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.

Few tidbits....
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.

Mio Imada: Her intro post #1....



 Have introduced a few newbies lately which I said most should really enjoy, Mio here is a gal I know everyone should really get into. Have noticed her for the past year or so but didn't pay enough attention to her which is definitely my fault but on the plus side that means there's plenty of older things to post about her. Perhaps not in too many of today's pics but to me Mio really reminds me of Kasumi when she was 21 or so.



 Mio is an actress and haven't introduced enough of them the past few months, she's also a very popular model as she's an exclusive model for a couple of magazines. One new mag is ViVi who she hooked up with in July, few recent pics from their website.






 Another mag she's an exclusive model for is Ray, once again pics from a website.






 Mio will be turning 22 next March 5th, so many of my faves were born under the Pisces sign and it just occurred to me I forgot to do an Astrology post this month. Mio hails from Fukuoka, her height is a bit short for an actress/model as it's just 157 cm, most seem to be 163 and over. As mentioned she's a model for two mags and she represented them at the September 1st 'Tokyo Girls Collection' show which was held in Saitama, she's also a model for Non-no.









 Mio isn't like a lot of young actresses and models as she doesn't post many pics on her blog or Instagram site. Have a few here and know most know whose with her in the first pic.






 "Suits" is Mio's current drama which looks to be an okay show, these days I prefer waiting until a series is finished before it gets viewed. Her previous drama which began in April was titled "Boys Over Flowers 2", it's a remake of the drama that aired over a decade ago and was a very popular manga which I did read many volumes of and it's worth checking out. Have some interview pics she did for the show, first seven are from Hustle Press while the next five are from the TV Life site. The final thirteen pics are from a promo event for the drama one week before it began.
























 You may have noticed in one blog pic that Mio was sitting at a table with many books in front of her. That's because she was signing them for an event that will be held this weekend as her first PB "Life Power" was released today. Will have a post for the event along with hopefully some new spreads promoting the photobook. This first set does have some outtake pics from the PB, it's a brand new spread from the November 12th issue of WPB.















 Mio does appear in many issues of WPB, have another spread from them here which is from their October 1st edition that features more outtakes from her first book.











 Mio seemed to take a break during the Summer as she had no mag spreads nor was at any events during the season. Have a pair of older sets then from earlier this year with this first one being from the May 24th Young Jump and once again she graced the cover.










 Final spread for today is the smallest at four pages and is from the June 15th issue of Friday. After the pics is a video of her new CM for Diya which has a long behind the scenes segment.
