Diabolik Lovers Stage Play Casts Ayato, Kanato, Laito, Yui

Sengoku Paradise Kiwami's Guiya Ōta scripts play to run in Tokyo in August

The official blog for the Diabolik Lovers stage play announced the first set of cast members on Thursday. The play will run at the Rikkōkai Theater in Tokyo's Shinagawa ward from August 26 to 30.

The first set of cast members are:

Taiki Yamazaki as Ayato Sakamaki

Shōhei Hashimoto as Kanato Sakamaki

Katsuhiko Ibuka as Laito Sakamaki

Ayumi Takamura as Yui Komori

The production team plans to announce the second set of cast members in mid-April. Ticket details will be announced next week.

Guiya Ōta (Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) is writing the script, and Yūsei Naruse (Yowamushi Pedal stage play, Aquarian Age live-action film) is producing the play at Office Inveider.

Rejet's original Diabolik Lovers vampire drama CD and PSP game project centers around the six sadistic Sakamaki vampire brothers. Yui Komori is a positive-thinking girl who nevertheless is troubled by seeing spirits and experiencing poltergeist phenomena. In her second year in high school, she transfers to a new school — a night school for entertainers and celebrities — due to her father's work. There are rumors that there are vampires among the student body, and Yui ends up living with the Sakamaki brothers.

The studio ZEXCS adapted the franchise into a television anime in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Sentai Filmworks released the television anime on DVD with an English dub and subtitles in December.
