For the lols  
It's time for another round of Jen says / Julie says!

Jen says: new Masaki postcard!

Julie says: RAN-CHAN'S FIRST POSTCARD ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

(Actually first I looked at Jen's link and thought "oh my god that Mirio postcard is so scary."

And then after checking Ran-chan's postcard I thought, "oh :( No Yukigumi musumeyaku are going to get postcards :(")

But anyway enough of that.

The actual content of this post is a crazy idea that Cate threw out during our epic comment thread this morning.

The idea of Tomomin!Phoenix Wright.

It's so ridiculously out there and impossible that I couldn't help but start fantasy-casting it XDDDDD

Phoenix Wright (a pure-hearted attorney who stands for Truth, Justice and the American Way): Yumeno Seika, the hilarious image which spawned this silliness in the first place X3

Leona Clyde (Phoenix's childhood friend and sweetheart, now a legal assistant to the governor of New York): Hisaki Seara. Most of this casting is just a lark, but kind of taking it seriously with this one. Since there a lot of musumeyaku in Hoshigumi who are IN YOUR FACE STRONG, I'd like Seara-chan because I think she'd be more Calm But Strong, which is how Leona should be.

(Actually at first my mind went to Minami Mari -- 85th musumeyaku love ♥ ♥ Although not that fantasy-casting needs to be current seito, but she is also two school years above Tomomin...)

Miles Edgeworth (Phoenix's childhood friend, now a cold and ruthless prosecutor): Kurenai Yuzuru.

Yes, I'm going there.

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW WRONG IT IS, I mean the total implausibility of Tomomin!Phoenix is the premise so XD XD XDDDDDDDD

Dick Gumshoe (a completely useless police detective): I had the hardest time with this one. Still can't decide between Miya Rurika and Ichijou Azusa? I lean toward Shiiran just because I like her more, but she might be "above" Gumshoe now the she's gotten all 24-7 Smexy.

(Oh my god, in Really Hilarious Fantasy Land if I made KANAME Edgeworth I could have BENI GUMSHOE OH MY GOD MAYBE THAT'S WHAT WE'LL HAVE TO DO. XDDDDDDDD TIMES A MILLION)

Larry Butz (Phoenix's completely useless friend): KISARAGI REN IT'S BRILLIANT I TELL YOU, BRILLIANT. SHE'D BE PERFECT.

Maya Fey (Phoenix's cutesy sidekick girl who dresses funny): ...Kitori Mariya? Not because she's So Right for Maya-chan, but rather because she's Decidedly Wrong for it so I'd like to see her approach. Maybe she'd rediscover that overwhelmingly innocent cuteness she had in El Halcon.

If not her, perhaps Kaga Ririka? I don't know, if I start to go too far down into underclassmen I'm tempted to go all the way and just pick some 95th / 96th girl I like. ^^;;;

Then again if this was Phoenix 2 there'd be NO CHOICE but to cast Mariya as Franziska and it would be the most terrifying thing in the history of musumeyaku. Cate, I CANNOT BELIEVE you SAW Phoenix 2 and thought you'd like to see Mariya in that vacuous wannabe heroine role instead of THE LADY PROSECUTOR WITH THE WHIP.

Monica Clyde (Leona's sister): someone kind-of-but-not-really-star-tracked like Otoha Minori. Or Yuuka Riko. I've seen enough of both of them to be on the level of "sort of like it but not 100% sure?"

Miller Arthur (the governor of New York): Nishiki Ai it can't be anyone else and she would be so, so hot.

Sarah Shelly (Miller's aide): someone tiny but at least partially on the radar like Saotome Wakaba? Or Hishiro Yua, man I totally loved her as Kitty in Anna Karenina and then she never did anything again :\

The Judge: Miki Chigusa? She fits the best in my mind. For lols, Mizuki Ryou could also work.

