I'm back  
I'm pretty disappointed by the near-absence of anything senshuuraku-related on my f-list.

Oh well. I suppose I knew Tani and Ume-chan weren't as popular as Touko and Asuka.

I had an amazing time. In the middle it looked like I might not have an amazing time, but I joined up with my club and stood and we chatted until our feet went numb and when the taidansha finally came out, it was amazing.

Also, because of the way Tani Club took up all parts of the street, I was in a direct line about 25~30 people away from utena1409. :) We did manage to meet up, and sailortelevator kindly kept me company for a few hours before my night bus left.

I'm sorry I couldn't meet up with O'young and her friends, though. I ran through three stations but couldn't make it back from my test before the end of intermission.

Anyway.

Everyone was lovely, lovely, lovely. I didn't cry until Eriko came out and I started thinking about Teffy... But it was comforting that the two club members next to me burst into tears too.

Watching Masami, Yucchi-san and Ume-chan was pretty emotional too. Tani was just... Tani. XD Her car. XD (By the way, this is Ume-chan's "let me leave already, photographers" face. ;P)

So many more stories I could tell.

Alice-chan was lovely, lovely, lovely. She MC-ed at Eriko's farewell party again.

And I'll see her tomorrow, because they only got one day of break before Ooeyama shuugoubi. T_______T;;;

She's the new E to Bun writer in Kageki ♥ Loosely translated, her column title is "Alice in Revueland" ♥

I have so so so many things I want to say to her tomorrow, I don't even know where to start.

Speaking of Kageki, Yuuhi is already featured in the "which one are you, A or B?" section. This went on sale on Tani's retirement day. Burn.

(The question is "Where would you like to go, (A) Outer Space, or (B) Deep in the Sea?" Everyone picked "outer space" except Asako. Somehow even the question manages to feel ironic re: the cosmos.)

And the Star File has been changed, and people have already edited the Wiki, and sigh.

An era has ended. A new era is beginning. I have to try to be positive and stay strong.

Es ist Zeit zu Leben.: Mizu & Tonami // Don't cry my love.violet_tango on July 6th, 2009 05:32 am (UTC)
I feel reminded of Tonami's last day when reading your entry...
one can't understand how things just go on as usual, but they do.
It's wonderful that you were able to be there for raku in Tokyo. <3

I just had a first look at the pictures, and Tani's car didn't fail to be pure love again. (Now let's pretend she drives that one in private :P)

I noticed that too *is confused* (My excuse is that I was out of town for the 4th of July -_-;)

She's the new E to Bun writer in Kageki ♥ Loosely translated, her column title is "Alice in Revueland" ♥

I saw that on the contents page. The name is so cute! ♥

She MC-ed at Eriko's farewell party again.

Oooh, you got to go again! I'm sure it was an emotional affair, but I'm glad you got to go and I'm looking forward to hearing about it later.

And I'll see her tomorrow, because they only got one day of break before Ooeyama shuugoubi. T_______T;;;

I had heard about this earlier and am very not happy. Even if you take out the factor of physical exhaustion, it can't be easy for either 1) the soragumisei or 2) Yuuhi and Sumika to have rehearsals with a new top combi begin less than 48 hours after taidan :/

I'm interested in eventually hearing your thoughts about the Tokyo theater. It's your first time, right?
Juliewao_wao on July 6th, 2009 05:42 am (UTC)
I didn't see the show, nor did I go to Eriko's farewell party, unfortunately. (I just know about the latter because Harada-san told me.)

My schedule went night bus -> tiny bit of iri-watching -> Japanese test -> mad dash back to theater -> missing everyone and angsting about it -> joining up with my club -> 3 1/2 hours of standing -> demachi -> post-de with Debbie and a bit of Anne -> night bus. T_____T;;;

(sorry for the edits >.>;;)

tanniiii.... ;__;

i was at the toy store the other day, too bad i didn't see the exact model of the car... :3

yosh! let's.

We almost made it to the retirement parade, but health issues took priority :( I wanted to see that car!

