Dancing Ishikawa Goemon confirmed!

As mentioned in the recent Cinema Today article, the planned 2015 Lupin III musical will be performed by the Takarazuka Revue group.

Takarazuka Revue has an all-female cast consisting of many talented individuals. The company has performed many other musicals and stage shows in the past, including but not limited to Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Sengoku Basara, Jin and The Rose of Versailles.

Takarazuka Revue and the crew aren’t completely new to the Lupin franchise. Back in 1995, Miki Maya of the troupe performed a very short Lupin III parody act during their 95 TCA Special Maniac Takarazuka show.

What you can see above is that parody. It’s super silly and no doubt the 2015 musical will be very different. At least they have the facial hair spot on! We’re wondering if they can make Zenigata’s eyebrows any bigger…
