toma went to HAWAII !! :D genji was #5....toma on TONS of tv shows (some subbed!)....bunch of toma's msgs!!

(lol. they play a trick on toma when he's on the bus with the host!! credit: kavya)

heyyyyyyyy everyoneeeeeee!! ^_~
sorry for my lateness in updating.
more toma stuff kept showing up so...
FINALLY, 1st POST OF THE YEAR. YEY!!!!!! v(^_^)v
(wow, this is post #454!!! ~____~
what should i do 2 celebrate the 500th post? hmm...)

like i said in my cbox, i needed a break from toma fangirling so i took a 2 week break in december. but after that i had 2 catch up with everything. luckily not much toma stuff except for all the posts at tumblr and had 2 watch some of his tv show appearances...


(sorry, i dunno why i can't change the font color or size of the text, so everything looks so boring. o_O stupid blogger........T______T)

so...i was lucky enough 2 get a toma magazine with him on the cover and a poster of him inside!!!!! MY WISH CAME TRUE!! :D:D:D it was the best xmas gift i could give myself, really! lolllllll. i talked about it at my LJ and posted some pics. also, i had a sweet dream about nakatsu recently and also wrote about it at my LJ. if you're interested, go to the links below! douzoooo!! xD

i got a toma magazine with foldout!! <3 + late toma's room 1st anniv. celebration...

i dreamed about toma (nakatsu)!!!!♥♥♥♥


good grief, i think toma's hair looks like this right now. not sure when/where this pic was taken, but he was with yamashita. i just don't remember where that other pic is, but toma was so blurry in that pic anyway...but at least he's got a cute pose n expression in this pic. hehe.

with shun and his girlfriend and her family,

[video clip of the news about shun picking up toma at the airport in hawaii]

I knew he would go to hawaii again!!! xD so many japanese people vacation there...i wish i lived there!! i collected these comments that someone posted at tumblr about it... xD

--Toma arrives in Honolulu, Hawaii with Yamada Shintaro (Yamada Yu’s brother) and Shun fetches them.

--Seems Yu [shun's girlfriend] and her mother were in Hawaii too. Family trip! With Toma tagging along :D Can I come too?

................GENJI movie stuff

[red genji gif. that kiss!!!! wahhhh....]

toma's genji movie was 5th place at the box office for it's 1st weekend and then 7th for the second, and then it dropped below the top 10 for the 3rd weekend (xmas weekend). i thought being in the top 5 is already awesome, but i guess for a big budget, big deal movie like this, 5th is not good enough. =/ i guess it's not a big surprise, since those other movies are action movies, more people will see those...i guess bokura ga ita has a better chance of being a box office hit??? i really hope so!! *_*
Genji Monogatari is only #5 at the box office...
[go here to read why they said #5 is disappointing =T]
review of the genji movie that kavya posted, where it was given only 2.5 stars. =(

i don't know why i didn't see any news or pics of some kind premiere night event for genji? i guess maybe i missed something or the only main even was at the shrine back in november?? not sure... i also didn't see much toma pics from the stage greetings, except for this short video clip. =T but toma looks great here (his outfit), though he wasn't smiling when they were taking pics later....=T

...................... Bokura Ga Ita stuff
[more pics from bokura ga ita...the walking in the snow pic is nice!!]

........................................toma's MESSAGES

kavya's translation of toma's new yr message: vol. 472-
Everyone, thank you very much indeed for everything this year!
And thank you for your hard work!(otsukaresamadeshita)

We will continue working hard over the next year too.
Please share your kindness and regard.(yoroshiku onegaishimasu)
I sincerely pray that everyone can spend a bright and positive year.
2011.12.30 Ikuta Toma

i'm just paraphrasing what he said (except the parts in [ ] are the parts i am quoting the translation) should really read the messages as they were written originally, though!! ^_^

(credit: TFGirls. read all the translations of his entries #463-470 here:

(ALSO, I SKIPPED ENTRIES 469 AND 470 THIS TIME. FROM NOW ON, I'LL ONLY SUMMARIZE THE MOST IMPORTANT/INTERESTING/FUNNY ONES, cuz it takes too much time. =T i know i've said this many times be4, but this time i mean it!! xD unless there's like very few toma entries i guess..)

