Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Jin Se-Yeon.... 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....

Ruka Matsuda: Her intro post #2.... plus happy 23rd birthday!!!!



 Lot of viewers seem to be into Ruka or were perhaps curious about her as her first intro post has been among the most viewed ones from the past ten days. I really like her down to earth looks, she seems much more normal than all of the Idols and gravure models I post about. Plus as mentioned today is Ruka's 23rd birthday, a huge fave of mine always celebrates turning a day older on the 30th and will have a post for her before the week is up.



 As you may have noticed from all of the posts have finished the "Kakegurui" drama which was an enjoyable watch. Just wish Ruka's role as Itsuki was a bit bigger, she was the main attraction of the third episode though we only saw her in a few other shows. She will be in the movie that's coming out in January plus I think she'll be in the show's second season.






 Ruka's main claim to fame may be appearing in four 'Kamen Rider' movies along with being in the 'KR EX-Aid' 2016-17 drama. The fourth film was titled "Kamen Rider Heisei Generations Final" which may be the last of the series. Have some pics here from two events for the film, the first seven are from an October 2017 special screening of the movie. The rest are from two premieres that took place on December 9th for the film. I've always liked those series so will be checking her show out, in it Ruka played the role of Nurse Asuna/Poppy.















 Ruka has appeared in many dramas over the past three years but sadly only "Kakegurui" and the 'Kamen Rider' shows have been subbed. These pics here are from an interview Ruka did in July with the Social Trend site and it was for her "Human Kowa" web drama that began on July 27th, she's been in four dramas this year.












 Ruka has done a pair of huge spreads for the Soccer King website, these fine pics here came out in July 2017 and will have the other set in her next post.




















 Need Ruka to start appearing in more mags as I only have three mini sets after these two bigger ones for today. This first A+ spread is from the April 13, 2017 issue of Young Jump.









 This final spread is also from Young Jump and their September 7, 2017 and Ruka also once again graces the cover.
