( 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 keep on looking at the star tab in hopes that people will be back in the show, but no such luck...
What terrifies me is that the really highly ranked people may not even have the option of calling out sick unless they're physically at the point where they can't stand up any more. And given that Micchan is also rehearsing for the buyouakai, I really do worry about her.
Not to mention everyone else.
Get well soon, soragumi!
ETA: Totally didn't look at the bottom of the announcement. It looks like at least Kacha, Dai-chan, Kuracchi, Kyanon, and Sattsun are back as of today's show. That's something at least.
I especially like Yuuhi looking pretty, Alice-chan looking like she's up to no good somehow, Masako's amusing horns, and a certain girl in blue.
The whole production looks really, really pretty, and intriguing to boot. I'm usually not one for Heian-era nihonmono, but I'm actually excited this time. I blame it on the fact that it has demons AND a demon-hunting Micchan.
I'm crossing my fingers that pictures from Apasionado II show up in a few days :D
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 )
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. )
( From my limited internet research, this is what I've figured out about some of the other roles: )( Cut for speculation )
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.
