IT’S BACK

Recruitment flier for the TMS (Every year they redo it with the second year students)

Since Kitarou is retiring I must now live up to my threat of wearing this mushroom skirt to the farewell party.
Now I’m just biding my time … waiting for it to go on sale (cause $50 is a bit much for a skirt let’s be real)

Sexy French Fries Costume

How you know these stores are starting to run out of “sexy” ideas …

It’s been a long and busy day, sandwiched between two back to back night bus rides.
But, I got my tachimi ticket (I was the 4th to last ticket, whew!), got to pick up stuff I will need for Sports Day, got to meet with a good friend for the first time since the difficult event we all experienced earlier this month, enjoyed the show, and got to be proud of how much my favorite Hoshigumi -sei has  grown since I first saw her. She really is coming into her own. But no matter how cool she gets, she’ll always be that adorable ken-1 ganbarimasu-ing her way through Jose and Carmen to me. <3
Time with friends was pitifully short but I am glad we got it. I wish I lived closer so we could have more time to talk. It’s been a difficult time for us all and a few precious moments here and there to catch up, see how they are holding up, and try to lose ourselves for a few hours in the joy of Takarazuka aren’t enough but I treasure them all the same.

Takarazuka needs to get 50% less popular because the toujitsuken line up times are getting impossible.

In the past 8-8:30 was plenty early for an original show that the top wasn’t retiring with. Now 6:30 is girigiri.

Tokyo, you need a bigger theater.

Yeah we lined up at like…

Whew, just squeaked by on tachimi. Which is good, otherwise I would have had no idea what was going on during tonight’s ochakai.

You know what makes me feel old?

The fact that in 3 weeks my Livejournal is going to turn 11 years old.

ELEVEN. YEARS. OLD.

Thank god I killed my Sailor Moon website a few years back otherwise that sucker would be turning 18 this year. (it was hosted on GeoCities (then moved to Angelfire after Yahoo bought GeoCities and said they owned the intellectual copyright posted on any GeoCities page), it was decorated using Moyra’s Web Jewels, and it relied heavily on Sailor Moon webrings to bring traffic to the site (this was before Google). It was a horrific mess.

Seriously, look at this thing. This was the best we could do back in 1996.)

on takawiki it says

English Title: PUCK / CRYSTAL TAKARAZUKA -Crystal Image-
Japanese Title: PUCK / CRYSTAL TAKARAZUKA-イメージの結晶-
Romanized Title: Pakku / CRYSTAL TAKARAZUKA - Imeeji no Kesshou-

Troupe: Moon
Year: 2014
Performances: Takarazuka Grand Theater, 9/27 - 11/3; Tokyo…

It’s a simple mistake on the TakaWiki page. If you go to the official Hankyu page you can see that today (the 26th) is shonichi. (Shonichi is almost always on a Friday).

*watches all her money fly out the window*

After 15 awesome years Kitarou is going to leave with Kaname.

And I’m okay with that.

She’s had an amazing run and got some fantastic roles. They even let her try being an onnayaku last year and she’s leaving in a “villain” role (which she absolutely excels at). She got to revisit the role of Alain (which everyone absolutely loved and often commented was very much like “her”, much to her annoyance) and even got to try her hand at being Andre.

She’s been a space rebel, a dog boy, a cross dressing waitress, an evil forest god, the head of her own gigolo company, an artist tortured by the devil, a vampire hunter, Sergeant Garcia, a composer who lost his mind, a guy who got really angry about his cousin marrying some blue clothes wearing dude, a very blonde and very naughty playing card, a cop in charge of chasing down Clyde Barrow, a bad guy who got to beat Kimu to death, a really grumpy Southern “Madame”, and the gay owner of a ballet company who got to hit on Chigi, just to name a few of the fantastic things she’s done.

So I can honestly say that I have no regrets.

Keep being awesome these last couple of months Kitarou. I look forward to cheering you on until the very end!

^-^ b

(Though if the director wants to put her in a leotard and make her lead the kickline in the Phoenix revue that would certainly be the icing on my “Kitarou’s amazing 15 years” cake. Just saying, Fujii-sensei … just saying … )
