and here's a more detailed news article about him appearing on all 10 books. UNPRECEDENTED!! CONGRATS TO TOMA, AGAIN. ^____^

Actor Ikuta Toma will play the lead role in the upcoming film '人間失格 / No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku)', which is based on the famous Dazai Osamu novel with the same title. The book cover of the novel published by Kadokawa was renewed in October, and has since then been featuring a photo of Ikuta. After the cover was revised, the book has so far sold over 100,000 copies. More are being printed to meet the demand. In response to those sales figures, Kadokawa decided that for a limited time period all 10 Dazai novels will have Ikuta appear on the covers; the campaign has started on December 15th, and the new versions are now on sale in bookstores all across Japan. It will be the first time that the lead actor of a film adaptation of a novel appear on the covers of all the works written by the author.

The main character of the film '人間失格 / No Longer Human' is a young man named Yozo (Ikuta), who from when he was young has difficulties socializing with other people. Although anxious and confused, Yozo's exquisite appearance and inborn attractiveness never fails to mesmerize the people around him, regardless of their gender. What will be the ultimate fate of Yozo? Aside from Ikuta, the star-studded cast includes Iseya Yusuke, Terajima Shinobu, Ishihara Satomi, Morita Go and more. Arato Genjiro is the director. Ikuta is also scheduled to star in the film 'ハナミズキ / Hanamizuki' which will premiere in summer next year. Be on the look out for more from Ikuta Toma!
