where to read tomagoto / more kawaii toma pics! =)


since a lot of people have been asking lately, i've written some detailed instructions below, about where to go to read translations of toma's blog, tomagoto. also, i wrote a post about tomagoto here, go there to find out more about toma's jweb (another name for his blog)! =)

(instructions of where to read his jweb are also posted there)


also linked to the post above from here, so other new fans will get this info too, i hope. http://ikutatomalove.blogspot.com/2007/10/toma-101-new-fans-guide-2-everything.html

douzo!

1) NEWEST POSTS HERE:
u can read the 2007-most recent posts at this section of Tomalicious:
http://z11.invisionfree.com/Ikuta_Toma/index.php?showforum=83
(but u have to register there first and i think u have to have at least 50 posts to access this section. well, start posting a lot, but remember, don't spam!)

2) RECENT/OLDER POSTS HERE:
u can also read a lot of recent/old tomagoto posts here: http://www.tomalicious.com/
or
http://community.livejournal.com/ikuta_toma/tag/jweb
u need to register first at tomalicious, then u can access the Translations section. for livejournal, some posts are locked, so you should register at livejournal (https://www.livejournal.com/create.bml) and then join that ikuta_toma group (http://community.livejournal.com/ikuta_toma/) to make sure u can see all the posts. (registration is free at both places!)

*** Tomalicious.com is the better place to go, cuz they've got a lot of his posts, they're nicely organized and in order, and the translations are correct and easy to read.*** BUT at livejournal, there's MANY different translators, and they vary in the quality of translation. and there's so many recent/old tomagoto posts there, not in order, might be hard 4 u to look thru them all...]

AND~
toma also had his own corner on Wink Up Magazine titled “Ikuta Toma no Ikita Kotoba” (Toma Ikuta's Words to Live By). On this corner he used to talk about “heart-felt” things, and he often writes about his mom. "On this corner he writes a one-page essay about things that interest him, as well as his daily experiences. Included in the page are pictures taken from his own camera." (this info from his current wikipedia page) Don't know when he started writing for this corner again, but now each month there's a new one. and TFS translates them!! i didn't know about this till recently! haha. i told u i was behind on toma stuff! in these, he writes quite a lot about what's going on in his life and also shares nice pics of himself or scenary that he took himserlf. u can find them here at TFS's LJ: http://community.livejournal.com/tomalicious_frm/

(you should join livejournal and then join this group, also, for the reasons i said above)

IF U STILL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLS ADD A COMMENT BELOW THIS POST and I'LL TRY TO HELP YOU OUT. =)

hey carly~
u don't have to really teach me. just sometimes when u post, write 1 word in japanese and tell me what it means. that would be cool. but it's ok if u don't remember.
