The February issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine announced on Saturday that Kairi Shimotsuki's Brave10 manga is getting a stage play adaptation this summer. Shimotsuki drew an original artwork for the announcement (pictured below).
The website for the television anime adaptation of the manga had announced in March 2012 that a stage play adaptation was in production, but the site never posted any further news about the adaptation.
The same February issue of Monthly Comic Gene published the final chapter of Shimotsuki's Brave10 Tawamure spinoff manga on Saturday. Shimotsuki launched the manga in the magazine in June 2016. The spinoff series focuses on Kirigakure Saizō, Sarutobi Sasuke, and Hanzō Hattori.
The original manga's story reimagines the legendary adventures of the 10 brave warriors assembled by the warlord Sanada Yukimura in the year 1600, in the middle of Japan's tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era. Shimotsuki launched the original manga in 2006, and Kadokawa published the manga's eighth and final volume in 2011.
Shimotsuki launched the Brave10 S sequel manga in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011, and ended the series in March 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's ninth volume (pictured at right) on March 26.
