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: A little bit of this and that for 2018 #5(?)....
Sigh, slipping in my old age as I completely forgot about someone turning a year older yesterday, even the cake I hurriedly baked for her doesn't appear to have raised her spirits. Of course it's Hinako I'm referring to and to be honest these days it's been easy to forget about her as she's nowhere to be found. Yesterday she did her first blog entry since April(!), at one time she was among the best in Nogi for doing entries.
Will have another Zodiac post coming up next week and perhaps I'll have a separate one for Nogi. Besides Hinako another member is turning a year older on Friday plus there's at least four gals who celebrate a birthday in August, will try to think of some sort of post to do for the honorees.
No news for the Nogi's 21st single today, if you need info for it check out yesterday's group post for the covers and lineup. As with most singles we should be seeing so much more of the members in the upcoming weeks promoting the single in mag spreads, interviews, company tie-ins and naturally some cards such as these new ones.
Am planning on getting my repaired laptop back this Friday so there may not be many posts for the next few days as it does take time setting up a new system. But there will be plenty of posts coming up and there will be more of a variety of things as I've kind of neglected Japanese and Korean actresses the past few months. First on the list of posts to do may be another solo one for Miona, these are blog pics with the top two sweltering ones being from a few days ago, whew........
Weren't enough sets for a mag spread post but do have a few new ones for today. That birthday I mentioned at the top that is taking place on Friday is for Yuuri who though an Undergirl has been one of my all time fave Nogi members and what an underrated attractive gal she is. Will try to have a solo post for her soon because of the b-day and these tremendous pics are from a new Flash special edition called 'Best of Early Summer', this set deserved more than five pages.
Asuka is the center for the new single, her other time manning that position was for the "Hadashi de Summer" song from 2016 and don't think any single since then has topped that one. She has two spreads for today, small one with five pics is from the July issue of Sweet. Following them is a rather big set that's from edition #44 of UTB+.
On July 10th four members were at an event for Cup Star noodles, a new brand from the company will be a tie-in with the new single. In attendance was Nanase and have posted some of her pics in two recent solo posts, also there were Asuka and Sayuri. Mai was the fourth member at the event and was just reading in some news that came out today that she'll be absent from four of Nogi's remaining eight concerts on their Summer tour.
Still no word on Mai's graduation, so many fans including me wouldn't be surprised if she announced her departure at the tour's final concert. There's supposed to be some CM's for the soup coming out tomorrow so will try to have them in the next group post. No PV is out for their 21st single "Jikochuu de Ikou!" but after the pics from last week's event check out a radio rip of the tune which should stay up on YT.
