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.

Few tidbits....
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.

NMB48: Magazine scans #2....

 NMB's first group post for mag spreads was quite popular, wasn't sure if they still had many fans out there but it appears the answer is a resounding yes. The above pic is a few years old, the questions are who are all of them members and how many have graduated? One departee is Miyuki who by far was my fave member, come to think of it my second fave member who also left is Nana who will be in the above pic too. Giving away too many of the names.... many probably forget but Yuki who is also in the pic was with them for a short while and appeared on two singles.
 Miyuki's last single with the group was "Boku ni Inai" which was released on August 3, 2016, she left the group one week after the single came out. Very few full length NMB PV's on YT but there are many live songs so have one of them above from the date the single came out. The song of course hit #1 on the charts selling 304,000 copies in it's first week.

 To me SKE always has had the best looking members of any J-Pop group, think they still do but not by much over NMB. Been looking at some of their recent spreads over and over again which has led me to think.... why are there so many stunning J-Pop Idols???? The number of jaw-dropping ones seems to be increasing every year and what's good about it is that so many are older, think everyone today is in their twenties save for perhaps one.
 On to the spreads and after the last post thought I'd have to start having pics from 2017. That's not the case as every set for today is from this year and with their next single coming out on April 4th there should be plenty more new ones coming up. First up is the only solo spread, it features the dazzling Yuuka who will be turning 21 in August, this is from the March 29th(!?) edition of Young Animal Arashi.

 More Yuuka and don't we need to see so much more of her? The answer is yes and she shares this set from the February issue of Bomb with her 22 year old mate Ayaka Okita. She's someone we rarely hear about and it's a shame as she looks A+, just too many members in the group these days. Bottom four pics are bonus ones from the photo shoot.

 Two more sets to go, the spreads today add up to be 43 pics. From a special Flash edition 'Best of Winter 2018' are the pair of Fuuka who turned 21 on February 24th and Sae who these days may be the hottest member to me.

 Don't tell Miru she's not the hottest member as she just well may be, where did NMB acquire all of these exquisite members?! Miru leads off the final set which is a huge one as seven members each have two pages from the February Entame, omitted the younger gals.


  1. Took a look at all the members of the 48 groups and guess I'll be leaning on the AKB side for best looking...coz of (Natsuki Kojima) reasons but oiii brah Riho Kotani, Shu Yabushita and Ayaka Umeda m8👌
    Miyuki and Nana ay...well


  2. Hardly know anything about Natsuki though was checking up on her and she does look okay(with enough beers), she'll be turning 23 this Thursday.
    Not sure what 'ay....well' means, Miyuki to me is the hottest of all '48' members....
