Kenichi Suemitsu will again direct the play and pen the script. Hiroki Suzuki (pictured below), who played Mikazuki Munechika in the play, is also returning.
The play opened at Tokyo's Theater 1010 on May 3, with an additional performance on May 14, before moving on to Osaka's Mielparque on May 17. Every performance of the play's original run was sold out. The play held live viewing events of its concluding festivities in 60 theaters across Japan as well as in theaters in Taiwan and Hong Kong on May 20. Although the performance was a weekday, more than 40,000 people attended the live viewing events.
The franchise is also had a musical adaptation that debuted on May 27 in Tokyo and in Kyoto on June 23. Marvelous (Yowamushi Pedal stage play) adapted the game into a "straight play," while Nelke Planning (The Prince of Tennis, Vampire Knight musicals) adapted it into a stage musical.
