Updated 8th January 2013: The Takizawa Kabuki 2012 DVD will be released on the 20th February! It’s been ‘postponed indefinitely’ for a while now and we were getting a little frustrated with the wait, but finally the new release date has been confirmed on J-net today! Moreover, pictures of the pouches for Tackey shop have been posted as well.
Finally! Takizawa Kabuki 2012, staged from April to May earlier this year, will be released on DVD
on 14th November! There are 2 versions and actually, both are must-buys to me. Like previous DVDs, they place the Family Show in LE, and Making in RE. VERY tough to choose only one! Based on DVD footage alone, I’d go for RE coz Documentary wins lol~ BUT there’s a booklet in LE, plus the cover for LE is sooooo nice!!!!!
滝沢歌舞伎2012 DVD Limited Edition
List price: 8,800yen
Pre-order @ CDJapan | Amazon | HMV | Tower
*Comes with 52-page booklet
Disc 1: Act 1 (approx. 90mins)
Disc 2: Act 2 (approx. 80mins)
Disc 3: Family Version show in May 2012 (approx. 90mins)
There will be a freebie (pouch – same design but different color for each edition) when you buy at Tackey shop. You’ll get the PINK pouch with the Limited Edition DVD, and the RED pouch with the Regular Edition DVD.
Hmm… I like the pink pouch yo… but the 26% discount on Amazon is a bit too hard to resist… I think I’ll give up the pouches so I can get both versions. I NEED that documentary, but I don’t wanna miss out on the family show, the cover & that booklet!
