Toma Ikuta stars in new TOKIO music video

Johnny’s Jr.’s Tohma Ikuta (25) will make his music video debut with TOKIO for their upcoming single “NaNaNa (太陽なんていらねぇ (Taiyo nante irane))”, it has been revealed yesterday reports

The music video will focus on Ikuta, who plays a man dumped by his girlfriend for being too unreliable, but is cheered on by TOKIO’s song to try and propose to her again. TOKIO members appear throughout the video, including group leader Shigeru Joshima (39) dressed in a pink bathrobe, and Taichi Kokubun (35) on a rope ladder hanging from the ceiling.

Ikuta has been reported to have said he was excited to have worked on this project.

“To me, TOKIO have been great big brothers for years.

“I’m really happy to be able to work with them in this way,” he said.

The popstar also said he was happy with the finished video.

“If you relax a little, it’s enough to grab your heart and make you cry,” he said.

.............toma no heya...kate's summary of his recent messages. =)


(to read the whole messages, go to the toma LJ right now. ^_^ or mizza's blog: thanks to jessica for translating his entries!)

he's been working really hard, non-stop! but he's having fun filming for unubore! but he's also been spending a lot of time with yamashita and they talked a lot. ~___~ he also went to watch a movie with yoko and yoko embarrassed him by yelling out "isn't that toma!" when the hanamizuki trailer was shown. xD heehee... oh, he reminds everyone to watch unubore deka of course...yoroshiku. about the PV, toma says
"I never performed in a pv before, I'm glad to have this chance." and
"The procedure of filming it was great! The first edition cd includes the PV, please support :)
It's a work that is very touching.
Again, Thanks to the TOKIO members who let me perform."

and he wrote a long, touching message about how he felt when watching ningen on dvd again (cuz it's gonna be released august 4!)... ~__~ he thinks he looks so normal (boring?) in the making of ningen. lol. and he says:
"I think it is a very important movie for me.
Everyday, feels like it's a dream, it makes my life full and happy.
Everytime I think about the finish filming and the scene of hugging the director, it's still very touching." awww...... and this part is kinda long, but so touching and inspiring ne!!! thanks for your words of encouragement, toma!!!♥♥ LET'S ALL KEEP TRYING OUR BEST!! GAMBARIMASHOU!!! YEY....

"After the making,
I said: No matter what happens in the future, I would think about the things that happened in the past 2 months
Now, honestly, lots of things are stuck together, it's very hard.
This is the first time for me to get encouragement from myself.
I just feel it, It' not really tough though.

So I'm gonna have to try my very best.
People who are reading this journal, who feel tired or sick of anything,
let's do it together and try our best!

It is nice for us to meet like this,
I still have to work harder and harder,
follow me! :D"

( much toma and gakky cuteness!!!!!!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥ and toma and shun love too! LOL. ehhh. shun's hair doesn't look good. and i don't understand why gakky keeps putting her hair up, in a bun, in some photoshoots. it makes her look older (like toma's older sister? haha.) and not so pretty. =T toma's AESTHETIC preview pics by himself are KAKKOII!!!!! OMG....kyaaaaaa. *BLUSH*!!!)


the hanamizuki photobook!!

the toma bio book!

...............I WATCHED EPISODE 1!!

unubore is a really funny drama!! hahaha. though toma's got a pretty small role, i really enjoy watching it. =) sadame (toma's character, the conceited actor) doesn't seem so interesting so far....but he's definitely the cutest guy in the drama right?? haha. but he seems to wear a certain denim vest a lot...but i don't like denim vests. o__0

nagase (the conceited detective, unubore) is soooooo funny and childish. LOL. he's got a ton of funny faces!! but he's also kakkoii and smart ne. and he does seem like a really nice guy...though he's love. xD umm....toma and the other guys, Unubore 4, are quite annoying and nosy though! and i don't get their jokes and gestures sometimes... i don't like unubore's partner/boss either. but i really like unubore's super jealous, cool ex-girfriend, rie! haha. and i love all the pretty locations....the bar, unubore's apartment, etc.....sugoi ne! and kato ai-san was kirei and sweet like usual....~__~

umm...since toma's only got a small role in this drama, i'm not gonna have post a lot of comments or screencaps for each episode, like i did with his dramas in the past....unless toma does something interesting, i'll maybe only post 1 screencap and talk about the episode a little bit...

oh, here are the ratings so far. i hope it will go up...hmm.

[tomatoloves's translation of the latest Popolo interview with Toma & Gakky!]

an excerpt from the interview. wow.....otsukaresama, toma!!!

Ikuta: I woke up in the middle of the night at 2am and left the harbour at 3am. And then I came back at 9am in the morning. Those days were harsh.

Aragaki:We filmed during October last year, right? The sea seems really cold.....

Ikuta: I only remembered after you said that. It was really cold. (bitter laugh) The boat would be rocking and it was pitch black all around.

XD KAKKOII.......^///^ aww....i'm gonna miss the @DEEP team!! cuz i sometimes feel like i'm an otaku i'm kinda...just a tiny bit like izumu-chan, my personality. haha...sore ga nani ga? xD (her motto: so what? wait, or is it sore wa nani ga? not sure. xD) and like them, i'm a combination of great talent, but fatal flaws. LOL!!! ahh...i'm just trying to be conceited like unubore and sadame. *laughs*

as promised, here's a new entry!!

not much to talk about though. (whew! haha...i don't like it when there's way too much toma stuff going on....) i still haven't watched Unubore deka yet, cuz TFS hasn't finished subbing it yet. oh, sorry for the spam in my cbox. just a few weeks ago, some spam starts showing up sometimes. DAMN IT. i'll just have to accept it and delete it everyday.....*sigh*

but.....i just saw today, from my cluster map page, that now...JAPAN!! JAPAN is the country that i get the 4TH most visits from!!!! *___* ehhhh!! it's always been around 6th place. now it's 4th!! i'm really really happy that more ppl in japan are coming to my blog more, though i haven't been posting anymore than usual (less actually!!). yeyyyy. URESHII....^_^ minna-chan, arigatou ne!! *bows* heehee....=D

here's a quick summary of toma's recent msgs, from Toma No Heya vol.371-376 (june 30 to july 16). (thanks to mizza for her translations!!) he cried when he watched okada's (japan's soccer team coach) interview and he thanks him. toma also cried when the opposing team scored during the penalty shootout. he was upset when japan lost, but he's so moved by this world cup! he talked about how the hanamizuki preview screening was finally happening (and everyone, please come too), and kept reminding every1 to watch Unubore at 10pm. =) on a sunny day, he said he would rather bask under the sun (instead of filming, i guess). and he talked about how he's attending an opening ceremony at akasaka sacas with aragaki yui-chan. everyone can come and join them too...

(THAT HANAMIZUKI TREE!!! ~___~ SOOOO cool...and pretty!!! credit: in the pic. thanks to mizza 4 sharing!)

LOL!! xDDD awww....toma.....u should have let her touch that button/switch too ne....xD

“Hanamizuki” makes your want to believe in miracles (Aragaki, Ikuta attend private showing)

Upcoming movie “Hanamizuki“, starring Aragaki Yui and Ikuta Toma held a private showing on the 8th. This movie took ideas from the lyrics of Hitoto Yo’s masterpiece “Hanamizuki“.

Yui said, “The movie makes you want to believe in miracles.” A partner of Yui, Ikuta Toma also said, “It’s quite shameless to compliment the movie I’m in, but it is a great movie.”

The shooting of the movie was held in Hokkaido, Tokyo, New York, and Canada.

“Hanamizuki” will be released on August 21st.
