happy birthday, TL-chan!!!!!! ~__~
(it's still early, but i couldn't wait. xD)
i'm soooooo proud of TL-chan and even though
these days, i spend more time at the toma's room LJ,
i will always love TL-chan the most!! she's like my baby. heehee.
i'm so happy that so many people still come to my blog
and that it often shows up in search engines when you search for toma!!
i used to wish that toma would come here if my blog got popular enough, but now i'm just happy enough knowing that so many toma fans love my blog and come here often. especially new toma fans! just recently, i said to a new fan, she should check out my blog, and gureisu said she already found it when she googled toma and that i have really cool stuff there. awwwww. ~___~ arigatoooo!!
thanks to my clustr map, i know that there are toma fans everywhere in the world!! even places like iceland and latvia. i think that's amazing~~ ^_^ from 2007 until now, i've had over 132,000 visits!!! and this is my 488th post. and i have 146 followers now! wahhh....*_*
i will keep trying to keep everyone updated with what toma's doing...i love toma very much and i'll keep supporting him and fangirling!! please enjoy all the toma things hereeee!! *^-^*and please leave me comments sometimes!! xD

thank you~ from the bottom of my heart!!♥
and please keep supporting this blog and toma. v(^_^)v
i sent toma's birthday card on sept. 13. ~__~ this is the 4th year i sent him a birthday card. it was exciting to know it was on it's way to japan!! (i know it's silly, but i'll miss card-chan. =T i always get attached 2 things too easily. *sighh*) i sent it quite early, but that's cuz it might take 1-2 wks to get there + after that they have to sort it before giving it to him. i hope the card will safely reach him. inside it is a lot of love...sweet messages from myself and other toma fans! <3 thanks to the 13 people that wrote messages for him!! =)
i took a lot of pics of card-chan and closeups of everyone's messages. ~_~ take a look! they're all **HERE**.
(btw, if u need toma's fanmail address, i posted it here:
.......... toma's new VITZ CM!!
memo-toma uploaded toma's new Vitz CM here...^_^
or you can watch it here...
it's sooooooo nice to see a new toma video after SOOOO LONG!!!!! and he's so~ cute, the part in the car at the end....~_~
.................. toma's short movie for MARCHING J
go here for more info:
Ikuta Toma on Marching J Special Movie
Ikuta Toma on Marching J Special Movie
most of the money you spend (US$4.11) to watch the video (it's around 3 minutes long) will go to the earthquake relief effort. of course, besides toma, there are a bunch of other videos by other johnnys artists. it's a nice idea so you can help out even if you're not in japan, but i wish there were english subs on the videos!
........... Johnny's web App for Smartphones. *_* buy it to get toma's entries!
you can now access toma's blog or other johnnys' artists' jweb blogs on your smartphone no matter where you live in the world!!! *_* you can pay with your credit card, and it will cost around US$4.11 each month to access all the jwebs and special videos.
strawberry_gemm posted the info here, including a link to translated directions.
aww......I WANT TO GET TOMA's ENTRIES ON MY PHONE!!!! =o
but i don't have a smart phone and it's quite expensive
since i'm only interested in toma's, and i can't read japanese, so....lol. but i hope that some of you will be able to get it!!! ^_____^

Genji monogatari promotions has begun. he asks us to please also promote this movie!

he spent the whole day watching Maximum the hormone's LIVE DVD and thinks it's very cool.
(Note: I like rice more than the three meals, a quote from Maximum the hormone)

...................... random toma-related things
i was able to find the ONLY we were there (bokura ga ita) manga book at book-off!!! soooooo lucky!!!!!! ^____^
Can J-Pop replicate success of K-Pop?
(i dunno if japan really needs to try to appeal to people in other countries, but i guess it can't hurt? they should definitely try to get more popular in asia at least!! and i totally agree that johnnys is too strict and backwards regarding how to promote their artists!! let them have twitter, facebook, etc.!! let them post up pics of themselves...have preview clips of their MVs, dramas on youtube WITH eng. subtitles to get more people worldwide to know about them!!!!!! *_*)
--i wanna share these old CUTE CUTE TOMA GIFS at tumblr
