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.

Nogizaka46: 2018 Magazine scans #11....
No extras for today as this was a spur of the moment post as I figured after two drama recaps most viewers needed an Idol post and especially one for Nogi. But do have five biggish spreads for today and with the new single coming out in six days would imagine there should be many more spreads on the horizon.
Above is the lineup for the "Barrette" single from November 2013. It's not my fave Nogi song but it's my fave A-side and the only one featuring Miona as the center, don't we all miss the gal sitting to her left!?!? Here's the lineup for the upcoming "Jikochuu de Ikou!" single as they've gone from seventeen Senbatsu members to twenty one.
These days I rarely post spreads featuring the third generation members, not that I dislike all of them but feel as though they took too many promotions away from some deserving Undergirls. There are a few who I do like so will start posting some of their sets as I'm sure there are probably some fans out there. These first two feature members who have the cover for Weekly Shonen and Mizuki has this first one from their May 23rd edition, older set but a mighty fine looking one.
Think Minami may be my fave Japanese name, she's the tallest Nogi member at 170 cm and this Weekly Shonen spread is from their August 9th issue.
Ayane is one of the more interesting Nogi members and I'm glad she's finally a Senbatsu member for the next single, Miria also merited a promotion. For so long she was the group's shyest member but she has slowly come out of her cocoon, think hosting her own radio show has helped her. Digi Station is a website mag that features women who wear glasses and these are from June.
Should have held on to these for a solo post as Asuka is celebrating her 20th birthday in ten days but she appears in so many mags sure there will be some new sets in this next week or so. This fine set is from volume 31 of BLT Graph.
Ranze has the final set which is from the same issue of BLT Graph. She was a Senbatsu member for a single or two and can't understand why she got demoted as she seems to be one of Nogi's more popular members. Talked at the top how "Barrette" is my fave Nogi single and you can view it after the pics, it's from the group's second Birthday Concert.
