The all girls idol musical 『LILIUM-Shoujo Junketsu Kageki』 that began this year is the 3rd installment of the Girls' Drama Club project.
Right now, on top of being able to see the formation dance Morning Musume '14 is famous for that is generating so much buzz, S/mileage too is challenged to be part of the same.
The level of perfection there was to be expected of course, but the core of the musical, the singing, is also something to look out for.

Instead of having regular choral singing with the full cast, there were clear solo parts for each, and on top of displaying ordinary singing prowess, they were able to express the emotions of the lines in song, which is what makes a musical a musical. More than just as actors, but it is precisely because of their strength as singers that they were able to pull it off so admirably.
In any case, their 「power of expression」 was simply amazing.

Even among those, the ones to look out for are the two leads, Sayashi Riho and Wada Ayaka.
The interaction between the pair is painfully sweet and pitiful at the same time, and a loyal representation of the tenuous bonds between these fragile girls.

June 15th 2014(Sun) marked the end of the 10 days of the Tokyo showings, and on the final day the full cast came out to a standing ovation for the curtain call. With the end of the Tokyo shows, the musical 『LILIUM ─Shoujo Junketsu Kageki─』 is already receiving rave reviews on the Internet.

With a cast of currently popular idols like the selected members of Morning Musume '14 and all of S/mileage, even before the tickets formally went on sale to the public, it was entirely within expectations to see the fans themselves having trouble getting tickets.
The Girls' Drama club that was newly formed in the spring of this year is basically a female-only theatrical cast launched to show off the strength of these idols in both song and dance in the form of musical productions.
Amidst the storm of praise on Twitter and other web sources, there were also many opinions coming from theater professionals who have watched 『Lilium』, stating how they felt once more the true strength of Hello! Project.

Actress & Commentator Nakae Yuri says
「The last scene was shocking in of itself, but what was most shocking to me was how capably the girls of Morning Musume and S/mileage were able to pull off this dark fantasy.」

Actress Fukunaga Marika says
「The potential, hard work, charm, songs, dancing, acting, the cuteness, the coolness, the beauty, the dual forces of light and dark, positivity and negativity -- all these things combined to fill me to the bursting, and I almost felt like throwing up. This was how maddeningly wonderful it was.」

Such was the praise coming from them.

The scriptwriter is Suemitsu Kenichi from the Kansai region. 『LILIUM ─Shoujo Junketsu Kageki─』 is the 3rd project he has worked with them since last year's 『Warera Jeanne~Shoujo Seisen Kageki~』.
It will be showing at Osaka's Morinomiya Piloti Hall on June 20th and 21st after this.


There are no flowers that bloom eternally, no matter how beautiful they were, they were wilt eventually
───────── The story of love and hate woven by these girls trapped within the garden of a thousand years.
