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: 2019 Magazine scans #13 and more....
Not that many Nogi fans are also drama fans but am still working on my new blog. Have been transferring some actress, drama and film posts over to it and am about 95% done with that. Figuring that Saturday will be the first day with brand new posts that aren't here, will have one complete drama recap along with a few actress posts(hopefully). But as I mentioned last weekend there will still be as many posts here for Nogi, NMB, SKE and other Idols that I've posted often about, the only difference is that there will be no more posts for dramas or actresses. True there's been a slowdown lately for Idol posts but blame them as besides Nogi there's been virtually zippo to post about recently.
At the top and below is a fave of many here but sadly haven't had a solo post for her in eons. It's Nogi Captain Reika I'm referring to and the pics aren't because she's graduating(yet) but on May 16th she'll be turning 25! That makes her Nogi's seventh oldest member and that's because of graduations as three years ago she was the 11th oldest member.
But there was a Nogi graduation four days ago though there was no big celebration. On Sunday Yuuri had her last group event and she's someone who I really have liked over the years but she hasn't been in the limelight as much as other members, she is a first generation gal. Thought I would do a send off post for her as I didn't expect any new things from her. But.... SURPRISE!!!!.... there won't be any special post yet for her as it was announced a few days ago that Yuuri would be releasing her first photobook on June 20th!
That news came out of nowhere but am quite glad it did as it means we should be seeing her in some mags to promote it and there should be an event for it. Picked a tough time to release the PB though as during that time there are also books from a Keya and NMB member coming out. These are a few promo pics for the book which was shot in Bali.
Speaking of Keya it's nice to see some members don't consider them to be a hated rival....
Oooops, almost forgot but bet most fans didn't. That's for the date of May 29th as Nogi's 23rd single "Sing Out" will be released.
Had promised to have a solo post for Mai but that didn't work out so well, at the moment would place her second on my fave members list. There's always a shortage of mag spreads featuring her but she was recently signed to be an exclusive model for Oggi and have some fabulous new pics from
On to the mag spreads but this first batch isn't one. Can't remember if I posted the spreads from the June issue of Bomb, will go back and check and if not expect them in the next group post. But there were many outtake and behind the scenes pics at the Bomb Twitter site which features the trio of Minami, Miona and Yuki. Hope you like Minami as much as I do these days because she has two more sets and came close to doing another post for her.
Actually not as many mag spreads as I thought, still need to learn to count past ten pics. Shiori is someone we've been seeing a lot of recently, this is the third post in a row she's had a solo spread which is from Weekly Shonen #23 but it's only four pics. Also with four from the mag is the now incomparable Minami, we truly need her to have a PB. After her pics are three new outtake ones from her UTB #278 photo shoot, had that spread in her solo post.
To end off have one more Minami spread, looking at the above pic while typing this and gaping at that more than at what I'm writing, whew! She's been the cover girl for so many mags recently and she has the honor again for the May issue of BLT Graph. Not positive but think she'll be at Sunday's 'Girls Awards' show, know a few other members will be in attendance.
