Director Masatsuka Haruhiko joined the Takarazuka Revue in 1976 and proved his talent early on, with his debut work, “Dawn of Lombardia” (Star Troupe 1981). Since then, he has built his own individual style through mainly hardboiled productions, notably “Black Jack: A Dangerous Bet” (Flower Troupe 1994), the first time Osamu Tezuka’s masterpiece manga was made into a musical. With productions such as “The Wind of Buenos Aires” (Moon Troupe 1998), a play which portrays the complexities of the human mind while skillfully incorporating tango, or “BOXMAN” (Cosmos Troupe 2004), which scored a Kikuta Kazuo Drama Award for the Cosmos Troupe Top Combi, he keeps drawing out the wavering psyche and relationships between men and women through natural dialogue and gestures. With this upcoming play, Masatsuka returns to working with Snow Troupe at the Takarazuka Grand Theater and Tokyo Takarazuka Theater after 6 years, for the first time since the hardboiled “Roget”, which had a police detective with emotional wounds as its protagonist. We listened to Masatsuka talk enthusiastically on the cusp of directing a Snow Troupe performace after a very long while.
A realistic man that makes the most of Sagiri Seina’s sublime acting sense
Who is Caleb Hunt, the protagonist that Sagiri Seina will be playing?
As it’s also written in the title, Caleb Hunt makes a living as a “Private Eye”, which is by no means an ordinary occupation. Rather than becoming a “Private Eye” straight away, he is someone who had pursued many different things before that. But in the middle of it all, he is a very humane person, whose way of living is rooted in justice and who has a lot of dignity as a human being. I could sum it up as “a realistic man”, but after all, it’s a role performed by an otokoyaku, so I am looking to Sagiri to flesh out the “such a person could really exist out there” part of him in an otokoyaku way.
I still see myself as a footballer and want to fully focus on that. As I say, it is my dream to play for Manchester United. I think that I am capable of that; I was a starter in the World Cup winning team and the team that made the semi-finals of the Euros. But I can also see myself going to America. What I’ll do after my career, I don’t know.
im reading a disneyland cast member ama which is a thing i do when im bored and suddenly they’re asked to list celebs they’ve seen and it says “Adam Scott- DOUCHE. He’s exactly like his character in Step Brothers. He’s a dick.“ and i just… cant.. believe.. that.. to . be ….true ?
me: i’m so excited by the idea of jason todd in a dceu movie!!!!!!!!!
my brain: there is so much more bad jason todd writing in comics than good. there is a high chance that cinematic jason might be based on shitty jason writing like morrison’s or lobdell’s or daniel’s or dixon’s rather than judd winick’s or max allan collins’, as there is a chance that the handling of jason’s storyline will end up reinforcing the same shitty victim blaming that’s plagued jason since he died. you will probably also have to deal with the intense, widespread fanonisation and woobification of cinematic jason by people who refuse to see jason for the complex, sympathetic yet morally questionable, fascinating antihero he is and instead push the idea of jason being a Pure Angel Soul without agency who’s immoral actions can be waved away or cured entirely by a hug. furthermore —
I thought v was saying "why am i here" because the caption in v live vid like that
noran explained it and also another 2 translators i’ve seen, say also that he said “Why are YOU here?” …the subs have been off before during videos
….so basically Taehyung could be half asleep when he felt Jungkook next to him or he could be subconsciously reacting to him (people that sleep with someone for years,i believe they’ll know what i’m talking about) ..and since they weren’t suppose to be 2 in that small bed, he wasn’t expecting to find him there <3
..but really,Jungkook… why were you there?!♥ (¬‿¬ )
