Pretty picture of Rika ^_____________^ <3
There's also a whole video, but only for Oscarland members. :(

And more "Ai Takarazuka", now with added Kashi and Saeko:

Is it wrong to think of them as cute couple? :P

Mami doesn't seem to mind at all having a younger, female partner again. ^^

And... yet another interview with pictures:

I'm having a hard time / not time to even get the gist of it, but the pictures are big and pretty.

Featuring:

Rika & Wataru looking extremely handsome. <3

I love Rika. I love Rika in frilly, shrill-colored, low-cut dresses. But I also love that we get to see her in a dashing suit every once in a while. ^^

Probably also featuring Saeko and Kashi looking extremely handsome, because they're playing otokoyaku, too. XD

[Hoshina] Yuri, Midori, Rui and Kurara are playing musumeyaku. ^^

The 'senior' cast (Rika/Saeko/Yuri-chan/Rui) has the first day, the 'junior' cast (Wataru/Kashi/Midori/Kurara) has the last day. Some mixes in between. Kashi and Rui get to be together on stage, Saeko and Kurara, too, but Rika and Kurara don't. :(

Roles are:
Ryutan - Snow Troupe top star (Rika / Wataru)
Tacchi - Snow Troupe niban (Saeko / Kashi)
Tomo - Snow Troupe top musumeyaku (Yuri-chan / Midori)
Beni - Snow Troupe musumeyaku (Rui / Kurara)

I'm envious of all those who will get to see it and am looking forward already to extended reports. :P

Last time I checked (which was a while ago) it was still under construction.

Cinderella Musical CM is on youtube.

1. nico now has a マミリカ tag. :)

2. There is only one video with that tag. :(

2a. It's "Gypsy in Black". One of the scenes cut from Le Bolero Rouge for copyright reasons. :)

3. They have a small duet (dance) together. :D

I wanted to do that for a while: A collection of [almost] all my icons.

Took me a while to prepare and edit the code for this.
LJ actually has a size limit for posts. -____-

426 icons, 12.6 MB, some animated. (Completeness took precedence over prettiness.)

A wonderful Rika fanpage, with many, many illustrations (no photos), ochakai & iri/de reports (Japanese).

I'm floored. Completely flattened. Like a pancake under a truck.

Rika Memorial Book arrived today and... yeah, it chiseled a grin on my face the size of Texas.

I'm a little bit jealous that it seems to be a much much more comprehensive recollection of her Takarazuka career than Mami's memorial Book is of hers, but that's so minor it fades quickly as I turn the pages of Rika-shininess. This book is 180 (!!) pages of happy making. Mami's is only 110; granted, it has less text and more pictures, but Rika's has complete GRAPH and Kageki articles where Mami's only has extracts (which also means less pictures from articles). Ah, but Rika. Oh, so much Rika love I have to be careful. *eyes Jen and tones it down* *cough* Yeah. Nice. Verrrrrrrry niiiice.

A first, superficial comparision of the books makes me think they appropriately reflect each 'siennes personality. So I'm happy. And so glad I finally let myself be tempted by the title picture of Rika's book. XD

Ok, what else was in the package... more Mami doujinshi. ^^ <3 And "Eden". Yays!! And, and... Yumiko. YUMIKO!ELIOTT. FINALLY. <3 <3

The sad thing is I won't be around until Sunday night to properly marvel and appreciate. :(

Dammit, I'm so tempted to skip the trip and watch Yumiko instead. Woe, woe, woe ~~~

証言 (紫吹淳)

マミちゃんが組替えになった後にロンドン公演でご一l緒したんですけど、その時花組にいた頃のマミちゃんと印象が違ってたんですが敢えて変えたんですか?それから組替えの先輩としていろと教えて頂いて、ありがとうございました。


反論 (真琴つばさ)

私は全く変わっておりません。ずっと一緒にいると分からないけれども、離れてみて初めて違う面が見えてきたりするのと同じだと思います。りか(紫吹)は組替えをしたばかりで、まだ慣れないと思うけど、そのうち慣れると思うから頑張ってわ!


