Gekidan Gekiharo 11 Details Announced

11 06 2011

Details for Berryz Koubou and C-ute’s joint Gekidan Gekiharo 11 stage play have been released.

Berryz Koubou and C-ute will act in a female version of Sengoku Jieitai 1549 where 2 female platoons of the self defense forced to time travel to either the stage set of 1979 or 2005 war time where both will try to survive battle.

I am very surprised about the details since I didn’t expect to see them do a stage play about a war time manga, but it is very interesting since we will get to see most of the members act in a unique story where soldiers time travel to different times.

As mentioned before they will be split into two teams where they will each perform a version of the stage play with different directors:

  • Team 1 “Moonlight” – Shimizu Saki, Tsugunaga Momoko, Tokunaga Chinami, Suzuki Airi, Okai Chisato, Hagiwara Mai
  • Team 2 “Winds and Clouds”– Sudou Maasa, Natsuyaki Miyabi, Kumai Yurina, Sugaya Risako, Yajima Maimi, Nakajima Saki

Since they are mixed up it gives fans of both of the groups a chance to see their favorite members act together and since each team has different directors we will be able to see two different plays since they will most likely have different styles and maybe even different lines.

The image above showing off all of the members in costume is amazing since we get to see all of them in their character and while we won’t be able to find out what each one of their characters will be like until the play starts it’s easy to see that each member takes their role seriously due to their expressions.

For now I hope fans are already planning to attend the play since this unique story with H!P members is just too good to pass up, and while it is a few months away I hope we get to see some videos of the rehearsals to find out a bit more about who is playing what character.

“The play will run from 9/16 ~ 10/2 (★” means Team 1, “◎” means Team 2):

◎ 9/16 – 19:00
★ 9/17 – 15:30 / 18:30
◎ 9/18 – 12:00 / 15:30 / 18:30
★ 9/19 – 12:00 / 15:30 / 18:30
★ 9/20 – 19:00
◎ 9/21 – 19:00
★ 9/22 – 19:00
◎ 9/23 – 12:00 / 15:30 / 18:30
★ 9/24 – 12:00 / 15:30 / 18:30
◎ 9/25 – 12:00 / 15:30

★ 9/30 – 19:00
◎ 10/1 – 11:30 / 15:00 / 18:30
★ 10/2 – 11:30 / 15:00
