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.

Nogizaka46: 2018 Magazine scans #21....



 Just remembered it less than a minute ago but Hinako is releasing her first photobook on December 27th, still wish it came out now to take advantage of Christmas sales. My first top ten Nogi fave members list she was in the fourth position as I really, really like her. However the past year or so have been so quiet for Hinako, first she took a leave because of her health and then wasn't selected as a Senbatsu member for the past few singles.
 Least she's still with the group, no spreads featuring her today but bet there will be some upcoming ones for her PB. One person we won't be talking about too much in the future is Yumi who had her graduation concert on December 4th at the Budokan arena. She was a first generation member and so many of them are leaving or at least too many of the more popular ones though at least it appears Mai and Erika will be around for a while.








 Will admit Yumi wasn't a member who I paid a lot of attention to, wasn't that I didn't like her but there were just so many others who I preferred. She has the first set which is a real mini one from the November 15th issue of Tokyo Walker Plus. Pics at the top are from that graduation concert.




 Another first generation member who will be departing is Hina Kawago and that's a name who has been mentioned very rarely here. She's a first generation member too but has been stuck in the Undergirls unit almost her entire time as a Nogi member and she rarely has appeared in magazines. She does have a small solo set for her graduation which is from the January edition of Bubka.









 Also in that issue of Bubka was Asuka who is coming so close to being Nogi's most popular member, she's appeared in more mags than anyone else these past two years and isn't it time for her second photobook? Think we all say yes as she looks so much better at twenty then she did at eighteen which was her age for her first PB.













 This is not one of Nogi's biggest posts but did promise yesterday that I would have one for today. Then again my standards are too high as there's probably over forty new pics. Up next is Nogi's other Hina who really looks so good these days but like too many Undergirls doesn't get enough of a push. This set is from the December 18th issue of Flash.







 Should have saved these pics which are also from the same Flash edition but just may post them again. This final set features Sayuri who I have liked quite a bit though have never done a solo post for her. However the odds are good she'll have her first one within the week as she's releasing her first photobook in two days and there should be an event for it. These pics are outtakes from the PB and it appears she's got some surprises for us....
