In today's news...  
Wow, only one person on my friend list made a post and no one mailed my phone about the Hanagumi MiiMai casting.

What, you guys are all sick of Hankyuu Wacky Role Assignment Theater? :P

I'll admit. My first reaction was... happiness. Makkun!Jackie will be the most hilarious thing ever!! Jen totally called it; we were talking about MiiMai ages ago and she said "they won't make Miwacchi do another female role... What if they give it to Makkun?"

I haven't posted about Cordoba yet, but I'll give you guys a Red Hot Sea II "spoiler" -- in the rockette I got two eyefuls of Makkun Legs and I discovered I love Makkun!Rockette almost as much as I love Kacha!Rockette. And that's saying something.

But the funny thing is, I don't love Makkun because I think she's zomg so talented and totally deserves to be a top star.

I just love her Big, Tall and Dumb look. XDDDD I love it so much, I can't help but grin at her huge doofy face. ^^;;;

Anyway. Back to MiiMai casting.

Sou!Jackie? Almost equally as exciting!! Somehow I can imagine Sou making a really good onnayaku. And having fun with a role like Jackie. One of the few things I got out of Oguri! was being pretty darn impressed with her voice.

Miwacchi as Gerald makes sense, and Makkun!Gerald is about on par with Masaki/Mirio!Gerald, so none of it is really surprising.

Honestly, the lack of Ichika!Jackie isn't even surprising. I've become rather pessimistic these days about the treatment of musumeyaku, especially ZOMG SO OLD LOL musumeyaku like those of the 85th class.

Clearly the only lucky 85th musumeyaku was Emi Kurara, and even then I don't consider "six years in the company" to be very lucky.

But I digress. What was I talking about again? Oh, MiiMai casting, well Sou and Miwacchi in mustaches getting drunk with Matobun should be entertaining too.

I have a ticket lined up on a day with Makkun!Jackie. >:D (But now I'm tempted to get another one for the other cast too.)

Oh, and this was announced before I went to work, but since I didn't squee about it before... MONCHI SKY FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! NOW I WILL NEED ALL OF HER NEWS WEEKS IN THE COMING YEAR. AND WHAT IF SHE DOES OTHER CUTESY FEATURES. ZOMGZ.

I didn't realize she and Aa-chan had created a mini-combi after the "couples" scene in Phoenix, but apparently they did?!?! I guess Aa-chan has always gone to whatever performance Monchi was in... 93RD BABY COMBI FOR THE WIN. *_____________*

Now I have some letters to write, most importantly one for iri tomorrow. :)

Sou will have fun with the role indeed. That's pretty much my only reaction.
Jen: Peter Lorrecaithion on May 25th, 2009 02:32 pm (UTC)

It's Me and My Girl, unfortunately. I wasn't even really excited when Tsuki did it again.

Ugh, the Bug-Eyed-- ... I mean, uh, I'm sure Manato will be an, er, interesting Jackie.

Darn it, why do you have to remind me that I don't actually like MiiMai that much? >.>;;; Oh well, it'll be like the new Elisabeth -- the parts are greater than the whole...?

The only one that really excites me is Sou, and since she has two big roles it makes four times the usual squee, so it's set that this is something I'll be watching out for. :D
bluerevue: mattsu ichika combibluerevue on May 25th, 2009 08:21 pm (UTC)
Eh. I still have pretty much the same feeling about this show that I have about Elisabeth. Vaguely interested in what the leads do, and otherwise mostly a bit resentful for the sake of my favorites. =( Makkun... yeah, sorry, can't get too thrilled. Not when none of my favorite non-top musumeyaku have roles, and Mattsu's not even in the cast.

Sigh. Impossible as it would have been, Mattsu would have made an awesome John or Gerald, and Ichika or Remi would have been fabulous as Jackie...
Jen: Mattsu - Hoshikage no Hitocaithion on May 26th, 2009 03:01 am (UTC)
Yes, but the reason Mattsu's not in the cast-! Now, that is a happy thought. (Go, Mattsusai, Go!)
ceteranna: MattsuIchikaceteranna on May 26th, 2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but don't they usually keep whoever's in the cast of the PariSai in the regular show as well? Or did they just do that for the Hoshigumi one?

Oh well. At least she'll get a bit of a rest.
Juliewao_wao on May 26th, 2009 04:08 pm (UTC)
Last year Tomochin also suffered from "you're inconvenient for us right now so we're going to give you Parisai instead of a role in anything".
Jen: Bowie - Hmmm....caithion on May 28th, 2009 02:49 am (UTC)
I'm guessing the new compressed scheduling doesn't help with the overlap....

I didn't see it until late... then fell asleep in the middle of editing the wiki ^^;

I'm kinda excited for Makkun! Jackie for the same reasons you are :P And looking forward to Sou!Jackie too! (I'm seeing it on a Sou!Jackie day)
