Phoenix Wright takarazuka explains plot points through interpretive dance


[As originally posted on Japanator]

What have you created, Japan? We've talked about the Phoenix Wright takarazuka production before, and so now I present to you some footage from the production. And boy, is it something special.

The production looks pretty good, I must admit. The characters look fantastic -- especially Edgeworth -- and they seem to have the humor down. What disturbs me, though, is that at random points in the case, usually when clues are discovered or Phoenix makes a major objection, the whole stage breaks out into sudden singing and dancing. I'm sure this is fairly common for takarazuka, but it's still weird to see.

While we're only seeing about six minutes of footage from what I would guess to be a two hour play, I was a little disappointed with the music. The soundtrack to Phoenix Wright was one of my favorites in recent memory, and to see Phoenix shout "objection!" with a dramatic pause following it, there should be some sort of musical cue. But, that's just my personal preference.

So, who's ready to grab some tickets to Japan and go see this with me?
