Maeraku: Glad to be seeing this one more time.  
Sometime in the midst of the endless crouching, I hit my second wind, and felt very calm, and everything was clear.

Then when I stood back up again I felt dizzy and I think I seriously may have permanently damaged my feet. Why is maeraku the ONLY day we've had to go BACK in line after seeing our own girl off?!?!

I may or may not even sleep much tonight, but in order to get to bed soon I'll be brief about the sayonara show for now.

Set list (may contain errors as far as the order):

"Sora Fantasista!!"

The cue started playing while Susshii-san was still finishing up talking about Tani, but Asu-chan came out in the 'Ascargot' outfit with the big book, and traded Susshii-san's folder for it, and Susshii-san must have read Marietta-san's lines but I don't remember because the music was playing and I was crying.

The curtain came up and... they were all in their 'Dancing for You' costumes. Alice-chan told me at de that this was because the original Fantasista costumes are no more ;_______; They were overused between Mura, Tokyo and tour -- too many sweat stains and such -- so I guess they've been thrown away :( :( :(

Tani messed up the lyrics "tatakau hito (you, you, you), gambaru hito (you, you, you)", etc. Maybe she'll get it right tomorrow. :P

Oops. Trying to be brief.

"Cinderella Rock"

Performed by Tani, Tomu, Micchan, and the 'Six Carats' (Tomochin, Masako, Eriko, Mii-chan, Dai-chan, Chii-chan). Unsurprisingly, Tani went around and flirted with people in the first row. Then she left partway through the number to go change.

"Ai no Bolero"(?)

Aka that song Rico sings in Copacabana that ends with him standing ominously over Lola on the bed (er, sans the Lola and the bed ^^;;;). In the blurb Susshii-san read about Tani she said she loved the bit where she loosens her tie, so during the number Tani totally over-exaggerated that part.

Blonde Rico was strange. But I enjoyed taidansha in purple pair-dancing in the background -- Risa x Asu-chan (batchmates), Kanachin x Rabi-chan (batchmates), Yucchi-san x Sakkun (78th-class musumeyaku x 90th-class otokoyaku X3).

Masami solo.

Probably from 'Age of Innocence', because it's practically the only Soragumi show I haven't seen, and I didn't recognize the song. It had lyrics like "I love you, I think of you", and Masami was in a Victorian-Era-ish pale yellow dress.

"Hitomi no Naka no Houseki"

In the proper Valencia costumes, although Ume-chan's wig was different (sasuga), and there were no background dancers, and it ended with them still together.

Yucchi-san sang where Miki-chan had been. I almost cried.

"Butai e no Passport"

Aka the song from Understudy about loving the stage. Performed by Eriko of course, in a blue suit that reminded me of the Stella Maris shinko.

Hysterical crying from myself and at least two people around me.

"Good Morning"

With Tomu and Micchan in tuxes -- Micchan saying Cosmo's lines, Tomu saying Don's lines (my wish almost came true?!) and Ume-chan in a white dress with a big pink section going down the left side.

They tap-danced. It was, indeed, a good chunk of the original number.

Just as they were finishing up, Tani came out to sing...

"Singin' in the Rain"

Across the ginkyou in a white outfit of her own with a big purple section going down the left.

When she got to the end of the number on the right side of the stage, Tomoe came out in a newsboy cap... holding a football.

"Life" (The Last Party)

Tani cradled the football and her voice almost broke at the beginning of the number. Her cheeks were wet at the end.

Logic dictates that there must have been something that allowed Tani time to change between this and the next song, but I seem to have a hole in my memory (and Fukuda-san's is worse than mine >.>;;).

"A/L"

Tani in a gold costume, musumeyaku in pink dresses. Tani stroked Alice-chan's cheek/chin briefly and also flirted with Ecchan.

Halfway through the number she left and Ume-chan came out in a gold dress I've never seen before. The choreography was totally different.

"Fantasy"

Aka the otokoyaku dance from Fantasista. In the absence of any other taidansha besides Tani, I... may have ended up watching Monchi.

>.>

<.<

What. She didn't get to be in that number originally. I wanted to see her take on it.

"Bara no Kaori"

All eight non-top taidansha; otokoyaku in black tuxedos, musumeyaku in white dresses. This is Marise's final song from Chunichi Berubara; Ume-chan eventually came in and took over while everyone else gathered in the background, and then Tani came out of the center lift and finished up with Andre's part ("Kono Michi, Kono Ai").

The only other thing I remember is her walking up the staircase, which was lit up to spell YUGA YAMATO.

There were two curtain calls and we ended up doing a standing ovation for the second one. Tani asked us to support them all for one more day, and maybe said some other things.

No more tonight. I feel faint. *crashes*

Aw, thanks for taking the trouble to post. It was sweet to read.

Masami solo.

Probably from 'Age of Innocence', because it's practically the only Soragumi show I haven't seen, and I didn't recognize the song. It had lyrics like "I love you, I think of you", and Masami was in a Victorian-Era-ish pale yellow dress.


Yep, that's from "Age of Innocence". That's the show I saw her in that made me like her.

Thank you for the report!!!!!!

I have to say, I'm disappointed that they used "Bara no Kaori" for the final number, given how unimpressive that show was as a whole. Personally I would have picked either the reprise of "New Life" or Tani's rebirth from "Sora Fantasista."

For better or for worse, BeruBara holds memories for me, and I rather liked the song "Kono Michi, Kono Ai". It has a nice message -- "my love will never change"...

In contrast to the cruel irony of the Understudy song -- "I'll go on acting tomorrow, because I love the stage".

;_____________;

Speaking of, since you were curious about Eriko's farewell party... It was a simple matter; the club e-mailed Teffy asking if she could go, she said unfortunately I can't but it would be great if my friend could, and it was all arranged pretty quickly. *shrugs*

Thanks for the report! I'm so happy Eriko and Masami got their own songs. It's so easy for younger stars to be overlooked for stars, but so far, their retirements have been handled really well.

*hugs* Thank you for the report, darling. *sniffles*

In whole, yay! I was sure they would include Cinderella Rock (or something from Possibility).
They could have left out "Ai no bolero" and put in something from Guys&Dolls though. :/

Tomoe came out in a newsboy cap... holding a football.

"Life" (The Last Party)

Tani cradled the football and her voice almost broke at the beginning of the number. Her cheeks were wet at the end.


T_____________T Oh God, this will be the point I will break down. "Life" is one of my most favourite Tani songs ever...
