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.

Nogizaka46: The 'Mai Shiraishi post' #31....

 Wonder how many more posts for Mai there's going to be? 😢 Not enough but on the bright side there will be another post this weekend. Instead of attending a Nogi handshaking event Mai will be at tomorrow's 'Tokyo Girls Collection' Spring/Summer show, it could be her last time at one of them.
 Mai is slowly cutting all of her ties and have no clue why she's doing so. When others start quitting all of their projects it's sign they're leaving the entertainment industry. Just can't see Mai doing something like that as she's worked so hard for almost seven years to get where she is which is one of the most popular women in Japan. First she announced she was retiring from Ray magazine, shortly after that she told us of her departure from the Larme mag. To finish off the hat trick Mai announced she's now left the 'UmazuKingdom' show, she had been a co-host for close to five years.

 Her Nogi mate will be taking over the co-host duties but it just won't be the same. What's odd is that after all of those 'graduations' Mai will be appearing in a new drama beginning on April 22nd. Title of the show is "Yareta Kamo Iinkai" and it looks like she has the main female role in the show. Perhaps Mai's path will be in the acting field, from what I've seen her in she's an okay actress and probably will improve as she appears in more shows. Acting is the logical choice for most Idols but it still doesn't explain why Mai would no longer be an exclusive model for a pair of mags.

 Have posted so many tens of thousands steamy pics over the years, so many it'd be impossible to have a top twenty or even hundred. But there are a few who I'm 100% positive would make the top ten and those above two pics are just too beyond breathtaking....
 Kind of a small post, not for pics but for current activities. Mai hasn't appeared at any events for a while nor has done many mag spreads but that should be changing with Nogi's twentieth single coming out on April 25. Do have a pair of mag spreads for today and the second one is quite massive. This is a new mag called Lista and they made a wise choice fro their cover model.

 At the top of the post is an old Ray video from December 2016. Had never seen it before but it features many other Nogi members which is worth a view. These are collector edition pics as the May issue of Ray will be Mai's last appearance in the mag, she'll probably be representing them at tomorrow's TGC show. Naturally it's a huge spread as she did deserve a nice send off and this set has a whopping total of 35 pics. Like that bottom pic the best, is Mai passing the Ray torch to her well known rival? After the spread have a newish Nogi CM for Aiia.

  1. Also doubt she would quit showbiz but just take like a break or something coz usually(meaning, from what I can vaguely remember) you don't really hear anything from a graduated member for about a few months. Some go study n stuff then after that they just *poof* pop back into a little spotlight but I don't know if they were models/regulars on shows so Mai's case is pre-tty heavy.
    Speaking bout the TGC, Manaka won't be in it from what I've heard :(