-Vol. 463 [Dec. 1]
He went to an old theater in shibuya. he got tired doing a dance (the name relates to the blue sea) that he had to do in the Tale of Genji movie. he did it last year and thought he'd never have to do it again. he couldn't remember the steps and had to practice a lot and was nervous while performing. luckily it went well.

after that he went to the Toyota Vitz Cup Kunitachi Women Soccer game. even though it was a tie, he was happy that Nadeshiko Japan were so united and had great team spirit. after the game, he met all the players who were very happy to meet him though they were tired. he had a surprise for them (i guess that congratulatory big key that he handed to 1 of the players?) that they really liked. he and the staff-san ate curry together and hung out (?) before going home.

now...his cellphone background is Nadeshiko Japan with himself (with a weird face) (lol, he did have a kind of stiff look in that key pic!). They are amazing.. [shining~~]

-vol. 464 [Dec. 3]
[It's time to go home from Osaka campaign.]
osaka is great!
they've been invited to some tv shows.
he thanks everyone who met them during the program.
[The atmosphere was warm]
and a toma tv show [Rasshiyu] will probably start.(??)
[have fun.]

-vol. 465 [Dec. 9]
soon, the Tale of Genji movie will be released everywhere in japan.
but you already know, right?

yesterday, he watched the hina&yoko show on tv. he was really happy to see them both after so long.
and on Himitsu no Arashi-chan with jun, there was going to be a competition with girls. he was really happy about that too..
and there is going to be a [festival(celebration)!]
it was aired on Bokura no ongaku with elephant kashimasi.
[festival.. festival!]
he hasn't seen it and he wants to.
after seeing Bokura no ongaku, he quickly went home to go to the theater the next day!!
[please support me...]

-vol. 466 [Dec. 12]
The tale of genji.
the first day.
[I felt so nervous.]
after the show (the movie?).
[The director and I kept on saying ‘It was tiresome, wasn’t it...
For everyone who has come, I’m so grateful...
The atmosphere was so warm.]
right now Genji Monogatari is showing in theatres.
he hopes you'll go watch it and
[have a fun day.
i hope so.]

-vol. 467 [dec. 12, 13]

he was taking a walk when two young girls ran up to him. they asked him if he was ikuta toma and he said yes. she tried not to show how nervous she started saying something about his movie. toma responded that yes, his movie is in theatres now. she said she's seen it. toma thanked her.
[she was] Really honest, really nice (laughs)
and then she said "take care..."

[While waving her hand and bowing with a genuine smile, I’m really touched.

Please tell your mother to watch it (Genji Monogatari).

And welcome to the adult world (laughs)

Thank you for being brave enough to come closer to me...]

(wow!!!!! i guess fans rarely are brave enough 2 come talk to him. especially such young girls!! ^_^ hehe...toma must have been surprised those girls went to watch that movie cuz it's more for adults. hopefully they know he wrote about them on his jweb!! :D:D:D "And welcome to the adult world." LOLLLLL!! i guess the movie must be like pg-13 though right, so it's ok? xD)

-vol. 468 [dec. 14]
he visited a high school where he got to teach students, which he never got to do before. it was unforgettable. he hopes the students also had a nice time. [The questionnaire that you’ve write to me was very-very funny...
I surely will read all of it.]

he was surprised when the staff from the Shizuoka high school read something from Wink Up to him. [I’m really impressed (laughs). Thank you very-very much.] the stage greeting at the theater was also great and they're (toma and the director) really happy about it.
[Thank you!
I will definitely come again.
Shizouka folks are very enthusiastic! I’m very pleased.
I want to come again!
Thank you!]

............................... random JAPAN news

bad news, the plan to give away 10,000 tickets for people
to come to japan was rejected (dec. 29). >_< here's the news:


paige said...

Toma in Hawaii!! I'm sure he would have a wonderful time again.
Probably hoping for privacy but I really liked thr short clip...heheh....I can't believe they were able to catch him (reporters know everything?!) getting picked up by Shun (they came for Toma and got a bonus Shun...and Yu's brother, whom I don't know of). Anyway, I love this pair of friends...wish they could do a drama together...!

