Tell me if it's any good, so maybe I can get it
Okay I'll try to do a little review here but I'm an engineer not a writer so don't expect anything great.
Aya seems to be completely at ease on stage no matter what she's doing. I think her acting has improved since Ribbon No Kishi. Totally excellent performance and of course........totally gorgeous.
Had to praise Aya first.
Don't know enough Japanese to tell what it was about exactly, but figuring out the good guys and bad guys was easy. The action throughout kept me..........well, fairly attentive. By that I mean that when Aya was offstage I was tempted to pause and get back to it later. Basically I didn't have much interest when just the dudes were on. I did however watch it all the way through though.
Ami Tokito also does pretty well and looks eh, really appealing for one song in particular. Which by the way, I'm glad Aya didn't do, I'd have been so jealous. The other girl that's in the group with Ami, (not Asami) has a couple of funny moments although, she doesn't look quite as comfortable on stage. But then again in her defense, it did seem that her parts were during an ad-lib (mid-act) scene.
A lot of action with the scenery - revolving floor and such, close to being to much. I didn't notice many costume changes either, but, with Aya's tight jacket I was glad of that.
A couple of times I thought .........."okay, that's gay". It passed quickly though.
I guess I expected a bit more music being that Aya was the star. Seemed like there was only a couple of quick songs. I don't mean that as a bad thing. I think it's great that she is expanding her serious acting. I just love her singing voice and was hoping to hear more.
Overall I enjoyed it, 2 thumbnails up, can't wait for the subbed version (hopefully someone will do it, fingers crossed).
A stage play is normally a dozen times better live than on video. I imagine it would have been incredible to attend.
Dang, that took an hour. I think I'll stick to my day job.
