All-Female Phoenix Wright Musical Sequel In Photos

Take that! Again! The all-female Takarazuka Revue troupe is best known its musical stage shows where women actresses play both male and female roles.

The Revue's shows range from the traditional (Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma!) to anything but (stage versions of Oliver Stone's JFK, Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby).

Takarazuka star Ranju Tomu is once again Phoenix Wright in Gyakuten Saiban 2 - Truth Resurrected, Again. This time, Tomu is sporting a new hairdo. There's also a new character, Luce Areia, a California native who comes to Phoenix for help.

"The decision to produce a sequel was based on the positive feedback from fans of the original," Capcom stated back in March. "The combination of Capcom's story about a passionate young attorney who must defend those who are wrongly accused with elements of love and romance that the Takarazuka Revue provides led to tickets selling out on the first day."

Takarazuka uses the game's English language character name, Phoenix Wright, instead of the character's original Japanese name, Ryuichi Naruhodo, for its musical versions.

The performances in Hyogo Prefecture have ended, but the Phoenix Wright musical will be running in Tokyo until September 15.
