Um. I like books, Takarazuka, pretty ladies, tea, cross-stitching and many other things I can't quite remember right now.
Ask me anything
Oh, and dragons.
BTW, Daimon’s costume on the Lupin III poster keeps reminding me of Yuki in Seal of the Bourbons…
*random thoughts* There are usually Oscar-Berubaras and Fersen-Berubaras, if we don’t count the 2009 gaidens, but isn’t Karincho’s the only Andre-Berubara?
… somehow I keep thinking that they looked at Karincho, imagined Karincho-Oscar and decided that this kind of Oscar would not have anything left for Napoleon to do. “Andre. She’s definitely Andre”
Technically Karincho’s is “Andre to Oscar Hen”. There’s also an “Oscar to Andre Hen” version, which is the one Masao and Mirio did (and before them, Noru and Tartan), and “Fersen Hen” which was Ooura Mizuki’s performance.
But “Andre to Oscar Hen” is the oldest “focussed” version, because Anna Jun and Haruna Yuri did it in 1975, though that had the top star as Oscar. I don’t have that one, would love to compare the scene focus between that, Karincho’s, and the Oscar to Andre version…
I did not know that 1975 version was focused… Karincho’s was the oldest I watched.
(there also should be a classification of non-Fersen-hens for top musumeyaku use: (a) Noru’s version; (b) let’s use the Charlotte and Jeanne plot and give top musumeyaku something to do (Karincho’s - not sure if there are any others, but I saw like four Berubara productions all in all); (c) what top musumeyaku?)
