Kageki Shoujo!!



Quote:
Retailer Rakuten's listing for the December issue of Shueisha's Melody magazine includes a cover image that states Kumiko Saiki's Kageki Shoujo!! manga is getting a television anime adaptation in 2021. The issue will ship on Wednesday
Synopsis

Quote:
Like the Takarazuka Revue, the young women who go to the arts academy Kouka Kageki High School play all the parts of musical theater, be they female or male. Narada Ai is a jaded former idol performing female roles—her roommate, playing male roles, is bright-eyed country girl Watanabe Sarasa. From the school to the stage to the rest of their lives, there is no challenge these young women can't face with their passion for performance.

I'll probably watch this, though feels weird to see a story behind the stage play of this after watching Rose of Versailles.

This got off to a good start. It's too bad that a significant number of people got triggered over the show calling out creepy behaviour from male fans and even having one of the female characters mention sexual harassment.

Sarasa is a real innocent dear amid a culture that supports girls trying to get a leg up over each other through unscrupulous means such as bullying and sabotage, and I look forward to seeing how her relationship with Ai develops. This looks like it'll be a standout series in the barren wasteland that is this summer season.

I'll watch it. But, after Revue Starlight and its veiled criticism of the Takarazuka Top Star system, it's gonna be interesting to see what line of thinking this series takes. With Sarasa having declared she wants to be a Top Star I'm thinking we'll get a more supportive point of view.

I liked the characters and first episode. I'm hoping for some great stage productions and some backstabbing conflict that all works out fine thanks to the power of friendship.

Good enough first episode. While I've seen a couple or so acting anime, I haven't really seen (at least to my memory) any girls-only types, so I'm not sure how common there is a focus on the Takarazuka-type actor, so I guess there is some interest there?
Not going to say I'm impressed or something, not that good. But fine enough. I'm sure the protagonist will gain true interest in acting through whatever drama awaits the audience. You know, that type of story.

I've not seen revue starlight, but I am interested in this a little. I just hope there won't be too much drama.

I feel sorry for him that when people want him for anime roles now, they only want him to do those exaggerated dragged out voices. Even popular male VAs like Koyasu get a chance to play different types of roles.

So, it is another show associates with Takarazuka Revue. This theater influenced decades of shoujo manga characters. The theater is also said to be the contribution to the Class S (genre).

The character interaction invovles an introvert and an extrovert. The extrovert has no idea that the students are potential competitors for the roles.

I don't think he is as picky as you think. Range and variety is not the only thing people are looking for.

Several years back, Wakamoto talked about people wanting him to use this voice and how he has a harder time doing other voices now. Quite a number of years back, so I don't remember details though.

I remember reading something like that as well. It sucks when someone gets type cast so hard.

episode 1:

just 7 minutes into the episode, it's not my cup of tea.
if I'm watching an all girls school type of show, I prefer the show to be all girls (and maybe one giraffe. lol) like Revue Starlight. And not have a ton of guys like this show is doing.

watched it today in dvd player. At around 8 minutes my pet cat lay down on the cord pulling the plug - I then thanked it for helping me drop the show.

easiest drop for the new season.

1/10

So far, I like the series, but I like it because of all the background reading I did for Revue Starlight. This series is a (much) more realistic, more one to one representation of what it's like for the stage girls who get into the training school for the Takarazuka Revue. They are hitting on both the grander and the challenges and biases that are imposed on these performers. Height, looks, demeanor... and the way they can make a girl a perfect fit for one type of role but exclude her from others. The show knows its subject matter very well.

Unfortunately... this series is starting off fairly subdued. Sarasa is fun and energetic. Sure, Ai is starting dejected but she has room to grow. That said,... outside a couple of scenes, I'm not sure there's enough spectacle to hold an audience that doesn't already know the highs and lows of the Takarazuka Revue training schools. The show doesn't necessarily need Revue Starlight's magical girl theatrical stage battle duets, but if I didn't already know what I was looking at, the few bright and shining scenes of the actresses all dressed up on stage would be almost completely lost on me. The show needs to make a better case for its own existence.

The scene near the end with the spotlight was good. It says to me that maybe it does understand the glamor of the stage and that it's just taking its time getting there. There's no way I'm giving up on this show, but I also want it to be truly great and compelling on its own. And I don't think it's there yet...

You know what this title reminds me of? Dear Brother/Oniisama e. There's a lot of similarities but this title feels like the sanitised version. So it was an easy drop.
