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...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... 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!
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
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.

This may be Mayu's third post in less than a month, can't recall so many in such a short amount of time like that. May even have another one this weekend as I'm about to start on her current drama "Uchi no Otto was Shigoto ga Dekinai" which started on July 8th. It's getting subbed but just the first episode has been done, once the second show has been subbed will be starting on the recaps. Mayu to me is one of the best actresses around and the top one less than 25 years old as she's now twenty two.
A rare thing is to find mag spreads for Mayu, she does appear in a fair amount but the sets are never large enough. Have two spreads for today but they sadly only total five pics, first two are from the September edition of Diamond Zai while the rest are from the August 8th issue of Prime.
Mayu is doing the voice of Cruise Ramirez in the new "Cars/Crossroad" film. Last post had over twenty interview pics she did for the movie, here's three more from the Line Blog site.
The film opened on July 15th and has done very well at the box office. It's first two days it took in over 300 million yen, the competition is much tougher in Japan due to so many foreign movies. On July 25th there was a thank you celebration for the film at the Toho Cinemas in Nihonbashi.
Even dressed in a yukata Mayu to me easily beats 98+% of the gals out there, she's truly one underrated beauty. Plenty of stupendous pics from the event with most of the main cast in attendance including some eleven year old pro driver(!!) named Juju. After the pics check out a video of the event.
Can't say that I'm fan yet of the new single but am one for these new uniforms which look mighty superb. Though not the same they remind me a bit of some of their older uniforms which were often colorful such as "Natsu no Free and Easy" and "Girls Rule".
This event took place on July 25th at the Katayanagi Arena in Tokyo. There's a national competition each year from all of the prefectures, think it's for finding out who the smartest students and schools are. This event was a preliminary one for the Kanto region and close to 3,600 students attended the event, at it they were allowed to use Smartphones which doesn't seem right.
Nogi was appointed semi-ambassadors of the competition, they'll also be attending other events like this one across the country and think the finals will be broadcast live on September 1st. At the event Nogi performed four older songs such as "Oide Shampoo" and "Hadashi de Summer". However they didn't do the new single as I noticed the two centers Momoko and Yuuki weren't in attendance.
Wonder how the members would do in a competition like this one, perhaps that'd be a good idea for a 'Bingo!' or 'Construction' show. As far as members go may place my $$ on Chiharu and Misa to be the smartest. Plenty of fine looking pics here from the event though as usual there's no video for it. However many members have been hosting 'Showroom' recently and if you go to YT you'll find plenty of new episodes there.
