Blah blah non-Soragumi blah blah Soragumi ;D  
Julie, 2:30 PM -- "Well, Alice-chan's out of the running for Yukigumi top musumeyaku."

(Less than?) Two hours later, Aihara Mika gets announced as top.

Mika-chaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnn ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I love Mika-chan. I actually probably love her more than Nacchan; she's just more my "type". So I'm not thinking about how young she is (I keep thinking she's an 89th and not 90th o_O) or what she'll be like with Mizu and just focusing on YAY MIKA-CHAN TOP.

But speaking of Mizu... "screwball comedy"?? HELL YES. Please let Russian Blue be the awesome comedy that "Je t'aime" wasn't (she says without having actually seen "Je t'aime" >.>).

And Mika-chan :D :D :D

But, uh, Chie and Nene and Hoshigumi doing Taiou Shijinki II?!?!?!

I have to admit, when Becca sent me the announcement one of my first thoughts was "I guess they're doing it again to see if they can create more of a moneymaker the second time". To see if they can make it more profitable this time. I won't say "to see if they can make it *better*", because I honestly I don't really see how they could make it better. They tried their damnedest to compact that drama into a two-hour show. They threw so much money at it and gave it such great costumes and sets and effects. I don't really see what else they could've done...

... Except done it with different actresses. Actresses like Miss Yuzuki "I Have My Own Gravitational Pull" Reon.

... Oh god. I don't think they can make Toyoko Yon Hogae. It'll have to be Kaname.

...Poor Toyoko. :(

Anyway. Last thing unrelated to announcements that I want to say now before I go up to Nagoya again.

Chigi. Chigi is 100% Oscar. I mean, she gave that role 100% of herself. She clearly threw her all into it with the full intention to show the world her own Oscar. And she is completely too pretty for her own good. <3

I don't know what it's going to be like with Kacha, but this role-switch is not like Valencia where they were trying to give two otokoyaku equal stage time in two different roles. No. This is entirely a ploy to showcase Kacha before she goes off to play Elisabeth. Because the one playing Bernard gets comparatively nothing to do.

I'm just hoping I don't cry too much this time around. Seeing Kacha and thinking about Kacha has made me get teary a lot lately.

This is cynical Maggy talking, but I suspect that Taiou II has nothing to do with Taiou I, except that I'm sure the rights cost a fortune so they negotiated the ability to perform it for a certain length of time rather than a certain number of stagings, so they could get their money's worth.
This is most likely what happened with Me and My Girl, and why they pushed it to include Hanagumi and Toho in a two-year span.

... Oh god. I don't think they can make Toyoko Yon Hogae. It'll have to be Kaname.
If I have to keep going through this every few weeks I'm just going to lose it, I swear. I'm almost tempted not to bring LAN cables with me to my aunt's so I just stay off the Internet the next few days.

Yeah, I was wondering about that.

Even still, I wonder if Chie's version will outsell Yuu's >.>

ROFLMAW XDDD I'm going to have to steal that line for a Chie icon.

It's very interesting, thinking about how much money Hankyu must spend on getting rights to these things. And the idea that they rely on musicals that aren't Takarazuka originals as the big money makers.

I'd just like to say that I liked Je t'aime. It wasn't a perfect show, but it was extremely entertaining (and not in the BeruBara way :P)

I agree with this. Tonami's role wasn't the deepest, but I found the characters to be very fun and the overall feeling and story to be very enjoyable.
