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!

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.

Nogizaka46: 2017 Magazine scans #64 and more....



 Sayuri I. has been a member who I've liked over the years yet after all my promises she's still never had a solo post. Compared to so many other members there's really not all that much to post about her even though she is a busy gal, seems most of her activities are outside of Nogi. Brought her name up as Sayuri just celebrated her 23rd b-day on the 14th, lot of mag pics today but zero feature her.



 This is the first group post for mag spreads since November 9th and there's never been such a huge gap like that before. Have been including the spreads in solo member posts but it seems that the amount of spreads decreased quite a bit from 2016 when there were eighty of these posts. As far as I know there's no X-Mas concert(s) this year and can't give a reason why that would be. Hope I'm wrong with that info but don't think so as I thought it was a new tradition for the group having at least holiday concert.... least some elves may appear at your door with some gifts....









 Will have the scans for Sayuri M's photobook coming up later on this week and while not as scorching as the other member's books it is kind of a fun set of pics. That PB came out on the 14th, next Nogi photobook will be released on February 20th which will be for Marika. That's the date of her 22nd b-day and also may be the official date of her graduating. February 20th then will not be a good date for Nogi fans to recall with joy as that was also another departure day....




 Will be working on a new Nanase solo post as it's been a while since there was one. Will have more news on it then but she'll have the lead role in a drama starting in January which is based on the 'Video Girl Ai' manga which I read most of the volumes and it seems like a role that would suit her.



 On to the mag spreads and while there aren't too many new ones they do total up to be over forty pics. Have a pair of WPB sets and issues for 2018 are already coming out. Nogi has the cover of both editions and this first one is from issue #1.









 Slightly bigger spread for issue #2-3 and once again they grace the cover.
















 All the sets look good but the one problem is none of them feature Misa....





 Final set has the duo of Asuka and Erika who should appear together more often as they look mighty fine in the January 6th edition of Young Magazine, few other members after their pics.
