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.
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: The 'Mai Shiraishi post' #38....
Wonder if we'll ever get to enjoy a third photobook from Mai? It's been close to two years since "Passport" was released and with it selling over 300,000 copies you'd think a publisher would be clamoring for the chance to put out her next PB. Perhaps it's Mai then you doesn't want one, she has toned down her image a bit in the past two years though her recent spreads have had her starting to reveal a bit more of her again.
Mai's last post had the scans from her 'BLT White Graph' mini PB. There were close to fifty pics and it has been considered a photobook as it was in second place this week's Oricon charts selling 13,390 copies and 56,000 in it's two weeks out.
Didn't think there would be enough new things for another Mai solo post but all of a sudden she's been a lot busier in the past two weeks and have a decent amount of new happenings for today. Though this first set isn't new but from year's past and figured it's that time of season.
Next month will have a Mai post for her July to December Nogi cards. Forget if there was a post for her first six months of the year, if not the will have two posts for her 2018 cards. Have a few for today which are from Halloween, their 'Kaerimichi' single and some for the 'Nogi Koi' app game.
On December 18th Mai along with another Nogi mate were at a press conference for this year's 'Japan Record Awards' show. The ceremony will be taking place on December 30th, last year Nogi won the best single award for their "Influencer" single and once again they're up for the same award with their "Synchronicity" single.
Of course these days all Nogi solo posts need to feature a pairing with....
Have a pair of mag spreads for today and Mai is picking up the pace again recently with her mag appearances. Think she's now an exclusive model with Maquia though she doesn't appear in each monthly issue, she graces the cover of their February edition.
Another 'White' collection of Mai pics. These aren't from BLT but instead the January 14th issue of Friday and these pics were definitely worth the price of admission.
