Japanese Musicals

Postby SakuraAngel1 » Sun Apr 26, 2009 10:05 pm

I just thought this should be a whole different topic on its own, while still being on the subject of videos.

I think we should have a section on Japanese musicals, because it's part of their entertainment culture. Or at least show one good one, instead of a section.

We should have anime musicals, and Takarazuka musicals.

They're very funny to watch, and the performers are very skilled.

I want to request 2 musicals (if possible):

Sailor Moon the Musical and Cinderella the Musical (Takarazuka).

I just want to know if it's possible to show that or are there some rules against it?

BTW: Bleach the musical was funny last year! :lol:

There's a sailor moon musical!? I have not seen any Japanese musicals, so that'd be kind of interesting to see actually.

They're pretty good, actually.

I thought they were going to be stupid, but they're just...funny! :D

Cinderella the musical is the GREATEST! Not only does it have beautiful effects, it has CROSS-DRESSING with my favorite singers.

(Risa Niigaki makes a SEXY cross-dressing prince!!!!) :o

Believe it or not, there are several Sailor Moon Musicals. I would know since my sister listens to them all the time. I think two of the themes used were mystery and abandoned island. Also, there Tuxedo Mask in short shorts in one of them.

Yeah!

I wanted to make that suggestion because there were so many to choose from.

I think maybe the 2004 one, since it was the last one to be performed. :)

Ah, I'm gald to see that so many people enjoyed the playing of the bleach musical last year. I will be more than happy to try and find more musical productions so that they may be screened at Youmacon.

As a matter of fact, I will start looking for the Cinderella Musical as I think that the design in the picture that was shown looks very interesting.

*cries*

OMG!!! Really?!

Oh, that will be SOOOO awesome!

I'm mad that it's not available to the US yet, but every other country has it. Morning Musume and the women of Takarazuka are awesome!

Here's a scene from Cinderella the Musical: (the king and queen are sooo funny :lol:)

*sexy prince* (the whole play consists of girls, FYI)

The Sailor Moon musicals are wonderful. But I have to say I loved the earlier ones mostly because I love the first actress to play Sailor Moon. And her name was Anza Oyama and she has a wonderful voice.
