  • The first live Takarazuka performance she saw was Hollywood Babylon / Southern Cross Revue.
  • Was Hankyu & Hanshin Railways' hatsumoude poster model for 2000.
  • Graduated 2nd in her class. When entering TMS, got 4th place.
  • Was Top Star of Hoshigumi for 72 months, just 2 months less than the record previously set by Wao Youka. Her senshuuraku saw over 12,000 people waiting for her exit, the most in Takarazuka history. Her last performance was broadcasted in 45 cinema theaters across Japan and Taiwan.
  • According to the Livedoor interview, Yuzuki wanted to be a dancer, and only entered Takarazuka as her second choice. She had no interest in the revue and "it took until Scarlet Pimpernel before I could be glad to be in Takarazuka."
  • Yuzuki travelled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, with the BS channel people to learn Tango from Tango experts. There she learned more about the culture, the spirit of the Argentinian people, and struggled to learn the technicalities of Tango. The documentary ends with her doing a duet with her Tango master in a Tango club where she wore an amazing red dress.