Moeno Crystal / Neuce Inbitt (a TV news reporter / a journalist): I apparently fused these characters together in my head when I was working on this earlier ^^;;; They're two separate roles but one is only an on-screen appearance so it could still work?

Anyway it was kind of a baby role but I'd like to give it to an older musumeyaku like Otohana Yuri or above. Koro-chan really fits in my mind as a news reporter for some reason...

OH MY GOD WAIT. I FORGOT. LOTTA HART.

Lotta Hart (a fast-talking, wise-cracking, crazy energetic tabloid photographer): IT HAS TO BE KORO-CHAN I think she's the only ザ・関西人 of Hoshigumi upperclassmen musumeyaku?

...Or. Oh, oh. Or.

JUNKO-SAN XD XD XDDDDD ♥ ♥ ♥

Robert (The Guy Who Dies and is only an onscreen role): Aomi Rima, because I want her in this show <---

Again on the "if this was Phoenix 2" line of thinking, I'd selfishly cast Rima-chan as Roland. But realistically it would go to MiyaRuri -- or no wait if MiyaRuri was Gumshoe... OH MY GOD SHIIRAN!ROLAND. WOULD BE AS TERRIFYING AS FRANZISKA!MARIYA. OMGOMG.

And on that note, I really should stop pondering this nonsense and go do something "productive" ^^;;;;;

Actually first I looked at Jen's link and thought "oh my god that Mirio postcard is so scary."
It's just that you're not used to Mirio's "tall, dark and handsome" side yet ;p

I wish I knew more of hoshigumi and could completely enjoy this post but...I agree with you on one point :

KANAME!EDGEWORTH ! SO MUCH "♥" AND "XD" AT THE SAME TIME !!!

It's just that you're not used to Mirio's "tall, dark and handsome" side yet ;p

If her Chauvelin didn't convince me, I don't think a postcard in which she looks like a terrorist is going to do it. ^^;;;

(Anyway since when was Mirio all that tall? ;)

KANAME!EDGEWORTH ! SO MUCH "♥" AND "XD" AT THE SAME TIME !!!

Eh heh heh heh... >:)

Mirio looks like a punk about to pick-pocket someone.

Ran-chan's photo is so pretty~!

*now wants to see Tomomin!Phoenix Wright* XD
Julie: alice dorothy naughtywao_wao on July 27th, 2010 12:57 am (UTC)
Ran-chan = ♥ ♥ ♥

Tomomin!Phoenix = XD XD XD

Mirio = I said "terrorist" :X
Ms. Brittladybretagne on July 26th, 2010 11:08 pm (UTC)
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS IDEA, mostly because I would KILL to see Renta as Larry! ♥!
arlecchinic on July 26th, 2010 11:42 pm (UTC)
THIS IS VERY PERFECT.

Seara: YES. She would be Legit Good, and hasn't really ever had a chance to do a properly grown-up role. I nearly said her yesterday, but was focusing on insanity so dismissed her because she'd be Actually Good <----

Beni: dfgfdgkjhdfkj YES YES YES. THIS WOULD BE AMAZING. I AM JUST IMAGINING BENI'S OUTRAGED FACE WHEN SHE LOSES.

I want to say definitely MiyaRuri Gumshoe, because I want to see her do more comedy, but she sort of holds herself back sometimes when things get really crack-y to protect her image, so I don't know if she'd go ALL THE WAY like you need to for Gumshoe, so, actually maybe it should be Shiiran Gumshoe but I want Shiiran Roland SO WE'LL JUST HAVE TO CLONE BENI ksdkghdfjg now I am imagining Beni hanging out with her clone oh my God.

Renta: YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES OH MY GOD I like actually want this to happen now JUST FOR THAT.

I think Ririka would be a Legit Good Maya, but Mariya would be HILARIOUS.

Franziska: I'M SORRY. I'M SORRY. I FORGOT ALL ABOUT HER. My mind went from Mariya lead to well, Mariya Leona is never going to work, so we'll have to do the sequel. BUT DO WANT. SO MUCH. OH GOD. SO MUCH. So much that I have seriously been sitting here for five minutes just thinking about how much I want that.

