posted on by Kiara Valdez
The official website for the upcoming Kyo kara Maoh! stage play, titled Kyo kara Maoh!: Maō Saikōrin (I'm Demon King From Today On!: Second Advent of the Demon King), announced the main cast on Wednesday.
The cast includes:
- Seiya as Yuri Shibuya
- Kentarō Kanesaki as Gwendal
- Yūta Higuchi as Wolfram
- Gaku Shindō as Josak
- Yoshikazu Kotani as Günter
- Taiishi Sugie as Rick
- Shoichiro Akaboshi as Hyscliff
The musical will run in Tokyo's Space Zero from October 1 to October 12. Tickets for the performances will go on sale on April 29.
As with the 2013 play, the new play will be directed by Shintarō Sugano, who will also write the scripts.
The story of the original novels revolves around Yuri Shibuya, who was sent to a fantasy world after being dunked in a toilet. There, he is told that he is destined to be the next demon king, as his hair and eyes are black. Although Yuri is quite the believer in peace and is against violence, the country he has arrived in is on the brink of war.
Geneon Entertainment Inc. licensed the anime, and released it until it ceased all business in North America. Funimation rescued the license and distributed the anime once again in North America, although the company's license for the series expired in 2011. Tomo Takabayashi began the light novel series with illustrations by Temari Matsumoto in 2000, and the series is still ongoing.
