toma sang on SDK!! also, his brother got married!! and osawari finished airing...

GAH!! >_< i was just done editing my post at LJ, but then LJ suddenly stopped working. i will have 2 wait till tomorrow when it's working again to copy and paste my post here. sorry, everyone. =T

hi everyone,
it's Dec. 31, i made it on time this month!! i always feel down around the end of the year, but by new year's eve, i'm usually excited for a new year. a new ME! lol. not exactly, but i'm hoping this year will be 100 times better than last year, and that i get to do more things that i want to do. hmm... HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!! *_* i hope it's a good year for toma and his fans. v(^_^)v

i know it's past xmas, but in case you're still in an xmas mood xD, here's an awesome christmas lights show set to music, which i shared here: (also, since it's almost new years, i made a new grey layout for toma's room yesterday! yey!!! come check it out!! ~_~)

i talked about + shared pics of the sakura scented bath roman bath salts and some xmas stuff here. :)
SAKURA BATH ROMAN!! ~_~ + xmas cookies 4 me + xmas decorations at mitsuwa...

and when i've finished ep.s 4-6, i'll talk about them here:
Osawari, episodes 4-6. some screencaps and comments...

actually, this is bad, but for the 1st time ever, i wonder if i should keep watching toma’s drama? O_O i feel guilty that i don’t like it like most people (i didn’t like BRI 1 and 2 either), but the pace is very slow, the stories are boring and preachy, and i don’t really care about any of the characters, except maybe kenta’s. sighhhh. i guess i’ll keep watching for now, but i might have to start fast forwarding some parts. >.< I REALLY HOPE I’LL LIKE NOU OTOKO. seems like i didn’t like any of toma’s main projects this year!! gahhh..

OH, I ADDED AN OSAWARI POLL ABOVE THIS POST. PLEASE VOTE!! it seems like everyone loves this drama, but i think there must be more people like me, who don't?? and it's been forever since i've posted a poll here, so....i'll try to remember to make polls here sometimes from now on to keep things interesting here! hehe.

........................ toma's messages♥
(i'll just talk about some of the interesting things toma said in his jweb here, but remember if you want to read his full messages, go to! ~_~)

toma is sad that his drama has ended and he thanks everyone who watched it. he's really happy that Osozaki no Himiwari won a cultural award, too. and he wishes everyone a merry christmas and happy new year!

.............................................. toma news, links, etc. from December ♥

......................OMG, TOMA'S BROTHER GOT MARRIED!!! O.O
he announced that he got married on dec. 25. his wife also is a tv news announcer who works in the same place he does, and she's 29. apparently they only dated 6 months before they got married??!! WOW.... i'm surprised he got married so fast. he's only 24! well, i hope they'll have a happy marriage and have some cute kids soon!
hopefully this won't make toma want to get married too!! haha. so many people he knows got married this year. jin, shun, now his brother...

here's the news about toma congratulating them:

................. TOMA SANG A SONG ON DOMOTO KYOUDAI!! ^_^

toma was on VS Arashi and All Night Nippon!! =D new Nou Otoko trailer & TOMA'S ROOM's 2nd anniv.!! *_*

(i'm going to post up the monthly entry a little late...please be patient! ~_~)

ok, so it's dec. 11. sorry for the delay!! this time, i thought i might as well include december stuff in this post, so EVERYTHING TOMA-related that's happened recently is pretty much included in this post, ok? you're welcomeee!! xD (and merry xmas, in case i forget to say it here later!! ^_~)

 i hope you like the new winter/snowing banner! ~_~ i also found 4 other great winter/snow pics that i might use for the 2nd winter banner later. (credit:,

oh, i bought a tin of Bath Roman bath salts!! the brand that toma promotes!! i've always taken showers instead of baths, so i really enjoyed the nice warm bath in the green, peach leaf-scented water!! i posted some pics of what the box looks like and the powder and the color of the water later at my LJ, here:

also, i made a new blue/winter layout for Toma's Room!! please do check it out! ~.~ AND ON DEC. 6, TOMA'S ROOM TURNED 2 YEARS OLD!! ~__~ go here to celebrate with us!! vote on the poll and comment!! thanks!!

and TFGirls have subbed up to episode 4 of osawari, but i still have only watched ep. 1!! (i also haven't watch toma on vs arashi or listened to his ANN show!! -__-) good grief...o_o i will find time to watch more episodes soon and i will post some screencaps and comment a little on each episode at my LJ. so check this post later, for my 1st post about it (covering eps. 1-3)! =)

