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...Risa Watanabe... 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.

The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films.

SKE48: Magazine scans #3....

 Have done many recent mag spread posts for NMB, mentioned they're coming close to having the best looking members of any J-Pop group. They do have many attractive gals but have been saying for years SKE has the hottest gals of any '48' group and still think that way, more so after viewing today's fabulous sets.
 Above are the covers for SKE's 22nd single "Muishiki no Iro", also above is the PV which I hadn't posted before. The tune is quite good and it's showing some staying power as it's still in the top twenty after nine weeks, release date for the single was January 10th. Sales pale in comparison with their ones from years ago but it's approaching 400,000 in sales which is SKE's best seller in two years. Have a few CD insert pics here from the single.

 This Summer marks SKE's tenth anniversary as a group, sure there will be many special events coming up but none have been revealed yet. Perhaps more singles as they've only been releasing two a year since 2014, actually they just had one in 2017. What I'd like to see is a single with some of the graduated members appearing on it, didn't AKB do something like that?
 Would be nice to see Rena again and speaking of her will have a post soon for her current activities. Kind of miss her and so don't the group's fans as the sales began dropping rapidly for their singles after she graduated in August 2015. Another graduate who I liked was Masana, she left the group last November and at the time she was 27 which made her their oldest member  She never appeared in many mag spreads when she was a member but does have a small one in the April 17th edition of Flash, wonder if Masana is returning to show biz?

 So many members appear to be very young but that's not the case. Kaho still looks like a teen but she'll be turning 21 in five weeks, where has she been hiding all this time? This superb set is from the May issue of Entame and the bottom four are bonus pics.

 More sultry Kaho pics from the new issue of Platinum Flash which is volume three.

 Natsuki is another member we need to see more of, think SKE now has close to sixty members. Problem is when groups get that big too many get lost in the shuffle which is such a shame. This is one stupendous set from another Flash edition titled 'Best of Winter 2018'. It's also the final set and Natsuki is another member you don't think is too old yet she'll be turning 22 this year. She's a bit of a late comer as she didn't join SKE until 2013 when she was seventeen.
