(got this from Abegale Jugno@the toma facebook!)

ehhhhhh.
it's almost 2011!!!
i love the new yr fireworks. yey!^^
ake ome!! ake ome!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!
I HOPE TOMA AND ALL OF TOMA'S FANS WILL HAVE A TRULY AWESOME, AWESOME 2011!!! ^_^

(it's the year of the bunny next year, so here's some toma + bunny pics....KAWAII!!! but yeah, it looks like he wants to bite the bunny in that chibi pic. xD)


ok, i'll talk about some not so happy toma-related stuff first...gomen! i just wanna get it out of the way, and then on to HAPPY things!!

i'm getting a little worried that toma and ningen won't win any awards....*sigh* there was 1 lady from ningen that won best supporting actress...but there's been like 3 or 4 film awards already and toma and ningen don't get anything. -___-

i'm happy toma's room has 240something members now and it's pretty active. but then...the toma LJ...the ikuta toma @ Livejournal community. it's really quiet ne. i really hope the creation of toma's room is not making things worse for the toma LJ, cuz i'm afraid more ppl will come to toma's room and stop going to the toma LJ. i still go to the toma LJ, but it's been super quiet there (well, of course, there's not much toma news these days, but still....). and the tomalicious forum is still super quiet. BUT THEY DO HAVE A VERY NICE XMAS LAYOUT AND XMAS BANNERS THERE NOW!! =D

OH, AND I'M SORRY THAT CUZ I'VE BEEN SPENDING MORE TIME AT TOMA'S ROOM, i haven't been updating this blog much. (well, and cuz not much toma stuff going on!) and i guess mizza has that same problem....wah...BUT DON'T WORRY, TL-CHAN AND TD-CHAN (toma love and tomaniac disorder) are soooo important to us and we'll always keep updating!! hehe.

OK,
HAPPY STUFF NOW!!!!! =)


just real quick, be4 i forget,
about the dates of hanamiz or ningen....
IF YOU LIVE IN THAILAND, HANAMIZUKI HAS BEEN SHOWING SINCE DEC. 23 (oops, but if u're there, u probably know already) AND IF U LIVE IN HONG KONG, IT'S GONNA BE SHOWN FEB. 17, 2011. IF U LIVE IN ASIA AND HAVE THE SCREEN RED CHANNEL, U CAN WATCH NINGEN IN JAN. 2011!

OH,
it's on the right side of my blog...
but in case u didn't notice...
it's a winter love fic i wrote for everyone!
a late xmas gift for all toma fans!

my 7th fic! the title is:
our almost one year anniversary. ♥

i hope everyone loves it as much as i do. ~__~
please comment!! thanks!

HMM.....
toma's newest entries from dec. 28 and 29 are kinda mysterious?? he said he got an xmas present from santa, but it's a secret. and then in the other entry, only one sentence, he thanks everyone very much this past year. and a pic of a plane at the airport. HE MUST BE GOING ON A TRIP SOMEWHERE!! ^__^ SHORT VACATION? since it's toma, it's more likely a work trip though...hmm. but he said he got a "present" from santa. maybe he is getting a few days off and he's going on a short trip somewhere nice!! i hope so!! heehee. toma, where are u now?? what r u doing?? hmm...hope he's having fun/resting. ~______~

AND
some interesting toma news......

AND
toma's toyota vitz cm!! he's like a secret agent who's protecting that girl and i think something super important in that bear plushie!! aww....so cool!! i love how toma can be anybody in these CMs...it seems so fun!! and i love seeing toma do so much funny/cool things in his CMs from this yr. hehe. *______* gakky also did a toyota cm in december! ~___~ u can watch it here, it's so cute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxKvlvAOHgM.

toma in cozy, soft winter clothes...~___~
the flyer from toma's double play!
love toma's stylish outfit + wearing glasses + pose+
looking sooooo cool in the pic with sho!! ^///^




...............summary of toma's recent msgs:

(but u should really read the original msgs at the toma LJ, toma's room LJ, or mizza's blog. thanks to jessica for translating and mizza for providing the msgs!!)

it's very cold. toma uses garlic to energize himself when it's too cold. he's been listening to more rock than metal music lately for some reason (like Death Metal, Slipknot).

toma's rehearsing for the play...working really hard. and the toyota vitz CM is on tv, you already know...