Monica can go to Haruko because I like her more, but she is probably too star-tracked for that these days, so it would have to be Riko.

Rabu-san: Of course. ALSO, off topic but since it hasn't been discussed on LJ yet, can we please take a minute to dwell on how INCREDIBLY HOT RomiPapa was. Seriously. The ONE THING that was lacking from R+J was about half an hour of Mr & Mrs Montague stage time.

I haven't seen the first GyakuSai so I don't know who Sarah Shelley is so I'll take your word for it! Wakaba is generally funnier, so since this is LOL HOSHIGUMI YOU ARE CRAZY cast, we'd better go with Wakaba, even though I miss seeing Yua-chan have actual lines too :(

JUNNA HAS TO BE JUDGE. In fine El Halcon tradition.

Kawai-neesan for reporter(s)? Or can we create a new male reporter just so we can put Doi-chan in this cast (AND HAVE SKY REPORTER PLAYING A REPORTER OH SNAP)

Marino Yui is also from Kansai but, you're right, IT HAS TO BE KORO-CHAN SORRY.

If it's Kumichou, she also has to show up as a dead person in some video footage or something, IT'S HOSHIGUMI RULES.

AND SHIIRAN ROLAND ABSOLUTELY YES BECAUSE I CAN ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT SHIIRAN WOULD KILL SOMEONE. Roland would be CRAZY LIKE MORITZ.

Also.

"oh my god that Mirio postcard is so scary."

I want her Chauvelin one so badly D:

By the way, glad to see your packing is coming along <--- (Not that I can talk. *eyes textbooks*)
Julie: eriko alec dorkywao_wao on July 27th, 2010 12:30 am (UTC)
Seara: YES. She would be Legit Good, and hasn't really ever had a chance to do a properly grown-up role.

Except for Anna Karenina? Which, if it wasn't obvious, laid the foundation for some of my random baby loves in Hoshigumi...

Anyway if Seara-chan is Legit Good, who would you pick for Leona in the Super Wacked-Out Version?

Beni: dfgfdgkjhdfkj YES YES YES. THIS WOULD BE AMAZING.

SO WE'LL JUST HAVE TO CLONE BENI ksdkghdfjg now I am imagining Beni hanging out with her clone oh my God.


Ahahahaha omg Beni clone but yeah I agree she HAS to be Gumshoe AND Edgey... Well as I said above if we brought Kaname in and ignored the whole nibante thing we could have ridiculous Kaname!Edgeworth times? Amidst the hilarity Edgeworth kind of has to take himself seriously, so...?

Renta: YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES OH MY GOD I like actually want this to happen now JUST FOR THAT.

I KNOW RIGHT. I KNOW RIGHT.

BUT DO WANT. SO MUCH. OH GOD. SO MUCH. So much that I have seriously been sitting here for five minutes just thinking about how much I want that.

Yeah, fair enough that you wouldn't remember all of the characters like us obsessive Sora nuts. ^^;;; BUT FRANZISKA. TERRIFYING, RIGHT, TERRIFYING AND AWESOME.

Monica can go to Haruko because I like her more, but she is probably too star-tracked for that these days, so it would have to be Riko.

Are you implying that Monica isn't a star-tracked-enough role, without actually having seen Phoenix 1? ^^;;; Not that I'd really fight over Haruko vs. Riko getting it.

ALSO, off topic but since it hasn't been discussed on LJ yet, can we please take a minute to dwell on how INCREDIBLY HOT RomiPapa was.

I WANTED TO PUT IT IN MY POST. But I had a certain flow going and wasn't sure where to work it in but YES, yes. I said it to Gen afterward at least. R+J = NEEDS MORE MONTAGUES.

I haven't seen the first GyakuSai so I don't know who Sarah Shelley is so I'll take your word for it!

