The official Twitter account for the live-action adaptations of Tatsuya Kiuchi's Dansui! swimming manga revealed a visual for the upcoming stage play on Wednesday.

The manga also inspired a television series adaptation that is currently airing. Both adaptations star:

  • Middle row: Tomoru Akazawa as Haruyoshi Koganei, Hisanori Satō as Yuta Taki, Ren Ozawa as Mitsuki Taira
  • Bottom row: Mario Kuroba as Homare Nishina, Ryōsuke Ikeoka as Ichitora Jingu, Tomoki Hirose as Ryoya Kawasaki

The cast also includes:

  • Keisuke Kaminaga as Daniel Harada
  • Kyōhei Saitō as Masaki Ichimura
  • Yūdai Nasuda as Eisuke Murakami
  • Hisanao Tsukayama as Ichirō Takaura
  • Keisuke Sakurai as Jirō Takaura
  • Kaisei Kamimura as Shintarō Mori
  • Ryūichi Ōura as Shinichirō Hanyū
  • Moro Morooka as Kunio Isomura

The television series premiered on NTV in January. Yōichi Matsunaga (CRAZY, Do-S Deka, Debusen) is directing the series, and Erika Yoshida (Tiger & Bunny, Trickster, Heroine Shikkaku) is writing the scripts.

The stage play will run at Tokyo's Theatre 1010 from May 11 to May 21 and at Osaka's Morinomiya Piloti Hall from May 25 to May 28.

Kiuchi launched the manga on Hakusensha's "Hana LaLa online" website in July 2012, and Hakusensha published the manga's sixth volume in print on December 20. The youth manga follows the members of a men's swimming club at a high school in Tokyo.
