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...Risa Watanabe... 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....
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, most 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.

Ikumi Hisamatsu: 2018 Magazine scans #3 and much more....



 Been doing a bit thinking on the subject and will be doing a top twenty faves list this year. Will be having a much different format though to save time as those posts are usually so time consuming it's usually the only post that's done for a day. There will be a preliminary post for it in 2-3 days, will let you know all of the details and need to start soon as it is getting late in the year.
 Can't recall if Ikumi has made a list, think she may have finished in the teens two years ago but just can't remember everyone who made the list. She'll make it this year easily, have always liked Ikumi immensely but even more so this year. She's like many of the gravure models who I've posted about the last few years as she's really expanded her activities and can now also be considered an actress.


 Her close mates also have expanded their careers the last year and they don't need an introduction as Ikumi's friends are quite popular here. Her current drama is titled "Midnight No Good Love Picture Book" which airs on both ABC-TV and Asahi. It began on October 7th but it may be over by now as it was just a mini drama. On October 21st the most unbeatable trio we've ever seen in a drama were at a 'Wired Tokyo 1999' event which was for women only. It took place at the Tsutaya store in Shinjuku and they were also doing some early promoting of the series coming out on DVD.
















  Ikumi has had five gravure DVD's to date, have seen one which was fairly good though it's hard to sit through a 97 minute video. Her sixth DVD will be coming out on November 23rd and there should be some mag spreads promoting it plus there will be an event for it. Top pic is the cover while the other is an early promo one for it.



 Ikumi doesn't have a blog these days but used to have a Line one. She does have an Instagram account which she needs to update more often, these were from an event that happened last week.





 Ikumi's third photobook came out on October 27th which is titled "LA". The name is a bit of a spin from her first PB which was called "LA IKU", pics for both books were taken in the LA area. Here's the cover for the book along with a few pics from it.






 Wow, some ultra impressive pics above and will have the pics form the book coming up but not too soon as I usually wait until at least a month has passed before posting PB scans. There were two events held for the book which came out on October 27th, these are from two days later and the event was held at the Book 1st store in Shinjuku.











 Just two Ikumi mag spreads for today but both deserve a grade of an A++++ plus there should be some new ones coming up for her PB. Both these sets feature outtake pics from her new PB and this first set is from WPB #43 which is just way too small.





 This second spread is a bit bigger and Ikumi graces the cover of the November 19th edition of Young Jump. Following the pics is a short video of the photo shoot which you need to view....
