(credit: ingenjimode) hey everyone!!! ~_~ sorry it's been so long since i updated! almost 1 whole month!! =0 it's cuz there was nothing going on with toma for a long time, then suddenly this flood of new stuff cuz of genji promo!!!!!!!!!
(even though i don't update here often, remember to check my cbox here, visit my tumblr page (tomaroom.tumblr.com) and my toma's room community (toma-room.livejournal.com) for the most up-to-date news about toma!!!!!!!!!!! ♡♡)
OMG, IT'S PREMIERE TIME FOR GENJI TODAY IN JAPAN!!!! ^___^ THE MOVIE IS BEING RELEASED IN THEATRES TODAY, IT'S DECEMBER 10 IN JAPAN TIME!!!! I ALMOST FORGOT. LOL. I WISH I COULD WATCH IT SO BADDDDDDD. BUT I'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT. =/
before i continue, i wanna say real quick that we're still having a SLEEPOVER AT TOMA'S ROOM!! xD to celebrate the 1st anniversary (on Dec.6). we're doing memes, voting on a poll, talking about other fandoms and pj's and having some confessions too. COME JOIN US AND HELP US REACH 100 COMMENTS!!!! :D :D :D
SO..... IN THE LAST 2 WEEKs OR SO, SUDDENLY A TON OF NEW TOMA STUFF, AND I'VE TRIED MY BEST TO COVER IT ALL. (i guess there will a lot more news for a while, so i'll try to update again in a week or 2, i guess...) IT'S ALL REALLY EXCITING AND I REALLY THINK THAT GENJI COULD BE A BIG HIT MOVIE, BUT why doesn't toma cut his hair?????? i guess toma has a good reason for not getting a haircut yet (upcoming role requires long hair??), but his hair looks so plain and boring recently. =T also makes him look older. it's soooo distracting...he should look his best when promoting this movie, right?? not like a guy that really needs a haircut/new stylist (or at least needs his bangs trimmed!! lol). HE IS STILL REALLY CUTE ON MOST OF HIS TV APPEARANCES AND MAGAZINE PICS, BUT STILL.....!! HAIRCUT TIME!!! xD
well, it was kinda like this too, when he was promoting ningen, except the events/tv show appearances were more evenly spread out i think. it's a little overwhelming this time, but it makes up for the BARELY ANY NEW TOMA NEWS OR VIDEO CLIPS for most of this year. lol. and i think it's easier 2 catch up with toma stuff since there's tumblr...? BUT THESE DAYS...TOMA MUST BE SUPER EXHAUSTED FROM ALL THIS STUFF + traveling around a lot!!! WHEW....gambatte, toma!!
I LOVE SEEING PICS OF TOMA (like on magazines)/HIS MOVIE POSTER EVERYWHERE WHEN IT'S THE PROMO PERIOD FOR TOMA'S MOVIE. ^______^
BOKURA GA ITA TRAILER IS OUT!!! :D:D:D
watch it at these links:
Bokura Ga Ita Movie Trailer
[eng subbed] Bokura ga Ita trailer
gifs of sweet moments from the trailer:
wow…..all the excitement over this movie!!!! (see the comments at arama and all over tumblr and this person's post: http://tomaroom.tumblr.com/post/13934069569/kazus-afjkjdfajlfdj-bokura-ga-ita-movie-trailer) :D :D mostly from the people who love the manga so much. i really hope they’ll approve of the movie after they watch it!! such high expectations!!! i guess this movie is supposed to follow the manga closely and have the same ending, so hopefully everyone will be happy with it.
but where's lalami??? yano's doggie. i read a few chapters of the manga and i loveeeee lalami. personally, i still don't think yuriko suits the look of nanami....she doesn't look like...right for the part?? but i guess i'll just have to wait and see. toma looks awesome as yano though. *__*
BAD NEWS RECENTLY!!! =(
TOMA WILL NO LONGER BE IN WINKUP/DUET/POTATO EACH MONTH (except if he has something to promote)!!!!!!!! T___________T
go here for more info:
(thanks to hideko_ikuta for telling us the news from early on!!)
i don't know why they're doing this??!!! =[
i thought only when he's 30, it'll happen. but it's suddenly happening now, and i'm really sad/mad about it!!! i was hoping toma would be on the cover of winkup or duet during this genji promo period and have a nice big poster inside too, but it's not gonna happen. (i guess it's still possible in the future, though.) AND I THINK he won't be in myojo or popolo each month anymore either, because those count as idol magazines too, right? at least in the summer issue that i bought of popolo this year, only sho had a photoshoot 2 promote something and there was no arashi group photoshoot.
