TOMA & FF! Never thought it would happen. I seriously imploded when I saw the commercial yesterday. He didn't get to debut with a band, which I dislike Johnny for, but man is on fire with his acting/CM career. \o/

IKUTA TOMA IN FINAL FANTASY
At yesterday’s promotional event for the new Final Fantasy game it was announced Toma Ikuta (25) would be starring in the game’s commercial, reports Mainichi Shinbum Digital.

With more than 970 million copies sold worldwide, the TV ad for the latest Final Fantasy series installment, Final Fantasy 14, depicts Ikuta in an armour costume as he goes off on an adventure with his avatar friends.

The star revealed he had been a fan of the series for years.

“I’ve been playing Final Fantasy since I was at primary school.

“I was really excited to be inside the Final Fantasy world. There was so much attention to detail on my armour it got me hyped up and it was a lot of fun,” he said.

Ikuta also revealed he got hooked on online gaming while playing Final Fantasy 11.

“I used to sacrifice my sleeping time and just kept playing it,” he said.

While trying out Final Fantasy 14 at yesterday’s event, Ikuta had plenty to say about it.

“First of all, the graphics are amazing! Getting a team together online, and going out and fighting monsters together is a big part of Final Fantasy 14. I hope everyone gets fired up with their friends,” he said.

Ikuta’s TV commercial has both 15 and 30 second versions, and will go on air in Japan from September 22. Final Fantasy XIV for Windows will go on sale from September 30 while the PS3 version is scheduled to be released in March 2011.

OMEDETOU, TOMA!! ^O^
CONGRATULATIONS!!!
(wow!! and me and mizza were just recently talking about how we wish toma could be in more cool CMs, especially NON-food CMs. xD)

uwaaaaaaaaaaa......
i'm just soooooo happy for toma!!!!!!! ^o^
this is seriously awesome. it's toma's first time being involved in something so incredibly popular all over the world. even though this CM is only for japan, but it's so amazing that he gets to promote this super popular game!!!! i just love the idea of more and more ppl seeing toma (and been blown away by his hotness!!) and maybe becoming his fan cuz of this CM!!! probably TONS of FF fans all over the world have seen this CM by now!!!!!! wahhhh.....SUGOI!! ^___^ i've never played any of these games, but it seems cool. i love the music from these games though. and i've watched some FF fanmade MVs and the movies...hehe. ehhhhh....recently, it's like every other week, there's some AWESOME toma news. i'm looking forward to the next big announcement!! lol. (COME ON, TOMA PHOTOBOOK!!!!! XDDDDD)

toma looks sooooooooooo HOT in his costume....with his toned arms, the tight-fitting top, the boots, the armor and holding the big sword and everything!!♥♥♥ getting ready to fight! omggg.....first thing that came to my mind was "a knight in shining armor"!!! and the fake scars they gave him!! wow. it just makes him look even hotter??!!! fufufu. (but he's getting so skinny!! =T) i LOVE LOVE his cool, braided on 1 side hair. kyaaaaaa!! ♥__♥ they should have done a mini photoshoot for him that day, in that costume!!! toma did say something like they took lots of pictures....hmm....i'd love to see all the official pics from that day!! (i guess u can see some at the unleashthegeek post that i linked to below!)

actually, i just realized that this Hyur warrior guy looks kinda like keunu reeves!!! right?? heehee. oh, info about this game here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_XIV

AND 3 BIG PICS FROM THE CM MAKING OF!!!
kyaaaaa!! *O*
http://unleashthegeek.blogspot.com/2010/09/ikuta-toma-is-cm-character-for-final.html

besides downloading the video clips at the LJ links i posted below, u can watch the CM and making of video at H's youtube page, and of course, at the Square Enix page. but i dunno the link to it. xD (oh, wait, this is it, but i still dunno how to navigate it 2 find the trailer. haha. http://jp.finalfantasyxiv.com/)


-heroic, getting-ready-to-fight toma is cool, but i like pretty/cute/boyish toma more. hehe....the behind the scenes video where we see toma in fanboy mode, in awe of the costumes, the sword....and so happy he can help promote this super popular game....awwww.....~____~ ka~waii!!

-LOVE LOVE LOVE toma's cool hair and cool outfit for the promotional event. and LOVEEEE the cool blue FF garden or something in the background!!!! his hair is kinda like how it was for the ningen press conference and kinda like in some of his past butai's....2 gentlemen of verona, endless shock, or azumi. OMG.....i just love it when toma pins up his hair in a girly/cool way. ^////^ (btw, i wrote about/posted pics of a bunch of toma's different hairstyles last year!! check it out: http://ikutatomalove.blogspot.com/2009/05/toma-looks-awesome-with-almost-any.html)

Definately feeling like the pre-order for this game should include "One Ikuta Toma". 'Caaaause I would totally buy it then.

...........AND THIS IS WHAT TOMA WROTE
ABOUT THIS CM.... ~___~


Toma's room
9/15 vol. 393

Hi everybody.
It's my pleasure to be in Final Fantasy 14's CM.

Oh my god! FF is men's romance! Romance flight!!
Speaking of which, I'm under a lot of pressure, I don't know what I'm talking about.
Carving a very fine spot.
I wanted to say this, but i said the word 'Fine' for 10 times. (laughs)
I guess I'm too nervous.
Really! No matter how you look at, It's very very beautiful!
I was wearing an armor during the shoot, the quality is really good, we kept taking pictures of it.
Really, I'm glad. I've been a fan of FF since primary, it's really awesome.

You can see the CM and Making on Square Enix's homepage,
Please check it out.

It's very cool.

Even if you haven't played it online before, you will be obsessed with it after playing it with friends.
I spent the whole night playing the previous FF!

Please support.

.............. TOMA'S ROOM entries summary:
(credit: jessica, mizza)

hanamizuki promotional activities have come to an end... and so has unubore. he asks everyone to please watch the last episode. he really had so much fun filming this drama for the past 3 months! next up, Tale of Genji! he'll work really hard. toma went to a SMAP concert and takuya kimura gave him some strength (战斗的斗 ->in chinese it means Fight. 斗=Toma. thanks to jessica for the explanation. i love how toma's name means fight in chinese. hehe.) by patting him on the back. xD cuz of this, he'll have energy to fight for the future. he'll work really hard.

"Good bye, Unubore Deka." they danced together in the end. they all got an Unubore t-shirt with nagase-kun's conceited face on it. =P but toma was the only one to wear it to the party after filming finished. maybe cuz they already wore it be4 that, so it was dirty. (lol!!! this kinda thing always happens to toma!! xD) he met many wonderful people in unubore, so he won't lose to them, he has to work really hard. on sept.20, filming started for the Genji movie. (wow!!! i'm so excited/worried about this movie...!!) he will work hard. (he used the wrong character when writing something in this message on purpose, cuz gohei in Hanamizuki often wrote the wrong words. awwww!!! kawaii!! and i miss seeing gohei already...=T)

(seeing him in this CM made me think of 3 of my fav toma + a sword moments. i think that's a pic of him and a black sword's blade?? and the sword-fighting part in cat in the red boots was so cool!! and of course he looks so sexy in that pic...promoting for azumi, i think, which also had sword-fighting!)

Ah, no Hanamizuki movie for me, I don't live in that state.

Ah, already going into October. I loved your birthday drawings last year.
