Hiro Mashima’s beloved fantasy manga, Fairy Tail, is getting the live-action stage play treatment, also known as the 2.5D play. As Japanese 2.5D plays would often feature its actors in costumes which are very similar to the original source materials, it would often get fans hyped up for the play, and Fairy Tail is certainly no different, as they reveal actor Shuuto Miyazaki in costume as Fairy Tail’s resident dragon slayer, Natsu Dragneel.
The play is in good hands, as director Akiko Kodama has a lot of experience in directing Shounen Manga-turned Stage Plays, as he previously directed the Live Spectacle Naruto stage play, which also visited Singapore and Malaysia last year. The play will run from April 30 until May 9 at the Sunshine Theater in Ikebukuro.
The website, which revealed Shuuto Miyazaki as Natsu, also revealed which actors are playing which Fairy Tail characters. Here they are:
- Atsushi Shiramata as Gray Fullbuster
- Naoya Gomoto as Brain
- Yamato Furuya as Midnight
- Ikkei Yamamoto as Cobra
- Kento Ono as Hibiki Lates
- Ren Ozawa as Lyon Vastia
- Hirofumi Araki as Jellal Fernandes
Based on the characters revealed, it seems that they are going with the Oracion Seis arc from the anime/ manga, however, as the play’s official story has not been revealed yet, we still don’t know if it really is the Oracion Seis arc or a brand new original story. More will be revealed in the future.
