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: 2018 Magazine scans #7...
Nanase's third PB which was released on May 9th sold 92,300 copies in it's first week, was hoping sher'd break the 100 K mark. It's the third highest first week sales for a '46' member, Mai is first with 104 K for her second PB. Neru of all people ranks second as her first photobook which came out in December sold 97,000+ copies in it's first week and it was one of the better '46' photobooks.
Nanase's second PB is still in the top ten, to date it's sold 167,00 copies and it appears she'll top that figure with this new book. Will have a post for her and many other Nogi members this weekend as fourteen(!!) of them will be appearing at Saturday's 'Girls Awards' Spring/Summer show. That's quite a few members and their previous record was nine members at a show. Some of the new gals are the third generation members while Hina from the Undergirls will be appearing at her first show.
On to the spreads, there really hasn't been nearly as many of them as previous years and can't give a good reason why that is. First off is a Nogi memebr who I really like a lot but has been so quiet this year. That's Erika who graces the cover of the May 7th Big Comic Spirits.
Miona is another member who hasn't been as active this year though she will be at the 'Girls Awards' show, this set is from the June edition of BLT.
Unsure if this next spread was posted but seeing as how today is Reika's 24th birthday can't leave her out of this post. This fine set of pics is from the April issue of Brody.
Trio for this next set which is from the May 8th edition of Flash. It featuress Junna who is a second generation member who we rarely see, she's joined by Shiori. The third member is Misa and don't we need another photobook from my fave Nogi member!?
Last off is another trio set which has the three 'M' members Manatsu, Miona and Mizuki. Should have been a bigger set as they were on the cover and this spread is from the May 1st SPA!.
