A television commercial for the Moon Saga Yoshitsune Hiden (Moon Saga: The Secret of Yoshitsune) stage play began streaming on Thursday. The manga creator quartet Clamp drafted the story with singer Gackt in the lead role.
Gackt will play the title role of Minamoto no Yoshitsune, a general who was critical to the Genpei War that inspired the literary classic Heike Monogatari (Tale of the Heike). The play's version of Yoshitsune will possess strange powers.
The play will run in Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Osaka between July 15 and August 26. A manga series premiered in a Kodansha manga magazine before the play opened. The producers are also planning to develop the project into anime, game, film, and other venues.
