Trafalgar shinko  
Wow. This is the first time in my history as a Takarazuka fan that I haven't been OMG YAY SQUEE about a Soragumi shinko announcement.

Riku. I always, always knew it would eventually be Riku. I could see it coming the whole time, and was honestly just happy that Kai-chan got the BaraAme lead and not a 93rd.

But I certainly was never looking forward to the rise of Our Makaze. Seriously I'm so bored of the "she looks like Mizu so we like her" types. Makaze and Riku (actually she's an otokoyaku Tonami, not Mizu)... and watch out for Yuzuka Rei and Ou Ibuki. They've got the same looks.

Riku in a blond wig is going to pretty lol-worthy, I figure, and we'll see if her voice has improved.

I'm not as biased against Ai-ai, although with her height she's even less suitable for Napoleon than Tomu is. ;P

Kudos to BonBon and Akkii for being shinko Micchan and Tomochin again respectively. Re-re finally graduated from shinko Alice-chan and got her first lead!!! And then Eri-chan got nibante musumeyaku again (yes, again -- the Valencia shinko was a while ago, but I remember!) :) Plus Sakurako understudying Itsumine Aki?? HOT.

The other bad news, however, is that TCA Music is making me wait longer for Je Chante mp3s. Still no release date. No love, TCA, no love.

Can I ask, do you know anything about why Chii-chan is playing a character who appears to have a female name? I was confused when I was inputting the cast list.

I haven't yet confirmed or disproved that Chii-chan's role is a female character.

*edits* Received word from a reliable source that Chii-chan is some kind of mysterious "key person" in the story but it's a regular male role, not a woman.

... and watch out for Yuzuka Rei ...

Have been since last Friday, actually. >cough< I think I may be in danger of having a Thing.

Snore. Ah well, leave Maito-chan to me and Catie then. ;)

I hope this is not too rude but: OMG RIKU YAAAAAY!!!! *_________*
I'm sorry, I like her, I can't help it. ^__^; (And Makaze too, I fall for the "looks like Mizu" types somehow XDD )
Though even I think they could have waited another year or so until they give her such big Shinko roles. ^^; (And I know she can't sing that well but as a Tani fan that's rather unimportant... XD )

Hey, everyone has different tastes, and I try not to rain on other peoples' parades too much. But, you know, I just like a certain other 93rd who will always be in Riku's shadow.

I admit those were the two bits that I was most excited about. ;-)