It isn't really a "LOLtimes role" so much as a "fetches and carries for the governor" kind of role. Really any little baby musumeyau would do. (I guess my mind says "little" partly because Ebi-chan is so short <-----)

even though I miss seeing Yua-chan have actual lines too :(

:(

JUNNA HAS TO BE JUDGE. In fine El Halcon tradition.

Aha, I knew there must have been an innate reason why she came to mind! Just like Koro-chan = reporter, because DUH JULIE SKY REPORTER.

Or can we create a new male reporter just so we can put Doi-chan in this cast (AND HAVE SKY REPORTER PLAYING A REPORTER OH SNAP)

Lolol actually in the reporter song I'm pretty sure there was a Male Solo / Female solo bit. It's perfect!! ^^ AND THEN DOI-CHAN BEING A BACKGROUND JUROR, DO WANT.

If it's Kumichou, she also has to show up as a dead person in some video footage or something, IT'S HOSHIGUMI RULES.

I understand these Hoshigumi Rules! And fortunately there are TWO onscreen characters, so she can be Police Guy Who Died or Escaped Convict who was blamed for the murder but also died. Wait weren't there three people who died? Yes there were! Police Guy Who Died, His Brother Who Is Suspicious and Escaped Convict. Take your pick for Junko-san, and then I can still work Rima-chan in as one of the other ones. ^^ We could give Doi-chan one too! :D

Although wait this is going on the assumption of Junko-san Lotta but I want Koro-chan more...

Roland would be CRAZY LIKE MORITZ.

I KNOW. I relent, if we did Phoenix 2 Shiiran would ABSOLUTELY HAVE to be Roland ahah now with the repeat characters we've got half of PW2 worked out ^^;;;

By the way, glad to see your packing is coming along

I got out my suitcase and laid it down on the floor to remind myself to pack. How I convinced myself that that's Doing Something I'm not sure >.>;;;;;;;;
arlecchinic on July 27th, 2010 01:23 am (UTC)
Except for Anna Karenina?

I think Anna's still a little bit young, though, compared to Leona? Or, say, Marguerite?

Anyway if Seara-chan is Legit Good, who would you pick for Leona in the Super Wacked-Out Version?

Speaking of Anna and Marguerite, possibly Marimo! Although Marimo is usually my Legit Good answer for EVERY ROLE EVER, I think if Marimo was Leona, she would be like 'I killed a man' and no one would have any trouble believing her and there would be no plot <------------

Amidst the hilarity Edgeworth kind of has to take himself seriously, so...?

This is a good point! Maybe we will have to have Kaname as Edgeworth after all because I don't think Beni is actually physically capable of taking anything seriously.

Yeah, fair enough that you wouldn't remember all of the characters like us obsessive Sora nuts.

BRUTALLY HONEST CONFESSION TIME. I always, always forget Fujisaki Eri. I'm sorry. I really am. But no matter what she does, and no matter how much I like it, she doesn't stick in my mind. BUT to be fair, I also used to be like this about Nene, so I can change if she gets shifted to Hoshigumi. BUT YES AWESOME.

Are you implying that Monica isn't a star-tracked-enough role, without actually having seen Phoenix 1?

UH APPARENTLY. Actually my eyes tricked me when I checked the role list and went down one and I read it as Moeno Riria being Monica <----------

BUT SINCE I WAS WRONG, we can totes give that to Haruko.

It isn't really a "LOLtimes role" so much as a "fetches and carries for the governor" kind of role.

Let's give it to Wakaba anyway because she'll make it LOLtimes, though possibly not intentionally <------

Just like Koro-chan = reporter, because DUH JULIE SKY REPORTER.

Did Lotta Hart have a lackey or did I imagine that or was that just because in 2 Gumshoe didn't really have anything to do so just sort of followed her around and that's what I'm thinking of? IF SHE HAD A LACKEY, IT SHOULD BE DOI-CHAN.

