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.

Nogizaka46: The 'Mai Shiraishi post' #30....
Didn't think this was going to be a huge or epic post but worked hard at it and bet there's over fifty new Mai pics for her army to savor. But also had a theory about her graduation and though it'll certainly be a sad occasion it's inevitable and think timing wise it's set up for August.
Nogi's twentieth single is scheduled to be released on April 25th, they usually have one every 3-4 months. That means the following single would come out in August and right around Mai's 26th birthday which is on the twentieth. Kind of makes sense to go out on a birthday like two other Nogi members have, realize it's still early but to me that could be the chain of events.
Of curse Mai would also be the center of that farewell single and an even better present for her numerous fans would be another photobook. "Passport" which came out 13 months ago has now sold 260,000 copies which is such a mind boggling figure, how can one top that achievement?
Mai has been a bit quiet as of late, she's still been doing many activities but just not as many as she once did. Sure once it gets closer to April 25th we'll be seeing much more of her and the other Nogi members as Keya is now in the spotlight as their sixth single was released today. Not a huge variety of things due her semi-quietness but as mentioned do have fifty or so new pics and these here are a few group cards that hadn't been posted.
Mai has a lot of heart as she takes it upon herself to meet with wanna-be(or is it Watanabe?) Idols often, here she is with a pair of them and seems to have more of a liking for the second gal....
Mai does wear megane but has just signed a up with a contact lens company and has some new CM's and other promo things coming out soon. At the top is a video for the Cecil McBee Winter collection and here's many new pics for the label.
Mai had a bunch of CM's late last year for Maquia and attended two of their events but nothing for the company since then though she did have the cover for their January edition.
Sure when Mai graduates she'll still appear in many mags, featuring her definitely increases sales. Have noticed her sets have become much more conservative which is fine by me as Mai is ultra stunning even dressed in Winter outfits. Friday appears to have a new magazine which is called 'Friday White' and this small but fabulous set is from volume one.
Mai has recently announced her graduation from Ray magazine, their May issue will be her final appearance and perhaps she's cutting some ties before her August(?) departure from Nogi. Bet the May edition will feature a huge memorial to her and why not just dedicate the whole mag to her? This fine spread is from their April issue and after that check out a video. Bit of an older one but what a dynamite pairing she and Airi make....
