The Needlemouse song was requested by Sega to be performed live at their 2011 Sonic Boom community event, where AJ Pinkerton and Peter Srinivasan first recognized the demand for their product and began development on a series of popular games as musical numbers.

I didn't know there was a PSO2 stage play, though one of those things I never enquired.

Would love to script my own Sonic stageplay someday. StarKids inspired me for it.

Wow! I mean, I can see why because Sakura Wars use a lot of Japanese cultural themes, just didn't expect Sega would have such a deal to have so many Sakura plays.

Yes, somehow in Japan this franchise garnered more support from fans than even Sonic the Hedgehog himself.

I find that both hard to believe, but understandable given the cultural significance Sakura Wars is all about.
