Because you needed one more Casablanca post  
I wanted to post this separately from my initial "review".

I, um, seem to have predicted the demotion of Chii-chan?

Role-wise with the 88ths and Kacha they're all kind of even, and each character is memorable depending on where your focus is.

But Kacha, unsurprisingly, jumped far ahead in program order (right after Alice-chan, actually).

And in the finale... Instead of the traditional "theme song performed by the nibante otokoyaku" -- Tomu has little time to change, I figure -- the pepped-up version of "As Time Goes By" is sung by Mii-chan, Dai-chan and Kacha on the ginkyou.

Then rockette (I like the costumes but not the headdresses), Arabian-y otokoyaku number led by Tomu (semi-swoon), Yuuhi x musumeyaku (Alice♥♥♥♥♥), Rick Blaine Clones on the staircase (homg *__________*), pair dance (J-ko kagesolo♪), parade.

The parade order is,

Ririko etoile ♬
Kacha x Alice-chan
Dai-chan x Masako x Mii-chan


Chii-chan doesn't come singing down the center.

When it's not like they can't have 4 at once; last time it WAS all three 88ths x Masako.

I can't retract all of my promises of love to Koike-sensei, but I am going to blame this one on him. D:

I can't say I'm happy about Chii-chan... but they were going to have to transfer or demote someone. :/ Selfishly I'm glad it wasn't Masako in favour of all three 88ths, but ya know.

But... RIRIKO! *squees like a squeeing thing that is squeeful!* Eee, eee, tiny musumeyaku darling! I'm SO excited that she got this, GAAAH! <333333333 Seriously, what a completely amazing way to start the day, thank you! I've adored her voice since day one, with her Sakura solo, and can't quite believe she's actually doing so well and that Hankyu is actually paying attention to how amazingly talented she is, considering my track record, lol! *bounces and goes off to listen to her gorgeous Ririko "Songs That Make You Cry" mp3s*

Did they demote Tomu out of the parade too? ;-)

Sad about Chii-chan but I'm beginning to get used to having the "wrong" taste. :-(

Apparently in my sleep-deprived mind they did? XDD;; Oops, fixed.

The fickle workings of the Hankyuu Gods... sometimes I really don't understand. T_____T;;

I'm really not surprised. With Kacha back someone had to be bumped off. And I was long suspecting it was going to be Chii-chan since she hasn't really gotten the attention Dai or Miichan have. I was just trying to delude myself that it wasn't T_T

*sigh* Though I must admit it hurts a bit to not being able to see Casablanca now.