[this part is so cute, i'm gonna post exactly what he wrote]:
"Getting a job for cars commercial,
really tells me that I have grown up, I'm an adult now.

However, I'm still a youngster,
still have to work hard!

Keep working on it everyone~
By the way, it's the end of the year.
Finish all the things you haven't finished~

So, what would you guys do during Christmas?"

MERRY XMAS, EVERY1!! ^o^ ....genji monogatari sennenki (the anime)....


just a quick update right now cuz i haven't
finished gathering all the toma stuff to update. xD


IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE IN JAPAN AND
MANY OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

i hope everyone will have a very awesome xmas and a happy new year, too.♥ (this has nothing 2 do with toma, but i just love the xmas version of psych's opening so much!! *-*)


by the way, i had a kinda secret santa thing going on at toma's room...you can post nice things you want to say to me or mizza or toma or other toma fangirls...please go there to post or check out the messages. some1 wrote a message FOR toma AND all his fans, so you should at least read that. hehe. http://community.livejournal.com/toma_room/7037.html


(credit: xq)

a nice little christmas present for all toma fans...his new CM!! for toyota's vitz. *___* to watch it, please go to the toma's room LJ or the toma LJ to watch it.

and at a promotional event for it.....one of the cutest toma + a little girl moments everrr!!! ^////^ awwwwwwww!!! a little kiss for him for xmas!! kawaii!!! i dunno why toma seems to work with little girls a lot....like for his dramas/movies (maou, majosai, ningen). for photoshoots sometimes...and now in this CM!!! hehe....it'd be nice to see him as an older brother sometime in a drama/movie...with a really younger sister. ~___~


okie...

i will update this post with
some other toma stuff later in the coming week...^^



...................................................................................................

doumo!!

new winter banner!!
hope u like it. xD

(i used the same one f/last yr for dear toma. hehe)

and new toma pics!♥


(credit: king-kun, mizza.
potato and duet. gomen, i don't like his winkup pics that much so not posting it here. hehe. he looks kinda like 70s-ish in those pics. =T awww!! toma looks so KAKKOII in the potato pics!!!! omgggg. so hot. and i always love cozy looking toma pics, but his hair...i don't like his bangs too long and covering his forehead too much/swept to the side too much. =T)


(credit: the genji links below. xD) well....i was curious about how toma's genji movie might be like, so i looked for info about the older movies about the novel. but i didn't find much. except there was a movie where the role of genji was played by a woman!! wow.

but i found a site that review the anime genji monogatari sennenki, which was released just last year. wow.....it seems pretty good!! it's a really beautiful, colorful, surreal, sexy world. there's a lot of pretty moments, where they show the rain falling or the clouds drifting past the moon, etc...you can get an idea of what it's like when you watch this video here (also, some romantic moments when genji is with his lovers):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7733ga_RNQ
the shining prince (i love the song!! ~__~)

if u want to watch the anime, you can do so here and it's subbed (in english) too!! there are 11 episodes in all.
http://www.animefreak.tv/watch/genji-monogatari-sennenki-episode-1-english-dubbed-online-free

of course, the anime changes the story a lot so that genji doesn't seem like such a bad guy...whew! i guess toma's movie will be like that too. =) i guess i'll be ok with the movie if toma's genji is kinda like the genji in this anime.

i watched some of the love scenes in this anime....fufufu. it's really sexy...their robes drop...they kiss...sometimes the woman is moaning happily as genji pleasures her and you see them almost all naked!!! seems like all the women want him so bad and some seduce him! lol. but......aiyaaaaaaa. i really hope toma's love scenes in the movie will not be too sexy and hot. i'd get crazy jealous!! and also feel embarrassed for toma!! o___o

