(i made it! sept.29 today...whew.)
so it's almost october already!! it's supposed to be fall already, but the weather is still warm/hot these days. thank goodness for the cool nights. in tokyo, seems like it's already cold and rainy these days. i'm so envious!
at least the moon is back these days. yey!! and i love october cuz it's toma's bday month, the 1st month of autumn (weather is cooling down slowly), and it's spooky halloween time (& candy and costumes time)!!
well, as i said in my cbox, i sent toma's bday card on sept. 12! ~__~ it probably already arrived in japan on sept. 19. i took pics of the card and the messages from toma fans before i sent it. i'll upload them and share the link with everyone in the toma birthday post later. ONLY 11 DAYS LEFT until toma's 28th birthday!! ^_^ if you're planning to do/make something for his bday, start planning now!!
ok, toma updates now.
a lot of things to talk about this time!!
........................ 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 http://tfgirls-team.livejournal.com! ~_~)
toma posted a picture of the celebratory envelope (sorry, dunno the official name for these kinda special envelopes!) for the crank-in (the start of filming) of his new drama. [vol. 502, sept.1] toma came up with a nickname for his drama's long title: Osawari! xD he talked about being really happy to film for the new drama and how it doesn't feel rushed. but the weather has been hot during filming. he reminds everyone to take care in the heat. [vol.503, sept.7] he reminds people to go rent Bokura Ga Ita on DVD and Blu-Ray. ~__~ [vol.504, sept.14] he really loves the themesong for Osawari! so much that he cried! he likes the way the drama is filmed and thinks the drama is amazing.
........................... toma news, links, etc. from September ♥
-(u can see a bunch more bokura ga ita movie stuff i reblogged here:
also, this awesome gif set has a lot of nice moments from the movie!
1~ YOU CAN WATCH BOKURA GA ITA
(Part 1) NOW!!!!! ^_^
you can get it at the links below:
(good quality version, no subs, only 395MB! thanks to kavya! ~.~)
(HQ version, with chinese + japanese subs)
(best HQ version, no subs)
------------ SkewedS Fansubs and TFGirls Team will sub this movie!! ^__^
but you can already get the softsubs, by yuizaki_libra, here:
-but since yuizaki already released subs, i wonder if these 2 fansub groups will continue with the subbing...? i feel kinda bad for this, but i will probably only watch the movie once, with yuizaki's subs. i don't see the point of re-watching it again with slightly different subs. and unless people say yuizaki's subs are not very accurate compared to these 2 team's subs or something. anyway, it's rare that i ever want to re-watch a movie, unless i really love it or it's a funny movie.
......BY THE WAY,
after you finish watching the movie, vote on this poll at toma's room! thanks! xD
[poll] did you like Bokura Ga Ita??
2~ TOMA'S PRESS CONFERENCE FOR NOU OTOKO + cool preview clips of the movie!! he wore glasses! *__* i love his outfit and hair! he looked so gorgeous and mature. smart + sexy! xD
A Big Change for Ikuta Toma in “Nou Otoko”
Last Sept 13th, Ikuta Toma attended the press conference for the shooting completion of his upcoming movie, “Nou Otoko“. Director Tomiyuki Takimoto attended the conference and announced that the movie will hit the cinemas on Feb 9th next year.
Based from a novel of the same title, “Nou Otoko” follows the story of a human killing machine void of any human emotions. The said novel won the 46th Edogawa Rampo prize for Mystery Novels back in 2000.
Ikuta Toma, who plays the titular role of a dark hero known to commit murder in the name of justice, said that playing the role of “brain man” has been a huge risk. “I put my soul into this character,” Ikuta said and even admitted that he became socially withdrawn a month before the shooting to get closer to his character. “I think that this role really change my perspective as an actor,” he added.
One of the movie’s highlight is Ikuta’s fight scene with the detective played by Yosuke Eguchi, it has been reported that the scene took 27 hours without sleep or rest. “I thought I was gonna die,” Ikuta said.
“Nou Otoko” will hit the cinemas next year, Feb 9th.

even though i only update this blog each month, but i still come here everyday, and often, it's the 1st site i go to when i go online! ~__~ i've met (talked to) so many nice and friendly toma fans here, and became friends with some of them, too. i also write about random things on my mind, in my cbox here. i guess it's the closest thing to twitter that i have, in case any of you are interested in what i'm thinking about/done recently. haha...
i want to continue posting toma news, pics, etc. and keep sharing toma info with everyone here!! even though it takes a lot of time to gather everything at the end of each month to make the post, and i rarely get comments or messages at my cbox... but i know there must be a lot of people that still come here for toma news, because i still often get 60-100 hits a day. it makes me really happy that many people still come here for toma updates and that this blog still shows up on the 1st or 2nd page of google or yahoo search!! *__*
THANK YOU, EVERYONE, who is reading this and comes here often!!
please keep supporting toma. also, remember to check out my tumblr and the Toma's Room community often! also, please leave me comments/messages at the cbox sometimes. i get lonely here sometimes. xD
so...my 500th post, then 5th anniv of being toma's fan, and now this. i'm kind of all celebrated out. xD i guess you could say that i just celebrated this time, by having a yummyyy jamba juice Peach Pleasure smoothie and i started watching Bokura Ga Ita. ~.~
