The play will also feature the "F6" versions of the sextuplets, who will be played by a different cast.
The F6 version's cast includes:
- Yūki Izawa as F6 Osomatsu
- Masanari Wada as F6 Karamatsu
- Kento Ono as F6 Choromatsu
- Yūya Asano as F6 Ichimatsu
- Shinichi Wagō as F6 Jūshimatsu
- Yūki Nakayama as F6 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 15 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). The final showing will also have a live screening at various theaters across Japan.
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.
