New play based on Kairi Shimotsuki's manga features returning cast

The official website for the stage play adaptation of Kairi Shimotsuki's Brave10 manga revealed on Sunday that the play is getting a sequel. The sequel, titled Brave10: Tomoshibi (Lamplight), will run at Tokyo's Nakano Zero Dai Hall from July 26-29. Shimonotsuki drew a visual to commemorate the announcement.

The play will feature the following 11 returning cast members:

The staff will also reveal more cast members at a later date. Jun Yoriko is again directing the play, penning the script, and handling video.

The first play ran from June 28 to July 2 at the Zenrosai Hall Space Zero in Tokyo.

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) in March 2016.

The original Brave10 manga inspired a television anime in 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. NIS America released a Blu-ray Disc box of Brave10 in 2013.
