pretending I don't care  
So there it is.

Marimo next top of Tsukigumi.

Hankyuu just proved me right. (About one thing, anyway.)

I don't know what they proved, but I'm really happy that they picked SOMEONE and that they picked MARIMO shows that they have very good taste.

Ah, but I'm going to miss her in Hoshigumi. :(

I don't think I ever accused Hankyuu of having bad taste (in top choices, at least?) The order in which they promote them yes, but the girls themselves no.

But I do think that with four new top musumeyaku announced this year and all of them 89th class or below, they'll only get younger from here. That's what this proves to me.

I still think it has to do with suitability. I really couldn't see Kiriyan with Alice, not because either of them is bad, but because their styles seem different to me. When they said Marimo it sort of clicked.

I think it's better for Alice to have a partner that's really suited to her. And I, at least, think there's still time.

Wow, wasn't expecting that one...

*sigh* I wish their timing hadn't been so crappy. You've been having a bad enough day as it is :(

Please don't be sorry. It would be very vain to say that this has anything at all to do with me.

Sorry to butt in on your conversation, but I just have to say that that icon is super cute!

Ah, BUT, Alice is staying in Soragumi. This can never be an entirely bad thing, right?

Of course not! I don't really envy Cate's position, the warring feelings of happy and sad at the same time.

Very true. I guess it's a matter of seeing the positives of both sides?

My feelings are very mixed. On a purely objective level, I think this is good news. Marimo is young, but not ridiculously so; she'll be in her 6th year in her first play. She's gotten lots of exposure (six leads, plenty of smaller backup at the daigekijou and bow), so they're not promoting someone without experience, either.

But personally, I was really hoping for Alice, and I'm not saying that 'cause I'm talking to you. She and Kiriyan would have been great together, both capable of serious roles and comedy, of acting and singing and dancing.

Then again, I just have never seen Marimo at all, so I can't say who I'd "prefer". Just that I was hopeful for a girl I'm a fan of. *sigh*

Congrats to Marimo, though, and I look forward to seeing her talents!
