Maki Horikita: "My Little Sweet Pea" movie premiere pics from December 2013

 This is sort of an encore post of one that was done from this film's premiere which took place on December 21, 2013. Many of these pics weren't posted before but the main reason for doing another post on it is that I've just finally viewed this movie today, have had it for a few months now but for some strange reason hadn't viewed it. Certainly wasn't a must watch but it turned out to be an okay film, wasn't enough time tonight to finish writing a review on it so thought I'd give a heads up to the Maki fans out there to expect a few posts on this film in the next day or so.
 Maki didn't look glamorous in the film but thought she looked better than she has compared to her her other movies, seeing as how looked A++ in them it means she looked A+++++ in this film. As mentioned here's some more pics from the premiere, also have a video of it along with the trailer.

Masami Nagasawa: More Cannes Film Festival pics and two new CMs


 .... those above two pics of perfection are actually from the Taiwan Film Festival back in November of 2012. Masami is turning 28 in just a few days so will be having even more stupendous pics of her and quite a few of them will be ones never posted here which is getting harder to find as there's very few things of her not here.
 Mentioned after doing a post of her at the Cannes Film Festival which took place two weeks ago that I'd be back with even more pics from it and do have a few more. Sadly though there weren't as many as I was hoping, think last at last year's festival there were so many more of Masami but guess we'll have to sacrifice quantity for quality as these are certainly hard to top.

 Small post for a change as the only other new thing are two CMs for Kanebo and Lotte, videos are after these pics.

Saki Fukuda: New Instagram pics and a bit more....

 Most posts have been drawing quite a few views, thanks to all who keep viewing them but looks like I'll reverse that trend here with a Saki post, her posts don't draw as nearly enough fans or potential fans. Would love to do more posts on Saki but there really hasn't been too many new things to post about her, however she did another guest spot on a drama last week which is called "Ninjyo". She posted that info on her blog though haven't found the episode yet but that show is on Daily Motion so it should be uploaded soon and then will be back with some screenshots from it.
 Saki is going to be appearing in another play, she's done many of them since 2010, think this may be her tenth one since then. The play is called "A Wanderer's Notebook", looks to be a fairly big production though it won't be starting until October. It's also going to be a long running one as it's going to be staged in most of the major cities until January, here's the poster for it.

 Guess with a play running that long we may not see her in a drama or film this year though she has done at least four guest spots this year on a drama. One thing Saki has at least been doing is updating her Instagram account with pics and here's some from the last few weeks.

 Last thing here as there's not an infinite amount of pics so need to economize on them a bit. Have already done a post with a few of these pics but have found many more of them from a press conference that took place on March 3, 2011 for the 13th 'All-Japan National Girl Contest". Saki just brings adorable to a new level so we really needed more pics from the event and recall her saying she had applied for the contest many years before but wasn't accepted, what were the judges thinking!?!?
