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!!

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!!♥♥
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.
