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.

Keyakizaka46: 2018 Magazine scans #15 and a tad more....



 Like the slick uniforms Keya's new center brought with her. As mentioned in the group's previous post the A-side of the new single will be "Ride my Honda", it was just announced that the B-side will be the old SK rocker "Cycling is Fun", can't wait for it's release.


 As if Neru wasn't busy enough she'll now be the main host for the group's radio show 'Starry Sky' which airs Friday nights on Nippon radio. Yurina was the main host since the show began in 2016 but she seems to have run into much misfortune since that 'Kohaku' show mishap. She used to appear in so many mags but it's a rarity these days when she has a solo spread or even appears with other members. Have heard some music shows are a bit leery of having her appear on their shows as they may be liable if something happens, she really needs to change a few things with the way she acts.
 Besides the new host on hand for the March 15th press conference was Nana, Rika O. and Rika W. The event was held at the Nippon Imagine Studio and 120 lucky fans won the chance to be in the audience where they also taped some segments for this Friday's show.























 Was going through the member's birthday's and what is an extremely odd fact is that not one of the 42 gals celebrates a b-day in March! To me that sounds odd and Nogi has only three members with a b-day in this month. On to the mag spreads which only consist of three but there are many pics and no sense holding in to them for too long.
 Almost forgot to mention it but Keya's sixth single "Glass wo Ware" sold 55,000 copies last week. It was third on the Oricon charts and sales for the two weeks has been 888,700 so it appears the group will soon have it's first million seller. On to the spreads and the Yui-chans have been unstoppable lately as one of them or even both are seemingly in almost every group spread. The pair grace the cover of a special Flash issue called 'Early Spring Best'.








 UTB puts out a special edition each Spring for Idols who graduate from high school. It appears that Yui K. will be doing that as she's in their issue, she turned eighteen last October. Should count how many solo spreads she's had this year, bet the total is already over twenty of them.
















 Last but certainly not least is a fine set from Neru who once again has a cover and it's for the April 2nd edition of Young Magazine. Her first PB has finally fallen off the charts so don't know where the total sales currently stand but it must be around 165,000 which is so amazing as nobody in the J-Pop world was expecting sales like that.
