it but her b-day is on the 8th.
Not a monumental b-day post but have a feeling there will be another post for her very soon. Hard to believe Jurina is just 21, she's someone who developed very early and if she stays with SKE for a few more years can see her eventually being my all time '48' member. No new videos and have posted most of her better older ones so have another SKE clip from their Hing Kong trip after this set featuring some of Jurina's greatest pics.
