GUYS IT FINALLY HER DAY!!!!! happy birthday to my best revue girl ilysm rui you have no idea you have always basically been my favorite character when i began the game ( it was yachiyo at first then quickly changed to rui) i cant even explain how much i love you have the best day with tamao <3
Nurse event's coming and there's no better time to prepare your team. The freebie for this will be Tsuruhime Yachiyo Nurse, a Cloud healer with a base and a climax healing moves.
With the trend of each free girls being a counter for the bosses, we can speculate that it will be a Moon and the high damage type.
I'd like to see what build/team other players would suggest, and try to help out those that started recently.
Mine will mainly consist of girls from the adds gacha, and I'm still working on Black Lion Claudine. Maybe I'll switch her with Tamamo Benkei if she does fall too early.

Hello everyone! This is the Revue Twitter Correspondent! As promised, we will be now doing a run down of the #2 Transition’s full story! However, as promised, we will be summarizing it below as well, for those who does not want to see spoilers. Since this is formatted as a blog post, story tenses and nouns may be weird. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask us!
‘Starlight’, the play had just ended for the 100th Seisho Festival. Seiran General Arts Institute, who had been invited to watch the play felt frustrated for how bright Seisho was during their play. Thus, with an agreement between Seiran’s teacher, Yakumo Kyoko and Souda-sensei, the Cultural Exchange Program begins. Mahiru and Nana’s past were prodded on as well as Tendou Maya’s and Isurugi Futaba’s Loyalty to the school. Seiran set to take ‘Starlight’ as their own. In the end, everyone combined their powers and show that all of them can shine on stage, as Yakumo-sensei leaves Seisho alone with her students from Seiran. Then the students of Seisho prepares for the 101st Seisho Festival, everyone aiming for the main characters, once more.
If you are curious of the detailed story, don’t forget to click read more below! SPOILERS AHEAD PLEASE BE WARNED.
[Seisho Cast in their 'Starlight' outfits]
The play starts with the ‘Starlight’ play. The exact same way it was executed in the anime but with a different song. Hikari and Karen are glad to have been able to play the Claire and Flora. As the curtain closes, the 9 Starlight cast talks about next year, it will be different. That they will be the main character this time.
99th Starlight Cast performs 3-5-7-1-0 once again and the intro ends.
[The Seiran General Arts Institute Cast: From left, Honami Hisame (Played by: Kadoyama Yoko), Yanagi Koharu (Played by: Nanaki Kanon), Minase Suzu (Played by: Tsukui Minami) and Yakumo Kyoko (Played by: Kobayashi Yuka).]
On the right side of the stage (walking alongside the audience seats), the 3 members of Seiran General Arts Institute’s Drama Club enters. Yanagi Koharu (Girl with her hair on the side, Member Color: Red), the genius from Seiran, reads the 100th Seisho Festival Pamphlet, as the two other members, Honami Hisame (Ponytailed Girl, Member Color: Yellow) and Minase Suzu (No Bangs, short hair, Member Color: Green). Suzu talks about how amazing and bright the Starlight play was and would love to play it too. Hisame tells her the truth that there is only the three of them, and they cannot do that large play. Suzu says that the truth is she’s very frustrated, instead Koharu jabs that she is being noisy, whereas Suzu apologizes. Soon their club’s teacher, Yakumo Kyoko-sensei, arrives. She asks her students if they’ve been motivated by Seisho. She tells everyone that that motivation is good because they will be doing the Cultural Exchange Program as approved by Souda-sensei. The three Seiran girls ask what do they gain from this, and Yakumo-sensei simplifies it by saying “Take great things with your own hands.”
The school day after the 100th Seisho Festival, Junna, the ever serious Class President arrives in class… only to see that nobody is there. She gets angry and frustrated at how no one is prepared for the Cultural Exchange Program. Still frustrated, she starts the roll call by herself. Junna’s new roll call includes her ‘My Own Star’ (or jibunboshi), this time. After finishing she grows sad and frustrated once more as she shouts at the empty classroom at how she has been boycotted.
