Play to run for 12 performances in Tokyo from May 20-29

The official website for the stage play adaptation of Touya Mikanagi's Karneval manga revealed the play's cast and first visual (pictured below) on Friday.

The main cast includes:

Sena Kuramochi as Nai

Yūta Iiyama as Gareki!

Shūto Washio as Yogi

Yuka Okabayashi as Tsukumo

Takuya Kishimoto as Hirato

Additional cast members include:

Chihiro Kai as Tsubame
Takuto Ōmi as Yotaka
Misuzu Koitabashi as Tsubaki
Shion Kuroki as Meiga

The play, titled Karneval Hajimari no Rinbukyoku (Karneval The Rondo of the Beginning), will run for 12 performances between May 20-29 at the Owl Spot theater in Tokyo. Each performance will also have an after event. General seating costs 7,000 yen (about US$63) and special S seats cost 8,500 yen (US$76).

Mikanagi launched the fantasy action series in the Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine in 2008, and Ichijinsha will publish the 17th volume on April 25.

The series inspired a television anime in 2013, and Funimation released the complete series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America in June 2014. Funimation describes the story:

Armed with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue, Nai searches for someone dear to him. After a run in with a pick-pocket named Gareki!, the two find themselves involved in a government set-up that leaves them wanted criminals. Desperate and on-the-run, Nai and Gareki! turn to the country's most powerful defense organization – "Circus" – for help.

Yen Press is publishing the manga in English, and it will release the fourth compiled volume on March 22.
