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... Bae Suzy... 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.
June 11th.... the new blog is going well but it is much more work so unsure if I want to keep two going. For now will but am going to bring some of those actress posts over here as I know many have missed out on some faves. Actually just may end up transferring all of them over as I'm seriously leaning to going back to one blog, tried having others at one in the past which also proved to take up a lot more time than I expected.

Nogizaka46: 2018 Magazine scans #13....
Another smallish post but there are thirty new pics so didn't make sense holding on to them. In 2017 there were so many photobooks but can't say that about 2018. Think there's been four of them with Nanase's third PB being the best of the bunch. Wonder then when we'll start seeing members have their second PB, Asuka turned twenty a few days ago and thought after the tremendous sales of her first PB she'd have another which sadly hasn't been the case.
Mai will be turning 26 in a week, plan on having a post that day for her but there hasn't been many new things from her recently or since she 'retired' from two mags but sure I'll be able to create a halfway decent post.
Good and bad news for the group's 21st single "Jikochuu de Ikou". The good news is that it's been Nogi's second biggest seller for a single's first week out, if they can sell 28,000+ copies tomorrow it'll crack a million in sales which is definitely impressive. However it's sold about 140,000 copies less than the "Synchronicity" single and with Keya's new single coming out this week there's no chance of setting a new record. It's only the second time a Nogi single has sold less than the previous one, for some strange reason that happened to the "Natsu no Free and Easy" single which is one of my faves.
Nogi's blog has changed a bit and it's harder to get the pics but will have some for the group's next post. Miona continues to be their best blogger, not many pics from it today but do have some ultra fabulous ones from the ar magazine site and she's an exclusive model for them. The bottom three are blog pics and doesn't she look absolutely amazing!!!!
Just two new mag spreads and would have thought there would have been more considering the new single came out five days ago. Both sets are A+ collections though and this first one is from the September edition of BLT. It features the trio of Misa and I can't think of any more adjectives to describe her sultriness. With her Manatsu and still have a feeling she may be Nogi's next graduate. The bonus is that the third gal is Yuuri and to me she's the group's most underrated beauty.
Five members are in this next set from the September issue of EX-Taishu. Once again Misa is in the spread and don't we need another PB from her? Also in the set is Hina and to me her looks have improved more than any other member the past year or so.
