scrolling pics thingy!)

i added/changed some things. =)
i hope every1 will check out GREENPEACE's website
and see how u can help save our planet!!!
if u don't feel like looking at the site now, then pls still sign up for their newsletter, that way you can read it later when u check your email and remember 2 come back 2 their site later! THANKS IN ADVANCE! <3 [i came across this today, a long list of emoticons!! amazing what ppl come up with!!
fO_o (this means "scratching head").]


i was reading translations of interviews/toma's cellphone blog posts, and i learned a lot about's just some random things. u should look for his interviews/blog posts at the toma LJ site or the Tomalicious forum, they have lots of stuff translated, posted there, that i can't re-post here. also, the Enthralling toma fansite, if u can access it. i've recently been able 2 often access, not like be4!!

Toma is:
-sensitive and often gets lonely (awww!)
-neat/clean (doesn't like messiness)
-a gloomy/serious person
-NOT romantic!

Toma likes:
-hamburgers (and would like his future girlfriend 2 make some for him!)
-reading manga A LOT.
-girls (yes, toma likes girls!! he's said it many times be4. but i know lots of fans like 2 think yamapi is the only one 4 him. haha.) that are:
. girly more than tomboy-ish (uh oh, i'm out!!)
. straightforward (i am!)
. cute (not sure if he means cute as in pretty or cute as in likeable...i could still get 2 out of 3, depending on what kinda cute he means. haha.)
. not clingy/around him all the time (so she would have 2 not mind when he goes spend time with his guy friends, of course!)

"From now on imagine all you want and look forward to it." - Ikuta Toma

[thanks 2 Wing_Goddess 4 the quote]

i was just thinking of some other words u can make up from toma's name, besides tomalicious. here R a few i thought of 2 share with u all. haha.

tomarrific (instead of terrific)
tomamour (toma love (in French), and it also sounds like mon amour, which means "My love"!)
(according to Mak_time at

this is my imeem page. i uploaded 2 of toma's songs from Cat in the Red Boots there and just today, the "i'm sorry, it's not u" song by kelly chen (who's also the pretty girl in my profile pic now!). if u want 2 read the translated lyrics (in eng.), u can go there, i posted it in a comment to the song.
起 (dui bat hei)! (sorry in cantonese)

i found these 2 LJ sites about honey and clover:
[translations of some honey and clover and Hanazakari No Kimitachi E interviews! thanks 2 Yorokobi!]
Japanese Sound effects and what they mean. this can really come in handy if u can't speak japanese! i used it 2 figure out what toma writes in his blog posts sometimes.]

(more posts coming soon.
that R not random. =)
bye! -kate`*)

i made some new toma graphics

for my Asianfanatics account,
just an avatar and banner.
u can see them both in high quality here. ~_~

p.s. i noticed more and more ppl visiting this blog, and the frequency has increased too, lots more ppl have come here 10-99 times and some more have come here 100-999 times!
THANK YOU 4 checking out this blog/coming here often!!! i really appreciate the support!

playlist/ honey&clover/ do u want to know a secret?

i started a 2nd playlist at my youtube page 4 toma:
all cool video clips of toma that i watch from now, i'll add 2 that playlist. =)
the 1st one is mostly for all the really really great toma videos, so i don't wanna add 2 it
anymore 4 now.

***remember, there R some cool videos of toma at
CRUNCHYROLL, and there's some of his interviews with ENGLISH SUBTITLES there! =)


of course, u all know that toma's new tv series, honey and clover has started airing in japan. u can already find episode one online at sites like youtube and of course, the toma LJ site.
i've only watched a tiny bit of the start of episode one cuz i'm waiting 4 the subbed version, but so far, toma looks great and so young, he really does look student, especially with his shorts and backpack. :) even though he's dressed so casually & his hair is so simple, he still looks cute. toma's charm/silliness/cuteness is toned down a lot, but he's still got those certain toma funny faces/familiar gestures that u have seen be4! haha. but i'm looking forward 2 seeing him as the quiet guy instead of the outgoing guy.........but he'll be having another unrequited love story!!! =(


"do u want to know a secret?"
is a really sweet and cute song by the beatles, and i've recently been listening to their songs, and hearing this song made me think of nakatsu & mizuki's situation right away!! and i think it's so funny how in the series, mizuki's always saying "too close!" , but there's parts in the song that it says "closer"! nakatsu's always trying 2 get closer 2 mizuki. =) a lot of the song lyrics describes what nakatsu is thinking so so PERFECTLY! how it's a secret that he likes her, how he thinks she likes him too, etc. etc.!!

i was gonna make an MV using that song and screencaps, but then i thought it always takes me a long time 2 do this kinda thing, and it's much better with video clips, which i dunno how 2 do...

