Okay, so Micchan will be in the buyoukai again this year.
That makes for her fourth year in a row! I'm afraid that like fine wine, the art of buyou escapes me. It's something that I know has a lot of value, but I just don't know how to judge and appreciate everything that goes into it. But if this is Micchan's fourth year in a row, I wonder if the company thinks that she's good at it? (The first year was with tsukigumi, and the other three were/will be with soragumi). Tomu is also in the cast, which will be her
third year in a row o.O
Also in the cast are:Senka:
Matsumoto Yuri, Todoroki Yu, Kyou Misa, Kou Akemi, Ichihara Kei, Itsumine Aki, and Miho KeikoHoshigumi:
Yuzuki Reon, Yumesaki Nene, Suzumi Shio, Tsurumi Mayuu, Shirotae Natsu, Kai Hayato, Asato Mao, Miharu Ayaka, Hishiro Yua, Makaze Suzuho, Seki Yutio, Kizaki Reo, Wakanatsu Ayame, Honjou KurehaSoragumi:
Oozora Yuuhi, Nono Sumika, Ranju Tomu, Hokushou Kairi
...It occurs to me that I may be in Japan for this. I'm still waiting on an ochakai date, which will determine everything.
I worry about Micchan because this will be yet another extra thing she'll have to rehearse for. (Then again, who knows, maybe she enjoys it. I know she said that the 2006 buyoukai was one of her favorite performing experiences) But in between her dinner show, probably being in the 2009 TCA special, and now the buyoukai, I worry T_________T
Also, the speculation in this thread
made me worried that Micchan or even Tomu would be pulled out of soragumi to be Kiriyan's nibante, maybe even before Casablanca. I was starting to wonder if the lack of a Casablanca cast list was because Hankyu was waiting on some sort of transfer annoucnement (and they still might be. I have a theory that I don't dare say out loud for fear of it not happening). But if both Micchan and Tomu are announced to be in the buyoukai (which is in the middle of Casablanca's mura run) and they're doing so as soragumi members, then neither of them could be transferred out before mura senshuraku.
...as someone who is trying to make travel plans, this is very good news :D Obviously I have opinions about what goes on after this, but I'm selfishly relieved that two of my favorite siennes will be in Casablanca. After all, it's going to be much harder to get tickets to Last Play ;)
Oh dear, how did it become 1:30 in the morning? ^^;
