Just downloaded the Making of By T-N. It reminded me of how much of a mew freak I used to be buy I see that things haven't changed much. Marina, Manami, and Mai have all matured alot and that's a nice thing to see. Did see too much Akiko, but Erika looks out of place. Yuu of course was hyper as ever (Did you see him in the spandex? DAMN! :D ) I only wish the attacks would be like the days of the earlier myus where they would actually spin and stuff and maybe the stage couldnt have some bubbles or tiny explosions like before? Ahh well. All the little girls they interviewed where so cute with their croocked teeth! :lol:


Anyone notice a resemblance between Mai and Mew (From PGSM) I sure as hell do. :grey:

Just double checking so I think we're talking about the same DVD; It's the one with the green cover, right? New Legend of Kaguya Island? If so I just bought this tonight after watching the Winter musical!

I was really hyped to get this dvd as they recorded the show on this dvd in the session Yoshimoon and I saw last year! :D So we're in the audience to the left side, about 6 rows back from the stage I think in the centre group of chairs... I think. I just watched the extras and couldn't see us. Maybe if we cosplay as senshi next time we'll get some screen time. 8)

I was a bit disapointed on this dvd that they edited out the title projected on the fog at the begining and replaced it with the digital title. It was a nice effect.

Good dvd, just needs a widescreen to serve the show justice.

What's that tux guy doing with himself now that he's not doing the musicals?

Just finished watching the myu, IMO it was ok. I definatly like the original myu better but this one was ok. What I really didn't like about it is that it didn't have a fast up beat song. It only had Really Kiddy Songs, and the really serious songs. With a music structure like that it can't compare to other myu's with songs like LINK, Fire, Moment Fatal, La Moon, etc. Though it was still nice to see the same story retold I would REALLY like it if they came up with new stories IF myu continues after the hiatus.

The dancing in LINK was awesome btw.

Because "Junketsu no Narcism" isn't an upbeat theme at all. :roll:

erm no. It's more epic rather than up beat. That's why in the begin I said IMO in other words my opinion. You don't have to agree but please don't challenge it.

Umm.. yeah. I think she just did.

In any case, sailor moon musicals are intented for kids (I don't care what anybody says, just look at the people sitting in the audience... CLEARLY THEY ARE CHILDREN) so I don't think it should come as a great shock that there were lots of "kiddy" songs.

And since when does seramyu have this so called "music structure"? Most of the first stage musicals don't have any storyline structure let alone newfangled music structure. :roll:

You could say that the anime was meant to be for little girls but it attracted a much more older audience. Same thing for the myus. I think I heard somewhere that during the final stages, the audience was full of adults and not kids. :?

But in some performances the audience is filled to the brim with adults--I believe it was reported somewhere for one of the senshuuraku shows there were all of two kids in the audience. It's for both really.

And since when does seramyu have this so called "music structure"?
The leitmotifs? (I think that's the correct word.)

The original KSD had a very strong leitmotif--one of the best of the myu. I.e. the opening musical phrase of that song.. 'Minna dareka ni' (I think) is repeted in other places. And then there's the 'Orleans no sei Senshi' theme of Eien. It's an upbeat almost military theme in "La fatilite seisenshi" but turns solemn in 'Neptune to Uranus no Uragiri.'

I find that the musicals are very structured--so much so that they become predictable and repetitious in parts.

I find it hard to believe that there were barely any kids in the audience and secondly, just because adults show up doesn't mean they intend the musicals for adults. Just as if loads of adults went to a teletubbies live show doesn't mean that teletubbies is for adults.

I agree with Sakuya that even though it's meant for children, it has attracted an adult audience but I seriously doubt that myu goes out of its way to get/keep adult audiences in the theatre.

That was me who reported it, and it was Final First Stage Senshuuraku, which is a completely different beast in and of itself. The audience was mostly fans of the actors, not of the show itself.
The myu fans in attendance fall into two categories: fans of the actresses/idols (adults, mostly male) and fans of the seires (children, mostly female). Naturally, there are exceptions, but TuxedoMyu is correct, this is a children's show.
The ongoing musical theme IS present in Shin Kaguya, with variations of "Junketsu no Narcism" playing throughout the show. Same with "Moment Fatal" in Black Lady, "21st Century - Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai" in Mugen, etc., etc.
In the original Kaguya, the musical theme was so strong because LINK and Minna Dareka ni Aisarete have the same melody. LINK is just faster. The same song was used in background music and then twice at the end.

I've spot checked the musical in a few places, and it looks fun! I hope to find time to watch the whole thing soon. Junketsu no Narcism has a nifty choreography. There's even a musical segment in the middle not on the CD. I want this version, with Loof singing the second part of Moon's verses. And the Curtain Call Instrumental. I'm disappointed Eternal Edition 4 did not have the curtain call versions of the latest shows like EE2 did. Alas.

Something interesting I noticed, Uranus has a new title. 疾風の戦士 shippuu no senshi, Soldier of Gales (Squalls and Hurricanes also fit the translation). Nifty.

There's no such thing as EE4. It was a wrong name given out by a retailer. The correct title of the newest CD is "Marinamoon Special Edition Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Shin Kaguya-Shima Densetsu Kaiteban Marinamoon final."

It has pictures and a listing of the SKSD-K cast, but no songs by them.

No offense but it was pretty boring. How do you guys understand it? :( I guess I like upbeat shows more. But I finally see Erika in action! I think I heard somewhere where they made fun of Americans' Japanese pronunciation. I think it was spoken by Kerun and he pronounced it "Ka-GOO-ya". :P

Anyone mind telling me where Prince of the Earth is in SKSD? I saw that there was a Prince of the Earth song in the omake segment but did I skip it? :?

I see. That's twice that the retailers have titled something EE4 when it really wasn't. Bah! Perhaps the real EE4 will come out this summer if there is no show to make up for the lack of memorial album.

Prince of the Earth was only in the omake/senshuuraku. And Believe In All was the only solo Tuxedo Kamen song performed in the musical.

Heheh. Last time I popped in the DVD I fell asleep. It's a lot more dialogue heavy than say...the Black Lady musicals which had easier to understand Japanese. I find that the old KSD and the new SKSD has a long drawn out period in the second half without much going on. Nonetheless, I still think this musical is cool beans.

Yoshiya's character speaks in foreign accented Japanese in the opening scene. They claim they're from Sumatra. :)