Mahiru and Nana enters as Junna was in the middle of her solo monologue. Junna coughs and fixes her uniform. Mahiru talks about how great Junna-chan is for being so prepared. Nana reveals that Junna was actually very nervous she couldn’t sleep well. Junna tells her to stop saying unnecessary things and urges her to start her roll call. Nana’s new roll call is basically still the same, but she keeps her maiden heart, and will proceed to everyday, making everything Bananice~
Mahiru’s roll call is also something new to the slight extent that she is a bit more confident in herself now. Soon, Futaba enters the classroom while piggyback carrying Kaoruko who was holding her wooden sword. Futaba mentions about being hyped to show the new students her skills and starts her roll call. Like always, Kaoruko isn’t sure about what’s going on… and Mahiru teases her that maybe she’s just nervous, Nana thinks that it is a good thing. Futaba takes a tease to Kaoruko as well saying that she’s a very shy person to strangers… while Kaoruko denies such blasphemous things. She finishes her roll call on the promise of world domination.
Here enters Saijou Claudine and Tendou Maya, as Claudine sarcastically says Maya’s jump was great as always. Maya criticizes Claudine’s jump as Claudine blamed her misstep onto her. Junna tried to make the two of them calm down, but Claudine ignored Junna and continued onto her roll call. However, after Claudine finished, Tendou Maya tells her that in the end she will still be #1 and starts her roll call as well.
As Claudine continued to pester Maya on the side, Hikari arrived and Mahiru asks her where she was earlier. Hikari said she was doing self-practice. Junna tells her to do her roll call as Hikari sings her new friendly roll call to the tune of Jeanne D’Arc. By some sort of miracle, Hikari tells everyone Karen was doing self-practice with her, and Karen arrives on stage carrying her Starlight costume. Junna calls for her to do her roll call, enthusiastically Karen obliges.
Mahiru picks up the outfit Karen just brought and was wondering why she had it… that is until everyone realizes that Class B was doing maintenance on the outfit. Class B department suddenly comes running down to the stage, walking alongside the audience seats as they scold and get angry at Karen for taking the costume with her instead of returning it. Junna thanks and apologizes to Class B for always taking care of the stage and their outfits, and apologize to please forgive Karen for being like this. They all then line up and sing a Class B and Class A song, soon after they perform a Seisho Music Academy anthem.
Once Class B returns to maintenance the outfits, Mahiru brings up that soon the fight will begin again. Karen says that the fighting is over, but Claudine says that they need to up their game and take the main role for the next Starlight play. Kaoruko jabs that maybe Karen and Hikari does not understand, because they’ve already played the lead roles. Junna, Claudine, Maya, Kaoruko, Futaba starts singing a song about going ‘Over the Top’ and being able to play the lead role. After the song, Souda-sensei arrives clapping at their performance.
[The first one minute of this covers the part below this video.]
Everyone lines up on the stairs to greet Souda-sensei, who tells them that the students from Seiran has arrived. Junna greets them in a friendly way and urges all students to bow them a welcome, but Koharu ignores her and talks about their Starlight performance. Junna complains to Nana that she had been ignored, as Nana tries to comfort her by holding her hand. Suzu calls out to Mahiru, as Mahiru, surprised, greets her. Suzu was glad to see she was energetic. Koharu then greets and faces Tendou Maya. Maya says that she has heard so much about her and looked forward to this meeting and shakes Koharu’s hand, much to Junna and Karen’s surprise… as well as Claudine’s. Seeing Tendou Maya being interested in other people.
Nana also approaches Hisame and knew she would meet her once again some day. Karen was surprised that they knew each other too and shakes Hisame’s hand as she admires how pretty they are.
Soon Yakumo-sensei enters and was introduced by Souda-sensei. She is Souda-sensei’s junior during their time in Seisho together. Yakumo sensei greeted Souda as senpai, to the surprise of Seisho girls. Then she went for a monologue about how she misses and admired the Seisho uniform and atmosphere, before the mood takes a dark turn and Souda-sensei left. Yakumo-sensei then assumes to test Seisho’s radiance as they start singing a song introducing Seiran. All four of them sing at the start, but Yakumo-sensei later exits to let her three students take it away. While singing, Seisho was evidently being pushed away, overpowered as they fought against Seiran. Once the song ends, Koharu says that they didn’t feel the same radiance they saw. Suzu also energetically says that whatever she felt watching Starlight wasn’t there at all. Hisame says that they aren’t anything special at all. Koharu concludes today’s Cultural Exchange Program, saying that they may not get anything out of them from here on. Suzu excitedly bids them goodbye.
