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: 2017 Magazine scans #3
Keya appeared on last New Years "Kouhaku" show which airs on that night or actually it starts in the afternoon as it's about a ten hour show. Most of the year's biggest artists are there and it had to be an unexpected honor for the group as at the time they only had three singles. Do a lot of comparisons with Nogi and that's to be expected as Keya is their first sister group. Nogi has appeared on the show the last two years but they weren't invited until they had released thirteen singles!
Will get back to individual posts very soon but wanted to get as many group spreads or activities out of the way first. The group does surprise me with the amount of mags they appear in and there's also a slew of them for 2016. Yurina is the most popular member which is odd considering she's the youngest one, would have to say she appears in the most mags.
But not by a large margin at all as Neru to me seems to be in almost as many or perhaps even more. Did one post for her mag spreads and have a few more of them in the works. Everything for today are group sets and will be working backwards date wise as there's some newish ones which shouldn't be forgotten about. First off are the trio of Minami, Nanako and Miyu from the May issue of Bomb.
Fivesome here from the April 26th issue of Weekly Shonen. Names aren't listed in English so let's see how well everyone is getting at knowing the members by their faces or Japanese names.
Once again another fivesome and also another Bomb issue which is from February. The
'W-Watanabe' duo is looking particularly out of this world.... as usual.
Last two spreads are both for Keya's third single 'Futari Saison" which was released last November. For 2016 it sold 468,000 copies to rank 11th for best selling singles. Since then it's sold steadily and is about to top the 600 K mark. Set of pics here are from volume six of Brody, one thing I like about the group is their darkness, not that they're evil or anything but they do exude that type of image.
Last spread is another one for the single and it's quite a huge set as there's a total of 25 pics. This set is from the January issue of MdN, lot of pics devoted to the PV's making.
