NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki joined Sashihara Rino and Watanabe Mayu’s Hanagumi pose in TV show Kayokyoku

  February 19, 2013

AKB48’s Ace, HKT48’s Ace and this time, even NMB48’s ace joined Mayuyu’s favorite Takarazuka Hanagumi pose.

At the ending of the show, when a camera turned on them, the trio immediately made Hanagumi pose to the worldwide audience!


Oh wait, I know Mayuyu loves Takarazuka. But what’s Hanagumi? What’s Hanagumi pose?

The Takarazuka Revue,  a Japanese all-female musical theater troupe based in Takarazuka city, Hyōgo has five main troupes: Hana, Tsuki, Yuki, Hoshi, and Sora.

The five troupes of the Takarazuka Revue have certain differences of style and material which make each unique.

And Mayuyu especially loves Hanagumi (Hana-troupe) among the five.

(whenever she pops up on Google Plus, she almost always talks about Takarazuka non stop)

These are the famous pose of Hanagumi. Don’t you think they look great?

Last time, Mayuyu and Sashiko sneaked from the back of show host Esumi and nailed the pose together.

Her fellow team A member Kobayashi Marina is also a fan of Takarazuka, and you often see them talking about the group so enthusiastically. Usually so enthusiastic that almost nobody can’t understand what mayuyu is talking…..

Kobayashi and Watanabe were even at the same lane at February 11th’s handshake event, and Mayuyu wrote on Google Plus that she is eager to see and talk with passionate fans of Takarazuka at the event! (Watanabe’s google plus post)
