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...Rena Takeda... Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Risa Watanabe.... 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, all 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.
June 11th.... the new blog is going well but it is much more work so unsure if I want to keep two going. For now will but am going to bring some of those actress posts over here as I know many have missed out on some faves. Actually just may end up transferring all of them over as I'm seriously leaning to going back to one blog, tried having others at one in the past which also proved to take up a lot more time than I expected.

Nogizaka46: A little bit of this and that for 2019 #9....
Bit of a small post but it's been four days since the last Nogi one and didn't want viewers to go into any kind of withdrawal. Starting off with Nanami again and there's a good reason for that. Her second photobook which came out on February 20, 2017 has done something very unlikely. Last week it was the sixth best seller(!), why would something like that happen? It sold 2,454 copies to push the overall total to about 105,000 copies sold. Every now and again there's been rumors about Nanami returning to the entertainment industry, wonder if that was the reason for the book's resurgence?
The "Kakgurui" movie had it's premiere yesterday, Sayuri is in it along with appearing in the second season but wasn't at the premiere for some unknown reason. However she will be the cover gal of a mag coming out next week and also has some new pics at the CanCam site.
But Nogi was represented at the movie's premiere by the graduate Marika. She was a member who I really liked a lot, she left Nogi at the end of 2017. Will be doing another post for the film and will have many pics of her in it. If you ask me she's really looking super duper these days.
Title of Nogi's fourth album is 'Ima ga Omoide ni Naru Made". First weeks sales set a record with 433,000+ copies sold and easily topped the charts. In it's second week it dropped to the fourth position with sales close to 37,000 which makes the two week total 470,000 copies sold, should set another record for total sales. Have been having member pics from the album and today have five gals. Their names are in the pics and today's feature all Undergirls.
If you need a desktop calendar for May may I suggest this one which features Sayuri.
Last magazine post had a huge spread from Young Magazine #22 though forgot to have these four pages. Hinako is one of the quartet and she's been in so many mags recently.
There's just one new regular spread for today though it is quite large and there are two members. Bet for 2019 Yuki has appeared in more mags than any other members, she has the first set and is also the cover girl for the June edition of Entame.
Team captain Reika was someone who we didn't see have a solo spread for such a long time. But she's had two this past month with this set also being from the same Entame issue and will say this is best set in a few years as she really looks oki doki.