Yes, the modern/traditional photo shoot was so cool. Toma can go for almost all looks/style!

kate♥toma said...

hi paige! i'm glad you still come 2 this toma blog sometimes! hehe. ^^

yeah, i wondered how they knew?? i think maybe it's just that a lot of J stars go on vacation there during the holidays and they just stake it out 2 see various celebs, and they just happened to see toma. xD

i think i'd like to see tomapi work together more, but yeah, it would be cool. xD i'd like to see shun playing a different kind of character though. seems like he's always the really cool/tough guy.

exactly!! amazing how toma can pull off all kinds of looks. *_*

lavagirl said...

thank you for this great post! I don't get to thank you(sorry!), but I do go to this site and check for your posts often.:D loved all the gif's in here, especially that one where he chose A. :))

by the way, has Toma starred in any TV dramas recently?

kate♥toma said...

hey lavagirl! thanks for commenting this time and coming here a lot!! hehe. yeahhhh i love that gif so much!!! <3 the last time was in unubore deka. everyone in the fandom is hoping he'll be in a drama soon!! O_O

kavya said...

your blogposts always contain a detailed and up-to-date collection of EVERYTHING toma.. it's so amazing.. i wish i could be half as organized as you in keeping together all the links i have to watch or download.. lol :D
and in hanamaru market, toma chose B.. the A thing was just the moment the advertisements were about to begin.. he changed it to B later.. he prefers waiting rather than making someone else wait for him(that's what i inferred from the photo :D)

kate♥toma said...

awww. thanks so much, kavya-chan!! *_* i guess only i am crazy enough to write about everything toma has been doing and linking to everything and posting up so many pics. lol. it takes me a long time 2 get it all together for each post, but i just want everyone to know everything that's going on. hehe...

u know what i do is, i collect different links gradually, and then when i'm ready 2 post, i go back and get all those links n pics n stuff and then i have to organize them all and then i post it up.

ohhh. right right. i forgot that he switched it to B later! gotta remember 2 edit my post for that part. of course toma would rather wait then making someone wait. he's such a nice and considerate person!! ^^

hanamichi0016 said...

oh no, i'm not into kpop or jpop or anything. i just listen to american music. hehe... i used to love cpop, but that was a long time ago. it's frustrating when u don't know what the lyrics mean, u know? i guess ppl translate them, but still....

thanks! but i dunno when the next time i'll be able to update this blog cuz i'm gonna be busy real soon. T______T but i'll keep updating my tumblr in the meantime, so u can keep coming there 2 see new toma stuff. also, i'll still post in my cbox here.... go to my newest post at my LJ for more info why i'll be so busy and can't fangirl so much like i used to..... >__<

kate♥toma said...

yeah, i love pink-chan so muchy!! ~___~ there are more pics of her here:

you don't need 2 have an account at tumblr just 2 look at the pics. xD but u need 1 if u wanna reblog or like posts. mine is ^_^ i post pretty/funny non-toma stuff there too. hehe.

lol. cpop = cantopop = cantonese pop music. cuz i used 2 watch a lot of hong kong dramas, so i got into cpop back then. but then the dramas and music started getting so bad and boring...

yeah, i know...seems like everyone is busy these days. =T
yeah...i know. =T thanks! take care, too! <3

hanamichi0016 said...

sori for being nosy..~~ lol
tht sounds so sweet tho ><

kk,thank u ^^..ill try my best to check out ur posts as much as i can.

oh..hehe.i get it now.i actually listen to a lot of it at work...cos i work in a chinese restaurant nd d owner was frm hong kong..its kinda repetitive now tho
-, least i kno its actually called cpop now.

i think im sort of like tht with japanese stuff now. i used to b so obsessed with them..not tht its gotten worse,but i think i hav this phase thing ~~ hehe..but im still curious w/toma nd manga stuff.

well,i hope i get less bc soon...its stressing me out..
(-o-)~ lol

^,~ <3

kate♥toma said...

it's okie. xD
yeah, it was. <3
& it was my idea! hehe.

ok! i just posted some cute toma screencaps from the hana kimi SP at my tumblr today. some of my fav moments...i just love how cool his hair looks in the SP!!! ^_^

really! xD yep, cpop is pretty boring.

oh...i know what u mean. i don't read much manga, but sometimes i read sexy manga. lol. love celeb and ikenai teacher are soooo sexy and the main guy characters are so hot/cute/ sweet. xD

aww...i hope so too! =T *hugs* if u can do something u like sometimes 2 relax. even if it's just for a little while, i think it helps! good luck with everything and take care! <3
