The official Twitter account for the stage adaptations of the Tsukiuta franchise announced the cast members for the franchise's sixth and seventh stage plays last week. Both plays will star the members of the Six Gravity and Procellarum group.
The cast for the Six Gravity group includes:
- Kentarō Menjō as Hajime Mutsuki
- Gaku Matsuda as Haru Yayoi
- Tatsuki Jōnin as Aoi Satsuki
- Ryū Kiyama as Kakeru Shiwasu
- Lui Yokoo as Koi Kisaragi
- Ryōhei Takenaka as Arata Uzuki
The cast for the Procellarum group includes:
- TAKA as Shun Shimotsuki
- Kazumi Doi as Kai Fuzuki
- Shūto Washio as Yō Hazuki
- Yusuke Akiba as Yoru Nagatsuki
- Yūsaku Satō as Rui Minazuki
- as Iku Kannazuki Ryōki Miyama
The sixth stage play, Kurenai Enishi, will run at the Shingawa Prince Stellar Ball in Tokyo from October 18 to November 4. The seventh stage play, CYBER-DIVE-CONNECTION, will run at Hulic Hall in Tokyo from December 5 to 9, and then at Mielparque Hall in Osaka from December 13 to 16.
The first stage play ran in April 2016, and the second and third stage plays ran in March 2017 in "Black" and "White" versions. The fourth and fifth stage plays also ran in a "Black" version last October, and a "White" version in December.
The production previously received a threat note in December during the fifth stage play's run that promised harm to fans if the production was not stopped. As a result, the production cancelled the sales of all merchandise and same-day tickets for the remaining performances of the play, but the final performances themselves still took place as scheduled.
The franchise already inspired vocal music CDs, duet CDs, drama CDs, a DVD of a fan festival with the cast, and an artbook. The franchise inspired a television anime in July 2016. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
The franchise has both a male version and a female version. The male version centers around the Tokyo idol unit Six Gravity (composed of characters representing December to May) and the sibling rival unit Procellarum (composed of idols born in Western Japan and representing June to November).
