The chubby Death Manecha - Kowada Kouhei's character - called himself Debu Re (course, he'd usually throw in a "debu" now and then in his dialogue); is he listed somewhere as Death Re? --Rosen 01:23, 7 August 2006 (MST)

Debu Re isn't called Death Re anywhere that I can see - even the program guides list that character as Debu (Chubby) Re. Anyone have the soundtrack CD? --Dallbun 01:47, 7 August 2006 (MST)
You're right - I looked at the kana too quickly when romanizing the villian names. I'm pretty sure it should be Debu Re, but this site lists it as Debu Debu Ree. For those who have acess to the musical (I've seen parts, but don't have it handy), is that correct? Michie 16:03, 7 August 2006 (MST)
As I said, the progam guides give Debu Re, and that's what he introduces himself as. Let's go with that.--Dallbun 20:16, 7 August 2006 (MST)

Don't you think the musical entries would benefit from having brief plot summaries? "A sequel to the first year", "based on the S season" or "an original story" doesn't really say anything about what happens in them. (I've always thought Seramyu has suffered in Western fandom because Hitoshi Doi didn't go watch them...) I can write summaries for the ones I've seen. --Rosen 01:23, 7 August 2006 (MST)

Absolutely let's add summaries. Interesting notes about individual characters or groups should go on the character pages, I'd imagine. --Dallbun 01:47, 7 August 2006 (MST)
  • More opinions about this? Anyway, I've flung together a quick synopsis in dire need of editing, probably rather too long for this purpose but I thought I could use it as raw material. I've put it up here, temporarily. What do you think? How detailed should these things be? (Brief and concise is probably better for the wiki's purposes - on the other hand, proper plot summaries for the musicals are quite rare on the WWW for some reason.) --Rosen 15:35, 7 August 2006 (MST)
As detailed as you like, I say! The summary you linked to looks extremely promising. dooky 15:50, 7 August 2006 (MST)

Another thing that comes to mind is saying something about original and/or modified characters -- for example, in this musical, the Death Busters consist of professor Tomoe, Kaolinite, the mimicking Death Manechas and the Death Nightmares (one daimon named Gondola also appears). Their goal is said to be domination of the galaxy, although through the usual path of Pure Hearts/Talismans/Holy Grail. A remark is made about the Earth being an easy prey for them because of the humans' destruction of the environment. Kaolinite is the leader of the Death Nightmares and her powers seem to have a different focus here (see the lyrics for the song 'Muma no Odori' for a description) - and she flies, which anime Kaolinite obviously couldn't. Things like that should go in somewhere; under the musical if not under the characters' own articles. --Rosen 01:23, 7 August 2006 (MST)

This Myu was slightly wire-happy - I'm not if we're supposed to consider the characters to be flying, or just... doing crazy stage effects. If Kaorinite can fly, so can all the senshi. --Dallbun 01:47, 7 August 2006 (MST)
Well, maybe, though Tomoe did comment upon her flying too. ^_^ ("Kaolinite! How long are you going to hover around like that?") --Rosen 02:12, 7 August 2006 (MST)
Yeah, but after the Death Busters song, Professor Tomoe also says that he wants to sing next time, too. Are we also to say that, in the musical's continuity, people *actually* burst in to song routinely? I'm... somewhat skeptical.--Dallbun 20:16, 7 August 2006 (MST)
Sheesh, what was I thinking? Kaorinite can fly in the anime, and that musical is passably anime-based (emphasis on Kaorinite & Tomoe, specialized daimons, etc.), so why shouldn't she be flying in it, too? In general, though, we should be sure to recognize when characters are "breaking the fourth wall" (which happens not terribly infrequently in the Myus).--Dallbun 21:14, 9 August 2006 (MST)
She can? Well, I still haven't figured out how to bring in notes about the characters, but I've entered the plot summary (and a bit about attacks) now. The fourth wall can be pretty thin in the myu, yes... "Come on, kiss me, no one's watching!" "What do you mean? There are lots of people looking at us!" ^_^ --Rosen 05:52, 10 August 2006 (MST)
Yeah, Kaolinite can fly in the anime (well, she mainly just hovers). Two incidents where I recall this happening are her during attack on the Sailor Senshi in episode 95, and then when she abducted Hotaru in episode 121. Anyway, thanks for the summary, it looks great. dooky 06:02, 10 August 2006 (MST)

I have no idea how to make replies to any individual comments. I feel massively wiki-incompetent.
Err, and the above comment was --Dallbun 01:47, 7 August 2006 (MST)

I took the liberty of moving them around a bit for you. --Rosen 02:12, 7 August 2006 (MST)


Hey, I was wondering why Chibiusa/Sailor Chibi Moon was played by two actresses at first? (This unsigned comment was left by Animaniac96, September 30, 2009)

Possibly because of child labor laws, or simply because they didn't want to put too much strain on a young actress? Kerochan no Miko 18:38, 30 September 2009 (MST)


Is it reaaaallly good enough quality o.O This brings me back to my suggestion for posters instead of screenshots. Cartwheelingfiesta 19:53, 31 March 2011 (MST)

If that's as good as we get then that's what we get. I've been trying to find a source with all the posters in good quality but haven't found one - the official website has the posters but some are better scans than others and honestly, some of them aren't any better than VHS screencaps would be. Kerochan no Miko 20:36, 31 March 2011 (MST)
Yes but there are several musicals for which you will never been able to find screencaps for and it would be strange to mix up screencaps with posters Cartwheelingfiesta 21:11, 31 March 2011 (MST)
Honestly I would rather no image at all than some of the images I've found of the posters. :/ Kerochan no Miko 21:21, 31 March 2011 (MST)
Is it the quality of the image? or is it the image itself? Cartwheelingfiesta 21:35, 31 March 2011 (MST)
There's also pamphlet, dvd and vhs images that you could use for others of unreasonable quality Cartwheelingfiesta
