Aaah...have zero interest in watching it now. I wish they would also cast actresses who can sing a little better....that tux/moon song... ._. The outers song seemed pretty cool tho! The trio looked cool though I'm not a huge fan of how shiny they made Fisheye's costume. Ah well. Here's to hoping that Helios is amaaaaze.

I wasn't exactly pleased with the singing either. The outers are amazing, and I'm loving the shiny fisheye! Can't wait to see the rest of the musical!

I'm still kinda on the fence about watching it. On the one hand I'm super curious about the plot, but on the other hand the singing and acting makes it hard for me to suspend my sense of disbelief that and my brain won't stop telling my how the costume look so cheesy with all that shinny fabric.

I guess I'm just really not used to seeing 2D characters played by real people.

Have you ever watched the original SuperS musicals? Costuming aside (it was pretty obnoxious at times in the old Myu), the singing and acting are on point and the story is different enough for it to be its own thing (Old Myu have their own canon anyone but thats another discussion). If you have never really been into the musical aspect of SM, I would highly recommend the SuperS ones which are 1995 Summer – Dream Soldiers – Love – Into Eternity… and its revision, 1996 Spring – Dream Soldiers – Love – Into Eternity… (Revised Edition) – The Saturn Resurrection Chapter. These musicals are what really hooked me into watching Myu and I always recommend them to those new to the musicals. I can direct you where to download and watch if you want. :3

Thanks, Brit-chan! For me, I think it's just a general unfamiliarity with anime-based musicals that kinda throws me off (again, that weird thing about seeing a familiar 2D character as a real human being). Maybe seeing some more musicals will help get over the "erk?" factor.

Trust me, I understand! PGSM was my first live action SM experience and I found it weird at first but eventually adjusted to it over time. I enjoy musicals in general enough that once I started really getting into the SM ones, I ate it up. So if you also like musicals, I think you can get into the the SM ones. I know a lot of fans praise the newer ones, but I've personally felt they aren't nearly up to par as the older ones in terms of the music, singing and acting. The only one I've felt did well enough was "La Reconquista" as that one felt fairly solid in terms of the story and a few of the actors.

Anywho...I'll get off my soap box and wait to watch this musical eventually. xD

Wow I'm reading this summary and there's a few scenes that seem like they were inspired from the original SuperS, the audition and bar scene in particular. Omg even Usagi is mopping! (Another scene from SuperS). After that beginning it seems to take more after the manga with the sickness and all that... The Pegasus interpretive dance sounds....odd. (I think i'd rather the light effects they used back in SuperS xD).

Looks like they kept the Circus performance after the intermission, but quite a bit different it seems.

....Ooooh I actually like the Dark Helios concept! I hope when I actually see it played out it's as good as it sounds. :O

SuperS and more Amour Spoilers:
 

It seems like this is an improvement story-wise over the previous ones so I guess I'll have to suck it up and watch Un Nouveau Voyage and then this one once it's recorded and translated. ^^; If only I could get past the off-key singing... >.>

So I finally saw it, months after I should have done it and I found it good. I found it better than the first three, the new actresses actually can sing (it's still not perfect, but hey, improvement is better than nothing). I miss the fact that Satomi could act and I'm not sure I like this moon's acting, but as I said... better than nothing.

I didn't cringe at all, it was cute, I was more emotionally invested in this one (whether this being because it's actually well-written or me being biased because I love Dreams) and seeing Helios was great.

It's also the only Hawk-Eye I likes beside Hikari, which is saying something.

It's actually giving me hopes that Stars (if made) will be done well.

(This musical also gave me a vibe of the Old Myu so the melancholy was very welcomed).

So that's about all I can say without spoiling, but I loved it. I know I say I loved them all and I defend the New Myus no matter what, but this one was better, didn't make me cringe at all (apart from the fact that Helios' canon cape-robe seems more like a dress than anything else, but that's not cringy it's just... costume problems).

Yay!
