Saiyuki Manga Inspires New Musical in September

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Main cast returns from Saiyūki Kageki-den -Burial-, Saiyūki Kageki-den -God Child- musicals

A new stage play musical adaptation of Kazuya Minekura's Saiyuki and Saiyuki Reload manga series will premiere in Tokyo in September.

Kaori Miura is writing the scripts and directing the new musical, which will play at the Sunshine Gekijō in Tokyo from September 17-23.

The musical's returning cast includes:

The Saiyuki manga previously inspired the Saiyuki Kageki-den -Burial- musical in January, as well as the Saiyuki Kageki-den -God Child- musical in May 2014. Before that, the manga was adapted into a stage play in 2008.

Minekura launched the Saiyuki Reload Blast sequel manga in Ichijinsha's Comic Zero Sum magazine in 2010, but she reduced the publishing schedule of the series starting in 2013 due to her health.
