Catching up again  
Okay, I've caught up with my f-list once again and don't think anyone's mentioned this... The fact that a bunch of recently-announced shows got longer summaries? I haven't read all of them yet.

Just the Mei-chan one.


The whole summary is about Mei.

On the one hand I find this inexplicably more frustrating. On the other hand I no longer really care. Being out of Japan takes a lot of the fight out of me. People were right when they said distance helps.

On the other other hand, I'm extremely stubborn in sticking with my opinions and staying unchanged until the grave. :P

Back to the original point, wtf Mei-chan. Are they actually going to make Beni the girl. Or are they just trying to get my hopes up. Why can't I be excited about whoever the lucky musumeyaku is. Urgh.

Speaking of musumeyaku.

I talked to the kindest and most helpful person in the world this morning, aka sumire_no_hana, who graciously let me use her place as a forwarding address for mail (as well as storing a lot of my stuff >.>;;;)

Anyway she told me I had reijou from YUMEKA AMI.

Asdfkjl she didn't have time to take a picture but she said it's with the white-and-black Rock On! costume.

Ami-chan Ami-chan Ami-chaaaaannnnnnn ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ Gambatte, seriously ☆ ♥ ☆

Waaaaaaah! Omedetouuuuuu! I wanna get reijous tooooo! *pouts*

I did notice how there was just a craptonne of announcements, but I got so excited about Keichan I couldn't make my brain understand the Japanese. It took enough to just read the news stories about RomeoJuliette. xD

Awwwww, you. <3

Concerning the Mei-chan thing: no matter what, it will be awesome. Because it would be awesome to have such a big role for the musumeyaku lead, and because it wouldn't be less awesome to have Queen-of-Crack Beni play such a role.

Concerning distance: I'm happy that it helps.<3

Concerning Ami: <3333333333

I'm sorry to be stubborn about this but yes it is. Less awesome. Stealing a lead away from a proper musumeyaku is always less awesome. On principle. Plus I really, seriously cannot imagine the company making Beni be a girl when they have the chance to make her an overdramatic butler in expensive-looking tuxedos instead.

*shrugs* We'll see.

Actually, I doubt that they'll make Beni Mei-chan. But I'm still cracking up imagining it.
I am with you concerning taking the chance from a musumeyaku to get the lead role. But meanwhile, I still think Beni playing a role like that would be awesome, and that's what I am talking about. It's not that I am pro-musumeyaku-ignoring, I am definitely not, and if you know how easily I get grumpy about Mizu/Yumiko fangirling because I adore Mizu/Tonami, and in particular Tonami so much, I guess you know I do. And if I were to choose between Beni getting the male or the female lead, I would definitely choose the male lead for her.

I know you are stubborn on this, but I still love you. <3333
And it's not that I don't understand you. Musumeyaku absolutely deserve proper treatment, and whoever will get to be Mei-chan will be a lucky girl at least in terms of role size I think. :)

This is one of those times when I'm leaving a comment instead of making a post, but no one seems to have remarked on the suspicious lack of Tybalt at the R+J press conference.

Also, I think it was unfair to give Mimi the most adorable costume in the whole show and Ami the least, but at least Mimi is totally rocking that look.

Oh, and as for Mei-chan (THE POINT OF THIS POST) I totally hadn't noticed <------

But I figure in that case it'll be Haruko. I'm 90% 75% sure they wouldn't make Beni a girl, and Haruko is getting pretty popular these days.

THAT IS VERY SUSPICIOUS, COME TO THINK OF IT. Are they actually considering Mattsu? Just trying to torture us? Or is four a crowd at a press conference? (No, that can't be it, the '09 Elisabeth fiasco had way more than that.)

Also, I think it was unfair to give Mimi the most adorable costume in the whole show and Ami the least

So true ;____;

and as for Mei-chan... I totally hadn't noticed

I was wrong! They do at least mention Rihito's name <-------

I figure in that case it'll be Haruko.

You know I liked her in the band member role more than the lead in Rhapsody? The heroine was just so bland, I didn't get a great impression of her or Ririka...

(P.S., am translating Studio 54 summary now. Kiriyan is a tabloid writer/photographer who ran away from an orphanage. Dying.)

I was thinking more about Masaki's absence from upcoming Tsukigumi shows, actually. Can't have two nibante forever...

Uni time, will reply to rest in like half an hour.

Are they actually considering Mattsu? I'm leaning towards Masaki as a guest from Tsukigumi. But I'm seldom right in my predictions.

I didn't notice they'd changed!

I AM CONFUSED BY STUDIO 54. Mostly because SAITOU-SENSEI HOLLY IS A GIRL'S NAME I ASSUMED THAT WAS MARIMO. But is Mirio going to be Z-Boy? *____________________________________________*

You know I liked her in the band member role more than the lead in Rhapsody?

I think you might have mentioned it ;) Most people liked her as both though, at least in my circle.

I can't remember where, but I did see a picture of Ami wearing the same dress somewhere today! So maybe they get the same dresses but had different ones for the press conference?

Very true though... No Tybalt... I reckon we'll find put what's going on soon though, they can't leave us on tender hooks for mch longer! xD

*teases* If they change the working title, I'm making you change all the back-links, oh hasty one. ;p (Not that they ever do.....)

Yay for reijou! ♥
Julie: alice ed disguisewao_wao on September 15th, 2010 12:25 am (UTC)
Not that they eeeeever do. :P In fact, it makes the least sense in a case where the title is something already established and well-known in another medium. But sure *raises right hand* I swear to change all five back-links if they change the title. ;)

(*edits* Really I was only impatient because I translated the summary and needed somewhere to put it ^^;;)

They never change the "working titles", but they delight in tweaking the others, don't they? *sigh* I hadn't even noticed they changed the 達 kanji in "Gentleman" until the other day.....

Which all reminds me that you wanted to change the "Rhapsody" page, didn't you?

Yuzurun as Mei-chan . . . well that's a laugh all right ^^;; But I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen. But if an otokoyaku were to do Mei-chan then it'd probably be someone like Rurika or anyone on that line . . . not that I want her to, but yeah.

And it could be Otoha Minori or Kaga Ririka or Saotome Wakaba (seriously what happened to that girl?) or whatever. Or another transfer.

Oh, Ami . . . I know Hankyuu has put a L-O-T of responsibility on you, but don't let that hold you back! Ganbareeee :D

I have such a thing for Romeo & Juliet, and am pleasantly surprised how lovely and Juliette Ame looks. Ahhhh. More, please. ♥