Seisho got wiped. Everyone is frustrated. Karen says that it’s so amazing that there are amazing people like them. Maya laments about how she couldn’t even do a single thing… they couldn’t do anything, and walks away. Kaoruko jokes that maybe it just isn’t their day. Futaba says that it just shows how weak they are. Everyone leaves as Junna tells that Karen and Hikari, who already played a leading role, couldn’t probably understand their feelings who has not played a heroine role.
Hikari starts singing dear my pain, as each of the 9 Starlight Cast laments about their pain. Mahiru and Nana being binded by the past, Junna whose efforts are unrivaled but not being enough, Futaba who couldn’t become stronger… as well as Karen and Hikari’s woes of not knowing what to do because they’ve already fulfilled their dream.
Karen’s phone plays the ki-ringtone. At the backdrop behind, Maya faces Yanagi Koharu as they receive a text from the Giraffe’s audition. Karen, surprised, exits the stage.
Yakumo-sensei waits around as Futaba jogs with her wooden sword. Yakumo stops her and asks her if she really is good at fighting, then she should prove it to her. Maybe she is the best, but only in Seisho, but once she’s outside in the real world, everything will be different. Futaba fights Yakumo-sensei and suffers a very painful defeat. Futaba gets frustrated at how weak she was… Yakumo monologue about how she was similar to Futaba back in the day thinking she's the strongest then tempts her saying she can witness the wider world and become even stronger in Seiran. Before Futaba could give a reply… she receives a message from the Giraffe’s audition, and runs away hurt as she carries her sword and the scene ends.
Souda-sensei arrives as she sings about the struggles of stage. She mentions that stage girls will not lose so easily, as the Giraffe’s audition begins once again. Seiran and the Chorus gets on stage and sings Show Must Go on with Souda-sensei.
[This video below shows the start of the Revue battles, as well as Tendou Maya's loss to Yanagi Koharu.]
Seisho’s 99th Starlight Cast arrives after now wearing their Revue outfits, except for Karen, who is surprised the Giraffe’s audition is starting once more. With the Cultural Exchange, Yakumo-sensei proposes a handicap to the weak Seisho students and that her school only has 3 students. They are to have a team match. 2 from Seisho versus 1 from her’s. The Giraffe agrees to this proposition and the revues begin once more.
[Team Battle Round 1] Minase Suzu vs Tsuyuzaki Mahiru & Kagura Hikari
Suzu with her double handed buster sword swings it around as she says she looked forward to fighting Mahiru. Hikari asks Mahiru if she was her friend, and Mahiru hesitantly says yes. Souda-sensei announces the battle’s theme.
[Revue of Summer Sky (Natsuzora)]
Mahiru looked at the revue theme in fear as Suzu starts telling her story. During their third year in middle school, Suzu had someone she really wanted to beat. Suzu was the ace of the cheerleader club and wanted to take on baton and asked Mahiru to teach her. Mahiru shouts for her to stop as she runs away and Hikari chases after her calling her name.
[Team Battle Round 2] Yanagi Koharu vs Tendou Maya & Saijou Claudine
Claudine starts it out by complaining why she must be paired with Tendou Maya. Koharu asks for the revue theme.
[Revue of Spring Thunder (Shunrai)]
Maya rejoices as the Spring Thunder is perfect for her and Koharu and says that she has looked forward to this moment and Koharu says the same. They cross swords, Maya’s rapier vs Koharu’s arm mounted sword with a shield. Claudine complains that she should be invited into this fight as well and joins. Claudine senses Maya’s hesitation and tells her to take things seriously. Maya hesitates to cut down Koharu, and Koharu finds it interesting, and leave.
[Team Battle Round 3] Honami Hisame vs Daiba Nana & Hoshimi Junna
Nana and Junna enter the scene as Nana tells Hisame that she was prepared, that she knew that eventually, they would have to fight each other. Hisame is happy of her preparation. Souda-sensei announces the theme of the revue.