................ about toma's tv appearances!!!
http://tomaroom.tumblr.com/post/13649704088/ingenjimode-awwwww-toma-on-gout-temps [toma being embarrassed or laughing on 2 tv shows...CUTE!!!!!!♡♡♡♡ (gifs)]
TOMA HAS BEEN ON TONS OF TV SHOWS AND MAGAZINES LATELY!!! A LOT MORE THAN FOR NINGEN PROMOTION TIME!! *_* i'm happy about it, but it's hard to keep up with all this stuff!!! O__O here's some cute news about toma's reply to a dating question. haha... i wish there were a little bit of news about toma's most interesting tv interviews/appearances on shows, cuz TFS is still on hiatus, and i'll have no idea what toma's saying in any of these shows, and there are sooo many!! T_T
Toma Ikuta breaks a sweat from dating question
....................ALSO, TOMA GAVE EVERYONE A SHOCK
WHEN HE SEEMED TO KISS A GUY ON A TV SHOW!!!!!
i first saw the screencaps here...and it looked like a fake kiss, but still....!!!!! so shocking!!!!!!! WHYYYYY???!! xDDDDDDDD
after a lot of discussion of why couldn't that be yamashita?!! (LOL!) and everyone made gifs of it....tadaaaaa! IT REALLY WAS JUST A PRETEND KISS. hehehe...
thanks to kavya, you can see screencaps +
watch the whole tv show online here. toma only got close to his face. xD
[DL the show here!! and there's another toma clip there too.]
i skipped through a lot of it, but i loved the part where toma was eating the curry rice and he looked up for a moment when the fans were cheering and smiled and laughed a little before he continued eating. *_* awwwwwwww. ~_________~
and this part was funny/weird!! xD but toma got hit (not really! just pretend! xD)!!
------------------- what i'm most happy about are these two shows....
"Toma is gonna be on Gout Temps Nouveau..(that show where those ladies last time kept touching his cheeks to see how soft it is.. xDD) check this link.. it airs on 30th Nov at 11 pm (JST) yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! :D" (kavya-chan wrote that)
http://tomaroom.tumblr.com/post/13323396085/ingenjimode-toma-is-gonna-be-on-gout-temps [some screencaps kavya posted from it here]
and the arashi show (which i didn't watch his appearance on it last yr, i think cuz the file was so huge and no subs. lol. so i'm looking forward to this!! whoo hoo!!)
[see a bunch of gifs of it here]
(dang, he is the cutest when he's happy n hyper,
even though his hair is meh...xD)

.............this seems like such a long time ago now,
but back on November 15, toma and the actress from the genji movie were at an xmas lighting ceremony!!! ^__^ i love seeing toma at all these big events!! and i wrote about toma and i going to this place to look at the xmas lights in my fic a few years ago, so i think it's so awesome that toma got to do this. hehe. AND of course, just like toma, he joked about feeling like he should ask her out cuz it was so pretty and romantic there. hahaha... oh, and toma also said "the movie is as sparkling as the illumination. So please watch it.” (credit: tokyohive)
Toma Ikuta and Miki Nakatani light up this year’s Christmas illuminations in Tokyo Midtown [news/pics + link to watch the video!]

.......... toma's MESSAGES
(credit: hideko_ikuta and tfgirls)
i've summarized most of his recent entries, but if you want to read the others/the original messages you can read them at these links. ~_~
-vol. 457: toma went to a photoshoot for Genji wearing a Red Hot Chili Peppers t-shirt. xD
-vol. 458: he's been really busy because he has to appear on so many television shows and he feels like he doesn't even have time to go home much. =/
-vol. 459: he got a lot of questions from people for his corner, Toma's Garden, and he thanks everyone, but he has no time to read them all. he thanks the people who came to he kyoto premiere of Genji. He will start going to many different places to promote the movie, so please wait for him to come...
-vol. 461 (nov. 22): he had a successful theater event at fukuoka and thanks everyone who were there. he's really happy about it and loves to see so many people. but it's so cold there, so he hopes he won't get sick.
-vol. 462 (nov. 26): done promoting the movie in hokkaido. he thanks everyone. they were there for a long time, but he had a nice time because it's his hometown. after all, it's a fun place to be.
