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.

Nana Yamada: 2018 Calendar promo event pics and video....
Admit in advance that this will not be Nana's best post but we don't hear from her often enough and there are many fine pics from today's event. That is if you like Nana which I do quite a bit, seems she's starting to get back into the spotlight a bit more lately as this is her second post in a week. Should be another upcoming one too as she'll be appearing in the next issue of UTB and these are pics Nana posted on her Instagram account from the photo shoot.
EDIT: It's the day after and a video of her calendar event is now available which you can view at the top and forget what I said at the bottom of the post.
Couple of projects I may be working on though there won't be a rush for them. One is to have some sort of 'Nana__' series as that name with perhaps an ending to it(se, mi, etc.) is easily the most common one here. Nana would be way up on the list if I had a top ten or whatever, let me think about what format would work out best. Another one is something I've only done once before which is a comparison post. Maybe these aren't the best pics to compare two of my biggest faves of all time as there are better ones. To me the Idols that look the most similar are Nana and Saki Nakajima, a spread featuring the pair of them would without a doubt be #1 of all time.
Like I said there are better pics comparing the two blood boiling gals but they truly could be twins or at least sisters. Nana released her 2018-19 calendar week, it's been an NMB tradition to have calendars go from April to March to follow the school year and the pics here are from it.
There was a theme for the calendar which was 'Nana's daily life'. As the title says it was of her daily life such as visiting coffee shops, going to stores, public baths, etc. Last post had a pair of mag spreads of outtake pics from the calendar and with the way she looks like now wish she would release another photobook.
On March 21st there was a fan greeting session for the calendar at the Book Fast store in Shinjuku. Unlike her mag spreads Nana usually dresses quite conservatively for these events and I actually enjoy seeing her dressed that way. She said at the event her goal is to begin a diet to lose 7 kg, her start date for it will be on April 3rd which also happens to be her 26th b-day. Plenty of terrific pics from today's event with the bottom ones being from her Instagram account. No video of it but do have a must watch oldie one after the pics featuring a pair of her ex-NMB mates.
