“Showing a new side of myself” Tackling the role of a Superhero | Flower Troupe - Serika Toa

The person considered to be the first to tackle the role of a superhero in Takarazuka history is Flower Troupe otokoyaku star, Serika Toa. She’s starring in My Hero in Osaka at the Umeda Arts Theatre Drama City April 2th through April 10th.

“This is a show unlike any other before. I want to receive strength from this role myself and show you a new side of Takarazuka” she said enthusiastically.

This is the story of a leading actor Noah, played by Serika. His life is rocked by scandal and he is given a fresh start playing a superhero in a special effects drama. As a masked hero, he’ll dare to be moved into action. “It feels good to unleash my special move and knock out my enemies,” she said laughing. It has lines that read like something from a manga, and ones that are a tad embarrassing. “With the magic of Takarazuka, if I can get a reaction from the audience, I'll be happy”.

This spring, Serika will be entering her 11th year in Takarazuka. “When I was an underclassmen, I was desperate to get the otokoyaku form down that my head and my body were stiff. Recently I've been able to relax onstage so I look forward to working with my partners and act with a real, raw feeling” she said.

Wow. Today was a doozy for news.

First, the biggest news. Senna Ayase was announced as the next Top Musumeyaku of Flower Troupe. This was on nobody,and I mean nobody's radar. I mean, she is a 94th, she is classmates with Tamakichi, she never had a shinko lead, and she's well out of shinko. Talk about a shocker of an announcement. There is two ways this has played out. Either Mirio actually put her foot down on something and demanded somebody she wanted to work with, or Tom asserted her influence in favoring musumeyaku who she's had leads with.
