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.

Hiragana46: Magazine scans #5....
Don't know what relationship Hiragana and Kanji have these days, to me it's none at all. The two groups never do activities as one unit, rarely appear on their variety shows together unless it's a contest between the two groups nor do mag spreads together. Guess you could say Hiragana is an official sister group these days as I don't think any of the members will have a chance to move up to being a Kanji member unless there's a mass of graduations.
But Hiragana is popular in their own right as they've had a drama which was better than the second one featuring the Kanji members. Plus the gals just released their first album on June 20th, title for it is "Hashindasu Shunkan". So far it's been a smash hit, first day sales were 112,00 copies sold and after three days the total is close to 142,000 and it may top the Oricon charts this week. For comparison Nogi's Undergirls album sold 101,000+ copies in it's first week.
First Hiragana post since March as there hasn't been many happenings lately with them nor with the Kanji members. But with their first album out they've gone back to appearing in a lot of mag spreads and let's hope it continues for a while. First off is a bit of an older one that came out in April featuring Ayaka and Kyoko, this set is from Young Magazine #15.
Another small Young Magazine spreasd which is from issue #27 with Memi and Mirei.
For a while Kyoko was appearing in two or three spreads a month, that's sadly slowed down. To me would love to see her have a photobook and think many fans out there are in agreement with that. She's joined by Miho in this spread from the June 13th edition of Weekly Shonen.
Group spread promoting the new album which is from WPB #27.