"Still, this definitely is one of the more unique harems I’ve seen, even though the story is 1000 years old by now. With Genji, you can see that the guy is a player, rather than a clueless harem lead. In the Tale of Genji, girls don’t flock to Genji, but Genji flocks to the girls, seduces them and then moves on again. This episode also showed that he really isn’t aware of the pain he brings to all of his victims. This whole love-thing is simply a game for him, and while he genuinely cares about the women he meets, he doesn’t try to take their own feelings into account at all. I think that that’s because he was raised as a prince and all. Japan’s emperors in ancient times have always had a reputation of being rather screwed in the head."

i'll add more to this post the next time i post......

oh....
about the awards toma was nominated for. toma didn't win anything. gakky didn't win either. *criesss!!*
i guess the competition was really tough. T___T i dunno anything about the movies and people that won, but i guess they deserve it and toma will have more chances to win awards later!!
http://community.livejournal.com/japan_now/1240698.html
(results of 35th Hochi Film Awards here...)


OH.... I JUST SAW AT GAKKY.ORG THAT TOMA AND GAKKY WERE NOMINATED FOR THEIR PERFORMANCE IN HANAMIZUKI!! but i have no idea what the award is, that's all they said. hehe. ureshii!! also, i got this news from there...hanamiz will be in theaters on 23 Dec in Thailand and 31 Dec in Taiwan.

oh, the hanamiz DVD will be released March 4, 2011. the special edition is the most expensive out of all of toma's movies. NO ENGLISH SUBS THOUGH. huhuhu. not that i can afford to buy it, but i'd be able to watch it faster if it already had subs and someone uploaded it. (SOMEONE, PLEASE SUB NINGEN IN ENGLISH!! and could someone please upload seaside?? and the hanamizuki soundtrack?? LOL.)

OH, THE GENJI MOVIE WON'T BE RELEASED UNTIL DECEMBER 2011!!! O__O i dunno why it's taking so long....maybe to add special effects or cuz more people watch movies in december...hmm. (thanks to careline 4 the news. btw, nino's Gantz movie will be released in the usa on jan. 20, 2011, in 300 theaters across the country!! omggg!! so awesome! but that makes me wish hanamizuki could have been released in many states in the usa. awww.....=T)

AND~
TOMA SAID HE COULDN'T SLEEP BEFORE FILMING THE LOVE SCENES (and there are many in this movie!) FOR GENJI MONOGATARI. awww....he was too nervous to sleep! and they say the sets for this movie are really expensive, one is 200 million yen! toma's costar in the double stage play is also in this movie, and he has acted as genji before!! LOL. you can read the whole article here:
http://community.livejournal.com/japan_now/1230904.html
Toma Ikuta had sleepless nights before shooting love scenes

................. TOMA'S PICS/screencaps.♥
(remember, you can see full versions of most of toma's magazines pics at mizza's blog or at the toma LJ!) (credit: mizza, xq, hakusai, na711, zoe, nami)

toma's hair is getting long...hehe. he looks cooler with long hair, but it kinda makes him look thin, and he's definitely gotten skinnier. *sigh* i like his blue/black soft n cozy looking sweater though!! haha.

toma really looks so WHITE in genji!! he does look like a ghost, mizza!! u're totally right!! xD oh, and some screencaps from kyuukei no kouya. =) i dunno what the ratings for it were....dunno when it'll be subbed. =T




............... summary of toma's room entries:
(credit: jessica, mizza. read the full messages at the toma LJ or mizza's blog.)

toma couldn't see the meteor shower cuz of the bad weather. the really cold weather makes him remember he was in kushiro last year around this time. he reminds everyone to watch kyuukei no kouya. even though it's not the kinda drama that makes people hyper. xD please support it.

toma's newest entry, 12/3, vol.409:
he's done shooting genji monogatari. he thanks everyone and asks us to please look forward to it.

"So.

Memorize the lines.

Take it seriously and work hard.

Be conscientious."

(i guess the last part...was what he kept in mind while working on the movie?)



