Fantasy Casts  
Alright, three people asked for my Princess Bride casting, so here goes.

What you have to understand is, 75% of my fantasy casts are based on the supposition that it's Soragumi circa 2006 - 2008, when Eriko & Alice-chan were a regular combi.

Hence.

Westley: Nanaho Hikaru
Buttercup: Hanakage Arisu
Prince Humperdinck: Sagiri Seina
Count Rugen: Harukaze Misato
Inigo Montoya: Toki Irisu
Fezzik: Yuumi Hiro
Vizzini / The Clergyman: Kazari Jin
Miracle Max: Kotobuki Tsukasa
Valerie: Mikaze Maira
King Lotharon: Misato Maya
Queen Bella: Suzuna Saya

I thought I'd also sneak Dai-chan or Kai-chan in there as Yellin, the captain of the guard, and Ten-chan as The Albino. :3

Also, since this story is severely lacking in musumeyaku parts, we could incorporate the bit in the book where Humperdink courts Princess Noreena -- it'd be a one-scene comic relief thing, and I'm imagining it with Chiari-chan or Tamami-chan. For a more substantial musumayaku role, I'm sure we could work in a sort of "Buttercup's lady-in-waiting", preferably played by Eri-chan.

(If it isn't obvious, most of my fantasy casts tend to incorporate as many Understudy members as possible ^_^;;)

In the Needs Moar 88ths version, I'd have Mii-chan as Inigo (mmmm), Dai-chan as Fezzik (LOL) and Chii-chan as Rugen (ngh). Really, the image of Mii-chan as Rugen OR Inigo makes my toes curl with potential sexiness *____* Also, Kasshii and Rena would cameo as Buttercup's parents. :)

The idea of Tall, Dark & Handsome Eriko in that sexy little mustache vs. compact and all-attitude Chigi makes me grin. Admittedly, though, Micchan's performance in Trafalgar makes Becca's suggestion of Micchan!Humperdinck completely valid. I think in that case you'd have to totally re-invent the cast starting with Tomu!Westley, though. Feel free to do that, Becca ;D

And she may disagree, but I think Tomochin has to be Fezzik. BECAUSE SHE IS THE TALLEST. And Masako doing the hot & intense swordsman thing and then playing rhyming games with Fezzik = SO MUCH WANT.

Chiya-nee, Susshii-san and Aoi-san's roles should be self-evidently awesome ;D

On the subject of fantasy casts, I did one a while back with the musical The Secret Garden. Since it's a story that centers around children, I decided to just cast it with babies and beloved upperclassmen.

Mary Lennox: Momochi Ito
Colin Craven: Amaki Tonika
Martha: Oomi Ako
Dickon: Toki Irisu
Archibald Craven: Amou Tamaki
Dr. Neville Craven: Suzu Haruki
Lily Craven: Mikaze Maira
Rose: Hanatsuyu Sumika
Ben: Kazari Jin
Mrs. Medlock: Suzuna Saya, or I'd bring back Ayazono Yuchi :)

Obviously I picked exemplary singers (except for Masako and Tomoe *cough*) But I'm sure Tomoe would do well enough on "Lily's Eyes" to complement TamaTama in a way to make me die of happy. And TamaTama x Aoi's "How Could I Ever Know?" *melts imagining it*

And J-ko and Tonica would be the cutest evar.

The end.

While yes, she has actually pulled off serious villains before, it's the...ridiculous nature of Humperdinck that makes me want to cast Micchan in this role ;)

I think in that case you'd have to totally re-invent the cast starting with Tomu!Westley, though. Feel free to do that, Becca ;D

Well, I know what I'll be doing later tonight >:)

NO, TOMOCHIN HAS TO BE COUNT RUGEN :P :P :P And while Masako isn't quite as tall, she's still a very tall sienne and is even more awkward than Tomochin. And she can play rhyming games with Eriko, her douki. C'mon, you know it would be cute!

and Chii-chan as Rugen (ngh).

YES PLEASE.

Tomochin's done enough villains! I cite Hardy and Rafael as examples of her being a big, bumbling dork who should play Fezzik ;P

Anyway, while a lot of people / situations in PB are ridiculous, I think Humperdinck is characterized as this formidable rock of ambition and heartlessness.

This is probably because I've re-read the book more recently than I've re-watched the movie.

Mii-chan or Chii-chan as Rugen, which image do you like more?

But Masako is the queen of big, bumbling dorks! ;P

Okay, confession to make: I've seen the movie many, many times, but I've never read the book -_-;; So my impression of Humperdinck being ridiculous comes from that.

Chii-chan as Rugen. I'm not even sure if I've seen Chii-chan in a villainous role before, but somehow I can imagine that better than I can imagine Mii-chan.

Which-is-why-Tomochin-should-get-a-chance, and that's the last thing I'll say about it.

Chii-chan = you should watch Trafalgar again, and watch her. She also played Masako's role in the Valencia shinko (that uniform *swoon*), and... MacArthur was ostensibly a villain?

Mii-chan = Je Chante. I shouldn't have to say anything else.

Mii-chan!Inigo makes me crazily happy. And in the end she would make an AMAZING Dread Pirate Roberts. (There'll be a Dread Pirate Inigo bit in the finale, right? ^_~)
