Like the Takarazuka Review, the young women who attend the Kouka Kageki High School’s Academy of Arts play all roles in musical theater, whether female or male. Narada Ai is a jaded former idol who plays female roles – her roommate, playing male roles, is the bright-eyed peasant woman Watanabe Sarasa. From school to the stage to the rest of their lives, there is no challenge these young women cannot meet with their passion for performance.
