^^ Oh right; should've read it more carefully XD Haruna could've probably pulled off her character's death scene nicely should she have actually had one lol.

Hmmm, so it seems like this would've been a one-time performance either way then~

Waah so short cut! Is it a wig?^_^
I am not fond of sci-fi anime genre but I am enough curious to see her playing and especially since I know now that they do stage performance for anime like this, it is quite original!^^

I think it's pretty obvious that it's a wig. I highly doubt HARU would ever cut her hair that short lol. She also recently tweeted, "Ah, I didn't cut my hair."

Here's my translation of her blog entry: http://www.scandal-heaven.com/t9902-emil-2014-01-16-haruna#637482

Ahhhhh just posted my thoughts in HARU's blog but you guys talking about it here too so I c/c :

Well I was not expecting that at all.

It's probably a common thing in this kind of play but I did not expect her to play a guy :/ Hum not sure how I feel about it. I mean why don't they cast guys as guys and girls as girls?

I have to admit I was hoping she may play a cute character with a nice outfit =P So now playing a guy is far from what I had imagined lol!

Anyway... My biggest problem with that is that when this whole project started she probably didn't expect to play a guy and she is maybe disappointed now... Which would be sad Sad Of course maybe she knows that since the start and is happy about it? Hard to say. Maybe the main female characters were already taken and that was the only way for her to play in it?

But anyway yeah... So be it! I just wish and hope that she is happy and that this play is gonna be very fun for her! It's great that she will do something else for once and not related to SCANDAL!

GO HARU! LOVE

PS : Have to admit for a second I also thought (or feared!) she cut her beautiful hair^^ But then quickly realized that it would be stupid just for a play, they can use a wig and it looks completely real anyway!

Let me just had that now I learn that her char is not only a boy but that it's also a minor character? =(((( I thought maybe they gave her that role because the main female characters were taken so she got a main guy character :/

Well I hope it's not a very minor character and that she will have playtime! Again, just hope she is happy and that she will have fun Happy In the end it's not like she wants to be a movie superstar, it's just a cool thing to do so if she is satisfied with that role/project like that it's perfect Happy

Judging from her blog and tweets, she doesn't seem at all disappointed with her role; she seems to really be looking forward to being in this since she's a huge fan of Gineiden (IIRC she went to see the first 3 productions). So, I'm sure she's ecstatic to be in it at all, no matter how big or small her role will be.

And why not cast girls as guys and vice versa? I don't see anything wrong or unusual with it. In anime, especially, females are usually the ones voicing the younger male characters since adult male voices are typically too deep for those roles. It's exactly the same thing right here, with the only difference being that she'll be dressing and looking the part as well.

The only difference being this is not an anime but a real play ^^ Small detail. As I said this is surely something they do a lot but IMO it's still a bit weird because if the character is a guy well... take a guy to play the character :s I mean maybe i'm crazy but it should sound logical? =P

Not saying it's awful but it seems a bit unnatural in a real play. What you say for anime is true and is not a problem at all but in a real play it I think it's a bit unnatural.

Except if her character is a very young boy as you mention because for the voice, then I guess it's ok in that case because they give priority to the voice and add make up for the appearance.

I'm surprised and happy about Haruna's part, even if it's a minor role. She looks really cool and I think she's gonna rock this thing xD I'm really looking forward to see some footage of this.

Now I wasn't going to say anything, because I tell myself it's not worth it, but oh well here we go.

@HaRuRiNaMaMiToMo  sometimes I express myself in complicated ways, so please imagine me saying this in a calm and friendly way because that's how I intend it:

Remember the large quantity of male parts played by women through modern drama. They're not few.
Why does it feel 'weird' and 'unnatural' to you? Why do you even have to use those words? You maybe don't understand this, but the way you put things is overly simplistic and may be even a bit offensive to some, and it's really unnecessary since I believe this is supposed to be a nice thread about how Haruna is doing awesome things even if not directly related to the band.

Why do we all have to fit in this little cisgendered, binary tiny box (specialy when it's related to arts)? Why "girls should play girls" and "boys should play boys"? It's this little box that's unnatural, not a girl playing a boy in drama. Think about it a little. The arts are not made to fit in these little limited concepts created by our society, and Haruna is an artist, a musician. I hope you can understand that and appreciate the awesomeness of Haruna being in this play.

I don't think Haruna is very disappointed by her role - or disappointed at all really. She seems pretty excited to be playing the role. Chances are, Haru has known what her role will be for a while. The shows are going to start fairly soon, in only a less than a month. I don't think the director(s) would give any of their actors a month to prepare for their role. It would, honestly, be fairly bad directing to give actors such little time to prepare, especially if they're high profile stars like Haruna who have a lot of commitments. She was probably told ahead of time so she could practice on her own in-between her shows with SCANDAL. So she's probably known for a while and if she didn't like it, she could have tried to switch parts with a different actor. Actors have a lot more say in their parts than people think. I think it's fairly safe to assume that Haru doesn't mind her part if she chose to keep it.

I guess I can understand how people would think it's a bit strange or unnatural for a female to play a male character but it's also important to remember that this is live acting. Nothing is unnatural or off limits in live acting. It's also important to remember that this is acting. The entire point is that Haruna will not be herself and will be someone completely different.

As long as Haruna can embody her character and let herself go, she'll do just fine with her performance. I don't think we really have to worry about whether Haruna will be able to portray a male well or not. She has her moments of femininity as well as masculinity, she seems to flow between the two quite often. So I think she'll do fine portraying a male and it'll feel natural to her as long as she lets herself feel the character she's playing.

