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... Yuki Yoda... Hinatazaka46!....Marie Iitoyo.... 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!

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.

Rika Izumi: Few recent tidbits....


 This is a very rare occurrence which is publishing a post(s) right after the stroke of midnight which I think has only been done once before. Just happened to be the way the calendar fell so hadn't done a post since Sunday morning and didn't want to hold on to these two posts for another day. No recent 'list posts' but will have one at the end of the month for which posts have been the most popular ones for the first half of the year. Will do one other too but not sure what kind of post it will be, perhaps a 'Thank You' one for all of you viewers as May set a new record for most views in a month! The main list coming up will be the countdown for my 'All Time Top Twenty Faves' which will start in exactly two months. May sound odd but still don't have twenty women for the list! To me it's the best of the best, of course I have many faves but this list will be of my really massive faves so want to make sure only the very elite will be on it, should start making these lists sixteen positions.

 Without a doubt Risa will make it and for the most part know who will be in the top ten. But what their positions will be should be a mystery even for me up until the very end. Rika will definitely be in the top ten but where I just don't know yet but it should be anywhere from third to seventh, the top ten to me has such a unbeatable group of women. So look for that right after August 1st, will do an intro post or two for it sometime in July.

 And of course there will be the yearly fave's list and for the first time think I'll just have it contain sixteen. To my surprise this is just Rika's sixth post off the year and that's the number needed to qualify. This will be her sixth consecutive year to be on the list and no one tops Rika's consistency as she's been in the top six the previous five years but think it'll be a bit tougher for her to keep that streak alive but there still are six months to go before the countdown begins.

 Least these posts are starting to come quicker as this is Risa's third in seven weeks, only one other huge fave has more posts than her in the last five years. Let's get right to action with these new fabulous modeling pics for the Apuweiser Summer collection.

 More Summer collection pics which are from Stola, to me Rika's modeling pics for them are her best. She's currently in the drama "Shoujiki Fudoussan" which I've been recapping and will have the final five shows after it ends it's run which is next Tuesday. Her role isn't a large one but she will be in another drama starting soon where she has the lead female role.

 Mini spread here from the July issue of Maquia, of course Rika looks so super duper but wish on occasion she'd 'vamp it up' like she once did....

 Rika has been an Oggi model for over three years now but there hasn't been too many recent pics at their site. But do have a pair of spreads with this first spread being from their June issue, in her last post just had half the spread so these are the missing pics.

 This set here is from Oggi's July edition, perhaps I should have held on to it for a future post.

 Have always said that no woman outshines Rika at events. From the years 2017-19 she would appear at ten a year but she's really slowed down on them as this is just her second for 2022. Least the wait was worth it as Rika looked so dazzling and the event was to promote her new mini drama "Me no Kabe" which is a five episode series and begins on June 19th. As mentioned she has the lead female role in the show which looks to be an interesting series. Hopefully it'll be subbed and if it is will recap the drama. This event took place on May 30th and we need to see her at more of them, the rest of the cast is a strong one. Can't believe there's no videos of the event nor has she had any other new ones the last few months. So after the pics is a short segment from the superb "Shoujiki Fudousan" drama and its really hard to top that pairing!!!! 

EDIT: Actually embedding a video from the site is not allowed so instead have the link to it here which was quite a funny scene: "Shoujiki Fudousan" segment
