More About Kageki Shoujo!

Young women who attend the Kouka Kageki High School arts academy, like the Takarazuka Revue, perform in all areas of musical theater, whether they are men or women. Narada Ai is a tired ex-idol who plays female roles; her roommate, who plays male roles, is a bright-eyed country girl named Watanabe Sarasa. There is no challenge these young women cannot face with their passion for acting, from school to the stage for the rest of their lives.
