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.

Keyakizaka46: The 'Neru Nagahama post' #9....
So much more difficult to do solo posts for Keya members versus Nogi. They appear in just as many mag spreads but the Keya gals don't have nearly as many activities outside of the group such as appearing at events or releasing photobooks though they do have more radio shows.
Speaking of photobooks Neru's first one that came out last December is approaching 200,000 copies sold which must shock everyone in the J-Pop world. Actually the way she looked shocked me even more as to me it was the #1 PB of the year and what a year it was for books. Three members from Keya have a book now and wonder who the fourth gal to have one will be? My choice would be a good mate of Neru's but not so sure of that now....
Not a massive post like the one yesterday for a Nogi member but do have many A+ new pics. Been a bit down on the Idol world lately, seems like these days Idols come and go so quickly plus they seem to be dime a dozen. Been reading a lot about how so many members in the groups are at odds with each other and especially within the '48' groups plus there's been so many key graduations as of late with many more to come.
Neru is kind of a different breed of Idol as she doesn't act like a huge star and wish there were many more like her as she's such a breath of fresh air. Though she didn't get it but thought Neru earned the right to be the center of Keya's upcoming single as she may be the group's most popular member these days. One Idol thing she doesn't do a lot of is post a huge amount of pics on her blog or Instagram page, these are really the only current ones.
Posted that bottom one about a year ago, she still hasn't been able to snare that straw? Neru is now the host of a short feature that airs daily in NHK called 'Ne Ne Nichi Online', it's a show that looks at the mysteries of the world and why they're that way. It's also a regular hour show that broadcasts twice a month with the next one airing on Saturday.
Have never seen Neru at one of the fashion shows that her other Keya buddies have attended. Perhaps that'll be changing in September when the next show will take place as Neru is now an exclusive model for the Bis magazine. They have a ton of pics at their site as she also does a daily makeup feature for the mag.
Did a post about two weeks ago as Keya and Nogi attended their first promo event together which was for GMO and a new app they have for their Smartphone games. Have posted many pics from the event but do have some new ones mixed in these older ones from the event.
There's been so few Keya posts the past few months don't think I posted these yet, even if they were an encore viewing may be needed. Neru graces the cover of so many mags, more than any member it seems and these ultra terrific pics are from the June 7th issue of Young Jump.
Neru's PB had quite a few swimsuit pics and she looked so jaw-dropping in those pics. But since that book came out she's gone back to having conservative spreads which is oki doki to me as she looks super duper in the sets. Final thing today is a brand new spread from the August 20th edition of Big Comic Spirits. Quite often they have a video for the cover girl but as of now there is none but after the pics you can view a short cut from the 'Ne Ne Nichi Online' show.
