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.

SKE48: A little bit of this and that for.... Sarina Souda!!!!
These days there's a definite resemblance to Misa Eto, if you can be compared to her you're
oki doki in my book. Sarina has been an SKE member for almost five years now but it's just been in the last few months we've been seeing much more of her. SKE now has over sixty members and guess that means a few are sadly forgotten about but luckily for us that's no longer the case for Sarina. After this post are the scans for her "Urabanashi" photobook which inspired this post.
Sarina turned 25 in January but there's few other SKE members that are older. That's a key reason I've remained an SKE fan as they seem to be one of the older J-Pop groups, doesn't seem as though they have as many key graduations. There's a few other members of the group who have never had a post and think I'll do some for those forgotten gals who deserve a moment in the spotlight. Sarina has an Ameba blog and these are some recent pics, for some reason really like the fifth one.
Sarina has been in so few spreads over the years and until lately only one had one solo set. These first two have already been posted in a group mag post but in case you missed them they do merit an encore. Both of these fine sets are promoting Sarina's new PB and both sadly have only four pics. First batch is from the February 6th issue of Spa! while the others are from the February 20th Flash, the first pic from that spread really resembles Misamisa.
Another pair of Sarina mag spreads which are older. This first one isn't too ancient as it's from Young Gangan #16 from August of last year, three pics for that set. The other one is quite old and it's Sarina's only other solo spread which is from the June 2015 edition of EX-Taishu.
This last set of Sarina pics are the ones that really resemble Misamisa, maybe I'll do a comparison post in the future. On February 9th there was a fan meeting session for the PB which was released two days before, the event took place at the Fukuya bookstore in Shinjuku. On the 8th there was also an event for the book in Nagoya but these pics are just from the Tokyo session.
No good video of it but following the pics do have a short but fun one of Sarina throwing out the first pitch at a Seibu Lions game from September 2016. She's from Saitama which is where the team plays, rare for a member of SKE not to be from the Nagoya area.
