The official website for the Hamatora the Stage play announced on Tuesday that a second production has been green-lit. The new play will run for 10 performances from March 14 to March 22 (except on March 16 and March 17) at the Seiryō Kaikan Hall in Tokyo.
The first play, Hamatora The Stage: -Crossing Time-, ran from August 16 to 24 with 12 public performances at the Haiyūza Theater Roppongi in Tokyo. A DVD will go on sale on February 27. Below is the opening number "Incomplete world":
The first play featured the following cast:
Yuki Kurofuji as Murasaki
Saki Takahashi as Hajime
Ro Ōshima as Birthday
Shungo Takasaki as Ratio
Ran Sakai as Koneko
Kanai Yūsuke as Gasuke
Toshihiko Tanaka as Mao
Keisuke Igarashi as Morale
Rakuto Tochihara as Art
The story of the first play tied into the earlier manga and anime:
Troubleshooter of Hamatora Nice gets a call on his cell phone at Cafe Nowhere: "A murder by gun will happen in Yokohama. I want to borrow your group's help." A mysterious request from the police superintendent Art. At the same time, many other strange things begin to occur, including a disgusting delivery through the mail, the appearance of a strange adult, disappearing money, a test of strength, a stomach that won't stop growling, and a dashing Murasaki.
When the pieces that were scattered come together, the team will arrive at one man. The curtain opens on the real-time non-stop mystery/action story where the keyword is "two more hours!"
The production company Eigeki put together the first Hamatora play after working on Super Musical Saint Seiya, the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion stage play, and Lucky Star ≒ On Stage. It is also running the second play.
