universities toma has filmed at....
you there in Japan~
元気 ですか ?
hello, everyone else!
=) since there's a lot of ppl f/ all over the world that come here,
i thought from now on, sometimes i'd have a special shoutout for ppl in a certain country at the start of my posts. i'll just choose randomly f/the places that i see the most visitors are from, or maybe sometimes the ones where i've only got 1 visitor from too! of course, japan toma fans get the FIRST shoutout! ^_^ well, i guess for everyone, i'll say the same thing: "hi, how are you?" and i'll write it in your country's main language too, unless babelfish or google translate can't translate it for me.
i'm kinda like daiki in Voice, cuz i'm sometimes curious about details that no one else pays attention to or thinks about. (so, sorry if this post is boring to you.) you see, i really loved the location where they filmed hana kimi, that university...really such a lovely place, with all the trees and pathways and fountain...so i tried looking up the name of that university so that i could hopefully find some pics of it online. i found out the name, but wasn't able to find any pics. at least there's 1 pic of it at the wiki page. here's what i found:
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e Ikemen Paradise (Japanese: 花ざかりの君たちへ イケメン♂パラダイス, - Hanazakari no Kimitachi e Ikemen Paradaisu), also known as Ike-para, is a Japanese drama produced by Fuji Television and first aired on July 3, 2007. It is based on Hisaya Nakajo's manga, Hana-Kimi. Filming locations include the Ryutsu Keizai University.
[some info about this private school here]
well, while i was at it, i looked for the one they used in Hachimitsu to Clover too. i guess they used the Musashino Art University, then? i can't tell from the pics at the websites below, though. it's quite a pretty school too, ne. this is what i found:
The manga title was inspired by two CDs sitting side by side on a shelf; Honey by the band Spitz, and Clover by the band Sugashigao. For that reason, many songs from the two bands were used in the anime series.
Hamadayama Art University, the locale for the story, was based on the actual Musashino Art University where Masamune Kusano, the lead singer from Spitz, attended. The university is named in the credits for both movie and anime, as the campus is almost an exact replica.
i tried looking for info about the university used in Voice, but no luck.
i like how this university's campus and buildings look too! it seems more old-looking and plain than the other 2, but still looks quite nice and a pleasant place to study at. we even got an aerial view of it in episode one! if anyone knows the name of this university, please tell me. maybe they mentioned it at the official website, but i can't read japanese, so...
i think it would be so cool if you're a toma fan and you're a student at the university and u see them filming a scene right there at your school!!! wahhhh...u get to see toma and the cast and everything.... sugoi!! or if u are a toma fan and you're gonna be going to one of those universities where toma has filmed at or is filming at. just knowing toma-kun has been there is a happy feeling, right? *__* it's like "toma-kun stood here...or he has walked past here...he~ was~ really~ here~!" ahhhhh.
this is it for today.
