posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Sara ni Sarazanmai ~Ai to Yokubō no Stage~ (Sarazanmai Once More ~A Stage of Love and Desire~), the stage play adaptation of Kunihiko Ikuhara's original television anime Sarazanmai, revealed a new visual and photos of five more cast members on Saturday.
The new cast visuals include:
Gaku Takamoto as Mabu Akutsu
Taiga Fukazawa as Haruka Yasaka
Shōjirō Yokoi as Chikai Kuji
Teiko (reprising her role from the television anime) as Sara Azuma
Previously revealed cast visuals include:
Ginga Shitara as Toi Kuji
Jun Noguchi as Enta Jinnouchi
Uchū Kazu will also play Keppi.
The play will run in Theater 1010 in Tokyo from November 28 to December 1, and in the Cool Japan Park Osaka WW Hall on December 7 and 8. Naohiro Ise is directing the play and penning the script, and Ikuhara is supervising.
The setting is Asakusa. One day, second-years in middle school Kazuki Yasaka, Toi Kuji, and Enta Jinnai meet Keppi, a mysterious kappa-like creature, who steals their shirikodama and transforms them into kappas. "To return to your original forms," Keppi tells them, "you must fight the zombies and take the shirikodama from them." Can the boys connect with each other and steal the zombies' shirikodama?! At the same time, something is happening at the police box where Reo Niiboshi and Mabu Akutsu work. This is the story of three boys who can't connect with someone important to them, learning about what it truly means to do so.
Ikuhara directed the series and, along with Teruko Utsumi, also oversaw the series scripts. Nobuyuki Takeuchi (Fireworks) served as chief director. The studios MAPPA (Yuri!!! on Ice, In This Corner of the World, Rage of Bahamut Genesis) and Lapin Track (Yuri Kuma Arashi) produced the series.