AND THEN DOI-CHAN BEING A BACKGROUND JUROR, DO WANT.

WITH THOSE GLASSES MAPPUU HAD.

Police Guy Who Died, His Brother Who Is Suspicious and Escaped Convict. Take your pick for Junko-san, and then I can still work Rima-chan in as one of the other ones. ^^ We could give Doi-chan one too!

KUMICHOU HAS TO BE ESCAPED CONVICT. Rima-chan can be Police Guy and Doi-chan can be Suspicious Brother because lol Doi-chan's suspicious face.

Although wait this is going on the assumption of Junko-san Lotta but I want Koro-chan more...

Me too. It has to happen. Sorry. Koro-chan Lotta would be adorable, Kumichou Lotta would be ACTUALLY TERRIFYING.

How I convinced myself that that's Doing Something I'm not sure

It's a start! ... Sort of.

P.S. OH MY GOD JULIE NO EDITS. ;)

Ahahaha, me. Those of us without paid accounts just have to delete and repost <-------
Julie: kazu thinkwao_wao on July 27th, 2010 04:43 am (UTC)
I think Anna's still a little bit young, though, compared to Leona? Or, say, Marguerite?

You're probably right. I don't know the official book age or anything, I just remember she was married and had a kid which in my mind equals "mature". ^^;;;

Although Marimo is usually my Legit Good answer for EVERY ROLE EVER, I think if Marimo was Leona, she would be like 'I killed a man' and no one would have any trouble believing her and there would be no plot

XD XDD XDDDD You're kind of right XDDD;;;;

Maybe we will have to have Kaname as Edgeworth after all because I don't think Beni is actually physically capable of taking anything seriously.

It's bad how I'm almost starting to take this CAST seriously ^^;;;;

BRUTALLY HONEST CONFESSION TIME. I always, always forget Fujisaki Eri.

No hard feelings! There are totally people I do this with in other troupes, Hiromi is the first one who comes to mind but I'm sure there are others. And Eri-chan isn't even as big a star as that, so :)

Did Lotta Hart have a lackey or did I imagine that or was that just because in 2 Gumshoe didn't really have anything to do so just sort of followed her around and that's what I'm thinking of?

No, yeah, Lotta is a free agent with no attachments but Gumshoe essentially did become her lackey in Phoenix 2, you're right ;)

AND THEN DOI-CHAN BEING A BACKGROUND JUROR, DO WANT.

WITH THOSE GLASSES MAPPUU HAD.


DOI-CHAN. GLASSES. EMPHATIC YES.

KUMICHOU HAS TO BE ESCAPED CONVICT. Rima-chan can be Police Guy and Doi-chan can be Suspicious Brother because lol Doi-chan's suspicious face.

It's so funny because Escaped Convict was this short, baby-faced otokoyaku who retired in that show so it's hard to wrap my brain around Junko-san doing it. But now if Koro-chan is Totes Lotta then we have to give kumichou ANOTHER role and I think there's kind of nothing left? I didn't want to make her The Judge, but...

Kumichou Lotta would be ACTUALLY TERRIFYING.

Yeah. Yeah. Speaking of Junko-san and Aoi-san doing the same roles I'm not sure how you all lived through Copacabana. ^^;;;

It's a start! ... Sort of.

See how I didn't reply to anything for like two hours! I went to the doctor! And the bank! I did stuff!

P.S. OH MY GOD JULIE NO EDITS. ;)

AMAZING RIGHT. I previewed it and ACTUALLY got all my mistakes that time ;) And this time...?
arlecchinic on July 27th, 2010 06:51 am (UTC)
I just remember she was married and had a kid which in my mind equals "mature".

I don't really know either, but I remember it as "She's so young and stuck in this marriage but never had a chance to be a girl" etc.

