I'm sad to say this but this is going to be my last post here at [personal profile] hikaru_genji.

Originally, this was meant to be a fandom comeback journal for me to gush about takarazuka and review some shows, but as time goes on and with favorites retiring/will retire (Yumeka Ami and Yuumi Hiro to be honest since as everyone who knows me/doesn't know me knows that I'm not a big Ranju Tomu fan), and no other shows are actually piquing my interest to be honest, I'm considering leaving the fanbase for good.

I had good memories of it, the wonderful people I've met and making graphics from it. Also, with fandom setting sail on tumblr (in which I'm at as well and you're definitely most welcome to add me), I don't feel quite at home here as I used to be. In fact, my fandoms evolved overtime and Takarazuka to me is a thing of the past that it's no longer part of my fandom life anymore. If you see a Takarazuka reblog or a post on tumblr, it's mostly vintage/retro stuff and retired actresses whom I admire, among other things like "Elisabeth", "The Phantom of the Opera" and my new obsession "Once Upon a Time" just to name a few.

Thank you guys for all the shiny filled memories and I'm ever so happy and thankful for them. I wish you guys all the best in the future!

I haven't been talking about Zuka lately because I haven't been having the same feelings as I did back when I've first started joining back in 2006 and all my favorites being OGs now, however, I've been sneakily looking at Ouki Kaname's Soragumi career and I must say that I am impressed . Then again, I'm always impressed with everything Teru's done. Why mention Teru you ask? Because I saw this on my tumblr dash, I just had to share this cool "Gone with the Wind" poster:

For those who wants to know where I am these days, I'm located on these two sites now. Both accounts are meant for musical spammage and all and by no means my personal accounts, so here you go:

While I'm not into the newer era of Takarazuka these days, with the exception of Soragumi things including Teru's Top Star era, I do look back into the past and jot down my thoughts all while making graphics or sharing a screencap or a scan or two in reference to those bygone eras of Zuka past. I hope you'll follow me on those sites and I can't wait to meet some of you! Dunno what the future holds for this journal to be honest, but you never know. Time will tell!

I guess everyone was "Elisabeth-ed" out because of the 2012 revival with Annemieke van Dam and Mark Seibert methinks or that musical/Takarazuka fandom talking headquarters moved to Tumblr now.

Look at all my favorite Deaths together! From left to right: Haruno Sumire (2002), Ichiro Maki (1996) and Shizuki Asato (1998)

More Pictures (mainly Ichiro) )

That's all I'm going to share. Oh, did I mentioned that there will be a DVD of this? ;)

I've been Zuka-ed out since forever but I want to draw all of your attention to this. :D

Look at all my favorite OGs! :) They're going to do the Elisabeth OG ,gala concert. :)

Love, love, love! :)

I'm also happy that Teru is Top Star of Soragumi and is going to perform a musical adaptation of the Anime "Legend of the Galactic Heroes"! :D There's also a nice poster too! :)
