Actress Aragaki Yui (21) is currently in New York to film for her new movie “Hanamizuki”. In March she and costar Ikuta Toma (25) went to Hokkaido and finished all the domestic scenes for the movie. Now Gakky had to fly overseas by herself to film a couple more scenes in North America, but instead of feeling lonely she showed complete devotion.

Yukio Okada’s manga “MOTEL” is being turned into a live-action film, starring popular young actor Toma Ikuta (24). This is Ikuta’s second movie role, after the Osamu Dazai adaptation “Ningen Shikkaku” ( “No Longer Human” ) which is scheduled for release next year.

This new movie is titled “Seaside Motel,” set in a motel that is curiously named Seaside despite being surrounded by mountains. Ikuta plays Kameda, a traveling salesman who peddles questionable cosmetic products. His female lead is Kumiko Aso (31), playing a call girl named Candy whose popularity is already fading even before she hits the age of thirty.

Ikuta Toma’s Wife In “No Longer Human” Is Satomi Ishihara

Satomi Ishihara (22) has been cast in Genjiro Arato’s “Ningen Shikkaku,” based on the Osamu Dazai novel of the same name, also known as “No Longer Human.” It was announced back in May that Toma Ikuta (24) had been given the starring role.

“Ningen Shikkaku” was the most autobiographical of Dazai’s works, and his last before committing suicide. Ikuta plays a young man unable to truly connect with others, keeping up a jovial facade as his life spirals toward self-destruction. Ishihara plays one of the several women in his life, and the only one he marries.

The movie is scheduled for a 2010 release.

Ikuta Toma to Star In First Movie “人間失格 / No Longer Human”

The actor Ikuta Toma (24), along with actress Terajima Shinobu (36) and others, attended the press announcement of the upcoming movie ‘人間失格 / No Longer Human’ (scheduled to premiere in January 2010) in Tokyo. ‘No Longer Human’ is originally a novel written by Dazai Osamu, and largely considered to be his masterpiece. The main character is Oba Yozo, a man that is plagued by self-consciousness and cannot socialize with other people. He turns to binge-drinking and womanizing, and gradually ruins himself.

This will be Ikuta’s debut film and naturally will be his first ever lead role in a movie. He commented, “I’m extremely honored to appear in an important film commemorating the 100th anniversary of Dazai’s birth.” He showed a lot of enthusiasm towards the upcoming filming. “I will let the director and the novel control me and try to gradually lose my mind [like the main character].” Asked about his co-stars such as Terajima and the actress Mita Yoshiko (67), he seemed eager about working with them. “I’m really excited and a little nervous. I want to learn a lot from them.”

Ikuta Toma Leads Adaptation Of Dazai’s “No Longer Human”

Popular young actor Toma Ikuta (24) will star in a new movie directed by Genjiro Arato, the producer responsible for the award-winning “Zigeunerweisen” in 1980. The film is “Ningen Shikkaku,” based on the Osamu Dazai novel of the same name. Also known in English as “No Longer Human,” the book is generally considered to be Dazai’s greatest masterpiece.

Ikuta has recently had major roles in several television series, but this role will actually be his first time appearing in a movie. Published in 1948, the semi-autobiographical “Ningen Shikkaku” was Dazai’s last completed work before he successfully committed suicide. Despite selling millions of copies, the story has never been adapted to screen. However, this year is the 100th anniversary of Dazai’s birth, prompting the decision to create a movie.

Filming starts in July, with a release projected for spring 2010.

ORICON: Fresh Actors to Keep An Eye On

SATO TAKERUmizushima hiroharuma miura

Several weeks ago, Oricon polled a group of 300 high school girls about up-and-coming young actors. The women were asked to identify which “fresh” actors they have been paying close attention to.

#1 was Takeru Sato, who first got his break as the star of “Kamen Rider Den-O.” He has recently picked up a few major television roles in dramas such as “Bloody Monday” and “Mei-chan no Shitsuji.”

Ranked 2nd was the highly popular Hiro Mizushima, who also appeared in “Mei-chan no Shitsuji.”  Haruma Miura, the star of “Bloody Monday,” was #3.

  1. Takeru Sato
  2. Hiro Mizushima
  3. Haruma Miura
  4. Junpei Mizobata
  5. Masaki Okada
  6. Shohei Miura
  7. Eita
  8. Hiroshi Tamaki
  9. Toma Ikuta
  10. Ryosuke Yamada


Idk but I guess thos 300 HS girls didn’t get the idea “Fresh” -____-
Some of these guys are already senpais and had a lot of experience already

I guess they thought artists they have discovered just recently (“fresh” to them) not actors new “fresh” to the industry

How Do Johnny’s Actors Rank Against… Each Other?

Johnny’s groups dominate many different forms of media here in Japan, including music, television, movies, magazines and more. The popular Japanese search engine ‘goo’ published just yesterday a chart of exactly who ranks highest amongst the Johnny’s actors, and how they compare to one another. For a limited time, the Johnny’s office even linked fans to the site to allow them to vote for their favourites, giving them a real voice in the final numbers.

It may come as no surprise to anyone that the magnificent Kimura Takuya, also known as KimuTaku, came in at number one.”Asunaro Hakusho” has just begun, marking a third chapter in Fuji TV’s fabulous Monday at 9 “Getsu Ku” series in which Kimura has starred, all of which have been huge hits. Kimura can play both light and dark roles, and has shown impressive range in the characters he has chosen to play.

Coming in at number two is Okada Junichi, a member of V6 who shows an entirely new side of himself in the brand new show “Kisarazu Cat’s Eye”. Not so long ago he was playing his first starring role in “SP Keishichou Keibi Bu Keigo Ka Dai Yon Kakari”, in which he showed his ability to play a policeman involved in hand-to-hand fights.


#1 Kimura Takuya
#2 Okada Junichi
#3 Kusanagi Tsuyoshi
#4 Ninomiya Kazunari
#5 Nagase Tomoya
#6 Matsumoto Jun
#7 Domoto Tsuyoshi
#8 Yamashita Tomohisa
#9 Ikuta Toma
#10 Matsuoka Masahiro
