Nagina Ruumi Information Overload Attack!!その2  
After some thought, I decided to post these next two separately.

Let's Learn Kacha: By Information (Lesson 2)

"Travel Graph"

This [photo] was taken when I went to Kyoto, during the break after the Takarazuka run of 'Sketches in the Life of Ryoma Sakamoto' ended. In the shinjin kouen I received the role of Katsura Kogorou, so I visited "Ikumatsu" -- the Japanese bed-and-breakfast of Katsura's lover Ikumatsu, located deep in the forest. We were shown "Ikumatsu's Room", which is recorded to have been the place where Katsura was attacked by the Shinsengumi when he had come to meet Ikumatsu. The items which had been made and prepared for the attack still remain there in the room... Literally seeing history with my own eyes gave me goosbumps. Visiting this place allowed me to feel the atmosphere of that time, and I believe I was able to delve even deeper into the role of Katsura Kogorou.

[The picture is of Kacha, Fujisaki Eri (shinko!Ikumatsu) and Otono Izumi (honkouen!Ikumatsu) under a gate that says "Ikumatsu".]

"Word is Power"

"You're battling your own self"

'Understudy' is about people who play understudy roles and is filled with lines and lyrics that resound in the hearts of those who stand on the stage, but among them this lyric in particular has remained in my heart. In this production I received more lines than I ever had before, and because of that during rehearsals I experienced more hardships than I ever had before. In that situation, the first time I saw this lyric in song rehearsals... For an actor "you are battling your own self", and when you run up against a wall, if you think that you can't do it then you can't move forward from there. I felt strongly that in battling the weak parts of myself, I was able to make it over those walls. Even now if during rehearsals I'm worried and unsure, I remember these words and tell myself "I must battle with myself here". I'm very grateful to Tani [Masazumi]-sensei for writing these words.

...I started crying again in the middle of this and had to stop translating for a bit kept crying all through finishing it.

"You're battling your own self"
That's a great line. She's definitely going to have to keep that firmly in her heart for the next couple of months. Even though everything about this newest production of Elisabeth has been crazy, I'm definitely going to be rooting for her ^_^

Read this and your other Kacha Info post, and am duly confirmed in my prior twinges of love based on Understudy and her cute delicate little round face. What a sweet girl.

Can't wait for clips~!
