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....

Sayaka Yamamoto: Another 'mammoth' post....



 Know we all enjoy Sayaka's gravure pics immensely though she hasn't done one of those kinds of spreads for well over a year. Good for her too as to me she actually may look even better with her more mature type of style. It's been about two months since Sayaka graduated from NMB and haven't heard much of what she'll be doing in the future. Would presume she'll be one of the few Idols who will be continuing on with a musical career.
 Sayaka is a musician and has released two albums already which have been somewhat successful. She's also done a few tours so bet she's taking a breather first before beginning again on her music career, she was with NMB for ten years. Her final official concert with the group was on October 27th and think there will be a photobook coming out for it though it wasn't her last show with them.


 The last Sayaka post was certainly a massive one, perhaps too big as I used all her pics for this year. But think there's a good amount of pics for this post and hoping that it won't be a long gap until her next one. Had a slew of NMB cards in that last post though did miss a tiny few of them.







 Sayaka's actual end date with NMB wasn't on October 27th but instead on November 4th. On that date she performed her final show with the group at the NMB Theater in Osaka which is the hometown of NMB. Do wonder about the future of NMB, they do have many popular members though none are the stars that Sayaka is and have a feeling their dwindling sales may dwindle much lower. Hope not as the rest of the gals are quite likable and thought their past three singles were their best in at least three years. These pics are from that final theater performance.


















 On that November 4th date there was also an interview that came out for Modelpress.








 Sayaka has certainly made her fair share of J-Pop friends over the years, top pic is the best....






 Last NMB post had many Sayaka mag spreads which were all with other members of the group. For this post have only her recent solo mag spreads and all of them are new for here. And as mentioned all are so much more conservative than the ones from years past though all rate an A+. First set is from volume seven of Platinum Flash that has pics from the October 27th concert.







 This set is from the October 10th edition of Kansai Walker, not sure if it's a spin off from the Tokyo Walker Plus mag.











 This is the biggest Sayaka spread for today which is from the October 31st Weekly Shonen.
















 Another cover issue which is from the December edition of Mina.









 Final Sayaka spread for today is another cover issue for her that's from the October 29th Young Magazine. Her graduation concert is coming out on DVD January 1st, good way to start off the year and there's a clip from the upcoming video after the pics.
