Hello! I'm Brittany from Maryland, USA (or steerpikeangel/chevalierene online). I'm new to the forum but have been avid in the Takarazuka fandom for about 7 weeks after seeing Takarazuka Chicago in NY. My first discovery of Takarazuka was actually back in 2013 when I got into the musical Elisabeth. I found clips from the 2007 Yukigumi performance and was fascinated by the concept of an all female troupe performing the musical. But I didn't know anything about getting into the fandom and didn't look up anything other than Elisabeth until this year.
I'm still very new and still learning a lot. I had started learning Japanese back in 2008 but have been refreshing my memory over the years as I'm a giant lover of languages. And musicals. So what's not to love?
