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: "Asahinagu" movie DVD release event pics
Don't think any of the videos on YT will remain there long so instead have the film's trailer above, if a video that won't be deleted appears will post it. This should be the first of many Nogi posts for the next week, still don't have full time access to a computer but will try to squeeze many posts in. First will be a post for mag spreads and it's been a while since there's been one of them but that's mainly due to a lack of them.
Nogi's twentieth single "Synchronicity" could end up being the #1 single for 2018. It's already the group's biggest selling single as it sold an amazing 1.1 million in it's first week out, second week sales were 97,600. That blew my mind when I saw those sales figures, it's a good tune but didn't expect sales of 1.2 million in two weeks. Also coming up for Nogi posts will be a few from this weekend's 'Girls Awards' Spring/Summer fashion show, think about seven members will be there.
On to the event and it's been a while since we've seen more than one Nogi member at a promo event, they used to appear at one or more a month. The "Asahinagu" movie will be released on DVD tomorrow and I'm looking forward to viewing the film. It was a rarity for Idol movies as it was in the toip ten for ticket sales for three weeks, can't recall ever seeing an Idol movie in the top ten.
Nanase had the lead role of Asahi in the film, she's racked up three leading roles in the past year. She was at the event along with Sayuri who I'm not a huge fan of but do admit she looked more than oki doki at the event.
Also in attendance was Reika and there was a mini birthday party for her as she'll be turning 24 tomorrow, most first generation members are now at the age or older. Nanase will be hitting that age on May 25th and naturally will have many posts for her between now and then. On to the event which was held at the TOHO Cinemas in Hibiya, TOHO released the film which came out last September 22nd and here's many, many pics from it.
