Iri and Demachi, 10/2  
Standby was 11:30 AM. I was the only cultist around Housing Gardens. The weather was spitty, not-making-up-its-mind kind of rain, but just as Alice-chan (and Harada-san) came, it finally decided to come down in earnest. T_____T;;; My letter got a little wet in Alice-chan's hand :(

She was wearing that purple plaid mini-dress and long, black leggings. Over this, a tight black sweatshirt. Short-cut gray boots with cuffs of fur at the tops. (Soooooo cute, although I wish Japan would get with the program about fur. >.>;;;) Small, sparkly earrings shaped like stars☆ Her hair must've been up again, although it was hard to say when she was carrying a big pink umbrella.

I started with "rehearsals ran late yesterday..." and she confirmed that it had been all auditions, which she had been nervous about... even if she couldn't get what exactly they were for ^^;;; I asked when the results of the auditions would be announced. She said probably today, although she's not sure what there could be -- they have the script already, and there isn't much in the way of other female roles. T_____T I asked if she'd watched the movie, and she said yes, and I commented that I thought it was good -- a true "classic" -- but even in the original there isn't much outside of the main roles. She was like "yeah, but um, the songs seem nice" and "gambarimasu" etc. I responded "gambatte kudasai" appropriately, Harada-san walked her to the door, and Alice-chan waved sweetly ♥

Afterward I talked to Harada-san, who also thought that other roles would be announced today. But she hasn't seen the movie, so I explained to her about the other pithy female characters Alice-chan could possibly do and we bemoaned the situation together.

I also asked her to tell me when she got a standby time for demachi, and if I could I would go.

From there I went to Umeda QR and... bought another Aida program + photobook set. I didn't see how I could not. My angel was lacking; it was my duty to rectify this.

Then I went home and spent the hours mostly cleaning in preparation for jenebi's arrival tomorrow. :D

Close to 5:00PM I got an e-mail saying to be in Mura at 7:30PM. When this time rolled around I was there waiting for instructions, and at 7:40PM I got another mail saying Alice-chan would be out in approx. 15 minutes and to go on standby on the far side of the Hana no Michi.

I was the only one there ;_____; at first. But soon enough other people showed up, and after some shuffling I took my place a good distance behind the five Masako cultists. Fortunately at this point it was no longer raining.

Tegan had mailed me saying Tomu finished at 5:20PM, but I don't know what makes her so special, because eeeeeeeverybody in Soragumi started pouring out close to 8:00PM. (Also, a few TMS babies went by, including the one nicknamed "Earmuffs" and two others who walked right past me. :)

As I said Masako Club was the only one in front of me, but another club was doing demachi on the Hana no Michi itself for some reason. I guessed perhaps Tom Cult... but actually, it was Yuuhi's club! I mean, from where I was standing it looked like Yuuhi who came out, and some minutes later I saw ladies walking by with Yuuhi bags.

Mii-chan and Chii-chan came out at the same time, and then Dai-chan and Kacha ♥ Masako also eventually left, and I thought perhaps I saw Sumika. (I mean I could name everyone, but like I said, it was pretty much all of Soragumi.)

Just after 8:00PM, I got a call from Harada-san saying Alice-chan would be leaving the opposite way she normally goes, so I would have to run and wait by the Sky Stage TVs when she came out.

Then at 8:05PM Alice-chan and Kuu-chan exited the building together, and I did the run. Kuu-chan went on ahead as Alice-chan slowed to walk with me. We otsukare'd each other and I asked how rehearsals had been. She said there were MORE auditions @____@ and a read-through of the script. I was like, "more? So you still don't know about roles yet?" And she was like "oh, have they not gone up on the official site yet?" Thinking of her lack of a role I said no, but she said "10-odd people have had roles announced" although "the three main characters are the focus anyway" so there wouldn't be much else. (I'm afraid Alice-chan must have been referring to the seven roles that have already been announced, despite my hope at first when she said 10何人.) She complained er, stated bluntly that there was very little for musumeyaku, although some other otokoyaku would have things to do. (I can never properly describe it, but I love my girl's frank honesty. ^___^;;;)

We walked until we were near the flower shop and she was like "I guess this is a good place to stop" so we did. I gave her my postcard... and then pulled out the QR bag and said "良かったら, this is the Aida program..." And she was like "Eh? But--" and I started to say I'd bought two and at the same time she started to say "頂いた--" and I was afraid she'd already received one. But then she said again, "頂いたら..." As in, "if I took yours..." so I repeated that I'd gotten two, and she said she was really happy, すごい嬉しい ♥ ♥ ♥

And then I told her I'd probably see her again on Sunday and we otsukare'd again. ^______^

After she'd walked several feet, she jogged a little to make it before the light changed, crossing the street to meet with Kuu-chan again ♥ I wonder where they went to dinner ;D

On the way home I was still pretty sulky about the lack of roles and Casablanca in general... but doing this write up, I feel kind of better now. :) Tomorrow they have off, and maybe we'll know more on Sunday!
Current Mood: okayokay

I like the fact that Alice-chan is so blunt as well haha! It's refreshing ^^. Glad you had a chance to ask her about the auditions! I can't believe they had MORE today...I wonder if something will come out tomorrow about roles?

I was surprised that Tomu came out early too. My club sent a "get your arse down here" message at 4.45 for a 5pm standby LOL! But then again, she DID go in this morning like over an hour and a half earlier than Alice-chan as well...maybe that has something to do with it?

Darn OT....can't make Sunday iri...but maybe de!

Yeah it's fair enough for Tomu to leave earlier when she already knows what she's doing, I guess (as far as what lines to memorize :P)

You don't actually have a proper shift for Sunday yet, right? Just on-call? Want to meet me and Gen tomorrow night after work, at least?

And she doesn't have to audition. がんばります to Alice-chan for her audition!!! &hearts . I hope she gets whatever "decent" (and even though I haven't seen Casablanca, I'm using this term loosely based on previous convos with you!) musumeyaku role there is left, after the main one.

On call shift on Sunday still. I'd love to meet up with you guys tomorrow though! Let me know where you wanna meet!

and she said she was really happy, すごい嬉しい ♥ ♥ ♥

SO CUTE!!!!!

As for what the soragumisei have been up to, I wonder if there have been multiple rounds of auditions?

Yuuhi/Sumika/Tomu/Micchan/Tomochin/etc. probably have some scenes that are just them, so maybe that's what they're working on?

Hopefully, if the musumeyaku don't have much acting to do, the director will try to give them dancing and singing scenes instead, so we'll get to hear lovely angel voices and beautiful twirling skirts. :)

Thanks for these reports, they make me fall in love with Alice all the more. *sighs happily*

You made your Angel happy!! ^___^
(And you could give it to her directly and see her reaction and all that... *tiny bit envious* ^^; )
