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.

C-ute: A little of this and that....
Above is a promo video for volume 74 of 'Cute DVD Magazine', it's a semi documentary of the group's final tour plus a few other group happenings. Those videos are usually quite good, have seen at least twenty of them and think all fans would enjoy them plus they're quite long at well over an hour. Also above are two calendars for June, on the 21st Chisato will be celebrating her 23rd birthday.
As any C-ute fan knows their final concert will be taking place on the 12th, in Japan it's now a little after 9:00 am so the final performance will be starting in less than eleven hours. The huge and sad occasion is taking place at the Saitama Super Arena which holds well over 30,000 for concerts.
Many Hello Project groups will also be performing such as Juice=Juice, Morning Musume and Angerme. It's going to be streamed so hopefully that means us fans won't have to wait a few months for the DVD. Actually the DVD will probably be a must watch but would like to see some of the show before it's release.
Those are a few recent pics from the group's Ameba blog. This isn't going to be a huge post but more of a heads up for fans as I do plan on having many C-ute posts coming up even though they'll no longer be together. As a group they haven't been too active as of late though, kind of keeping a low profile before the final concert.
One thing they've been doing though is appearing on many TV shows and will have some posts for them coming up. Sure most of you won't be dying for them but the shows have been quite good, even though they're not subbed the shows are easy to follow. The last two weeks all five members have appeared on the 'Mujack' show which have been quite funny, one of the hosts is the ex-AKB member Minami who happens to be a big C-ute fan.
In that show Saki gets hypnotized which turned out to be quite hilarious. An interesting show which I haven't viewed enough is 'Hello! Pro Station', the last two shows have featured a member as a host. The last show was #222 and Maimi was one of the hosts along with Ayaka from Angerme, the pair seem to be good friends.
The show before that featured Saki and Tomoko from Juice=Juice who may become my fave H!P member. These shows concentrate on Hello Project groups and what's happening with them, plenty of C-ute in these two shows and will have some screenshots coming up soon.
Plenty of H!P cards for the group but there hasn't been as many recently which could be due to the group disbanding. Besides the upcoming group posts will have more solo ones for Airi who as usual has been very busy, she mentioned that she'd be taking a short break from singing but will start on her solo career in 2018.
After these pics check out another promo video for 'C-ute DVD Magazine', it's volume 75 and may be their final one. Would recommend watching it on YT, the site is 'UF Goods Land' and they have plenty of promo videos for all H!P groups.
