My day and Soragumi news  
My day, which I need to write about in detail at a later date:

7:30AM - Kimu Cafe Break
10:00AM - Alice-chan iri
10:20AM - Met kasaii and palais (and Manda)
11:00AM ~ 2:00 PM - Elisabeth, general squeeing with Manda, Liz and Angela
2:00PM ~ 4:00PM - Petit Museum, Hakataza / Bow casting news, QR, Cafe Terrace, roughly in that order
4:00PM ~ 6:00PM - Met up with Tegan briefly before she went to de, sat around vending machines in Garden Fields and chatted / wrote letters, accidentally watched Masako & Eriko de, etc.
6:00PM ~ 7:00PM - Demachi standby, chatted with Harada-san, last demachi before Alice-chan goes to Tokyo
7:30PM ~ 10:30PM - 5 people and 3 hours of karaoke

All in all a pretty up and down and very full day. I'm quite tired. But I feel compelled to say at least something about summer for Soragumi.

Very early on I came to the conclusion that Hakataza would be better for Alice-chan. The Bow "lead" is not a romantic lead but a "young girl", and Alice-chan has done quite enough (*cough*younger sisters*cough*) young girls.

Plus no one else in Soragumi has the star power to be nibante musumeyaku in a revue. If Alice-chan had been in Bow, that would mean someone else was getting nibante musumeyaku experience in Hakataza... And that would only mark Alice-chan's position as all the more tenuous. Ignoring the fact that Apasionado was originally performed by a troupe with only tenuous musumeyaku positions anyway.

Still, I'll admit I suffered a pang of jealousy -- for about 5 seconds -- at Seiko. (I had been strongly predicting Tara-chan and not even considered Seiko.) Apparently it doesn't matter that she played a different part in the original cast.

But it's not a romantic lead. So it's okay. I'm not overthinking what this early announcement means. It's not a real lead... That's what I'm telling myself...

Tomochin in Bow is a welcome surprise. For the record I don't expect her to be the "new Edgeworth"; I expect her to be a different prosecuting lawyer / villain. Mii-chan... could be Gumshoe again (following Phoenix all way to California?!) or could be a different character (like Seiko). Same goes for Aoi-san as Lotta / not Lotta.

The lack of Dai-chan!Larry, however, is a little saddening. The inclusion of Kou Akemi is interesting. Oh, and Kai-chan is a welcome surprise too. (Edits: And ERI-CHAN OMG!) But no Monchi!Juror... Oh well, I'll get to make eyes at her AND Ten-chan at Hakataza.

Ban-san in Hakataza. Mmmmm. ♥ Susshii-san and Ayumi-san also in Hakataza makes Aoi-san de facto kumichou for Bow again ("again" after Second Life :). I can't really predict the Hakataza play half, but...

Micchan, Tamatama, Tomoe, Masako, Dai-chan, Chii-chan, BonBon and Akkii in Hakataza means the possibility of any and all of them being in drag in the revue. Actually any and all Soragumi otokoyaku in drag would be fine with me ARE YOU LISTENING, HANKYUU GODS.

If I controlled this performance I'd probably make Micchan a vampire and Alice-chan her hapless victim.

And if I controlled this performance I'd make Dai-chan the one who impregnates Alice-chan (I'm having a hard time imagining a Sora otokoyaku in Mirio's place) but is unfortunately eaten by lions... No wait, no, I'd probably skip the lions altogether and instead make the villagers dance fight against each other like in Red Hot Sea.

...That was kind of fun, I amused myself. Now to wait for Hankyuu make lots of changes and weird casting choices and throw me for a loop again.

The only thing that's certain right now is that no one else is being transferred in... at least not before the next Grand Theater show. Sigh.

Some Japanese fans are predicting Godot for Tomochin. Which I'm going to say if Takarazuka does it right, Tomochin will look goddamn /cool/

This surprises the be-schnookins out of me. Seiko has almost exclusively--with a couple of notable exceptions--played the roles of older ladies in the shinjin kouen roles, so I was sure she was being groomed as another of the long-staying onee-san like Amase Izuru.

Plus, she's never lead a shinjin or even gotten a very big role in one. Then again, she's still got a year left as a kakyuusei, so maybe they're going to push her in the next one.

Truthfully I hope not. I'm pulling for Alice, too, and I like Seiko in roles like Madame Wolf. She was good at that one.

I guess I've kind of seen the Seiko promotion building. Her first role in Soragumi was a prominent speaking and singing part in Junjou. Then, a speaking part equal to Tara-chan's in Paradise Prince. Next, a plot-essential character in Phoenix; arguably better than Re-re's character Maya. Now, the nibante musumeyaku role in the BaraAme shinko, and enjoying about the same amount of attention in Amour as Alice-chan.

I have seen Seiko in her Bow lead with Kimu, but not her Madame Wolf. I should get my hands on that. :)

Mii-chan for sanbante? Mii-chan for having an even bigger part? With more stage photos? *lusts after the one* Mii-chan for having, dare I say it, a love interest??

Yes. Yes yes yes.

I'm excited for all of this, honestly. I'm glad the way things worked out.

*laughs* I feel almost special that I'm special guest in your entries enough that I don't need an lj tag XD

I had a great day yesterday, though <3 I needed it <3

You already know my thoughts on this *_* Plus we've seen how WELL they go together in BaraAme/Amour

Micchan, Tamatama, Tomoe, Masako, Dai-chan, Chii-chan, BonBon and Akkii in Hakataza means the possibility of any and all of them being in drag in the revue. Actually any and all Soragumi otokoyaku in drag would be fine with me ARE YOU LISTENING, HANKYUU GODS.

OMG I JUST REALIZED THAT THEY'LL PROBABLY GIVE SUSSHII SAN NEGRO ROSA

Hehe, yeah, don't think that didn't occur to me. Drag!Susshii-san would be... interesting...