[Revue of First Snow (Hatsuyuki)]
Nana was surprised by the theme. She took a few steps back as she looked at Hisame with a pained expression. Junna asks Nana what their relationship is, Nana says they were in the same Drama club but Hisame denies it immediately and says that she was a member of the Chorus Club. Junna says that their past does not concern her and she just wanted to battle properly, however she notices Nana isn’t being herself and is spacing out. Hisame teases Nana as she mentions about Nana’s experience standing on stage alone. Nana says that she invited Hisame to the Drama club despite knowing she was in the Chorus club... However Hisame refused Nana’s invitation, and Nana says that she does not hold a grudge against her about it. Nana says half way that she didn’t think she betrayed her! That it was her fault the Hisame’s Chorus Club didn’t go well… That until now she waits for Hisame to stand on stage together with her. Junna grabs Nana’s hand and asks her to snap out of it, and tries her best to protect Nana from Hisame and the Chorus, without saying anything else, they exit the stage.
Koharu, Maya and Claudine enter once more as they fight. Claudine says Maya better not pull her down for this battle. Maya repeats the line in sarcasm, and proceeds to lose the battle against Koharu. In silence, Maya picks up her cloak and her sword, and exits the stage. Koharu bows at Claudine and thanks her as they leave. Claudine begins a monologue that Tendou Maya won’t lose here. That she won’t lose this way!
Mahiru & Hikari reappears against Suzu. Suzu asks Mahiru why does she fight, what does she fight for? Mahiru hesitates as Hikari tells her that their futures are tied together, and that they are here to become the a star. Mahiru cheers up and remembers that she wants to become the a star and make everyone smile.
Yakumo-sensei and Souda-sensei oversees the battle as Yakumo-sensei praises Kagura Hikari, as expected. Souda-sensei tells Yakumo-sensei that it isn’t easy to defeat her stage girls.
Suzu points her sword at Mahiru, and asks her “What about my dream!?” tells once more that during the competition she really had a rival she wanted to beat… so she asked Mahiru to help her out… but then, as she tossed the baton, she looked up to the midnoon sun, and then everything went black. She lost consciousness… She feigns falling forward as Mahiru drops her mace and catches her, then she continues that during then, wasn’t able to participate anymore. She wanted so much to stand on the same stage as Mahiru… but then, Mahiru let that dream be taken from her… Suzu lifts her sword and says that it doesn’t matter what form it would take… she takes Mahiru’s cloak and drops it to the floor. She’d take any form if it meant being able to stand on stage with Mahiru.
Yakumo-sensei rejoices as the two of her students won their battles. She cheers on Hisame.
Nana and Junna appears once more as Nana tells Hisame that she doesn’t think of her as a traitor… That she’s sorry that the things didn’t do well with the chorus club… Junna aims her arrow towards Hisame and hesitates as she looked at Nana. She shoots the arrow on the wall and lets it bounce around as she tells Nana that, “If the world is colorless, then just put color on it!”. Junna’s words snaps out Nana from her misery and agrees. Hisame struggles to dodge Junna’s arrows as she drops her warpick and Nana cuts her cloak down. Hisame picks up her cloak and weapon as she worries about losing… but Nana tells her that she didn’t cut her down to lose. She cut her down for a brighter, much colorful future! Nana extends her hand and tells her that they will make a colorful stage together. Junna tells Nana that she should invite her to star in that play should Nana make one, and Nana tells her of course. Hisame looks at Nana’s hand as the battle ends.
Yakumo-sensei is quite disappointed that Daiba Nana’s past couldn’t defeat her. However, the battles does not end here. Souda-sensei says that the next one is something Yakumo-sensei looked forward to…
[Team Battle Round 4] Isurugi Futaba vs Hanayagi Kaoruko
Kaoruko exclaims why this battle has ended like this!? Why are they fighting again!? Futaba says that she’s here to become stronger, so she must overcome her.
[Revue of Heat Haze (Kagerou)]
Karen appears, still in her uniform, and protests that their comrades fighting each other is wrong! Yakumo-sensei tells her that someone who thought of them as comrades is now betraying them, because Futaba is now under Seiran. Karen says that Futaba won’t do this and that there is definitely a good reason for this.
As Futaba and Kaoruko battled, Kaoruko tells Futaba that she will not forgive such treachery and shouts “FUTABA!” instead of “Futaba-han.”
Souda-sensei announced the next rounds of battle.
[Team Battle Round 5] Hikari, Junna, Nana vs Suzu, Hisame, Mahiru
Suzu exclaims that she’s happy just to be able to stand on the same stage as Mahiru.