................... THE GENJI NOVEL. UNBELIEVABLE!! T___T

(credit: http://public-domain-works.blogspot.com/2007_12_01_archive.html)

(SORRY FOR ALL THE YELLING IN CAPS BELOW. I GUESS I WAS JUST SO SHOCKED. BECAUSE FROM THE START CUZ I THOUGHT GENJI WAS KINDA LIKE OBA IN NINGEN....A CHARMING WOMANIZER. BUT I DID SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT HE'S MORE LIKE A SICK PERVERT WHO IS ALWAYS HARASSING GIRLS.)

if you don't know much about the novel, this link is kinda useful. there are a lot of facts and opinions about the genji novel here. BUT THE FACTS AND OPINIONS ARE ALL MIXED UP, SO IT'S KINDA MISLEADING. -___-
http://factsanddetails.com/japan.php?itemid=681&catid=20&subcatid=128

I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY SUCH AN AWFUL BOOK IS CONSIDERED A LITERARY TREASURE. IT'S MOSTLY ABOUT RICH AND POWERFUL MEN FORCING WOMEN (MOSTLY GIRLS) TO SLEEP WITH THEM. YEAH, IT'S ABOUT HOW LIFE IS TOO SHORT, THE STRESSFUL COURT LIFE IN THE HEIAN PERIOD, MAYBE THE WORLD'S FIRST PSYCHOLOGICAL NOVEL, BLAH BLAH BLAH. I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT STUFF, IT'S WRONG TO TREAT WOMEN LIKE THAT. EVEN IF THE WOMEN END UP STAYING WITH THE MEN THAT VIOLATE THEM, IT'S NOT NECESSARILY CUZ THEY LOVE THEM...THEY PROBABLY HAVE NO CHOICE OR MAYBE IT'S JUST STOCKHOLM SYNDROME.

T_____T I GOT SO ANGRY AFTER I READ SOME PASSAGES FROM THE NOVEL ABOUT GENJI FORCING HIMSELF ON SOME GIRLS. I KNOW THEY WILL CHANGE THE STORY FOR THE MOVIE, OBVIOUSLY. BUT I WAS SO UPSET THAT TOMA HAS TO PLAY THE ROLE OF THIS HEARTLESS BASTARD. WHY?? WHY DID SO MANY PEOPLE SAY HE'S LIKE THE MOST POPULAR PRINCE IN JAPANESE LITERATURE OR THE BEST LOVER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT??? HE'S SUCH A DIRTBAG!! o___o

WHAT'S WRONG WITH ALL YOU PEOPLE??!!! YEAH, I KNOW, BACK THEN IT WAS NORMAL TO TREAT WOMEN LIKE SLAVES, MANY GUYS DID IT, BLAH BLAH BLAH. BUT THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING WAS WRONG. BUT THEY KEPT DOING IT ANYWAY, CUZ THEY KNEW THEY WOULD GET AWAY WITH IT. DOES THAT MAKE IT RIGHT? DOES THAT MAKE IT OKAY TO IDOLIZE THESE CREEPS EVEN TO THIS DAY? OKAY TO ACCEPT THE HORRIBLE TREATMENT OF GIRLS AND WOMEN BACK THEN? OKAY TO SAY THIS NOVEL IS ONE OF THE BEST PIECES OF CLASSICAL LITERATURE FROM JAPAN AND IGNORE ALL THE MISOGYNY GOING ON? HOW CAN YOU??!!!

GENJI AND ALL THE OTHER MEN IN THE NOVEL THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WOMEN MAKE ME SICK!

PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW OF THE NOVEL!! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS PERSON!! C. Ackerman, thanks so much for your review!! *clapsss*

"The story follows the amorous adventures of upper-class Japanese men in the Heian period as they pursue women, who are sequestered out of sight behind screens and blinds.
...The basic structure of the book is that it is a series of seduction/rape stories which go on for so long that the characters have regrets and have to confront death. Sometimes the girls -- rarely women -- are so stunned by Genji's and the other men's social status and beauty that they willingly submit; other times the enthusiasm is decidedly lacking, though the girl may grow to appreciate the man."

