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...Rena Takeda... Miyu Kitamuki... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... 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.
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.
The new blog is up and running, there you will find 100% of the posts dedicated to actresses, dramas and films. That means you won't find those types of posts here any more which means you'll have to go there for posts featuring Erika Toda, Mio Imada, Tsubasa Honda, Park Min-Young and many others.

Kasumi Arimura: Few recent tidbits....
Been exactly five months since the last Kasumi post but think she's been busy working on two films that will be coming out later on this year. Have mentioned a few times recently how so many of my fave actresses tend to take such long breaks, to me it seems they work only 3-4 months a year. That hasn't been the case for Kasumi as I don't think any actress as been as busy as her the past five years, she definitely needed a little time off which she deserved.
One of the films coming out later this year is "Cafe Funiculi Funicula", release date for it is September 21st. Kasumi has the lead role in the movie and it seems like one of those quirky films that I enjoy so much. At the top of the post is the first mini trailer for it.
Didn't know until two weeks ago but on May 9th Kasumi released her second photobook. Title of it is "Clear" and there was another PB with that title released a few years ago. The book has been a solid seller, it's been in the top ten for sales all three weeks and total copies sold to date is 21,000+. Pics for the PB were shot in Melbourne, not the one in Florida, it's the second recent photobook that was based in the city.
In an interview Kasumi said she chose the place because it's the first Australian city to finally reach an English literacy rate of 10%. Plus she mentioned for the first time in two decades deaths due to cannibalism were below 5,000, not many cities in the country can claim that honor. Half of the PB consists of older pics while the other half are new ones, Kasumi turned 25 in February and it's kind of a look of how she's grown over the years.
Haven't been many Kasumi spreads this year, these first two are going back to January 4th which is when both magazines came out. First four pics are from Flash while the other four are from Shukan Bunshun.
These next two spreads are for Kasumi's "Clear" PB, like the above couple of sets they're just way too small. There's four from WPB #21 while the rest are from Young Jump #21-22.
Last spread is by far the biggest of them as Kasumi graces the cover of the June More.
On May 29th Kasumi was at an event for au, she's appeared at many for the company the past few years. It's for their new Summer campaign that's supposed to help consumers design their own houses, plenty of pics from the event which is followed by a video. You'll notice that Rina is there and she's someone who I really like but don't do enough posts for. But there will be one for her next week as besides pics from this press conference she also has a few new mag spreads.
