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... Kyoko Saito... Yui Kobayashi....Nana Owada.... Nene Shida.... 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!

Mentioned the lineup in the last mag spread post, said at the time there were three new Undergirls who made the jump to the ranks of being a Senbatsu member. Those three are in the upper right so at the time missed Ranze who is in the back row third from left. She has quite a few fans who were pulling for her to be on the new single so they were rewarded, still no other details yet on it.
Asuka had her first photobook come out last week, Mai has her second one coming out next Monday and Nanami has her graduation PB coming out on February 20th. But it was just announced a few days ago there's a fourth member that will be releasing a book and that's Manatsu. It's coming out on February 28th and there's no title for it yet. Kind of surprised me she has a PB coming out over a few other members but by the looks of this promo pic perhaps it was the right choice.
Nogi mag spreads seem to be getting bigger by the month, this Bubka set has 32 pics and there were 46 of them in the March issue of UTB. Don't know much about the third generation members but you will get to meet a few of them in these sets. They're paired with some of the popular members such as Yuki Yoda shares this huge set with Nanase.
Smaller sets with the newbies paired up with the older members, no need to tell you their names as they're on the pics.
There were two solo spreads in this issue and the first one here features Sayuri who I haven't seen in a solo spread for eons it seems.
Naturally the other one is of Asuka who has done so many spreads recently due to her first photobook coming out last week. Know the book sold like hotcakes but the official numbers don't come out for two days and will let you know what they were.
Main reason we probably haven't seen much of Kasumi lately is because she's been busy filming, There's a two part movie coming out called "March Comes in Like a Lion", first part comes out on March 18th while the second will be released on April 22nd. Her 24th birthday takes place on February 13th and hopefully there will be more new things for a few posts for that date.
Kasumi also has two films coming out in the Fall but before that she has the lead in the next NHK asadora which starts on April 3rd and is titled "Hiyokko". On January 30th there was a press conference where they announced the whole cast.
Have a few new mag spreads though none are huge and sadly much more conservative than her older ones. First off is this set from the January 5th edition of Shukan Bunshun.
That above is the biggest spread, these are from WPB #5.
Another small set which is the final one from the February 14th issue of Flash. After them have a short CM for Menicon which came out last month.
