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.

Keyakizaka46 and.... Nogizaka46!?!?: 'CryptoChips' promo event pics

 Won't keep this pace up but it is so much easier to do posts with my laptop back and also can have much more variety. In what has to be a record for me said to myself that I wasn't going to partake in the consumption of lagers until the repair was done, now that it is there may be a day or two break as my consumption level this weekend could be quite high.
 Here's a happening which we've never seen before(?) which is the two '46' groups doing an activity together. Keya is the sister group of Nogi so it's surprising the two groups have never been at an event together though I think they have sung on a B-side tune for a single. Thanks to the new technology with this new system I'm able to decipher what the gals are mumbling about in stage....

 Gulp, hate to tell her but it takes more than a day to recover from them!!!!

 On to the event which was held today in Tokyo. It's for a new Smartphone app from GMO and their 'Whimsical War' game. Beginning on August 20th, that's also the b-day of one of the members in attendance, winners at the game will be able to receive their winnings in virtual currency or as they call it 'Crypto Chips'. All four took a turn at playing but not sure if any of them are that good at gaming, Yuuka could be though.

 At the event were two members from Keya who were Yuuka and she's their captain, her first PB finally dropped out of the top ten in sales though it has sold close to 100,000 copies. That's about half of what her mate's first photobook has sold and I'm referring to Neru who has been a bit quiet recently. However we should be seeing more of her and the other members as Keya's next single will be out on August 15th which for some odd reason is only a week after Nogi's next single.
 Manatsu is the gal who will be celebrating her b-day on August 20th, she's turning 25 and there have been a few rumors this year about her graduating. Last but not least is Nanase and surprised her third photobook is no longer in the top ten though it has sold around 150,000 copies, expect another solo post for her next week. There's no CM out for the new app but when it comes out will post it, Keya does have some new CM's for Lawson and will have them in the group's next post.
