Aran Kei Retirement Announcement Asahi Online: Aran Kei Retirement Announcement Interview

...
(I was in a hurry to get this done, so this isn't a literal translation of the whole article, though the quotes from Aran are as correct as I could get them.)
Article informs us Touko was wearing a white jacket and black slacks and looked very neat, with a fresh expression on her face.
The interview starts with an intro and announcements from Kobayashi Kouichi. Then Aran begins to speak:
"I'm Takarazuka Revue's Star Troupe's Aran Kei.

Aran Kei Interviews

...
This show had a tango theme, so expect some good tango music, in addition to Aran's always phenomenal singing. (Note: a couple songs were cut from the disk for copyright reasons.)
...
It features the songs "El Halcon", sung by Aran Kei, "Nanatsu no Umi, Nanatsu no Sora" sung by Aran Kei, Toono Asuka, and Yuzuki Reon, and "Revue Orchis" sung by Yuzuki Reon.
...
We're promised on-location shots at the Hotel Montore Kobe, Spanish "flamenco" shots, a black and white "Christmas Date", and a talk session with Aran Kei (her former Snow Troupe senpai, now top star of Star Troupe.)
...
Takarazuka Personal Books Series 2: Aran Kei The first in the second series of star photo books features my own favorite, Aran Kei of Star Troupe. Lots of gorgeous photos of Touko, including in a wedding tux, along with stage photos, an interview, and a "Talk" with Yamato Yuuga of Cosmos Troupe - who had recently been her co-star for "Singing in the Rain".

Aran Kei and Toono Asuka Interview
...
Aran Kei: That's right.
...
Aran Kei: Traitor (laughs).
------------ Aran-san, is there something in particular that you're looking forward to in your first trip to Hakataza?
Aran Kei: Naturally, I'm looking forward to the end of the performance (laughs).
...
Aran Kei: I heard the backstage is really pretty too...
...
Aran Kei: It's set in the Caribbean islands in the 1940's. A thief and charlatan - his nickname is Dagu, but his name is Dagobert - is told by a friend, "I want you to steal a certain woman" and he sets off to accomplish the task. First of all, it's a comedy about how he is actually "stealing" a princess from a certain European country, who was visiting the Carribbean. It's a busy show, with lots of running around the stage, but the theme song is great, there's lots of dancing, and it's really, really interesting to watch! (laughs)
------------ It sounds fun. I've heard there's a midair stunt in the opening scene too.
Aran Kei: I'm in a black costume and I come down from the ceiling to steal some jewels.
...
Aran Kei: In the end, my thief and charlatan Dagu has stayed the same all the way through (laughs). Dagu is a thief, but he's also a very naïve and genuine young man. I think that's nice (laughs).
------------ Aran-san, which is the scene you put the most effort into?
Aran Kei: Not surprisingly, it's the scene at the church where Dagu tells Jennifer about his past.
...
Aran Kei: It's a show we first did for Kozuki Wataru-san's farewell show.
...
Aran Kei: I think the two shows are a really good pairing. It'll be really good, so even people from far away should travel to Hakataza to see it (laughs).
------------ Well then, you two are the new Star Troupe top combination, and you're having your Hakataza debut as well, so be sure to give us your impressions of each other.
Aran Kei: Alright. In the practice hall, Asuka is so overzealous that I often think she should take it easier. But onstage, no matter what happens, nothing seems to upset her.
Toono Asuka: Aran-san is someone you can really rely on. Even when I'm being a real bother, she always pulls me through.
------------ Your good energy has made this a really pleasant interview as well. Last of all, please each tell me your goals for the Hakataza show.
Aran Kei: It's the first Hakataza show for the new Star Troupe.

Ticket Pia: Top Otokoyaku Special Volume 1 - Aran Kei I couldn't resist breaking my "Different star in every translation rule" when I saw this interview with my favorite star Aran Kei. Plus translating online text is much easier, as I can use online kanji dictionaries... A short interview with Touko from the Ticket Pia website, in which she discusses Sakura/Secret Hunter and her voice problems during Hays Code.