(to read the full review/read about how men often forced women to sleep with them back then/learn more about the stockholm syndrome:

TOMA's BEEN NOMINATED FOR SOME FILM AWARDS! ^__^ and updates on Kyukei no Koya, his plays next year, etc...



konbanwa!

kate desu~

sorry for the long wait. like i said, i've been waiting for more toma news to build up be4 i post, and i've been kinda lazy to update/busy. haha.... OH, I HOPE YOU ALL LIKE THE NEW BANNERS FOR THIS BLOG AND DEAR TOMA... TOO. IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO FIND NICE AUTUMN PICS. I ALMOST GAVE UP....xD (oh, i love toma's duet pics this month!! the pic above. ^///^ kakkoii!!!! i think it's duet...hmm.)

u know what...
i miss the good old days, back in 2007 and 2008, when the toma fandom was much more active. i guess it's normal to have a lack of fangirling at certain times of the year, but....seems like some toma sites have been really quiet. the tomalicious forum, TFS, even the toma LJ, i guess. i'm a little worried about that.

i guess it's because toma's working on movies more than dramas? THANK GOODNESS i was a fan since 2007. i could hardly keep up with all the new stuff posted about toma almost everyday, though....so i guess it's not so bad when it's kinda quiet like these days, either. haha. I KNOW THERE'S STILL A TON OF TOMA FANS OUT THERE.....cuz whenever something exciting like toma's FF14 cm came out, there's a ton of comments and flailing going on everywhere. LOL!!! and soooo many people wished toma a happy birthday at twitter this year. ~_____~ i just wish everyone could do more fangirling more often, not just on special occasions, like toma's birthday. that would be nice ne.....

oh, speaking of twitter, hiro and ayaka started to twitter!!! wow....i wish toma could too, but i guess it's not gonna happen as long as he's still with Johnnys. which will be FOREVER. LOL....and congrats to hiro on winning an award for his short novel or something!! SUGEHHH!! ^___^


OH, SO THE BIG NEWS RIGHT NOW
(just announced yesterday?) IS.....!!!


TOMA AND NINGEN GOT NOMINATED FOR SOME FILM AWARDS!!
YEYYYYYY!!! ^_______^


here's the news
(thanks to misa for telling me!! ~_~):

http://community.livejournal.com/aramatheydidnt/1495659.html
Johnny’s stars nominated for 2010 Hochi Film Awards

(go to the 3rd page of comments
to see the full translated list of nominated actors/actresses + movies)


toma got nominated for:

-BEST ACTOR (ningen shikkaku, hanamizuki)
-BEST NEW ARTIST (ningen shikkaku, hanamizuki)

and ningen got nominated for BEST PICTURE (japanese film).
also, gakky got nominated for BEST ACTRESS (hanamizuki)!! yeyyyyy!! ~___~


i'm so happy and proud of toma. happy for the ningen team too! and i'm glad toma and gakky will be reunited there. hehe. i miss seeing them together. i hope they both win!! i hope toma will win both awards, and ningen will win. i dunno anything about the people or movies they're up against, but jin is the guy competing with toma for all those categories. O__O aiyaaaaaaa.

I HOPE TOMA CAN AT LEAST WIN THE BEST NEW ARTIST. IT WOULD BE SO AWESOME IF TOMA and NINGEN win all these awards, though!!!!!!!!!! ★__★ toma really deserves to win!! he's worked so hard for both ningen and hanamiz, and his acting is brilliant!!! (everyone, please chant with me.... TOMA, TOMA, TOMA, TOMA, TOMAAA!!! xD)




(toma at the press conference for his double stage play. HE LOOKS SO COOL AND HANDSOME, AS USUAL. hehe....his hai is kinda too poofy, but i like the simple, stylish, long-ish black suit....
***the links to DL the press conference video clips or the CM for the drama are below, in the COOL LJ STUFF section.*** =) )


(toma hitler fan art. gosh, he still looks so cute!!)


i'm really excited about toma playing the role of a woman in madame de sade. heehee.
but the hitler role.... *sigh* i guess i don't mind it that much now, but once i see some video clips and pics from it once toma's really in hitler mode, then i think i might be a little disturbing....O__O

the play is about hitler deciding to execute a bunch of people within one night? something like that. aiyaaaa.....@____@. kowai ne. and recently ppl that hate president obama have been calling him "hitler". good grief! like someone commented, "NO ONE IS HITLER EXCEPT HITLER." haha. umm....but it's a super challenging role, and i guess it'll show how good an actor toma is if he can pull it off. so.....gambatte, toma-kun!!