I have to write up a BaraAme review, because the show was amazing - I didn't think anyone could sizzle as much as Tani and Ume-chan, and in that tango in Amour, Ume-chan was stunning. Each time one of the taidansha was on stage, I was just stunned that Cosmos is losing so many talented people. I think I have a new troupe to follow closely :)

You surely know that I'll post about senshuuraku once I have the time to do so! ;_; (Right now I should be packing T_T )
It was so so so great to meet you, really! ;_; Even when we only had like 15minutes together I'm very happy I finally got the chance to meet you in person. ;_;

Well, my excuse is I JUST GOT A NEW CAT. ♥

But thank you for linking to those pictures of Ume, the first I've seen of o-raku. As always she looks amazing in wafuku. I'm glad to see the tradition of taidansha being heart-rendingly beautiful was maintained so strongly.

I have to try to be positive and stay strong.

Three words: Alice in Revueland. ♥ ♥ ♥
Juliewao_wao on July 6th, 2009 02:05 pm (UTC)
So I saw!! Sort of. I promise I will look at your pictures properly later, because NEW CAT is immensely exciting ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm pretty disappointed by the near-absence of anything senshuuraku-related on my f-list.
Possibly because of 4th activities? DX I actually thought about them, though: I saw a blinged out car while driving and thought, "Tani's car totally pwns yours. Wait, will Tani have a different car for this raku? WAIT. IT'S RAKU. ;____;"

I'm tickled by Alice's column <333

I'd send you hugs, but I'm kinda sicky. Oh hell, they're internet hugs, I can put an anti-virus on them XD *sends non-sicky hugs of love lovelove*
Jen: Soragumicaithion on July 6th, 2009 01:31 pm (UTC)
I posted! *is proud* Because Tani's car is love yet again. She reminds me of my Aussie co-workers and their blinged out drifters. ... I can so see Tani drifting as a hobby, now that she can do semi-dangerous things again. ;)

Crap, I totally forgot about Kageki. I'll have to go pick it up tomorrow♥

Glad you got to meet up with people, and got back safe. The ride home is always a killer, isn't it?
Juliewao_wao on July 6th, 2009 02:03 pm (UTC)
It made me happy that you posted ♥

...now that she can do semi-dangerous things again. ;)

Tani. Drifter. XD XD XDDD!!!

The bus home was inferior to the bus there, so yeah it was harder... But then again I was immensely tired anyway. ^^;;; I was impressed that I slept long and soundly enough to dream on a night bus...
Jencaithion on July 6th, 2009 02:36 pm (UTC)
Reminds me that I was wondering about Oeyama rehearsals, since there was less than a month between raku and shonichi. Poor things. At least the principles had a little longer to rehearse, though.

Lol, I can totally see it too. Especially since she says herself that she is a horrible driver and never uses the mirrors. ^^;
And about the "dangerous things" I'll never forget how at the Parapuri Ochakai she was sooo happy she can ride a bicylce on stage and that she actually would like to come to the theatre by bicycle but then thought about it again and said "oh, well, I guess it's too dangerous...and how should I do irimachi that way?" XD

Ms. Brittladybretagne on July 6th, 2009 02:05 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you got to go and has as good a time as can be expected. I still just don't know what to say about the whole thing. ;___;

It's no fun either way, trust me. Seeing all the people who never before seemed to care a drop declaring fervently that their lives are now over is miserable in its own way. I didn't post - partly because at this point thinking about anyone's taidan raku makes me very sad - but I was thinking about you guys. <3

And I'll see her tomorrow, because they only got one day of break before Ooeyama shuugoubi

Good god. I thought it was bad when Hoshigumi only had like one week... :/

And the Star File has been changed, and people have already edited the Wiki, and sigh.

I know. *hugs* The Wiki thing in particular nearly killed me a couple different times.

THANK YOU. (Given that you already have a husband, I'm assuming that marriage is out of the question? XD Ah well). THANK YOU. The level of histrionics over retirements by people who before this didn't seem to actually care that much has been driving me up the wall for quite a while.

July 5 morning
It's great to know that you saw parade at that night.

BTW,

My friend Sammy was in the oppiste side corner.
That means you might show on the DV recorder screen.....
But I didn't find out where you are at that time.......

There are some picture in July 5 morning.

I keep meaning to update with the pics but... I'm slow. I'm getting there though. :P They will come! :D

It was so nice to meet you and Ann. <3
