Luckily, I spent some time with kurayamihimitsu this afternoon/evening and felt very much refreshed after that. She took me to this great Thai place in Omote-Sando. Of course, Tenimyu had a little to do with it too (perhaps not as much as she thinks though...).
My favourite myu is probably Rikkai Second Service, since it was more even, but this one hit some GREAT highs. It was just a little uneven. Strangely though, I came back from this myu feeling more excited than I'd previously at a Tenimyu. Maybe it was the opening scene...? Or the Higa dance routine which, if not the number one best scene in any Tenimyu EVAH, has to be in the top three?
Once thing to mention is that Baba Tooru-kun seems to be injured. He took part in the speaking sections and a few of the more static dances, but sat out of the energetic ones.
Well, J thought he was cute. I guess he has what you'd call raw talent. He's a strong singer and I think he'll turn out well.
We loved him! He's an amazing singer and really looks the part. He looks as if he's been doing Tezuka for a while... I can't believe this is his first performance! If he has a weak point, it's his dancing.
I quite liked his body language when he and Kaidou fought the two-second match (the Higa members they were supposed to be facing didn't even appear). Otherwise, no strong impressions, really.
Seemed to get on well with Ryouma. I liked him.
A very strong voice (too strong occasionally?) and did pretty well.
Reminded me of Aiba (no bad thing, to me!). Had a nice sense of comic timing.
Ah... well... really... we didn't like him as much as we could have done. I realise that Kikumaru is a little out of sorts in this arc and this actor does Kiku-angst okay. However, he wasn't that energetic and a little flat in his singing. I think there's a part for him, but Kikumaru isn't it. I'm sorry!
I liked him very much! He seemed to have a strong chemistry with Tezuka.
