Rate Horikita Maki:
Where did I first see her?
Without realising it, the first time I did see Maki was during Densha Otoko, the series. How ever, of course, the first time I noticed her was in Nobuta wo Produce as Kotani Nobuko.
From Nobuta wo Produce, I began to see her everywhere! I really enjoy the shows that she is in and like to look out for her shows. That being said, you can really tell the difference between her real smile and her acting smile. It is really bad!

While I was in Japan I bought home.. *ahem* 75 manga. Yes, it was heavy. You can check out a crappy phone photo here. All this manga goodness was thanks to the wonders and delights that is Book Off. It may just be the most wonderful place in the whole world. It sells second hand books at an awesome price. Just don’t go there on Lady’s day and expect to come out empty handed…
Never the less, looking at my wall of manga, I thought I better get started on it properly or else I all the exercise I got carrying the things around Japan would have been for nothing. I have flicked through a few, “read” a few as well, but apart from some frustration, little has been gained. I really need to sit down and “study” these books without trying to make it into too much of a chore.
So I’ve decided to tackle Hana Kimi first.

Name (romaji): Ikuta Toma
Birthdate: 1984 Oct 07
Birthplace: Noboribetsu, Hokkaido, Japan
Rate Ikuta Toma:
Where did I first see him?
I first saw him in Hana Yori Dango 2, where he played Junpei (I think that was his character’s name!) in the first episode. Everyone was so excited he was in it, I remember that, but I didn’t know who he was… Fast track a season or so later, and he was Nakatsu in Hana Kimi. I wasn’t so excited about Hana Kimi at first, until I fell in love with Nakatsu the character, and then Toma. We’ve been dating ever since.
I really like Ikuta Toma a lot. In variety shows he seems to be a bit shy, not a complete show off, but has a good sense of humour. As an actor he seems pretty versatile… but who am I kidding? I just like to watch
Rate Oguri Shun:
Where did I first see him?
Without realising it, I first saw him in Densha Otoko, the tv series. It wasn’t until later, when I knew who he was, that I went back to rewatch and see him there. I can’t remember if I watched Hana Yori Dango or Gokusen first, but I watched both around the same time. It is around this time that I actively became aware of Shun. I’m not sure when I first became to really appreciate him as an actor, but I certainly came to admire him.
Shun is one busy boy. He seems to do a lot. I really like Shun as an actor – he’s someone that I would watch something because he is in it. He is pretty sexy too, in an odd kind of way – and definitely looks better with darker hair in my opinion.
Shun has Pectus Excavatum, a disorder in the chest which makes a part of it sunken. He’s still sexy.
He’s left handed. Lefties for world domination!
He likes surfing.
The Hana Kimi website has updated with some videos of the new special that is coming soon. It looks like they are having a lot of fun filming (but I haven’t watched all of the videos yet). I can not wait for the special to air, I really enjoyed this show!Read More
