Play to run in Tokyo, Osaka next May

Idea Factory's Collar X Malice visual novel is inspiring a stage play titled Collar X Malice -Okazaki Kei-hen- (Kei Okazaki Edition). The play will run at Tokyo's Theater Sun Mall from May 2-12, 2019, and then in Osaka's Matsushita IMP Hall from May 17-19.

Junko Kimura is writing the script and Yūki Higuchi is directing. As the title implies, the play will focus on the character Kei Okazaki.

Otomate released the original otome mystery visual novel in Japan in August 2016, and Aksys Games released the game in English in July 2017. Aksys Games describes the story:

A dangerous shadow organization launches a campaign of fear and violence in the city of Shinjuku, pushing society to the brink of chaos. As a young police officer tasked with restoring order, you become the target of an attack, and have a poisonous collar attached to your neck. With the situation spiraling out of control and time running out, five mysterious strangers appear to aid you in your quest for the truth. Who can you trust? Will you be able to save yourself and the soul of Shinjuku from the clutches of oblivion?

The Collar X Malice Unlimited fandisc — which included an interlude, sequel story, and three side stories — shipped for PlayStation Vita in Japan in July.
