posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Tatsunoko Productions' Infini-T Force anime franchise announced on Saturday that a stage play adaptation has been green-lit. The play will run at the IMA Hall in Tokyo from August 29 to September 2. Takehiro Yoshida of LIPS*S and ILLUMINUS is directing the play and penning the script.
The stage play will mix 3D digital videos, dance, acrobatics, and illusions.
Tatsunoko Production announced in March 2016 that its Infini-T Force ~Mirai no Byōsen~ (Infini-T Force: Arc to the Future) manga was inspiring a "full 3DCG" anime project. The television series had its world premiere at Anime Expo last July, and began airing in Japan last October. The project also spawned a film that opened on February 24.
Viz Media licensed television anime and film. Viz Media's Infini-T Force license includes digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise for North America, Latin America and Oceania. The license also includes theatrical distribution for the film.
The project celebrates Tatsunoko Production's 55th anniversary. The anime features the heroes from four earlier Tatsunoko Production anime: Tekkaman, the Space Knight; Casshan (Casshern); Gatchaman; and Hurricane Polymar.
