Mushishi Gets Stage Reading With Augmented Reality Visuals, Anime Cast

posted on by Karen Ressler
Anime director Nagahama to helm live show with original script

The official website for a new Mushishi "stage reading" event will begin accepting ticket pre-orders next Saturday. Mushishi anime director Hirsohi Nagahama will direct the show and several cast members, including Yuto Nakano (Ginko), Ai Kobayashi (Tanyuu), and Mika Doi (narrator), will reprise their roles.

The show is billed as a new type of stage production. The visuals will span a 270 degree field of view and will be generated using augmented reality technology.

Though the production is not a stage play, it will have an original script by Kazuaki Nakamura.

The show will run in Tokyo March 18-29, 2015.