LOL....at what toma said in the news below.
OF COURSE YOU'LL BE THE PRETTIEST, TOMA!!♥♥



http://community.livejournal.com/japan_now/1185953.html#cutid1
Higashiyama and Ikuta hope playing women will make them better actors

Johnny’s stars Noriyuki Higashiyama (44) and Toma Ikuta (26) talked about their hopes for their upcoming stage plays Madame de Sade/わが友ヒットラー (Waga Tomo Hitler, My Friend Hitler) in the “ミシマダブル (Mishima Double)” show at a press conference in Tokyo yesterday, reports Ticket Pia.

The two actors attended the event with other cast members and theatre director Yukio Ninagawa (74).

The first play, Madame de Sade, is set in 18th century Paris where six women talk about their encounters with an imprisoned aristocrat, Marquis de Sade, while the second, My Friend Hitler, is based on the historical Night of the Long Knives incident in 1934. Both plays were written by acclaimed Japanese playwright Yukio Mishima, who had even left notes saying he had wanted male actors to play the women in Madame de Sade.

Theatre director Ninagawa had said he had unique and big plans for his actors to try and match Mishima’s dramatic visualization of the shows. Hearing Ninagawa’s plans, Higashiyama said he had a lot to learn in order to fulfill his director’s expectations.

“I was surprised at how much of it expresses Ninagawa-san’s sadistic qualities,” he said.

“If we get through this play, we’ll be pretty amazing don’t you think?,” Ikuta said.

The two actors continued to talk about their own goals for the show.

“I hope [Ikuta and I] can learn a lot. I want to make it a play I’ll never forget, and I hope I can become a better actor,” Higashiyama said.

“This’ll be the first time I cross-dress. But I hope that the people who come to see the show go home thinking I was the most prettiest,” Ikuta said.

“Mishima Double” will start performances in Tokyo from February 2 to March 2 before moving onto Osaka for performances from March 8 to 20. Tickets are set to go on sale from November 27.

toma likes to have breakfast in a coffee shop lately. he's sorry for not updating, but "no news, means everything's fine. that's good." he's not used to filming with his friend yet. =P

about the 2 plays' press conference. please look forward to febrary 2011, he'll try his best for his performance. "the weather is turning cold, be careful and don't catch a cold!" filming for Genji is going well and he's used to the heavy traditional japanese clothing and wigs now. he'll work very hard to make it a good movie. the leonid meteor shower...heard that we can see the most from the night of nov.17 to 18. "2001's meteor shower was awesome! they just slid past very quickly". he really wants to see the meteor shower again this year ne. "...sorry for changing the topic so many times." (haha...toma. u don't have to apologize for that! and i love meteor showers too, toma!! but i didn't see any. *sigh* sometimes i do see random shooting stars though. ~__~)

Toma Ikuta gobsmacked by actor Masakazu Tamura’s charm, but so was Tamura

Actor Masakazu Tamura (67) spoke highly of Toma Ikuta (25) at a press conference in Tokyo today for their upcoming drama, reports Eiga.com.

Both actors are starring in “球形の荒野 (Kyukei no Koya)”, a story set in 1960s Japan. Tamura plays a diplomat who was supposed to have died in Switzerland during the war, while Ikuta plays a detective.

During the press conference, Tamura has been reported to have said he was impressed with Ikuta.

“He’s very good looking and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does next,” he said.

Ikuta, who could not make it to the event because of other filming commitments, had sent a message about how he found working with Tamura.

“When I first met him, he was so charming my heart started thumping really loudly.”

Other cast members at today’s event included Yosuke Eguchi (42), Ikuta’s character’s detective partner, and Manami Higa (24), Tamura’s character’s daughter.

“球形の荒野 (Kyukei no Koya)” will go on air in Japan on November 26 and 27.

