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.
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.

Rika Izumi: Some current activities....
Not sure if 2018 has been a busy year or not for Rika. She finally was at an event yesterday which was her first one of the year, info on that at the bottom. But there's also been a huge lack of mag spreads the last few months and very few models have topped her pictorials the past year. Her "Princess Jellyfish" drama just finished it's run and debating whether to view it or not.
Does look like one of the better shows for the Winter season and did finally find a subbed version of it so a bit undecided on what to do. You'll find out soon enough as it's a series I would recap and leaning toward starting it soon. Getting close to April and if you need a calendar for your desktop have a perfect pic for you and also have one for May which are from Rika's official calendar.
Was unsure of 2018 had been a busy year for Rika as we haven't heard too much from her. Yet she has been appearing in many clothing line's Spring and Summer collections so guess you could say she has been quite active. Rika used to have many features at the Maquia site though none since her last post though she did have a three page spread in their March issue.
That's the only Rika spread for today but do have close to fifty brand new pics. With Online is a site where she's been quite active and these are all recent pics from it.
No Rika gravure type of pics for today but that's fine with me as I may prefer her classier style. Rika will be hitting the age of thirty on October 11th but she looks better to me with each passing year. These are some of the superb classier mode of pics from the Tocco Spring collection.
Few more pics from a site and these are for Voce. Top two pics are of Rika promoting Karada Advance and you can view that newish CM at the top.
These are my fave Rika pics for today which are new ones for the Apuweiser Spring collection.
Yesterday Rika made her first appearance at an event and she always looks super duper at them. It wasn't for a product but for the American film "Red Sparrow" as she does the dubbed voice of the movie's heroine Dominika, the film opens in Japan on Friday. No video of the event is out yet but do have some sterling pics of her from it.
EDIT: A video of the event came out a day alter, you can view it after the pics.
