It was announced that Toa Serika, the second-place star of Cosmos Troupe will lead Takarazuka Paris Festival 2018!
Takarazuka Paris Festival, the annually-held event (dinner show), is hosted by few members from the same troupe, and is known for the fact that the host of the event is considered from the Revue that she is the next big thing.
Last year (2017), it was hosted by Suzuho Makaze (then the second-place star and now the top star) of Cosmos Troupe, and the year before (2016), Yuzuru Kurenai (then the second-place star and now the top star) of Star Troupe led the event.
Great news for Kiki (the nickname of Serika Toa), this is her ticket to stardom!
