So Chie is retiring?
Edit: it’s still hard to believe it but as suspected from the duration of her show next year, she’ll retire on May 10th… A year after my dearest Tomu, huh?
Edit2(for a random thought): I love when they say graduation instead of retirement, even if it reminds me of idols it’s a much more positive word!
Daimon and Mayo, I’ll miss this duo so much! (My Hanagumi, whyyy? T__T) </drama-queen mode>
These scenes are from Brilliant Dreams #22.
Daimon: Wouldn’t you like to try dressing some cute clothes, like “I’d like to wear a dress”?
Mayo: Kimochi warui*… *DOYA*
(*’Kimochi warui’ is hard to translate… it could go from disgusting, to something that you simply don’t like. Mayo was pretty straightforward choosing that, then she looks a little embarrassed about being so blunt to Daimon. Could be me seeing too much, and I really can’t understand what they’re saying soon after but I think it’s Mayo trying to apologize. Well, anyone wishing to complement this is welcome, I just had to share this moment. xD)
(Watched this while sending mental waves for Mayo to fix her collar……)
Subs for “A SI NA YO”, the video I used was taken from Youku. Just the subs are mine.
This is a very symbolic way to finish one’s career in Takarazuka. Tomu has said at an ochakai (the last one in Takarazuka, I think) that one of her dreams had been to do a duet dance wearing white, in the middle of smoke. Back then, the person called to her attention that she wouldn’t be able to fulfill it unless she became a top star. I confess this isn’t my favorite duet dance but I didn’t really like how the song got in Love Potion, so I was very glad they did it again. I guess the others were already perfect? lol.
(I tagged Daimon because I think it’s her singing after Tomu but correct me if I’m wrong).
Final day for Rose of Versailles, Oscar’s Angle.
I took those for my blog, but as I remembered I have a tumblr, I thought I’d share some love for Rei-chan and Chii-chan. There was so much love going on in there, it’s hard to know where to begin. Like, when they were signing “sumire no hana saku koro”, right there! the camera stabilized on Rei. I say stabilize because it was going veeeery fast before, so it had time to catch everyone graduation (so many!). It was a coincidence… probably a coincidence. Still, it got a beautiful smile of hers.
And I’m saying that because I actually wanted a good shot of Maakun’s face and didn’t get it, unfortunately. On the other hand, I got that smile she turned to Chii-chan, that scene is so full of ♥♥♥! lol
Talking about Maakun, wasn’t she the one who handed the bouquet in Takarazuka as well? Where is MiiChiiDai? I mean, Misato and Dai-chan, lol. Sorry, it’s like they’re just one thing for me (and yes, I saw that Mii-chan was backstage helping again).
Sorry for babbling… I think I have already saturated my non-takarazuka friends with this so… errr sorry! (and yes the pegasus is there because I had to show them the flying pegasus lolI should have created the gif of the wings flapping and all too :x)
Oh and I almost forgot to comment Chii-chan’s comment lol I was laughing so hard when I read the reports of her mentioning Teru’s retirement and now I saw it I keep wondering: were there so many curtain calls she had nothing else to say or was that her way of staying MiiChiiDai forever? (yes, it’s also become an adjective for me)
Now excuse me so I can cry a little more about Maakun’s oniiyan not being in Takarazuka anymore. :(

Women’s Magazine “Hearst” October Issue
On Sale 1 September 2014!
The other day, there was a photoshoot for a woman’s magazine at the studio.
Shooting together with the wonderful staff was fun and proceeded smoothly, that the photo shoot was completed an hour ahead of schedule.
From the photographers and staff:
"Tomu makes it so easy to take her photos "
"Speaking of which even probably the people in the second half the tea party are well (staff)"
Tomu, who was wearing gorgeous platinum jewelry,
Because she wants to meet everyone soon,
Only a little, but
We’ll show off a little bit of glittering nails.
