Join Jenn, Julie, Kate, and Kitty as they translate and talk about some of the “Messages from the Stars” that the Takarazuka Revue has been posting lately: YouTube Playlist.
(Please excuse a somewhat “noisy” recording. As always, things are a bit crazy in Quarantine.)
What have been some of your favorite messages so far? Please share them in the comments!
Aaaand, we’re back with more quiz show goodness! This time we are super excited that we managed to get a lot of the crew together, so please join Anna, Carly, Elin, Jen, Kitty, and Julie and play along at home.
Apologies, there were a lot of technical difficulties, which means that although we recorded this back in April, it’s taken us this long to get it put together, so some of the questions are a bit out of date already. There are also a lot of rough bits in the podcast quality, but we’re so excited that we got everyone together, we hope you’ll enjoy it anyway.
So, bring your A-Game! Then tell us how you did in the comments below. 😀
ETA: Elin and Anna’s drinking game (.pdf). The post they got the original idea from is here.

Correction: Jen refers to a “Junko in Hoshigumi,” by which she means Ema Naoki who is now in Senka, not Hoshigumi. XD Habit….

This is an off-the-cuff recording of Lella, Kitty-chan, and their friend Jess at the Grand Theater performance of Caleb Hunt, Private Eye / Greatest Hits. Live fangirling before, during intermission, and after the performance.
Warning: Because of the way this episode was recorded, there is background noise which cannot be filtered out.
Addendum: While Kitty mentioned her concerns that there might be large copyright cuts for the DVD release of the revue, it seems no sound or footage was replaced or removed for the actual release.