........................ toma's messages♥
(i'll just talk about some of the interesting things toma said in his jweb here, but remember if you want to read his full message, go to! ~_~)

he said that the nou otoku movie post-production is now done and he's nervous about that. he said something about how he loves his job because he can work with a lot of different good actors/actresses, like maki yoko. and he wondered if people like the 3rd episode of osawari, because it's his favorite (and there's a kissing scene in it!). he mentioned that he was a guest on the Domoto Kyodai, which he hasn't been on since 3 years ago. back then, their band played a song by elephant kashimashi for him. he keeps reminding everyone to watch his drama, like usual. xD

and toma's xmas/new year message on JFC is the standard one that most japanese stars say. something about becoming a better person/growing wiser next year. -_-

it's NOVEMBER 16!! @__@ i'm sorry i'm posting the monthly post so late! if only it didn't take me so long to watch BRI Part 2. cuz i had to watch it before i went back to toma's tag on tumblr, which was full of spoilers. O_O but i didn't like the movie, so i kind of regret not reblogging toma stuff for a month just because of it. -__- i tried to keep things simple/leave out some things, so gathering stuff + writing this post wouldn't take forever...enjoy! ~.~ (as always, remember you can go to the Toma's Room LJ or the ikuta toma tag at tumblr for the latest toma updates! also, i usually remember to post important toma news in my cbox here!! xD)

(i love my current colorful icons @LJ!!!!! :D)

toma thanked everyone who wished him a happy bday.♥ read toma's bday message here, thanks to himawariyusuke!

toma didn't talk about anything very interesting this month, except for his birthday. he said they had a birthday party for him on the set and he was happy that the cast of his drama could be there with him. =) and he talked a lot about Osawari, of course, reminding everyone to watch it and enjoy. on the night the 1st episode aired, he said something like naughty people who are outside so late, go home (to watch his drama)! haha! also, he mentioned how he was so surprised that he got the chance to sing the opening song! ~.~

TOMA AND THE CAST OF OSAWARI SANG THE OPENING SONG!!!!!! `*:;,。・ヽ♪(●^o^●)ヮイヮイ丿丿♪`*:;,。・ヽ it's a cover of Anata Ni, by Mongol800. the rumor was true! this would be the first time toma's recorded a song in the studio since Cat in the Red Boots, 6 years ago!! everyone was really happy and excited about it!!!!!! a lot of fangirl screaming and crying!!!

--go here to see how us fans at Toma's Room reacted to this awesome news!! (also you can DL the video clip of the opening here!)

THE BAD NEWS is that the song is not included on the drama's soundtrack. x_x but at least you can still get the mp3! thanks to kavya for giving me these links and thanks to thariamon and keiko_artemis for sharing these clips with us! ~__~

(toma @press conference for osawari. credit: bespeckledcupcake)

...............Episode 1 of Osawari has been subbed!!
get it here:

i have watched episode 1 and i think it's ok. toma's character is like most of the roles he's had before, your basic nice, cheerful guy. i like the cranky doctor lady (sorry, don't remember anyone's names yet). lol. i love strong female characters. and i like how she's a bit sarcastic and antisocial and not trying to fit in and be all happy and perky like most of the other characters. i can really relate to characters like that because i'm quite sarcastic and cynical. i just don't show it much online. hahaha...

unlike with toma's previous dramas, i probably will not be posting comments and screencaps from the episodes after i watch them. ^^; it's too time-consuming, and i don't think i'll have much to say about this drama, i guess. maybe sometimes i'll comment about it on my cbox on the right, though.

(as toma's character's little brother!! xD)

--gifs of the scene, thanks to kavya! 

--translation of the news report about their scene and ryuusei's and toma's comments about filming it, thanks to himawariyusuke! 

--news about them filming the scene and their comments about each other:

toma on various tv shows promoting Osozaki no Himawari. if you want to watch them, there are some that you can download at the toma's room LJ. just go there and browse and you'll find them. remember, these posts are members-locked. OH, THIS IS REALLY CUTE, THOUGH...RYUUSEI HAD TO INTERVIEW TOMA AND HE CALLED TOMA "IKUTA-SAN". SINCE HE DID SO, TOMA ALSO CALLED HIM THAT, BUT THE STAFF WERE LIKE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE SO FORMAL. SO, TOMA IMMEDIATELY GRABBED HIS BROTHER BY THE SHOULDER AND THEY LAUGHED. awwwww!! ~__~ i dunno where u can watch this video, only seen screencaps.

(if you're curious about the toma shooting an arrow and the "toma peed on me!" parts, go to the links below to DL the video clip/for more info about it!!

the ratings have been pretty low so far. toma's dramas rarely get high ratings. =(

--here are a bunch of nice pics taken on the set of Osawari!

the nou otouko official website was updated with the official poster and teaser!

(they recently released the full trailer, but i'll talk about that in the next post, since it happened in nov. and not oct. you can watch it at the official website now, just click on the 1st button on the right!! the bloody parts and that psycho girl are creepy, but omg, sexy shirtless toma!!!! *_* i was hoping there would be a shirtless scene so toma could show off his more muscular body after 6 months of training!! i'm so glad there's at least 1 shirtless scene! hehe...)

--watch the cool 30 second teaser:

--check out the updated website:

i wish i had found this earlier!!  i think it might be the best autumn picture i've ever used for my banner! i love the bright, bold colors of the leaves!! it's just too perfect. ~__~ (i used a blue heart this time instead of a text heart. took a long time 2 get it right though! but i like this kinda heart better. ~.~ also, i still remember from art class that orange goes with blue. hehehe. it does, doesn't it? )

and i found these 4 other really pretty autumn pics from kyoto!! i love how they have lighter autumn colors, some almost peach-colored. absolutely beautiful!! *___*
