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... Rika Izumi... Nogizaka46!....Marie Iitoyo.... 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.

One tidbit....
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.

Ayame Gouriki: Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou episode 2 screenshots

 An okay episode but to be totally honest bit of a letdown after the first show, realize Shioriko(Ayame) isn't going to be solving murder, bank robberies or serious crimes in this drama which is fine, kind of liked the low key mysteries she and her two cohorts were or appear as though they were going to solve but really hoping the cases will be a bit interesting, episode one's was but this last show it wasn't too interesting at all, started off as though it may have been one but ended up being a rather boring one.

 Story this time around revolved around Shioriko's friend Shida who also owned a bookstore and had lived in the back of her store for some time now. Shida had a book stolen from him or was it perhaps an accident, one day a teenage female HS student knocked over his bike which he had some books stored on it, she ended up taking one of them but the question was why and was it on purpose? The book in question was not an expensive one and was easy enough to find but had much sentimental value to Shida but through Shioriko's cunning ways she was able to deduce much of what happened and why the girl took the book. Seems as though the girl was a love struck teen who needed the red ribbon attached to the book to wrap a present for a boy who eventually turned her down quite coldly, story at this point really went downhill as they had figured out halfway through the show what happened but this episode for the second half was pretty much of a sappy story and really uninteresting, couldn't wait for it to be over. Still was watchable but if you've seen the first episode then you'd see too how much this show pales in comparison, hopefully it was just a one time deal, hard for any series to every episode a real winner so this drama has plenty of time to get back on track, just need the stories to be a bit more interesting. Have some screenshots here of Ayame from this episode, she was fine but then again she always is, really can never remember doing anything but a superb job in all her dramas.

Manami Higa: Hancho drama episode 3 screenshots

 Another week and another fine episode of Hancho but as I've mentioned this series hasn't been subbed and odds are it's not so really can't give an accurate review of it then so I won't but it does appear to be better than the last few seasons and of course Manami as Saori Yuki looks simply stunning in the show, don't know how she does it but seems to get more attractive by the day, here's some screenshots of her from this episode to back that statement up!!!!
