MAJO SAIBAN CM! / kate looks for WITCH TRIAL info...


to those of you~ reading this in Germany~

hallo, wie geht es dir?

and to all~ how's it going?

hey, it's the 1st day of spring today!!
can u feel it~ the love in the air? haha.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equinox
and just something interesting to know~ the vernal equinox occured today. it's a moment when the sun's center is vertically above the earth's equator. i'm interested in astronomy, u can tell. =)

so~ the poll was completed yesterday. thank you all for voting!
now i can better know my audience, so to speak. and the results are:


please finish this statement. i'm just curious...arigatou!
"I am..." (u can pick more than 1):


-japanese, but i don't live in japan. 1 (2%)
-not japanese and i don't live in japan. 34 (70%)
-japanese and i live in japan. (lucky~! ~_~) 2 (4%)
-not japanese and i live in japan. (also lucky!!) 1 (2%)
-not fluent in speaking japanese/trying to learn it. 30 (62%)
-able to speak japanese fluently. 2 (4%)

Total Votes: 48
(since u can pick more than one, so the %'s don't add up to 100)


wow! i thought there'd be more ppl f/the first category. but i guess they would go to japanese sites about toma and not here. or they might not be interested in japanese entertainment, even, who knows. yappari most of u are not japanese, not in japan, and don't speak japanese/trying to learn it. me too! ^_^ but there's at least a few of you that are really lucky, either u live in japan or u speak japanese fluently! sugoi!! ah~ i really envy you people!! (oh, i'm glad each category got at least one vote! cool!)


just a few days ago, the link to a super short CM of witch trial was posted at the LJ!! thanks to janinamedina and anggie for the link!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjsw4iNt1LQ

his hair!! i was surprised (despite seeing him w/wavy hair in recent magazines)!! kept re-watching it to make sure...HIS HAIR IS WAVY!! EHHHH!! but for his FIRST LEADING ROLE, i wanted everything to be perfect, including his hairstyle!! =T yeah, it kinda looks like yamashita's hairsyle in Code Blue, but it's a better look for him than toma.


DOUSHITE?! he looks so much cuter w/straight hair!! ah...i'll just have to get used to it. maybe it's cuz his character's hair in the manga is like that? actually, i didn't like his hairstyle in Maou at first either. the first time i saw it. but of course when i actually started to watch it, i was relieved to see that toma was still soooo good-looking! haha. i hope it'll be the same for majo saiban.
(not that the only reason i watch toma's dramas is because he looks good, but u know-- i want him to look his best whenever possible (especially in his first starring role) since he's soooooo cute!! why waste his good looks, u know. =P)


BUT the CM is pretty cool! i love how toma's voice sounds in that 1 sentence he said!!

i think he said something like "on that day, is my trial"?

oh, right. almost forgot to say, toma's character will be called:
Yoshioka Tooru (よしおか とおる)
thanks to paige and hpswf1 for the info!
tooru-kun! can't wait to see you in action! ;)


since there's no new news at the LJ or at the official website, i looked for info about the manga it's based on, but no luck. except for this image. i'm guessing his character is that guy w/long hair and the backpack? eh...so his hairstyle is not like that cuz of his character in the manga. and while searching, i came across this, a toma fan talking about toma. it really made me LOL, cuz what she said...it just came out of nowhere!! haha. come read it and see what i mean. toma's fans R hilarious. :D

well, since the manga search is a dead end, i thought of the title and dark theme of the drama. and it is reminiscent of the 17th century salem witch trials in the colonial Massachusetts, right? that was a sad/crazy time...though this case is completely different, somehow...i feel that lady on trial will be misunderstood and turn out to be innocent. hmm...we'll see.

thanks to aniki 4 sending me this cool video.
i love the music and its title is so beautiful too~

"a poem of everyone's soul"
(全ての人の魂の詩, Subete-no hito-no dama-no shi)
listen to the full song here.

(AKA "a poem FOR everyone's soul", but i think the more accurate translation is "of")

i'll certainly return to the Velvet Room sometimes...
