2) The 14th Isobella Salon concert will feature ♥♥♥ Sakura Ichika ♥♥♥ Unfortunately I don't follow hanagumi much these days, but it still makes me happy to see a skilled upperclassman musumeyaku get some attention ♥
That is all ♥
I’m lucky to have been able to see three shinjinkouen performances since becoming a Takarazuka fan. They’re always so, so much fun. Shinko performers only get one chance per run to do their performance and as a result always put 200% into their roles.
Shinkos are always a little rough around the edges, but even with that I found the
( The Bad )
( The Good )
( Cast Rundown )
So in conclusion…no, it’s not an absolutely perfect show. But I really, really love it anyway, and I really recommend that everyone see it
I have no idea why the review for "Amour, sore wa..." showed up in front of the "Bara ni Furu Ame" review. I give up on formatting in LJ with cuts -_-;;; I'm just grateful that everything appeared, didn't sneak out from under the cut, and isn't entirely in bold :P
( Bara ni Furu Ame review )
I don't think I'm ever going to be able to look at our little Watson-kun, aka Harukaze Misato, the same way again. Ever. The fact that I was warned doesn't help.
*eyes are still very wide*
Yes, I just watched That Scene in Bara ni Furu Ame. It's well done and Mii-chan looks very mature, but...wow.
This only makes me more excited about the Takarazuka version. I suspect it could be a very talk-y show, but it suits the atmosphere. And I wonder how they'll incorporate "As Time Goes By" and the other songs? Or maybe they'll have to go with other songs if getting the original copyright is a problem?
Anyway, I decided to write down my casting predictions. I always like doing these and going back later to see how I did. (For the record, I'd like to brag that wao_wao and I predicted long before the summary of Paradise Prince was released that Tomu would be an evil, corporate villain trying to get Tani to sell out and Micchan would play Tani's friend XD)
( Here's looking at you, kid. )
Micchan is, as I expected, in the Hakataza cast. I'm (knock on lots of wood) expecting her to be Watanabe no Tsuna when the actual cast list comes out. I've been a bit paranoid that she would be jumped over by someone during the regime change, but I don't see anyone in the cast list who would do that. Team Hakataza also gets Masako ♥ ♥ ♥
I'm normally not much of a fan of Heian era nihonmono (simply because they tend to be extremely angsty and the Japanese is hard to follow), but the fantasy element of this one intrigues me.
Also, much love for Mii-chan being in Phoenix Wright 2. I wonder if she'll play the same character? And I wonder what Tomochin will be doing. I think she could do a good Edgeworth, but who knows if they'll recast the role. If nothing else she would make a good villian.
