-----> here's a really cool magazine article translation, cuz the awesome ppl at Tomalicious translated and edited the scan so that it looks like a toma article in english. wouldn't that be really cool, though, someday, 2 see toma being interviewed by some kinda english magazine, and we can actually read the article instead of the translated version?? wah.... keep getting more popular, toma, so this day can come SOON! =P
tons of cute and TOMALICIOUS pics here, including more from the shirtless toma pics i posted a little while back!!!

a really belated CONGRATULATIONS! to toma here (though at AF, i posted a congrats message on that day, of course!) for winning BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR for Honey and Clover, though i thought i read it wrong, cuz isn't he the male LEADING ACTOR for that drama? i don't get it...
anyway...he won something. it's all good. and he won by a BIG GAP, too. =D
and his acting is great in that series, of course!!
