Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Jin Se-Yeon.... 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, most will be at least one year old.

Keyakizaka46: 2018 Magazine scans #16 and a tad more....

 Slowing down on these 2018 mag posts, there were thirteen by the end of February but only three since then and it may slow down even more. Nogi has their next single coming out in two weeks, that means Keya will probably step back for a while as the groups tend to do that when the other has a single coming out.
 From April 6th to the 8th Keya celebrated their second anniversary with three concerts at the Musashino Forest Sports Plaza Arena. The place holds 8,000 fans and all of the shows were naturally sold out, once again Manaka and Yurina were absent. Neither one has appeared at a group event for over a month now but the other members seem to carry on well without them. At the top is a short news clip from the concerts.

 There have been more happenings with the members but holding a few pics back.for some solo posts. Been doing many lately for Nogi but for some reason haven't done enough of them for Keya members. Will try to have one for at least four gals this month, one will be for Risa who may have turned into the most seductive Idol currently active and she out shined everyone else at the last 'Tokyo Girls Collection' show.

 Nanako is also a huge fave of mine, one reason perhaps for the lack of solo posts as that the members don't appear in enough mags or at events. There have been three recent Hustle Press features with Nanako with these being from one of them.

 Keya's sixth single "Glass wo Ware!" has shown some staying power. It's first week sales were an incredible 833,000 copies sold, in it's next four weeks it sold another 115,000 so looks like in about five weeks the group will have it's first million seller.

 Finally on to some recent mag spreads, don't know why anan #2095 had only a two page set for Akane as she deserves ten times as many with her sultry looks....

But she is a member of the subunit Aozora to MARRY who performed a few tunes at the second anniversary shows. At them it was just the Kanji members as for some odd reason Hiragana didn't even do one set.

 Manaka is also part of the quintet but was sadly not at the show, health reasons have been her excuse for taking an extended break. However she is with the other four gals of Aozora to MARRY who have this A+ set though a tad small form the April 18th edition of Weekly Shonen. Surprised they had a spread as they didn't have a tune on the new single.

 Miyu is a member who we've seen very little of the past few months, she was one of the trio who were 'hurt' at the New Years Eve 'Kohaku' show. She has the first set from the current issue of 20+ Sweet along with a small set featuring Rika.

 Lastly is the biggest spread of the day which has Neru on the cover of the April 23rd issue of WPB and she seems to have become the face of Keya.
