The official website for the stage play adaptation of the Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School anime revealed new visuals for Riho Iida and Tsumugi Kudo as Aoi Asahina on Friday.

The site also revealed a visual of Shun Nishime as protagonist Makoto Naegi and a promotional video featuring the cast on Tuesday.

The cast includes:

  • Natsumi Okamoto as Kyōko Kirigiri
  • Taiyō Ayukawa as Jūzō Sakakura
  • Riho Kotani as Miaya Gekkōgahara
  • Anna Ishida as Ruruka Andō
  • Seira Nagashima and Saki Funaoka as Seiko Kimura
  • Nanami Yamashita and Rina Takahashi as Chisa Yukizome
  • Triten's Ittetsu as Daisaku Bandai
  • Keisuke Ōkubo as Great Gozu
  • Takashi Nagayama and Kenji Tamaki as Kōichi Kizakura
  • Buffalo Goro's Motohiro Takewaka as Kazuo Tengan
  • Hiroki Nakada as Kyōsuke Munakata
  • Sayaka Kanda as Junko Enoshima
  • Miori Ichikawa as Tōwa Monaka

Danganronpa 3 The Stage 2018 ~The End of Hope's Peak High School~ will run in Tokyo from July 20-23, Osaka from July 27-29, and again in Tokyo from August 3-13.

The story of the stage play will follow a killing game between members of the Future Foundation, like the anime's "Future Arc." InnocentSphere's Hideyuki Nishimori is directing and writing the scripts.

Unlike the first Danganronpa The Animation series, the Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School anime was not directly based on a Danganronpa game. Instead, it was divided into two arcs: Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Despair Arc, which told a prequel story starring the main characters from the Danganronpa 2 game, and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc, which told a sequel story following characters from the original Danganronpa game. Both arcs aired simultaneously in summer 2016. Funimation streamed both as they aired.

The original Danganronpa game inspired a stage play in 2014 and a rerun in 2016. Danganronpa 2 also inspired a stage play in 2015 and a rerun in March 2017.

The most recent game in the series, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, shipped in Japan on January 2017 and in the West in September. The game features a new cast and a different story from the Danganronpa 3 anime.
