Just random things to report.  
For those of you who couldn't see the Ume-chan x Masami x Eriko dinner show poster of amazing before, it's back up.

For those of you who, like me, were quite curious about ticket sales for the new Elisabeth, it didn't completely sell out. Weekday B-seki and a few A-seki here and there, but still.

I'm going to choose to believe Kacha is not completely at all to blame for this. :P *stubbornly holds onto that thought*

And for those of you not counting the days, Phoenix Wright DVD officially went on sale today... but was available in QR yesterday. May Graph also goes on sale today and was not out yesterday.

I'm looking forward to Alice-chan's Fairy Style, hatsubutaisei making stupid name puns, and of course the cover shoot. :D

I'm not looking forward to Phoenix being all over the internet.

Berubara DVD comes out in three days... <3

Probably not. My favorite is the "Koike's gone as senile as Ueda Shinji" theory.
Seriously, based on some of the club emails, I'm starting to wonder. >_> I mean, he's being nice to people. Unheard of! ^_^;;;

BeruBara DVD isn't out yet? Huh.

Nope, Berubara release date is the 23rd.

But Koike-sensei... NICE?! Wow, now I wonder too. o_O;;;

Except the fact that his rehearsals seem to have been running some pretty crazy hours even from the start X_X I can't imagine what things are going to be like when we get close to shonichi
lliri_blanclliri_blanc on April 20th, 2009 09:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, but considering that the lead role is being played by someone who's never done a female role, and one of the principals has to be rehearsed three times as much as usual, that only makes sense.
Today's ended early, didn't it? I saw a "we lied, it's two hours early" email earlier.

I actually still haven't gotten a demachi standby time... which means that it'll likely be sometime around 9 or 10. (granted she didn't go in until 11:20 today, which is later than she's been lately)

But I'm sure with all of the craziness that you mention that the rehearsals will be interesting this time around.... Though they're going full out late from the get-go. I ha to wonder what toll this is going to take by the end of the Tokyo run

(particularly when they start throwing the Kageki special rehearsals in there)
lliri_blanclliri_blanc on April 20th, 2009 09:58 am (UTC)
*checks* Ours said 6pm and there was no follow-up pushing it down. Not yet, anyway. (I have no idea what time it is over there; I'm sleepy and can't do basic math.)
I wonder if Magee isn't stuck going in earlier/staying later because she's in more scenes?

And yeah, the special rehearsals are always nuts. Poor things. ^_^;;
Amandasumire_no_hana on April 21st, 2009 12:28 am (UTC)
So, turns out I was right. Never got a proper standby time, but got a message around 9:30 saying that it appeared that rehearsals had finished. She wound up leaving at about 10 last night ^^;;;; And standby was 8:20 this morning.

I wonder if Magee isn't stuck going in earlier/staying later because she's in more scenes?
That's entirely possible. Especially when you consider the exra scenes they stick them in, like "Milk" and cafe scenes and all.

You know, it also makes you wonder about how things work with proper understudy roles, too...

I completely fail at fangirling...somehow I thought the BeruBara DVD came out on the same day as Phoenix Wright -_-; But yay for Phoenix Wright! <333

As for Kacha...I think there are a number of factors involved, and I wouldn't blame it entirely on her, especially since she is probably having the most difficult time out of anybody :/

I think very little blame would fall on Kacha, except as a small part of the whole Tsukigumi is a troupe without a top musumeyaku - somethings not right-feeling.

If I had to pick one thing to blame I would go for the financial situation in Japan (no matter how tempting it might be to blame evil Hankyu.) I doubt it is easy to run a music theatre in the current situation. If the Japanese are reluctant to spend normally it must be doubly worse now.

Wow. Graph was out yesterday in Tokyo, but I wasn't even looking for it, because it's NEVER out early in Tokyo. Charlotte had to point it out to me. XD

Oh, from what I recall, Yukigumi Elisabeth wasn't sold off in Takarazuka as well. :)
So, that should be no reason to worry at all.
