Takizawa Kabuki 2014 DVD Release Date: 16 July

If you missed my FB post this morning, 16 July 2014 is the date! It’s been a while since we had a 3-version release, but I’m so glad there’s a DVD! The play was really good this year, and of course it’s special cos it was held outside Tokyo for the first time.

*If you purchase either “Documentary Edition” or “Photobook Edition” from Tackey Shop, you will receive a free gift of an ‘original travel case’, different designs, one for each edition.

It’s hard to choose between A & B. I love behind-the-scenes, and Takizawa Kabuki documentaries have been the awesomest ever! Plus they are usually over 100mins. So it’s a MUST BUY, although the cover is my least favourite. “Photobook Edition” has the best cover (hadaka taiko!Takki~~) and there’s a 52p booklet. Imagine, a stage photo costs 500yen. This photobook might just be worth 26,000yen lol. Okay, Jacket C. Nice cover too, simple and pretty. But no bonuses, so C can be easily given up.

Then there’s the Tackey shop goodies. “Original travel cases” are perhaps those where you can slot in your passports? I know it’s weird to say this, but I kinda hope they don’t look so nice, so that I won’t be tempted! Cos the discount at Amazon is too hard to resist! 23% is really quite a substantial amount. Well, it’s headache time for us again, but my advice is… if ‘die-die’ can only choose one version, please go for A!

Update: Avex has gotten the Jackets A & B mixed up. In fact, the nice cover (hadaka taiko!Takki~~) is Jacket A Documentary Edition! Their initial post showed the wrong covers lol.

Takizawa Kabuki 2014 – Tokyo Schedule

The Tokyo shows schedule for Takizawa Kabuki has been posted on J-net:



We’re back~

I’ve moved the site over to a new server, renewed the hosting plan for another year, and here we are with a new look… for Christmas! I’ll try to add more content to the site when I have more time on hand. Meanwhile, here’s a quick summary of the major events in the coming months:

  • 31 Dec 2013: Johnnys Countdown @ Tokyo Dome
  • 9 Jan – 6 Mar 2014: “Nezumi, Edo wo Hashiru” NHK drama!
  • 10 Jan 2014: “HAMU” Drama SP on air!
  • 6 – 30 Mar 2014: Takizawa Kabuki @ Hakata-za, Fukuoka
  • Apr – May 2014: Takizawa Enbujo @ Shimbashi Enbujo, Tokyo

I might have also missed out this tidbit earlier…but Takki will be singing the insert song for the Drama SP “HAMU”, and the title of the song is “あなただけに今歌うこの詩” (this song that I sing now only for you). Tanoshimi!!
