1) The next "Juri no Yappari Go Go 5" will have Tomu, Mii-chan, and Chii-chan ♥

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 ♥

Now can we please just get a release date for the Shangri-La DVD? :P

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 Casablanca shinko very, very enjoyable on its own.  There were a *lot* of promising siennes in the cast.

Since I've gotten home, I haven't managed to get any work done on my grad school admissions essays. And yet I seem to have found the time to finish my Casablanca review AND write a Christmas card to Micchan >.> For the record, I went into this show thinking of it as "Takarazuka Does Casablanca." I don't think anyone could be Humphrey Bogart, etc. so I tried to think of this "Casablanca" as a completely different animal.

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

My dear God.

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.

So tonight I sat down and watched Casablanca.  It was AMAZING, and definitely deserves its status as a great American film.   If you haven't seen it, I really do recommend it.  I can feel my willpower and common sense melting, although it's not completely gone yet.

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 [profile] 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. )

 

 

Hmmm.

Cast lists for Ooeyama Kanden and Phoenix Wright 2 are up, and it looks like Junya Chitose has the musumeyaku lead for the latter.  (It it wasn't going to be Alice-chan, then I had my bets on Tara-chan or maybe even Rere).  I'm kind of disappointed (hanging out with [profile] wao_wao  rubs off on me, and I'm starting to become genuinely very fond of Alice), but she should at least get the nibante musumeyaku role in Hakata.  I don't really know anything about Junya Chitose period.  She's kind of been off my musumeyaku radar.

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.
