How and why are they making this? :/ The only thing that anime had going for it was pretty characters.

I thought the only good thing about the show was our mockumentaries on it. xD

Maybe someone will wish the actors "good luck" and the directors will be cursed for making such an abomination possible. ;3

Also, how can you make a musical when the main character barely says anything? lol

They could do that... or actually give her a proper name, lol.

I am not sure about the rest of the collective, but I always called her Amnesia

Now now. She more than makes up for her lack of intelligible dialogue with her uncanny ability to get herself killed.

That's above average I think, lol.

I shall have to revise my script again, sigh... LOL

Believe it or not, it sold fairly well too! It broke even on disc sales alone. Add in game sales and other merchandise and it was a success! Now a musical! When is the live action movie I wonder?

Maybe the game was better? To be fair, I did watch the show until the end, so it was at least good enough to hold my attention.

Indeed I have not played the Otome game so I am not judging the original material.

However, I still think it will be as difficult to adapt the game to the stage as it is to anime, if not moreso! Unless they do it like Rashomon, perhaps the original choose your own adventure story and stage play with multiple versions of the same thing.

I am not really enjoying game->anime adaptations that much lately with the multiple routes thing. It is very difficult to do well. Da Capo and Little Busters! did it well in my opinion but lately Amnesia, Photo Kano and others have done it poorly. Ah well...
