Haikyuu!! Winners and Losers Review

Last night, I was lucky enough to get the chance to see “Haikyuu!!: Winners and Loser” on opening night. I’ve never seen Haikyuu!! anywhere besides the AIIA theater, and scored a cheap standing-room ticket to this one at the last minute. The view from the second balcony was spectacular, and gave me the chance to…

Ikemen Musical – Midnight Cinderella A Review

Midnight Cinderella is an otome dating game by Cybird. While originally a Japanese only game, it is now also available in English. Though the Japanese one has more stories available and other features that the English one does not have yet. The premise of the game, and the musical is simple. In the kingdom of…

Yowamushi Pedal ~Hakone Gakuen New Generation, Start Up!~ Review

As with all Yowamushi Pedal stage plays, we’re excited to see what they have in store. As this was one of their ‘in-between’ shows–i.e. not focusing directly on the races of the inter-high–we were curious to see which aspects of the manga storyline that they would cover, and see which characters they truly focused upon….

Inferno Stage Play: A Review

Theater: The show was held at the G-Rosso which is in the Tokyo Dome City area between the Tokyo Dome and TDC Hall where Tenimyu calls home. If you can get to TDC you’ll easily be able to find the G-Rosso. It doesn’t have a dedicated lobby as it’s used as a lobby to several…

Dangan Ronpa Stage 2016: A Review

The Touken Ranbu Musical ~The Story of Atsukashiyama~ Review

While we attended the first Touken Ranbu Musical ~Trial Performance~ in November of 2015, we were still just as excited to be able to attend the rerun in Kyoto. We expected a few changes, some improvements, and a whole lot more merc–and we weren’t disappointed! The show wowed us in a number of ways, and…

Kuroko no Basuke: The Encounter Review

This past Saturday, I had the privilege to attend the Kuroko no Basuke stage play in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine Theater. Kuroko no Basuke: The Encounter was certainly a wild ride! This is probably the most faithful manga to stage adaptation I’ve seen, with almost nothing changed from the first 50-ish chapters (or the first 75% of…