SO...just wanted 2 share my thoughts here and hope some1 will make an mv of them using this song.... =)

send toma fanmail / the right person 4 him: fiona vs. niki vs. hiromi

i found this by accident. dunno if it's the correct info, but it sure seems like it. :)
some1 asked where 2 send toma fanmail, and the reply was:

Send it to Johnny's Entertainment.

Address: 1-10-10, Shibuya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, 150-8550
Miyamasu Tower B1F
Johnny's Entertainment Co.,Ltd

...has any1 tried sending toma fanmail?
i wonder if toma responds 2 any fanmail...
what about requests 4 his autograph?


i was recently thinking about who i wish toma was dating again. haha...
earlier, i already talked about fiona sit and why i like her. now i'll add 2 more ppl 2 the list of possible girlfriends 4 toma --niki chow and hiromi wada.

[above: pretty niki!! (model/singer/actress), age 28
niki is 28 already! wow, u can't tell! she's been modeling since she was 17...
niki is 174cm (5.64 feet) tall and toma is 173cm (5.61 feet) tall, so she's also a little taller than him! but toma has said age doesn't matter 2 him, he doesn't mind dating some1 older. hehe. and she DOES NOT LOOK 28!! niki is hands down, the prettiest and most photogenic young female HK artist 2 me!!! she is a pretty good actress, though her singing could be better. um...i don't know much about her....but i do know she's a really cheerful, friendly, likeable person. :)
i think they'd be a PERFECT MATCH looks-wise, cuz both R so good-looking!! haha..and both of them R models, entered showbiz early in their lives....
just that niki doesn't speak japanese...but she sure looks cute in a kimono!! haha.]

watch this:
[niki's MV from last year---cute and pretty as always! and yes, she filmed this while she was in japan filming a commercial 4 some kinda tea.]

more info: ] [above: cute hiromi! (singer), age 19
hiromi, i only discovered her recently after watching the tohoku travel blog show. she's only 19!
she's 165cm, which is 5.35 feet tall. a little shorter than toma. hiromi is not as pretty as niki or fiona, but she's got a really cute personality---she's very hyper and silly (lots of times she acts like a big kid, like toma!!), and her voice is really cute, too! this is really great, too: her father is japanese, though she grew up in hk, so she can speak japanese (i think fluently!).
her personality is a lot like toma's, she's japanese/chinese, she's a singer. she also loves dogs, i think she's got 2! of all these 3 girls, she's got the most in common with toma!!! ~_~
of these 3, she's also arguably the best singer, though Fi's a good singer too, just when singing live, hiromi's got the stronger voice, while Fi's voice is often kinda weak.

watch this:
[super hyper/cute hiromi in beijing, MV]

ALSO, check this out, her MV of "summer snow" with clips of her in japan (from the tohoku travel blog show). i love this song, especially the 'da da da' parts!):

more info: ]

[above: fun fi! (singer/actress) , age 26
i've already talked about fi (fiona), but just wanna say again, she's such a cute and likeable girl!! just sometimes she acts a little TOO cute, but most of the time, u gotta love her! =P she's a talented singer, actress and also artist! she loves to draw/paint, etc. her personality is a lot like toma's .... silly, charming, fun-loving...also, fiona's got a dog. =) she can speak canto, mandarin, eng., french, but not japanese. =/ she's 168cm (5.45 feet) tall, so just a little shorter than him. also, just 3 years older than him.]

watch this:
[fiona's MV from 2007 for "next time next time"]

I'M BACK... ... more toma video clipz!

ok, on with posting...
i wish i had thought of this sooner, but oh well....