............summary of toma's room entries:

(OH, TOMA'S GENJI PICS ARE SOOOOO HANDSOME AND COOL. i think i imagined he'd look exactly like this....^////^ wahhhhh....no wonder all the women want him. hehe. and his costumes look so nice!! and heavy... i just don't like his super high hat though. haha.)

after a long while of posting nothing, toma decides to post 2 super long messages, oct. 20 and 21. haha.

he's sorry for not updating and people have been asking him to update it! he's been reading a lot of manga all of a sudden. Uchu Kyodai made him cry and wanna go to outer space. he loves listening to AJIKAN songs over and over. the movie filming is going smoothly. it takes him 1.5 hrs to get his make up done and change into his costume. he's doing research on hitler to prepare for his stage play. very few actors have acted as hitler, so this is a very special role. he'll "take it very seriously and carefully. please look forward to it....it's time for me to go to bed.
good night."

toma's friend from secondary school is acting as his friend in the movie, as the General! matsuya and him thought it would be nice if they could one day work together (though his friend was a Kabuki actor). now it's come true! they only were in the same stage play Stand by Me when they were little, but did not have scenes together. so this is the first real time. toma is reallyyyy happy about it and says "i am very thankful and i will treasure the chance." and yappari, he'll try his best and make this a good movie.

(WOW......THAT'S SO AMAZING!
I'M GLAD TOMA AND HIS FRIEND CAN FINALLY ACT TOGETHER. ~___~)

oh, i included the pics from POTATO again, cuz i LOVE them sooooooooo MUCH. but i just realized while making icons out of them...that pic of toma looking to the left (his right). OMG!!! what's that twisted, scary-looking thing near the shelf!!! I THINK THAT IS TOMA'S VEINY HAND. O___O i guess they didn't notice how changing the colors of the pic made toma's hand look so scary. KOWAI. gahhhhhhh......!!

oh, i'm including 1 older pic, cuz i didn't post a big enough pic. toma + nagase!! ^__^ and toma wearing a HAT again! hehe. oh, and i always love toma + rain/umbrella pics!! though they're mostly kinda moody, grey-ish pics....

I LOVE THE LIBRARY PICS. reminds me of my 2nd fic....aww....even though toma looks so annoyed/bored in the pics. haha!! and his outfit is so similar to the one he wore in a photoshoot at a toy store in 2008!! did u notice that too?? and of course, TOMA + GLASSES = LOVE!! (but those glasses look too fake. hmm...)

........................some highlights and comments from EPISODES #6-8 of UnuDeka. =D


HEY~ HEY~ HEY~!

episode 6 was about sadame!!

^_^ my fav quotes from that episode:

--it finally happened to me too! my destined girl, u know?

--ah let me just tell u now. i'm super stupid, see?
though if i keep my mouth shut i'm good-looking, so...

it was a nice episode, but as expected, the love story didn't really go anywhere. but it was sweet that they did hold hands and kinda shared an apartment. ~___~ though i don't think she matches with him that much, but she does look attractive, in a subtle way, i guess. and kind and sweet. hmm...and there were some super hot/cute/touching toma moments!! i loved the part where he yelled "it doesn't matter!" like the way nakatsu would, with that accent too!! heehee!! xD

ep.s 7 and 8 were ok....
seems like the cases keep making less and less sense, and the ladies that unubore falls for keep getting less and less pretty too. LOL. but it was cool to see unubore as the bartendar in ep.7 and the ending was so funny (and i love how the colorful ferris wheel is featured)!! episode 8....it was fun to see unubore and his dad interact more and argue and fight over the same woman (who was 1 of the women toma was with for ningen!! ehhhh!!). hehe. it's reallyyy hard to believe that unubore would fall in love with her so quick though (and why???)!! oh well. xD looking forward to watching the last 3 episodes....

u can see the screencaps below (and some others) full size here:

Foreigners victims, perpetrators of sekuhara

*sigh* THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY. THIS IS WHY SOMETIMES I WISH I WAS A GUY. of course, guys are also sexually harassed, but it's certainly a much much bigger and dangerous problem for women all over the world. like i said before, i love japan, but i really can't stand certain things about it...u can read my comment there, so i won't repeat myself here.

while we're on the subject,
something else that is really scary are BED BUGS. their numbers are increasing worldwide. i don't want to say it's a pandemic, but....good grief. i guess it might be going that way. please be especially careful when u're at a hotel or dorm. that's where they're often found. they're sneaky little pests (about the size of a grain of rice?) and they are SUPER hard to get rid of.
