Has anybody seen this show yet? Feelings?

Saw yesterday in Tokyo and really enjoyed it. Great to see historical drama covered.

Neither really alhtough I saw the fans there for irimachi from S/bucks - but you are right about the wind - freezing!

I saw it a few times in Takarazuka, and caught it on Sunday in Tokyo. You were there on Saturday for shonichi? Did you catch irimachi in the morning or demachi after the show? Brr, it certainly was a windy weekend.

I've really enjoyed it too. I reread Genji Monogatari over the summer, so I think that helped my enjoyment by cutting back a bit on the confusion. I certainly enjoy it a lot more than the other recent Genji adaptions by Takarazuka — I think there's something in what the director said about the love stories in the Uji chapters being very timeless and human. They're easier to relate to in some ways, I think, than a lot of Genji's affairs. Actually, I really liked Oono's take on the story in general, especially adding in political ambitions and such.

I saw the show a ridiculous number of times in Takarazuka and will be traveling to Tokyo in about a week and a half to see it several more.

I went into it expecting not to like Yume no Ukihashi but I really enjoyed it. It's a bit difficult to understand the first (or second or more) time around, but it's absolutely beautiful no matter how you look at it. The staging was incredible and I never got bored of it, as many times as I saw it.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Apasionado!! (And not just for the scenes with otokoyaku in "drag" or because the star whom I support has a big solo). I am a big tsukigumi fan in general and I felt it really played to the troupe's strengths..... and reminded me a lot of the older tsukigumi shows that I watched as I was just starting out as a fan.

Can't wait to see it again!
