ekusudei: (Masaki Chauvelin)
Musumeyaku by Nakayama Kaho
ISBN 978-4-04-103884-0-C0093
Release date: April 27, 2016

Blurb on website: "A lonely, pure-hearted mobster [yakuza] falls in love with a Takarazuka musumeyaku!?

A Takarazuka musumeyaku, and the mob leader Takarazuka fan who watches over her secretly. Although it seems impossible for their lives to intersect, for an instant they quietly cross. A dramatic tale tracing their lives over ten years as they grow up a musumeyaku and a mobster."


True facts. This is the second book in a series. The first one, "Otokoyaku," sounds like it is mostly a weird retelling of the Phantom of the Opera, in which an otokoyaku top star who died in a stage accident 50 years ago has been hanging around protecting the actresses in the Grand Theater. [Problem, the Grand Theater we have now is not the same one that existed 50 years ago.] One of the reviews of the book comments on the truly ridiculous stage names and nick-names, and from what she listed, I have to agree. XD
