(thanks to anonymous 4 the link!)


(this is the message i wrote a few days ago, for everyone in japan!)

i'm really afraid for the people in japan!!
i always dream of going there, and it's such an amazing, beautiful country, but now...the videos, pictures, and continuous bad news coming from japan are just unbelievable and very sad. it just makes me wanna cry. =,(

luckily toma was really far away from the earthquake (he's still in osaka cuz of his plays), but if something terrible happens at the nuclear power plant, many people in japan and even other countries nearby could be harmed. it's so frustrating to see that the situation gets worse everyday, but no one can really do anything about it. but i'm still hoping for a miracle...

so many of us all over the world are praying for japan! i hope toma and his family and friends and all toma fans and everyone in japan will be ok!!! please be strong and be safe!!

i'm sure everyone has been waiting for toma's message...well, this is what he said just yesterday! toma's been performing as usual even though all these disasters have been going on in northern japan and tokyo...i checked the schedule, and toma had a 7pm show on mar.11, so he was probably rehearsing for it when the earthquake happened...

(thanks to strawberry_gemm for posting and tika_veilan for translating! u can see the original message [+comments from relieved fans] from toma's page at the johnnys website posted here: http://community.livejournal.com/ikuta_toma/672046.html)

Message from Toma Ikuta (March 15, 2011)

There was a big earthquake and there are many people who suffered from it.
Everyone, are you alright?

I'm very worried.

Every time I watch TV or read newspapers, my heart aches.

I'm in Osaka for my stage play so I haven't suffered any injures.

For people who were worried about me, thank you so much.

For now the only thing I can do is to put my best into my performances.

I think everyone who comes to the theater to see us perform has a lot on their mind.
Maybe there are also people who can't come due to some circumstances.

For those people too,

I will put everything I have into my performance!

This is the most important thing I can do right now!

With this thought I will stand on the stage every day.

Everyone, if only to cheer you up a little bit, I want to continue to do my best until the final performance.

Right now, there are many regions where conservation of energy is necessary.
Everyone, if we cooperate we definitely can help others.
Gathering our strength, all together lets overcome this difficult time.

From the bottom of my heart I wish all of you, your family and friends are safe.

Ikuta Toma

..........summary of toma's messages from the end of feb.-start of march:
(credit: mizza, jessica, troom. for the full messages, go to toma's room -the posts are members locked though-)

he enjoys performing everyday. he'll take care of himself. sorry for the boring entry... there was a happy ending to the tokyo shows. toma thanks everyone who came to see them at the theatre and also those who could not come. he says performing at the Cocoon theatre is one of his "precious experiences". for the last hitler show, 10 of his actor friends and sempais showed up to watch! toma was really happy and energized because of their presence, though it felt like a fantasy for him. =P of course, hanamizuki is now on dvd and bluray, he really likes this movie, so please support.


..............................................hanamiz kisses!!

MANY MANY THANKS to rae_el for sharing these gifs with me. it's 2 passionate kissing scenes from hanamiz! uwaaaaaaaa....*blush* toma should do more passionate kissing scenes!! fufu..
