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 'Mai Shiraishi post' #33....
This puts Mai back in the lead as far as total posts go though don't think she'll remain at the top for much longer unless she steps up her activities. Do have quite a few new pics for today and at the top is a Big Comic Spirits video for her April spread with them, those pics are in the Nogi '2018 Magazine scans #6' post.
Mai is currently in the drama "Yareta Kamo Iinkai" which she has the leading female role. Sadly don't think it's being subbed but will be on the lookout as most dramas with Nogi members tend to get subbed. Mai is also going to be in the play "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon", she'll be playing the Queen. The play will be opening up in June at the Ginza theater, there's going to be a total of eleven Nogi members in it.
Speaking of totals Mai's "Passport" photobook has now sold close to 275,000 copies which easily has to be a record for an Idol. Now the question is how does she top that? Haven't heard any word about another PB but seems if there was another one it'd be hard pressed to beat that figure. Also no news about a Mai graduation, I figure if it was going to happen this year it'd be in August.
That's when Mai will be turning 26, also Nogi will probably release their next single around that time plus that's when their Summer tour will be ending so seems like a logical time for her departure though hope I'm wrong. On to some newer items and here's some 2018 cards that hadn't been posted yet.
Mai is no longer a model for the Ray and Larme mags though she will have one final spread for the latter mag. She's now a model for With and will have some pics from them in her next post. But just because Mai won't be appearing in those mags doesn't mean there won't be as many spreads as magazines must be fighting with each other to have her appear in their mags. Have two new sets for today with the first one being from volume 38 of TV Colors.
Have noticed Mai's spreads the past year have become much more conservative which is still fine by me as any Mai pic is without a doubt super duper. Second spread for today is from the May 5th edition of Friday.
At last Saturday's 'Girls Awards' Spring/Summer fashion show Mai didn't represent Ray as she's no longer with them but was there for With and Evelyn which is a clothing line. Pics here are from the event which is followed by a video that also has some other Nogi and Keya members.
