Live Performances

So I wrote a letter to Takarazuka... and they replied! (I've included a translation)

So I wrote a letter to Takarazuka (in crude, caveman-like Japanese) and they replied back very kindly.

Basically I asked them to come perform in Singapore and to please include English subs for all their DVDs.

I've attached the message in JP and my translation. If you read it in JP, it's like the most politically correct, painfully polite reply. But then again, all formal JP letters have to be written this polite. I've censored out my name, just cuz.

Yup, I don't think they'll be adding any English subs anytime soon, but at least I hope I've planted that seed in their head. Or they can always go 'stuff the foreigner' and ignore me : P My friend suspects it could be due to some licensing, copyright issues which is why they can't do english subs even if they wanted to. Hey, but at least I asked them.

Thanks for sharing. I also sent them a similar email the other day and received a very similar reply. If we continue making suggestions, they may decide to include English subtitles one day (fingers crossed!).
