OH, BEFORE I FORGET, TFS RELEASED EP.S 10 AND 11!! did you know? did you finish? u probably did. i only have ep.11 left. almost there....!!

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!!

(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:

(btw, u can see gakky's super cute toyota CM here: youtube.com/watch?v=MxKvlvAOHgM) hehe. I'M SO HAPPY HE'S DOING CM'S FOR MORE AND MORE FAMOUS COMPANIES NOW!! and his co-star in the CM is really famous too, i think. gomen, i dunno his name! xD

toma and a bunch of other JE guys recorded special xmas messages and the videos are posted up at the official johnnys website. ^___^ toma was reading a list of the dates of his play, or movie or drama. haha. he had to stop and look closely at the list for a moment during the video. SO CUTE!! ~____~

................. 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."

Hey, saw the new LJ comm. Banner suits the name ~ looks like he is at home and comfy.

And I see the latest batch of photoshoots - is that a perm coming back ~ kinda grizzly, not curly, but like a half-way growing-out-f perm look...hmmm. kinda reminds me of when Yamapi was doing his Buzzer Beat hair (looks like it's wet, bit shaggy yet not curly...

kate♥toma said...

paige,

i love the banner too! xD mizza found it.

you're right about his hair! lol...it does kinda look like yamapi's in buzzer beat. i like it...as long as it's not too curly. xD

HI KATE!!!! It's been forever since I've been here and I see that a lot has happened. I feel so out of the loop ;~;
Hectic school schedule. I had to write 5 different papers in one week. You can see why I haven't visited in such a long time.
I clicked to join the community! I definitely love the layout ^^

While reading your post, I found a mistake. You wrote that mizza's birthday is on November 30th, the same day as Ohno's. You got the month right, but the day wrong. Ohno's birthday is on November 26th. I don't mean to rude, I swear! I just saw that and I didn't want you to give people false information and then get in trouble for it ._.

Anyway, hope you'll accept my request to join Toma's Room at LJ! I'm excited to see what'll happen next!!!

-Marie