[Team Battle Round 6] Karen, Claudine vs Koharu, Maya
Maya exclaims that at least, the two strongest are now on the same side. Frustrated, Claudine asks if this was her aim after all this time, and Maya aggressively tells her “I wonder?”
Souda-sensei then tells Karen, that in choosing a play, and in playing in a play, what does matter? Is it the feelings in her heart? Or the feelings of those who watch the play for them? It is what the Giraffe desires. As the new revue begins as if a battle royale.
[Start at 1:25 for Gunjou.]
[Revue of Ultramarine (Gunjou)]
Everyone battles on stage. Junna and Nana sings to Mahiru saying that, the bond she shares with Suzu is okay, that it’s okay to accept it, that everything will be fine. Claudine sings to Maya that betrayal is unforgivable, as Kaoruko sings to Futaba that when did she become someone she didn’t understand…
After Gunjou ends, Yakumo-sensei says that her students has proved their worth, and that she already has Mahiru and Maya… so why won’t Hikari and Karen join her as well? Koharu asks why did it have to be like that? Hisame says that Hikari and Karen are the mains for Seisho’s Starlight, that is not right. Yakumo-sensei reminds them once again, the words she said. To “Take what is great.” and thus from the start, the point of the whole Cultural Exchange Program, was for Yakumo-sensei to obtain and convince Hikari and Karen to go to Seiran. That the three students have no chance at playing Starlight, or the lead of Starlight. Yakumo-sensei says that it’s because the three of them are too careful around each other, that they’re afraid to step on someone else, that someone might get left behind and so, she has to do something to make Seiran more powerful.
Karen says that using other people is ‘Non Non Dayo’, and says that all of these are wrong. Karen gets reborn, using the animation sequence of her transformation, and goes back into the stage in her revue outfit. Yakumo-sensei is happy that finally, she has shown the radiance she has longed to see. Koharu then realizes that if they could just beat Karen, then everything will be better. Karen faces Yakumo-sensei and tells her that, everyone is in the middle of reaching for their dreams. That a stage girl is doing what she can, to reach her dreams, and that controlling other people, and stepping on other people to do that is not right. That they are all stage girls, and that they have their own radiance that they can show, and prove, that they can shine on their own.
Souda-sensei then reminds Yakumo-sensei of something that they had to overcome before. The Black Chorus. Everyone then starts to use each other’s powers and battle the Black Chorus. If the Black Chorus defeats you, you lose all your radiance.
Futaba apologizes to Kaoruko and promises that she’ll be stronger… but Kaoruko tells her that, they can become strong together. They defeat some Black Chorus and then Futaba says that she finally remembered the reason why she wanted to become stronger. Kaoruko tells her that they’re still on their way to conquer the world together.
Maya, Claudine, and Koharu fight the Black Chorus as Claudine is still angry at Maya for betraying. Koharu then reveals that it was as planned because Maya wanted to test how much Claudine has improved and she cannot do that if they were on the same side, and now they are invincible. Claudine, surprised, “Is that so? Mechante va!” and happy, while Maya gets angry and embarrassed. “Yanagi Koharu, I will never forgive you!” She slashes and defeats every single Black Chorus, and stands on the top of the stairs. “This is Tendou Maya.”
The three exit as Mahiru and Suzu fights together. Mahiru calls to Suzu, and Suzu tells her that she can go back to Seisho. Mahiru hesitates, but Nana tells her that keeping your bond with your pasts is a good thing, and Suzu says that even if it was just for a short moment, she’s glad she was able to stand on the same stage as Mahiru.
Soon Mahiru and Suzu leaves as Nana and Hisame enters battle. Hisame says that, the reason she didn’t go to the play was not because Nana invited her or that it was a bad thing, but it was because she thought that she’d hinder Nana’s play. Hisame gets hit and falls to the floor, Nana protects her as she tells her, that Hisame couldn’t have ruined it for her, because her voice has saved her so many times in the past. Hisame tells Nana that she regretted it, that she may have viewed her as a traitor, but Nana affirms once more that she didn’t think that. They get cornered by the Black Chorus and Karen appears to save them. Nana smiles as she’s happy to see Karen. Hisame says that Nana has made great comrades. Karen tells her that, Hisame-chan is a comrade too!
