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.

Few tidbits....
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.

Erika Toda: "Code Blue" movie screening pics

 Have been thinking much more seriously about my all time top ten/twenty list which I've been talking about for a while. It hasn't been hard coming up with twenty names and quite a few are some huge faves that haven't been mentioned here for a long, long time. While the names for the list wasn't hard to compile figuring out the positions will be, perhaps I'll just do it in aplha order first and then list them twenty to one.
 That won't be happening for a little while though, September or October would be a good time for it. Naturally Erika will be on the list, these days she's no longer my current #1 but can see her around the fifth position or perhaps a spot higher. Will be viewing her latest drama "Gakeppuchi Hotel" starting next month and will be doing some recaps for the series. Been a busier stretch for Erika the past four months and hope that means she won't be taking a long break after the new film comes out.

 Will also be having a post this next week for another huge fave of mine who will be on that top twenty list and is also in the "Code Blue" movie. The film will premiere next Friday and will have a post or two for it, will also try to work on another post for Erika in the meantime but there hasn't been too much promoting for the movie from her or the other main cast members.
 This screening, which hwas the only one to date for the movie, was held on July 11th at the Tokyo International Forum and you'll see in the bottom pics most of the main cast was in attendance. There were 4,000 fans at the screening, there was a lottery for the tickets and over 100,000(!) CB fans applied. No doubt then this film will be #1 at the box office in it's first week out, wonder if there's any plans then for a fourth season?
 Erika has been looking much more stupendous this year, she's gained a bit of weight back but a few more pounds would help her out. Her thirtieth birtday will be taking place on August 17th which should be a national holiday in Japan. Plenty of superb pics from the screening and after them check out a short video from the event.


  1. Ohh bro, you would need a heart transplant with my all time top list

  2. When I see these pictures, I think "Erika and Minami look amazing, and what the hell is Gakky wearing?"

    1. It's what an A+ in designing looks like, it's probably an optical illusion

  3. Gakky rarely looks good at any kind of event, she dresses more blandly than a grandmother would. Erika did look amazing and she has been that way at her events this year, her Lancome event in February seemed to the return of the old Erika we've all loved.
    The post could be done by the time this comment is read but will have one for Manami from this screening. There was an event that she looked even better at which took place on July 3rd and will have a few pics from that.
