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.

Yua Shinkawa: The enormous 'A little bit of this and that' post....

 Had said I was going to try not holding on to things for too long and have smaller posts then to accomplish that. Not sure if it's worked out as the posts have gotten much larger lately though bigger ones do make for more interesting posts. Then again for a fave like Yua it was unavoidable as she's been so quiet the past few months but there's some good reasons for that. That video above is an unbeatable pair we need to see more of together.
 Those reasons are that Yua needed a rest as she'll be the busiest actress/model in Japan over the next few months as there are so many upcoming activities for her. To date Yua has never had the lead role in a drama but that's about to change as she'll be the star of not one but two(!) series starting in April. One is titled "Sick's SPEC Saga" and I'm looking forward to that one as it's a continuation of the 'SPEC' drama and movies, that's been one of the best shows from the past decade. So far there's not much info at the show's site but it won't be starting until mid-April.

 Doesn't that pic remind you of someone from C-ute? The third pic below does too. There's no doubt that Yua is one of the most beautiful gals around, hard to top how attractive her face is though the rest of her is oki doki too. The second drama Yua will have the lead role in is "Itsumademo Shiroi Hane" that begins on April 7th, it's a medical show. Have seen actresses appear often in shows that are airing at the same time but can't recall someone having the lead role in two dramas at the same time.
 The other big news is that Yua will be releasing her second photobook on March 24th. There will be an event for it on that day and we should also see Yua at the Spring 'Girls Awards' show which takes place the following day. These are some promo pics for the PB.

 Also on May 25th Yua will be starring in the play "Gunshot of the Court", what a busy stretch she has coming up and hope there will be so many more posts for her then. Have three new mag spreads and usually save the best for last but will start off with this tremendous set first. Pics are outtakes from Yua's upcoming PB which is titled "Atlas" and this set is from the March 13th Flash.

 Yua has been an exclusive model for Non-no since June 2015 and she'll be representing them at the two upcoming major fashion shows. These are some recent pics from their website.

 On to a pair of Non-no mag spreads and this set is from their March edition.

 There's usually a promo video that goes with the mags such as the one at the top but there were none for these two spreads, this set is from their April issue.

 As mentioned Yua has been very quiet as of late, actually she's been quite busy but we just haven't seen her projects yet such as the new PB and two dramas. Think her last event was at the 'Girls Awards' show which took place last September, don't think any pics had been posted from it.

 Final tidbit for today is an older event which is for her last movie. Should be out on DVD soon and hope so as it's a film I really am curious about. Title of it is "Megami Sama", did do a post for it's June 10th premiere and hard to beat this pair though the one at the top of the post may do that.
