THANKS A MILLION TO sakura_hana510 FOR TELLING US!
it is so cool to see toma's drama talked about IN ENGLISH, on a website right here in the usa. though they can't post up his or ohno's pics at all. lol. but i love the synopsis. beautifully written! it describes the plot so perfectly ne~ sugeh.
"Ryo Naruse (Satoshi Ohno) is a two-faced lawyer: on the surface, he is a kind-hearted soul, representing the poor and earning the nickname "The Angelic Lawyer" from the press; but unbeknownst to anyone else, he is also a "devil," meticulously plotting the perfect revenge against those responsible for his younger brother's death. Naoto Serizawa (Toma Ikuta) is a gung-ho detective whose overzealous methods mask a dark past which he is trying to overcome. When a family acquaintance of Serizawa's is murdered, Serizawa is thrust in the middle of a multiple-homicide case which stirs up memories of a dark event from his past - and Naruse's."
(*_* some of my fav maou pics i found online...sorry, dunno who made the cool dark ohno behind toma or the red feathers graphics below.)
and it starts airing oct.11, the day that i will go to mitsuwa to find out whether or not my toma fan art made it into the nov. issues of winkup and potato or not!!^^ i'll also have a belated, mini bday celebration for toma-kun there. lol. ahhhh~ it's gonna be a good day, no matter what the results are...sugoi! *_*
I AM SO SO SO SO
EXCITED AND HAPPY THAT MAOU IS AIRING SOON IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!!!!!!♥♥ i miss naoto and naruse!!
got this news since last week at LJ, and i was so happy, i was jumping up and down when i checked and YES, i do get that channel!!! *_* lol. those of u who live in japan and other countries where u can see toma on TV, u are so lucky!!! i live in the usa, so this will be the FIRST TIME i get to watch a toma drama on TV, and i'm so glad that this 1st time, it could being my 2nd favorite toma drama ever!!!! (not counting watching hana kimi on DVD, but unsubbed!) this is like...my 3rd most HAPPY TOMA-RELATED moment of this year. ~_~ (#1 is finding out he's starring in ningen shikkaku. #2 is finding out he gets his first leading drama role in majosai.)
and when i found out it was probably gonna be subbed...UWAAAAA!!!! ^0^ awe~some. completely. *___* (though i'm sure the subtitles' quality won't be as good as the fansubs, but STILL!!!!!!! ~_~) even if it was not subbed, i was already super hyper about being able to record it this time on DVD (though i already downloaded all the ep.s, of course) and having an excuse to re-watch it!!! (laughs) this is such a coincidence, actually, cuz just days before i got this news, i saw masaki okada's (not subbed) recent drama on channel 18. he was sekime in hana kimi. :) and it made me think that i wish they'd air toma's dramas sometime. AND MY WISH CAME TRUE!!! arigatou gozaimashita!!! :D
iya~ though i finished watching maou since nov. of last yr, i still feel so close to naoto and the whole maou world...watching majosai reminded me of maou so much. also because, especially because, i just watched the dvd extras at the end of august to celebrate my 2 years as a toma fan anniversary ne~~ mixed feelings of happiness and sadness!! so nostalgic!!! i have re-watched hana kimi a few times, but not maou. i will definitely watch it again!!! probably with neesan...IF THERE'S ANYONE HERE THAT ACTUALLY *HAS NOT* WATCHED MAOU YET, AND U CAN WATCH THIS CHANNEL, THEN YOU'VE GOTTA WATCH IT!! i'll be watching it too~ we can all watch it together. let's all support naoto (and toma) together!!!!!♥
it took me a while to post this up cuz i wanted to get screencaps from the dvd extras first. so many touching and happy moments ne!!! (lol, i am using way too much exclamation points in this post, gomen~) most pics below are from the dvd's slideshow, Maou - Hall of Memories. (i don't own the dvd, someone very generously posted the dvd extras online. i have posted the link somewhere or some1 has commented about it somewhere in my blog, u can try searching for it if u wanna see the extras. most of them are available online at youtube, actually.)
one of my favorite moments is when toma is standing there, holding the umbrella. a very solemn, peaceful moment (and of course, he's so KAKKOII, the serious look on his face, in his cool black suit and tie~~).
(i love how cool and boyish he looks in this tanktop!!♥ they even talked about the tanktop and his jeans in the interview...i only know he said something about his tanktop being "juu roku mahn", which is 16 something?? what was he saying, could some1 tell me?? I REALLY LOVE THIS GREY TANKTOP. i have 1 similar to it since be4 i watched maou!! 1 grey, 1 black. heehee~ i always liked it, but after maou, it's become my favs, both the grey and black versions of it. actually, i'm wearing the black one RIGHT NOW. lol.)
(HURRAY FOR MAOU TEAM!!!!! ^o^)
music: Maou music (the OST, on repeat!!)
