Kageki Shoujo Synopsis !!
Like Takarazuka Revue, the girls who attend Kouka Kageki High School's art academy play all parts of musical theater, whether female or male. Ai Narada is a jaded ex-idol who plays female roles while her partner Sarasa Watanabe is a rural girl who plays male roles. From school to stage to the rest of their lives there is no challenge these girls with their passion for acting cannot face.
