Man, I am beat. I almost didn't want to go to the show because the jet lag is finally catching up, but this damn ticket was 8000 yen, the after-talk promised to be awesome, and I needed a bit of normalcy, so I dragged myself over to Hatsudai to Shinkokuritsu Gekijou and plopped down for what turned out to be a three hour long musical, eesh.

It was really good, though the musical numbers seemed kind of half-assed, there were too many of them, and the story was kind of hard to follow XD; Still, the costumes were nice, the guys were hot (Katobe~~ Hosogai~~ Tuti~~), and it was an interesting show. The plot revolved around these three onmyouji brothers who are ambushed by this clan who's trying to take over Japan (I forget why they were ambushed), and the youngest (and of course, the most adorable) of them is killed.

Fast forward to many years later, and of the remaining two brothers, one has gone rogue (Kazuki) and the other has joined up with the clan that killed his brother as their personal onmyouji, with the ulterior motive of using the clan to collect the 17 souls he needs to revive his little brother.

Tuti's character was named Benkei, and I swear every time he walked on all I could think of was Bengay XD oops~ His role was that of follower/friend/right-hand-man to another guy who was destined to eventually rule the country and save them from the evil clan above. Or something XD; Like I said, it was really hard to follow at times.

The whole thing ends, spoiler alert, pretty happily, with the little brother being revived, though it's a bit bittersweet, as his eldest brother (the one who joined the evil clan) sacrifices himself to be the 17th soul needed to revive him, and in return the little brother convinces his other brother to perform a spell that will split the little brother's remaining years in half to revive and share with his eldest brother. The same spell is then used to revive Mr. Destined To Lead The Country when he is killed in battle and Tuti's Benkei can't bear to live without him ;~; It was pretty slashy, really, when it came down to it XD

But tsk, that was dull compared to the after talk XD

I specifically chose this day, because of the guests: Ueshima-sensei, Tuti, Katou Kazuki, and Hosogai Kei. Aka TENIMYU ALL STARS. Which was pretty much exactly what Ueshima said when he came out, looking down the line: "...I feel like we all have something in common here..."

He then segued into clarifying that that common point was Musical Prince of Tennis. Duh :P This led him to mention offhandedly that he'd recently gone to check out the new TeniMyu performance (lol, plug much?) and had gotten to hear some familiar, nostalgic songs. He then pointedly looked at Tuti on the other end of the group, brought his mic up close, and sang, "Depend on meeeee~" XDDDD SHIT YOU NOT. And after that line he said in a huffy voice, "Eiji! Genkai na no ka?!" XDDDD *WAS DYING IN MY SEAT*

Poor Tuti, almost eight years later and you still can't escape the Golden Pair jokes :D May as well learn to enjoy them, I guess!

On a related note, though: that means both of those parts are in the new Myu! Which means there's a fuckton of Golden Pair fanservice イエーイ~!!

On a less related but still slightly related note: HOW ABOUT THOSE NEW HYOUTEI BOYS?? I'm excited, ngl. I will maintain high hopes for all of them until proven wrong! Gakuto is a pedo, Oshitari looks the part, Atobe has an "o" in his name so we can "NAME"obe that bitch AND DID I MENTION TOMORU?? I BELIEVE I DID. WAY THE FUCK BACK IN JANUARY: "idek who this Akasawa kid is BUT I WANT TO PUT HIM IN MY POCKET AND TAKE HIM HOME. He was just...god, his character was the most hilarious thing ever. An adorable mix of KY-ness and uke-tude that could shatter mountains. If he is not set to be in TeniMyu, MAKE HIM BE IN TENIMYU." WILLIKERS.

Sounds like you had a good time. And you really did get an All Star Tenimyu team.

Way to be subtle about the plug Ueshima-sensei. ^_~
