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...Keyakizaka46... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... 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.

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.

Keyakizaka46: Neru Nagahama “Kokokara” photobook scans



 With first week sales of 97,660 "Kokokara" is second all time in sales to Mai's "Passport" PB which sold 103,500 in it's first week. Going to be hard to top her overall sales that stand at about 250,000 but should easily beat the sales figures for Asuka's and Nanase's books which are both over 135,000. Bet no one saw those impressive sales coming which should be well over 100,000 now, it's good to see nice things happen to the better people and think Neru is definitely one of them.
 Neru came so close to not being a member of Keya due to her parents as they were hoping she would choose college over an Idol career, looks like the right decision was made. Know it pales a bit in comparison but Rika's first PB has sold extremely well in it's three weeks out with sales getting close to 50,000. With the two books selling so well you'd have to presume that there will be a few more from Keya coming in 2018, there's a couple of members I'd love to see have one.


 This will be the final post of the year and though it'll take a while wouldn't doubt if this ends up being the most viewed post of 2017, hope so as it's such a fabulous set of pics. Neru hails from Nagasaki which is where the pics for the photobook were taken. The jaw-dropping beach pics were taken on the nearby island of Goto.
 Not much more to add and don't know if the stats will back it up but seems Keya had more posts then anyone the second half of the year and that includes Nogi. Besides the impressive sales for this PB the group also has had some tremendous sales for 2017 as four of their singles were in the top eighty while their first album was in the top ten. On to the pics and bet Neru surprised many with how magnificent she looked at the beach, her popularity is so sky high now shouldn't she be the center for Keya's next single?
