Trivia / Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight

Go To

  • Actor Allusion: Rinmeikan's plot involves five of its students competing in the Auditions in an attempt to save their school's perfomance department from closing down due to a lack of students entering that program. Tamao Tomoe used to share the same voice actress as Nijigasaki school idol Setsuna Yuki from Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS, a spin-off from the Love Live! franchise, where two of its sister series in the main continuity involved both school idol groups competing in the titular contest to save their schools from shutting down. In a case of bitter irony for Tamao, and a first for the franchise, the threat of Setsuna's school being shut down in the game is non-existent unlike her predecessors.
    • During the event 11th Trophy Road - Collab Performance Black Swan's Challenge, Hikari and Shizuha were given the roles of Sherlock Shellingford and Hercule Barton respectively.
    • In the 15th Trophy Road - Disorder! Strongest Encounter collab event, Rui and Fumi temporarily posed as RAISE A SUILEN's CHU2 and PAREO to keep their performance going while the latter two were fixing some technical issues.
  • Actor-Shared Background: It's been established that Mahiru is a baton twirling champion, having won several competitions as a child. Her voice actress, Haruki Iwata, also competed in baton twirling competitions as a child and was even a champion in some of those competitions and still has an impressive dexterity with a baton to this day. Unsurprising as she's required to use them for the stage play. Furthermore, Mahiru also loves baseball, a trait she shares with Iwata.
  • Author Appeal / Take That!: Akiko Kodama, who directed the stage musicals, previously worked as a director at Takarazuka Revue at a time that was, according to some opinions, rather turbulent, with top stars appointed in rather surprising ways by a cryptic management and competition between actresses encouraged beyond a healthy degree. The Giraffe might well be a representation of this type of management.
  • Darkhorse Casting:
  • Meaningful Release Date: The seventh chapter of Re LIVE's Main Story featured Maya being mysteriously erased from existence and from everyone's memories, and was released on June 1 for the Japanese server, which is Maho Tomita's (Maya's voice actress) birthday, and July 25, the day after Maya's actual birthday for the Worldwide server.
  • Real-Life Relative: In the English dub of the anime, the voice director and Maya's voice actress (Olivia Swasey) are father and daughter.
  • Release Date Change: The film Rondo Rondo Rondo became one of many, many works to be delayed by the COVID-19 Pandemic, having been originally scheduled for May 29th, 2020 before being pushed back to August 7th.
  • Voiced Differently in the Dub: Maggie Flecknoe uses a deeper voice for Mahiru compared to Haruki Iwata's higher, breathy one.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In late 2019, there were plans for a concert the following year known as Starry Session that would feature previously released songs but the vocalists were swapped. The COVID-19 outbreak would ultimately cancel the event though in 2021 a bonus CD was released with short, draft versions of the songs that would have been performed. Fortunately the concert was revived in 2023 but the cast only performed the draft versions.
    • The Memory of Revue artbook for the second movie contains numerous revue storyboards that were either retooled or cut entirely. Many of them indicated early concepts had planned them to be darker, or at least in a similar tone to the Revue of Annihilation.
