Despite beeing busy with my school (yup again T_T *sob* ) I could not and didn't want miss opportunity to write this post. I would like to write about Toma's upcoming movie and his visit to Berlin, because I think no one in fandom makes any action to write/talk about it (which is kinda sad :/ ). I will try keep it short and brief. (but WARNING little bit fangirling included XD)
jaaa hajimemashou! ♥
About the new movie
As you might know Toma's newest movie will hit cinemas on 25th february this year. The name of the movie is Karera ga Honki de Amu Toki wa (When they knit seriously/ Close knit in english).
He plays Rinko, a transgender woman. "She" works as a nurse in elderly house. Rinko's boyfriend Makio(Kiritani Kenta) has sister who left her daughter Tomo. Makio decides to take care of Tomo together with Rinko. (that is all I know so far hehe)

My thoughts/opinion about the movie...
I dont want to exaggerate, BUT I have strong feeling this movie will be soooo awesome and perfect!!!
I remember when I first read the news I was like eeeeeh? yadaaaa :P Toma? transgender? that is horrible :P Actually I was afraid that it will be again some perv comedy :P, gosh I am sooo happy I was mistaken XD).
Now when I think about the movie I am sooo proud of Tomacchi!!! But to be honest, I dont think many people understand the weight of this movie...
Firstly it is the first japanese movie about this topic and Toma is first japanese actor and Johnny's ever who portrayed a transgender (ok you can see men dressed up as women for fun in some jdramas, but this time it is serious! Correct me if I am mistaken...). What is more the director is a woman which is not so common too.
Secondly, it is big challenge and chance too to show everybody his talent as an actor, who can portray even this "complicated" kind of roles. I am reaaally rooting for him and I am so proud of him that he worked so hard and is not afraid to portray this difficult role!!! I saw trailer and I am not disgusted or anything. Actually it made me even more excited to finally watch it. It looks to be very emotional, sweet, bittersweet story. Really cant waiit!! ♥
Look.. this is Toma as Rinko ♥♥♥ he is soooo damn beautiful isn't he? T_T
Toma in Berlin:
And why I am talking about this movie? Because it is becoming more and more popular and it got an award at 67th Berlin International Film festival!!!! Yup TOMA WENT TO BERLIIIIIN!!! ( yeeeaaah ONLY 677 km from meeee T_T ) Of course I am soooo proud, hyper and exicited and soo happy for him but, damn what makes me sad is that it was his 3th time beeing in Europe and I still could not meet him :P
But I wont rant about my little depression about not being able to go to Berlin, but I want share this photos with youuu. (they are NOT mine! cr. to owner on watermark)
