Takki's 24th Birthday!!!
Johnnys-Net has updated with more photos for sale @ Enbujou! Now the number of photos for sale is more than 50! Wow!! I know Shock has more than 95 photos, but 50 is already a lot!!! Oh my gosh... Koichi and Takki fans are all going to be really broke!!
Also, there is a new pop-up message @ Johnnys-Net about counterfeit tickets!! Gosh! How did these people make counterfeit tickets??!! Also, I wonder how did the staff manage to check? Usually, they do not really look at the tickets very closely when tearing them off I think?
Found a English article regarding Enbujou resuming after the fire. it's really short, but it includes the cause of the fire and also Takki's thank you to the staff who helped to resume Enbujou so quickly.

Kame and Jin surprised Takki by attending Enbujou on the re-opening day (25th March). They went on stage and presented Takki with a bouquet of flowers. Of course they took the opportunity to promote their new album too. But more than that, I think it's really such a nice gesture for them to appear and support Takki. Thank you Kame and Jin!!!
Takki must have felt so down after the fire incident plus seeing fans turn up at the theatre for refunds. It must have really broke his heart to see things turn out this way!!!
Especially after putting in so much effort, time, training, sweat, heart and soul into Enbujou!!! I really hope Takki felt much better after Kame's and Jin's visit and show of support!!!

Guess what else I found @ Yahoo Auctions? I think it's the promotion pamphlet.
Who can resist NOT buying the Meiji Amino Collagen??!! I want mine!!!!
Added Shows @ Enbujou
has updated today that THREE additional shows have been added for Enbujou's schedule!!!
1) 12th April - 1300hrs
2) 17th April - 1300hrs
3) 24th April - 1300hrs
The additional shows are all added as an earlier show. This means that Takki originally only had one show planned on the above 3 days. Now, an earlier show has been added into the 3 days, making it 2 shows on each day. I don't think there is any way the overall Enbujou schedule can be extended because Shinbashi Theatre has already been pre-booked for other events after 25th April.

There are no changes to the schedule! Enbujou will resume tomorrow 25th march 2006 12PM show as planned! Yokatta!!! (^___^)

Johnnys-Net has posted a pop-up message when you enter the site today about the fire at Enbujou. In the pop-up message, there is a short apology statement from Takki and another notification message from Shinbashi Theatre.
Takki said that he himself was taihen and shocked when the fire occurred. He and the staf apologise sincerely for the incident. Takki said that he wishes Enbujou will resume as soon as possible.
I really hope Takki is fine. Especially since he says that he hopes Enbujou will resume as soon as possible. So far, Johnnys-Net has not posted any changes to the Enbujou schedule yet. Takki!!!!!! *cries*

Fire at Enbujou!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Pictures
+ News Clip
+ Statement from Shinbashi Theatre
More news reports!! Yomiuri
+ Jiji Press
OK, NOW I'M WORRIED!!!!! Forget that I said that I think Takki is ok and that Enbujou will continue as scheduled. Just look at the number of fire engines and ambulances!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIRTY-ONE fire engines and FOUR ambulances!!!!!!!
Apparently the fire was started by the gunpowder used in the fireworks. The gunpowder dropped onto some of the props in basement 2 through the gaps on the side of the moving stage (the stage can be ascended and descended). No one passed away but a number of staff suffered minor injuries. All the people in the audience were evacuated.
Enbujou is cancelled for 22nd March and 23rd March shows!!!! 24th March is originally a rest day. The schedule
posted at the Shinbashi Theatre shows that Enbujou will resume on the 25th March. But I don't think that's confirmed yet. They probably just didn't amend the schedule.
So far, Takki has only issued an apology to the press. He has not appeared publicly or updated Takiren yet.

Read some fans' comments about Enbujou's opening day! Here goes:
1) The whole performance went without a hitch. (Yata!!!)
2) There was a curtain call with lots of applause. Takki thanked everyone.
3) Many fans said that Takki's kimono pose as a female is very wonderful.

Takizawa Enbujou Starts!!!
(Editted @ 1PM)
I just went over to Oricon to check the charts and *GASP* Venus has risen into the top 20 of the daily ranking again!!! As of 05/03/2006, Venus is at #17!!!! Previously Venus had dropped out of the top 20, but it has fought its way back!!! Now, if Takki performs Venus during Enbujou, (which I highly suspect that he will) I'm sure Venus will climb its way up the top 20 chart again! Yeah~~~~~
Enbujou starts today!!! The very first show will start in a few hours!! Takki, ganbatte kudasai!!!! May Takki be very pretty in his female role, re-enact his role as Yoshitsune with much ease, showcase his singing and dancing on stage and shine through all 3 parts of the butai!!!! Please take good care of your health and be careful in all the stunts you are going to perform!!! Please do have proper meals too!!
I hope everyone will be awed and blown away by Takki's performance today!! I'm sure the food served will be scrumptous too! *LOL* Will sniff out reports and definitely watch out for WS tomorrow!!!
Tsubasa, I believe you have a full rest day today desho? Go support your aikata and watch Enbujou!!!!! (^_^)
Btw, one of the cast members,Hawayu-san has written about performing in Enbujou and a little introduction of the storyline.Hawayu-san's blog
Are they dancing to Venus in one of the pictures there?! *ROFLMAO*
