First, list six Takarazuka plays you love, or ask someone to assign you six.

1. El Halcon
3. A/L
4. The Second Life
5. Silver Rose Chronicle
6. Scout

(I personally decided to go with original Zuka works, and therefore omitted tsukigumi Ernest in Love, Me and My Girl, and Elisabeth)

Please work, cut? )

Now I remember why I haven't been translating so much lately...because it takes forever.  Comments are highly appreciated XD


"Especial Time ~As You Like~": Hokushou Kairi and Yuzuki Reon

(Graph March 2009)

I’m just an amateur who does these for fun and to improve my Japanese.  My apologies for any mistakes contained within.  Do not repost or retranslate without getting permission first.

Many, many thanks to [profile] jess_in_japan for putting up with my grammar questions.  Also lots of thanks to [personal profile] sumire_no_hana  who was VERY generous in indulging a highly impatient fangirl with a scan of this article about 48 hours after it was published XD

Micchan and Chie talk about sneaking around the set of Nova Bossa Nova, cooking, adlibs, blood types, and more )

You are clearly in too deep when you find yourself excited for it to finally be the 20th, so you can finally know who Micchan's Especial Time interview in this month's Graph will be with.  Micchan's is with...Chie.  Not the first person I would have expected, but Micchan has said on Sky Stage before that she admires Chie, plus they were on the Berlin tour together.


Regardless, the pictures will be beautiful, and I'm sure there will be amusing anecdotes about TMS (Micchan and Chie were only a year apart).


matataku_hoshi: (Kiriyan "stand up and sing")
Congratulations to Chie and Nene, our new hoshigumi top combi!  A year ago I would have been really disappointed by Nene, but I feel she's improved in her time in hoshigumi.  I'll probably never be the world's biggest fan, but I can more or less accept this and will try not to dwell on the other musumeyaku who could have taken this position.  Or maybe this is all just relief that the theory about getting rid of the top musumeyaku position has been debunked? ^^;

Kaname is moving to hoshigumi after the Takarazuka run of Zorro (and obviously won't be in the Tokyo run). 

Chigi is moving to yukigumi after BeruBara and will be in the Tokyo run of Zorro.

Amasaki Chihana is moving to hanagumi after BeruBara.

This is actually a lot less shakeups than I was expecting.  *scratches head* Wait, weren't we expecting some tsukigumi things?  Unless this is going to come in stages?  I wouldn't be surprised.

Excuse me while I guiltily sit around and feel relieved that Micchan wasn't moved ^^;

Micchan had the Star Voice interview on Takarazuka news this morning.  I found a lot of her answers really funny so I decided to sum it up below.  Per usual take my reports of Japanese with a grain of salt, but I think I got most of it right.

One of these days I need to go back and summarize some of Kiriyan's answers when she was on Star Voice a few weeks ago, because some of them were really funny too.

I like.

I thought this came out very lovely.  I think I may need it, despite the fact that I currently have five Takarazuka posters hanging in my apartment and a few more than aren't on my wall yet.  (Does this make me insane?)

Looks like they've decided to stay away from blond!Touko.  Hmm, it's a little strange for Percy not to be a blond, but Touko looks quite lovely as it is so I'm not complaining.

I do hope they remember that the show is a comedy, though -_-;

Because it was senshuraku, everyone got a penlight when they entered the theater, along with instructions to wave it during a certain part during the finale.  It was red and said “Le Rouge et le Noir.”  I love these sorts of things *g*  I was a bit surprised since I thought it only happened at a top star’s sayonara show, but I’m certainly not complaining.  Apparently the Tokyo branch of Touko’s club organized it ^^ 

Warning: Spoilers contained within!
