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
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.
