Akira Amano’s Katekyou Hitman Reborn manga has remained one of the most popular titles in Weekly Shounen Jump magazine. And that claim is actually saying a lot as Jump also features Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, and many more. And now, it’s getting its own live-action stage play! This time, the new stage play features one very familiar voice returning as Reborn, and that’s his seiyuu, Neeko. She previously voiced the character in the popular TV anime, and now, she’s also playing him in the live-action stage play.
Joining the seiyuu is actor Ryouhei Takenaka, who will be playing the reluctant Mafioso, Tsunayoshi Sawada.
Officially titled Katekyou Hitman Reborn The Stage, this 2.5D play will have its first stop at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo. The theater will hold the first run from September 21-30, 2018. Then, their next stop will be Osaka’s Mielparque hall from October 3-6. Maruichirou Maruo is directing the 2.5D stage play, and is also writing its script as well.
