Erika Toda in Miracle Zoo 2010

 From 2010 came the 4th installment of this popular TV movie, Miralce Zoo, the other films came out in 2006, 2007 and 2008. An enjoyable watch though a bit thin on the plot which really just focuses on a group of Zoo keepers working in Hokkaido, same scenario for all the films, the group has to overcome certain obstacles such as funding and feuding between them, plus there will always be at least one very sick animal who ends up dying, thus bringing the group closer each time it happens. Mainly enjoyable for Erika, though everything she's in is worth watching, not a high recommendation but it's watchable, more geared for family viewing.

Year: 2010 Running Time: 94 minutes
Cast: Yamaguchi Tomomitsu, Toda Erika, Koide Keisuke, Mizusawa Erena, Yoshida Eisaku, Ito Shiro, Tsugawa Masahiko

Erika Toda SPEC screenshots episode 6

 Finally finished up the SPEC/Keizoku 2 drama which aired from October to December of last year for a total of 10 episodes. Already gave a quick synopsis of the series some pages back, here's the link:

 For the final 5 episodes the Unsolved Cases Department worked less on those kind of cases as they were concerned, especially Erika's character Toma, of finding a teen named Ninomae who had extraordinary SPEC powers. The SPEC division was disbanded and everyone fired but were quickly hired back being they were the only ones who could probably solve the case and also were the only ones who would be willing to put everything on the line to find Nonomae. Rather not give away too much as this is one drama that needs to be seen, perhaps the best from 2010, plus Erika just seems to get better with every series she does, her best role to date was in this. Here are some Erika shots from episode 6 here plus the next 4 posts have shots from the remaining episodes and here is the cast list again for the key characters.
