Yuki news, slightly late  

1) How is it that I missed all of these announcements, considering how late I was up last night, and


How is it that people updated the Wiki but didn't SAY anything asdfghjl NEVER MIND.

The Musumeyaku Situation in Yukigumi continues. Mimi leads with Kimu in Kuroi Hitomi, and Ayucchi is Chigi's partner in Nijinsky.

I feel disappointed and relieved at the same time. I want Ami-chan to do well, but I also want her to not be hated.

I just don't understand why they want her to shoulder the responsibility of a Grand Theater lead, but not play the heroine in smaller shows.

I don't know anything about Kuroi Hitomi, so I have no idea what to expect for Ami-chan in the tour. As an aside, Kari-chan is also in tour.

And then my heart almost sank through my stomach when I saw that the Wiki's "retirements" page had been updated... but it wasn't what I thought.

Chiko-chan isn't appearing in either the tour or Bow. She hasn't left us yet, but she's also out half a years' worth of work. Almost all of her classmates are in one of the two performances.

It's really not good for my emotional stability to think much about this.

Well. That excitement stressed me out too much to speculate on other things.
Current Mood: blahblah

Hey, I didn't know any of that until you told me. Thanks. :D

But you know, I think casting might not have anything to do with Ami; the level of vitriol poured against, say, poor Aihara Mika and Fuzuki Miyo was astonishing and didn't stop them from being top. Rather, like you said, Mimi is obviously being treated as most senior so she had to get one. So for the other, maybe Ami and Ayucchi are just going to alternate roles? Ayuuchi got one, then Ami got this latest one at the daigekijou, so now Ayucchi gets one and Ami will get the next one. It's just a theory, but it wouldn't surprise me.

I don't think you can compare this situation to any official top musumeyaku, though. As, ahem, certain recent blog posts have reinforced, no amount of fan outcry will change official decisions like that.

This, however, is a fluid state where it makes less sense to "alternate" and more sense to cast based on suitability & talent.

And Mimi isn't senior to Ayucchi, she's just the most promoted one >.>

That's exactly what I meant to say, yes (that is: the vitriol against Mika and Fuu-chan didn't stop them from being top, so it won't hurt Ami's chances either). No fan outcry is going to get Ami knocked out, so maybe she's just not in a top role this time around because it's Ayucchi's turn to get a top role. I'll grant you it makes more sense to assign based on talent, but...well, Hankyuu doesn't always do the sensible thing.

I know Mimi isn't senior. I wrote: "Mimi is obviously being TREATED as most senior." I was agreeing with you, and pointing out that if there were two roles and Mimi is being treated as senior--or most promoted, if you like--then maybe she's guaranteed leads when Ami and Ayucchi aren't.

But again, it's just theories on my part. Who knows?