Yakumo-sensei who feels the heat of the battle, also asks to join as she fights against the stage girls as well. They battle for a long time, as everyone else joins as well. Hikari and Junna are back to back as Junna tells Hikari. “I’ve discovered something.” “What is it?” “The fact that I really love Seisho.” Hikari then return it as well. “I’ve discovered something lately too.” “What is it?” “The fact that I really love Seisho!” as they battled side by side together. Everyone else joins them on stage and, later Junna shoots an arrow to the sky and puts down the Black Chorus with a rain of arrows, who just stands up once again.
Yakumo-sensei tells them that she knew that they couldn’t be easily defeated… but she experiences a change of heart. She says that… the current Seisho students weren’t like her in the past. That this time… maybe they can prove theirselves. Yakumo-sensei then says that as Seisho’s 76th Class Member, she’d like to test everyone’s radiance!
The battle continues as 99 Illusion starts playing with Yakumo-sensei and Black Chorus vs Seiran and Seisho combined.
Soon Seiran/Seisho defeats the Black Chorus and Yakumo-sensei, and they congratulate them for proving their radiance. Seiran thanks Seisho for the lessons they’ve learned during the Cultural Exchange Program, and that it was very fun.
Suzu says that she was happy to be able to stand on stage with Mahiru, even if it was just once. Maya shakes Koharu’s hand for the last time and returns to Claudine’s side.
Hisame says that she looks forward to meet each other once again in the future. Kaoruko then drags Futaba by the hem of her revue outfit and throws her towards Seiran. “If you don’t have enough people we will lend you Futaba-han for studies.” Futaba goes back to Kaoruko’s side and apologizes endlessly for making her angry.
Hikari then steps forward to say that she aims to be the main actress next year for Starlight as well, and Junna asks her if it really was the right time to say that. Maya mentioned that she would even let them stand on the position zero while Koharu mentions that they will also do Starlight with her as the main character.
Seiran then bows them thank you, as Junna leads, not ignored this time, and thanks them as well.
Yakumo-sensei and Souda-sensei haves a moment, as Souda-sensei praises Yakumo-sensei. “You’ve grown quite splendid.” She asks what if Seiran had won the revue? Souda-sensei tells her that, if Seiran were to win is a real possibility, because if the end was fixed, then otherwise it wouldn’t be a real stage play. Yakumo smiles with the words she received and bids goodbye as she left.
Kaoruko sneaks to leave school because she was tired… but Junna catches her and tells her that she understands she’s tired, but classes need to start soon, because the preparations for 101st Seisho Festival should begin again. Everyone talks about how important the next one is for their growth, and that Hikari says that just because she played the main character once, she’s not satisfied. She wants to be the main again next year. Claudine tells her she won’t give her a handicap, and that’s just how Hikari wants it. Maya isn’t gonna hear the end of it from Claudine, while Kaoruko and Futaba reconciles. Junna tells everyone something that are of her own words as Nana smiled at her. Thus, is the start of the new days for Seisho Music Academy as they prepare for the next stage.

This was a release event for Revue Starlight’s Kukugumi second single; ‘Starlight Theater’. The application could be done with the codes that came with the CD if you did a fully paid reservation before the launch.
There were three events the same day, midday, afternoon and night and depending on which store you bought the CD you would get into the lottery for a different time slot. I attended to the second and third events.
The event itself was composed of two parts, first a talk show where the girls would speak about the single and their opinions on it as well as playing games to get more “Kirameki points”.
The second part consisted on a mini-live where they would sing a special arrangement made for the single so it could be sang and danced with only the four of them.
Upon entering the event (in order according to the number in the mails they sent to the winners) we would not only get our mail checked but also we had to show an ID with our name and face picture so they could tick us off the list of invited people.
Inside there was a small hallway where they had prepared the Revival Play goods so anyone could buy them before entering the hall where the event would take place. I saw many people buying stuff, I also bought a second blade so I could have both Ayasa and Teru’s colors at the same time.
The talk show begun with the girls introducing themselves and talking about the single.
They all agreed that the ‘Circle of the Revue’ is the most difficult song yet (along with Star Divine). This appears to be because of the fact that the choreography especially hard, they have to do a lot of moving around the stage. Ayasa also mentioned she feels it’s quite a sexy song (they have some hand movements over their legs which are indeed quite sexy). She also said that she would like everyone to focus on that in their performance because every girl does it differently and their own character’s personality shows.
