Danshi Kenkyuusei (男子研究生): literally, "Young Male Experimental Students"

Beginning in 1946, for four years, 25 young men entered the music school. After their long years of lessons they intended to make their debut, but the other students and the fans were opposed, and so they were transferred to another acting company in 1954 without ever having appeared on stage.

A play was made modeled on these young men: "宝塚BOYS" (Takarazuka Boys). It toured Japan in 2007 and was revived in 2010.
