I’ve been watching lots of dramas lately as I mentioned on my last post. And maybe you missed the fact (because it was a long post) that I really like Ikuta Toma XD I really love his acting in Hanakimi and Akihabara@DEEP and his stage play Cat in the Red Boots (even though I have only see parts of it).
I guess it’s a usual thing to find actors being good at what they do on other parts of the known world. But in Japanese most actors derives from this monopolizing agency called Johnny’s Jimusho and these “actors” are not really actors per se, they’re entertainers. They sing went they can’t really sing, and they act when they can’t really act. Well this is only a generalization. Some of the entertainers from Johnny’s Jimusho can raise to the occasion and really shine.
Quality actors in Japan (as in Indonesia) is hard to find. One might say that Ken Watanabe, or Abe Hiroshi are good actors. Well, yes they ar, but there are so few of them. I dare say that Ikuta Toma will fit to that category of good actors. With time he will be great too. Hey ,the man is 23. Abe and Watanabe are well up on their forties. The only thing that bothers me is that he is from Johnny’s Entertainment. When I said that Ikuta Toma will fit to that category of good actors that doesn’t go well with being in the Jimusho. Oh this is gonna be long >_< but the main thing is that he hasn’t been debutted by the Jimusho. The Jimusho always debuts people in a form of boy bands (minimum a duo). The rumor mill is spinning saying that the Jimusho is gonna debut him soon. But I think someone like Ikuta Toma is too good to be molded in to a lump of singing and dancing group. DAKARA… IYA DESU!! He is an actor. His singing voice is good but let me say this again… HE IS AN ACTOR!!! I think lumping him into a boy band just because he gained great attention these days (namely from playing Nakatsu Shuichi in HanaKimi) is a knieving scheme from a knieving agency. AHHH KUYASHII!!!!
Because I have to go home. Kore Ijou. BABY!!!!
