Play about quiz competitions to run in early May

The official website for the stage play adaptation of Iqura Sugimoto's Nana Maru San Batsu (literally, "7 O 3 X" or "7 Right, 3 Wrong) manga unveiled a key visual showing the cast in costume on Friday.

The cast includes:

Yukito Nishi as Shiki Koshiyama

Ayane Suzuki as Mari Fukami

Ryōta Ozawa as Gakuto Sasajima

Kaito Nakamura as Chisato Mikuriya

Shun Ishida as Kunimitsu Ōkura

Shōjirō Yokoi as Seiji Fukami

Rihona Katō as Yuki Kōzuki (not pictured in costume)

Gōta Ishida as Yūta Machida

Masashi Suwa as Daisuke Inoue

Kazunari Tosa as Yōsuke Ashiya

Hissanori Yoshida and Yūichi Hose (double cast) as Takumi Niina

The play will premiere in Zenrosai Hall Space Zero in Tokyo from May 4-9. Theater company Europe Kikaku's Tomohiro Ohtoshi is screenwriting and directing the project.

A flyer at AnimeJapan 2017 describes the series:

The last thing freshman Shiki Koshiyama expected was to be asked to join the Bunzo High School "New Student Fast Finger Quiz Championship." A bookwork at heart, he hates being the center of attention and shudders at the mere thought of participating. To add insult to injury, his classmate Mari Fukami overwhelms her competition by pressing the buzzer even before the entire question is read. "It's too late to hit the buzzer after you know the answer. A split second is all it takes to determine who wins or loses," she declares.

After observing Mari for a while, Shiki discovers a way to determine the answers to a quiz. His world expands as he meets colleagues and senior members of the Quiz Club, as well as their formidable rival Chisato Mikuriya. He experiences the joys of answering correctly and the frustrations of not getting to the buzzer quickly enough. He and his colleagues hone not only their knowledge, but also various techniques as they pursue victory in the world of competitive quiz.

Shiki Koshiyama is about to dedicate his teenage years to quizzes. You too should try becoming the next quiz champion!

Sugimoto launched the manga in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine in 2010, and Kadokawa published the 15th compiled book volume on March 2.

The manga inspired a television anime adaptation and Crunchyroll streamed it under the title Fastest Finger First last July.