Then they talked about ‘Kirameki no Ari ka’. They said it is their cutest song, and Teru added that she thought Futaba would have a hard time performing it, since she isn’t used to acting like that so she would try to be as cute as she could.
After that they talked about the main song in the single, ‘Starlight Theater’ and said that the part in which they sing “Kira kira, kira kira” every girl also sings it differently. Claudine sings it in a way it shows her French accent, Futaba pretty much shouts it, Hikari sings it quietly, etc.
Then they entered the game part of the event.
Koyama proceeded to explain that by doing so they could collect ‘Kirameki points’. It is something that they started doing in their last youtube stream which consists in playing games to get (eventually) 99 points and ‘somewhere, sometime, something good could happen’.
According to Satohina the producers told her they would take them to a yakiniku but they never did, so then the reward for getting points could be yakiniku for everyone.
In the third event time slot, while Momoyo was explaining about the points Ayasa was jumping around in her chair (when everyone noticed she tried to explain that she was too short to reach the floor with her feet, which was very noticeable, and that she just wanted to move to a more comfortable position).
- Guessing the Answer
The first game was one in which there would be a participant who would answer a question, write it down onto a notepad and then the other 3 would ask 9 questions to try and guess the answer.
After that they would also write their answers down and in the end they would all show the answer at the same time. Even if only one of the girls got it right they would all get a point.
During the second event the participant was Teru and she was asked about her favourite school event. They were all puzzled because when she answered their questions she said it was an activity done inside, in the middle of winter, and that they didn’t necessarily moved all their bodies but only the upper part. In the end only Ayasa and Mimorin got it right (even though Ayasa had guessed ‘Salad Chicken’ first as a joke to tease Teru). The correct answer was a game called ‘Hyaku-nin Isshu’ that is very popular in Japan, Teru’s school did it as a schoolwide event during elementary.
In the third event Ayasa was the one who would be answering. The question was “Which of the girls in the cast has the biggest gap between her real personality and her character?”.
While Ayasa thought about her answer Teru asked if they were allowed to ask Ayasa “Is it me?” to get a direct answer. Momoyo said that it would be a problem if the answer was said right away since the rules say they’d still have to ask 9 questions in total so they wouldn’t know what to talk ask after that. Mimorin said that they have to make it interesting so they probably shouldn’t ask boring questions.
Then the game begun and the first question from Momoyo was if the person was tall, Ayasa said “I don’t know”. Everyone laughed and Ayasa explained that she actually didn’t really know since everyone was taller than her so she couldn’t judge who was taller and shorter between the rest of them. The same happened when they asked if the person in question was from Osaka, Ayasa said she didn’t know either, but that she looked like she might be.
After many unsuccessful questions they managed to discard the rest of the girls and all three answered Maho-nee (Tomita Maho) which was the right answer.
Ayasa said she did feel she was the girl with the biggest gap in character since she is a very fun and easy going girl who loves talking as though she’s in a musical which is quite different from Maya-sama. They also got a point in that round.
- Keeping a Conversation
The next game was one in which a pair of the girls were chosen and they had to manage a conversation as naturally as possible while the girl behind them would write different commands they had to carry out while talking. During the afternoon event the chosen ones were Mimorin and Ayasa. While Teru would give the commands to Ayasa and Momoyo to Mimorin.
It started pretty normal with Momoyo making Mimorin use –nyan at the end of every word, then Teru made Ayasa talk like a samurai. After that they made them say what they liked best about each other’s characters, but then Teru went out of her way to enjoy her power and make Ayasa say she liked her. She began with “Say something you like about Teru” to which Ayasa answered “her arms” to avoid the question, but Teru pushed on making her say she loved her and to confess which ended with Ayasa pretty much shouting confessions while trying to act cute which was another order, meanwhile Momoyo gave Mimorin slightly simpler orders. In the end they did manage to finish the conversation and got a point.
During the night event it was Ayasa and Teru that had to talk while Mimorin and Momoyo gave them orders. They switched seats to be in front of one another in the middle of the stage. Ayasa was a bit uncomfortable since she didn’t reach the floor and was swinging her legs in the chair, Teru pointed it out and laughed to which Ayasa responded by using her legs to straggle Teru’s legs as hard as she could.
