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.

Tomi: A few recent smatterings....

 Keep wanting to add an E at the end of her name but don't think she quite has what is needed to play the evil Tomie! Was just thinking about the time difference, I'm in EDT which means this post will be published about 8:30 pm on Sunday. But if you're in Japan it'll be 9:30 am on Monday and thought often what you're waking up to are some breathtaking pics! That's what's in store for today and bet they'll wake you better than the strongest cup of Java.
 For that first preliminary list for this year's top twenty faves had briefly thought about Tomi and then promptly forgot all about her. This is her fifth post for this year so there's little doubt she'll hit the magic number of six to qualify for the list. Not sure if Tomi would make the top twenty though, do like quite a bit but wish she'd do a few more activities other than spreads but then again so many are kind of mind boggling. This is already her 12th post in sixteen months though most are smaller than others, for today have 35 or so new pics and thought why hold on to them?

 Tomi's first two posts were her most viewed by far, since then her posts only draw a so-so amount of views and wonder why? Oh well, as I was mentioning the other day the gals I think that will be popular aren't and the ones I think will just draw a fair total of new fans end up becoming superstars here(!), I give up trying to make heads or tails of things. On to some new pics and as I said there's about 35 for today, with this slowdown there's no sense holding on to things like I used to do. This small batch is from the ExWeb site and a June 8th interview, if you want to read about her here's the link to the interview: ExWeb

 Few recent Instagram pics, few of them are from Tomi's Weekly Shonen photo shoot and have that set of pics at the bottom.

 Back in February Tomi released her first photobook. First week out it made the top ten for sales as it sold about 2,500 copies, bet the total is now over 5,000. Of course that's not in the league of Nogi's sales but how many others sell as many books as they do?

 Perhaps the next Tomi post won't be too far in the future as she's scheduled to have a large spread in the August issue of BLT. Here's a few dazzling promo and behind the scenes pics for it.

 Final thing for today is this superb set from the July 9th edition of Weekly Shonen, second time she's been their cover girl. Tomi has done about forty magnificent spreads yet there's never been a video of even one photo shoot, that's certainly very mysterious. So after the pics have a short promo video for her first photobook.
