Take it…take it all!!!
I truly apologise about that, if you actually believed it, but this post is about the Majisuka Gakuen Play and no, Rena/Gekikara won’t be appearing…
No, I will never be over that. Never! And so forgive me while I leave that train of thought behind because I still cant the feels even if I want to talk about how my name came to be…
Before we start, does anyone remember this tumblr post of mine? I posted that April last year and while this is not an anime, it is a new project with BLACK-san as the main character! Now the question is – Is it okay with you if I gloat? Pretty please?! Can I delude myself in thinking that that post of mine had a little bit of something to do with us getting this Stage Play with BLACK? No?
Remember my conversation about pride yesterday? Well, here is something else to be proud of. If you haven’t watched these little LINE Majisuka Play videos, do it, as a Yukirin Fan, you owe it to yourself!
Look at that Yukirin there! I believe a couple of days back she said something about looking forward to a Yukirin we have not seen before and from these little glances into the backstage of the play, I am already crying that I have to wait for the Blurays to get to watch this play!
Another bit of info to chew on, the past couple of days I am sure you have come across tidbits of Yukirin having a hard time with the practices for the play. If you have been in a play before, or have attended a play before, like, I, then your only question would be – how is she even able to do it! Just yesterday, my good friend and a great Yukirinian sillythings shared a bit of trivia that on the day of AKB Festival, Yukirin practiced until 3am (that is morning hours) and then right after, instead of going to sleep, she started practicing for the festival. She had a solo stage along with a Mayuki stage that day so north of 10 songs were practiced – a number that was given. More info was, and this is a given seeing what has been going on with the Idol groups these past days with Music Day and FNS, Yukirin won’t have time to practice again until two days before the play!!!!!
Like, how?! Do you guys have any idea how long it takes play actors to practice for a single stage?! She is the main character, meaning she will have the boatload of lines to memorise and even if she can practice a bit at home, if she has the time, she still needs to meet the other members and practice with them but as we heard, that is a very rare chance!
And all this without even thinking of the other works like Gravure and all that. A week or two ago for example, she had Young Magazine shootings! Who knows what else is on her plate!
And plays are nothing to sneeze at! You can’t ask for a retake when you mess up your lines. When a line disappears from your mind, you are gonna feel the implications of it all with thousands of eyes on you!
And yet look at that the form she is in in these backstage videos! You couldn’t even believe it that she is a moyashi girl by character, kind of like Rena. Actually she did say that people were wondering if she really hadn’t been in a fight before because of how much power she displays in her physique when practicing the action scenes!
You wouldn’t think that seeing her usually, would you! It’s like she completely transforms when she is doing a job! I remember in NMB’s Don’t Look Back single, that high kick she did someone made fun of it saying that it would take your head clean off if she kicked you! I think they were right!
Yukirin is truly a Super Idol!
The more I think of her and how much she loves the Idol world, how much she puts into everything, I find myself loving her more and more! 8 years knowing Yukirin, 7 years noticing her, 6 years worshipping her and I am still discovering more depth to my love for her!
May God bless Yukirin!
I really can’t wait for this play! I am going to watch the first Majisuka Play which I put on hold because of the very raw wounds I had suffered (yes, more than one) in preparation for this one!
Amazon Japan, here I come…