(Those who can read it are envied and the rest can go and look up one or more transguesstimations, it's not hard to get the gist of it. I typed it off a scan for just that reason. XD)


The situation:
It's 1996. Mami and Rika have been in Hanagumi together from 1986-1993. Mami was moved to Tsukigumi in 1993 but joined Hanagumi (and Rika :P) for the London performance 1994. Rika has just been moved from Hanagumi to Hoshigumi in 1996.

Didn't take them long to get back together after this. :)

kyanited: (koitengu not amused)
Eehhhhh...

The happy comes with some sad.

The good news is that last week Mami and Rika teamed up in a talk show for a senior/junior team talk battle somethingie-ish. Their opponents were two women from the Japanese Women Wrestlig Team.

The bad news is, unless I've gotten it completely wrong, that one of the wrestlers, Jaguar Yokota, kept picking on Mami... so much that the showmaster had to rein her in. :( Poor Mami. She looks... flabbergasted. *hugs and cuddles her fiercely*


In fluffier news: The Aqua5 housepage has been updated *AGAIN*. Although Weekly Aqua5 had another entry from Mizu yesterday (the entry's picture was a different one yesterday o.O) there is a new one today with lots of pictures of Holy Night With Aqua5 Takarazuka (note the "Next" button at the bottom). <3 <3 Unfortunately they're not too terribly big, but nevertheless very full of delighting squee.

*grins* I was updating Mami's post-zuka profile on the TakaWiki and the question came up if the listing by year is enough or if I should try to organize it a bit more. So I looked at Rika's post-zuka profile for ideas :P and wow, that looks neat. I thought maybe I could do that with Mami's, too... But when I looked closer I realized that it's simply not possible. [livejournal.com profile] shetan83 said Mami's dancing is energetic, but sort of all over the place. :D Looks like it's not just the dancing, it's her. XD Energetic and all over the place. :P <3 I loves her muchly.


I wasn't aware up to now that Rika played Genji. :o Wowowowow. I assume there's no commercial release or recording of that, is there? T____T (And Jen, now I understand your comment about the recent trend in roles for retired otokoyaku much better. :P)

Makoto Tsubasa, Shibuki Jun and Tachibana Sae had a Christmas dinner show in 1991 titled "Say Hello to E.T.".

XD


(If anyone happens to have the song list for that one and would share their knowledge... I'd be incredibly thankful. XD I'm guessing it's advertised in one of the Graphs from that year... ^^)



kyanited: (Default)
Watching Le Bolero Rouge one could think Mami was about to retire and they were promoting Rika... :D

Rika as the hero with long, blonde curls (Oscar-style). And Mami as Death. Sorta.

Ooohkayyy...

I may have more thoughts on this than I thought... ~~~
kyanited: (Default)
Rika was crying on Mami's last day. Like, sob, snuffle & tears crying. <3

There were tears on Dan's face, too. Mami bravely fought the tears until the end. She had to pause several times, but there were no tears. BIG BOYS DON'T CRY.

I must wonder, though, one article says there have been 100,000 fans when Mami left the theater, and then in the radio program [livejournal.com profile] babylonclo translated, they say an unprecedented 10,000 have waited for Wao...

Me thinks 100,000 is a bit much, indeed. But the streets *do* look very crowded...

Well, for all those who have missed it:

Hiromi is in a boyband. YESS! English summary here.

This opening will be on *international* TV. Right? RIGHT?

<sigh>I can barely wait for my Hiromi shinies to arrive. NOIMNOTINLOVE.


Next. Update on the Kiss incident.

Mami, Rika, Ai no Sonata, hot kissing )

While obsessively thoroughly combing YJA, I came across this. There's no way around this, is there? No? Didn't think so, either.
kyanited: (delicious)
So yes, there were these clips on youtube of a tv-show featuring dancer!ex-'sienne!RIKA

I rather enjoyed the first part (link to YT).
The music and the dancing... yumm.


Then I got to the second part... )


The road to hell  heaven insanity is paved with Zuka-ness. I'm on my way.
