New Haikyu!! Stage Play Revealed For This Fall
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
A new stage play adaptation of Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! volleyball manga has been green-lit. The stage play's full title is Hyper-Projection Gekijō Haikyu!! "Karasuno, Fukkatsu!" (Hyper-Projection Stage Play Haikyu!! "Karasuno Returns!"). The play will debut this fall.
The story will feature Nekoma High and Date Tech High, as well as the destined "Battle at the Trash Dump" match between Karasuno and Nekoma, and the interhigh qualifiers.
"Worry Kinoshita" is directing the stage play, and Norihito Nakayashiki and Kinoshita are writing the script. Both return from last year's Haikyu!! stage play adaptation. The cast will be announced at a later date.
The previous stage play ran at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo and Osaka's Theater Brava! last November, and then at the Tagajō Shimin Kaikan's Great Hall at Miyagi's Tagajo City Cultural Center last December. Like the new play, last year's play was billed as a "hyper-projection play," with video projections that allow for manga-styled speech bubbles, as well as views of the stage floor, and a revolving stage.
Production I.G's anime adaptation of Haruichi Furudate's volleyball manga premiered in April 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired and Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc last June and August. The second season of the anime premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America.
A third season will premiere this fall.
The anime franchise received two compilation films on last July and September.