It's bad how I'm almost starting to take this CAST seriously

CONSIDERING THIS STARTED AS "See how ridiculous and awful it would be if Hoshigumi tried to do GyakuSai?" <--------------

There are totally people I do this with in other troupes, Hiromi is the first one who comes to mind but I'm sure there are others.

... Actually I do it with Hiromi too.

It's so funny because Escaped Convict was this short, baby-faced otokoyaku who retired in that show so it's hard to wrap my brain around Junko-san doing it. But now if Koro-chan is Totes Lotta then we have to give kumichou ANOTHER role and I think there's kind of nothing left? I didn't want to make her The Judge, but...

See, I'm imagining Escaped Convict acting that looks like the opening scene of Roget.

You're right, we may HAVE to make Kumichou Judge. Sorry Junna.

Speaking of Junko-san and Aoi-san doing the same roles I'm not sure how you all lived through Copacabana.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW. Although actually she is kind of motherly and sweet.

See how I didn't reply to anything for like two hours! I went to the doctor! And the bank! I did stuff!

I posted a letter to Renta and had a fight with my dad - you win!

I previewed it and ACTUALLY got all my mistakes that time

I am waiting for you to fix your italics tags on the Rentacha entry before I reply, because I Care.

CONSIDERING THIS STARTED AS "See how ridiculous and awful it would be if Hoshigumi tried to do GyakuSai?"

What it STARTED as was Tomomin!Phoenix, and that is still an extremely ridiculous idea. Even if we were "realistic" and switched it to Kaname!Phoenix and Tomomin!Edgeworth -- super LOLWINCE -- the prospect of anyone in Hoshigumi (really anyone else in the company) as Phoenix Wright is still utterly preposterous. :P

Actually I do it with Hiromi too.

*coughs*

See, I'm imagining Escaped Convict acting that looks like the opening scene of Roget.

Ahahahaha!!

I DON'T EVEN KNOW. Although actually she is kind of motherly and sweet.

There are Junko-san charaters that are supposed to be motherly and sweet, and in my opinion Gladys Murphy is not one of them. ^^;;

I posted a letter to Renta and had a fight with my dad - you win!

arlecchinic on July 27th, 2010 10:15 pm (UTC)
the prospect of anyone in Hoshigumi (really anyone else in the company) as Phoenix Wright is still utterly preposterous.

NO WAIT I'VE WORKED IT OUT. We have actually proved our point exactly! Which was that the same show done by Hoshigumi instead of Soragumi would become something that I would love and would hold significantly less appeal for you (not because of particular actress-squee, but as a whole production) and the fact that I am like "Wait, but we've turned this Phoenix into something that I really think would be amazing and would work!" just proves it! ...OR SOMETHING, do you see what I am trying to say it is early. 8AM lecture D:

There are Junko-san charaters that are supposed to be motherly and sweet, and in my opinion Gladys Murphy is not one of them.

Maybe less motherly, more insane aunt who drinks too much at Christmas-ly <---

I actually made a 恋愛/蓮愛 joke in my letter to Renta <----- Not what you were asking about right.

Also it is 8:15 and the lecturer isn't here yet.
Julie: eriko alec dorkywao_wao on July 28th, 2010 02:53 am (UTC)
*laughs* You are totally right, we did prove your point X3 I could seriously get behind a lot of these casting choices, but as a whole I'm like "...but wait no."

Still waiting for that Secret Hunter cast ;)

And no that isn't what I was asking about, of course, but you don't have to tell me.
arlecchinic on July 28th, 2010 04:30 am (UTC)
I DID IT instead of my reading :-" Catching up on comments, then posting, then seeing if I have time to post something else hilarious, and then uni (again). (An 8AM and a 4PM lecture what is that I ask you.)

Spot on with choices for Edgeworth and Gumshoe (I'm personally favoring Rurika for Gumshoe though ^_~)

But honestly, I'd be tons happier if they adapted some stuff from the third (or better yet, fourth) games.

Old(er) Phoenix. Gosh, it'd be so awesome if they had Tomu guest in that. XD
