K Project Gets New Anime, Stage Play, Dance Performance
posted on by Egan Loo
The "K -Do you know K?" event for the K media project announced on Saturday that production on a new animation project, a new stage play run, and a dance performance has been green-lit. Shingo Suzuki is returning as director and character designer at the studio GoHands for the new K Seven Stories anime. GoRA and GoHands are once again credited for the original story.
The stage play K -Lost Small World will run from July 22 to July 24 at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo. It will then move to the Kyoto Gekijō theater from July 30 to July 31. The play adapts Yukako Kabei's spinoff novel which tells how Misaki Yata and Saruhiko Fushimi met and parted ways. Kenichi Suemitsu is writing and directing the play. Keisuke Ueda will play Misaki Yata and Shintarō Anzai will play Saruhiko Fushimi.
The novel already inspired a manga from Yoru Ōkita in 2014.
The debut of the ChaLive (a wordplay on "character" and "live") dance performance was at the "K -Do you know K?" event on Saturday. It features original music and the performers ONDY as Yashiro Isana, Keito Okuyama as Misaki Yata, and yuto as Saruhiko Fushimi. The next performance will be at the seventh floor of the main Ikebukuro Animate store on June 10.
The K Official Supporters Clan will launch to commemorate K Seven Stories. More details will be provided this fall. There are also plans to release a short text story written by GoRA and an illustration by Suzuki.
Viz Media licensed the first K anime series, the K: Missing Kings sequel film, and the K: Return of Kings sequel series. Hulu and Neon Alley streamed the first K anime series and the K: Return of Kings sequel series.
