Hona sainara~♪Rock musical Bleach: The All and Bankai: Code 002!!  
Hona sainara~♪ Hona sainara~♪ Ashita wa kitto hallelujah~♪ Hona sainara~♪ Hona sainara~♪ Kyou wa, wasurenasainara~♪!! <--deta!! DETAA!! *dances* Okay, I am just happy because they put my favorite Bleach song into the Bankai: 002 performance! It was also way, waaaaay better than the first Bankai show! I am still bouncy from it (bouncy, and yet tired enough to drop immediately into sleep, I'm sure. LOL) But first--

In case it wasn't obvious, I just came home from the second of the two Bleach musicals running this last week. I'm really glad that they brought it back, and I'm pretty sure that they meant these performances as a "catch up with the story because we're baaaack!" Which makes sense, because there is enough story in the manga now to fuel more musicals. (yay!)

First, on Wednesday I went with friends to see Bleach: The All. It was basically a recap musical, kind of like a recap episode in an anime/tv show! The producers did a really good job stitching together the original 5 musicals of content into one compact show (about 3 hours long). There were no new songs of course, but my only gripe (other than there being no Orihime) was that they mostly picked the slow songs. So for someone whom already has seen the earlier musicals it wasn't as interesting as it could have been. But it was really well done. ^^ There was no "sayonara, this is the end" speech at all, so instead of being a "goodbye, here's something to remember us by" it was quite the opposite. Best part is, in the next episode they can't leave Orihime out, since the story all revolves around HER! *winner is Ori*

Tonight, we saw the companion to the first part, Bleach Bankai Code: 002! O.M.G. What the first musical lacked in crack and upbeat songs and complete hilarity, this one more than made up for!!

More than half of the songs were new songs, including great ones about Hitsugaya's birthday, the 3 Hueco Mundo 'bad guys' (Aizen, Gin, Tousen), the background shinigami (theoretically they're from Unohana's section, lol.. <--inside joke), the women shinigami (with Yoruichi as a special director), and on and on.. The whole musical was full of hilarious jokes, bad French (it took me FOREVER to realize that they were singing "au revoiur" or something like that.. and the french thing was repeated quite a few times, LOL. I couldn't stop laughing...)

Actually, I think that the funniest part wasn't meant to be funny-- it was Ichigo's new solo, "Where is my body?" I mean... how can you not laugh when you hear Ichigo belt out (very, very seriously), "Where is my bodyyyyy? Where is iiiiiiit? Where is it, my bodyyyyy?" But only my friends and I (most of whom cracked up) seemed to be laughing. XD;;

There was a really great updated version of Mou hitotsu no Chijou at the end which I really loved (and was so long that Hitsugaya complained about it at the end XD), and my favorite--- an updated (and AWESOME) Hallelujah Goodbye as the final encore!! *happy happy happy* When Gin stepped forward at the end of Bleach, I knew what was coming and I have to admit that I started bouncing in my seat! I thought that I was over the whole "so excited that you bounce up and down despite your best efforts to remain 'normal'", but I admit that I am gay for that song. =D =D;; I was VERYVERY happy, you couldn't have made me happier with the ending! I am definitely going to buy the soundtrack when it comes out in August!!!

The award for best actor this time really goes to Kenpachi's actor, I think. He RULED and I loved his deadpan tough-guy attitude. Of course Gin was great as always (Tuti always gives me the creeps as Gin, he's really great and spot-on!!), as was Rukia, Renji, Aizen, and well, just everyone. No disappointments here. I really, really want to catch up on the Bleach manga now, since I'd fallen behind long ago. Will do!

Well, the Big Question that the Bankai musical left me with is, "has Ichigo found his body?" Do you think that Kon ran off with it? =) (what is the emoji for laughing so hard that you're about to pee your pants?)

I'm not a Bleach fan but I do quite like Mr. Smiles~ (Ichimaru)

from the picture it looks like some really great cosplay :3 I can't imagine any anime being turned into a MUSICAL though o-o

I only have a vague idea of what 'Bleach' is (my anime interest sort of stopped at Studio Ghlibli and Cowboy Bebop, though I appreciate the art) but holy wow. A musical? That is completely beyond awesome.

