NSG preliminary script edit DONE.

Aaahhhhh, that was draining. ;______________;

My combi. They are the best. No one will ever, ever, ever come close to TakaHana.

I think one the problems with looking at the past is everyone seems older, more mature. When I entered the fandom, the people who were babies then still seem like babies now -- even if now they've graduated from shinkos or become nibantes or what have you.

Gyah. T____________T

Parts of NSG reminded me about something Alice-chan said at the Nagoya shimbokukai, though. About how Soragumi has a strong sense of pride in their peasant / townspeople sequences. "If it's 市民役, we won't lose to anyone!" she said. Of course at the time the peasants were in Chunichi Berubara, but there's also been NSG, the flashback sequence in Lightning, maybe Pierre, and Berubara 2001 before that... For war in general there was also Reimei... And for non-fighting peasants Valencia, Hououden, Carmen... I guess you could create a pretty broad definition of townspeople if you tried hard enough. ^__^;;

Oh, and last night I may have dreamt about Hanagumi doing a rockette with tap-dancing robots. DON'T ASK ME TO EXPLAIN THESE THINGS, OKAY. @___@;;

Soragumi is basically a really strong ensemble company; it's the type of thing the other troupes don't do nearly as well. It gives them a cohesive dynamic and allows them to share roles more evenly and with more non-star-track people. It's one of the things I like most about the troupe and I wish it were more widely imitated, 'cause honestly, what's the point of having 85-person casts if you're not going to use them? ^_^;;;

yup. when i showed my friend the sword finale dance of The Scarlet Pimpernel, she commented that she prefers sora instead of hoshi. XD maybe that is what she meant when she said that.

i agree. ^^ TakaHana has a charisma that draws you to Sora. hehehe

speaking of NSG... i heard from someone that the song of "One Heart" became some kind of theme song of sora. i'm curious of the lyrics tho...

(can't believe I don't have a TakaHana icon! >_<)
I know what you mean about TakaHana. To me, it always seemed that THEY were Cosmos Troupe, as if there wasn't ever a time when they weren't the tops of Cosmos (no offense to Zunko, of course) and somehow they made this new troupe. And now that they're retired.. Cosmos has completely changed and, I hate to say that I've lost interest in the troupe. Part of this is that I haven't really seen anything post-TakaHana, but the other part is that I didn't feel the need to see anything. I know that must sound horrible, but TakaHana really left a huge void that could not be filled for me in Cosmos.. I miss them so much! ;____;

You ain't the only one. God knows how many people are still crying for O-Hana to return to the stage. And do you remember the outrage when fans heard Wao might play Dracula and bite women other than her? They're just so perfect they were able to do just about anything.

Their loss is only bearable because they're still together. :) Sucks for Zuka, but you just don't get chemistry that special too often. *Shrug*

An outrage for a stage bite? Makes me smile a little. I've never heard of this...but I'm still a newbie from many points of view.

*giggle* Yeah, outrage is much too strong a word. "Worry" would probably fit better. It was people wondering if we should "let" Wao bite other women, and eagerly hoping (even assuming, in some cases) Hana would be Mina.

LOL! A strong word, maybe, but not "much too strong a word"...As far as I've learnt, shifting from "worry" to "outrage" when it comes to 'Zuka fandom is pretty easy. It's like walking the plank on the thin line between "imminent retirement" and "announcement". As a friend of mine would comment "it's emotional stuff we're dealing with, baby" :)

Fandom is an astonishing thing, isn't it? I'm a fan of the HBO series Oz. Recently, when someone said they thought of a character I like as "weak", I disagreed, saying I didn't see him that way and listing episodes to back myself up. As far as I knew, we were having a disagreement over a fictional character, and didn't think any more of it.

The response I got was one of barely-contained fury, where she sneered an "apology" for "obviously hurting my feelings" and insisted on again reiterating that she was RIGHT, though she had no evidence, and that she refused to speak on the subject any longer because I was some kind of emotional wreck over her opinion. O_o Obviously I'd offended her pretty badly. When you love something in fandom, I guess it can be like loving someone personally...

Oh, I guess it's partly due to rudeness and partly a plain "internet thing". When I started using the net, it had been invented only 4 years before and everybody you happened to talk to was more or less your age. Nowadays, I happen to be dragged into arguments, realizing afterwards it was my mistake losing the temper because the "opponent" was a teenager, naturally unaware of some "social rules" you have to deal with. So, well, before responding to offenses, I tend to ask the age of the other person in advance. Especially because I'm temperamental and turning 30 hasn't changed me a bit.

Erhm...are we OT?

Btw, going back to TakaHana, my latest anger is related to learning how derogatory can some "comments by fans" be on retired stars. Now well, I don't expect everybody to like them, but aren't ALL stars meant to retire? I pondered on this as I came by a comment - posted some time ago - about fans writing to stars on purpose to talk badly about other stars or fans. Now, that needs some brain fixing *rolling eyes*

Yeah. It's too bad when people tear others apart. Even if they're stars, they're still real people. It seems...well, mean.
