Catching up again  
Okay, I've caught up with my f-list once again and don't think anyone's mentioned this... The fact that a bunch of recently-announced shows got longer summaries? I haven't read all of them yet.

Just the Mei-chan one.


The whole summary is about Mei.

On the one hand I find this inexplicably more frustrating. On the other hand I no longer really care. Being out of Japan takes a lot of the fight out of me. People were right when they said distance helps.

On the other other hand, I'm extremely stubborn in sticking with my opinions and staying unchanged until the grave. :P

Back to the original point, wtf Mei-chan. Are they actually going to make Beni the girl. Or are they just trying to get my hopes up. Why can't I be excited about whoever the lucky musumeyaku is. Urgh.

Speaking of musumeyaku.

I talked to the kindest and most helpful person in the world this morning, aka sumire_no_hana, who graciously let me use her place as a forwarding address for mail (as well as storing a lot of my stuff >.>;;;)

Anyway she told me I had reijou from YUMEKA AMI.

Asdfkjl she didn't have time to take a picture but she said it's with the white-and-black Rock On! costume.

Ami-chan Ami-chan Ami-chaaaaannnnnnn ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ Gambatte, seriously ☆ ♥ ☆

Waaaaaaah! Omedetouuuuuu! I wanna get reijous tooooo! *pouts*

I did notice how there was just a craptonne of announcements, but I got so excited about Keichan I couldn't make my brain understand the Japanese. It took enough to just read the news stories about RomeoJuliette. xD

Awwwww, you. <3

Concerning the Mei-chan thing: no matter what, it will be awesome. Because it would be awesome to have such a big role for the musumeyaku lead, and because it wouldn't be less awesome to have Queen-of-Crack Beni play such a role.

Concerning distance: I'm happy that it helps.<3

Concerning Ami: <3333333333

I'm sorry to be stubborn about this but yes it is. Less awesome. Stealing a lead away from a proper musumeyaku is always less awesome. On principle. Plus I really, seriously cannot imagine the company making Beni be a girl when they have the chance to make her an overdramatic butler in expensive-looking tuxedos instead.

*shrugs* We'll see.

(Ami-chan ♥)

Actually, I doubt that they'll make Beni Mei-chan. But I'm still cracking up imagining it.
I am with you concerning taking the chance from a musumeyaku to get the lead role. But meanwhile, I still think Beni playing a role like that would be awesome, and that's what I am talking about. It's not that I am pro-musumeyaku-ignoring, I am definitely not, and if you know how easily I get grumpy about Mizu/Yumiko fangirling because I adore Mizu/Tonami, and in particular Tonami so much, I guess you know I do. And if I were to choose between Beni getting the male or the female lead, I would definitely choose the male lead for her.

I know you are stubborn on this, but I still love you. <3333
And it's not that I don't understand you. Musumeyaku absolutely deserve proper treatment, and whoever will get to be Mei-chan will be a lucky girl at least in terms of role size I think. :)
arlecchina: Who?arlecchinic on September 14th, 2010 08:59 pm (UTC)
This is one of those times when I'm leaving a comment instead of making a post, but no one seems to have remarked on the suspicious lack of Tybalt at the R+J press conference.

Also, I think it was unfair to give Mimi the most adorable costume in the whole show and Ami the least, but at least Mimi is totally rocking that look.

Oh, and as for Mei-chan (THE POINT OF THIS POST) I totally hadn't noticed <------

But I figure in that case it'll be Haruko. I'm 90% 75% sure they wouldn't make Beni a girl, and Haruko is getting pretty popular these days.
Julie: alice katherine writewao_wao on September 14th, 2010 09:11 pm (UTC)
THAT IS VERY SUSPICIOUS, COME TO THINK OF IT. Are they actually considering Mattsu? Just trying to torture us? Or is four a crowd at a press conference? (No, that can't be it, the '09 Elisabeth fiasco had way more than that.)

Also, I think it was unfair to give Mimi the most adorable costume in the whole show and Ami the least

So true ;____;

and as for Mei-chan... I totally hadn't noticed

I was wrong! They do at least mention Rihito's name <-------

I figure in that case it'll be Haruko.

You know I liked her in the band member role more than the lead in Rhapsody? The heroine was just so bland, I didn't get a great impression of her or Ririka...

(P.S., am translating Studio 54 summary now. Kiriyan is a tabloid writer/photographer who ran away from an orphanage. Dying.)
arlecchina: But what I can't decidearlecchinic on September 14th, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
I was thinking more about Masaki's absence from upcoming Tsukigumi shows, actually. Can't have two nibante forever...

Uni time, will reply to rest in like half an hour.
quinquinquinquin on September 14th, 2010 09:28 pm (UTC)
Are they actually considering Mattsu? I'm leaning towards Masaki as a guest from Tsukigumi. But I'm seldom right in my predictions.
Jencaithion on September 14th, 2010 11:51 pm (UTC)
They've already announced the full cast list for R&J, and no Masaki. So I don't think that's likely.
Julie: kacha bernard glarewao_wao on September 15th, 2010 12:35 am (UTC)
I have to admit, though, I don't remember if Kacha's special appearance in Elisabeth was announced before or after the cast list...

...No. No, this is silly, why would they do something like that? ... >.>;;;;
Jen: All Wound Upcaithion on September 15th, 2010 03:44 am (UTC)
It was before. They announced her and Lucheni and the Rudolphs before the full cast was even announced.
quinquinquinquin on September 15th, 2010 06:02 am (UTC)
So was all the guest starring in 2004 a very curious one-off following in the footsteps of New-Senka or have there been regular occurrences of guest performances earlier. (Not counting umpteen different Oscars and Andres.)
Jen: Bowie - Hmmm....caithion on September 15th, 2010 07:07 am (UTC)
Yes, but I'm not saying I think the guest-starring is unlikely in principle, just that I think those kinds of guest stars are usually announced before the cast list goes up, or when the cast list goes up, not after.

