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.... 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.

Maria Makino: Her searing "Maria 19" photobook scans....


 Whew, that second pic could be my #1 of Maria and that's really saying something!!!! Usually take the last day of the month off and most of that is due to how Blogger's archive works plus it's nice to have an occasional breather so there won't be any on Sunday. But may not have one for tomorrow and for now will play it by ear though would like to do at least one. Am working on two recaps, the first position on the 'Top Twenty Faves of All Time' list and a Nogi photobook plus hopefully another one or two. So if there are zero for tomorrow expect as least five posts for the first day of August.

 When you add up all of the posts for the three '46' groups they must have five or more times as many as the groups from Hello Project. That's a shame as I do like H!P members and their music more but save for Maria it's become so difficult to do posts for a member or group these days. Keep trying to do something but it never works out, a big reason is that those H!P Digital Books that came out every month stopped about a year ago and those books were often the best posts of a month! Morning Musume did have a single back in June but there was so little to post about it, one decent group mag spread but not much else.

 It's even been a bit of a slowish stretch for Maria, she did have a regular post back in June but it's been her only one since April. She is kind of busy as she's now a host once a week on the 'Love It' show but there hasn't been much else to post about her lately. That could be changing for on August 31st Maria will be releasing another photobook but not officially a new one. It's going to be a collection of Maria's last four books plus there will be plenty of outtake pics from the photo shoots along with some new pics, the news just came out so not sure of all of the details.

 I've had this book for such a long time and have been wavering on whether to post it or not? Obviously finally decided to and had added in the occasional pic here and there to her posts. This book came out on Maria's19th birthday back on February 2, 2020 and it was her sixth photobook at the time, she's now up to eight. She is so, so immensely popular here which is the main reason for having this book and know all of her fans will savor every pic. There's 119 pics in all and as a bonus after them is a video from the book's photo shoot. There should be another Maria post next month as I would think there would be some mag spreads and such to promote that photobook collection.