I'm not a huge fan of slower songs in musicals, not without some stronger, faster, more energetic ones. If the audience leaves humming, you've done a good job. :D

ahhh how nostalgic!!!!! and kinda coincidental, since I just posted a pimp post for a tenimyu actor, so now memories of tenimyu and bleachmyu are rushing back!

Err, what did happen to Ichigo's body? XD
certifiedotaku: clap clap!certifiedotaku on March 28th, 2008 11:41 pm (UTC)
hehehe...hell yeah!~ Code:002 rules in crackness! Though I don't think Hitsugaya's song's new. They featured it in No Clouds during a flashback with Aizen (fuyu no hanabi's the title).

Hahahaa... Ichigo's "Where's my body" song did crack me up. I was just holding back from shouting "It's in my room, all chained up!~" >:D But the best part, me thinks, was when Byakuya tried singing acappella and failed miserably... XD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 29th, 2008 01:26 am (UTC)
LOL Yeah Byakuya's part was hilarious!! I completely forgot about it until now, but I was nearly ready to die from laughing so much! =D =D

Ahhh, I kinda thought that some of the songs might not be new that I thought were.. I only saw the last musical once, and I can't really remember it at all.. :/.. ^_^;

I didn't know you were there! Since you're in Tokyo, we should hang out sometime! ^^

Speaking of Gin: Check out this hilarious thread on the Island. All hail the fertility statue!

Oh wow I didn't know Bleach had a musical! o_o Sooo behind on all my fandoms ._.

D: I feel so lagged in all the musical sense. Especially tenimyu. I was totally surprised when I found out that there was an DL5 because I was still wondering if Higamyu have ended LOL. There's a 2nd Bankai live already? YAY FOR CRACK MUSICALS! :DDDDDDDDDD

I hope you don't mind that I add your journal! I've really enjoyed reading it since I discovered it. I'm moving to Japan for a study abroad on Monday and thanks to your journal, my checklist of fun things to do/see has tripled. Thanks!

Re: Hello!
I don't mind! ^__^ Actually, I'm glad that I could help you out-- I hope that you enjoy your stay! ^^

the 'where is my body?' song sounds hilarious XD and hallelujah goodbye is one of my two favourite songs from bleach (the other being bengara koushi). it's such a feel good song ^^
Vickytoldtojoinlj on March 29th, 2008 04:02 pm (UTC)
You should definitely take some time to catch up with the manga 'cause ZOMG it's getting goooooood~!
Not being a huge Bleach fan but a MAJOR Kenpachi fan, I only caught up because I heard about his recent battle. So... I kept reading, and I'm just... zadhfdogudsligdlkj in anticipation for updates. xD;;;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 29th, 2008 11:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm slowly reading through my books-- mostly because I want to see the awesomeness that is Orihime being the main character!! <3<3<3

i saw you going inside for the bankai show!!! i think o___o;

>>The whole musical was full of hilarious jokes, bad French (it took me FOREVER to realize that they were singing "au revoiur" or something like that.. and the french thing was repeated quite a few times, LOL. I couldn't stop laughing...)

i didn't even hear anything about au revoiur XDD which song was this?

>>"Where is my bodyyyyy? Where is iiiiiiit? Where is it, my bodyyyyy?"
OMG i was laughing so badly at this :P he was singing "is my body with you?" in the end tho :P
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 29th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
Oh were you in that big group of foreign girls??! I didn't have time to introduce myself but they seemed to know one of my friends..

LOL it might not have been au revoir specifically (though I do remember Ichigo saying "ciao" at another time), but they were definitely using French. I just don't remember the exact words. ^^;; Umm I think it was right before the female-shinigami song. Or right around there somewhere..

I don't remember Ichigo saying "is my body with you?" It would be funny if he had though! I want the soundtrack!
