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.

Nogizaka46: The gargantuan 'Mai Shiraishi post' #32....
No more talk about Mai graduating, it'll eventually happen but that's also the case with all of Nogi members so let's just enjoy her time in the group until her departure. Mai has left a few magazines recently along with no longer being the co-host of the 'UmazuKingdom' show. But she does have other projects starting up as it appears she'll be concentrating more on her acting career.
This Sunday the drama "Yareta Kamo Iinkai" will be starting, at the top is a new short promo video for the series. Looks to be an interesting show and will be viewing it if it gets subbed. It's Mai's biggest role to date as she has the female lead in the drama, hoping there may be an event for it over the weekend as there hasn't been much promoting for it up until now.
Plus on May 12th Mai will be starring in the Spring 'Strange Stories of the World' TV movie. That's a series which has been airing for many years and it's broken down into four or five short films. In her segment she'll be playing an OL, I've viewed many of the movies and while they're not truly scary they are very entertaining watches.
Mai has left modeling for two magazines, one is Larme though she may be in their next issue. The other is Ray and she made her final appearance in the May edition which had a feature of her that was over thirty pages, these could be her last pics from the site.
Hope Mai continues to appear in mags as not many have topped her spreads over the past five years and doubt if many Idols have done as many spreads as she has since 2013. In the last Nogi mag spread post had this superb new collection of pics from the April 30th issue of Big Comic Spirits. Going to post the pics again as there's been some bonus ones that have been released at their site which are the bottom eight pics, Mai's still looking A++++!!!!
A new company Mai will be working with is 'Shoplist.com', perhaps she was getting a bit tired of working for the two magazines she recently left as she had been with them for a long time. There's two CM's for them coming out soon and these are some promo pics from their site which are mainly stills from the two CM's
Ooops, just searched YT and found two CM's for the company, have one after the next set of pics and let's hope the video stays up for a while. Today, which is April 20th, Mai was at a press conference for 'Shoplist.com' where they introduced her as their new spokesperson. I like the way she dresses a bit elegantly at these events as Mai is one of the more classier Idols. The company is a mail order site where you can get huge discounts on clothing items, think she was also promoting an app for them.
