The basic premise for this special is that it was the 10th anniversary of the new Takarazuka theater. Each troupe has about 20 minutes to do a sketch outlining the high points of their shows over those ten years. They each had a base show which was the background, and then characters from other shows would stumble into this play.
First all the members came down the stairs by troupe, but because most of Sora wasn’t there they couldn’t play 「五組そろって」 Then the MC.
Star Troupe’s 10 Years
Snow Troupe’s 10 Years
Our 10 Years (Senka)
Then more serious songs to close out the first act.
Another collection of songs started the second act, easing us back into the comedy as Tom sang songs from Gone With the Wind and no fewer than six Scarlets showed up to plague him.
Flower Troupe’s 10 Years (Haruno Sumire as dr Black Jack and main heroes of “Speack easy”, “Michelangelo”, “East of Eden”, “Ludwig II” and “Yoake no Jokyoku” as his patients; finally doc transforms into der Todt)
Cosmos Now: Tani got one song to represent Cosmos
Moon Troupe’s 10 Years
My 10 Years (Todoroki Yuu)
Then the finale with a long string of songs.
Any other interesting or important stuff.
