Like many anime, manga, and video game titles these days, Koyoharu Gotoge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga is also getting a live-action stage play. 2.5D plays, which are the stage adaptations of anime, gaming, and manga titles, are getting more and more popular these days, so it’s no surprise that the series is also getting one. And now, the staff have finally revealed the play’s new key visual featuring Tanjiro!
The play will feature Ryota Kobayashi as Tanjiro Kamado, as well as Akari Takaishi as Nezuko Kamado. They also revealed the two siblings in new character visuals as well:
Kenichi Suemitsu, who previously directed the Touken Ranbu plays, is also directing the project. As for the music, Shunsuke Wada, who provided the score for Live Spectacle Naruto, is also working on this adaptation. The play will first hit the Galaxy Theater in Tokyo from January 18 to 26, 2020. It will then head to Kobe’s AiiA 2.5 Theater from January 31 to February 2. Advance ticket sales will open from November 11 to 17, but only for Shonen Jump annual readers.
