[Musical] LILIUM ~Shoujo Junketsu Kageki~

LILIUM -Lilium Shoujo Junketsu Kageki- (LILIUM -リリウム 少女純潔歌劇-; LILIUM -Lilium Girls Purity Theater-) is a 2014 musical featuring Morning Musume '14, S/mileage and Hello Pro Kenshuusei members, written and directed by Suemitsu Ken'ichi. LILIUM is the third musical of the "Shoujo Kageki" series. The musical will run from June 5 through June 21, 2014.

Synopsis:
"Lilium: There are no flowers that bloom eternally; it all withers away. A beautiful story of love and hate about girls trapped in a garden of eternity. Starring selected members of Morning Musume and the members of S/mileage as they take on the roles of immortal vampires, a gothic musical!"

In a sanatorium in the rainy forest, where vampire girls are undergoing rehabilitation, Silvatica(Oda) has gone missing. Lily(Riho) is searching for her, but no one at the sanatorium seems to remember Silvatica. Does Silvatica really exist,  or is she only a figment of Lily's imagination? As if trapped in a dream, Lily is ensnared in illusions. When the truth of the disappearance comes to light, the cruel fate of the vampire girls emerges.

First zombies, then Jeanne D'arc, and now vampires!

Tsunku, what will you think up next? XD

Our very own Estrea has been pretty much THE major source for getting info about this musical translated for the English-speaking fandom, so be sure to give her a pat on the back for her hard work as well!

Today's Lilium talkshow yielded some interesting things. A summary:

1) There will be 2 songs that can only be heard in the musical as it's not in the OST -- it was written after the OST was recorded. Suemitsu, the producer, mentioned that he wrote one of the songs because he wanted Zukki to sing more. It's a group song with Zukki, Riho, Kanyon, Meimei and Sakura.
2) Ayumi's character will have a lot of mood swings from one extreme to another. Ayumi is uncertain about whether she can pull it off, but the other members assure her it's fine.
3) The harmonies for the soundtrack is lower than what they're usually used to, so it was pretty difficult for them, but apparently the effect is really cool.
4) Limited stocks for the OST. It's recommended to buy them early. (thank god I'm going on the first day).
5) Everyone is falling head over heels for Duu (Ayacho gets teased constantly by everyone about how gaga she is over Duu, and Zukki is mesmerized as well).

SO EXCITE FLYING TO JAPAN TOMORROW NIGHT LILIUM IN 2 DAYS CAN'T WAIT.

Looks like doing vampires was a good choice, it's amped up the popularity of the Hello! Project to reach new levels.

Osaka shows for Lilium just ended. For the final curtain call, the entire cast come out to take their bows one by one, then everyone leaves the stage. Then Lily and Snow (Riho and Ayacho) come back out bearing a single flower (Lilium!) and leave it on the stage before departing in silence.

I'm crying. I'm crying because of how it links to the whole story, the last song, and everything in general. This was the best thing I've watched in years. T_T Help I've fallen and I can't get up...

Wow, that sounds amazing. I bet the show is incredible and beautiful. I can't wait to see the video when it comes out on DVD.

I'm sure this year's Shoujo Kageki is something spectacular compared to "Stacies" and "Warera Jeanne".

And, also, I saw your signature. First, the Lilium picture is so cute. Second, is the phrase you put in there a line from the play, because it's beautiful. And third, if you really are doing a Lilium-based fanfic, I can't wait!!

Post the link on here when it's ready, ok? :heart:

^It is incredible and beautiful. I have no idea how they're going to capture the light effects or even the shadowplay at one scene (the movements are telegraphed to show up in the spotlight and the shadows thrown across the side of the stage in dramatic effect...amazing work). Plus when they signify the rain, both sides of the theater are covered with rippling blue light. The effect's pretty magical as a result.

And yeah for my signature I saw someone post this pic and I was like YEAH THAT HAS GOTTA BE MY SIGNATURE. It pretty much sums up all the character relationships. And the phrase I put in is an adaptation of a line in the musical. It's a central theme, something Sylvatica repeats a couple of times. XD

Already a couple of stories written:

Marigold's past: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1771849
Lily and Snow's friendship: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1812385

There'll be more as I happily expand on the world of Lilium beyond the musical. I also wrote a direct sequel to what happens after the ending, but I'm holding that back until the DVD is out. Too many spoilers otherwise. XD

Holy cow! That sounds amazing!(Kudos to the staff :3) I wish the performances we do at my school could be nearly as amazing as what they do here.

And the stories are really good, I love them. Since the story you're going to write later is a sequel, does that mean the girl's are just going to be themselves? Like in one of those human+vampire love stories, past lives, and so on, so forth.

Cuz I love those. :deco:

The sequel is....a continuation of the events after the ending. Things happen. I can't really say more.

Mostly I'm going to be writing a lot of character pieces to illustrate the relationships the characters share. I WILL WRITE A SHIT TON OF CAMELLIA X SYLVATICA AND NO ONE IS GOING TO STOP ME. My OTP for this musical hahahaha.
