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.

Sayumi Michishige: A real blast from the past with many new happenings....
'A blast from the past' is certainly an apt description for Sayumi as she's finally starting to become a bit more active. Have done quite a few posts for her but never for new activities and hoping this may be the first of two or three for her. Have posted most of her photobooks and H!P Digital Book collections but can't recall ever doing a post like this one before for Sayumi. Don't know why either as she was such a busy member of Morning Musume until her November 2014 graduation. Video at the top is highly recommended which is for the photo shoot for Sayumi's "Your Love" PB.
Sayumi barely missed making my 'Top Twenty of all Time' list. Odds are close to 100% she would have if it wasn't for her extended hiatus as she could my #1 Morning Musume of all time though do like other Hello Project members more. After Sayumi's graduation she took 22 months off(!) which was from November 2014 to September 2016. She's slowly getting back into the swing of things but the past few months she's been as busy as ever and is still affiliated with Hello Project.
Hopefully there can be a few posts for newer activities but if not still have plenty of older things to get to. Have only done one or two mag spread posts so there's definitely many out there to get to. Did one post for Sayumi's 2014 H!P cards and said I would do a few more posts like that which never happened. Will have some cards in the mag spread posts and these are a few from 2013.
In 2017 and 2018 Sayumi released two mini albums titled "SayumingLandoll: Saisei" and "SayumingLandoll: Shukumei". Both weren't available in stores as you could only purchase it at the Cotton Club or through the H!P site which meant neither were big sellers. She's performing two upcoming solo concerts and think it'd be wise if she released a regular single and/or album.
Sayumi is fairly active on her Ameba blog along with her Instagram site. These are recent pics from them, sure you know who the gal with her is and the pair were celebrating the 15 year mark of when both joined MM.
On July 13th Sayumi released her twelfth photobook and all eleven before are simply superb. Title of the PB is "Dream" which many do about her and these are from a Asahi interview for the book.
One tremendous spread promoting the PB which is from the July 24th issue of Flash.
The July 13th release date of the PB was also Sayumi's 29th birthday(!), she still looks at least five years younger and also still steaming hot. On July 14th there was a fan greeting event for the book at Book Fast in Shinjuku, pics are from the event and following them is a video of it. Noticed it didn't make Oricon's top ten for sales which may be the result of taking such a long break but H!P gals sell so many books and singles at their events/concerts which aren't included in Oricon's sales.
