CYBER-DIVE-CONNECTION play to premiere in December

The official Twitter account for the Tsukiuta stage plays unveiled cast visuals for CYBER-DIVE-CONNECTION, the franchise's seventh stage play, last week. The cast for the two main groups Six Gravity and Procellarum will return from the sixth musical, which opens in Japan this week.

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 (replacing Yūki Tomotsune)

Kazumi Doi as Kai Fuzuki

Shūto Washio as Yō Hazuki

Yusuke Akiba as Yoru Nagatsuki

Yūsaku Satō as Rui Minazuki

Ryōki Miyama as Iku Kannazuki (replacing Tsubasa Sasa)

Other characters include:

Taiyō Ayukawa as Kuroda

Sōichirō Sorihashi as Nakai-san

Takuya Matsuoka as Croquette

The account also revealed a poster visual.

The seventh stage play will run at Hulic Hall in Tokyo from December 5 to 9, and then at Mielparque Hall in Osaka from December 13 to 16. Both the sixth and seventh plays star the members of the Six Gravity and Procellarum group.

The first stage play ran in April 2016 in "Black" and "White" versions focused on Six Gravity and Procellarum, respectively. The second stage performance ran in October 2016 in "Sakura Chapter" and "Moon Chapter" versions, both of which starred both groups but focused on different characters. The third play, School Revolution!, ran in March 2017, again with Black and White versions for the different groups. The fourth play, Lunatic Party, ran in October 2017. The fifth stage play, Rabbits Kingdom in November/December 2017, again featured Black and White versions, but in this case both versions starred both groups in the same story from different perspectives.

The sixth stage play, Kurenai Enishi, is running from October 18 to November 4 at the Shingawa Prince Stellar Ball in Tokyo. The play has Black and Red versions focused on Six Gravity and Procellarum, respectively.

The franchise already inspired vocal music CDs, duet CDs, drama CDs, and a 2016 television anime. 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).

Tsukiuta is part of the "2.5 dimensional" agency Tsukino Talent Production, or TsukiPro, which also spawned the TsukiPro the Animation television anime based on four of its other groups: SOARA, Growth, SolidS, and QUELL. The SolidS and QUELL groups are starring in a separate stage play series titled SolidS & Quell on Stage (S.Q.S), and its second episode will run in Japan from November 1-11 at Hulic Hall Tokyo.

The casts of the Tsukiuta and S.Q.S stage plays are holding a joint concert on December 26 and 27 at Omiya Sonic City in Saitama.
