Yesterday I spent valentine’s day watching a stage series that I completely fell into last summer! While I was super pissed and skeptical of this installment of the stage - due to favourite characters (Amane, Misu, Shuuto’s) and actors NOT coming back (Tamaki, Nakamura, Shuuto, Hirose Daisuke, Naoya) this installment, and also some announcing that the next installment after this one would be their last (Amane/Takaki, Misu/Nakamura) - I went in with an open mind and was ready to accept whatever they were gunna send at me. And I did. Lets see how that went shall we?

Kaito Yuri has gone missing and it seems like he might have not only betrayed Sakura but also Mamoru. But Mamoru stays strong that Kaito isn't a bretrayer and that he's still alive, though many believe he's dead after 6 months with no contact from him have passed. Mamoru is sent on a solo Gradutaion (Sotsugyou) Mission to stop the AI hacker known as 'Necromancer' who had broken into Sakura's security system and caused havock. With the occassional help from Doctor Ten, Doctor Three, and the three new Sakura recruits, Mamoru embarks on his mission, alone.


Maybe it's because this was my first time seeing Messiah live the flesh but I felt there was a massive step up in production and everything in this stage! The most impressive thing was the choreography for the action. Holy moly, the stunts and the timing was amazing! Also I really enjoyed the projection mapping this time around and how they used it. As usual the music was amazing and also super nostalgic and hearing the bell when the stage began! I cried at the ending to this but for a different meaning than everyone else. I really, really enjoyed this which I didn't expect to and I am definitely looking forward to the next installment. The negatives I have is this story has two plots and one of the plots I absolutely loved and the other plot I absolutely hated and don't want to remember. The second negative is; I really don't like the three new recruits. They're like carbon copies of Messiah character's we've already met and they're boring and I don't really want to get to know them, which is unfortunate because the actors themselves are adorable!

Rating: I don't think I've rated the Messiah series at all up to now... but I'll put it at a safe 8/10 for now.


You’ve been warned; all the spoilers ahead!

( Give me the soundtrack! ) )

Okay I'll stop here! Pretty sure I've spent like 4 hours making this review! I'm done!

Hope you enjoyed it!

It is a few days late in true MP style! But I've had a drink so lets get this done!! ^_^

Are you ready?!


There were only about 13 rows full of people, and it was at least a 25 row theatre! So I was a bit concerned about whether it was getting the right press and stuff.

If you don't know the story then sorry I ain't explaining it here. It's very faithful to the anime (and therefore the manga) so just watch the first season or read a summary on it. There was more humour in this and I think more solo time for the 'minor' characters in the stage play which was nice ^_^

OH! And once again that theatre smelt amazing!!!

( I think I'm getting better at these reviews ) )


Overall: I seriously enjoyed this! This is one of the plays I was seriously NOT gunna watch because the second anime season was SO crap so I forgot just how good the first season one! But holy crap, this play did NOT let me down! All the actors were amazing! The project mapping and lighting and costumes and humour were also amazing! Ono definitely stole the show! You could not see Ono at all, it was all Guren! <3 If you're a fan of the anime I think you'll find this play faithful and the songs add a little extra to it - Ono and Hashimoto were the best while Suzuki was Girigiri xD I really enjoyed this!

Rating: 7.5/10 (Forgot to do this for Basara! I give it a 6/10!)

Have you seen the play? Will you? What about the anime/manga? Will you possibly rewatch season 1 alongside me?? What did you think of my report/the anime/manga/the play?
