About One More Hour

And Sinsei Rock Musical BLEACH will kicks off its two month run. 

I know the ticket sales is not doing that good (Two month is long and too many seats), so I just hope the miracle of Naruto Musical will happen again.  (Naruto Musical was written and directed by the same guy, and it started out with not-so-good ticket sales, but all the tickets disappeared like magic by the final performance.  Nope, I am not lying.  I saw it with my own eyes.  Too bad it does not have DVD.)

Some more useful links

I don't know why I forget NHK's English website last time.

I was walking to a grocery shop when my twitter starts buzzing with lines like "It' shaking!" and "It's lasting long!" . I thought it was just another earthquake, but soon, my friends in eastern and northern part of Japan started to talk about trains stopping, powerline dying and glass and walls cracking.

Once I get home, I yelled at dad, who was working on his garden, to turn on the TV and was just stunned. This, without any doubt, is one of the worst earthquake we had in past several decades.

Now, I list some useful information that may help non-Japanese speaking people.

OSK had appeared on a NHK programm "Ahoyanen, Sukiyanen (I am fool, and I love it!)" to cast challenge on three girls hosting Thursday's challenge section last month. The programm was only aired in Tokyo area, but now will be aired in Tokyo area as well.

The airing time is July 27th, 27:05-28:13 (July 28th, 3:05〜4:13) on NHK Sogo channel.

Anyone living in Tokyo area, this will be a good chance to have a look at OSK!

"Haru no Odori 2010" and "Minamiza 2010"

OSK is going back to Shochiku-za (April 3-April 11 ) and Minami-za (July 10-July 16) again!

For Shochiku-za, the musical will be the sequal for Sakura-hiko.

From "Sakura-hiko Hashiru!"

Too bad the OSK webshop does not handle "Haru no Odori 2009" yet.

Accidental Trekkies

Two of my friends and I were having heated discussion on how it would be cool to have a cafe ran and served by Vulcans on an Uighur restaurant. A guy sitting close to us came to our table as he leave, and passionately agreed with our idea. We said "Live long and prosper" and he returned "Qapla'".

Several week after that, we were informed that there was a guy on radio speaking about three women talking about Vulcan's cafe on an Uighur restaurant. A couple more weeks later, SF geek friend inform us that a columnist was writing about three women at an Uighur restaurant having serious talk about how its cool to be served by Vulcan waiters and waitresses at Vulcan owned cafe on SF Magazine.

Now, the guy, who happened to be one of the biggest and well known Trekkie in Japan, managed to contact us through my friend's blog, and is suggesting about having a Trekkie party at the Uighur restaurant.

Life is weird and world is small.

Takefu 2010 DVD will be released!

Yesterday, Kiryu-san announced that DVD of Takefu performance will be released.  Fans have been requesting for release of  Takefu performance on video or DVD for a long time, and this is the first year fans' request is granted.  Oh, joy.

No detail on release date and price, but OSK will start taking order at Takefu.  I expect the price will be somewhere around 6000yen. 

If you are interested in getting the DVD, contact junklover by message or email (if you know mine).
