Kitagawa Keiko Blog Translation

そしてお待ちかね。まゆ様(蘭寿とむさん)のご卒業後初の舞台「ifi」を観に行かせて頂きました。
ダンスミュージカルということで、ダンスと歌が堪能できたのですが、
男役の時のキレのあるダンスはそのままに、女性らしさ、繊細さを体現されていて
なんて適応能力の高い方なんだろうと驚きました。
お芝居の声も佇まいも宝塚の時とは全く違って順応されていて、まゆ様の努力とプロ意識を感じました。
そして相変わらずの美しさ。
終演後に楽屋に案内頂いて、ご挨拶させていただきました。
現役の男役さんの時には考えられなかった光景!
一緒に写真を撮っていただきました。
お互いにブログを読み合っているということが発覚したので、まゆ様関連はマイルドな表現でお届けするようにします。(笑)
久しぶりに拝見したまゆ様がとても元気そうで輝いていらっしゃってとても嬉しかったです。
これからは女優同士ということで(烏滸がましいわ)いつか共演できますように…。

And the fun part. I was able to watch Mayu-sama (Ranju Tomu-san)’s first performance after her graduation, “ifi”.
Even though it was a dance musical with dance and music that I could enjoy,
I was quite surprised by her high adaptability in being able to portray the female delicacy in contrast to her time as an otokoyaku with a dance that is sharp. 
As her voice was also quite different from the Takarazuka performances that I’ve been used too, I was moved by Mayu-sama’s professionalism and effort.
And as usual, her beauty. 
I was able to greet her after the show when I was guided to the dressing room.
It was a scene that was unthinkable during her time as an otokoyaku! 
I was able to take pictures with her together.
And since it came to light that we both read each other’s blog,
I shall report a mild presentation of my connection with Mayu-sama.
*laughs*
It’s been awhile since I last saw Mayu-sama, and she was so energetic and her presence shone brilliantly that I was happy.  
I wonder if somehow we’ll be able to be female costars someday (this is my sheer arrogance in presuming)…

Oh I’m definitely hoping for a collaboration between Kitagawa-san and Tomu :-).

OH! Edo Night Show風の次郎吉 ―大江戸夜飛翔 ―

nw-wt-xndr lookie lookie !!

LOL, yeup yeup! Official banner is up! XD

She plays the role of a famous thief, Nezumi Kozo. I guess, you wouldn’t mind to get your kokoro stolen.

LOL, no not at all. Heart, money, all going towards this thief-in-the-night Robin Hood like figure. I’m not usually even interested in nihonmono :-). And I wouldn’t mind if she rejoined Tsukigumi for 1789, although I think that may be too many Koike Shuuichiro-Sensei plays in a one year time span XD. We’ll see what happens.

hold on just a second

is the Elisabeth dvd really worth 8000sthg yen

am I dreaming, drunk or something

Yeah, because Blurays are now at 10.000-ish Yen, as the “normal” DVDs before. But I guess we won’t get an extra angle and specials on normal DVDs anymore.

According to the Hankyu’s website, the Bluray will now contain the play, special angles along with rehearsal. DVDs will only have the play and rehearsal. Hence the price drop, but as a trade-off for their expense, everything will be on one disc. Bluray discs can encode more data so for them it’s one disc less they’ll have to worry about. This will only affect GT shows going forward.