The only exceptions I can think of are when they sometimes add new hatsubutaisei after they've been placed in a troupe....
quinquinquinquin on September 15th, 2010 07:25 am (UTC)
I wasn't around during 2004 so I was wondering a bit how they did it then. But announcing all at once does make sense.
So maybe not announcing Tybalt now is a way to avoid announcing a set nibante...? Or I should probably stop over-analyzing what's going on.
arlecchina: Disaster's in the air!arlecchinic on September 14th, 2010 11:03 pm (UTC)

I didn't notice they'd changed!

I AM CONFUSED BY STUDIO 54. Mostly because SAITOU-SENSEI HOLLY IS A GIRL'S NAME I ASSUMED THAT WAS MARIMO. But is Mirio going to be Z-Boy? *____________________________________________*

You know I liked her in the band member role more than the lead in Rhapsody?

I think you might have mentioned it ;) Most people liked her as both though, at least in my circle.
Julie: alice dorothy naughtywao_wao on September 15th, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
*pats pats*

Who changed what? Oh, the summaries, right (edits of doom return!! ;P)

Holly = And I wanted to call him Holy Ashley 8D We'll put it to a vote, I guess?

Mirio rock star = well Masaki already got her turn at it...

...I suddenly had this weird image of Mirio being one of those cynical, over-sensationalized rock stars who turns to drugs as his only comfort. Why does my brain want to see this? @____@

I think you might have mentioned it ;)

Sorry, I honestly can't remember what conversations I had with who last month =_______=

I can't remember where, but I did see a picture of Ami wearing the same dress somewhere today! So maybe they get the same dresses but had different ones for the press conference?

Very true though... No Tybalt... I reckon we'll find put what's going on soon though, they can't leave us on tender hooks for mch longer! xD
Julie: alice katherine cutewao_wao on September 15th, 2010 12:27 am (UTC)
The official header on the website has both girls in the masquerade outfit. Maybe that's what you're thinking of? (If you find a full picture of Ami-chan in another dress, though, let me know *______*)
Jen: Bowie - Hmmm....caithion on September 15th, 2010 03:53 am (UTC)
There's this one? Have you seen it?

I honestly can't tell them apart, but if Ami's in the white dress in the press conference, then this bigger one from the poster shoot is different, I guess?
Tellychan: musumeyaky lovesailortelevator on September 15th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
Yes, that's the one I meant. ^_____^ Haha I can see what you mean, they do look a lot alike with the hair and the makeup. So pretty!
Jen: Oh my gawd!caithion on September 14th, 2010 11:55 pm (UTC)
*teases* If they change the working title, I'm making you change all the back-links, oh hasty one. ;p (Not that they ever do.....)

Yay for reijou! ♥
Julie: alice ed disguisewao_wao on September 15th, 2010 12:25 am (UTC)
Not that they eeeeever do. :P In fact, it makes the least sense in a case where the title is something already established and well-known in another medium. But sure *raises right hand* I swear to change all five back-links if they change the title. ;)

(*edits* Really I was only impatient because I translated the summary and needed somewhere to put it ^^;;)

Jencaithion on September 15th, 2010 03:56 am (UTC)
They never change the "working titles", but they delight in tweaking the others, don't they? *sigh* I hadn't even noticed they changed the 達 kanji in "Gentleman" until the other day.....

Which all reminds me that you wanted to change the "Rhapsody" page, didn't you?
Julie: tomu phoenix objectionwao_wao on September 15th, 2010 05:13 am (UTC)
...Why would there have been a 達 kanji in "Gentleman"??

But yes I did want it changed... So it looks like you went and did it for me ^__^;;; ♥ ♥ ♥ Speaking of Suzuki-sensei shows, did I ever tell you how I wanted to take "Ace Attorney" out of all the Phoenix 1 pages? *grins* No, kidding, I don't know if it's really worth it. Just one more nitpicky thing for us obsessive Wiki-ers...
Jencaithion on September 15th, 2010 07:09 am (UTC)
"An Officer and a Gentleman"

At some point between the first announcement and when they made the chirashi, it changed from 愛と青春の旅達 to 愛と青春の旅だち.
Julie: alice ed disguisewao_wao on September 15th, 2010 02:31 pm (UTC)
...Are you sure? It should be 旅立ち if anything.
Jencaithion on September 15th, 2010 02:33 pm (UTC)
I know, right?

But look.
Jencaithion on September 15th, 2010 02:35 pm (UTC)
Ack, sorry, I see what you mean. And, yes, this is what happens when I post when half asleep. It was 旅立ち, but they changed it.
Julie: alice reimei generalwao_wao on September 15th, 2010 02:37 pm (UTC)
Lol okay now that that's cleared up ^_^;;; That is very sneaky of them. I can't think of another example but I'm sure that kind of nitpicky kanji-changing had happened before, huh :\
tsuki_in_sora on September 15th, 2010 01:53 am (UTC)
Yuzurun as Mei-chan . . . well that's a laugh all right ^^;; But I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen. But if an otokoyaku were to do Mei-chan then it'd probably be someone like Rurika or anyone on that line . . . not that I want her to, but yeah.

And it could be Otoha Minori or Kaga Ririka or Saotome Wakaba (seriously what happened to that girl?) or whatever. Or another transfer.

Oh, Ami . . . I know Hankyuu has put a L-O-T of responsibility on you, but don't let that hold you back! Ganbareeee :D

I have such a thing for Romeo & Juliet, and am pleasantly surprised how lovely and Juliette Ame looks. Ahhhh. More, please. ♥
