Hamatora Gets 2nd Stage Play in Tokyo in March

posted on by Egan Loo
10 performances by Eigeki, who also put on 1st play last August

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:

Kensuke Takahashi as Nice

Yūki 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:

2014, Yokohama.
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.

The second anime series, Re:␣Hamatora (Reply Hamatora), streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan last summer.
