crushing on: Ikuta Toma [really bad, i tell you...really bad]



I'm going to credit my latest Japanese delight obsession to a dear, dear fifteen year old named Aria; a kindred soul that shares my Jdorama [that's a pop culture name for these Japanese dramas or series] addiction. Not until Friday last week did I learn of Ikuta Toma when I finally had the chance to watch my copy of Hanakazari No Kimitachi E, known popularly as Hana Kimi in the Philippines. There was a Taiwanese version that came first, but I just found that horrendous. Aria told me to watch Toma in the series



Ikuta Toma plays Nakatsu Shuichi, who struggles with his attraction towards Ashiya Mizuki who disguises himself as a boy to get inside an exclusive boys boarding school to follow another guy. Well, we all know how these cross-dressing shows go...



Toma, for me, has mastered the art of the voice-over-soliloquy [that's what i call it]...trust me, he's just sooo cute when he does it. Oh yes, here I go again with the lips!!!



As far as I can tell, Toma-chan has quite a range; can't wait to watch him in the live action version of Honey and Clover





why do i feel like Mario Maurer is giving me that look again? oh well...
