VERY IMPORTANT NEWS - THE NOT!GAME IS....

Just got back from the Gyakuten Saiban concert. You'll be seeing a few posts from me in the next while, reviews and such, however, I have very. VERY. Important news.

They announced the Not!Game!

Are you ready for this?

Takarazuka Revue


IT'S A PHOENIX WRIGHT MUSICAL.

If you don't know who the Takarazuka Revue are, they're pretty much the top shit of the theatre world here. They're an ALL-FEMALE group and do really big, huge, over the top musicals that are absolutely amazing. We saw the girl who will be playing Phoenix (which drew a "OHSHITIT'SPHOENIX" from the audience) and had the creator of Phoenix Wright gush over the fact she was getting GyakuMyu.

Unfortunately, due to the loud audience, the speed they were talking, my own limited Japanese, and the fact I was still in "HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER" mode, I only caught a few details:

~It's going to be run February, 2009 in Takarazuka (I think) and Tokyo.
~It's going to have a "Love-Romance" plot in there somewhere. Like all Takarazuka shows should.
~Set in America
~They're using the American names (Crowd goes LOL at the name Phoenix Wright)
~Ranju Tomu will be playing Phoenix. She's the second ranked otokoyaku in Soragumi. Which means she's good.
(Much thanks to sumire_no_hana for finding details that I had missed during my braingasm)

Hopefully, more stuff will come up as people blog about it, and who knows, this magical CD they gave me might have more info.

PS - I have a LOT of stuff I'd like to upload eventually from this show. And I'm aware that Takarazuka is not everyones up of tea. I'm just spreading the news, filling my inbox with "Wah, where's my anime do not want" really doesn't make me rush to get my stuff scanned. So... if you can't say something nice about this news, just don't comment, and wait until something comes up from the show that you'll like.
