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.

Marie Iitoyo: Knowing that viewers can't (can) live without her....


 Usually take either the first or last day of a month off, seeing as how things are a bit slow will take that vacation day tomorrow....

.... but not before leaving you with a post you can't live without! Sadly that's a very unlikely scenario as Marie just can't garner too many new fans here, her posts do get a consistent amount of views though none of her posts ever hit the top ten for popularity. Have said a few times in the past which is that Marie will probably always finish in the top five on my yearly faves list though have a feeling she'll never be #1 for that year.
 But also have a feeling that when the next 'All Time Top Twenty Faves' list is done she'll take the top spot! Kind of odd then that Marie has never been number one for a yearly list but she's still #1 to me and she's one of those extremely rare gals when I looked at once fell for immediately. Hmmmm, that all time list got me thinking and perhaps I'd do the next one exactly two years from now, of course that's if I'm still alive and kicking. If it's done in the Spring then could still have the yearly list, think the only new requirement would be that you need to be 24 in age instead of 23.


 The ban on public events has affected Marie more than any other women I post about. For about two years she's appeared at some sort of event, premiere or press conference every three weeks so obviously no pics from them will slow down her posts but it's only been 24 days since her last one. Not that many recent happenings but do have some older pics plus some new ones which total close to 46 pics, speaking of that number....





 Will try to have a solo post for the top gal within two weeks. Marie is a model for about five sites or clothing lines but don't have too many of those pics for today, that's good in a way as it means it may not be much longer to her next post. Just wish there were more pics from the More site.






 But do have many superb Marie pics from the Oggi site, actually there's so many am holding a few back for her next post.















 Have no idea if the situation in Japan is slowing down the filming of dramas, sure most that are currently airing were filmed before the health crisis began. Was wondering because Marie is supposed to be in a prime time drama starting on April 24th. It's be the fourth season of "Kaseifu no Mitazono" and she'll have a large role in the show. Hopefully it'll be subbed as Marie's last three or four haven't been and I really think she's a solid actress. Back on February 23rd did a post that had some pics from an event of Marie promoting her 2020-21 calendar. Have found many other pics from the event which are of course fabulous and the top four are from the calendar.





















 Will end off with some beyond perfect pics that hopefully should grown her fan base. Often start off Marie's posts with a pic or two from her "No Gazpacho" photobook that was released in January 2018. However usually have the same pics from the book in those posts so as a bonus for today have a bunch of pics you've never seen from the PB, sixteen in total but eleven are brand new for here. If your heart isn't beating too far out of control have a short video from her appearance at the February 29th Spring 'Tokyo Girls Collection' show.
