Mr. Osomatsu Anime Gets Stage Play Adaptation This Fall
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A website launched on Thursday to announce that the Mr. Osomatsu (Osomatsu-san) television anime series is inspiring a stage play in September and October titled Osomatsu-san on STAGE ~SIX MEN'S SHOW TIME~.
The play will star:
Shōta Takasaki as Osomatsu
Yūsuke Kashiwagi as Karamatsu
Keisuke Ueda as Choromatsu
Ryō Kitamura as Ichimatsu
Ren Ozawa as Jūshimatsu
Ryotaro Akazawa as Todomatsu
Shin'ichi Ono is directing the play.
The play will run for seven showings at the Umeda Arts Theater in Osaka from September 29-October 3, and then for 14 showings at the Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi in Tokyo from October 13-23. Premium seats with a bonus present retail for 9,800 yen (about US$93), and general seats retail for 6,800 yen (US$64).
Fujio Akatsuka's original Osomatsu-kun manga and "high tension comedy" TV anime centered on the Matsuno household, which has six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets). The original series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old.
The Mr. Osomatsu show re-imagines the original manga and TV anime with the sextuplets as adults. The series premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The anime series is also inspiring a new ongoing manga adaptation by Masako Shitara and an upcoming PlayStation Vita game.
