Ive never understood Takarazuka. Women who dress up like men, scary make up.That and these women are TALL, easily 1.80+!

I think that they are a response to the fact that kabuki is acted only by men now, because the women involved in the performances when the art form was in its nascent state were all prostitutes on the side, which corrupted the cultural potential of the genre.

Another way of looking at them is as a group of feminists.

The title of this piece is obviously intended to mock "heroes" and the fact that they are "galactic" means that they are not down to earth like the females portraying them in some sort of parodic clip from the epic

"battle of the sexes".

@ubikwit, go study Takarazuka for a long time and come back later. You are currently not high enough level to contribute anything of value here (and that's saying something).
