Kōsuke Azuma is also playing Yūma Mukami in the play. Two of the cast members are returning from the previous play, but most of the cast members are new.
The new play is running at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel's Club eX event hall in Tokyo from January 24-28. Yūsei Naruse is directing the play and Guiya Ohda wrote the script.
The second play, Diabolik Lovers~re:requiem~ (pictured right), ran in August 2016. The first Diabolik Lovers stage play originally ran at the Rikkōkai Theater in Tokyo's Shinagawa ward in August 2015.
Rejet's original Diabolik Lovers vampire drama CD and PlayStation Portable game project centers around the six sadistic Sakamaki vampire brothers. Yui Komori is a positive-thinking girl who nevertheless is troubled by seeing spirits and experiencing poltergeist phenomena. In her second year in high school, she transfers to a new school — a night school for entertainers and celebrities — due to her father's work. There are rumors that there are vampires among the student body, and Yui ends up living with the Sakamaki brothers.
The studio ZEXCS adapted the franchise into a television anime in 2013, and the second season, Diabolik Lovers More, Blood, premiered in September 2015. Crunchyroll streamed both series as they aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released both anime on home video with an English dub.