The game started and they received funny orders, such as Teru who had to talk while saying –rin at the end of her sentences and Ayasa was also ordered to talk weird. Then Teru was asked what she liked most about Ayasa so she answered “I like how she always eats and it looks like she’s enjoying it” and Ayasa got mad at her because she always answered the same thing, and said that if she didn’t think anymore of her than someone that eats.
Teru kept saying she thought she was cute and was then ordered to talk faster (which actually meant she had to do a tongue twister but she misunderstood what Momoyo had written).
So she started talking about Ayasa very fast, then Mimorin wrote a tongue twister that Ayasa misinterpreted as a command to cough her lungs out so she threw herself to the floor and started coughing pretty hard while Teru went to her side to “help” her while still talking fast about what she liked from Ayasa.
They failed to keep a conversation and ended up not getting the point.
- Making a Stage play
The last game consisted in doing the same as they did during their last niconama, they would be given a theme and then a mission to complete. They had to do a small improv play and it would only end once they had all completed their missions.
The afternoon’s event theme was ‘New School Year’. Their missions were quite varied so Momoyo had to do a wordplay while being excited, Mimorin had to say “Even if we have to fight, I still…” and Teru had to say “Our meeting was destiny!”.
Before starting the game they imitated the giraffe in their deepest voices and everyone laughed.
They did a small play in which Ayasa and Mimorin were childhood friends and old students while Momoyo and Teru were transfer students. Their school had a unique activity that everyone did together (and it was Thumb wrestling).
In order to enter the school team (of which Ayasa was the president) Teru fought Momoyo and won in an instant. Then she fought against Mimorin and won again, here Mimorin and Teru managed to say the lines for their respective missions. Then Ayasa got mad Teru had hurt Mimorin, and said she loved her, after that she also managed to say her line too. Teru countered it saying she had also fallen in love with Mimorin and Momoyo said the same too, got excited and tried to finish her mission by saying a wordplay but couldn’t manage to think of one.
She asked the other ‘senpai’ if they had a favourite wordplay and everyone said one while she tried coming up with one herself. That didn’t work, and then they all tried going through some vocabulary to find a word she could make a wordplay from. In the end she managed to make a simple one and they finished. They got a point because they did manage to complete their respective missions and joked that now they only had 96 more points to go before they could win win a trip to the yakiniku.
For the night event there missions were mainly ‘saying a line’ missions in which they had to say a certain line to win. They put a play for the theme ‘Entering a new company’ and summed it up pretty quickly with the exception of Momoyo (again). She had a very easy line which was: “That’s not it!” which she also says in the play. But she tried too hard to use it and failed the first time so the other girls made up a situation where she could use it and they won a point.
After the games were over, they performed all the songs in their new single, they pointed out that this would be the first (and according to them) last time only 4 of them would sing this special arrangement of the song instead of being the 9 of them as always.
The order of the songs was first the ones they hadn’t sung before so it was ‘Circle of the Revue’ and ‘Kirameki no Ari ka’.
What they had all said at the beginning of the event was very noticeable, the choreography for ‘Circle of the Revue’ seemed quite difficult to do while singing, and Arisa actually had a small slip up during the night event, she was dancing and her microphone slipped or something the like so she couldn’t sing half of one of her lines on time.
Finally they sang ‘Starlight Theater’, which had already been done before during the Revival stage play.
During their final comments they mentioned they were surprised the audience already knew the calls and such for their new songs since this was the first time they were performing them. Then they all proceeded to give a small message and thank everyone for coming. Ayasa apologized for her mistake while performing and assured it wouldn’t happen during their Live in June.
They were changing their light blade colors to match the girl speaking but Mimorin had a hard time handling the buttons and Teru had to help her find the blue color.
Then they all remembered the audience for the last time that the application period for the Live ended on Monday and that we should all tell our friends they still had time to buy the new single and apply. With that they said their closing lines and the event ended.
The place was full for the final event but for the afternoon I think there was still a few seats open, I do hope more people can know about Revue Starlight and become fans too! I know it’s hard since the anime and the play’s BD aren’t out yet but I think that by telling others about it we can manage to get people who aren’t yet aware of the project interested in it. Be it because of the story, or just because you like the actresses and seiyuu involved in it, I think it’s something anyone can enjoy.
