Does it kind of seem like Kaji is trying to move towards live-action? He was in a stage play, he's in that live-action adventure game coming out, and now this.

Granted, seiyuu make appearances in live-action now and then (Maaya Uchida is in the Wotakoi movie, Jun Fukuyama was in a Shoujo manga adaption), but it seems to be a recent trend with Kaji.

He's also going to be in School of Rock (the stage play).

Also, a few seiyuu have been in an ongoing production of West Side Story.

There are a lot of actors who started out trying to do stage/singing but had more success as seiyuu, but now with the trend of seiyuu doing huge concerts in costume, I wonder if it's that they have to do both now?
