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....

Aqours: The 'Shuka Saito post' #1....

 Did say yesterday that I wasn't going to introduce anyone else new this year which was partially true. Though she's had no solo posts you've seen many pics of Shuka in some other member's posts so you have seen her slightly here before. Am on a mini mission to have at least one post for all of the Aqours gals and I've become such a big fan of the group this year.
 Aqours is the main name of the nine member group though they also often go by the name of 'Love Live! Sunshine'. Think the gals use that more for the animes they do the voices for, it's also the title of one their animes and as you may have guessed Shuka is a voice actress. They're quite popular in Japan and most voice actresses that I've seen also look really darn good too.

 The group has become so much more popular the last two years. Before 2016 you rarely saw them in gravure mags but these days it's quite common for many of the members. Their songs are quite good too and will have a few group posts for them in the future along with some for more members.
 Shuka is 22 and her birthday falls on August 16th, that was the date she released her first photobook. She looks quite a bit like Yuuri from Nogi and to me that's quite a compliment. Have a bit of quite a few things today and there should be enough for another solo post or two. Aqours does have a website though you don't find many pics there. They all have Instagram accounts though and these are some recent pics but Shuka seems to post less than any other member.

 Aqours isn't a cosplay group though on concert they do dress up as the characters from the animes they do the voices for such as some of those pics above. On to some fine looking Shuka mag spreads with this first one being from the September 14th issue of Friday, it has some outtake pics from her first photobook.

 Shame that set above was only four pics but the second pic at the very top is a promo one for the PB. Shuka has a much bigger spread here and was also the cover girl for the February 22nd Young Jump.

 Another Young Jump set and this is from issue #16 for this year.

 Seiyuu Animedia is a voice actor.actress mag and the Aqours members appear in it quite often. This final mag spread is one massive set of pics and Shuka looks very, very fabulous in it. Plus she had another cover and this fine pics are from the May issue.

 As mentioned above Shuka released her first PB on her August 16th birthday. Title for the book is "Barefoot" and on that b-day she held an autograph session for the photobook. Pics for the PB were taken in Okinawa and Shuka looked mighty fine at the event.

 Will end off with an Aqours event that took place on August 31st. On the date Shuka was joined by two other members at the 'Sanrio Expo 2018, there the trio were promoting the "Petit Guru Love Live!" game. All nine of the Aqours members have voices in the game along with some other voice actresses, those nine do so many voices for animes and games. Pics here are from the event which is followed by a video from it.