This will undoubtedly by a good challenge for Haruna and help her learn a lot of things. Live acting in general will teach her a lot, but having to play the part of the opposite gender will teach her even more. She has to step out of what she knows and do something she's never done before, that'll be the challenge for her. Ultimately, portraying the opposite gender is probably going to help her with her stage presence overall.

It'll teach her a lot not just about herself as a person, but also about herself as an artist.

-More pictures of HARU relating to Gineiden: http://www.scandal-heaven.com/t9987-haruna-gineiden

-My translation of snippets from this article about HARU's role and performance in the play:

There's a point that music lovers might be very interested in. Vocalist HARUNA of the popular girl band SCANDAL is cast as Emil von Selle, a student of the Galactic Empire school. Expanding her range of activities as an artist, it's worth noting that for HARUNA, who is interested in plays and acting, her first role is that of playing a boy. The live stage for SCANDAL, a band that continues to stir up quite a large movement in the Japan rock scene, is different than one of a theater stage, and she takes an active part in this play as an actress.

Swinging his arms and marching within the Galactic Empire Army, Emil von Selle, played by SCANDAL・HARUNA, appears on stage. This scene is her character's first appearance. Emil, who is a student, calls out to Reinhard. With a passionate look, Emil speaks to Reinhard: 「Your Excellency! Please win this. And......please obtain the galaxy!」 However, Reinhard doesn't respond to Emil's passion and murmurs, 「You remind me of my late close friend...... They said the same thing as you did」.

Reinhard is a genius of war; asking him to take charge is the best thing to do. Reinhard keeps being told that, and he's lost a number of important things in the war so far. But, for his reputation, the great leader Reinhard von Lohengramm must mask his sorrow. In order to move forward, he must don his cloak as a daring and resolute soldier. You can catch a glimpse of the commander's true feelings, pain, and trembling heart in this one-act. Emil fulfills the role of being a key person who softens Reinhard's heart. HARUNA valiantly challenged that difficult role and made it her own.

A play with Hiroyuki Takami as Paul von Oberstein, Akinori Nakagawa as Olivier Poplan, and Makiya Yamaguchi as Walter von Schenkopp, who are experienced stage actors, could be quite nerve-wracking. However, HARUNA showed us such flourish that she almost pushes that aside. Although her activities as SCANDAL's vocalist is a different area, a star is a star anywhere. A subordinate who is considerate of senior officers at times, and other times having hot emotions and drawing near to people; a future soldier who is sincere and honest. It made ​​me fully enjoy the character, and being able to see HARUNA perform like this is a valuable experience.

It's not just a play; it also contains highlights like acrobatic breakdancing, ballet, and singing. Specialists of the trade are present, and you can enjoy entertainment other than the play; you really get your money's worth. Among those, Olivier Poplan (Akinori Nakagawa) sings a lamenting song at the end of the story, coupled with Olivier's luck-pusher position, that touches those who hear it. For the finale, a chorus is sung by the entire cast. HARUNA also has a solo part. A generous applause endlessly echoes during the curtain call.

Oh man, this article makes me want to watch the play! So Haruna's performance was outstanding, eh? I'd expect no less from her. Plus, I was assuming she won't have a solo part, but from the article, she has!

So practically, we'll see her dance, act and sing! Yey!  Clap  *eagerly waits for the DVD*

Thank you for translating the article, Ms. TGE!

She seems to play the child that maintains the positive atmosphere and keeping people's hearts from turning stone cold with all the on going hostility. Since the article seems to praise her ability and efforts, I think we should all be proud of her. As a side comment, she suits the role perfectly height-wise. though I am shorter than her slightly, I couldn't help but blush internally and have a fan girl moment when I saw the photos of her standing in front of the captain and generals (if that's what their rank is).  Onion Please

Oh so she has some solo and even dances?! That's amazing. Got to admit I was a bit afraid that she only had a very small/insignificant role to play and that even if the experience would be nice for her, she would feel a bit disappointed by it.

But after reading this translation (thanks!) I'm happy and it seems HARU must be too  Clap 

Now hoping that they release some kind of a short preview/promo so we could see her in action  Please Onion

I think you guys are slightly misinterpreting some parts. The writer of the article says that there is "acrobatic breakdancing" in the play, but never mentions that HARU herself does it (she's playing a young boy = I highly doubt she "breakdances"). The writer says that there are pros/specialists that do that + ballet, so I doubt that any of the main cast members are involved with that.

Also, about the HARU's "solo," due to where the writer mentions it in the article I think they meant that she has a "solo" in the last song that the cast does, most likely meaning that she sings maybe a line or two by herself.

That's what I understood about the solo yeah but for the rest I was hoping she had some dancing too.

Now that you point this out it makes more sense like that yes. Oh well it's her first play, step by step is ok too, no need to do everything at once. The article still says her play is really good and I guess that's the most important in the end.

Thank you very much for translating the article! I knew Haru was in the play but totally missed this translation ^^;

I'm very happy to know that Haru got a significant role and man! those compliments <3 I wish I could watch the play as well. I'd love to see Haruna acting. I like what they say about "a star anywhere". So true. 

I was hoping they'd let Haru dance too since she can and I was almost expecting it because I've watched Korean musicals and they have the whole cast dancing sometimes. I'm glad that she's got a solo part during the ending song though ^^ 

All in all, I feel like a proud grandmama! even though she's like 10 years older than me :p
