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.

Masami Nagasawa: (too) Few recent happenings....
Masami seems to have moved into being a middle aged woman well before she is one. Granted she's always looked terrific sans for that stretch where her hair was even shorter than mine. But think the days of her jaw-dropping pictorials has come to an end, hope that's not the case but it sure seems so. So many actresses lately in their late twenties or early thirties have been trying to show their fans how sexy they still are, Masami has done the complete opposite.
She did have those ultra alluring pics from her "Cabaret" play back in January 2017 so least we still know what a knockout she still is. Guess it doesn't matter too much as I do post about many conservative gals here and will always adore Masami but do miss seeing her steamier side. At the top is a trailer for her next film "Fifty First Kisses" which will be released on June 1st. By the trailer looks to be a sappy love story but then again one that appears to be a sad story too.
Masami's 2019 film won't be coming out for a while but looks to be an intense movie. It's titled "Masquerade Hotel" which is about a series of murders, she doesn't play the killer but that's be an interesting role for her to do. Lack of mag spreads recently but that's been the case for two years now but do have an A+ set here which is from the January edition of Frau.
Masami has been much busier this year as she's appeared at about five events, think her last post in January had one of them. On March 3rd she was at the premiere of the anime film "Doraeman Nobita's Treasure Island" and that's a long running series. Thought Masami looked much better at the premiere and in the movie she does the voice of Fiona who is the wife of a pirate after Doraeman.
Between 2005 and 2014 Masami averaged close to two dramas a year but her next one will be her first regular series since 2014. The show is titled "The Confidence Man JP", she plays Dako in the drama who is a con woman and that seems like an interesting role for her. Masami has the lead in the drama which will be airing on Fuji-TV at 9:00 pm on Mondays, that's a very prestigious time slot. First episode will be on April 9th and on March 26th there was a special screening for the show. Plenty of pics here from the event along with a short video of it, had wanted to have a promo for the series but they've all been blocked as I live outside of Japan.
